Welcome to The Keeper and the Dell, a fully licensed, wonderfully secluded, outdoor wedding venue in Norfolk, England. Built in the 18th Century, celebrating Weddings since 2013.
Take your Vows in any of our beautiful outdoor spaces, completing the service in our Devotion Den or the 18th Century Barn. The Keeper and the Dell is nestled below the trees of an ancient woodland estate, tucked away in private grounds where you can romantically enjoy your own Wedding with your close friends & family, just the way you've always dreamed. The Keeper and the Dell is a much coveted Venue for Couples looking for somewhere equally away from the norm as well as feeling like home.
"The Keeper and the Dell ~ privately owned, giving personal attention from our family to yours"
Bookings are made with exclusive use over a weekend, for up to 100 guests ~ giving you space and time to make the most of this delightful venue to create your own wedding in the style you love. Whether it be simply rustic, classic chic, bohemian hip or vintage homemade ~ the possibilities are delightfully endless. Surrounded by a medieval grove, The Keeper and the Dell offers the Bride & Groom and their guests a pretty, romantic venue with the wonderful chance to marry, celebrate & sleep under the stars, all within a beautiful country setting.
You may not have been born in a barn, or happen to live in one, but at The Keeper and the Dell, you get the unique chance to celebrate your wedding fully in your own relaxed style. Whilst the historic barn is a main feature, guests can also find themselves enjoying the fabulous Terrace, Birch Gardens, and the Dell itself with Cabin Deck, Den and beautiful vintage Marquee ~ giving plenty of beautiful spaces for photo opportunities and shelter from whatever the English Summer may throw at us!
We simply cannot recommend the Keeper and the Dell highly enough. Just Imagine getting married at a wonderful venue.
It is so different to the halls you often see. It offered the most beautiful backdrop for our photos, our guests loved it
almost as much as we did and visually, no other venue in Norfolk comes close. The Keeper and the dell is just so idyllic.
visually it’s perfect, but it was the attention to detail from Lolly and her amazing staff that really
made us feel at ease and left us to simply enjoy our perfect day.
A rustic 18th Century Barn, fully licensed for Marriages & Civil Ceremonies. Beautifully decorated with vintage furnishings and pretty lighting, never too far from a cup of tea in Camp Kitchen or a beer from the Saloon Bar. Upstairs you'll find a lovely mezzanine level and the 'Sluttery', a women's dressing room for powdering your nose, storing over night bags or simply to chatter the night away in.
Our wonderful marquee is included in the hire rate at no extra cost. We're very proud of our marquee and rightly so as it is beautifully vintage, handmade in Norfolk with a traditional canvas and strong wooden poles. Comes complete with British made coconut matting flooring, festoon lighting and chandeliers, with vintage wooden tables & chairs for up to 100 guests.
After your Ceremony, lead your guests to The Terrace, to be served Celebration Drinks & Nibbles. Here, you can all bask in the beauty of the day, taking in the lovely surroundings. The Terrace, dressed with Straw bales around the fire pit and our vintage wooden table & chairs is a unique place for guests to enjoy an Afternoon Tea with a slice of Wedding Cake. Later in the evening, its the perfect spot for your Caterer to rock up in the evening to serve street food.
