Thursford Garden Pavilion , Norfolk

Just a few miles from the North Norfolk coast lies the village of Thursford, which is home to this wonderfully contemporary pavilion. Its full-length windows and draped ceiling create a bright and intimate setting, making it one of the most beautiful wedding venues in Norfolk.  The Garden Pavilion's neutral interior makes it perfect for any colour scheme or decoration and allows you to make the place truly your own, in any style that you wish.

The Garden Pavilion at Thursford makes the most of its wonderful surroundings when it comes to locations to tie the knot. Choose from two idyllic outdoor spots, where you can exchange your vows al fresco; the manicured lawn at the front of the pavilion or the delightful private wedding garden, which provides a secluded and intimate place to say ‘I do'. Should the weather take a turn for the worse, there are a further three indoor locations which can be used for a unique and unforgettable civil ceremony. The Old Farm Barn provides a rustic setting that's full of character while the Garden Pavilion offers contemporary and modern. For something slightly different, tie the knot in the main museum building just a few steps from the pavilion. It's an incredible setting that's home to a fantastic collection of lovingly restored fairground rides that provide a wealth of amazing wedding photo opportunities.

If you're looking for a religious ceremony instead, then the Church of St Andrew in Thursford is the ideal setting. This Grade II Listed church is nestled within the Norfolk countryside and is just minutes from the Garden Pavilion.

There's a great choice of locations for your drinks reception too, and couples can enjoy a glass of bubbly in practically any part of the venue, indoor or out. Perhaps most exciting though is inside the museum, where guests can take a spin on the vintage gondola and carousel rides while toasting your good health. It will certainly create a moment that your friends and family won't forget in a hurry!

Return to the Garden Pavilion for your wedding breakfast and celebrate in style in this impressive marquee wedding venue. There's plenty of space for up to 230 guests for your wedding breakfast with more room for extra people afterwards. Decorate as you wish and rest assured that everything else you could need is already included in the venue price. Cake tables, dance floor, sound system and lighting, heating and the cake stand and knife all come as standard, so you can just concentrate on holding the perfect wedding celebration.

The Garden Pavilion at Thursford does not currently have accommodation, although there are plans underway to add rooms to the venue in 2017. The venue has a great relationship with a number of country B&Bs and larger hotels and will happily be able to recommend the perfect place for you and your guests to stay.

Despite its tranquil and rural setting, The Garden Pavilion at Thursford is very easy to get to. It's just a mile off the A418 and lies halfway between Fakenham and Holt. It's only 45 minutes from Norwich too, making it a delightful rural escape from the city.
