When staying at Sibton Park, the luxury country house wedding venue is exclusive to you and your guests. This place is all yours, so spread through it and make it your own.
From Sibton Manor House, the stately home where lavish meals and long bathes are taken, to the Walled Garden, where family and friends are stowed away in pure comfort. Games rooms and a swimming pool and hot tub to amuse until things get going.
Sibton Park Manor House was developed from the 17th Century on land to the east of Sibton Abbey, a picturesque ruin itself dating from 1150. The current Country house was built in the Greek manner by Robert Sayer, once Sheriff of Suffolk, to replace an earlier Queen Anne house and features giant pilasters and a central bay of full height Ionic columns forming an open semi-circular portico to create a dramatic entrance for you and your wedding guests.
The big day moves from The Orangery to the many private terraces where toasts are made and pictures are taken. A walk through archways in the Walled Garden to reach the spot you decided to greet guests. An intimate wedding venue in nature, where Ionic columns and restored architectural features contrast with pheasants, deers, cows and, fingers crossed, the doves your ordered.
White petals thrown overhead and outfit changes in the 50 bedrooms. Cocktail parties and receptions under the stars, then shawls around shoulders as it gets cold and a retreat to one of the many reception rooms with limestone fireplaces. Bacon sandwiches prepared by the chef at dawn and a sleepy wave goodbye to the couple.
Paradise has been found - and happily, it’s not a million miles away. Rather it’s in a sweet corner of the Suffolk countryside, at Wilderness Reserve.
