You'll be spoilt for choice for where to wed at this jewel in the region's crown. Perfectly situated on the north Norfolk coast, where stunning coastal landscape meets one of England's finest estates, it provides a breathtaking backdrop for weddings. Surrounded by parkland with a vast lake, there's no end of spectacular settings for those all-important photos.
The hall itself is an elegant 18th-century Palladian house. Step inside and be prepared for plenty of stop-stare moments from the spectacular Marble Hall with its dome ceiling, perfect for a grand ceremony, to the magnificent state rooms full of original furniture, tapestries, paintings and ancient statues.
The park provides plenty of space for a marquee reception with the magnificent hall in the background, or for less lavish affairs the seclusion of the tranquil, six-acre walled garden provides a romantic spot to celebrate post-vows. With a host of different licensed rooms and spaces to choose from, the estate can cater for everything from a wedding breakfast in a marquee for 250 or more guests to an evening reception for as many as 400 people.
For your very own personalised wedding space, the Lady Elizabeth Wing next to the hall is set within its own private courtyard. A dedicated and exclusive events venue, it provides a versatile, contemporary setting for weddings large or small. With arched windows flooding the Courtyard Room with light, it can cater for ceremonies with up to 300 guests, drinks and canapes can be served in the courtyard, followed by a three-course wedding breakfast inside and come the evening, it can be transformed into the perfect party space.
We love ... the Temple tucked away in the park's secluded woodland; a magical place for an intimate wedding.
