Full Description
  • A truly unique 450 year old Grade II listed barn wedding and event venue in Norfolk, combining history and magnificence with a wonderful rural setting. Licensed for wedding ceremonies, so you can hold your whole day at Godwick. Contemporary facilities, posh loos, modern kitchen and reception area with a bespoke bar. A large entertaining space that can seat up to 160. The barn has huge oak beams and high pitched roof which are amazing to look at, but also result in great acoustics for music and entertainment. A “blank canvas” venue that can be tailored to suit your own requirements with plenty of outside space for entertaining, garden games and outside ceremonies. We offer three day hire packages with the wedding on the Saturday or a cheaper midweek option on a Wednesday. Arrive the day before to add your design flair and customise the venue. Party hard on your wedding day, safe in the hands that our experienced team will look after you. Leave the day after once you have dusted off the hangover and cleared your stuff away. We have a a choice of ceremony locations inside the Barn or opt for an outside duo-ceremony. On site we have luxurious accommodation for upto 22 guests at nearby Godwick Hall, with seven fabulously different bedrooms and three Shepherd’s Huts in the Hall grounds. Camping pitches are available at Godwick Great Barn for the wedding night. We offer our own in-house Godwick bar or you can supply your own alchohol with no corkage charge. You can choose your own caterers and we will recommend you a whole host of local suppliers that we know and love and trust at Godwick. Flexibility and a professional and friendly service are our key mantras, so we encourage you to design your own wedding with us on hand to help you along the way. Our wonderful outside spaces and ancient landscape provide a host of stunning photo opportunities. Godwick has never been an ordinary venue. Quirky, eccentric, but always wonderfully glorious.

FAQ

Ask a question
Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Mine! No but seriously we have had loads of amazing weddings at Godwick, but how could I not say my own. We really did have an amazing autumn wedding in October 2015. We wanted to have a big old fashioned knees up, with a relaxed and informal atmosphere. I had some large rustic trestle tables made and these provided a fabulous communal banquet with large sharing platters and copious amounts of wine. We had great live music throughout the day, a wonderful ceremony, a big banquet dinner and then loads of dancing to a fabulous band, all set in my own wedding venue with all my family friends, what more could you want.
What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
I'm a big believer in working out what your theme is and how you want your day to feel, what will the vibe be like? For us, we spent a long time figuring out our theme, which was based around a strong autumnal colour pallette, and a rustic, country feel with lots of tweeds and textures. We combined these with our desire to create a relaxed and informal event and ensured that our theme ran through the whole event from the stationary we had designed to the clothes we wore, to the styling of the venue and even the menu itself. I think this really helps an event hang together and the guests get a real sense of what your wedding is about. Of course, you need to choose a great venue, and one like Godwick that is flexible and customisable!!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
We have had some wonderful, creative and stunning wedding arches for outside ceremonies, I love these.
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Quirky, awesome, rustic, majestic, flexible
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
The ruins of Godwick All Saints provide an amazing back drop to any wedding photography.
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
Yes we have had a few well known faces as guests, including Ireland rugby captain Rory Best. BBC London weather girl and presenter Chloe Horrell also got married at Godwick and we have a super famous social media star getting hitched with us this summer, but as always we would never reveal their name, until after their wedding of course!
What is your venue's most unique feature?
We have a few unique features, but I guess our own vintage tractor, which acts as bridal transport from Godwick Hall to the Great Barn and takes couples to the ruins for photos is pretty unique. The venue itself is one of a kind and we love it for that.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
My team are an amazingly hard working bunch who are as passionate about Godwick as I am!
