Spectacular Wedding Day

I cannot thank everyone at the Norfolk mead enough for making our wedding last Friday spectacular. Thank-you to Victoria in events who not only made sure the day ran seamlessly, but for attending to every email and phone call so promptly over the last 15 months of planning our wedding. Another special thanks to Alex and joe for looking after my Every need in the evening, you guys were awesome. The food was absolutely amazing! Thank you for having both Jonathan and I (along with my rowdy Australian bunch), we will definitely be back to celebrate our first anniversary next year!

Perfect day

My wife and I were married at this picturesque Venue on 19/07/19.
Both of the wedding planners (Victoria & Francesca) were so passionate about giving us the most amazing experience.
We opted for the gourmet BBQ wedding meal... maybe a dubious choice for a wedding meal or maybe not.
Anna the head chef/owner lived up to her reputation... from taster menu to breakfast the day after our wedding. Her kitchen team 100% delivered..
The Norfolk Mead as a wedding venue is the complete package. Accommodating, personnel and professional

Our Wedding Day at The Norfolk Mead

Thank you for such an amazing wedding day!

On your wedding day the biggest fear is that something won't go to plan, but with the incredible team at the Nofolk Mead, you were sure everything would go off without a hitch.

All of our guests were amazed by the venue. We looked at 9 venues before making a decision and we definitely made the right one.

Food - Some of the best you'll have in Norfolk. Go and try it!
Service - Second to none! Nothing was too much trouble.
Venue - We wanted something modern and well maintained and boy did we find it!
Events - Victoria was our events manger for the day and held our hand prior to the wedding. She one of the most organised people we've ever met without being bossy and still being flexible.

I think many of our guests will return to one of Norfolk's hidden gems!

Thank you for everything

Jon and Zowies Wedding

Where do I begin with this beautiful period building surrounded by stunning well kept grounds. My son got married on Fri 28th Sept, and all the wedding party,family and friends stayed at the norfolk mead.
Firstly a big thank you to all members off staff who made our stay so pleasurable, who went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect on the day.
All food that was served both in the hotel and at the wedding was of a very high standard.
We stayed in the samphire room which was very spacious and immaculate with a lovely view of the gardens. This beautiful hotel should definitely be a 5 star.
Just staying or using for a wedding venue I would highly recommended
Keep up the great work, thanks again

Great Wedding Venue

We had our wedding here in Sept 2018 and had such a lovely day. Victoria and Francesca the event coordinators were brilliant, super flexible with our requests and the team on the day gave us excellent service. The day ran like a well oiled machine and everything was taken care of, we didn't have any worries.
We chose The Norfolk Mead as we love the blend of the building's old architecture with modern twist of furnishings, decor and the wedding venue.
All the rooms are beautifully decorated and the guests that stayed the night of and before loved them too. I would absolutely recommend future brides to use one of the cottages to get ready in, that way you have plenty of room for make-up, hair, bridesmaids, photographers etc. Each one of our guests was taken by one of the hotel team to their room to ensure they had everything they needed, which is a lovely touch.
The food is really of the highest quality and just fabulous! We've eaten in the restaurant a few times previously and being very honest we'd set our expectations a little lower for the wedding breakfast meal (for no particular reason), but we were pleasantly surprised when our wedding breakfast food was of the exact same standard. Every one of our guests commented on how delicious everything.
We're really grateful to the team, the chef and everyone else involved for working so hard and making the whole day effortless for us as a couple. Special thanks to Victoria for all your efforts, you rocked it! Thank you

Our Perfect Wedding Venue

Since our 1st visit to the Norfolk Mead in March 2017, we have returned several times and most recently held our wedding there. it is located down a leafy lane running alongside the church in Coltishall and cannot be seen from the main road so ensures privacy. We have always received an exceptionally high level of service from all staff. If you are considering hosting your wedding or any other events there we would definitely recommend the venue. The food in terms of quality, portion size and presentation is excellent. Having stayed in both the Chanterelle and Mulberry suite the furnishings are luxurious, stylish and comfortable. whilst there we treated ourselves to a number of spa treatment which were amazing. We will no doubt be returning to celebrate special occasions in the future. In particular we would like to thank our wedding coordinators Victoria and Francesca who went above and beyond to make our day one to remember for all the right reasons.

The Best Day Of Our Lives

I am not one to say much unless I have received exceptional service but I genuinely felt that how we were looked after and their attention to detail needed recognition of some note. Where to start. Well firstly I have to acknowledge our two wedding coordinators Francesca and Victoria. Me being a man assumed I had hired a venue and paid for some food and drink. To my utmost surprise and eternal gratitude Victoria on the day was way more than a coordinator. She provided good counsel and advice but more importantly her steely determination to make sure everything went perfectly was a credit to her and the Norfolk Mead. I must have thanked her 20 times on the day but at least now I can put it in writing as a permanent record. All the staff in fact were polite, professional and seemed to take genuine pride in what they were doing and the significance it held for our families. Secondly the food. I am a bit of a foodie and I can say without hesitation that I am astounded at the quality and the consistency that the kitchen provided us during the day. Thirdly the accommodation. This is a beautifully presented boutique hotel and the rooms are very much reflective of that. Our wedding suite was a perfect example of modernity with stylish finishes. Breakfast in the morning was like the food we had been served the previous day and all our guests remarked on how wonderful and idyllic the venue had been. We will be going back for anniversaries. Thank you The Norfolk Mead and every member of staff that somehow contributed to what I can now safely say was the best day of my life. In short I would highly, thoroughly and unreservedly recommend.

Marvellous wedding day hosted at the Norfolk Mead

Dear Anna, James, Victoria and the whole Norfolk Mead Hotel Team

Thank you all so much for giving Sukey and Kat and all our guests the most amazing wedding day on Friday!
We knew from our previous visit that we were going to have a good time but you exceeded all our high expectations.
We loved having the whole hotel to ourselves on Thursday night and Friday and felt so at home, relaxed and comfortable. Your rooms are wonderful and the setting and peace and quiet amazing.
The food throughout was incredible with everyone saying “the best wedding food ever”. Sukey and Kat are definite foodies so that was really important to them and you really delivered.
A special thank you to Victoria who organised and marshalled everything so well. Everyone loved the staggered arrival of the bridal party across the walled garden in particular! Victoria was very calm at all times and kept us calm too as a result.
All the team were fantastic during the reception and kept enthusiastically circulating with food and drink throughout.
You all made it a day to remember and, in Sukey and Kat’s view, the best day of their lives!
Thank you so much. We are so glad we chose the Norfolk Mead.

Our wedding day 02.08.2019

My husband and I got married at the Norfolk mead hotel on 02.08.2019. Absolutely amazing. We couldn’t of asked for more. Over 18 months of planning and they couldn’t of done more for us. From the bar staff, to chefs to housekeepers to our fabulous wedding planners Victoria and Francesca. We had the most magical day and we are so grateful to the Norfolk mead for making our wedding day so special. The venue is stunning and the rooms are amazing. Our family and friends were just as blown away as we were. Highly recommend anyone who would like to stay here/get married here or even just for a meal or drink. Fabulous ?? We cannot wait to return. thank you to everyone and the Norfolk mead on behalf of my wife and myself, Mr & Mrs Weavers.

The perfect Norfolk wedding venue

I had my wedding at the Norfolk Mead this year and I feel so lucky to have had it at such a gorgeous venue. We are both genuinely lost for words when it comes to describing our wedding day - it was beyond wonderful and so we can't thank everyone there enough.

Everyone working at the Norfolk Mead made it all so easy for us to enjoy the day without worrying about a thing. We've had countless comments from guests telling us how much they enjoyed it, how relaxed it all felt, how gorgeous the venue and the rooms are, and also how friendly and warm all the staff are. The food is also unbelievably tasty!

I know they host a number of weddings and so are incredibly well practised, but they definitely haven't lost any of the intimacy of it and that makes everyone feel so special. Looking back at the photos we wouldn't change a single thing.

We would definitely, 100% recommend the Norfolk Mead - everything is perfect

Fairy tale Wedding 31.08.19

My new wife and I got married at the Norfolk Mead on Saturday 31st August 2019 and it was just perfect.

From the very first meeting we had with Victoria 18 months prior to the big day, we knew we were in good hands! The subsequent meetings we had and the time both Victoria and Francesca spent with us filled us with confidence and put us both at ease.

The day itself was amazing and so well run, everything from our point of view went as it should have done. Our guests were all very impressed with the venue itself and the way it had been presented and they all loved the food and service throughout the day. The whole team at the Mead went above and beyond and couldn't be faulted at all. This includes the team at the front of house when checking our guests in and all of the waiting and bar staff. The rooms at the hotel are all very spacious and well appointed and the beds are amazing!

The Norfolk Mead Hotel and the Garden Room venue where the weddings tale place are a must view for any newly engaged couples who are yet to choose their venue, I assure you that you will fall in love with the place and the people as much as we did :)

Our day was just perfect and the team and the venue were a big part of that. This place will forever hold a special place I our hearts and we will of course be returning to celebrate many anniversaries to come!

We were lucky enough to get married here on the 21st October and could not be happier. The staff were amazing special thanks to Francesca and Victoria who were not only on hand all day but were amazing in the run up to the wedding to and also to Liam who was friendly and helpful to all our guests at reception on both the day before and after the wedding. The location is idyllic and the food out of this world. We cant wait to celebrate our first anniversary here next year xxx

The Perfect Day

My husband and I got married here on Friday and we can't thank the Norfolk Mead enough for giving us such a beautiful day. The staff here are incredible, this goes to the reception staff, housekeeping, the waiters/waitresses, bar staff and the wedding planners they literally can't do enough for you. You will also never have a bad meal here the food is amazing and our friends and family were extremely impressed. In terms of our day we couldn't thank Victoria and Francesca enough (the wedding organisers) for making are day run so smoothly. If you needed anything they were there, nothing was too much trouble and they were just lovely girls to have make our day go perfectly. James and Anna who have the Norfolk Mead should be very proud of their staff and we can't thank you enough for making our wedding day perfect.

A very special place. Go and visit and you'll see.

We had our whole day including our ceremony at The Mead, it was perfect. We spent the night before there too and booked out all of the rooms for the event, which our guests loved. There are plenty of other places in the surrounding area for other guests to stay the night as well, which was extremely helpful as we had guests from far and wide.
It was a breeze from the moment we viewed the place to the morning after when we had our delicious breakfast (seriously, the attention to detail at this place meant even a hung over wedding party were still grinning with delight the next morning-BEST hotel breakfast EVER.)
I’d seen photos of some stunning weddings here, though we wanted to keep things pretty intimate and simple. The venue is super flexible and it’s already very beautiful so all we needed was some centre pieces for decoration which was enough for us,
We had canapés, a buffet (including a tagine and some salmon which everyone was raving about) and some late night snacks, I’m not just being biased as it was my wedding, but people kept saying it’s the best wedding food they’d ever had and lots of them have booked to eat in the restaurant since!
We had a winter wedding and I was a little worried the day may feel grey because of the weather, but the venue is so cosy and attracts lots of light so it wasn’t an issue at all. It was a truly magical day.
The Mead went above and beyond to help us from start to finish-even when we had issues with a cake and some difficulty with flowers, I can’t recommend them enough, go and view it and you’ll agree!
