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

Our number one wedding planning tip is to make sure you start early and are super organised. Our Wedding diary is open up to 3 years in advance as it's always good to get a head start and it is surprising how quick things get booked up!

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

As each Wedding is different, it is so difficult to choose our favourite personal touch, however recently we had a music loving couple who brought along their vintage record players and a few of their favourite vinyl records to welcome their guests!

There are so many beautiful places for photographs at Norwood, each of our Events Team has their own unique spot. From the Bramley Apple Orchards, the historic Temple and the 1920s inspired Bramley Bar and Arches, there are so many stunning spaces it is hard to choose just one!

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

We have had a few, most recently Natalie Dormer from Game of Thrones attended a Wedding in the Autumn.

What’s your favourite canapé?

Each of the Events Team has a different favourite canapé created by our highly experienced Chefs! But the most popular are the mini Yorkshire puddings with roast beef and the halloumi and sesame seed bites.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

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. Or if you prefer, we can create a bespoke package just for you.
