Butley Priory Suffolk Wedding

Butley Priory is a relaxed wedding venue, that is as close as getting married in your own home. It used to be a medieval monastic house near Butley in Suffolk, England called Butley Abbey. Only the gatehouse remains, which has been converted into a private house and wedding venue. The bride and groom had first found the venue via Air BnB as a place for a weekend away, it was then decided that wouldn’t it be ideal to host their relaxed wedding!

The bride and groom and guests stayed over the weekend and got ready in adjoining rooms. The groom went off for a quick swim, whilst everyone else grabbed a quick salad lunch in the large kitchen. The bride’s friends put the finishing touches to the naked wedding cake. The bride, with friends set up the table décor and then went to change into her bridal gown.

Guests arrived, and watched the flower girls (and boy!) scatter petals and walk down the aisle. The bride entered with her father in full Scottish kilt. After exchanging vows and readings from friends and family, there was a short champagne reception in the grounds of Butley Priory. Later on in the day, it started to rain, but luckily the guests had sat down for their wedding breakfast in the gazebo. Aubergine dip, hummus, pita breads, smoked haddock and potato fritters was served for starters, followed by chermoula marinated BBQ sea bream and Moroccan tuna loin and cabbage salad.

And there was a huge roaring fire in the main house to keep the guests warm.

Here are some favourite images from the day. Enjoy!
