Want a stunning countryside wedding?! Look no further

Godwick as a venue was everything we wanted. The barn and scenery was stunning and meant no matter the weather you were guaranteed a beautiful countryside wedding. The accommodation onsite is also incredible and turned the celebrations into a 2 day affair! The team gave us free rein and supported all the ideas we had to make the wedding really bespoke. They were very responsive, flexible and went above and beyond. Would highly recommend them to any couple.

Pure Magic

Where do we start about this incredible venue and superb team?

We were completely taken with the Barn and its unique surroundings when we had our first meeting with James and after taking a look around Godwick Hall, the stables and shepherds huts there was no question that we knew this was where we wanted to get married and it did not disappoint.

Every guest who celebrated with us was blown away by how beautiful the venue was. Our family and friends who were able to stay with us and share all the accommodation on site had the most amazing long weekend which was the perfect way to extend the celebrations.

Our event co-ordinator, Megan, couldn't have been more helpful and supportive throughout the whole process and under Megan's supervision the day was completely perfect and we felt so lucky it was ours!

We will be recommending Godwick to anyone we can, not just for a wedding but for a special and memorable weekend away and we so hope to be back soon to relive the amazing memories we made.

A huge thank you to the whole Godwick team who made everything so special for us. We couldn't be more grateful.

What an incredible 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 showcasing the fact that they are experts at what they do - creating great weddings and making people very very happy! Thanks Godwick team :-)

Amazing Venue

Godwick Great Barn is an amazing wedding venue. They were so flexible and helpful during the planning and could not do enough for us in the lead up and on the day.

The staff are all wonderful and we had the most amazing wedding day! The venue itself is just beautiful. We wouldn’t change a thing and are so glad we got married here.

Perfect Venue

Godwick was the perfect venue! A beautiful setting with amazing staff, giving the right balance of support and freedom. We wanted an outside ceremony but the weather had other ideas, but the staff did everything they could to try make this come true until the final hour, before creating a beautiful indoor ceremony that was just as perfect. The opportunity to have this venue alongside having our friends and family there for the weekend in a gorgeous accommodation was amazing!

Wedding at Godwick Hall

Godwick Hall is the most beautiful and stunning setting for a wedding. We had a truly fabulous day and the team at Godwick are so professional, thoughtful and attentive throughout the process and on the day itself. We could not have wished for anything more it was the perfect day, thank you.

A wedding dream come true!

We made the best decision choosing for our wedding to be held at Godwick. In the early stages it can feel overwhelming with the amount of venues and suppliers on offer but we would not have wished for a more perfect experience at Godwick.

From the very moment of booking in our date, we were made to feel supported in the planning for our wedding as well as a big sense of freedom being able to choose our own caterer, florist, band, DJ, stylist etc.
The Godwick team were always there for advice but not pushy or adding on £££ for every decision we made.

All of the team were so incredibly helpful and friendly along the way. We were assigned a wedding planner who was always there to answer questions and offer advice via email and an online platform and they supported us on the day and afterwards.

The grounds are stunning - the barn, folly and hall. We were able to make such an occasion celebrating over the whole weekend making use of the hall and all it has to offer.

We made memories with family and friends at Godwick that will last for a lifetime. We could not be more grateful to the Godwick team for making the day so perfect - it really was a dream come true.

Couldn't have hoped for more x

Finding the perfect location for your wedding is insanely difficult. Wedding are (and are increasingly) expensive and for mere mortals like us it was important to find the right price coupled with the right location/service. Virtually impossible, we discovered.

However. Having visited several places within approx 50 miles of where we live, we found a few barns / rustic-style venues and Godwick stood out as the best physically and BY FAR the best for price and service.

You never know for sure and it's a nervy thing to jump into, but we couldn't have been luckier - and we couldn't be happier with what we got. The team is Godwick is attentive and helpful with everything. The recommended vendors are great but they're also happy for you to shop around. Their experience means they really can help with everything.

Fully recommend the accommodation along with the barn! We thought it would be nice to have a gathering of our top-tier guests the day before and the morning after, but it was so much more than that. The space is made for casual socialising. Everyone bonding and getting to know each other. Plenty of space and comfort for privacy. And naturally the rooms (varying by size of course) are all great, and the best ones are 5star luxury.

This is a 5star review, in case I don't get the chance to make that clear! Couldn't have asked for more.

December 2022 Wedding

We booked an Elopement Wedding package at this beautiful venue . House and gardens pretty much all to ourselves , and additionally we stayed in one of the Shepherds Huts for 2 nights ..Cosy ,comfy and warm in December..
It was just we two for the wedding but were supported by a wonderful team of staff who clearly love their roles and made us feel genuinely special.
At the forefront of the team was Debbie Lee and we cannot praise her highly enough .
From the start she was personable , friendly, professional and a gentle guiding hand from start to finish . Always available and first class communications by email , phone or text .
Simply put she is a kind, caring , lovely person and we were in safe hands . In addition she was one of our witnesses ..
If you wish to have a perfect , trouble free wedding in beautiful rural Norfolk then what are you waiting for ?.
Highly , highly recommended..
