how it works
We know just how much there is to think about when planning a wedding, which is why we keep things simple by offering a straightforward pricing structure.
We don't charge per person, since it makes no difference to us whether you invite 60 or 130 guests! Instead, we offer one price package for exclusive use of the entire venue, which consists of: Ceremony Barn, Courtyard, Grain Shed and Cow Stalls, and all its amenities. These include: power, ambient lighting across the venue, heating in all of the buildings, washroom facilities, dance floor, stage for the band, and tables and chairs (for both your ceremony and dining).
See What's Included (below) for further details.
Once you book with us, we ensure that you enjoy every aspect of your wedding here at The Normans - from the planning and preparations, to setting up on the day before, to the wedding day itself.
We make a point of offering personal and professional assistance in the build-up to your wedding - just call or email us with your questions (you'll have a lot!) and we get back to you with useful tips and guidance to help you on your way!
When your Big Day finally arrives, you have the day before to set up and make the venue your own, so there's no rush or no stress!
On the day, one of The Normans team will be onsite to ensure everything runs smoothly. This includes liaising with your suppliers, welcoming guests and looking after the bride and groom, so you don't have anything to worry about - other than having a good time!
For 2019, 2020 & 2021 prices and a list of available dates, please email us.
