FAQs
When are you getting married?

Saturday 21st August 2021

Where are you getting married?

We will be getting married in the fine city of Norwich and both the wedding venue and the reception will be in the city centre. It is a mile's walk between the two venues.

Is there anything I can do to help?

Yes!

We love it when our community offers to help. If you have a particular skill or talent to share we would love for you to tell us how you could help make our day even more special. 

What should I do now?

Sit back, relax and pour a cup of tea.

We will send out invitations via email closer to the time.

We just wanted to let you know that we would love for you to be involved in our day, and, that we would really cherish your presence at the event.

Are children invited?

As much as we would love to have your little ones join us we have a finite amount of space and lots of family and friends. Our wedding will be an adult only event.

What part of the day will I be attending?

We are lucky to have lots of awesome people in our lives, but, probably too many to fit into the ceremony room at once. Our day will be in three parts - the ceremony, wedding breakfast, and evening reception. Your invitation will clearly state which part of the day we would like you to attend.

I still have questions, what is the best way to contact you?

Give either of us a call and we will do our best to answer any questions you have. Alternatively send us an email at edwards.vaughan@outlook.com

Parks and Gardens
We love to amble around the parks and there are some gorgeous ones in Norwich. Go have a look at The Plantation Garden which is just outside of the city centre. If you bring your tennis racket and are staying for a few days then Adam would love a game of tennis in Eaton Park. If you are feeling spritely on Saturday morning you can even join the 5km Norwich Parkrun in Eaton Park. We also love to walk around Whitlingham Broad which is just outside of Norwich, and it would be great if you could join us for a stroll here on Sunday morning.

Art
There is a great free gallery in the city centre called East Gallery which hosts touring exhibitions. We would also recommend you make a trip to the Sainsbury Centre at the UEA which has a lovely collection and is home to the Avengers.

History
There is a castle in the city centre! Norwich Castle was built by the Normans as a Royal Palace 900 years ago and is now a museum and art gallery, it is packed with treasures to inspire and intrigue visitors of all ages. You can also visit Norwich Cathedral which is a spectacular Romanesque building, it has the second tallest spire in the UK and the roof is incredible. You can take a free guided tour and learn about how the Cathedral survived riot, war, plague and fire from Monday to Saturday every hour between 11.00am and 3.00pm. The tour lasts approximately one hour.

Explore Norfolk

If you get a chance to stay a few more days then Norfolk has so many beautiful places to explore. The Broads and the county’s beautiful coastline are just a short train or bike ride away from Norwich. We think the best way to see Norfolk is by boat, bike or canoe.
Boat Hire | Head to Wroxham and hire a boat for the day. It's first-come, first-served and is very popular. | www.broadstours.co.uk/standard-broads-day-boats/
Bike Hire | It's best to call and book a bike in advance | www.bicyclelinks.org.uk/bike-hire/
Blicking Hall | This beautiful National Trust site is a place we visit often and it is where Alice proposed. Maybe you could see if you can find the hidden yew arbour where she said will you marry me? | www.nationaltrust.org.uk/blickling-estate
Beach | Everyone has a favourite beach and ours is Winterton-on-Sea. Sand, sun and a delicious cafe; an awesome way to spend a day | www.explorenorfolkuk.co.uk/winterton-beach.html
