Unique wedding venue Essex / Suffolk Boarder

Most venues request that you use their own caterers, their own bar staff and buy drinks at bar prices - We don’t.

Most venues ask you to finish by midnight – We don’t.

Most venues don’t want you on site until the wedding day.

With us you can arrive the day before to get everything ready

What our  customers are saying:

"What a absolutely wonderful day. Beautiful grounds, fabulous marquee in an amazing setting. We were able to bring our own drinks, and organise our own caterers, which saved us a fortune compared to comparable sites".
