About

YOUR VERY OWN COUNTRY ESTATE

At Chafford Park, we enable you to create your perfect midweek or weekend wedding, with two beautiful wedding barns, the Hop Barn for your ceremony which is fully licensed for marriages and the Granary Barn for your reception.

CEREMONIES

However you choose to get married, Chafford Park can accommodate you. We have a variety of spaces for you to choose from to have the ceremony you have always dreamed of.

The Hop Barn provides a chapel-like ambience and is fully licensed for your wedding ceremony. Its grand high walls and intimate seating arrangement create a magical setting for you and your guests. The barn is tall and very light with a modern style. Equipped with chairs and furniture for your ceremony, featuring bespoke beautiful mirrors and hand-made antler chandeliers.

Our ancient woodland is for nature lovers. An intimate space for sixty guests situated in a small clearing surrounded by tall trees and bluebells in spring. Likened to an amphitheatre, it is the most beautiful setting for you and your closest family and friends. In order to arrive at the ceremony here, you will make your way down through our meadow field and over the wooden bridge.

For larger ceremonies, we have an area in our meadow field situated under a large beautiful oak tree. Here, you can create a larger seated ceremony area with beautiful wildflowers surrounding you just a short walk from the barns.

If you wish to get married in a local church, you may use the Hop Barn for your welcome drinks and canapes.

RECEPTION

The Granary Barn is a beautiful, large barn decorated with shimmering fairy lights to give your wedding the most romantic ambience. The copper bar brings elegance and charm to the room with glowing amber Palermo chandeliers.

The Granary Barn is designed to dazzle your guests from dawn until dusk! Featuring a state-of-the-art Zone Array speaker system, for the most memorable evening entertainment. The space is fully equipped with large round tables and French-style cross-back chairs, ready for you to add the finishing touch!

J&N'23 at Chafford Park

We knew we wanted to hold our big day at Chafford Park as soon as we first visited the previous spring. We always wanted a venue which was a blank canvas that we could put our own stamp on and it was perfect for this, with the two beautiful barns for us to dress and decorate for the ceremony and wedding breakfast and free reign on our choice of cater, but with a emphasis on trying to keep it local which we liked. The journey for the bridal party from the house to the ceremony barn is beautiful too, passed the pond and through the trees.

As we both work in events we loved having the bell tents as the backdrop for our friends to stay in and having the fire pits and festoon at night time gave the outside area a real festival feel.
It was also a big plus that we could stay on site for two nights - we legally got married on the Friday with a small group of family and friends and then cooked a big meal in the house that night.

Alicia and Sarah were helpful and prompt with any queries in the lead up and we’re very grateful to Charlotte who made sure everything ran smoothly for us on the day itself too.

We hope to return one day for a glamping weekend and to reminisce.

Hostile, uncompromising and disrespectful

Despite the stunning facade of this venue, its owners and managers are incredibly rude, making planning and having a wedding at Chafford Park an uncomfortable experience.

On our first visit before booking, we loved what the venue offered and how beautiful it was. Sarah the owner was pleasant and kind and we consequently booked a week later.
However after booking, there followed 12 months of terrible communication, pulling back on previous promises made and generally being very uncompromising with our plans.
We didn’t feel Sarah or her daughter Alicia were on our side at any point and felt that they were more concerned about keeping their venue pristine than helping people have a beautiful wedding.

We had such a magical wedding day, despite them. Our guests and vendors contributed to an incredible day and I didn’t feel stressed at all. But behind the scenes, our catering staff and wedding coordinator were having to deal with so much hostility from the managers. They came in, in the middle of service to tell the staff that the kitchen area was too messy!! So incredibly rude and completely unprofessional. And this was only one incident amongst many that I heard post wedding where they were rude and disrespectful towards vendors and guests alike.

You are also obliged to partner with Wild Box to serve the drinks when you book this venue - they work closely with Chafford Park so essentially are almost as hostile. There are many things that you can’t do - put up your own decorations, bring your own alcohol or have a campfire past midnight. We luckily found our way around all of this but they made the whole thing so difficult and uncomfortable.

I would encourage anyone to not be lured in by the beautiful surroundings and look elsewhere if you want a more friendly and compromising service.

The perfect full-weekend wedding venue!

We had the most amazing wedding at Chafford Park! It really is the most stunning venue, especially in June when everything is in full bloom. We really wanted as many of our friends to be able to stay with us across the whole weekend and this venue offered just that. The Glamping tents were a huge hit with our guests and the long barn where we stayed was beautiful (and perfect for getting all the girls glammed up on the big day!) Being able to access the venue from Friday morning until Sunday midday meant we could fully enjoy time with firends and family who had travelled so far to be with us.

Alicia and Sarah were so helpful, making sure everything was just as we wanted it and that the day ran smoothly. We couldn’t have pictured a more perfect place for our wedding and can’t wait to return for some more glamping in the years to come!

A wedding day of our dreams

Could not recommend Chafford Park more. It is such a beautiful venue and the team are constantly improving and adding extra touches to the venue.

I loved the ability to chose our own caterers - I was able to bring in my African heritage by choosing an African caterer and it really made the day feel unique and special to us.

The sound system is unusual but once you are underneath it, it is great. We worked with a recommend DJ and saxophonist from Mint DJs who were really great and got the party started.

The added touch of having rooms on site for the family really made it easier. We were able to have a lovely family dinner the night before and able to enjoy the farm for the full three days.

Really was our dream day and we are so grateful.

Perfect wedding day

Where to start...what a beautiful wedding venue. So picturesque and relaxed. The grounds feel luxurious and private without losing the homely aspects we wanted for our special day. We knew when we looked at Chafford Park that it was the perfect place for our wedding. Sarah, Alicia and Catherine are an excellent team who have an eye for detail and really made sure we were looked after throughout the lead up and on the day. All questions are answered promptly and with care. The landscaped area around the stunning barns provide a perfect backdrop for photos and the barns made the most intimate space for our ceremony and reception. We are so grateful for the time and care to make our day so special. Highly recommend to go and view Chafford park and find out why it is just so special.

Amazing venue and team

Amazing venue for our wedding in the summer. Alicia and Sarah worked really hard to make sure we had the best day possible. Both the indoor and outdoor ceremony areas are beautiful and the main barn is a perfect setting for food and dancing. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

Perfect day

Even though we had torrential rain on the day, Catie and Sarah made the day flow really well. All staff were incredible and so friendly. The grounds are incredible too. We wanted a laid back wedding with a slight rustic vibe and this delivered! Thank you all, I just wish I could do it all again xx

Beautiful venue

We instantly fell in love with Chafford Park when we visited and knew it was perfect for our low key wedding. Sarah and Alicia took the time to explain exactly what was possible and they were always extremely friendly and flexible to accommodate what we wanted/on hand to answer any questions (no matter how silly!) It’s a beautiful place for either a relaxed, low key wedding or something more lavish.

Our dream venue, thank you!

We recently celebrated our wedding at Chafford Park, and it was an absolute dream!

The team's dedication to making our wedding unforgettable, from the initial planning stages to the last dance, the staff demonstrated a fabulous level of commitment. They took care of every detail, ensuring that our vision came to life seamlessly.

Our guests couldn't stop raving about the stunning venue. The charm of the barns, coupled with the picturesque surroundings, created a warm and romantic atmosphere that perfectly complemented our day. The natural beauty of Chafford Park added an extra layer of magic to our celebration, making the entire weekend feel like a fairytale. Waking up in the long barn was nothing short of glorious. The tranquillity of the setting and the connection with nature created a serene and peaceful atmosphere. It was the perfect way to start our journey as a married couple.

We loved having the use of two barns one for the ceremony and the other for our reception and the transition from one space to another was seamless, and it made the entire event flow effortlessly. We appreciated the thoughtfulness behind this arrangement, allowing us to savour every moment without any stress.

Our experience at Chafford Park was beyond our wildest dreams. If you're looking for a venue that combines natural beauty, thoughtful design, and a dedicated team, Chafford Park is the perfect choice.

Out of this world!

Chafford Park is a beautiful hidden gem in the glorious English countryside. From the moment we visited, we felt welcomed and really put at ease by the team and the family. The grounds are stunning, with so many opportunities to explore and capture our favourite moments!
With of having use of the two spacious barns to use we were able to really bring our vision to life, and the day panned out perfectly. The venue hire includes the day before your wedding to set everything up, and we booked to stay in the onsite accommodation in the Long Barn (a must!), which really put my nerves at ease knowing that everything was taken care of before the day.

Sarah and the team were extremely helpful, ensuring we had everything we needed for the day. All of our suppliers went above and beyond, the waiting and bar team were super attentive and great fun!

We had so many of our guests commenting on the venue, the service and the day itself, we just couldn't have asked for more.

We honestly couldn't have imagined our day being any better, we are still on a high from the entire day and cannot recommend this venue highly enough. Thank you so much!!

Unique, personal, family run stunning venue

Chafford Park is such a unique venue and was the perfect place for our intimate micro wedding. I love the fact it’s family run and not a generic wedding churning machine. They are really flexible and do everything to help your vision come together. Particularly a special thanks to Alicia who was fantastic and so helpful every step of the way. The house where we stayed was beautiful and fully equipped to have a fab pre-wedding dinner the night before, and the bed was the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in!! It was great to have so many options for where we could have our ceremony and wedding breakfast (especially helpful when the weather can be unpredictable) we got lucky with the weather so were able to have our ceremony in the ancient woodland, it was magical. The wild meadows were the perfect backdrop for our photographs and the barn looked so beautiful all set up for a meal. We couldn’t have wished for a better place to have our wedding!

Outstanding venue & overall experience

By far the most beautiful wedding location I have been to. The estate owners and staff were so professional and truly went above and beyond to make my sisters wedding the most special day of her life. Thank you Sarah, Alicia and the team! X

Beautiful venue in stunning grounds

We were lucky enough to be blessed with sunshine on our wedding day which meant we got to explore the lovely grounds, but even if not the two barns are just stunning. Surrounded in fairy lights but with such well thought through final touches, like the copper top bar and chandeliers which are just stunning!

Paradise in the English countryside

Chafford Park is simply the most fantastic venue. We originally booked for our wedding in June 2020 and subsequently had to twice rearrange. Sarah and Alicia could not have done more to help us through it; they are two of the nicest hosts one could ever hope for.

The setting itself is absolutely breathtaking. The surrounding countryside is magical and the Manor House just has to be seen to be believed. Everywhere was clean and tidy, everything functioned as it should and the only hitch of the weekend was between my wife and I!

I really cannot speak highly enough of this place and the people who run it. I would recommend it to anyone.
