On Saturday 29th August 2020, Hautbois Hall, in Little Hautbois, Norwich, opened its new Ceremony Barn. The building project initially scheduled to open in June 2020 was postponed due to Covid-19.

With the majority of 2020 weddings at Hautbois Hall postponed due to the pandemic, it was a double celebration as they hosted their first wedding of the year too. 


After two disappointing postponements due to government restrictions, Anna-Grace and Joseph Easton had tears of joy when they saw the new Ceremony Barn and that they were finally getting married.  

Keeping to the strict numbers of 30 guests, the occasion was a wonderfully intimate day.

The groom, Joseph said: “We had such a great day. Thanks to Cheryl Beeney at Hautbois Hall she made us feel at ease on the lead up to the day and even when the weather wasn’t great, she made sure everything ran smoothly.  Even with the disappointment of the postponements, she made them feel like a small problem rather than a big one. We honestly had the best day of our lives and loved every minute.”


Cheryl Beeney, Wedding Planner at Hautbois Hall (Cheryl Beeney Events) said: “After working in the wedding industry for 20 years, I wanted to offer a venue which wasn’t a copy and paste event. With each postponement we’ve been flexible to accommodate couples dreams”.   

Hautbois Hall opened as a wedding venue in August 2013 and have grown each year. With the recent expansion investment from the owners Sally Blandford and Paul Coby, Hautbois Hall can accommodate more intimate weddings especially for the winter months when an outside ceremony is ruled out.
