Everything and more!
We recently got married at Curds Hall Barn and cannot recommend them enough! Everything about our day was perfect and that’s down to both the beautiful venue and the wonderful team. From our first viewing of Curds Hall, we knew it was special and had so much potential. The fact that it’s dog friendly too was a massive win for us as we wanted to include our pup in the day! Being a blank canvas allowed us make the venue look exactly how we envisioned it and the team were so accommodating with visits and planning. The three day hire took away the stress of set up as we could get everything ready to go the day before. Having no corkage fees was a real bonus too! Annabelle was our Event Coordinator and was incredible! From planning through to the big day she was always on hand to offer advice and support. She kept us calm throughout and made sure everything ran smoothly. We were so grateful to have her around! Curds Hall is a stunning venue and we couldn’t have asked for more!

Curds Hall Barn was our dream wedding venue from the first time we viewed it and our day couldn’t have been any more perfect. We cannot recommend the CHB team highly enough, a special thank you to Annabelle who is clearly made for events management, planning everything meticulously, always available for questions and just an all round lovely person who made us feel so relaxed on the lead up to and on the day of the wedding, knowing everything was in her capable hands. Thank you so much again for our special day! ☺️

The best day of our lives
We booked curds hall back in feb 2021, without viewing in person due to covid. We did the virtual online tour and immediately knew this was the one.. as soon as lockdown was lifted we was in the car on the way! Oh my goodness.. it didn’t disappoint. The excitement you get leading up to the barn. It was everything and more! A perfect blank canvas to do everything we visioned. From this moment, the contact between us and the amazing venue manger Eleanor has been 10/10. From recommending companies, chasing our suppliers for me, offering support whenever we needed. We felt so at ease, knowing our big day was in safe hands. As moments got tense leading up to the wedding day itself, Eleanor handed me a day plan/checklist, all our set up times, are supplies details, our big day plan. I had nothing to stress about! The day of set up, Eleanor was there to help me when I wasn’t sure if things didn’t look right, extra pair of hands when things needed putting up. Answering my last minute questions, even making sure our toddler was happy. On the day… she helped the boys put on their button holes, she greeted all our guests. She greeted myself and my bridal party at the car with our photographer. She introduced me to the registrars! Calmed my last minute nerves. Photos.. miles and miles of beautiful photo background scenery, she even walked behind carrying my shoes when my feet gave up. I just couldn’t have asked for anything more, we then had a lovely lady take over late on into the evening who again, we couldn’t fault! She was helping bar staff tidy glasses, making sure we was all happy. Making sure any spilt drinks was cleaned straight away! She made sure all our belongings was taken from outside in the barn over night. The next day the girls had completely tidied the whole venue and put all our decor in one area so all we had to do was box up! we was blown away with it all, We then met Annabel, who was just again so lovely and kind! The whole team at curds hall feel like a little family, we are extremely sad our day has been and gone but we will certainly be back for a walk round and catch up with Eleanor and her team with our family.

So happy that we chose this venue
Curds Hall Barn is the most amazing venue. It was a perfect set up to make the day so personal and how we wanted it to be. The barn/buildings/grounds and accommodation are beautiful and it looks like so much love and care has been put in to it to doing it up. All communications leading up to the day were handled quickly and helpfully by Eleanor and Annabelle and it really put us at ease knowing we had made the right choice. They are so friendly and welcoming, along with everyone else who works there who we met. I cannot thank Eleanor enough for all the support she gave us with our wedding planning, honestly wouldn't have been the same without her! So grateful for her being there on the day sorting everything out so it all went smoothly (and also so we didn't notice if it didn't!). We absolutely loved our day and wish we could do it again - and if we could, we would choose CHB every time!

The perfect venue
We could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding than Curds Hall Barn. Everything about it is what we imagined for our ideal wedding and more. Curds Hall Barn is in the most idillic setting, in rural Norfolk. The barn is absolutely beautiful and fitting perfectly with the rustic design we wanted. Eleanor and Annabel were dedicated to making our wedding the perfect day. We had many meetings to ensure that everything was how we would want it and that everything on the day would run smoothly. On the day of our wedding Eleanor went above and beyond and her attention to detail was second to none. The absolute cherry on the cake was when the owners at Curds Hall arranged for a tractor and combine harvester to arrive in the field next to the venue. My husband was over the moon to see these and every child at our wedding was gobsmacked. We had our ceremony outside and our wedding breakfast in the beautiful wood shed. We would highly recommend this beautiful venue.

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We have been very lucky to have seen a huge variety in the weddings that we have hosted so far. From festival vibes with outside dancing to a rustic extravaganza complete with pet sheep and even a country and western inspired day! The best weddings are definitely those where the couples embrace their individual style and passions.

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

Planning a wedding can be a very difficult time for couples to manage the expectations of others with pressure from many areas. I would always encourage couples to try and focus on achieving the day of THEIR dreams and to try not be swayed by the wants and needs of others.

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

My favourite personal touch was when one of my couples decided to take some time out of their drink reception to find a quiet spot to re-read their vows to each other in private. I always advise couples to try and find a couple of little 'time outs' during the day together as the day can go by so quickly and you can find yourselves very busy hosting with little time for each other. This was such a beautiful way of connecting in the moment on their special day. ...I must say, I did also love watching a room full of guests take a shot of whiskey during a celebrant-led ceremony to toast the happy couple - that definitely got the party started!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Friendly, rustic, scenic, flexible, versatile

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

With over 12 acres of parkland and fields and buildings dating from the 17th Century, there are so many options! With unbroken views for miles, the golden evening sun and particularly the Autumn sunsets with a countryside backdrop are simply spectacular - real mantelpiece stuff! My favourite spot is under the mature copper beech tree when it is in full leaf.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Not yet...

What’s your favourite canapé?

I love a goats cheese and red onion tartlet!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

I have loved seeing the variety of evening treats that our couples have chosen recently, particularly some of the food truck offerings. Dirty fries always seem to go down well!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The long sweeping driveway definitely builds suspense before revealing the incredible flintwork and red brick walls of the barn but the most unique feature is probably the original Grain Store and Hopper which have been retained in full, providing a point of interest for photographs.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our team. Curds Hall Barn is a family run business and even those of us who are not officially related feel like family now! The team work very hard behind the scenes and genuinely enjoy going the extra mile supporting our couples through their planning journey and on the wedding day itself. We appreciate our privileged position as a part of your wedding day, taking great pride in getting to know couples and forging some wonderful friendships along the way.
