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.

If you are planning a cultural wedding, it is possible to hire Braxted Park on a dry-hire basis. This allows you to arrange your own catering and bar requirements, using the Pavilion’s large capacity to plan the wedding you’ve always wanted in a stunning location. Dry hire of Braxted Park is perfect for Asian, Jewish, Afro-Caribbean, Turkish and other cultural weddings.

    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!
    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.

    It was the perfect day!

    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!

    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

    Literally was the best day ever!!

    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
