Just Perfect  
Attleborough   

When we first got engaged, we had a rough idea of the venue that we wanted to marry at. We looked at a couple of places before we went to view Hockering House and straight away we knew that that is where we wanted to marry! The venue itself is absolutely breath taking and we were lucky enough to be able to marry on the lawn outside, followed by our reception in the marquee. Not long before the date, we decided we'd like Sam to co-ordinate the day for us and I am so glad we did. Nothing went wrong at all (or at least I didn't notice!) Sam was there on hand any time of day for us and we cannot ever thank her enough. She is such a calming influence and so so kind.
So many of our guests commented on how spectacular Hockering House is and there is nowhere in the world we would have rather of have our special day. It was just perfect.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

When my wife and I got engaged the most important thing was that we would be married outdoors . We wanted the freedom to do everything our way. We had been to lots of other venues that can provide outdoor ceremonies but when we saw Hockering House we knew it was the right place. The beautiful grounds, the scenery, the woodland. It was exactly the right place for us and we really did find a place where we could have the wedding we pictured.

The owner Sam has been absolutely brilliant throughout the planning and the day itself. She helped us with advice and tips and she organised everyone so that the day flowed perfectly. On the day she never stopped! Sam wanted my bride to have the perfect day and with her enthusiasm, energy and attitude achieved this easily.

I am so pleased we chose Hockering House for our wedding. It was the perfect day in every way. Exactly how we wanted it.
Thank You Always

My new husband Jon and I first saw Hockering House when we stayed in the Gorsey Meadow, camping. We loved the relaxed natural feel of the place with it’s masses of mature trees, secluded location and wonderful wildlife. Once we got chatting to Sam and she showed us her woodland space, we instantly fell in love with the place and knew that we’d found the perfect venue for our quirky woodland wedding!

Our guests were as besotted with their surroundings as we were on the day. The kids enjoyed running through the trees and playing on the swings while the adults relaxed with drinks and had chance to take in the beautiful surroundings. The bell tents were a wonderful addition, so nicely dressed and the kids quilt covers were really appreciated and a super lovely touch!

Throughout the months leading up to our big day, Sam was just incredible... No other words for it! – She is so friendly, efficient, organised, enthusiastic and kind. Her professionalism and warm heartedness proceeds her as the local suppliers that we used really enjoy working with her as well. Nothing was too much hassle and every question or query was answered quickly and positively. We can’t thank you and Oliver enough for everything you did for us Sam, you allowed us to be unique and to have the ultimate wedding of our dreams. We will never forget our journey with you and the incredible big day we had. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Hockering House was the first wedding venue that we viewed after getting engaged and, although we visited a number of other venues in the early stages of our planning, nothing compared to it.

The venue itself is beautiful, with a very relaxed, country-garden feel, and the owner, Sam, is beyond helpful. We were able to build our day exactly as we wanted, with none of the restrictions on suppliers that you get with so many other venues.

We chose to pay a little extra for Sam's help with coordination on the day, and I would absolutely recommend this to any future couples. She was incredibly organised, friendly and professional, both during the wedding, and in the months leading up to it, when I could be sure that if I emailed her with a question she would be back to me with an answer within the hour.

Our wedding day at Hockering was incredible, and (so far as we are aware anyway) flowed without a hitch. Despite changeable weather forecasts, Sam did everything she could to allow our ceremony to be outside and luckily the great British weather was kind to us in the end.

We had so many lovely comments from friends and family, who all absolutely adored the venue. It really was the best day of our lives, and I really can't imagine it having being anywhere else.

We knew from the moment we first visited Hockering House that it was the place we wanted to get married, so much so we didn't even look anywhere else as we knew it wouldn't compare!
It is just such a beautiful and secluded place and has such a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere you just can't help falling in love with it.
Sam made us feel at ease from the moment we met her, she has a lovely enthusiasm about her and is just as excited about planning your day as you are.
She is so knowledgable and helpful, and really does listen to you. She looks after your needs, she understands how important your day is to you and does everything she can to help you realise your vision.
She allowed us to use the venue like a blank canvas so you can really have a day that is totally unique to you as a couple. She also put us in touch with suppliers that we could trust and rely on.
Because there is only 1 wedding per week here you can spend more time decorating your marquee. We got married on the Saturday and spent a full 2 days previous to this on site. This time was invaluable especially when you had as much stuff as we did! Tissue paper Pom Pom's take an awfully long time to fluff and tie to 130 chairs!!
Our guests really were blown away by Hockering House some commenting that it was the best wedding venue they had ever been to! Some of the Highlights included Bill's ices ice cream van & Christophe's crepe van which were both recommended suppliers of Sam's, they went down a storm with our guests!
I really feel that none of the magic of our wedding would of been possible without Sam's guidance and undivided attention to detail. Her and her family are so friendly and helpful and were always checking if there was anything we needed and offering help. I only have one regret which was not using Sam for our on the day co-ordination as it would of taken a lot of the pressure off of us on the day, If you are in 2 minds I would definitely recommend having Sam's invaluable expert help to make everything runs smoothly on the day!
In conclusion we both want to say a massive thank you to Sam and all her family at Hockering House it really is the most beautiful setting to get married in not a day goes by that I don't want to rewind and do it all over again!
