That Amazing Place, is an aptly named, exclusive use wedding venue that offers a wonderful blend of history, chic décor, and idyllic grounds. Dating back to the 15th Century, this Grade II Listed country house in rural Essex began its life as a monastery. After a recent renovation, the country house is now perfectly suited to hosting unforgettable wedding ceremonies and receptions and provides an unparalleled level of sophistication and luxury. Boasting a choice of tastefully decorated reception rooms, a grand lobby, award-winning accommodation of the highest quality and picturesque gardens, it's easy to see why this Essex wedding venue is so highly sought after. The hard work that goes into making That Amazing Place so special has recently been rewarded, with the impressive country house being named Best Countryside Wedding Venue for the East of England at the 2019 Wedding Industry Awards. You can rest assured that your big day here will be at one of the finest wedding venues around.
Guest can choose from three delightful settings in which to tie the knot. The Lakeview Lounge seats up to 70 guests making it perfect for a smaller, more intimate ceremony. The exquisite sash windows offer stunning views of the lake and let the light pour in. The Hall can hold 100 guests and, with its high ceilings and beautiful mirrored wall, it makes a bright and unique place to exchange vows. Couples can also say ‘I do' al fresco under the beautiful ceremony gazebo in the gardens. With the lake as your backdrop, it's a wonderful place for a summer wedding within tranquil surroundings.
For couples preferring a church ceremony instead, St. Mary's Churchgate is just a stone's throw away. Only a couple of minutes by car, the church is also just a 10-minute walk from the venue, allowing guests to stroll from one to the other and enjoy the fresh air, should they wish to.
The patio is the perfect place to enjoy a summer drinks reception, from which guests can wander and explore the peaceful grounds and lake. It's ideal for mingling and making most of the warm weather and helps to create a relaxed feel to your wedding day. Alternatively, That Amazing Place offers a number of elegant reception rooms that boast stylish décor, comfortable seating and roaring fires, making for a wonderfully cosy place to enjoy a drink in the winter months.
With a choice of settings that are perfectly suited to a range of party size, you'll be able to pick the right place for your wedding breakfast and evening reception at That Amazing Place. All the reception rooms are finished to the same exacting standards, with the largest seating up to 80 guests. This number is easily increased, however, by extending the space with an impressive marquee structure that's complete with lake views.
After you've wined, dined and danced the night away, you and your guests can enjoy the stylish and inviting bedrooms on off at That Amazing Place. From 2018, a new luxurious Bridal Cottage will be open, as well an additional 13 guest rooms. You’ll have complete privacy on your special day and know that your nearest and dearest can relax and enjoy themselves without thinking about transport at the end of the night.
Despite the tranquil and peaceful setting of the venue, That Amazing Place is easily accessible from M11 and just 45 minutes from Central London by car. Stansted Airport and Epping tube station are both only 15 minutes away too, making this country house wedding venue the perfect rural escape from the city.
