Weddings at Milsoms Kesgrave Hall

Whilst Milsoms Kesgrave Hall has a number of options for smaller weddings and celebrations, our dedicated wedding venue provides a brilliant space for up to 300 people and can be formatted/partitioned to suit smaller gatherings.

The key selling point for The Hangar is that it provides night-time style feeling once indoors, encouraging a party atmosphere and making sure that the dancing gets going once the speeches are complete. The grounds surrounding the venue are beautifully kept and offer a variety of photography opportunities, including the cascading steps that allow you to capture all of your family and friends in a portrait photograph.

Milsom Hotels & Restaurants have been helping to create memorable weddings for a number of decades and our teams are highly efficient and experienced in making sure that you and your guests have everything you need.

This wedding venue is truly unique – with its tree-lined approach into spacious grounds, set neatly within the woodland surroundings – is the perfect Suffolk wedding venue for anybody thinking of inviting upwards of 80 guests. Why not visit and take a look around? You can always grab a bite to eat in the main hotel’s brasserie, which serves food all day from breakfast to dinner.
