Caterers Suffolk | Christchurch Mansion | Plenty of Thyme

Christchurch Mansion – Ipswich, Suffolk

Christchurch Mansion is a 16th Century Tudor brick mansion house set in the stunning grounds of Christchurch Park on the outskirts of Suffolk’s County Town, Ipswich.  It is considered to be one of Suffolk’s most treasured buildings, boasting over 500 years of history. The perfectly manufactured lawns can hold marquees for any amount of guests and is simply a magnificent wedding venue.

The Tudor Barns – Belstead, Suffolk

This stylish and romantic wedding venue features a 16th Century Tudor barn, which was expertly restored in 2004 to become the amazing venue it is today. The whole project was built using reclaimed materials from derelict buildings elsewhere on the grounds, making it one of the most sustainable examples of a wedding venue in Suffolk! Set in 7 acres of open woodland grounds, this venue boasts a permanent kitchen (which is great for us!), plus plenty of internal space for dancing, drinking and feasting.

What’s more, our team will pitch up, provide everything your guests could possibly need – cutlery, plates, condiments – and clear up as if we were never there. It really is as easy as hiring Plenty Of Thyme and knowing everything to do with catering is under control and taken care of!
