This magnificent manor house set in thousands of acres of stunning grounds and parkland is easily one of the finest Essex wedding venues. 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.
Braxted Park offers a choice of breathtaking ceremony options: the remarkable Orangery, complete with dramatic Roman-inspired décor and views over the lawns, or the charming summer house, set in the idyllic Walled Garden, which is ideal for saying ‘I do' al fresco. There is even a church within the estate just a short stroll from the house which is perfect for a religious ceremony.
The bright and luxurious bridal changing room provides the ideal spot to prepare yourself with your bridesmaids before your ceremony. 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.
Bask in your picturesque surroundings with a drinks reception in the beautiful Walled Garden, mingling with guests around tranquil water features and blooming flower beds. 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.
Exceptional food and service of the highest order are at the heart of every wedding at Braxted Park, making sure that your special day is perfectly tailored to your needs. Braxted Park Kitchen, the in-house team, headed by Executive Chef Evan Marshall, offers a number of exciting catering options including fine dining style dishes or even an American BBQ served at your table.
Completing this spectacular wedding venue is the Garden Cottage. The wonderful red brick building boasts two luxurious bedrooms, a spacious lounge and an elegant décor to help you relax. Plenty of space means that the Garden Cottage is perfect for the groomsmen to prepare before the ceremony, and the Prosecco-filled fridge will certainly go down a treat as they’re getting ready. There are a further 12 en-suite bedrooms available too, located in the former stables in a peaceful part of the estate.

A Dream Come True
From the moment we turned into the driveway and saw the magnificent house, we knew that Braxted Park was where we wanted to get married. After being shown around and being blown away by this beautiful venue and stunning gardens, we wasted no time in booking our wedding date. In the lead up to the day we were so looked after by the incredible staff at Braxted Park but a special mention to Victoria who answered every question and accommodated my many visits back to the venue. From our food & wine tasting to our final planning meeting I was never in any doubt that the team had everything in hand; nothing was too much to ask for!Sent on 26/01/2020
When the day arrived we were so relaxed because we knew that every detail was being taken care of and Caroline was so helpful. It was the most perfect day that we will never forget and we cannot thank the Braxted Park staff enough. The service on the day was incredible and all of our guests were so complimentary.
We are so grateful to have been able to celebrate our marriage at Braxted Park, it really was a dream come true.
