Norfolk venue, The Old Rectory at Great Melton
It’s been a while since I posted here, mostly due to lack of weddings for obvious reasons. With a little lift in certain restrictions, I’ve dusted off my cameras! I’ve been to a favourite Norfolk venue, The Old Rectory at Great Melton. It’s a few minutes’ drive from Norwich, and a few minutes’ drive from my own home.
This time of the year is perfect for Norfolk venue photography. The Old Rectory never disappoints, but this month it really is coming into its own. I was left to wander the grounds to photograph with my own eye, no contact required!
Wedding celebrations are often in a marquee on the front lawn of this pretty house, but there’s also the option of the Glade, a beautiful spot behind the rectory. The garden is a haven for wildlife, there are daisies and buttercups among countless other wild flowers in the gardens, so it’s a lovely mix of formal and informal. Biodiversity is the name of the game, and this beautiful wedding venue does this so well.
This house holds special memories for me personally. I was fortunate to stay there for a few years, and even started my business there back in 2003, from one of the bedrooms. It’s an island of peace in a busy world. It was so good to be back there, and to see the great work that Head Gardener Chris, venue owner Eileen and resident hound Carrie have made of the gardens.
If you’re looking for a Norfolk venue for your celebrations or your wedding, it’s worth a look. But you’ll need to be quick! It’s a very popular venue.
I hope you’re all doing okay, and thank you so much to all you couples who are getting in touch about your weddings next year, and those whose weddings I was going to cover this year but are being postponed. Love is really all that matters! The rings can wait! Stay well, and enjoy all the moments.
