From choosing your venue to finding the best suppliers, there are a lot of decisions to make when planning a wedding. It is also worth considering the time of year to say “I do,” as each season has something unique to offer on your big day.
As a rustic venue in the heart of the Essex countryside, we’re delighted to provide a setting that lends itself wonderfully to each season.
Whether you’re planning a summer wedding with an outdoor ceremony or a cosy winter event with candles, you’ll find Old Essex Barn to be the perfect wedding venue all year round. Here’s why:
A range of ceremony options
We’re thrilled to give you the choice of marrying indoors or out at Old Essex Barn. Our ceremony areas range from grand to intimate, with the barn itself being the largest. Outdoor ceremonies are also available in our wedding gazebo, located within the beautiful grounds of our newly planted gardens. Exclusively yours on your big day, we’ll keep an eye on the weather prediction so you can plan your ceremony accordingly.
The natural beauty of the countryside
Old Essex Barn offers breathtaking views at every turn. The ideal positioning in peaceful formal gardens and the rolling Essex countryside while overlooking a duck pond provides many options for photos. This ever-changing landscape provides natural beauty all year, providing a stunning backdrop to your special day, whether you’re gazing out over sunshine and greenery or enjoying the delights of autumn and winter.
When it comes to wedding style, we hope you’ll think of Old Essex Barn as a blank canvas that you can customise to make your dream a reality. You can have the colour scheme and décor of your dreams without worrying about clashing with the carpet or wallpaper because of the high ceilings, natural materials, and neutral colours. Our barn’s adaptability allows it to accommodate a wide range of wedding themes – for an autumn wedding, rich, jewelled tones look magnificent, while delicate pastels and soft whites prevalent in the spring and summer months also work well. Of course, you could have a festive Christmas wedding complete with a tree!
No need for travel
Come rain or shine, you can spend your whole day at Old Essex Barn, from your civil ceremony to your evening celebration. You can even stay the night with our on-site accommodation!
