We’re a bit spoilt here in Essex when it comes to wedding venues; from the grand, imposing houses like Braxted Park and Gosfield Hall, the gorgeous barns of Vaulty Manor and Gaynes Park to the historic Leez Priory, Creeksea Place and Hedingham Castle, not to mention a whole array of hotels where you can tie the knot. Living in such a large county like Essex is great for the wedding industry but what’s your favourite? Having worked as a florist, I’m “intimate” with quite a few!
Here are my favourites (in no particular order!):
Gaynes Park, Epping
Leez Priory, Felsted
Braxted Park, nr Witham
Gosfield Hall, Gosfield
The Lawn, Rochford
Creeksea Place, Burnham-on-Crouch
Boreham House, nr Chelmsford
Smeetham Hall Barn, nr Sudbury
Vaulty Manor, Heybridge.
And let me just throw in a venue which is very close to my heart –
Yaxley Hall, nr Eye, Suffolk (having been married there myself, I know first hand how gorgeous it is!)
