10 Of The Best Wedding Venues in Essex
20th March 2022
Essex is a county in the East of England. It is nestled to the North East of the capital city of London and borders the counties of Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. In my time as an Essex Wedding Videographer, I have been lucky enough to visit some stunning wedding venues in Essex. With some large towns like Colchester and Braintree and the county capital of Chelmsford, there are plenty of locations for your wedding day.
If you are getting married in this fantastic county I have put together a list of ten of the best wedding venues in Essex.
1. Colville Hall
2. The Compasses, at Pattiswick
Winners of The Best Wedding Event Team & The Best Wedding Venue at the Essex wedding Awards 2020. Located in North Essex this venue is becoming increasingly popular. It can handle formal ceremonies for up to 50 and informal for up to 180 the Compasses is worthy of consideration. Check out the amazing virtual tour on their website.
3. Leez Priory
Three times winner of the Wedding Ideas Magazine’ Best Wedding Venue, Leez Priory is a fantastic Manor House style of venue. The venue has accommodation with 25 bedrooms. The whole venue just exudes a classical ambience. Check out the video of the venue on their website.
5. The Lawn, Rochford
6. Stoke By Nayland
7. Gosfield Hall
8. Braxted Park
9. Milsom Weddings
10. White Hart, Great Yeldham
While the Pandemic restrictions apply the venue has taken the opportunity to refurbish various elements of the facilities, so when they open again in Early 2021 everything will be shiny and new looking. The White Hart is a coaching Inn with a history going back to the 15th century. The Essex Bar, inside the grounds of the White Hart was purpose-built and offers a truly unique wedding venue. They can seat up to 200 guests and also have 13 guest bedrooms available for those who need to stay. They also offer a large bridal prep room for your convenience. Check out this White Hart Wedding video. Great Yeldham is not far from the Sussex Border and is accessible from Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.
As you can see, Essex has a wide selection of beautiful wedding venues. I hope this helps with your wedding venue search. While you can ditch any aspect of a wedding you want, the flowers, the cake, the dress code, what you cannot ditch is having a venue. Finding just the right venue is important and can make or break the day. However, it’s not that easy to find just the right venue, which is why we try to help by scouting out the best venues in the country for you.
If you can’t find the perfect venue for you I would be surprised. If however, you look to the south you have the capital. Then if you are looking for a wedding videographer in London then give me a call.
