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.

Godwick was the perfect venue for our wedding!
27th October 2018 Zita and Steve - Godwick was the perfect venue for our wedding - we had the most magical day! Not only is it absolutely stunning, the team are a dream to work with, nothing is too much trouble. Having the accommodation in the House was the icing on the cake and really added to making a weekend of it. The Barn was the perfect size for our guests - even though it was raining on the day, it made no difference. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and a great time was had by all.

Thank you Godwick team!!
24/10/2018 Rebecca and Tad - We had our wedding reception at Godwick last week and I couldn't recommend a better place to get hitched. Not only is the venue absolutely stunning (including the amazing accommodation, which offer so much more than the cost would imply) but Kevin and the Godwick team are so caring, thoughtful and organised and they do everything they can to make your day run as smoothly as possible. There aren't enough words to express our gratitude to Godwick. There is no better wedding venue in Norfolk, it is the whole package. Thank you Godwick team!!

Godwick Great Barn is such a beautiful venue.
20.10.18 Mark and Fiona Bateman - Godwick Great Barn is such a beautiful building and exactly what we were looking for. The red bricks, ceiling height and lighting creates an amazing atmosphere and our guests haven’t stopped talking about our day. Kevin has been such a fantastic support throughout our planning and always remained kind, helpful and reassuring. We hired Godwick Hall for our wedding too which was the perfect place to share the night before, morning of and morning after our wedding with our nearest and dearest. We have no hesitation in recommending Godwick Hall and Great Barn to anyone. Perfect!

Godwick barn is a truly beautiful venue
October 6th, 2018. Nicky and Ed - Godwick barn is a truly beautiful venue to get married in. We had a brilliant day and a fantastic experience from the moment we were first shown around the venue. The team and in particular Kevin are wonderful. Thank you very much for helping to take so much stress out of the planning stages and helping to make the day even more enjoyable.

Godwick barn and the team are a dream!
Wednesday 15th August 2018 Lorna and Martin - Godwick barn and the team are a dream to work with. Absolute professionalism from beginning to end. The team are incredibly organised and conversations between ourselves and staff were extremely helpful and reassuring. As we were both working full time throughout the planning stage without any allocated wedding planner we felt extremely lucky to have Kevin to liaise with regarding the organisation, structure and flow of our big day, he really is a top man and everything ran so smoothly. If you choose Godwick barn as your wedding venue, without doubt you’ll have the BEST experience. Thank you so so so much!

Amazing!
I don't think there are enough words I can use to describe how incredible this venue really is. We had planned to see a few different venues but as soon as we walked in we knew Godwick was the one for us. The setting is just gorgeous and is a blank canvas with plenty of scope for creativity. We loved that we were able to get married outside over looking the Godwick ruins, and the hay bales and tractor ride gave it that little extra Norfolk touch we wanted our guests to experience. As well as the barn we hired the hall and the three shepherds huts and we are so glad we did. The hall is amazing with a swimming pool and a games room. We had so much fun setting up on the Tuesday and going back to the hall all spending time together. It was like a mini holiday and a really special part of our wedding. The shepherds huts are so beautiful. We chose to stay in one on the night of the wedding and waking up as mr and Mrs to that gorgeous view was amazing. Another thing that makes Godwick such a great venue is the staff. Kevin, Amy, Senga and team are so passionate about their venue and really can't do enough for you. Kevin was always happy to answer emails with silly questions and show us around the venue whenever we wanted to see it. Amy was an absolute star on the day before and day of our wedding. She really put me at ease and made sure everything ran smoothly. It also helps that they are both such lovely people. Having a consultation with penny of the little lending company was invaluable! We got some great ideas from her and ended up hiring quite a lot of her collection. Godwick was the best choice we ever made! It was the best day of our lives and we really can't thank you all enough for everything you did for us! Lucy and Simon

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 is your No. 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 Wendy Hurrell 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!
