The best Norfolk wedding venues

Okay, *deep breathe*, we’ve been putting together a list of all of the Norfolk wedding venues. Some we’ve worked at and love, others we’ve never been to but we’re just itching to go. We’ve put them into categories; Norwich, rustic, Norfolk Broads, coastal, barns and country homes and halls. If you’re planning a norfolk wedding and you’ve got a particular vibe in mind, click the buttons below to jump to each section. We’ll continue to update this blog over time.

The Assembly House

A historic Georgian house in the heart of Norwich, this little gem has all you need for a small to medium sized wedding with a very funky modern approach. 1100 positive Google reviews say it all. Actually, the fact we have our Xmas day dinner here probably say the most…exquisite!

Norwich Castle Registry Office

A 900 year old castle built by the Normans. We haven’t met anyone called Norman there but this place is very ‘Norwich’ and a good start point to get the legal stuff done before going to your reception venue. Some cool street/wedding photo opportunities too if you fancy a wander through the market on the way out!

The Georgian Townhouse.

A hidden city oasis, full of character and perfect for small to medium weddings. If you’re looking for a cosy feel with epic surroundings and food that’s off the hook, this is a must view. While the Townhouse itself has a small garden to the rear there is also Chapelfield gardens close by for photos and our favourite nearby is The Plantation Garden which is like a little chunk of Italy in the city.

The Flint Room

A beautiful medieval (deconsecrated) Church with all the charm and architecture but with modern non-religious decor. Lesley and Trish who run this cute and funky venue can accommodate all kinds of wedding and are two of the coolest and nicest folk you’ll ever meet. Quirky fun and very special.

Norwich arts centre.

The cool kids option for a reception in the heart of the city, a grade 1 listed beautiful flint structure dating back to the 14th century. Top marks for stage, dance floor and outdoor space!

St Giles hotel.

Georgian classy chic and chandeliers in the heart of the city. A solid choice for an all-in-one solution.

The Keeper and the Dell.

Lots of traditional Norfolk goodness but with an outdoor festival/Boho thang going on. Straw bales and firepit included for the wedding that all your friends talk about for years to come. Awesome.

Happy Valley

If glamping is your thing (actually there’s a hot tub, so really very glam indeed) then Happy valley could be perfect, you can hire the place for a whole weekend and enjoy a woodland or island ceremony outdoors too! One of our favourites.

Hockering House.

So much going on at Hockering house, from stately home setting through to woodland and festival arrangements and accommodation onsite. Excellent all rounder.

Wellington Wood.

The perfect venue if you want to make a weekend of it with all your family and friends. Wellington Wood has a huge tipi, a glamping area, a woodland clearing for your outdoor ceremony and is dog friendly. Super cute and outdoorsy Norfolk wedding venue.

Pentney Abbey

Pentney has some madly old (1380!)and beautiful architecture blended with purpose built modern wedding venue style so the day is going to look great whatever the weather. All the good things in a compact site.

The firepit camp.

Camping, a warehouse and a retro bus all at one venue. All the good stuff you’ll need for a festival style wedding is here, including food options (did somebody say pizza?).

Hockwold Hall

2023 Winners for ‘Best Norfolk wedding venue’ and well deserved too. Hockwold hall is a beautiful and impressive building set in 50 acres of private grounds but has probably the most cosy and homely vibe of any large venue we know.

Fishley Hall

Fishley Hall has all the things. An old grain barn, Fishley hall itself for accommodation , a meadow (perfect for tipis,marquees and a festival vibe), mega cute church and of course, the river Bure running through it’s 350 acres of countryside. Pretty much all the things you could wish for for a top banana wedding weekend! One of our favourite Norfolk wedding venues.

The Boathouse

A beautiful venue on Ormesby Broad with decking and a jetty adjoining the water, your guests will really feel like they’re on a country retreat with drinks and canapes being served out on the deck. You can turn up in a boat and your guests can do a little rowing too! We love the waterside stuff and the venue has that going on.

Hautbois Hall

Hautbois has the complete Norfolk Country Hall wedding thing nailed down. Accommodation and space to make a weekend event for all your family and friends tucked away in the River Bure valley. 

The Norfolk Mead

Firstly, these peeps do an awesome BBQ! Actually, all the food is great here and the venue has modern facilities combined with a country house feel. Plenty of space for all your guests and close to the water meadows for some photos too.

The Hoste

Burnham Market’s best wedding venue looks like a classic coastal pub but cleverly includes an all in one Norfolk wedding venue with everything you’ll need for the day. New kids on the block and rocking it!

Waxham Barn

We almost want to keep this one a secret, it’s within walking distance of our favourite beach and has all the potential for the best Summer wedding ever. We’ll say no more, but if you book here, give us a shout.

Cley Windmill

If the Norfolk coastal thing is in your blood, you’ll already have seen the windmill. Cute as a button. This venue has a maximum guest limit of 28, perfect for tiny or apocalypse weddings. (That last sentence will make sense only through 2020, hopefully)

Dairy barns.

We love a barn door, an old brick wall, fields and the beach close by. This venue is proper Norfolk. Lots of canopy area if the weather turns iffy and the sunsets are to die for.

Chaucer barn.

We have so many nice things to say about Chaucer barn, it’s a superb Norfolk wedding venue and a ‘have-it-your-way’ kind of place, pretty much any kind of day you imagine will fit. A must see. Click here to see the venue on our blog.

Octagon barn.

Just five miles away from Norwich and set among 25 acres of parkland, this venue gives you plenty of options. Cosy vibes for an intimate wedding but plenty of capacity for big weddings too. 

The reading room.

This is a cute little place for weddings up to 80 guests with indoor or outdoor ceremony options. Plus there’s a little Church next door too. If you’re a sucker for a beautiful English garden, this might be the barn for you. 

Manor mews.

Just an hour from Norwich but right out in the sticks Manor mews is a great barn and wins points with us for having a Google review that says the party goes on into the small hours (a complaint from someone NOT at the party!)

Hales Hall

Country house and a cracking barn, this one’s for the cool kids we reckon with a relaxed but very stylish feel. It’s a bit of a favourite amongst wedding photographers, and with good reason. 

Godwick Hall

From little weddings in the Hall to huge ones in the Barn, Godwick have it all going on, accommodation in converted stable, shepherds huts or posh room in the hall itself – something for all your family and friends to relax in fine style. Do check out that barn though, it’s lush. 

Southwood Hall

‘Best countryside wedding venue’ in the wedding industry awards. Southwood has lots going on and a really upfront approach to helping couples plan their best day, you should check them out.

We figure that if Coco Chanel had bought a Norfolk wedding venue, it’d probably have been Voewood. Lots of pretty space, posh accommodation and a very classy arts and crafts feel. If you’re after the statement venue, this might be for you.

Barn Drift

A relatively new venue near Holt and looking over the North Norfolk coast. This relaxed and wonderfully remote venue is superb for an intimate vibe wedding with superb outdoor space. Pop to the beach in five minutes for photos too! Here’s a wedding we shot at barn Drift.

Oxnead hall

600 years in the making, Oxnead is a definitive country house wedding venue. Indoors or outdoors there are lots of options to shape your day. They even have an Orangery. Yes, an Orangery.

Sennowe Park

This place is mental, right up there on our wish list of venues to work at. If you’re looking to knock the day out of the park, this might be the place. Call us!
