Catering for wedding ceremonies and civil partnerships, Holkham Hall features four magnificent state rooms in which to wed, including the Saloon, Marble Hall, Statue Gallery and North Dining Room. Outdoor ceremonies can enjoy the secluded and intimate setting of the Temple, tucked away in the surrounding parkland.
To the north-west, and a short distance from Holkham Hall, lies the Church of St Withburga. The church presents glorious views over Holkham Park and its lake and is available for ceremonies involving those with a residential or family connection.
A new events venue, The Lady Elizabeth Wing, is the perfect place to conduct post-ceremony celebrations, providing a contemporary space which can hold up to 250 dinner guests and 400 guests for a drinks party, as well as a smaller, reception area for parties of up to 60 people.
Spring and summer weddings can make use of the beautiful and tranquil 18th century walled garden where there is a dedicated events space, or consider the panoramic setting of the rolling parkland, with Holkham Hall as a backdrop, both of which can deliver ample outdoor space for a marquee reception.
