Contemporary facilities, posh loos, modern kitchen and reception area with a bespoke bar. - An entertaining space that can seat up to 160. The barn has huge oak beams and high pitched roof which are amazing to look at, but also result in great acoustics. - A “blank canvas” venue that can be tailored to suit your own requirements with plenty of outside space for entertaining, garden games and outside ceremonies. - We offer three day hire packages with the wedding on the Saturday or a cheaper two-day hire midweek option on a Tuesday and Thursday throughout the year. Arrive the day before to add your design flair and customise the venue. Party hard on your wedding day, safe in the hands that our experienced team will look after you. Leave the day after once you have dusted off the hangover and cleared your stuff away. We have a a choice of ceremony locations inside the Barn or opt for an outside duo-ceremony. On site we have luxurious accommodation for up to 26 guests at nearby Godwick Hall, with 10 fabulously different bedrooms and three Shepherd’s Huts in the Hall grounds. Camping pitches are available at Godwick Great Barn for the wedding night. We offer our own in-house Godwick bar or you can supply your own alcohol with no corkage charge. You can choose your own caterers and we will recommend you a whole host of local suppliers that we know and love and trust at Godwick. Flexibility and a professional and friendly service are our key mantras, so we encourage you to design your own wedding with us on hand to help you along the way. Our wonderful outside spaces and ancient landscape provide a host of stunning photo opportunities. Godwick has never been an ordinary venue. Quirky, eccentric, but always wonderfully glorious.

Stunning Wedding Venue
Wedding August 2022. A massive thank you to all the team at Godwick. Initially booked back in 2019 and had to reschedule twice due to pandemic. Louise and the team at Godwick were supportive throughout arranging meetings around our childcare and work commitments which we really appreciated. Godwick appealed to us for many reasons but being able to extend our celebrations with close family in the hall was amazing. The hall itself was beautiful and we have such happy memories of our extended stay. All the staff were lovely! Cannot fault!

Perfect for our small family wedding!
Godwick Hall was the most wonderful choice for our 30 person wedding! From the moment we stepped foot in the house on our first visit, to the day itself, Debbie-Lee, James and the rest of the Godwick team were on hand to explain what was possible, help us realise our ideas, and support us in every way imaginable. We loved everything about our wedding - from waking up surrounded by our closest family and friends to a dip in the pool at the end of the evening! The drawing room was a wonderful, intimate setting for our vows, and James and Debbie-Lee helped our vision of an outdoor seated wedding breakfast come true. We would recommend Godwick to anyone hoping for a small, relaxed and joyous wedding day.

What an exceptional venue!
Such an incredible day and venue. The entire experience with Godwick was positive, calm and thought-through. The staff are fabulous - especially James the owner, as well as Debbie-Lee one of the Event Managers. Always on hand to help, nothing is too much trouble. It felt personal to us the whole weekend, whilst showingcasing the fact that they are experts at what they do - creating great weddings and making people very very happy! Thanks Godwick team :-)

Lovely location
Wedding was tailored to exactly what we wanted. It was a stress free, everyone was friendly and efficient. The location is lovely and we really enjoyed staying in the shepherds hut which was much bigger than we expected and well equipped. We had a perfect few days.

The best day ever
We couldn’t have been any happier with our wedding at Godwick hall! From the moment we met the team to after the wedding everything was perfect. They were so helpful, always carrying a ‘can do’ attitude! The venue is so picturesque and perfect for a rustic wedding! They are really flexible with how you want to decorate and even gave us some ideas for styling! They had so many recommendations for vendors, our wedding planner Debbie Lee was an amazing asset to our planning process, she joined in and was so excited to deliver us our perfect day, we can’t thank her enough!! Godwicks is the dream location for a Norfolk wedding and the team are first class!

A beautiful and intimate venue.
We chose to have only 18 guests and got married in the sitting room at Godwick Hall, followed by an amazing tractor ride to the ruins in our yellow wellies! All the guests loved the game room with table football, a darts board and a pool table. All of the details were looked after and it was a relaxing and beautiful day, we managed to avoid the hail storm!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Mine! No but seriously we have had loads of amazing weddings at Godwick, but how could I not say my own. We really did have an amazing autumn wedding in October 2015. We wanted to have a big old fashioned knees up, with a relaxed and informal atmosphere. I had some large rustic trestle tables made and these provided a fabulous communal banquet with large sharing platters and copious amounts of wine. We had great live music throughout the day, a wonderful ceremony, a big banquet dinner and then loads of dancing to a fabulous band, all set in my own wedding venue with all my family friends, what more could you want.

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

I'm a big believer in working out what your theme is and how you want your day to feel, what will the vibe be like? For us, we spent a long time figuring out our theme, which was based around a strong autumnal colour pallette, and a rustic, country feel with lots of tweeds and textures. We combined these with our desire to create a relaxed and informal event and ensured that our theme ran through the whole event from the stationary we had designed to the clothes we wore, to the styling of the venue and even the menu itself. I think this really helps an event hang together and the guests get a real sense of what your wedding is about. Of course, you need to choose a great venue, and one like Godwick that is flexible and customisable!!

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

We have had some wonderful, creative and stunning wedding arches for outside ceremonies, I love these.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Quirky, awesome, rustic, majestic, flexible

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The ruins of Godwick All Saints provide an amazing back drop to any wedding photography.

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

Yes we have had a few well known faces as guests, including Ireland rugby captain Rory Best. BBC London weather girl and presenter Wendy Hurrell also got married at Godwick and we have a super famous social media star getting hitched with us but as always we would never reveal their name, unless we have their permission of course!

What’s your favourite canapé?

I can't think of a canape I don't like, but it's hard to pass by any type of roasted grape adn goats cheese crostini... It is really suprising how good these are.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Toasted marshmallows on a roaring Godwick firepit of course

What is your venue's most unique feature?

We have a few unique features, but I guess our own vintage tractor, which acts as bridal transport from Godwick Hall to the Great Barn and takes couples to the ruins for photos is pretty unique. The venue itself is one of a kind and we love it for that.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

My team are an amazingly hard working bunch who are as passionate about Godwick as I am!
