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 Grove Farm orchard, Applewood Hall served as the apple store during 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 6 cosy Glamping Pods and 5 luxury en-suite Shepherd's Cabins providing the perfect retreat after a long night on the dancefloor. Spacious 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 Zoological Gardens, Norfolk's award-winning family attraction, so if you fancy 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 for making our day perfect!
Not only is Applewood Hall a blank canvas, allowing you to create a day that fits your theme perfectly, the surrounding grounds are absolutely gorgeous. In the heart of the Banham countryside, the venue is surrounded by greenery, fields and fresh air. There are ample photo opportunities around the campsite, and the garden of the hall is beautiful. With the choice of two ceremony rooms, you really can tailor the venue to fit the vibe, and guest count, to however you want it. We were looking for a full blown DIY craft project, so Applewood Hall was perfect. Even the name of the venue is adorable! But the most memorable part of Applewood Hall (and the stars of the show) are the two front line ladies behind the venue, Kiera and Chloe. From the moment we met Kiera at the open day, she was welcoming and inviting, and was so knowledgable and insightful about EVERYTHING. With millions of questions leading up to the big day, Kiera was so accommodating, and nothing was too much hassle. Unfortunately Kiera wasn’t able to join us for our big day (we were thinking of you!), but her care and professionalism on the planning was beyond perfect. However, instead of Kiera joining us on the big day, we were joined by Chloe. Whilst Chloe is a newer member of the Applewood team, you would’ve thought her and Kiera had been running the show together for decades. Chloe is the epitome of calm and fun: on the day of our setup she was in and out, having a giggle and helping us make the venue perfect. She wasn’t afraid to roll her sleeves up and help make the finishing touches perfect, and on the day itself, Chloe eliminated any last minute nerves I had and just made us both feel super comfortable and excited. Also, her window-blocking-star-jump skills were fantastic, making sure no guests saw my dress whilst I ran to the loo 😂 It’s brilliant that Chloe has brought her wedding knowledge from her previous jobs, and her and Kiera are a fantastic team. On the day, Chloe was so accommodating and helpful, but also an absolute pro at sneaking away and letting us crack on with our day. She’s magical - at some points, I genuinely forgot she was even there, but as soon as I had a question, or something needed sorting, I turned around and she was there ready. She was also a star at bar duty, ensuring my glass of Disaronno was never less than half full 😜 and the rest of the staff (all the bar staff, waiting staff and Dawn the chef) were brilliant. The food was delicious, and so many of our guests have said it was the perfect wedding. Thank you all for making our day perfect. We’ve already recommended you guys to all our friends, which is also a teeeeny bit influenced by the fact we will get to return and visit at their weddings! Love from the Wheelers ✨

If we could do it all again, we would!
We both fell in love with Applewood Hall when we first saw it. It was the first, and only, venue we viewed as when we walked in, we knew this was the one. The hall is decorated in a marquee style with a large bar and good-sized dance floor. The lighting is so beautiful. We got married at the venue at 11am, so were lucky enough to spend the whole day celebrating with close family and friends. The staff were friendly and professional throughout the day, nothing was too much trouble. Kiera made sure that the day ran like clockwork, and I could relax knowing she had it all under control. We were lucky enough to have absolutely gorgeous weather on the day, it was around 38 degrees. The venue was lovely and cool and plenty of water was provided throughout the day. This also didn't stop the guests spending time playing games in the beautiful garden. Everyone told us that it was the most relaxed and enjoyable wedding they had ever attended. If we could do it all again, we would! Thank you to Kiera for our wonderful day!

We had THE MOST magical day, thanks to Kieras super organisational skills and with her teams help, everything was just perfect. Great that you can decorate it how you like. It was the first place we viewed and we fell in love! Kiera helped in so many ways, always a swift and helpful reply as well. Everything went so smooth. So organised, but relaxed at the same time. A massive thank you to all at Applewood Hall from Keira and team to Dawn and team. Food was amazing. my husband and I still can not get over how magical and perfect Applewood made our day!! xx xx

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!

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.

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.

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!
