My Daughter's Wedding 8th February 2020
Channels was the venue for my Daughter's Wedding on Saturday 8th Feb. what a stunning day it was. Held in the Barn, Big Channels, the surroundings are simply beautiful. The reception was magnificent, great organisation and professionalism from all the staff, especially Molly, who co-ordinated everything to the smallest detail. wonderful food, thank you Chef, served by a brigade of very friendly and efficient servers. Great Bar Staff, who worked tirelessly, and always had a smile. The accommodation in the Lodge was also top class.Sent on 10/02/2020
All on all, a truly wonderful occasion, a venue that I cannot rate or recommend highly enough. Thank you again Molly and Chloè, the Event's Organisers.

Thank you! You guys are great! x
We fell in love with this venue the day we first visited 18 months ago. We were shown around very professionally and at no point felt any pressure to book a date. However within a week of visiting other venues we knew Channels & the Essex Barn was our dream venue.Sent on 25/10/2019
The day its self was truly wonderful from the start to the finish. The wedding team could not do enough and the food, well simply the best! My only regret is I'll never be able to do it all again, so in a way I'm chuffed I choose Channels for my wedding day.
