Excellent Venue

By Barry, on 25 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 13 Apr 2018

Colchester Town Hall is an excellent venue, and I cannot recommend the wedding support team highly enough. We released early that our event requirements were in safe hands, with good communications throughout. The day of the wedding went smoothly, and we all enjoyed it immensely. A big thanks to the planning team (especially Sheldon), the caterers, the DJ and anyone else involved.

Amazing photos

“Colchester Events Company is a really efficient and friendly company, and Sheldon was amazing at organising our Wedding Ceremony in the Moot Hall, Colchester Town Hall in February 2018. Everything went smoothly thanks to the team. We had the most wonderful Wedding Ceremony at this venue and our professional photographer was able to take some amazing photos in the Town Hall as it is a beautiful setting for photos. Thank you to Sheldon and everyone at Colchester Events Company!.”

Extremely happy with our whole experience
Venue Service

By Susan Lynds, on 30 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2017

From the first time that we walked into the Town Hall to view the wedding venue, we were put at ease from the very start. All staff where very friendly and very, very helpful and we were kept informed throughout the whole process. Our service was very professional but very relaxed and we both felt at ease. We loved our service and were extremely happy with our whole experience within the Town Hall. Ten out of ten from Mr and Mrs S Lynds.

The staff were helpful and friendly
Venue Service

By Roberta Rowland Fox, on 30 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 30 Jun 2017

Colchester Town Hall is a lovely building & we are glad we chose it as our wedding venue. It was really helpful to have the use of the car park for our guests. The staff were helpful & friendly & we were particularly impressed with Sheldon who really went out of his way to make sure things were as we wanted them.

A wow factor venue
Venue Service

By Rebecca Gill, on 30 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 17 Jun 2017

Sam and the guys at the Town Hall helped us create the most perfect and special day which turned out better than I had initially imagined. Seeing the Moot Hall fully dressed for our wedding was breath taking. So many of my guests congratulated me on picking a wow factor venue.

We couldnt have asked for anything more
Venue Service

By Jackie Lazzam, on 30 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 13 Jun 2017

From start to finish it has been a pleasure. We couldn't have asked for more on our wedding gift day. We thought the Town Hall was beautiful and our guests thought so to. It has such character.

A beautiful venue

The Moot Hall at Colchester Town Hall is a beautiful venue, perfect for our wedding reception.

A lovely venue
Venue Service

By Karen Isgrove, on 30 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 20 May 2017

We had a lovely day. The people at the town hall were always on hand to answer questions and the day ran very smoothly! It is a lovely venue and makes you feel very special.

My wedding day was a day to remember
Venue Service

By Lisa and Ashley French, on 19 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 24 Mar 2016

We decided to book our wedding ceremony at the Town Hall because we had previously attended a function there and loved it. The inside of Colchester Town Hall is beautiful, and I love all the detail in there. The rooms are big and the staircases are amazing. I also think the Mayor’s parlour has character which is why I chose to have our wedding ceremony in there. The reception was held in the Moot Hall which had ample room for us to eat and celebrate our marriage. From the moment we booked the wedding, through to our actual wedding day, the staff were amazing. They were always happy to assist us where needed and answer my long list of questions. The Town Hall is also really reasonably priced for such a picturesque venue. We attended a wedding fair at the Town Hall and got most of our wedding suppliers from this. The staff even moved tables and chairs the day before to ensure I was happy with the set up. My wedding day was a day to remember and all our guests commented on how beautiful the town hall was. I would recommend Colchester Town Hall to anyone.

A day we will never forget!
Venue Service

By Rose and Ed Olive, on 19 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Nov 2015

We were really looked after at the Town Hall when we had our wedding ceremony there in November. The team were really helpful in helping us prepare all the little details of the ceremony, from music and flowers, to the legalities and timings. On the actual day we were both so nervous, more than we had anticipated, but the staff put us at ease and were really helpful throughout. All of our guests commented on the beautiful Council Chamber where we got married - it had all the unique beauty of a church wedding but without the religious connotations, plus a really intimate setting for our 65 guests. A day we will never forget!
