The best day ever!!

After viewing a few venues and not finding the right fit, myself and my now husband along with my parents had left another venue when my dad suggested we stop at Norton house for a coffee and ask if we were able to have a look around!
Thankfully Jen was just finishing with another couple and had time before another meeting to show us around the hotel and grounds! Once leaving we had that giddy excitement of this is THE ONE!!
We booked not long after our first viewing and I have to say Jen was exceptional in communication from start to end! And the week of and on the day we had the lovely Wiki who made sure our day ran smoothly and was perfect from start to end!
We can’t thank the whole team at Norton house enough for an amazing day every tiny detail didn’t go unnoticed 🤍🤍🤍

The best venue for our day! Highly recommend!

Cant recommend Norton House Hotel enough!

They went out their way from start to finish to make sure everything was perfect for us. Laura was great when we had our meetings and replied to all my emails quickly. Jillian looked after us on the day and she was great and made sure everything was as we wanted. The food was amazing, everyone commented on how good it was! Everything about the day was what we wanted and we couldn't recommend them anymore! 😊x

Beautiful venue & Amazing service

Why did we choose the Norton House?

For us the Norton House Hotel was the obvious choice due to it's beautiful grounds and excellent reputation for service. As we had lots of guests travelling from the South of England we wanted a venue that could host the ceremony, reception and accommodation all under one roof. When we visited the Norton House we knew it was the venue for us as we liked the vibe and the staff were very welcoming and spent a lot of time with us showing us around and answering all our questions.

We had a choice between the Ballroom and the Garden Room. We chose the more contemporary Garden room. As nature lovers we liked the big windows to let in the light and views of the walled garden which was in late summer bloom.

What menu did you have, did anything inspire this choice?

Our food tasting appointment gave us a chance to sample various options from the menu. And we made a night out of it, bringing both sets of parents along to help us decide on what would be most interesting and crowd pleasing for our guests. Luckily most people liked our choices, the feedback was great and the staff catered well for all those with different dietary requirements and allergies.

Advice for brides getting married this year ?

As our wedding venue was far from our house, we found the wedding fayre at the Norton House helpful. It was a quick way of meeting various suppliers and the ones we recruited from there were all great.

Great venue for a wedding

Myself and Jo would like to thank you all very much for making our wedding a special day. From start to finish your team were outstanding. Food was delicious so big thanks to the chefs. Rooms were spotlessly clean. So not just a thank you to the events team but the whole hotel staff.

We would like you pass on our thanks to Jonny and his team for ensuring that all went as smoothly as possible even with a 45min wait for the Bride. The meal and service throughout the evening was first class. Jonny's constant attention helped keep Audrey and myself relaxed during the event allowing us to enjoy our day to the full.

Once again thanks so much to the team and The Norton House Hotel for the service and hospitality received.

Kind regards
John and Audrey

Just wanted to send a little note of Massive Thanks!!

We cannot thank you enough for your support and the donating your amazing gift of being our wedding venue for our big day, can you also please pass on a massive thank you to all the staff that helped from us too.

We could not have had half of what we managed to have for our special day without your generous donation to Forth One’s Cash for Kids win your wedding competition, everything went like clockwork for us. The sun even made an appearance too, yippee!

Everyone is still talking about the whole day, from the fantastic venue, location, amazing food that we all had. Gutted we didn’t get any of the buffet food though haha as I believe it was top notch too!

Also a great thanks to you for all of your organising of this too, it wouldn’t have happened without you both….Lisa before and on the build-up and Gavin for doing such an amazing job of keeping me calm as I knew everything was under control.

Thank you to you all again.

November Wedding

I would just like to say a big thank you to the staff at Norton House, who were without doubt, a major factor in the wedding going to plan and for making the day one of the most memorable days of our life's. I can honestly say that I can find no fault at all with the service provided by Norton House, not only from a professional level but also, on a personal level as well. Please accept my sincere thanks to you personally for accommodating us in basically all our requests, nothing was too much trouble. Even when we delayed the meals by half an hour, the food was still piping hot and delicious, which many of our guests paid compliments too so hats off to the chef as well!

Wonderful ! Fantastic ! A Dream !!!! Truely Amazing

We got married at Norton House in December 2005 and I can truly say that the day was perfect. The venue itself is stunning but was made even more special by the incredibly friendly and very professional staff. Their attention to detail was superb and the day went without a hitch. The food was superb and lots of people commented that it was the best that they had ever had at a wedding. Lots of weddings are held at Norton House and I had fears that we would be treated like we were on a conveyor belt but I can safely say that our day felt totally unique and was nothing short of a dream come true.

The perfect wedding location - great food, service and location.

I couldn't praise Norton House highly enough. The whole day was fantastic and ran like clockwork. In the run up, every little query was dealt with efficiently. Norton house managed to accommodate all the requests of a neurotic bride, including setting up the room just the way I'd wanted it.

The food was good and the waiting staff managed to ensure that no-ones wine glass was empty.

Gorgeous setting with lovely grounds - perfect on a summers day for drinks in the gardens.
