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

The hard choice wasn’t whether to choose Holkham, but which of the five possible venues to choose within Holkham. At the time of our viewing, Holkham were in the very first steps of commencing the new Lady Elizabeth Wing. The Lady Elizabeth Wing is a purpose wedding venue but built within and using the original estate buildings and surrounding courtyards. We immediately fell in love with the design which focused on light and wood to fully bring in the surroundings together with the mod cons in lighting, cooking facilities, sound and bar which meant our wedding was going to be well catered for in all respects. Therefore, despite strong competition, especially from the lake, we chose the Lady Elizabeth Wing venue. We also had the excitement of being only the second wedding due to be held there.

We got married at the Temple in 2015. The venue was a dream come true, tucked away in the woods so we were completely private and surrounded by nature. Besides the birth of my son, getting married was the happiest day of my life, and that’s mostly down to such a beautiful venue. I got driven through the park in my vintage VW Camper van and everyone was waving! The staff were really helpful too. If I could, I’d relive that day again and I wouldn’t change a thing! Can’t recommend enough.
