If you’re into history or looking for a Norfolk wedding venue with a certain prestige – or you just want to throw a massive posh party - consider getting married in one of Norfolk’s grand stately homes or estates.

A wedding in a stately home, house or estate works perfectly whether you’re planning a midweek intimate civil ceremony – or a huge traditional white wedding that lasts all weekend.

Beautiful period architecture set in stunning landscaped gardens is definitely a win for your Norfolk wedding photographer too, that’s even before we talk about the inside!

I love shooting weddings at stately homes in Norfolk because the furniture and art has usually been carefully chosen and curated by the owners to compliment the period of the property– so there really is lots of drama and detail – things a great documentary style wedding photographer loves – everywhere you look.

If you’re planning a wedding in and around Norfolk we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to stately homes to get married in. We really do have everything from the 15th century splenduer of venues like Blicking Hall – to the Rock N Roll cool of Voewood House.

Whichever venue you chose, stately homes for weddings in an around Norfolk are always beautifully proportioned with lofty high ceilings, beautiful fireplaces, detailed plasterwork and huge windows which any decent Norfolk wedding photographer will use to their advantage.

So inside / outside, it’s all going to look amazing, especially in your wedding photography.

But despite the impressive granduer of a stately home wedding, they’re also quite a relaxing choice when it comes to your wedding day.

This is because your Norfolk stately home wedding venue is likely to host your entire wedding ceremony and celebration and there’s going to be overnight accommodation for your wedding guests too.

Exclusive hire of your Norfolk wedding venue will allow you to live like lord or lady of the manor while throwing the ultimate wedding party.

You won’t be constrained in terms of timings – Voewood House is known as the ultimate party house for good reason.

And you can stay as long as you like too. One of my favourite weddings to shoot was a three day wedding at Hengrave Hall which included one reception, two ceremonies and three parties.

But before the party there’s the wedding ceremony consider.

Choosing to get married in a stately home in Norfolk means you could opt to hold the ceremony in the main house or outside in the landscaped gardens.

But what’s also really special about stately homes is the history.

You just can’t help but wonder who’s walked through the hallways and slept in the bedrooms before you?

By getting married in a stately home in Norfolk or Suffolk your wedding day is becoming part of that fascinating history. And by photographing your wedding in a stately home in Norfolk, your wedding photographer becomes one of the many who’ve documented it for future generations.

Some stately homes like Holkham and Blickling for example, are open to the public at certain times too, so this means that after your Norfolk stately home wedding, you can always go back for a visit with family and friends, maybe even one day take your children!

And if you really want to relive the day, take your wedding album with you too!
