Fabulous wedding venue

Where do we start? Everything was simply amazing. The most gorgeous venue, the brilliant events team and the wonderful backdrop of Highland Coos!

Everyone was so helpful right from first enquiry and show around, and the Norwood Black Book of suppliers was also invaluable.

The day itself ran like clockwork and we didn鈥檛 have to worry about a thing - we were just left to enjoy every moment, which we most certainly did!

All our guests thought the venue, food and service were fantastic so a big thank you to everyone at Norwood Park!

December wedding

Wow where do I begin, if you are looking for the perfect venue for your wedding this is the one.

We got married at Norwood in December 2023, the day was perfect! The staff are amazing and made sure the day ran smoothly, the guests commented on how good the staff were. The food was delicious, from the canap茅s to the wedding breakfast and the evening food.

The venue itself is stunning with beautiful grounds. They also had a massive stunning Christmas tree up with it being December, which made the most loveliest photos and one of the reasons we wanted this venue for our December wedding.

We couldn't fault the day and we 100% recommend this venue.

Looking forward to going back to the winter ball next December.

Thank you again for the most amazing day.

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
