February/March 2023

I feel really lucky to have been able to work on Your East Anglian Wedding for the last two issues, it’s been a pleasure. After the legend that was Sarah Reeve, who had been on the title for many a year and moved on to pastures new in October 2022, there was only one option for me: I wanted to look after the readers, advertisers and wedding industry friends until I knew you would be in safe hands. Step up, the lovely Melissa Cullen. She’s taking a leap from editing Your Surrey Wedding, and moving up north oh very slightly, to take the helm of Your East Anglian Wedding. There’s only one thing I needed to say to her, ‘You’re going to love it!’. For a nature lover like me you’re blessed with the coast and countryside, with a town or two thrown in for some metropolitan vibes. The love of nature and sustainability has shone through in all the real weddings and features I’ve worked on in this short time. The venues are certainly to die for, from grand historic mansions to rustic barns and boutique hotels, there’s something for everyone and I’m going to miss learning more about the region.

This issue, check out where to wed in North Norfolk on page 19, and if it’s a venue with history you’re looking for take a look at page 29. We love to champion local businesses here at Your East Anglian Wedding, and on page 67 to 71 we meet a handful of professionals in the local area. For 2023, there’s a whole host of wedding trends to be inspired by which we cover over on page 63 and finally, for true inspiration, read our local couples’ stories in four real wedding features this issue from page 35 to 56.

All the best, take care.

Curds Hall Barn

Dating from the 17th century, Curds Hall Barn is set within 12 acres of parkland and arable fields, including mature woodland, a pond, and a lawn which is surrounded by uninterrupted views of the Norfolk countryside.

Curds Hall Barn is made up of two conjoined rooms: The Main Barn is the venue’s showpiece. Light and airy, it has whitewashed walls showcasing unique chequered brick and flintwork, high vaulted ceilings with original beams and contemporary lighting. The Woodshed provides a contrasting space with its darker wood cladding and atmospheric lighting – the perfect blank canvas for a romantic and intimate wedding breakfast. Festoon lighting and a firepit outside the main entrance create a welcoming atmosphere into the evening and make a great space for food trucks to pull up.

Ceremonies for up to 120 loved ones can take place in the following: The Main Barn, as previously described is a bright room with huge, glazed doors and underfloor heating. The Woodshed, a contrasting setting to the Main Barn, has dark wood-clad walls, upright beams mark a natural aisle down the centre of the room and can be dressed with swags of fabric or fairylights for a magical feel.

For al fresco nuptials, couples can tie the knot under the Old Oak Tree, positioned on the edge of the woodland, or outside on the lawn to the rear of the barn with stunning uninterrupted views of the Norfolk countryside. It has an adjoining open-fronted Cartshed with beautiful original brickwork and upright beams which can be decorated.

Post-vows, wedding breakfasts and receptions can take place for up to 120 loved ones in both The Woodshed and Main Barn. The Woodshed has long rustic dining tables and limewashed Chivari chairs and can host an evening reception for up to 200 guests with ample space for a band and dancefloor. Long rustic dining tables can fill the length of The Main Barn for banquet-style dining and can take tall floral arrangements due to the high vaulted ceilings. Alternatively, this space is used for an evening reception for up to 200 guests with a bar in the same room as the dancefloor and access to the loft area – the perfect space for a snug breakout area.

When tying the knot here, couples have access to a dedicated wedding coordinator and, although Curds Hall Barn is a dry hire venue, it can provide many of the services needed such as heating, lighting, tables and chairs, lavatories, a PA system and a staffed bar, leaving couples to focus on the elements that they want to enjoy putting together.
