Set in 1,800 acres of picturesque National Trust Parkland, The Ickworth Hotel is ideally suited for civil ceremonies and wedding receptions.
Whether you are planning a smaller intimate ceremony and reception with a gathering of friends and family or looking for that perfect exclusive venue to celebrate in style then take a look at what we can offer.
What better way to begin your married life than to celebrate at a luxury family hotel? Whether you are planning a summer wedding with chilled Champagne on the terrace, or a cosy winter gathering sipping mulled wine in the Drawing Room, The Ickworth Hotel provides the perfect setting all year round.
For over 8 years, we at Ickworth Hotel have entertained and looked after hundreds of Brides and Grooms on their very special day, creating the fairytale wedding and forging an everlasting bond between guest and hotel.
With an ultimate memory of their most important day we see our friends returning to celebrate family christenings and anniversaries, and to this end we are blessed with the loyalty and trust that both local families and distinguished guests place in us to make their important occasion special.
Your wedding is no exception.
From the moment you contact us you will feel confident in the fact that you will be dealing with professional individuals who have several years experience in looking after you; most importantly they will be friendly, down to earth and will be there for you.
On behalf of the hotel, we would like to congratulate you on your forthcoming wedding and to pass on our best wishes for the future.
Whilst in the past we have mainly looked after smaller wedding affairs, we now have the opportunity of offering beautiful marquees for your wedding celebrations.
Located just a ten minute walk from the hotel, The Dower House (with its 11 bedroom apartments) is the ideal location for your special day. Situated on the lawn of this private house, the marquee gives you total privacy in immaculate surroundings.
