At Baddow Park House, your day is just the beginning, we work with you to create an event, a spectacle, an unforgettable and joyous celebration for you and your guests.

From your first visit to Baddow Park House, it will become clear that your wedding is as special to us as it is to you. When you are here, this house is your home.

Every wedding we create is unique. The versatility of our spaces means we can accommodate any wedding from the most luxurious, intimate occasion to a full on, 150 guest celebration and beyond!

Throughout the house you’ll find sumptuous textures, hidden spaces, stylish décor, all creating the perfect blend of luxury and traditional for you to embrace and embellish with your own style.

For smaller cosy weddings, our Oak Room is perfect for up to 50 guests with its open fireplace and wood panelling or take advantage of the incredible light and sweeping views of the Drawing Room which can accommodate up to 80 guests.

Our recently renovated Orangery is without doubt an iconic and show stopping space, that can be transformed to suit your requirements. Seating up to 150 guests, it’s stunning natural light and space can be enhanced further by opening up the wall of bi-folding doors revealing the perfect views across the terrace to the vineyards beyond . This seamless balance between indoors and outdoors means the Orangery is the perfect room for any season, with gorgeous summer wedding days or crispy Autumnal evenings both perfectly suited to it.

Our fully stocked bar is just stunning – mixing art deco styling with modern technology, it’s a meeting point, a focal point and and real talking point at any wedding.

The Orangery can be turned around from day to evening with minimal fuss, meaning your guests can continue their festivities into the night with no need to relocate.


Our gardens are an integral part of our venue and have been designed to provide you, with a little help from us, with the opportunity to really go to town on any al fresco elements of your wedding.

They simply flow from The Orangery, and as you step out onto the natural stone terrace, you start to realise the potential that these gorgeous open spaces offer for a truly unique wedding event.

Many of our couples make the most of the perfectly crafted pavilion and say their vows outside, our Log Shed Bar provides the perfect location for a pre or post ceremony cocktail and even has its own pizza oven and BBQ.

Then as the sun starts to set, head into our whimsical woodland to discover our fire-pit. Toast marshmallows and sip finest hot chocolate and liqueurs while you share old stories and create new memories under the stars.

We are proud of our stunning gardens and find it so hard to do them justice in words and pictures! We would love to welcome you as our guest for a private viewing so you can share our excitement and start getting creative for your big day plans. If you dream of it happening, we will make it a reality.

At Baddow Park House we have 11 bedrooms that have been totally renovated and redecorated in keeping with our eclectic style. Always being respectful to the house’s heritage and history we have created rooms that perfectly blend comfort and style. The finest linens, super stylish wallpapers and feature beds all combine to leave you safe in the knowledge that when it is finally time to call it a night your slumber is guaranteed.

    A one-of-a-kind wedding venue with attention to detail at its heart

    As soon as you set eyes on Baddow Park House, there really is no going back. Following a turbulent few months and postponing our wedding date for a second time, we came across a newly transformed and renovated venue that was full of character and full of heart. It is a truly one-of-a-kind venue that will forever hold a special place in our heart, and in the heart of our family and guests.

    With beautiful rolling grounds perfect on a sunny day, and charming rooms in the house, luxury bedrooms for our guests, and the most breathtaking orangery for our ceremony and wedding breakfast, there wasn’t a box that couldn’t be ticked. From the biggest renovations, such as the extraordinary Orangery or the newly built Salon, to the smallest of touches, such as the luxury glassware or the incredible scent of White Company filling every room, the phrase ‘above and beyond’ epitomises everything Baddow Park House stands for. It takes a very special place to have such a large house and extensive grounds but to feel so wonderfully intimate at the same time. The attention to detail blew us away, and the truly incredible time, effort and customer service put into our day from Kelly, Gaynor, Phil, Jo and the team was more than we could have ever wished for. The wealth of knowledge and experience shared across the team ensured our day ran like clockwork and we can’t thank you enough for giving us our dream wedding day in such a beautiful venue. It was truly magical.
