About

Wedding ceremonies and wedding celebrations have been performed here at Norwood Park since the late 1650s. With more than 350 years of experience, you can trust us to host your unique, bespoke and truly remarkable wedding.

Norwood Park’s weddings come in all shapes, sizes, and styles. We can transform the House, Gardens, and Gallery into a wonder of different styles from traditional English to fairytale affairs, from roaring 20's soirees to fancy tea parties and from Arabian nights to raucous rock'n'roll get-togethers and so much more besides. The only limitation is your imagination. We embrace all styles of weddings and with our extensive local and national contacts we can deliver exactly the wedding you dream of. The House Norwood Park is available for exclusive use for your wedding. With stunning interiors, vast grounds, a critically acclaimed kitchen team and centuries-old wine cellar, Norwood Park offers guests an extraordinary opportunity to stay and celebrate in this grand Country House residence. Particular highlights of the House include the splendid Georgian Drawing Room and Dining Room, capacious Ante-Room, antique-filled Library, breath-taking cantilevered staircase, enormous Hall and 21 sumptuous guest bedrooms and suites. The adjacent grand Gallery and permanent Marquee are equally impressive. Guests may also enjoy the private walled courtyards, all ideal photograph opportunities. Norwood Park remains the home of the Starkey family as it has been for nearly 150 years. As such it has been restored not as a Hotel, but rather as a stunning, eccentric, opulent and stylish Country House. Here you will find the random whimsy of original Georgian wallpapers, restored Regency fireplaces, 200-year-old rugs and reams of the original Vanity Fair albums. Wedding Ceremony Indoors and outdoors? Norwood Park is licensed to hold civil ceremonies in the Drawing Room which seats up to 75 guests, the Gallery which can seat up to 150 guests or our outside gazebo which can seat up to 100 guests and has standing room for a further 50 guests. If you're looking for a traditional wedding ceremony look no further than the Southwell Minster or churches located a short walk or drive from Norwood Park. Wedding Reception Big or small, that is the question? Here at Norwood Park, we have 3 different rooms available for your Wedding Reception. The first is the Gallery seating up to 150 guests, followed by the Dining Room seating 50 guests and finally the Morning Room set to seat 30 guests. We can also accommodate private dining for more intimate affairs. Wedding Party Once the vows are spoken, speeches delivered, dining done and formal photos complete, it's time to party with your family and guests! The Gallery at Norwood Park is an ideal and spacious venue to celebrate in style with up to 250 guests. With ample room for bands, a large dance floor, full bar and outside courtyard for relaxing (cooling off), Norwood Park has all the facilities you could want for a unique and memorable Wedding Party! Alternatively, more intimate Weddings may choose to party after the Wedding Breakfast in the Main House: Morning Room, Bramley Bar, and the Arches.

    Would recommend this venue a thousand times over!

    Norwood Park made our dreams come true on Sunday; my husband and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting to tie the knot. The staff could not do enough for you, every request was fulfilled with a smile. I can’t express how thankful and happy I am that I chose this venue for my day. Would recommend a thousand times over!

    An unforgettable time at Norwood Park

    Me and my wife Abbie had a wonderful wedding here. The staff were exceptional and attentive. Our wedding went so smoothly. Thank you to everyone at Norwood for making our day so great. We had a unforgettable time here and I know I can say the same for all our guests too. Plus the food is divine.

    Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou

    We wanted to get in touch to say thank you all for making our day the most AMAZING day of our lives.
    From those days back in Sept 2009 when we first booked the venue, to our wedding in May this year, your help and assistance was fantastic. The whole day went without a hitch and even if it had, we knew nothing would get past you guys (well there was one small hitch, my friends lost wedding ring that Kristy still managed to find on the floor in the courtyard!!)
    As we expected, ALL of our guests loved the venue, grounds, the accommodation and we have been told by all of them (and are still being told now!), that the food was the best they had ever tasted at a wedding, (we already knew this from our tasting session!)

    So THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU for making our special day, absolutely perfect.........we could not have done it without you.

    A perfect day and un dia perfecto!

    We knew from our first visit to Norwood Park that we were in good hands but Sasha and Matt's weding day last week exceeded all our expectations and gave them the English country wedding they had dreamt of. The weather on the day was better than we ever hoped for, but it was your hard work "behind the scenes" that made the day run so smoothly. Thank you isn't enough to express how much we appreciate all you have done, we couldn't have chosen a better venue and better people.

    Thank you all so much

    When my daughter booked the date 18 months ago we knew that the house was beautifuland that the day would be great but I don't think i realized how special it would be. The house and gardens looked fantastic and the staff were wonderful. Also those family members who stayed overnight were treated to the most luxurious bedrooms and wonderful breakfast. Thank you again for all that you contributed to Catherine and Matt's special day

    Thank you so much everyone!

    Norwood Park really sells itself as the perfect wedding venue, it is breathtakingly beautiful and so well maintained you can’t not fall in love with it. Having seen lots of other local venues, we were delighted to finally find one that ticked all of the boxes on our list.
    What we hadn’t given much thought to at the time was that the people working in these places would play a part in our wedding too. This was one of our most pleasant surprises on finding Norwood as well as the beautiful and individually decorated bedrooms for our guests. The team made our whole experience amazing right from the early planning stages through to the big day. Nothing was too much trouble for Pirie our co-ordinator, and we were so pleased to have them all around us on the our day. If there were any issues, we were not aware of them and nor were our guests, who have all told us how lovely they thought the place was and that the food really was of exceptional quality, presentation and all timed to perfection. Of course we completely agree with them!
    We cannot recommend Norwood Park highly enough and we have such wonderful memories to look back on, thanks to the friendly professionalism of the wedding co-ordinator Pirie and her colleagues.
    Thank you so much everyone
