Lynford Hall Hotel :-
A Grade II listed mansion built in the Jacobean style designed by William Burn and constructed between 1857 and 1862 to replace a former hall built in 1720 by James Nelthorpe whose daughter married James Hoste, the then owner of Sandringham House. The property was built for Stephen Lyne-Stephens who married "Pauline" (Yolande Marie-Louise) Duvernay, the celebrated French ballerina. The property extended to 7,718 acres and was renowned as one of the finest sporting estates in East Anglia. There were many royal visitors to the estate with the magnificent ballroom the scene for many hunt balls.


Wedding Trivia:
SHOES TO THE CAR
This tradition originated in England during the Tudor period. At that time, guests would throw shoes at the bride and groom as they left in their carriage. It was considered good luck if their carriage was hit. Today, more often than not, it is beverage cans that are tied to a couples car instead of shoes. It should also be noted that the English consider it good luck if it rains on their wedding day!
