Full Description
  • Enjoy Champagne and canapes overlooking the lake with romantic formal gardens and celebrate with your friends and family in the rustic and open barn, restored using timber from the original 16th-century estate. At the award-winning Oxnead Hall, you’ll find the perfect mix of heritage, romance, space and seclusion to make your wedding day dreams come true. The impressive Hall and gardens are largely as they were in 1600; think boxy hedges, mazes of shrubbery, gravel paths leading to statement water features and plush plants lining the edge of Oxnead Hall’s very own lake. This remarkable setting recently picked up ‘Wedding Venue Of the Year’ at the Eastern Daily Press Wedding Awards 2017, providing further proof of just how special this stunning hall and barn really is. Today, Oxnead is a family house and on your wedding day, you’ve free reign to glide seamlessly from celebration to celebration. Beside the formal gardens and in front of sprawling woodland is St Michael’s Church, perfect for a traditional ceremony. Alternatively, explore a little further and you’ll find The Orangery. You can just imagine the sweet-smelling fruit wafting through the door of this pretty building once upon a time, with its large windows, stone flooring and white busts perched atop pedestals. The light is just right in here and perfect for professional photographs, much like in The Great Barn, which is a short walk away. Ideal for a vibrant reception party, The Great Barn is grand and spacious, allowing you to put your stamp on it. Hire live entertainment, enjoy a sit-down dinner and toast the speeches here, with The Long Room next door available for a relaxing escape from the main event. When the night draws to a close, climb the stairs to your bridal suite, furnished with a grand four poster bed and plush carpet. Your guests can enjoy equally impressive accommodation in 12 bedrooms on site.

Ask a question
Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
All our weddings have been so different and unique; equally as memorable for a variety of reasons. One wedding this Summer - on the 11th July stands out in our memories. It was Sophie and Utsav's Wedding. The day started at 10am with a traditional Hindu ceremony in the beautiful ornamental maze garden. The ceremony was full of colour, fragrance and tradition - it was beautiful and so interesting to witness. Following this was the traditional civil ceremony overlooking the lake in the tree lined garden. It was clear to see how in love these wonderful people were. It was a privilege to be part of such a special day.
What is your No.1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Enjoy the process! Don't stress over every decision, make a decision and stick to it or you will cause yourself unnecessary heartache. Most important is have no regrets; on the day all your worries will fall into insignificance and it'll be a fantastic day to treasure so make sure you relax and enjoy it and don't worry about everyone else - just think about the two of you.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Every wedding is so different and personal, one particular highlight has to be a couple Frankie and Jon. Jon had always loved Lego and they decided that they would create a unique table plan! Every person was represented by a Lego character and had their own place around a Lego table with their name tag. This was then tied into the cake - one side a traditional formal cake, the other side had a panel of Lego with a Lego bride and groom - fantastic.
