The Orangery is a sweet and simply decorated red brick building, which sits up from the lake gardens, the perfect outdoor wedding venue in Norfolk. Exuding elegance, the building will have once been filled with twisting trees and plants, the smell of sweet fruit and perhaps a spot for one to sit and admire the view.
An Orangery wedding offers an impressive backdrop for professional photographs and candid shots alike with stone relief adornments, turret-like details on the roof and a huge framed door. And, if you’re looking for small wedding venues in Norfolk, this is the perfect way to have a more intimate portion to your day and then have free reign of the rest of the venue later.
Inside it’s light and airy owing to the large windows and is home to romantic stone busts atop pedestals and a beautiful stone floor. Ornate carvings add to the whimsical atmosphere of The Orangery and the clean white walls welcome your own personal touches, be that with sophisticated cream or vibrant blooms, ribbon-backed chairs or church candles.
The openness of The Orangery means it is ideal for smaller ceremonies of up to 50 guests, or for arrival drinks and canapes for around 100. The terrace outside invites guests to spill out and take in the gorgeous Norfolk views or enjoy afternoon tea with the sight of Oxnead Hall’s swans coming in to land in the distance.
