Bressingham Hall and Gardens has refurbished its 18th century High Barn into a licensed building for weddings. It can also be used to host conferences and charity fundraisers.

Additionally the Grade II listed Hall – where Adrian Bloom, chairman of Blooms Nurseries, and his sister Bridget Bloom grew up - has been opened up for holidays and short breaks.

Mr Bloom said the changes were made to secure the long-term future of the gardens.

'Looking at the overall family business it was not going to be sustainable over the long run,' he said. 'We needed to have it developed. We decided this would be the best idea. It is a wonderful feeling for all of us. It is for the future of the family and the family business.'

In addition to the barn, which can hold the wedding ceremony, meal and entertainment, there is a large marquee and courtyards.

The Georgian manor sleeps up to 18 guests and has seven bedrooms. There are private gardens, patios, a conservatory, dinning room and a large kitchen.

The bedrooms are named after flowers which were introduced to the gardens by the founder Alan Bloom or his son Adrian.

Refurbishments made to the manor were overseen by Ms Bloom who has said she is pleased the house is being used for family reunions, wedding and hen parties and societies.

'I have been delighted with it,' she said. 'For the past 50 years it has been going downhill and it looked sad. This was needed to bring it back to life. It is exciting. And it is nice to share it with other people.'

So far four weddings have been booked for the barn and the manor is fully booked every weekend leading up to September.
