The search for intimate weddings venues in Norfolk is increasing! Following the most recent government announcement (17th July), weddings and receptions of up to 30guests are allowed to now take place. I am sure this is going to help lots of couples, although there are still restrictions which means you need to be careful what you are planning, don’t get too carried away!! With a smaller scale, intimate wedding, some of the more typical wedding venues may not be quite right for your big day so here is a selection of some of the best intimate wedding venues Norfolk has to offer.
