Any Norfolk based couples-to-be will know that they cannot properly start to plan their wedding down to the finest detail until they have secured their perfect wedding venue. Luckily, Norfolk is home to some very stunning wedding venues, and offer a range of places to suit all tastes and budgets.
Here is a little snapshot of our favourite Norfolk Wedding Venues and what makes them such a great choice of place to hold your wedding.
Hush Venues, Postwick
Norfolk is blessed with some of the most stunning countryside and woodlands in the whole of the UK, so if you are a lover of the great outdoors, then you may want to consider holding your special day surrounded by Mother Nature in a secluded woodland setting that affords some stunning natural views.
Hush Venues are fully licensed for civil ceremonies, and have designed their setting with alfresco weddings in mind. Using a combination of specially selected natural outdoor setting set within the stunning Norfolk landscape, you can get close to nature and feel fully immersed in your environment, yet still only be a easy stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of Norwich.
Choose from converted farm cottages full of old-world charm, to glamping in green meadows close by. You need to book early though as only a handful of weddings are held here each year.
Here is another outstanding venue for those who love the idea of an outdoor wedding. The Keeper and The Dell is a venue that is small and intimate, and allows you to really do your own thing!
Tucked away in the heart of some wonderfully secluded woodlands, your wedding party will be accommodated in some quirky and unique options, with wooden sleeping huts and camping options. Although not licensed for wedding ceremonies, your wedding reception guests can make use of a rare eighteenth century Gamekeeper’s barn set within a Birch Garden, and a traditional canvas marquee set within your own wooded dell.
This is an ideal location for those of you with a bohemian or hippy vibe, and want to keep your wedding party quite small and intimate. Set within private grounds on a woodland estate, you can guarantee your celebrations will not be disturbed by random ramblers or passing hiking groups.
Be warned though, this is a VERY trendy and popular wedding venue, so does get booked up very fast. Many dates are booked up three years in advance, so book early to avoid disappointment.
Applewood Hall, Banham
Applewood Hall has a quaint history of once being an ancient apple storage barn that held the old orchards apples during harvest season that once stood on the grounds. Now fully converted into a lofty and elegantly decorated wedding hall, the venue holds a fully licensed bar and dance floor – perfect for your wedding reception. The hall can seat up to 200 guests and is a light and airy space that lends itself perfectly for use by wedding parties.
Situated in beautiful countryside in the village of Banham, Applewood Hall is everything you would expect of a Norfolk country wedding venue. It has a charming mixture of rustic and contemporary styles that provides a wonderful backdrop to any wedding.
To add an unusual quirky slant to you wedding, Applewood Hall is right next door to Banham Zoo, making a great opportunity for you to incorporate some fun feeding and photographic experiences into your big day if you so choose. A fantastic choice if you are inviting a lot of children to your wedding who will love a visit the zoo too!
