By Nikita Fay, on 12 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Oct 2017

We have only positives to say about our incredible wedding venue... Everything about the wedding day was incredible from start to finish. Charlie and his team are amazing and we are truly so proud that we could have had our wedding at this venue. Everything was cleared up and nothing was too much trouble. We are so so grateful for all of the support and guidance from the team! We were treated so well, even when I was frantically emailing a few weeks before the big day. Every single guest said what a beautiful venue it is and how they wish they’d all knew about it when they got married. We will 100% boast about our day forever at this incredible place.

Fantastic Fun
Venue Service

By Rebecca Lower, on 28 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Sep 2017

Thursford is a breathtaking venue for a wedding, we were absolutely delighted with everything. Charlie is very attentive and organised and made us feel relaxed from the initial meeting, the outside lights in the evening are just amazing and very romantic, we had many guests comment on this and they walked around the garden because it was just so beautiful, more than I actually expected it to be. The fairground was also amazing and so enjoyable, our guests certainly enjoyed themselves, definitely a fun addition to have and well worth it. A massive thank you to Charlie and his team for everything.

So much more than we could have hoped for!

'Our wedding at Thursford was so much more than we could have hoped for. All of the staff were amazing right from our first viewing, nothing was too much trouble, everything went smoothly and we didn't have to worry about a thing. Everything we wanted was taken care of.. We hadn't seen the garden all lit up at night before so it was magical for us to see too as well as our guests. Lots of our guests said it was the best wedding they had been to! We can't thank you enough for such a perfect day!'

supremely professional
Venue Service

By Neil Didsbury, on 28 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 24 Jun 2017

Charlie and his team at Thursford Garden Pavillion were supremely professional and helped to make our wedding day in June 2017 so special. From our initial meeting through to the day itself, the team were fantastic at communicating with us. We had a number of small detail changes in the run up to the day itself and Charlie was very accommodating to these. So many friends and family commented on the day how amazing the venue was and that the carousel rides had lent a fairytale edge to proceedings. The lighting in the trees outside the Pavillion in the evening were sensational and served to enhance the ambience inside. Normally tables have to be cleared away at wedding receptions I have been to to make room for a make shift dance floor, but at Thursford they have a beautiful dedicated dance floor with fantastic lighting again. Charlie showed great attention to detail, and when we arrived in our wedding car we were greeted by him personally with drinks and within 60 seconds all our guests were led to the funfair rides which were lit up and working. Everything ran so smoothly, leaving us to just enjoy the day. If you want the perfect wedding venue in Norfolk, and a team who will ensure your day goes without a hitch I would unreservedly recommend the team at Thursford Garden Pavillion. Thank you so much Charlie and the team for making our day so special. Neil & Crystal

We had the most amazing day and made some very special memories with a great bunch of people. We cannot thank Charlie enough for his involvement; he really made it such a special day for us. The whole team looked after our guests so well and I have had nothing but positive comments not only about the venue which is spectacular but about Charlie and his team.

Perfect in Every Way

By Mathew, on 10 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Feb 2017

We would just like to say a massive thank you to the Thursford Garden Pavilion team for an amazing Wedding. You were all very helpful and dealt with all our needs perfectly and in a very professional and friendly way, you all made the whole day run very smoothly and gave us the perfect venue and setting for our wedding. We honestly had an awesome day and we are 100% sure we made the right choice in choosing the Thursford Garden Pavilion for our wedding day. Once again thank you for all your help and leading up to the wedding and on the day itself. We will definitely be coming back to Thursford in the future with the girls and maybe even as guests at another wedding.

Best day of our lives
Venue Service

By Hanna, on 31 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Oct 2016

Thursford is a spectacular venue and and was the perfect location to get married. Charlie was great to work with in the lead up to the big day and always available to answer any questions (of which I had many!). We also found that our other suppliers had no problems with making arrangements at Thursford which meant no additional stress for us. It was great to have access the day before the wedding to ensure that everything was set up and ready and we were pleasantly surprised to find a number of extra finishing touches that Charlie thought would add that little bit more to the venue. The day itself could not have run any more smoothly – Charlie was always there to ensure everything was running to schedule and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. He was also very good at liaising with other members of the wedding party when we were busy and everyone found him to be approachable and accommodating. Nothing that was asked of him was too much! A number of our guests hadn’t been to Thursford before and couldn’t believe how gorgeous everything looked. It was particularly stunning for our evening guests who arrived after dark and got the full impact of the lights! It looked magical and our photographer got many shots that really captured the mood. We also had a great time on the carousel and gondola rides which were a real highlight of the day – many of our guests had been looking forward to these in particular and were not disappointed! All in all we would not have changed a thing about our wedding day as it really was perfect and I have no doubt that Thursford and Charlie in particular were big contributing factors!

Immaculate grounds and vintage rides
Venue Service

By Kay, on 28 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 11 Jun 2016

I honestly don't know where to begin with praising the amazing staff and explaining just how truly perfect our wedding day was. We booked to have our reception at the Thursford Garden Pavilion just over two years from the date and from the moment we signed our contracts the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Being quite a perfectionist myself I knew very quickly exactly how we wanted our wedding and had a certain vision in my mind. I cannot praise Charlie, Emma and Chris enough for all their help, advice and replying to my many emails and phone calls. They were constantly polite and efficient and really could not do enough for us. Emma & Chris were absolutely brilliant the day before the wedding and went through everything with us. We felt more than comfortable to leave everything in their capable hands, nothing on the day was too much trouble. We viewed many venues before picking ’ THE ONE ’ it blew us away with its old English charm and not forgetting the Carousel which was a hit with young and old, their smiles told us everything. The day was truly amazing, everything ran just like clockwork. All our guests commented on the uniqueness of the venue and that they have never been to a wedding like ours before, a true fairy tale.

Truly unique
Venue Service

By Stuart, on 28 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 23 Apr 2016

Thank you so much to Charlie and the team for making our special day perfect. From our meetings with Charlie at the planning stage to the day itself everything ran so incredibly smoothly, and that is a testament to him and the staff around him. Nothing was too much trouble, and they went above and beyond to be of assistance. All the guests commented how magical a venue it was, with several now keen to book it themselves.

Perfect pictures
Venue Service

By Nick, on 26 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 10 Apr 2016

It is not every day you get to shoot at a brand new wedding venue, but this year was the first time I have been able to capture a wedding at the Thursford collection, or as its to be known to the wedding industry The Garden Pavilion. It certainly looks as though it could be one of the top wedding venues in North Norfolk. Brides and Grooms love to be unique and this is the perfect place for that.. Thursford just oozes unique features including its own steam collection and carousel. Away from the location of the Christmas shows sits The Garden Pavilion a wonderful marquee brimming with modern touches and still maintaining the classic wedding feel couples love. Becky and Ryan unfortunately were unable to get married in the secret garden due to the rain the night before, however Thursford offers a stunning old barn ceremony room as an alternative and it does not disappoint. The raised floor at the front of the barn allows all the guests a perfect view of the service. This was a fabulous wedding with two people very much in love everyone had an amazing day in a wonderful location.

First class service
Venue Service

By Brenda, on 26 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 03 Oct 2015

From the moment we booked the venue nothing was too much trouble and on the day it was absolutely perfect. A wonderful wonderful day. So many people have been in contact with me to say how much they enjoyed themselves. I thought the Barn looked beautiful for the ceremony and as we walked out afterwards to the sounds of the organs playing it was magical. I have never seen so many happy smiling faces as I did of the guests in all their finery riding the Gondola and Carousel. The Pavilion was perfect for the large number of guests that we had and with sixteen tables we still had such a lot of space. How magical did it look outside in the evening with the lights in the trees. The final surprise for everybody was when the curtains opened for Tina and Andrew's first dance. I think I speak for everybody when I say we had a truly wonderful, amazing and happy day. Many thanks once again
