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!

Thank you a thousand times over!
6 weeks ago we had the most amazing wedding day at Applewood Hall. It was stress free due to all of Kiera’s amazing work. She is super organised which made the lead up to our wedding so much easier. The gardens are so beautiful, we made the venue look exactly how we had envisioned it to look. Food was 10/10 & once drinks got flowing we made the most of the dance floor for sure. Our day was so perfect, we wish we could do it all over again. Thank you a thousand times over!

The best day of our lives!
We had our wedding a month ago today after planning for 3 long years (should have been 2 - COVID!). Kiera and her team were amazing from start to finish and always at the end of the phone or email as and when I needed no matter how minor the questions were. Everything on the day went so smoothly and again that's a huge thank you to Kiera and her team who had set a timeline for each thing from arrival to meal and toasts to first dance. I cannot fault a single thing and we truly had the best day of our lives. If you're looking for a venue with a beautiful setting and amazing management and staff, Applewood Hall is your venue!

You really can make it ‘your’ day
We got married here on the 28th May this year, and it really was a magical day. Throughout the period of our engagement, Kiera was very supportive and helped us through the entirety of the planning process and suggested numerous ideas to help guide us to planning our perfect day. We had researched numerous places before hand and loved the fact that you really can make it ‘your’ day without any judgement or being told you ‘should’ have this and that. Thank you again Kiera and team - special mention to Dawn - we had many of the guests giving really positive comments about the food too!

If we could do it all again, we would!
My (now) husband and myself fell in love with Applewood Hall when we first saw it 3 years ago. After viewing several venues, it was lovely to walk into a place and feel that ‘this is the one’. The hall is decorated in a marquee style with a large bar and good-sized dance floor. We also decided to book the glamping pods and cabins, which are just a stones-throw away from the hall, for family and friends. Our wedding was at 3pm and the morning was spent relaxing as a family and getting ready for the big moment. The staff were friendly and professional throughout the day which just contributed to everyone saying what a fantastic day it was. If we could do it all again, we would! Thank you to Chloe and Kiera for our wonderful day!

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!
