    Perfect wedding day

    We had the most magical wedding day. I look back with a big smile on my face. Lisa and her team were fantastic. Everything we asked for was provided. Sian worked her socks off to make everything perfect for us. The food was delicious. The service was fantastic. Karl the DJ was brilliant. Our room was decorated for us. Everything ran just as we wanted it to. I only wish I could live it all again.

    I think it was great value. We'd looked at several other venues but we wanted something simple, beautiful and intimate and that's exactly what we got. Not to mention we didn't want to have to pay the earth for it as whilst a very special day the costs mount up quickly. My husband to be was incredibly nervous so we wanted a small ceremony with all our nearest and dearest but I also didn't want to give up on my dream of the perfect wedding. Thankfully we managed to tick all boxes with the Rose and Crown. My only concern was at the time although a beautiful building there wasn't any greenery back drops for photographs. However we popped up to castle park just up the road which solved that problem and since our wedding in 2019 the Rose and Crown now has a small garden which will be perfect for pictures. I would recommend this venue to anyone and only 2 weeks after our wedding we were back there for a friend's wedding and another friend is getting married there this year. I can't wait to go back and for all the memories to come flooding in.

    Wedding Party

    We got married on the quiet in September, but wanted to have a celebration party which we booked at the Rose & Crown for November.

    Myself and my husband made the right choice in choosing the Rose & Crown, as all of the staff were extremely helpful and polite and the evening was just as we wanted it to be.

    The feedback from our guests was was very positive and they all enjoyed themselves. They loved the venue and the history of the Rose & Crown and the food was delicious.

    We enjoyed it so much, that I suggested to have our works Christmas lunch here in December and it's been booked.

    I cannot give any negative points about the Rose & Crown or the staff and I would certainly recommend any future brides to definitely take a look, you will not be disappointed.

    Thank you all.

    Wedding Day

    My husband and I cannot fault anything during our wedding day at the Rose & Crown, Colchester. From booking our special day right through to the day itself Lisa and the whole team went above and beyond.
    The day itself was simply perfect! Everything ran smoothly and nothing was too much trouble. Sian was absolutely amazing and worked tirelessly the whole day.
    We simply cannot thank them all enough for everything they done for us, our day was truly magically in a beautiful setting.
    Thank you all so much
    Mr & Mrs Wilson
