This magnificent manor house set in thousands of acres of stunning grounds and parkland is easily one of the finest wedding venues in Essex and will provide a special day full of grandeur and elegance for you and your guests. The venue makes an instant impression as you enter the gates, set at the end of a sweeping, torch-lit drive, and continues to impress throughout every aspect of your wedding day.

The stylish space offers plenty of room to get ready, a private bathroom and shower, and a number of long mirrors for putting the finishing touches to your look. Best of all, it's just a few steps through the Lantern Room to the Orangery from this calm and relaxing setting.

The Pavilion, also located with the gardens, is a grand and contemporary setting for your wedding breakfast and evening reception. It's an incredibly versatile space, capable of accommodating wedding parties of all sizes, and comes fully equipped with a dancefloor, well-stocked bar and state-of-the-art sound and lighting system to make the perfect place to celebrate in style.

It was the perfect day!
Venue Service

By Stephanie, on 23 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Sep 2018

Laurence and I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone at Braxted Park. We got married at your beautiful venue in September and it was the perfect day. From the moment we first looked round and met Victoria we knew we were going to have the most magical wedding day and that’s exactly what we got. Every single member of staff from the lead up to on the day were so friendly and helpful. Thank you so much to Janet who looked after us on the day. You were nonstop all day, making sure that everyone in attendance was looked after. Nothing was too much trouble and you really did make our day run so smoothly. We were so lucky to have you with us. It really does make a difference when the venue you get married at treats your wedding like their own, Braxted Park is such an amazing place.

Fantastic venue

Fantastic venue, lovely inside & out. Loved the garden lighting & we were lucky that it was just about warm enough wearing a coat or a wrap to stroll round them when they were lit up. Delicious food, Friendly staff & also very helpful when we had taxi problem.

Our day was absolutely perfect

Adam and I could not have asked for anymore from Braxted Park for our wedding on March 25th. The staff were fantastic in the lead up to the big day and they made sure our day ran seamlessly from start to finish. Our day was absolutely perfect and we had so many compliments on the venue. Get married here. It really is a stunning venue with so much to offer.

Absolute perfection!

My husband and I got married in Braxted Park on November 4th. Our experience from start to finish exceeded all expectations, absolute perfection! Victoria showed us around and made sure everything was organised before the day, she really made us feel like we were in safe hands. Tiffany was with us on the day and ensured that everything ran smoothly, I could relax fully on the day knowing she was around. All the members of staff are so friendly and many of our guests commented on this. The venue itself is breath taking, I loved the orangery and pavilion and the grounds outside are so picturesque. The bridal cottage is also amazing. Everyone had the best time and that's all thanks to the Braxted Park staff and the way the venue is run. We couldn't ask for a better start to married life, thank you so much!!! Xxx

It was the best day of our lives!
Venue Service

By Emma Louise, on 24 May 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Oct 2017

Our wedding was held at Braxted Park on the 14th October and we can honestly say it was the best day of our lives! We truly believe we found our dream venue and it lived up to everything we wanted and more. As soon as we came to visit it last October, we knew straight away we didn’t need to see any other venues-we had found the one. Not only is it absolutely gorgeous but the staff were amazing from day 1. Michelle was very helpful from the first day we came to visit and was always on hand to answer any questions we had (and there was a lot!). We were blown away by Jonathon and Caroline on the day, as we believe they played a lead role in making our wedding run smoothly from start to finish. Nothing we asked for was too much trouble and it meant we could relax and enjoy the day Bolly and I would 100% recommend this venue to any couple looking to get married and wish we could find another excuse to come back! Thank you x

The staff were excellent

Literally was the best day ever!!
Venue Service

By Hannah, on 24 May 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Aug 2017

My wedding was here on the 28th August, words cannot explain how perfect the whole day was. I can't imagine how stressful getting married would have been without the help from everyone at Braxted Park! They made everything so easy and helped through every step. The day ran like clockwork but all of our guest praised us on what a relaxed day it was, that was all down to the careful planning going on behind the scenes. They went above and beyond to make sure every last person was happy, comfortable especially my husband and I. Couldn't imagine having our special day anywhere else. Literally was the best day ever!! Highly recommend this venue

Absolutely amazing!
Venue Service

By Jade, on 24 May 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Aug 2017

My sister got married here on 24th August and it was absolutely amazing! Johnathan was brilliant and so helpful and all staff were lovely. The grounds are stunning and had a great flow for all of the different parts of the wedding. We also stayed in the rooms at the venue which are lovely - breakfast was amazing in the morning. A huge thank you for making the day such a memorable one (if I got married again, it would be here!)

Its an amazing venue

I got married at Braxted park on the 6th August, words can’t honestly express how amazing the day was and how beautiful the grounds are! The staff were exceptional and helped us with every detail and were so lovely and friendly. Our front of house manager was amazing! Honestly it’s an amazing venue, now looking back at my wedding pictures I’m amazed at how lovely everything was! Definitely would recommend to everyone x

By Stacey, on 24 May 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Jul 2017

How do you even begin to thank them!! Braxted Park was amazing from start to finish, the grounds are absolutely stunning, the people are so kind and helpful! Was lucky enough to deal with Victoria, Carol & Jonathan and they were THE BEST! All of our wedding guests commented on how lovely all of the staff were and how they hadn't been to a wedding like it! Nothing was too much trouble! We had the most amazing day all thanks to them and cannot praise them enough for everything they done! So organised, so calm - everything was PERFECT! I would recommend to EVERYONE! This is THE venue to book!! You won't regret it! Thanks so much again Braxted! A day we will never forget

Venue Service

By Rachelle, on 24 May 2018Date of Wedding - 06 May 2017

My husband and I were married at Braxted Park on 6th May 2017 and we could not have asked for the day to have been any better! From the moment we first visited Braxted Park we both knew it was the venue for us - the level of service & support received both from Victoria during our first viewing through to the day itself, along with Jonathan our front of house manager, was exceptional! The day ran without a hitch allowing us both to relax and enjoy the day - this could not have been happened without the efforts and support of Victoria and Jonathan. The venue itself is stunning and was a perfect size and layout for the day we had in mind. Having All Saints Church on site was the icing on the cake. Highly recommend this venue to anybody planning their wedding - you will not be disappointed!
