Venue Searching Pro Tip: You may have heard 'don't judge a book by it's cover.' My wedding planning tip when searching is to 'not judge a wedding venue by it's website'. Instead, if on paper the venue you are looking at ticks most of your requirements, take a moment to also search Norfolk wedding photographer blogs online, check out google reviews and most importantly arrange a venue visit. Nine times out of ten a wedding venue websites will not showcase everything the venue has to offer you as a ceremony and reception space.
