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:
WHY IT BECAME "BAD LUCK" FOR THE GROOM TO SEE BRIDE BEFORE THE CEREMONY
Until relatively recently, brides were considered the property of their father. Their futures and husbands were arranged without their consent. The marriage of an unattractive woman was often arranged with a prospective groom from another town without either of them having ever seen their prospective spouse. In more than one instance, when the groom saw his future wife, usually dressed in white, for the first time on the day of the wedding, he changed his mind and left the bride at the altar. To prevent this from happening, it became "bad luck" for the groom to see the bride on the day of the wedding prior to the ceremony.
