A new south Norfolk wedding venue says it will emphasise its close links to Bressingham Gardens and the well-known Bloom family to help make it a landmark in the area.

An open day for families was staged on Saturday to mark the launch of the events venue at the newly-renovated Bressingham Hall and High Barn, historic buildings off the A1066 Low Road, which have now reached 70 years under the ownership of the Blooms.

The venue is the result of several years of collaboration between the Blooms, who also own the nearby gardens, and the Venue Group, the company managing the day-to-day operations of the business.

Samantha Clifford, Venue and Events Manager at Bressingham Hall and High Barn, said its unique location and history could help make it a “destination” not only for local people, but far outside the region as well.

“The most important appeal is Bressingham Gardens, the history of the hall, and the history and heritage of the Bloom family,” she told the Diss Express.

“For a wedding venue to have these gardens as a backdrop and for couples to wonder through was the ideal situation.”

Bressingham Hall, a Grade II listed Georgian manor house, has been refurbished to accommodate up to 18 guests, while the High Barn, an oak building dating back to the 19th Century, has been adapted for 120 seated guests, and as many as 200 people for a reception or party.

The facility is also using the Chopping Block as its catering service, but Ms Clifford stated they were keen for the venue to maintain its Norfolk roots by sourcing its produce locally.

“We very much want the venue itself to represent Norfolk,” she added.
