About The Normans

The Normans wedding venue epitomises ‘country cool’. Brought to you by husband-wife team Oliver and Laura Robinson, it's set on an 18th-century farm, located in pretty North Yorkshire.

Open last year, the venue centres upon an achingly stylish, south-facing courtyard which is flanked by a rustic Georgian barn, a unique marquee - housed in an original farm building - and imaginatively renovated Cow Stalls.

Step into The Courtyard to mingle around a central water feature and amidst rich greenery and twinkling lights. Say 'I do' in our fully licensed Ceremony Barn, against a backdrop of exposed brickwork, high vaulted ceilings and cascading fairylights. Later, take time out in our cool and quirky Cow Stalls - the ultimate country hang out - or walk through magnificent double doors into our striking marquee - complete with reclaimed wood features - to dine, drink and dance the night away.

In short: The Normans is the ultimate pick for a cutting-edge country wedding!

    Wow. Wow. Wow!!!

    Oliver, Sharon and the fantastic Normans team cannot be faulted. It’s hard to try and find the right words to describe how fantastic the day was.

    From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. From the very first glimpse of the venue many years ago to the wedding day, you were all amazing and eclipsed our expectations throughout the difficulties of rearrangement again and again.

    We certainly partied. It was a day that we’ll never forget.

    The Gibsons - July 2021

    Wow, wow, wow just wow.
    We fell in love with The Normans when we saw the venue for the first time in April 2019. We cancelled the rest of our viewings with other venues as it was “the one”. It’s hard to describe the emotions we felt when we booked The Normans but I guess it’s a little like buying a home, when you walk in and it feels right you just know.
    I think anyone can see from any photographs of The Normans that it is a stunning space to have your wedding ceremony and celebrations but with The Normans you are getting so much more than a beautiful venue, you are getting a family run business with a team of couples that are totally and utterly devoted to making every wedding day they host perfect and unique to each couple.
    Of course, when we booked in 2019, we were blissfully unaware that we were about to experience a global pandemic…. But my goodness me were we grateful that we had the Normans Team to support us through planning a wedding through the challenging and uncertain times. They allowed us to make contingency plans for every scenario and ensured us that whatever we were faced with they would find a way to make it the wedding of our dreams emotionally and financially – so for this reassurance – THANK YOU.
    Now – being the two luckiest people in the world, we did not need any contingency plans and sitting tight and praying for our date to go ahead as planned in summer 2021 paid off! (free of charge they even threw in the hottest day of they year for us!!!!)
    When we initially booked The Normans, Oliver and Sharon explained that they pride themselves on the “flow” of the day – and yes it flowed. Lots of our guests have complimented us on how the day flowed and we feel guilty taking the compliments as this is all down to the team at The Normans and their efficient planning and experience!
    One of our guests said, “when you go to a wedding, there is always a “lull” period where people don’t know what to do with themselves – this just didn’t happen at your wedding, it was amazing, and the day just went so fast”.
    We could talk forever on how happy we were with our wedding day but are so grateful for the choice we made to book you.
    Words of advice – if you are looking at venues, you need to look no further – The Normans will do you proud.
    Thank you, Oliver & Laura, Sharron & Dave (and Amanda for the beautiful Cottage) – from the day we booked, each time we have visited, the pop-up Hogg and Apple restaurant during the pandemic, all the zoom calls and of course – The Wedding weekend.

    We have loved it all.
    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
    Emily & Sam (Mr & Mrs Gibson!)

    An absolutely stunning venue and incredible team behind it!

    The Normans was the first venue we looked around and no other venue compared! It is absolutely stunning and by no means ‘just another barn’. Even better, it has the most incredible and enthusiastic team of hosts behind it who looked after us the whole way through our wedding planning experience; they really love what they do. We (as many other couples did and still do) had the added stress of COVID to navigate but the Normans were extremely accommodating and supportive throughout, putting us at ease and always being on hand for a chat. The flow and feel of the venue is what we loved most. It allowed for a relaxed atmosphere but with the most beautiful, natural, rustic decor; the waterfall lights are even more impressive in real life! Another major tick box for us was the accessibility of the venue with one of our close family members in a wheelchair. Our guests have not stopped complimenting the venue we picked and we all had an absolute blast. We highly recommend the Normans and cannot thank them enough for making our special day surpass all expectations. Jo and Josh xx
