In the midst of summer, the gardens at Pentney Abbey really come into their own. Following your ceremony in The Gatehouse or The Barn, with sunlight streaming through the windows, celebrate with your guests in the great outdoors. On a sunny day, any children at your wedding will love playing in the field next to the barn where you can set up garden games… perhaps even an ice-cream stand or a bouncy castle. Make sure your summer wedding menu reflects the time of year with seasonal food, vibrant colours and cool cocktails.

All About Autumn
As summer comes to an end and the leaves begin to fall, Pentney Abbey is bathed in the rich autumn hues of the Norfolk countryside. Bring these autumn colours into your flowers and foliage and introduce candlelight into the venue, perhaps with beautiful candelabra in The Barn. In early autumn, the gardens beckon for welcome drinks and canapés. Of course, the beauty of an exclusive use wedding venue is that it’s all for you – you can be inside or out, depending on the weather.

There’s something endlessly romantic about a winter wedding. At Pentney Abbey, we invite you to marry in our ethereal Gatehouse, the perfect place for a winter wedding, with its arched windows and hanging tapestries. Add romance to the setting with fairy lights before enjoying welcome drinks in the Barn complete with its newly refurbished bar. This is the time to introduce candlelight, ambient lighting and beautiful foliage. If you’re marrying in December, you might even decide to have a fabulous Christmas tree and add a festive touch to your decorations. After all… what’s more romantic than mistletoe?
