The Athenaeum, in the heart of the market town of Bury St Edmunds makes a fantastic and special venue for a wedding. It is a wonderful historic Grade I listed building complete with a resplendent Georgian ballroom boasting incredible chandeliers. It has recently undergone refurbishment and is ideal for a Suffolk wedding to remember.
So far as wedding photography is concerned, what makes it special is that as well as the splendid interior that The Athenaeum provides, it is also in close proximity to the stunning Abbey Gardens. Literally a stone’s throw from the Athenaeum entrance is the fabulous Abbey Gate, which dates back to the 14th century, and the immaculately presented Abbey Garden beyond. This makes a wonderful setting for a wedding photography walkabout.
