All wedding venues in Pennines
Ipswich, which sits on the estuary of the River Orwell, is the county town of Suffolk and one of the oldest towns in England. In Roman times the port of Ipswich was a vital communication link with inland areas, reached via the areas' two larger rivers, the Gipping and the Orwell. Finding its feet during the 7th and 8th centuries under Anglo-Saxon rule, Ipswich rose to become an important medieval coastal town. Geoffrey Chaucer, a famous son of Ipswich, satirised the Ipswich merchants in his famous 'Canterbury Tales', but what he thought of wedding venues in Ipswich remains undiscovered.
Ipswich stands apart from other modernised town centres in that many of its ancient historic buildings can still be seen. Those located in the waterfront area exhibit architectural features which echo the town's long maritime history. Couples seeking a traditional wedding location, perhaps incorporating a romantic nautical flavour too, will find Ipswich can not only provide an exquisite location for your event, but is also close to major ferry ports if you are planning a continental honeymoon getaway.
Modern Ipswich has a significant Asian population and thus would make an ideal location for any bride and groom looking to plan an Asian wedding. Couples looking to arrange a funky, upbeat celebration when they get hitched will also find plenty that will appeal.
Venue-hunting partners tying the knot will be spoilt for choice with wedding venues in Ipswich. But just in case they don't find what they are looking for then what about a ceremony and reception in Hintlesham, Wherstead, Leavenheath or Stowmarket. Lavish and exotic venues include a manor house or country hall, whilst mid-range options include a rural farm, historic building, or something unusual such as university or guildhall. And for those arranging an affordable wedding, the area boasts many hotels and inns at reasonable prices.
