Norfolk Wedding Venues

Top 11 Norfolk Wedding Venues

We fell in love with Norfolk so hard we moved here. So it goes without saying it's our favourite place to photograph weddings. From small intimate ceremonies, to dazzling extravaganzas, Norfolk wedding venues can cater to all of your nuptial needs.

With a breath-taking coastline, magical forests, charming towns and villages, and the buzzing city of Norwich at its heart, Norfolk offers it all when it comes to the wedding venue of your dreams. We aren't the only ones that think so either, with new wedding venues popping up all the time to capture the hearts of those looking to get married in this beautiful county.

It's hard to choose favourites and our list can change all the time, but for now here are the top 11 wedding venues in Norfolk we can't stop thinking about. Hopefully they'll help your current wedding planning.

The Boathouse, Martham, Norfolk

The Norfolk coast gets its fair share of attention, but there's another body of water the area is known for that shouldn't be ignored when hunting for your dream wedding venue: the Broads. One of the best wedding venues that celebrates this area is The Boathouse in Martham. A contemporary wedding venue, it directly overlooks Ormesby Broad making it an incredibly tranquil spot to say 'I do'. There's numerous terraces for guests to relax on and when the weather lets you, you can even get married outside in the beautiful wedding arbour.

Why We Love It

Aside from the peaceful and unique setting? If that's not enough to pique your interest, you can even arrive at your wedding via the water on their Edwardian-style launch, Gentleman Jim. Just think of the photos!

Hockwold Hall, Thetford, Norfolk

Traditional hall or stately home wedding venues can be an excellent choice for larger wedding parties as they usually offer the space needed to accommodate big guestlists. However that doesn't mean they're out of the question for smaller gatherings. Hockwold Hall offers the best of both worlds with intimate rooms for smaller ceremonies and larger spaces for a bigger wedding reception.

You get full exclusivity of the venue no matter your party size and there's numerous dining rooms, ceremony rooms and even games rooms to choose from. There's also nine bedrooms at Hockwold Hall so you and your closest guests can feel right at home for your wedding day and night.

Why We Love It

If you're looking for a historic wedding venue, you've found it. Hockwold Hall dates all the way back to the 1086 Doomsday book and has had a rich and varied history over the years. It has kept many of its traditional characteristics, so you can step back in time as you walk down the aisle. We also love the location which is on the edge of Thetford Forest, another local area of natural beauty.

Titchwell Manor Hotel, Burnham Market, Norfolk

A coastal house hotel looking over the breath-taking North Norfolk coastline, Titchwell Manor is one of the best wedding venues to capture the area's seaside charm. Originally a Victorian farmhouse, it's been lovingly restored to now include luxurious bedrooms, hot tub suites, and even shepherd's huts. It also has multiple spaces to host your wedding vows, wedding breakfast, and of course, the evening reception too.

A wonderfully unique wedding venue, Titchwell Manor prides themselves in creating entirely bespoke weddings for their couples. They even have award-winning chefs on hand at their 3 AA Rosettes restaurant to curate the ultimate wedding breakfast.

Why We Love It

Everything about this venue oozes a laidback yet elegant style we can't get enough off. Even the landscape surrounding the old farmhouse is at its best at all times. From soft dunes and marshes to windswept beaches and farmland, you're sure to love this picturesque location.

The Keeper and the Dell, Ringland, Norfolk

One of the top outside wedding venues in Norfolk, The Keeper and the Dell is truly unique. A fully licensed outdoor wedding spot, it's nestled below the trees of an ancient woodland estate with private grounds begging to be explored. With many outdoor spaces to say your vows and party the night away, there are also indoor areas like the 18th century barn, devotion den, and even a saloon.

Ideal for romantic, vintage weddings, The Keeper and the Dell is the rustic setting of your dreams if that's the direction your wedding planning has been heading in. Bookings include exclusive use over the weekend too which is rare, so you can take your time with the setup and clear out, and extend your celebrations too.

Why We Love It

We love an astoundingly unique location and this venue has it in spades. Blissfully boho, we can already feel the relaxed vibes of your wedding photographs if you get married at The Keeper and the Dell - and we're here for it.

Voewood, Holt, Norfolk

Another North Norfolk gem, Voewood is a country estate close to the popular town of Holt. Quintessentially quirky, Voewood is an estate wedding venue with a difference. At its heart is a striking Arts and Crafts house, setting itself apart from other country estates in the area. Carefully restored with an eclectic mix of antiques, retro design and fun art, it's a picture-perfect backdrop for quirky weddings.

Why We Love It

Voewood really put the emphasis on the party with their wedding offerings. They've created a bar structure that fits into the Mosaic room of the house which can be used in multiple ways, and they have even taken the revelry one step further by adding Pink Lloyd's - a night club/bar in the cellar to really get the party started.

The Reading Room, Calthorpe, Norfolk

With a medieval church inspired backdrop, The Reading Room is an intimate wedding venue set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens. Including dramatic stone-leaded windows and glowing chandeliers, the venue's single room space can be converted with ease throughout the day, making it a wonderfully relaxed choice.

Why We Love It

Stunningly simple, The Reading Room whilst filled with rustic charm is also a blank canvas for you to put your own stamp on. We love showcasing the uniqueness of the couples we photograph, so venues that you can really make your own hold a special place in our hearts.

Oxnead Hall, Reepham, Norfolk

Set in an idyllic rural estate, Oxnead Hall includes a Tudor Hall, great barn, two estate cottages, an orangery, and 15 acres of landscaped gardens - no wonder it's award-winning. If you're looking for a quintessential English country wedding venue, you couldn't go wrong with Oxnead Hall and there's also room for up to 32 guests to stay, so no one in the wedding party has to rush home.

Why We Love It

Whilst we have a soft spot for quirky and unique venues, we love the more traditional ones too. They're traditional for a reason, right? And Oxnead Hall has captured that Norfolk countryside wedding feel that will always be at the top of many couple's wedding dreams.

The Woodyard at Worstead Hall, Norwich

Set within another traditional estate but with a twist, The Woodyard at Worstead Hall is a beautifully restored Georgian thatched barn and former sawmill. But the unique wedding venue doesn't stop there. On one side is the classic walled garden, and on the other is the lake complete with boathouse and footbridge which leads to a secluded island. There's also room for up to 31 guests to stay and this is another venue you will have exclusive use of for three days during your wedding.

Why We Love It

There's something about that little island that really calls to us and you can even host your ceremony there with a brand new summer house to frame you as you say 'I do'. You can also make an entrance to remember by rowing (or more likely being rowed) over on the You and I, the venue's 1920s rowing boat.

Pentney Abbey, Norfolk

A former monastery, Pentney Abbey is nestled in the charming Norfolk countryside. Along with the medieval gatehouse which can be used to host the ceremony, not to mention a striking backdrop for photographs, there is also the main barn for the wedding breakfast and reception and a rose garden for you and your wedding guests to enjoy throughout your day.

Why We Love It

Both the rose garden and gatehouse would make striking locations for weddings and we love the step back in time feel this venue gives off at every turn. The addition of super sleek on-site accommodation however makes Pentney Abbey the perfect mix of old and new, showing that historic venues never need to be lacking in style.

Cinema City, Norwich, Norfolk

We've shown you so many wedding venues the beautiful Norfolk countryside has to offer, but what about the county's urban areas? The historic city of Norwich is an equally chic place to hold the wedding of your dreams and one of our favourite venues is Cinema City. As the name suggests it's a state-of-the-art cinema, bar, and restaurant housed in magnificently restored medieval buildings, and now you can have your wedding there.

Why We Love It

One of the most unusual venues on our list, Cinema City is the perfect space to showcase your individuality as a couple. It's a fun blend of modern city style and retro glamour.

Chaucer Barn, Holk, Norfolk

There are many rustic barn wedding venues in Norfolk but Chaucer Barn is one of our favourites. Set in 20 acres of landscaped gardens, the barn itself is a private retreat for up to 18 people. It can cater to small, intimate ceremonies using just the barn or with the help of marquees and surrounding woodland, it can also host much larger gatherings.

Why We Love It

With it's wisteria lined walls and ecletic interiors, Chaucer Barn is as much a holiday retreat as it is a wedding venue, which we think will make you feel perfectly at home on your wedding day. It's equal parts stylish and relaxed making it ideal for laidback couples.

This is by no means a comprehensive list of all the out-of-this-world Norfolk wedding venues but a few of those that have caught our eyes recently. Did you see any you liked?
