Out-of-control wedding guests are ruining our lives – we put up signs to BAN them | The Sun

WILD guests keeping locals awake all night near an exclusive wedding venue are being met with signs telling them to get lost.

Furious neighbours say rowdy punters flocking to the idyllic 16th Century pile not only wreck their sleep but also use their gardens as a toilet.

Neighbour Roger Crane says the antics have left his wife Susi "sickened to the core", with the pair making signs to voice their fury.

Mr Crane slammed: "Guests have wandered through the yard and even relieved themselves in their gardens.

"One poor lady puts her children to bed to the sound of Michael Jackson."

Signs outside the carpark at Oxnead Hall, in Norfolk, bark slogans like 'BRIDES AND GROOMS NOT WELCOME IN OXNEAD'.

While another tells guests of the weddings – which cost north of £15,000 – 'NO MORE WEDDINGS WE'VE HAD ENOUGH'.


The Cranes, who own three rented houses next to the hall, admit their signs are "harsh" but say locals' lives are ruined and many are at breaking point with "excessive noise".

Resident Lorna Crook says she was forced to move her bedroom from the front to the back of her house because of the raucous bashes.

The stable manager slammed: "When it was once or twice a week, you could deal with that, but it's up to six a week."

Vehicles of guests also stream past their homes, some shining headlights into houses when leaving late at night.

And guests even drive across their land, leaving glasses in their yard and terrifying Lorna's nervous horses.

Others say they are unable to sit outside in the summer without having their peace wrecked by shouting and laughing.

The hall, near Aylsham, is owned by former Fortnum and Mason's director Beverley Aspinall and hubby David.


Mr Crane claims the owners told residents they wanted "a few weddings to support the upkeep of the hall" – a request "respected" by locals.

Wedding numbers were limited before the pandemic, but when lockdown restrictions lifted to allow more events, the venue was met with a backlog.

Residents claim the extra permission was granted without them being consulted but they unsuccessfully tried to challenge the family through Broadland district council.

But the Aspinall's say that while they've installed soundproofing, employed security and thrown up a fence, they "regretted" how "very difficult" it has been working with residents on a solution.

"We've had staff resignations because of the way they've been treated", Mrs Aspinall slammed.

Broadland council said: "The council is currently investigating an enforcement complaint regarding the breach of the noise condition on the site."
