About Braxted Park

Braxted Park Estate, Great Braxted
Witham, Essex
Essex, CM8 3EN

This magnificent manor house set in thousands of acres of stunning grounds and parkland is easily one of the finest Essex wedding venues and will provide a special day full of grandeur and elegance. 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 is a new addition to this delightful Essex wedding venue and 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.  Vegetarians and vegans also have a delicious plant-based menu to choose from. 

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. There's even a secluded garden with incredible views to enjoy as you wish. 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.

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!

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!)

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

You will not be disappointed!
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!

Above and Beyond

We will always remember our perfect day & the people who helped make it the best day of our lives.

Ran like Clock Work
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Cameron, on 28 Aug 2015

I would like to thank you and all your team for your meticulous planning and delivery of our very special day last Friday, it truly was a day we will never forget, and you guys are a big part of that. Clare and I are were very impressed with the level of service provided to us on the day and also in the lead up to the wedding. We thought the planning was excellent, we felt totally at ease that everything was in hand and under control, it really made the week before the wedding a fairly stress free experience. We had a lot of comments on how amazing the venue was and how well run the day was. I would highly recommend Braxted Park as a venue for a wedding / party to anyone, part of this recommendation would be based on the service and commitment shown by yourselves and the staff involved on the day. Janet, I must say was lovely and made Clare and I feel totally as ease, she was a true star. The whole day ran like clock work, everything was faultless. Thank you

We will treasure it forever more
Venue Service

By Sam and Nikhil, on 25 Aug 2015

Thank you for all your help and hard work with our wedding. If it was not for you, the day would not have been as wonderful as it was. Thank you for putting up with all my emails and requests. Braxted Park was an amazing place to get married and we will treasure it forever. The attention to detail was second to none and we can't thank you enough

Really do go that extra mile
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Wlison, on 10 Jul 2015

We held our daughter’s wedding at Braxted Park last Friday and we just wanted to place on record our sincere thanks to everyone, and for everything that was done in such a professional and helpful way. Nothing was ever too much bother or trouble to any member of staff, and we would also like to make special mention of 3 ladies. From our initial meeting with Michelle, then the prewedding meeting with Victoria, then Tiffany overseeing everything on the day, everything was arranged and executed to perfection. All of the bar staff were always on the ball looking for people to serve, the catering staff were very attentive and all done with a smile on their face and in an extremely courteous manner. I am sure you are well aware of the quality of the staff that you have at Braxted Park, and you really do “go that extra mile.”
