As a private estate, we don’t have as many of the restrictions that apply to some venues, so if the thought of music, food and dancing all day and into the night for your wedding day has you covered in goose pimples.
We are delighted that Bridebook have awarded Hockering House a Silver award in the venue category. This is a fabulous achievement for a venue which hosts a small number of weddings each year, thank you to all who submitted testimonials and voted for us. Thank you also to the Telegraph who included Hockering House as one of the Best places to get married in the UK. One of only three venue listed in the East of England!
Hockering House nestles within the heart of Norfolk’s beautiful countryside, yet is just 15 minutes from Norwich. A truly unique venue with no set packages, where your only limitation is your imagination.
Hockering House is licensed to conduct both civil marriage weddings and partnerships, duo ceremonies, and is also the perfect venue for your renewal of vows, naming and humanist ceremonies. We offer ceremonies both on the lawn or in the woodland. The grounds and parkland of this handsome country house are exclusively yours for your day and we only have one wedding per week so there is plenty of time to set up with family & friends.
With over 20 years of event experience and 10 years of weddings at Hockering House, from the first meeting to your last dance, owners Oliver and Sam Berney will help you create your perfect wedding day. Whether you are looking for that beautiful elegant wedding or maybe wanting something unique and fun, then Hockering House is your perfect Wedding Venue in Norfolk.

Not quite sure where to start to be honest. If you’re thinking of getting married then quite honestly, you will struggle to find anywhere as intimate, professional and beautiful as Hockering House.

Hockering House was a wonderful place for us to hold our wedding reception – we wanted to be outside and for our guests to be able to camp, so Hockering was perfect for our needs, but with the House and its beautiful view as a backdrop, and Sam’s help and advice throughout the preparations and […][read more]
