Abbey Barn – a new Norfolk wedding venue

A chic, contemporary barn venue in West Norfolk

Anyone who knows me in real life will know that I am, at best, a little ambivalent about most barn wedding venues – all that orangey wood and red brick – well, its just so bloody barny-y isn’t it? However, enter Abbey Barn. Now Norfolk (which, as I’m sure you can imagine, is doing pretty well on the barn venue front) has its own modern, stylish barn wedding venue that’s somehow both full of personality and a blank canvas. With an industrial chic edge – all bare ducting and exposed white brick work; one area of the barn is lit beautifully with natural light and has neutral colours which would work with any kind of wedding styling – you could go neutral like in our shoot below, or play with all kinds of colours to truly bring your wedding day to life. The other side has a vibrant teal wall which I love and serves as an epic backdrop to all kinds of things – cool couple portraits, your cake and decor and all kinds of late night shenanigans.

Unique Norfolk wedding venues

Abbey Barn is run by the veterans of the East Anglian wedding world – the team at Unique Norfolk Venues. They also run iconic locations like Pentney Abbey, Reymerston Hall, Oxnead Hall as well as the similarly newly opened Shotesham Park. They have an excellent reputation, so you know with their team of planners at the helm, your wedding day at Abbey Barn is going to be epic.

Although, at the time of our photoshoot, they were still finishing the accommodation, so I didn’t get to see it; there is going to be a farm house offering stylish accommodation and a place to get ready for your wedding. It’s got cool features, like a permanent space for an outdoor ceremony and the most contemporary toilets I’ve ever seen in a wedding venue.

Our styled shoot at Abbey Barn

The team at Floral Sistas wanted to come up with something contemporary, neutral and modern but most importantly something that you might actually to think, ‘hey, I want my wedding to look just like that’ and so we have classic white flowers, lots of greenery; monochrome table settings and a geometric cake from Edge by Imogen Davison. The Floral Sistas gals ran with this – creating a black and white lounge area as a chill out space near the bar.
