We are Oliver and Laura Robinson: the husband-and-wife team behind The Normans wedding venue (and parents to three-year-old Ivy, baby Violet and a slightly senile pug called Betty).
Our own love story began in Dubai, where we met whilst working as magazine editors before deciding to trade sun, sea and glamour for muddy wellies and country life - moving to Oliver's family farm, The Normans.
We got married at The Normans in December 2014, which is what inspired us to transform it into a cool, country venue!
Since opening our doors in Spring 2016, we've been (pleasantly!) overwhelmed by the number of couples from across the UK - and beyond - wishing to tie the knot here at The Normans.
We now host weddings on a weekly basis - helped by our dedicated Events Manager, the super Sharon Sanders, for whom no wedding-related query is too great or small!
We make a point of not hosting more than one weekday and one weekend wedding per week. We don't want The Normans to become a 'conveyor-belt' for weddings - we want to provide an exclusive setting for couples to make their own.
Besides, The Normans isn't just a wedding venue - it's our home, and a place close to our hearts. We care about the venue, and our personal approach means that no event need look or feel the same, nor will you be treated like ‘just another’ bride or groom. And while we're on hand to share our creative ideas or advice, we’re just as happy to leave you to it, to create your own dream day.
If you’d like to visit The Normans and discuss your wedding, Oliver, Laura and Sharon would love to meet you, so don't hesitate to contact us.
