Wedding receptions

The Cathedral is one of the most iconic venues in Norwich, with its famous spire dominating the city skyline. Perhaps lesser known is the fact that the Cathedral is available as a venue for wedding receptions.

It is simply the most beautiful setting for your wedding day. Picture drinks on arrival in the historic Cloisters, followed by photographs in the idyllic Cathedral Close (including the often favoured Pulls Ferry along with the more secluded Herb Garden and Ferry Lane pathway, so popular with leading lifestyle brands for fashion shoots).

Then there are the facilities in which you will dine and party the night away; the Hostry and Refectory. These recent extensions to the Cathedral’s facilities have won admirers as well as awards in architectural circles, contrasting perfectly with the antiquity of the Cathedral and hanging to its walls like stylish wooden arcs. These are spaces that you can make your own. 

What’s more, you’ll enjoy food produced freshly on-site and chosen from the new wedding menu designed by the Cathedral’s Head Chef, Kelly Davy.

If you are looking for a venue like no other then this could be the one for you. Please take a look through our brochure to find out more about our facilities, menu and prices. Our Hospitality Manager will then be happy to meet with you to discuss your requirements.
