Why Pentney Abbey is the Perfect Venue for your Fairytale Wedding

At Pentney Abbey, there’s nothing we love more than a fairytale wedding. With our dramatic Gatehouse, arched windows and picturesque countryside, this exclusive-use venue really will ensure you feel like a princess on your special day. Let’s take a look at all the elements that make your Norfolk wedding venue perfect for a fairytale wedding.

An Idyllic Setting

Picture the fairytale castle, standing majestically in the midst of breathtaking countryside. Set in 35 acres of grounds with a tree-lined driveway, arriving at Pentney Abbey is just like coming home to your own private estate!

Bridal Style

Introduce your theme through your bridal style. A fairytale wedding dress is likely to feature a ballgown skirt and perhaps some lace and embellishment while your bridesmaids might wear a similar style but in a colour. Of course, the fairytale groom is handsome as can be! You might decide on traditional attire such as morning dress or a lounge suit, or go for something a little less formal but complete with buttonhole.

Saying ‘I do’

Marry in the imposing Gatehouse with its regal fireplaces, arched windows, huge wooden doors and high-beamed hallways. You might choose to add your own fairytale touches, from candles or fairy lights to beautiful boho-style floral arrangements with that ‘just picked’ look.

The Great Outdoors

Every fairytale features a rose, so what better place to enjoy your welcome drinks or a private moment with your new spouse than the Rose Garden at Pentney Abbey. This tranquil space features a romantic gate and pretty water feature – it couldn’t be more idyllic!

A Grand Banquet

Of course, fairytales always include a magnificent banquet and the Barn at Pentney boasts an awe-inspiring banquet hall. It’s time to dine and dance the night away. Embrace your fairytale theme with an enchanting wedding cake, beautiful stationery and quirky favours – perhaps a love potion, a single rose or a personalised cookie.
