Hales Hall & The Great Barn

The world’s your oyster at this impressive venue. Whether you’re planning a lavish affair or fancy being lord and lady of the manor for a weekend-long celebration, there’s something to suit a whole range of wedding tastes and themes.

Steeped in history, the Medieval estate has been lovingly restored to offer modern-day luxury while retaining its original character and charm. Surrounded by beautifully manicured formal gardens and wild Norfolk meadows it’s a magical setting for a big day with a difference.

You can marry in The Great Barn with its vaulted thatched roof and exposed timbers joined by up to 200 seated guests for the ceremony and wedding breakfast. The largest surviving brick-built barn of its kind in the country, it can host 300 or more for the evening do. The upstairs Gallery is a cosy space; great as a chill-out area, complete with comfy sofas, fairylights and additional seating. It can also be used for intimate ceremonies or just for the legal part before or after an al fresco service on the front lawn. The grounds provide a wealth of fabulous photo opportunities with a moated area and fountain, topiary and floral avenue. For those looking to extend the celebration, the venue can host 25 or more guests across the estate. The hall itself provides a welcoming retreat and can be your very own mansion for the duration.
