History

Although a new venue for weddings, Bracon Lodge has a long, rich history. The original house was built in the 17th century, then sold in 1765 to John Corbould, one of the City Fathers of Norwich. He was a partner in the hatmaking firm Corbould and Willmot, and the house stayed in the family until 1810. The Corboulds made alterations to the house, enlarging it and building a unique crinkle crankle wall in the gardens. The famed architect Nikolaus Pevsners made particular note of this, and the prominent porch, in his issues of The Buildings of England.

Facilities

At Bracon Lodge, you can use the house and gardens to your advantage to create a bespoke wedding day. The wedding team encourage you to have a marquee anywhere in the grounds, but on the front lawn you could sip Champagne with a view of the stunning Georgian house, built in local Gault brick. You can also explore the romantic elements of the gardens, including the unique crinkle crankle wall that winds behind the house near the scenic lake, hedge maze and tennis courts.

Host up to 200 guests at your wedding breakfast and evening reception, and see in wedded life in elegant Georgian style.

Accommodation

As well as accommodation for 36 people on site, there are also plenty of local hotels and B&Bs which the venue can point you towards, so all of your wedding party can have somewhere to go after your wonderful wedding celebrations.

The house has been sympathetically restored to maintain all the 17th century charm with modern necessities. On of the highlights is the Georgian stick baluster staircase. You can see this, and explore the rest of the house, in the tour below.
