Throughout the whole process nothing was too much trouble for Danielle and the team. All elements of the process were handled professionally but in a very relatable way. The day was nothing but incredible, everything was handled seamlessly and if there were any challenges I have no idea about them!!! I can not recommend The Venue enough and if you are just considering having a look, stop what you are doing, pick up the phone and call them!

2017 Testimonials

“Truly the most amazing venue with such a warm feeling created by Becky and her team. Our day was simply perfect. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Becky. Being that I have such a huge fear of spiders, she had the ceiling of the kiln room swept and cobwebs removed! We both can’t thank you all enough.” Claire – Wedding Date: 9th September 2017

“Thank you to Becky and the team for your help in organising our wedding day. The day flowed with ease and without any hitches. I cannot find fault in anything, our day was perfect. Booking the ‘all-inclusive’ package meant we didn’t have to worry about booking our own caterer, chair covers or DJ. Each supplier was first class and provided everything we asked for. We received so many compliments about the venue and food. The venue is stunning, our photos are so lovely. The food Jamie Lee Smith Catering put on for us was beautiful, everybody loved it. We couldn’t be happier.” Helen Procter – Wedding Date: 26.08.2017

“We don’t know quite how to thank Becky and everyone at The Venue enough. I knew from the second I arrived to visit for the first time that this was the place I wanted to get married. The setting is beautiful and there are so many lovely places for photo opportunities. Becky was so organised and incredibly helpful throughout the year leading up to our wedding and made planning it completely stress free! Furthermore, they were so accommodating about letting us organise extra things for our day such as a macaron tower and bouncy castle – something other venues I’d visited had said we couldn’t have. On the day, everything went perfectly and it looked stunning. The little extra details organised by The Venue are such a nice touch. Since our wedding we have had so many comments about how amazing The Venue was, how beautiful it is and how fantastic the staff are. They were all so friendly and definitely did a great job of looking after the bride! I am hoping someone else will get married here just so I can go back! We would highly recommend The Venue to anyone planning their wedding. Many thanks again.” Vicky & Aaron – Wedding Date: 18th August 2017

“Becky, I just wanted to send this message to say a very big thank you to you and your team at The Venue for making our daughters wedding unforgettable. Your attention to detail, checking that we were all catered for made the reception work so smoothly. We had so many positive comments from our guests, about the venue and the catering. The ability to gain access the day before you set up and again on the Sunday morning to clear out stuff was brilliant and just helped us enormously. I have enjoyed seeing posts on Facebook especially their last dance. Thank you once again, we will be recommending The Venue you those who are looking in Suffolk.” Mother of the bride – Wedding Date: 05.08.2017

“Roger and I got married at The Venue at Kersey Mill on 19th September 2015 and our day was everything we could have ever hoped and wished for. When we started looking at venues we had a clear idea of what we wanted – something with character, romance and class, but without being too OTT or grand, as that doesn’t really fit our personalities. When we arrived at The Venue we just knew straight away it was the venue for us – it is beautiful! So, after falling in love with the building, the Kiln Room, the layout, the grounds we just hoped we could do everything that we wanted there…and we certainly could. We met Becky, who is so calm, helpful, friendly and completely serene. Our concerns about having a meal that wasn’t too formal, ensuring we could offer our guests a certain amount of paid-for drinks, our decorative styles etc. – every detail – she assured us we would make work and it would all be perfect. I am a bit of a ‘list-maker’ and a rather obsessive organiser, but Becky was brilliant with this – any time I had a question or a worry, she would answer straight away and totally reassure me. I felt completely at ease throughout the planning process, knowing that The Venue had everything under control. Working with Becky and Jamie we decided on a sit-down BBQ as a meal and the food was absolutely delicious! We had a tasting session before the wedding and we couldn’t wait to share this tasty food with all our guests. On the lead up to the big day we had a planning meeting with Becky to run-through everything and it made me feel so calm about it all. On the day, every little detail was just perfect. The room looked stunning, we had gorgeous photos taken in the grounds and when Roger and I got to the drinks Reception, Becky was waiting with two personalised glasses (a lovely surprise gift from The Venue) of bubbles. All the staff made sure everything ran to time, the food was served to all our guests and the glasses were kept topped up with wine and bubbles! All the waiting staff were so friendly and helpful to all our guests. Roger and I have received so many messages saying how well fed and watered they were – a couple even saying they have never had such wonderful food at a wedding before – and how stunning they thought The Venue was. The Venue at Kersey Mill is a truly special place to celebrate your wedding and Roger and I are so happy that we chose it as our venue. We had the best day ever, the perfect start to married life! A huge, giant, massive thank you to Becky, Jamie and all the wonderful team at The Venue. Lots of love Mr & Mrs Burton 🙂 x” Mr & Mrs Burton – Wedding Date: 19.09.2015

We have had many comments on how nice the venue was and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this ass a wedding venue to anyone else!

I stumbled upon The Venue when searching online and my then fiancé and I went along to a wedding open day. When we arrived we were greeted by Jill who was very helpful in showing us around the venue and the grounds. We were immediately taken in by how beautiful and quaint the venue was whilst still being able to offer us ample space for all of our guests. Once we had decided to go ahead and book our wedding, Becky the venue’s events planner was endlessly helpful with replying to all my emails and queries. She always had time for us if we needed to pop in and try anything out beforehand and ensured that everything went to plan on the day! We used outside companies for an ice cream parlour we created in the beautiful new marquee and a photo booth in the bar both of which went off without a hitch! In regard to the catering at Kersey Mill we could not have asked for better! Everyone commented on have fantastic the food was and the service was brilliant! My little sister had unfortunately broken her jaw prior to the wedding and knowing this Jamie was happy to change the food for her and on the day even gave her the choice of what she wanted depending on what she could manage! This really meant a lot to us! especially when the bustle on my dress broke and a very friendly lady behind the bar managed to use her own pins she had at hand to fix it for me! We also asked for a doggy bag from the evening buffet as the food all looked fantastic but we had no time to enjoy it and they did this for us happily! Our wedding package included Disco King DJ who was brilliant and played all of our music choices! The lighting that went with this set a really nice atmosphere and our guest had a great time. It was also commented on how seamless it was that the DJ was able to set up behind closed doors that were then moved so the guests did not see any of the preparation! The Venue helped us to create our perfect day and we cannot thank them enough!”

2013 Testimonials

From the initial meeting with Jill over at “The venue Kersey Mill” we had no doubt in our minds that this was the venue for us. Not only is it well placed in an idyllic and warm setting, but Jill’s manner was so welcoming. She managed to make us feel at total ease with the process and was totally relaxed about all the questions and issues we brought up offering a genuine feeling of gratitude for choosing their venue. In all honesty it was this friendly and welcoming approach that made us book Kersey Mill as we had previously visited a number of venues only to find that the reception of the events managers were nowhere near as personable.  From that point on the service we received was first class. We were able to book appointments to see Jill to get ideas for dressing the venue and nothing was too much trouble. The whole process was dealt with by the team at Kersey Mill and this ensured that we did not have many stresses to deal with. We opted for a package deal with the venue, which I would absolutely recommend. This let us know straight from the start how much we were going to pay and what this included so we could budget accordingly. The communication between us and the venue was superb in the sense that they articulated everything that was going on their end, ensuring that we were kept up to date with the process and the booking of appointments for food testing, events planning etc.   We were handed to Jamie from JLS catering who is the in house caterer for Kersey Mill. I can honestly say that the food that his company offered for our day within the budget that we had to spend was exceptional. Every guest that I spoke to commented on how fantastic the food not only tasted but looked. We really could not have asked for a better service in this department.  The staff were professional and accommodating to our needs and the food really was the best I have had at any wedding.  Our events manager  Becky then liaised with us constantly, keeping us well informed and up to date.  We had a very relaxed and welcoming events planning session where she really couldn’t have gone more out of her way to make us feel appreciated and reassured us that everything would run smoothly (even at times when I was looking like I could turn into bridezilla). Nothing was too much trouble, attention to detail was paramount and every request that we made was adhered to. We were especially pleased and impressed with the very relaxed and non-stressful way in which we were allowed to set up for and clear the venue which took a massive pressure away from us.   The actual day was perfect. From start to finish every moment went according to plan and Jill, John and Becky were fabulous in their successful running of the day. It was so nice to have people running your wedding day that you not only trusted but whom you had actually come to know and become fond of. The bar staff that were provided were friendly and very professional and we really could not have asked for more.  We can’t thank the team at Kersey Mill enough for all the help and personable service that we received. They ensured that this really was the most magical and special day and I would not hesitate to recommend not only the venue but the team. Such a wonderful and memorable day that we will not ever forget. Thank you so much.”

Jennie Watson – Engagement Party Date: 16.11.2013

“We had a big family party at Kersey Mill in September to celebrate my and my husband’s 30th birthday and my Dads 60th birthday. We had over 100 guests, hot food and a live band…. so it was a big ‘do’ and The Venue at Kersey Mill made it the fantastic event that it was. Firstly the venue is stunning. It has been beautifully refurbished and is spacious, stylish and very versatile with plenty of room for eating, dancing and drinking. So many of my guests complimented the beautiful building which is packed with ‘character’ features. The catering was completely stress free thanks to Jamie Lee Smith, the venue’s own catering provider. When I met him to go through the menu he just instantly understood what I wanted and reassured me completely – if only I’d known about him for my wedding! He made a variety of beautiful hot dishes and I was able to leave everything completely up to him without a single worry.  All the food was homemade and served by his friendly staff, all for a very reasonable price. But the best thing about is venue is the owner-managers John and Jill Kerry. They were so wonderfully helpful and accommodating from start to finish. I got the impression that they really cared about my party and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. They went over and above in helping me organise and run the event and I really couldn’t have done it without them. They were always contactable, always at the venue when I needed access, giving me helpful input and advice about every detail. They were both at the event all night into the early hours of the morning making sure everything ran smoothly. They did such a brilliant job with great humour,  professionalism and subtlety. The party was a great success and that is testament to their experience, organisational skills and the extra touch they gave everything. I could have had my party at lots of other venues: hotels, golf clubs, country houses  etc. but none would have provided the bespoke, personal service I received from The Venue at Kersey Mill. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this beautiful venue for an elegant, unique party or wedding.”
Naomi Allan – 30th Birthday Party: September 2013

 “My husband and I were at your venue on Saturday. We would like to say what a wonderful venue it was. The grounds were beautiful even though we didn’t get to see a lot due to the down pour of rain. We felt there was a lovely warm and friendly atmosphere and ALL the staff were very lovely. The food was outstanding! We would just like to congratulate you on doing such a brilliant job. We will most certainly recommend your venue to anyone who would like to get married in Suffolk. And will certainly keep you in mind when our daughter gets around to getting married. Thank you all for making us feel so welcome.”
