Full Description
Situated in the quaint village of Banham, one of Norfolk’s best-kept secrets Applewood Hall offers an undeniably unique wedding venue for your special day. Once the grounds of the Grove Farm orchard, Applewood Hall served as the store during the harvest season. Now an elegantly decorated entertaining space, it offers a licensed bar, dance floor, stage and seating for up to 200 guests. Applewood Hall is a harmonious combination of rustic charm and contemporary style. Accommodation is available onsite with six luxury-styled glamping pods providing the perfect retreat after a long night on the dancefloor. Spacious caravan and camping pitches with electric hook-up are also offered allowing you and your guests to retire to your very own patch of the countryside. And if that wasn’t enough, Applewood Hall is located next to Banham Zoo, Norfolk's award-winning family attraction, so if you fancied something a little bit different whether it’s a giraffe feeding experience, a ceremony within the zoo grounds or photos with some of the stunning animals – anything is possible!

Best day of our lives!!
It was incredible, we loved every second. Thank you so much Kiera for all your support from our first visit 14/04/2019 to our wedding day 16/07/2021. We couldn’t have asked for a better Wedding Planner/ Team or Venue. Always kept us calm and in full contact throughout. Super happy Mr and Mrs Cross x

The perfect place to marry my best friend
Applewood Hall was the perfect place to marry my best friend! Kiera, Dawn, and the Applewood Hall team helped make the day amazing and I cannot recommend them enough!! Although the Covid restrictions did limit the day slightly, everyone helped make it work with no issues. We were also able to have the whole ceremony outside to enjoy with our family, friends, and our 2 dogs. I would also stay at Applewood Countryside Park again; the posh pod we stayed in the night of the wedding was perfect for us. Thank you again to all!

The most stunning place to get married at!
Applewood Hall is the most stunning place to get married at! Kiera and her team made our special day simply amazing and we couldn't have asked for anything better. Kiera kept in close contact with us throughout and helped us organise everything down to a tea. We cannot thank you all enough!

We can't recommend Applewood Hall highly enough!
My wife and I stuck to our guns and battled some very tough circumstances and decisions! Kiera Goymour the wedding planner and owner of Applewood Hall took so much pressure off of myself and Amy. Yes, we had a reduced numbers wedding but it was as special as a full sized wedding would have been. If anyone is looking for a venue where the wedding planner makes the whole journey enjoyable, I literally can't recommend Applewood Hall highly enough.

We couldn’t recommend Applewood more if we tried
Myself and my partner got married on the 10th October, and Kiera and the venue couldn’t have been better!! Kiera kept us up to date throughout it all, let me email and ring her with all my stupid questions and was so thoughtful throughout everything! We got married in the Oak Rooms which is the smaller room, due to having a COVID ‘micro’ wedding but it still couldn’t have been more amazing. The room is decorated really lovely, and has the most beautiful wooden beams which look so magical. It was all run so smoothly too - I knew regardless of how nervous I was on the day, Kiera would have it all in hand. The area around Applewood and the Oak Rooms is absolutely gorgeous, which was just perfect for the photos we wanted. We couldn’t recommend Applewood more if we tried. Thank you for making our micro-magic happen ♥️

Thank you for such a wonderful day!
Thank you for such a wonderful day yesterday. It wouldn't have been possible without you and your hard work. We really appreciate all the effort you've gone to over the past few months with your reassuring words, calming ways and hopefulness. Our day may not have been what we planned but the ceremony and the short time afterwards was very lovely, very informal and so very relaxed.

FAQ

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

It's YOUR day, so don't be afraid to be a bit selfish when it comes to things like your menu choices, drink selection and seating plans. Prefer to have canapés during your drinks reception rather than a starter, why not! If you want a big, gooey chocolate dessert, go for it! If you'd prefer to have a classic G&T rather than bubbles for the toast, do it! If you want the seating to be more informal with no seating plan, be bold! These small things will help your day feel special and unique to you.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We had a lovely couple this year that had the brilliant idea of a personalised festival band to tie the napkin on each place setting, which they encouraged everyone to wear on their wrist once they'd sat down. It made everyone feel apart of their day and really worked with their outdoorsy, festival-chic vibe.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Contemporary, rustic charm, friendly, flexible, glamping!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Our new wedding garden! This beautifully landscaped space features a custom-built gazebo, contemporary outdoor furniture, lots of lush greenery and cottage garden flowers, grasses and herbs inspired by the British countryside. The perfect backdrop for wedding photos and alfresco arrival drinks in the sunshine!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Applewood Hall is located right next to Banham Zoo, so if you fancied something a little bit different whether it’s a giraffe feeding experience, a ceremony within the zoo grounds or photos with some of the stunning animals – anything is possible!
