5 stars still isnt enough
Venue Service

By Leeanne Harrison, on 15 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2018

5* still isn’t enough for this amazing wedding venue, what can we say everything was absolutely perfect and our special day ran so smoothly all because of you Ian and Becca and your staff that work here we can’t Thankyou all enough. The whole day Ian and Becca were on hand making sure we were okay, bringing tea and coffee to our room whilst getting ready, making sure we knew the run through of the day and where to go when, turning the room around in between the events of the day, and being on hand for anything extra we needed. The cleanliness of the venue was excellent and the food delicious. Becca you are an amazing woman and your help and support gave us the best day of our lives and memories we will treasure forever, can’t wait to come back next year!! Happy smiles all round love the new Mr and Mrs Harrison xxx

Nothing was ever too much trouble
Venue Service

By Amy Patterson, on 15 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Apr 2018

We got married at the Old Rectory on 21st April. Becky, the wedding planner was amazing! Nothing was ever too much trouble and she did everything to help us. Becky made the whole wedding planning process a dream! On the day itself we were blown away with the help and support of all the staff. Ian was amazing at keeping us informed of what was coming up next and the plan for the day. Everyone commented on how good the food was, the DJ was amazing, and the dance floor was busy all night. We can’t recommend the Old Rectory enough!

Thank you so much for everything you did for us to make our day so special. Everything went perfectly and all the staff were more than willing to sort things out for us. The whole venue looked beautiful just as we had envisaged.

The Groom and I loved it so much....
Venue Service

By Mark and Stacy Daniels, on 15 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Apr 2017

Wow...what a perfect venue with fantastic staff who couldn't be more helpful. We had our wedding here on the 7th April and the ladies of the bridal party (&grandad) stayed over from the evening before and nothing was too much trouble. The food on the day was amazing as were the full english breakfasts each morning. We had all 16 rooms booked out on the day of the wedding and the staff were really accomodating for those needing early check in times. The groom and I loved it so much we booked an extra night. We will definently be back to see you all again. Many thanks, Stacey and Mark Daniels. X x x 1 Comment

Excellent Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Hampton, on 12 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 23 Oct 2016

We had a truly perfect and magical wedding day at this wonderful venue. We want to give a massive thank you to Ian and his team for all the hard work they put in on our wedding day. Ian helped us to decorate the venue on the morning of our wedding and his team took the decorations down on the next day. The wedding day ran smoothly and nothing was too much trouble for the venue or the staff. The wedding breakfast tables were set up exactly as we asked. The staff were very friendly and helpful, always having smiles on their faces. Ian regularly checked in with us on the day, to check that everything was ok. The food was excellent and our guests rated it very highly. The gift we received from you was a lovely surprise and a special memento of our wedding day. Having the use of the deluxe room for free for the night with bed and breakfast was an added bonus. We highly recommend this venue to anyone getting married.

Amazing Wedding Reception
Venue Service

By Kim and Tim Amies, on 20 Aug 2014

Thank you so much for giving us the most amazing wedding reception. Everyone has commented on how well organised it all was and how the food was fantastic - they all loved your bow tie as well Ian. We know we would not have had such a great day if it had not been for all the hard work put in by all the staff. You really are a fantastic team. Extra special thanks to Beccy for taking such great care of us from the moment we came in last snowy February.

We got married at the Old Rectory on September 1st 2012. They gave us an amazing day. From allowing some of our guests to check in early to the end of the great disco I could not fault Ian, Becky and the team at all. The food was divine, service wonderful and all staff were discreet and efficient. I would absolutely recommed the Old Rectory as a venue to anyone lookig to get married in Norfolk.
