Catch anyone walking in the door for the first time you will see their eyes light up, as one of Suffolk’s most unique event venues it has definitely got plenty of WOW factor.

The area has been designed with huge attention to detail from the silk-lined walls and leather sofas to the fabulous lighting and black starlit ceiling. In the evening, part of the fun is to turn down the lights (which can be themed to match the colour scheme), turn up the music and the haze machine and party.

Gwenny, the Event Organiser, has a wealth of experience when it comes to organising weddings and she will be with you every step of the way from the first planning meeting to the day itself. The Kesgrave Hall team will run the day with huge attention to detail allowing the wedding party to relax and enjoy their special day.The menus have been specially chosen by executive head chef Stuart Oliver, with delicious food cooked in the Hangar’s dedicated kitchen. Photo opportunities abound in the upper garden which is dedicated to weddings, parties and events in the Hangar.

To complete the picture Milsoms Kesgrave Hall has 23 bedrooms which can be booked for the bridal party. Another idea is to arrive and stay the night before by booking The Bunker with its own terrace and enjoy an informal barbecue with family and close friends.
