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!

We had the most amazing day!
We had our wedding reception at Applewood Hall on 04.09.2021, after having to postpone our wedding from August last year. We had the most amazing day!!! We just want to take a moment and thank Kiera and her amazing team for everything they have done for us with our wedding. Kiera was very supportive throughout. The venue looked beautiful, the food was amazing and the catering staff and bar staff were great. We will highly recommend Applewood Hall!

If you want an outdoor ceremony, I don’t think there's a more beautiful setting!
We had been planning an intimate American wedding on a beach and then coronavirus came along and gave us a huge decision; do we wait or do we find somewhere beautiful in England? Well I’m so glad we went for the second option, we got to have our wedding outdoors which was so so so important to us, in the beautiful garden at Applewood Hall. Kiera was amazing from the moment we booked, always keeping in contact, through calls and zooms and when we were able to-socially distanced meetings. She answered all of my crazy panicked questions no matter the time! We are so grateful for the whole team at Applewood Hall for creating our beautiful wedding day. I honestly couldn’t recommend them enough, and if you want an outdoor ceremony I don’t think there is a more beautiful setting.

A beautiful wedding venue
Marcie and I got married at Applewood Hall on 7th August 2021. We loved the venue and all the staff were friendly and well organised throughout the planning set up and delivery of our wedding. Kiera, the wedding planner, was excellent and no problem was too big or small for her to fix. Her attention to detail and support was outstanding. Thank you also to Dawn for the excellent Afternoon Tea and BBQ. Thank you again, I fully recommend Applewood Hall as a beautiful wedding venue.

We wish we could do it all again!
We got married at Applewood Hall on 31.07.2021. We had an amazing day and the venue looked fab, especially with the beautiful blossom trees from Sammy at Prestige. All of our guests enjoyed it and commented on the food (Afternoon Tea and the BBQ in the evening). The food was amazing and thanks to Dawn and her team. It was great to have the wedding we always wanted and at one point had 175 guests in attendance. The music was on point and I don’t think there was a moment when the dance floor was empty. Our friends and family also enjoyed being able to stay onsite in the Shepherd’s CabinS and Glamping Pods. This made it even more special as we got to celebrate over the whole weekend. We wish we could do it all again! Mr and Mrs Dacosta x

Thank you so much for everything you've done to help us plan our amazing day and for all the support you gave us throughout an awful time. You helped us make our theme and day the best ever, we can’t thank Kiera enough.

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!
