Gorgeous and picturesque. Charming and enchanting. Understated, quirky and coated in luxury. Elegant, exclusive and utterly extraordinary. The Thursford Garden Pavilion is nothing shy of stunning, a wedding venue that promises to make your soul flutter, heart skip a beat, eyes fizz as they try and hold onto every dazzling detail and, above all else, give your big day the most beautiful backdrop ever imagined.
Dancing around our magnificent all-white pavilion, we are there to make every big day unforgettable, from gorgeous civil ceremonies to wow-factor wedding receptions. It's what makes us rare. And we are rare. The kind of rare that makes wishes come true, whether you want to dance the night away with 200 seated guests in our spacious, airy and lavish Pavilion or enjoy the romantic intimacy in a smaller celebration as you enjoy the gorgeously unassuming style of our Old Farm Barn.
Our Garden pavilion, hidden in the beating heart of North Norfolk, is that moment of magic you've been looking for, that wedding venue that's truly perfect for your big day - unique & special
Whether you host your whole day at The Garden Pavilion (oh, yeah, we're fully licensed for civil weddings) or you simply want a spectacular venue for your wedding reception, the kind that will have your guests letting out a collective "awwwwww" from the second they arrive to the moment they wobble into a Hackney carriage, we have everything to accommodate all your needs.
And at the centre of it all is our stunning pavilion with floor-to-ceiling views across our landscape gardens and almost endless grounds, and you can style every part of it as you so please. Grandiose and magnificent, classic and chic, or meek, modest and unassuming - you can style our venue as you wish. Think of the Garden Pavilion as a blank canvas, perfect for your wedding reception.
When it comes to enjoying your big day, the Garden Pavilion is exclusively yours, offering you the most flexible venue from which to host your wedding.
Not only is it stunning to stare at, our Pavilion also has its own entrance for your wedding, as well as dedicated access points for both catering staff and your entertainment.
Of course, our Garden Pavilion is part of the world-famous Thursford Spectacular, an experience that's truly unique, a phenomenon that's enraptured audiences for years and years, decades even, entertaining people and forever delivering the unexpected.
And it's all been possible because of our attention to detail. It's what we pride ourselves on. The little things that make a huuuuge difference. The little moments that capture the eye and draws out a smile - one that won't fade for days and weeks. As a result, we have a ‘little black book’ of heart-stirring entertainers, feet-tapping musicians, wow-factor magicians and the sort of live bands that will have you and your guests dancing, singing, laughing and more.
We're Thursford. This is what we do. We know how to make your wedding reception dazzle, dance, swirl and swing like nowhere else.
Set in the beating heart of beautiful landscaped gardens, our Garden Pavilion is a treasure chest surrounded by immaculate lawns and flowering borders. But these panoramic views aren't there to be enjoyed with your eyes only. No way. Our outdoor spaces are there for you and your guests to enjoy, relax in and dance through. They're the perfect al fresco spot for your reception drinks, delicious finger foods, midnight steadiers from a fancy food, enjoy fresh Italian gelato from our our traditional parlour, sip from flutes full of champagne and dance beneath the stars as a fireworks fill the velvet sky with a bang, pop, wow.
But that's not all.
We also have a cottage-style garden that's quintessentially English and doused in delicate features: a rose arch, romantic benches, a cobbled water fountain and country cottage flowers that will make you clutch your heart with both hands. It's that little place of peace and tranquility, that perfect backdrop for your intimate and romantic wedding photos.
Yet it's our outdoor play area that's the piece de resistance; that unsung hero of child-friendly weddings where your little ones can entertain themselves with ear to ear smiles, forever seen across the lawns of the Garden Pavilion.
No wedding is complete without great food and wine, whatever your style, requirements or budget. It's the disarming sound of wine sloshing from bottle to glass and seeing food land at your seat so drop-dead delicious it could break Instagram. It's what makes a wedding a wedding - and our recommended suppliers can offer you exactly that, tailoring their menus to meet your wants, needs and budget.
