5 Reasons That You’ll Love Braxted Park wedding venue in Essex | CHWV

This grand country house wedding venue is one that you have to see!

Braxted Park is a magnificent country house and truly one of the finest wedding venues in Essex. For those looking for a romantic setting full of elegance and traditional charm, this stunning Georgian mansion with its idyllic grounds is the perfect place. With so much to offer brides and grooms on their wedding day, we thought we'd take a closer look at just some of the reasons why we think you'll fall in love with Braxted Park.

1. The House

Let's start with the focal point of this breathtaking estate, shall we? This exquisite country house sits proudly overlooking the extensive grounds and parkland and boasts a rich history. The elegant décor and impressive red brick exterior convey this perfectly, providing a wealth of picturesque locations for your wedding photography. The Walled Garden, which is home to the contemporary Pavilion, lies to the side of the house and offers plenty of space to enjoy your guests company, while the mansion creates an imposing backdrop for you to enjoy throughout the day.

2. The Gardens and Grounds

The estate of Braxted Park began its life way back in 1342 as a deer park which belonged to the Countess of Pembroke. Over the centuries, the estate's numerous owners have extended and added to the grounds, making them the fantastic feature that they are today. Now the 2,00-acre park boasts a wonderful array of features and locations for couples to enjoy with their guests on their wedding day. Most notable perhaps is the tranquil lake, which lies just a short stroll from the mansion, the manicured lawns that are ideal for a drinks reception, or the exquisite Lower Walled Knot Garden, which boasts an array of photo opportunities amongst its carefully designed gardens.

3. The Choice of Ceremony Options

With so many options for your wedding ceremony, Braxted Park really does provide something for everyone. Couples can tie the knot in awe-inspiring Orangery, with its beautiful, mural-decorated walls and views out over the grounds, or exchange vows al fresco in front of the delightful gazebo in the Lower Walled Knot Garden. This wonderful spot comes to life in the spring and summer, providing a tranquil and intimate location to say ‘I do' and enjoy the good weather. There's also the charming All Saints Church which lies within the Braxted Park Estate so that couples can have a religious ceremony just a short stroll away from the magnificent country house.

4. The Versatility

The sheer size of Braxted Park may fool you into thinking that it only caters for grand weddings with hundreds of guests, but the versatility and choice that the venue offers make just as perfect for hosting an intimate and smaller celebration too. The Orangery and Lantern Room can be used to create an unforgettable day and night for between 30 and 50 guests and provide traditional and grand settings for you and your nearest and dearest.

The versatility of this delightful country house venue also makes it the perfect setting for a range of ethnic and cultural weddings. Braxted Park is capable of seating up to 350 guests so it's ideal for large parties, and also offers venue only or ‘dry venue' hire which means that you can have more freedom when it comes to caterers and bar facilities.
