Lavender & Wild Weddings
Discover a captivating woodland venue with glamping and design your unforgettable wedding day, moment by moment.
Underneath the trees,
your love story will unfold.
This secluded, all-outdoor venue, set amongst 60 acres of private woodland on the outskirts of Hingham, Norfolk is a place where dreams can come true. Since we only host on a limited number of weddings each year, we can ensure your day is as enchanting as the woodland setting that surrounds it.
Nestled in nature, your woodland wedding awaits.
There are so many options when you choose to have a woodland wedding with us. Whether you opt for a religious ceremony at St Andrews Church and walk to us for your reception, or choose to stay in the woods for the entire weekend, your wedding really can be completely bespoke. If you're a bride looking for an exceptional woodland aisle, come and take a stroll down ours. It stretches 210 metres and opens up to reveal a sensational clearing with beautiful views across 60 acres of private paddocks. Here you can set up your chosen marquee, tent or tipi for a memorable reception, and you and your closest friends and family can watch the sun set over the fields in front of you. Whether you invite 15 people or 120, come and design your day, your way.
Your wedding, your way
Dry Hire Venue
We are a dry-hire venue, meaning you can bring in your own suppliers and create the wedding you've always dreamed of. Alternatively, if that's a little daunting we have a few wedding packages you can choose from to cover the basics like electricity and loos. As an exclusive-use venue, you and your family and friends will have the woodland to yourselves from Friday right through until Sunday morning. We have one luxury glamping tent for the wedded couple, plus the option to hire an additional five bell tents to pitch in the adjoining field for family and friends to sleep under the stars. We are eco-friendly, dog-friendly and horse-friendly and welcome couples who long for the unconventional.
