Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Hannah Marks
Thank you for looking at Ivy House Country Hotel. I'm so pleased we caught your eye. I would love to show you around the venue in person and am available for viewings most evenings and weekends. There's nothing like getting a feel for a venue in person, photos never do us justice (so I'm told). I can't wait to hear from you.

Thank you
Just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your efforts for Matt and Hayley's wedding on Sunday 23rd September. I know it's not easy organising the wedding with the restrictions in place but we thought all the staff were excellent and really made the day special.

A lovely day.
Our day was lovely, Ivy house has really lovely grounds which allows for some great pictures. The food, in our case a buffet, was amazing and everyone enjoyed it.

Can’t recommend Ivy House enough
Can’t recommend Ivy house enough. Got married there on Thursday and, in spite of Covid restrictions, and while adhering to them, gave us the best wedding possible. Staff were absolutely amazing and so helpful. Grounds are stunning and spacious

We had an amazing day, which ran smoothly thanks
We were invited to my friend’s wedding at Ivy House in September 2018, after having our little girl a few month prior, and we said at the time what a lovely venue this would be for a wedding and would suit the type of day we wanted. My mum then spotted an offer in the paper for a deal for getting married on Sundays or midweek, which prompted us to enquire. When the August bank Holiday Sunday was free and included in the deal we decided to book the wedding and plan it all in 10 months. I am so glad we did and Ivy House really delivered for us. We had an amazing day, which ran smoothly thanks to all of the staff. A lot of the guests were from Norwich so had not heard about the venue and all were pleasantly surprised when they found it at the end of the lane and have commented to us how nice it was.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

I've witnessed some great weddings, do I have to choose just one? It would be my first wedding working in my role as wedding coordinator, we hosted a grand wedding with over 140 guests and a high tea to rival the Ritz!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

When it comes to venue hunting don't be afraid to ask for something if it's not being offered. When it comes to food in particular a lot of venues will be happy to accommodate your special requests.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We had a father of the bride organise some surprise singing waiters and they went down a storm.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Romantic, picturesque, quiet, affordable, special

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The summerhouse overlooking the water is my favourite photo spot. I've seen it dressed up with fairy lights and it looks magical at night.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We haven't yet!

What’s your favourite canapé?

My favourite would have to be the honey mustard sausage and mash

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

You can't beat a salty bacon roll to soak up all of the alcohol

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our 18th original barn filled with natural light, you don't expect one of those in most hotels!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

I'm most proud of our service, unlike a big chain, we're a small independent business that treats every wedding like it's our first and last.
