Exciting new venues for 2012
We are extremely fortunate to work at such a variety of beautiful venues throughout East Anglia. We have been catering at many of these venues for a number of years.
We are always thrilled to work at new locations and have been invited to work at the following venues as one of their recommended caterers.
A description from the Butley Priory website:
Tucked away in the forests and heath lands of Suffolk's Heritage Coast lies one of East Anglia's best kept secrets, a wild and fantastic location called Butley Priory. Originally an Augustinian Monastery (dating back to 1171) it now provides an incomparable wedding and event venue, with superbly comfortable accommodation. We feel that we are unrivalled for beauty, history, glamour and romance! We can offer either an intimate Winter Wedding with blazing log fires and candles, or a dreamy summer affair with champagne on the lawn and a feast served in our fairytale marquee. We specialise in providing an individual service for individual people.
A description from the Hylands House website:
Licensed for civil ceremonies and receptions since 1999, Hylands is the perfect setting for your special day. With a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, the surroundings take your breath away, and the house provides an elegant backdrop for photographs you’ll treasure forever. Our staff offer a professional and experienced service, and work with you to plan the day that you want.
Several rooms on the ground floor of Hylands House are licensed for Civil Ceremonies and Civil Partnership Ceremonies. These include the beautifully ornate Drawing Room and elegant Library, which provide exquisite settings for ceremonies with up to 80 guests. Alternatively, you may prefer the intimacy of the Small Dining Room or Boudoir, which are ideal for ceremonies with up to 35 guests.
A description from the Otley Hall website:
Otley Hall, a grade I listed historic house in Suffolk, has a long and distinguished history and is situated in ten acres of beautiful gardens. We are licensed to hold civil ceremonies and have three rooms for this purpose. The Great Hall with original 16th century features overlooks the rose and croquet lawns and can hold 60. The Gosnold Suite, adjacent to the main building holds 90, and the Linenfold Parlour, lined with superb linenfold wood panelling is perfect for more intimate occasions and holds 25.
A description from the Vaulty Manor website:
Vaulty Manor is a beautiful setting for your wedding or special occasion. A 300 year old galleried barn for your civil ceremony or drinks reception leads through to our light oak Baronial Hall where your wedding breakfast, your banquet or dinner will be held. With exclusive use you really are the centre of attention.....
Seating up to 250 guests for ceremony and sit down meal we are one of the largest Essex barns licenced for civil ceremonies. For a more intimate wedding the Baronial Hall can be halved in size with oak and glass doors.
Vaulty Manor is perfect for weddings of any size from as little as 20 to as many as 250 guests with even more guests able to come to the evening reception if you wish.
