Offering a picturesque and tranquil setting for your very special day, Great Yarmouth Racecourse is a beautiful wedding venue on the Norfolk Coast licensed for wedding ceremonies, civil ceremonies and vow renewals.
Set within vast grounds which allow ample free parking for hundreds of guests and the flexibility to have funfair rides, fireworks or bouncy castles if required, it also offers a unique backdrop for photographs with the racecourse. Despite the size of the venue you are guaranteed complete exclusivity on your special day.
Whether you are a racing enthusiast or not, weddings or ceremonies held on a race day are fantastic fun, as they have the added benefit of afternoon/evening entertainment provided by the horse racing. You could even have a race named after you, or present awards to the Best Turned Out Horse and Winning Owner!
Your wedding vow renewal ceremony is not legally binding, which gives you the freedom to celebrate in the way that is most personal to you. Of course, your ceremony may be officiated by local registrars, or you may wish to ask a friend to carry out the service for you, should you prefer.
