    Perfect wedding

    We got married at Hockwold Hall in June 2021, straight after the covid restrictions were eased for weddings. Richard and his team could not be more accommodating in making sure we had the day we wanted after what had been a stressful time. Give the venue is large we were able to have all the guests we wanted while still social distancing. We hired the venue for 2 nights and were able to have an event the night before the wedding also, which made the celebrations even more special. We can’t stress enough how relaxed, professional and accommodating the Hockwold team were!
    The caterers that work with Hockwold were also incredible and we got so many comments on how delicious all the food was.
    MyFleur decorations company run by Julia also made the marquee and flowers look absolutely amazing.

    Our experience with the supplier was fantastic!

    Thank you so much for making our day so special. Me and my wife found Richard and the staff the be incredibly helpful, supportive and flexible. All our guests loved the venue and could not believe how stunning it was.

    We were able to have the wedding of our dreams at a very affordable rate. Transport links to Hockwold were very straight forward, the grounds were picturesque. We were allowed to use our own catering which was very important as we are Nigerian and so our guests had special dietary requirements.

    We wish Richard and the team all the best!

    The most magical day

    We held our reception at Hockwold Hall, and it was the best choice we ever made. Not only is the venue the most stunning, beautiful, charming place we've ever been, but Richard and his team were incredibly flexible, easy-going, professional, and very helpful. We also stayed overnight, and the bedrooms are absolutely delightful and full of character. We couldn't have picked a better place to hold our reception, and had we not married in a church, we probably would've had our ceremony there too! 11/10, would totally recommend!

    Fantastic Venue

    As soon as we view Hockwold Hall we knew it was the venue for us. Superb venue with stunning gardens. The flexibility of the day made it so easy for us to put our stamp on it. Even though Covid meant our plans had to change slightly, Richard and the team were so accommodating and really supported us in creating our dream wedding. We couldn't fault it, the only thing we didn't enjoy was leaving after a wonderful weekend.

    Great for both intimate and extravagant weddings

    This hall is great for both intimate wedding and larger ones too. The hosts are very flexible and helpful. The marquee looks amazing when decorated and the gardens are beautiful for photographs.

    Fantastic venue, perfect wedding!

    We had an amazing time hosting our wedding at Hockwold Hall across 2 days! The hall, grounds and marquee all looked incredible and the whole Hockwold team could not have been more helpful throughout our stay.
    I can't recommend this venue enough and look forward to returning in the future!

    Outstanding Wedding Venue

    I have worked at Hockwold Hall many times, and I have to say it is one of my favourite wedding venues in Norfolk. Stunning location, gorgeous accommodation, idyllic outdoor ceremonies and a beautiful marquee for the wedding reception.

    Definitely well worth a visit!

    Micro wedding

    I was lucky enough to get married in Oct 2020, it wasn’t easy planning with the changing rules but Hockwold Hall were available and were so flexible for us. After over 2 years of planning it was a different wedding than I had originally planned but the day was perfect and the staff were so helpful. The day ran smoothly and we plus the guests enjoyed the facilities available. I found it very cost effective for what you got and would highly recommend.

    Wedding Refund

    My wife and I had a wedding booked for 2020, but due to COVID it had to be cancelled. We applied to have our money refunded as per the contract we signed, and the owners are refusing to stick to their part of the contract. Unfortunately, the lack of professionalism in dealing with this case has lead to only one thing, a court case. It could have so easily been sorted out, again, as per the contract regarding refunds. More information will be added once the court case is over.

    Hockwold Hall's reply:

    Hello Roger Moore, I have no record of you booking a wedding here at Hockwold Hall. Unfortunately I am unable to comment on your accusation as we have no outstanding court cases as a result of COVID I think you may be leaving a review for the wrong venue?

    The most perfect weekend

    Well, where do I start?! From the moment we viewed the venue 2 years ago we just knew this was the place for us. We booked it straight away and had no hesitation in doing so. We fell in love with the beauty of the old building and grounds. What really sold it for us was the personalised nature of it all. We didn't feel like we were on the conveyer belt of one in one out. We had the venue for the whole weekend which worked perfectly. It allowed everyone to get to know each other a bit better before the main event. The really helped create the relaxed feel we were going for. You would never have known we got married in the middle of a worldwide pandemic (apart from the reduced numbers) and the grand size of the marquee made social distancing very easy. Richard was so accommodating to my many requests and nothing was compromised. If anything, it made it all even more extra special. I cannot thank the whole team at Hockwold Hall enough for making our day happen! We look forward to coming back to the Christmas Fayre. Thank you again, all the best, Chloe and Sam Everett.
