The Gardens
In keeping with such a historic building are the remarkable pleasure gardens at Oxnead Hall. These include extensive lawns which sweep down to a lake and the banks of the River Bure, beautiful water gardens, a dovecote, follies, fountains, a grand parterre and, a romantic walled garden all creating a magnificent backdrop for your celebrations. When planning your wedding at Oxnead Hall you'll be able to take advantage of outside ceremonies (duo ceremony), beautiful fountains, recorded or acoustic music in the ornamental garden and an abundance of stunning photo opportunities. After your drinks reception in the parterre gardens and the orangery, you and your guests will gain exclusive access to the enclosed courtyard garden next to The Long Room and Great Barn, providing the perfect location for garden games and other activities.

The Orangery
A charming, ornate building overlooking the grand parterre and lake with mullioned windows and stone busts on pedestals, this light-filled room is a fabulous and flexible event space. The Orangery is licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 50 guests, but if you have a larger wedding in mind this is the ideal location for arrival drinks and canapés with up to 100 guests inside and many more flowing out into the stunning ornamental gardens.
The Fountain Room
The Fountain Room leading from the picturesque Courtyard provides a further flexible space. Internally, the exposed brick and flint wall creates a rustic feel whilst the double doors onto the courtyard extend the space. The Fountain Room is licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 140 guests and doubles up as an relaxed and quiet area away from the main event in The Great Barn.

Accommodation
Internally, the Hall boasts opulent décor which perfectly suits the grandeur of the house. A wedding at Oxnead Hall offers you and your guests the chance to live in real luxury with 13 bedrooms included in your booking. The North Wing offers five bedrooms, with a large dining room capable of seating all of the guests staying in The North Wing and more, a generous kitchen and snug, it’s your home away from home. There’s also the Courtyard Room a short distance away, which offers three bedrooms. The charming and newly renovated Garden Cottage has four bedrooms, living room and fully equipped kitchen. The Bothy which is a self contained ensuite bedroom then completes the accommodation that must be taken with the hire of Oxnead. If your wedding party requires even more accommodation there is also another cottage on the Estate that can be added on to your booking, Hall Cottage is a newly renovated self-catering property with three bedrooms. Close to Norwich, the coast and the Broads National Park, Oxnead is a wonderful setting with a wealth of brilliant local accommodation to choose from if your wedding party is larger than the accommodation at the Estate.
Ceremonies
Not only can wedding couples have a civil ceremony at Oxnead Hall (in The Gardens, The Orangery or The Fountain Room), there is also the opportunity to marry in the beautiful 13th Century Church of St Michael, immediately adjacent to the Walled Garden and hidden away by woodland, or in St Andrew’s in the nearby village of Buxton. The Church of St Michael can accommodate 90 guests seated with an extra 10 standing. Couples wishing to marry in St Michael and who are not resident in the local area are likely to be required to attend at least 6 services but arrangements must be made directly with the Vicar.
