One of the most significant and special days of your life is your wedding day. After weeks, months or even years of planning, it can be hugely disappointing that it’s all over in one single day. So what do we suggest? Simple really…At Woodhall Manor we’ve created the ideal option for anyone wanting their day to last just that little bit longer – the two day wedding!
Why choose a two day wedding?
Honestly… it makes perfect sense when you think about it. On your wedding day, you invite all the people that you love most – your closest friends and family. So, why not make the most of this opportunity to bring them all together by holding a two day wedding celebration.
At many weddings, guests will travel a long distance in order to join you to celebrate your marriage, so we say make their journey worthwhile and invite them to celebrate with you for not one, but two nights. From lunchtime on the day before the big ‘I Do’ you can invite your core group of friends and family to join you at our stunning venue. Host a traditional English afternoon tea in one of our beautiful lounges. Forget all about any last minute nerves, and let everyone get together and enjoy having the run of the manor to yourself.
Practice makes perfect
If you’re planning a rehearsal the night before, then a dinner afterwards is a great way to spend the evening, allowing the wedding party to do final run throughs and preparations, and then gather everyone together for celebratory fizz and an evening meal. With 14 luxury bedrooms, there’s space to enjoy a hassle free, relaxing dinner, and then head to the bar for a cheeky nightcap, or maybe some fun and games before hitting the sack.
The manor is all yours
On the day of the wedding, enjoy a hearty Suffolk breakfast to set you up for the day. Pack the gents off for some country pursuits or a round of golf and let the ladies get down to the serious business of pampering. Get ready in the sophisticated surroundings of our suites, and have hair styled and makeup applied in comfort and style.
You’ve got the run of the Manor to yourself to enjoy and explore all day long so take a walk through the gardens, capture some pre-ceremony photographs of the bride and her bridesmaids, or just relish the peace and tranquillity our stunning surroundings afford.
Whether you’ve decided to get married indoors or outside, once the rest of your guests arrive, you’ll be carried away in your magical day, enjoying your serene surroundings, and taking your vows in front of your nearest and dearest.
After the ceremony, you can mingle with your guests and enjoy a drinks reception either indoors or outside. You’ve then a sumptuous 3-course wedding breakfast to enjoy, not forgetting evening food laid on for everyone, leaving your guests wanting for nothing. With private use of our bar following your evening reception, you can dance the night away, or retire for cocktails. As the party draws to a close, you can retreat to your beautiful suite.
Your gorgeous wedding celebrations will be capped with a full Suffolk breakfast for all your resident guests where you can swap tales from the day before, and take a sneak peek at everyone’s photos before bidding a fond farewell and setting off on your journey as a married couple.
