About Holkham Hall

Norfolk, NR23 1AB

On the north Norfolk coast Holkham Hall is an impressive Palladian house and one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the country. Holkham is home to the Earls of Leicester and the hall is filled with character and history.

We are licensed for wedding ceremonies and you can select from a range of venues to make your vows. There are four state rooms within the hall; the grand Saloon, the stunning Marble Hall, the impressive Statue Gallery or the more intimate, North State Dining Room.

Hidden away in the woods in Holkham Park you will find the stunning Temple which is also available for your ceremony. Alternatively there is the Church of St Withburga in the north-west of Holkham, which is available for couples with a residency or family link to the church.

Following your ceremony, there are many options for wedding receptions and parties. Drinks and canapés can be served in the state rooms of the hall and the contemporary Lady Elizabeth Wing provides a perfect venue for receptions and parties. You can also choose from the secluded walled garden, the panoramic landscape of Holkham park and picturesque Temple, all of which provide perfect locations for marquee receptions.

Our knowledgeable team will be on hand at every stage to offer help and guidance, whilst giving you the freedom and flexibility to design your day.  

• Licensed to hold civil ceremonies in four state rooms in the hall • Ceremony can be held in the Temple in the Park • Canapés and drinks can take place in the hall • Wedding breakfasts in the Lady Elizabeth Wing or in a marquee in the park or walled garden • 20 bedrooms available for your guests

A huge THANK YOU to Nerida, Miranda, Hooker and the rest of the Holkham staff. We had the most amazing couple of days with you all and honestly cannot thank you enough. May anybody getting married here in the future be lucky enough to have you guys looking after them as much as you looked after us.

We wanted to say a massive thank you to you and everyone at Holkham for all your help and support. We had the best weekend and all of our guests said how beautiful Holkham was. Everything went really smoothly from setting up and the clear down on Sunday morning - we really appreciate all your help and advice. Thank you again - next time we come to Holkham we will definitely come and see you to say hello!

Miranda, Nerida. Wow, what can we say!! You can probably tell from our beaming faces but we just wanted to thank you for what was an absolutely incredible day! You both have been so fantastic, from the moment we met you last July, to yesterday morning clearing up! Your commitment and enthusiasm to helping us have the best day ever did not go unnoticed by us - nor by all of our guests! It was a truly magical day and we can't stop looking at the photos! (Bearing in mind that these are only the "amateur" photos and we haven't even seen Kathy's yet!) You truly have a great thing going on at Holkham, and we are so pleased to be one of the first couples to have used the LEW - I'm sure you expect busy times ahead!! We feel an even stronger connection now to Holkham and can't wait to spend more and more time there in the near future.

Dear Miranda, Nerida, Laura and the team! Just a small note to say thank you for your support, assistance and great attention upon organising our special day. We really enjoyed ourselves and our guests loved their day out in Norfolk. Holkham will always have a special place in our hearts.

Dear Nerida and Miranda, Thank you so much for everything you did to help make our wedding day so perfect. From being on hand to answer all our questions during the planning, through helping to coordinate our various suppliers, to ‘hiding’ the bridesmaids and ‘smacking’ the dress, your whole team were brilliant! We had the most wonderful day; it was everything we had envisaged and more. We are still receiving compliments from our guests, who were blown away by the venue and the grandeur of the day. Many thanks also to Archie – a very talented pianist! – and for your thoughtful card. We loved every minute of our special day at Holkham and only wish we could do it all again!

Thank you and the whole team at Holkham for all your help leading up to and on the day. Nerida, Laura and Sharon really pulled out all the stops and ensured it all ran seamlessly. Everyone had a fantastic day and people couldn’t get over the venue, along with Tanya’s stunning dress. Our guests didn’t get through all the wine, so we have a few cases to enjoy with friends when they visit and can relive the day.

By Laura and Jonathan Taylor, on 23 May 2017Date of Wedding - 25 Mar 2017

Thank you to everyone at Holkham for making our day so wonderful. Miranda, Nerida and Alan went above and beyond to make sure our day went off without a glitch. We were so lucky with the weather, glorious sunshine from start to finish, which made for some beautiful photos at the Obelisk and down by the lake. We are off to Mauritius in a couple of weeks and will be taking wine from the wedding day to drink and relive the memories from the best day of our lives

Dear Miranda, We just wanted to say a big thank you for all the help and guidance you gave us in preparing for our amazing wedding at Holkham Hall. As you know you have a stunning venue, which all our guests appreciated and got to experience a bit of Norfolk! I am sure that next year you are going to be very busy with weddings… however we are pleased to say we got to experience the LEW in its first few months. Thank you for everything.
