Spectacular venues at Bride: The Wedding Show at Norfolk Showground 2018
12 Dec 2017
Bride: The Wedding Show returns to Norfolk Showground from February 17-18 and with it, brings a whole host of stunning wedding venues. Take a closer look...
The Granary Estates, stand number: D6
The Granary Estates consists of two venues located on the Suffolk/Cambridgeshire border; The Granary Barns and The Polo Club Dullingham. With its classic flint walls and original timber beams throughout, the 18th century Granary Barn is the perfect setting for a relaxed and intimate wedding day. The Polo club in Dullingham offers space, flexibility and versatility for those looking for a blank canvas.
Applewood Hall, stand number: B75
Located next to Banham Zoo, Applewood Hall offers a harmonious combination of rustic charm and contemporary style. Applewood Hall is an elegantly decorated, marquee-lined wedding venue with two licensed ceremony rooms. Up to 200 people can be seated and the venue provides a licensed bar, dancefloor and stage all in the same space. The new beautifully landscaped wedding garden features a custom-built gazebo and there is some quirky on-site accommodation in the form of six luxury-styled Glamping Pods.
Southwood Hall, Stand number: C51
A stunning venue for your wedding with your own dedicated co-ordinator who will be with you throughout your planning journey as well as on your wedding day. Southwood Hall can host your ceremony inside the stunning Grade II listed thatched Coronation Barn, outside under the Garden Rotunda or as part of a duo ceremony in the private Secret Garden or anywhere else in the grounds. Your reception can be tailored to suit your own personalities with numerous catering options from the in-house chefs. There is also a wonderful entertainment space alongside luxurious accommodation for you and up to 20 visiting guests.
Chaucer Barn, Stand number: B20
Glen Lodge is a brand new wedding venue for 2019 that offers flexibility, tailored packages and beautiful views. Enjoy a virtual tour of the new building at the show, with the chance to win a free room hire for 2019.
Norwich Cathedral, Stand number: C42
Norwich Cathedral probably needs little introduction, though the fact that couples are able to hold their wedding reception there often surprises people. It’s fair to say that the Cathedral is unlike any other venue. The contemporary facilities in the Hostry and Refectory offer a wonderful contrast to the antiquity of the 900-year-old Cathedral building and its walls. And then there’s the 44 acres of romantic gardens and peaceful cloisters for your wedding pictures. If you’re seeking a venue that’s unique, Norwich Cathedral could be just what you’re looking for.

Thursford Garden Pavilion, Stand number: D20
Enchanting and picturesque, the stunning Thursford Garden Pavilion is one of Norfolk’s most beautiful wedding venues. Guests can enjoy access to the world famous museum which houses a fairground carousel ride, gondola ride and mechanical organs. These can all be enjoyed as part of the wedding reception.
When it comes to dressing your venue, Louise Flynn, of Lou Lou Loves (stand C73) advises: "If you are lucky enough to have an outside ceremony area at your venue make the most this and hire a stunning wedding arch. This will be beautiful to take your vows in front of but it can be used later to showcase your wedding cake or to use as a photography backdrop."

Louise continues: "Be bold and combine a mix of vintage and contemporary styling elements in to your wedding décor. This table scape uses vintage crockery and candle sticks from Lou Lou Loves alongside stunning contemporary stationery by Frog and Pencil."
