About Applewood Hall

Situated in the quaint village of Banham, one of Norfolk’s best-kept secrets, Applewood Hall offers an undeniably unique wedding venue for your special day whether it’s an intimate gathering or a grand affair. We understand that every wedding and civil ceremony is unique and the memories created will last forever. So we offer couples the opportunity to create their perfect wedding day without the constraints of a formal wedding package, to ensure everything is just the way you imagined.

Within the rustic charm of our marquee lined hall, you will find not only your perfect wedding venue and two licensed ceremony rooms, but a friendly and professional team ready to deliver the day of your dreams so you can relax, with the peace of mind that the essential elements of your day are all taken care of.

We also offer quirky accommodation with our cosy glamping pods and luxury-styled shepherd's cabins providing the perfect retreat after a long night on the dancefloor.

And if that wasn’t enough, Applewood Hall is located next to Banham Zoo, so if you fancied something a little bit different whether it’s a giraffe feeding experience, a ceremony within the zoo grounds or photos with some of the stunning animals – anything is possible!

You really can tailor the day to suit your wishes, so if you would like something truly unique, please get in touch!
