Read through the comments below to see what previous couples said about their wedding at The Great Barn!
“We wanted to express our sincere thanks for an absolutely fantastic weekend at Manor Mews. The cottages were perfect, and we have many wonderful memories of time with our friends and families in various common areas. Everyone was very comfortable as well.
The Great Barn also proved to be an amazing wedding venue, and our special day was everything we hoped it would be and more. Thank you for accommodating so many requests, and of course for the lovely flowers and note you left for us as well.
Sorry that we were not able to say goodbye to both of you before we had to leave, but we will be sending everyone we know who is visiting Norfolk or considering a wedding your way!”

“From seeing an advert for Manor Mews I knew this venue was the one and so wrote to them demanding a visit. I was so excited I’m pretty sure I forgot the basics, i.e. when I would want a wedding, what kind of thing I’m looking for etc. I half-heartedly booked other venues to view but for after MM so I didn’t have to bother seeing them if MM was perfect, and guess what, it was. In every single way. Janie and Shirley are the most fantastic of women, so welcoming, so kind and so enthusiastic to share my happiness and excitement. We came to visit, and it is just beautiful, I said yes even when I was just in the car park…even my hungover husband to be perked up. We met the ladies, saw the barn, accommodation and the rest is history.
I truly believe without Janie and Shirley, and my UNV coordinator Cody, my day would have been a completely stressful occasion, but all three women treated me like family. No question was too many, no email too long, no detail too minor; they supported me all the way up until the Monday we left (post wedding) and a few queries after! I didn’t feel any stress knowing I had the magnificent three ready to fix any problem (excluding the rain despite Shirley’s husband trying!), but it made the venue gorgeous and people huddled together!
The UNV partnership is great, I was a bit wary at first, but Cody let me express all my concerns and I built up the wedding the way I wanted with the amazing help of Epic Events.
Honestly, I had the most amazing wedding, every supplier was so kind, the ladies were incredible, and they just made me feel like the world was going my way. The accommodation is incredible and seriously under emphasised, my guests could not believe they were staying where they were. The honeymoon cottage is nicer than my house. Everything was beautiful, everything still makes me smile looking back on it, and I have to push every bride to have a weekend wedding. By Sunday eve my best friends were new best friends with uncles and work colleagues were best friends with cousins.
With the accommodation and barn; and my three ladies I had the best, most fun and stress free wedding and weekend. I don’t like my teeth but in the photos all you can see is a big grin, I could not stop smiling, and genuinely one of the happiest days of my life.
Thank you MM/UNV crew, and my best wishes to you all!”

“Getting married in the countryside was always a big dream of mine and Manor Mews was the perfect place for it. We had our ceremony and reception at the great barn and it was everything I could have asked for and more…the fairy, the fairy lights, it just makes this barn a perfect wedding venue.
The cottages are so luxurious and cosy, we had over 60 guest staying with us for 4 nights, we even had a big BBQ a day before the wedding…. it felt so special.
The wedding planner and staff were amazing, and a big help throughout the planning process and the big day.
The food prepared by their own in house catering team headed up by executive chef Keith McDowell was amazing and they even managed to bring in some special drinks that we required.
Our wedding day was such a big success and we thank the venue and staff for all their help. We are already planning to come back and stay at one of the cottages for our wedding anniversary, that’s how amazing Manor Mews is! Thank you Manor Mews.”

“Thank you so much for the use of your venue for our wedding weekend, it was absolutely perfect and we cannot imagine having been anywhere else.
We have had so many comments from people about how wonderful a place Manor Mews is, including a couple who were married in Norfolk a few years ago wondering why they hadn’t seen the venue! The photographers also couldn’t believe they hadn’t been to Manor Mews yet, and they loved the venue for taking pictures. I’m sure that Manor Mews will not be sneaking under anyone’s radar for much longer the place is gorgeous and to have all the accommodation on site for family and friends lends to a truly special atmosphere.
Thank you also for the rose bush that is now in our garden. It was so thoughtful and shows how you really go the extra mile at Manor Mews!”
Alex & Libby, 2018
“Thank you so much for all your help and support over the last few months. We had such a magical time at Manor Mews – we really could not have asked for anything better!”
Siray & Alex, 2018
“Thank you so much for your excellent organisation with our cottage bookings and our delicious fizz in our Sheepshed.
We had the most amazing wedding at Manor Mews and were so grateful to be able to continue our celebrations with friends and family staying in the cottages over the weekend – plus everyone loved them.”
Mr and Mrs Ballingall, 2018
“Thank you for all of your hard work and effort and for being so accommodating for our wedding. We had an absolutely fantastic weekend.”
Carl & Charlotte, 2018
“We are so hugely grateful for everything that you did to make our wedding day just perfect. You were always on hand to answer our questions and your passion for The Great Barn really comes through, we wish you all the best as you continue to host events, you have such a wonderful set up with the gorgeous cottages too – our guests loved them.
Thank you also for the gorgeous rose that you so kindly gave us – it is making its roots in the view out of our kitchen window and seems to be flourishing.
We felt like we knew you as people rather than business associates and that was really rather lovely.”
Kate & Andy, 2018
“We can’t speak highly enough of Manor Mews! From our first visit, the warmth, kindness and personal attention of Janie, Shirley and their team made the whole experience very special.
The cottages and barn are beautiful and the grounds peaceful, pretty and charming with many lovely spots for our wedding photos.
We brought our families together in the relaxing and peaceful surroundings with the opportunity for them to get to know each other over the 3 days, making the most of the occasion so it didn’t feel as if it was over too quickly. It was ideal to have everything we needed in one location so we could relax and enjoy our special day without rushing around.
On the day, the barn and garden looked perfect and the organisation was spot on. The staff looking after us were friendly and professional with quality of the food superb.
We would highly recommend Manor Mews.”
