The Normans is a lovely North Yorkshire wedding venue situated just outside the village of Bilbrough, only a 20-minute drive from York and 35 minutes from Leeds city centre. This 18th-century farm venue is the epitome of ‘country cool.’ Husband-wife team Oliver and Laura Robinson tied the knot at The Normans in 2014. Their wedding was such a wonderful and joyous event that it inspired them to transform part of the farm into a stylish, all-weather event space that perfectly combines rustic farm features and state-of-the-art lighting and design.
Facilities and Capacity
At The Normans, everything centres around the magnificent south-facing Courtyard, which features beautifully manicured lawns, Buxus hedges, a slick central water element, modern integrated seating, and twinkling fairy lights. You and your party can then make your way to the fully licensed Ceremony Barn, where you will find a high-vaulted ceiling supported by handsome wooden trusses, exposed-brick walls, and a cascading curtain of fairy lights. After the ceremony, you can take some time to sit, chat, and relax in the quirky Cow Stalls or enjoy a quick drink in the Tack Room Bar before adjourning to the Grain Shed to dine and dance the night away. The chic Normans Cottage, situated just a few steps from the wedding venue, is the perfect bolthole for you and your new spouse to relax and enjoy your first night as a married couple. South View by The Normans, located in the nearby village of Askham Richard, is part of The Normans’ property portfolio and affords excellent overnight accommodation for your guests.
Oliver and Laura know that there are so many factors to consider when planning your big day, and they want to help you out by keeping things as simple as possible. They don’t charge per person because it doesn’t matter to them whether you invite 60 or 140 guests. Instead, they offer one exclusive use package that includes personal and professional planning support and day-of coordination services, tables and chairs, ambient lighting across the venue, an optional pop-up bar, a dance floor, indoor heating, and washroom facilities. Oliver and Laura invite you to get in touch, and they look forward to welcoming you to The Normans.
