Milsom Hotels has so much to offer future brides and their families from a small intimate wedding at Maison Talbooth to a larger celebration in the marquee at Le Talbooth or a unique wedding at The Pier … and then there’s Talbooth Catering which is more a case of have Chefs, will travel. It could be to a marquee beside the reservoir in Ardleigh (for the farmer’s daughter) to Braxted Park or Spains Hall (where we are preferred caterers) or to Trinity Park on the Suffolk Showground.

Putting together a brochure wasn’t easy we have so much to say, it was more a question of where to start. The new wedding website will have all the details available on an easy to navigate site.

We’ll also have details of all the suppliers that we trust and enjoy working with, which will hopefully make life a little easier when you’re planning your special day.

So, as we mentioned at the beginning – watch this space!
