Stunning venue, amazing staff. 10/10!
We got married at Norwood Park in early October and we can’t recommend the venue more. Not only was the venue perfect for what we wanted but the service was exceptional. The country house is traditional but with a beautiful modern twist and the grounds are exquisite, with lots of different areas to explore for photos on the day, such as the orchard, lake and temple. The bedrooms are all of excellent quality, with a luxurious but individual feel. We also used the orangery for the bridal party to get ready in which I would highly recommend as it allowed us to get ready at the venue in a really special environment. The large bar and dance floor area is another highlight of the venue as it’s a great social area for the evening with a good size dance floor, plenty of space for the band and people to dance, along with comfortable sofas. From our first visit to the day itself, the staff at Norwood were welcoming, friendly and hospitable. A special shout out to Richard here for his genuine warmth and being helpful and personable throughout the process, this really made things a lot easier for us. The staff always made us feel like nothing was too much trouble, even at the last minute, and were highly communicative and friendly throughout. On the day, Richard and Maddie ensured everything ran smoothly on the day and our guests commented on how professional this was. The food and service of this was also excellent, with many guests commenting on the quality of the roast beef dinner and the Yorkshire puddings! The breakfast the next morning was also brilliant. Thank you to everyone at Norwood Park for making our day so magical. Choosing Norwood was one of the best decisions in our wedding process and we are so thrilled we did!

The most magical day we could have dreamed off
The most magical and amazing day when we had our wedding at Norwood Park! I knew it was the one before we even went to view the venue in person. The staff were unbelievably amazing right from out first visit to the day after our wedding. The day ran so smoothly and the sun was shining. Richard Ward in particularly was so supportive and we couldn’t have asked for anything more! I miss going to visit the venue and emailing them! Would love to do the day all over again if it was possible!

Norwood Park made our dreams come true!
Norwood Park made our dreams come true on Sunday; my husband and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting to tie the knot. The staff could not do enough for you, every request was fulfilled with a smile. I can’t express how thankful and happy I am that I chose this venue for my day. Would recommend a thousand times over!

We offer a fabulous After Dark experience for Brides and Grooms with their staying guests, where they can continue their celebration into the early hours of the morning with a Magnum of Champagne, delicious vintage wines, boutique beers and a Charcuterie board to fill up on.
