Happy Wedding Couple


Your wedding at Pentney Abbey will be something you’ll remember forever, and how and where you celebrate is completely up to you. Plus, with the help of Unique Norfolk Venues – Pentney Abbey’s talented wedding planners, who can arrange everything from save the date cards to a helicopter entrance – you’ll see that dreams really do come true.

Hold your ceremony in the Gatehouse, where up to 80 guests can take in its beautiful, historic décor upstairs and more can see the moment you say, ‘I do’ on a big screen downstairs. If you plan to hold your wedding breakfast and reception in the Barn, you’re welcome to serve drinks and canapes in the Gatehouse post-vows, or step outside into the courtyard or Rose Garden for photos while the space is prepared.

If you’re planning a bigger wedding, the Barn is a perfect choice for your ceremony. It’ll accommodate up to 130 guests and the chairs can be arranged however you like. With this many guests, it makes sense to have your wedding breakfast and reception here too – and just outside on the shiny new patio and plush lawn if the weather’s warm enough – so why not lead your friends and family to the Gatehouse for drinks while the Barn is turned around? That way they’ll get to take in the unique history of this stunning venue and you and your partner can escape for a few quiet moments together either in the grounds, Rose Garden or your Bridal Cottage. There’s also the option to say your vows in the Farmhouse, a charming and cosy home away from home that sits at the heart of Pentney Abbey’s grounds.

Your wedding breakfast will be taken care of by Unique Norfolk Venues’s professional catering team, which includes renowned Norfolk-based executive chef, Keith McDowell, and will be brimming with sumptuous seasonal and locally sourced food your guests will talk about for years and years. When it comes to your reception, the options are endless. There’s a new dance floor in the Barn, as well as a striking new Bar area, and there’s room to have a bouncy castle or garden games on the lawn outside.

You can even hire a marquee that extends from the doors of the Barn out onto the patio and grass, making it one big wedding party space.
