Beautiful location

“We were the first couple to get married in the summer house in Colchester. The day was absolutely amazing from start to finish, the staff were extremely helpful and lovely. I would recommend anyone who is thinking of having an outdoor wedding to consider it. Beautiful location. Also can have all photos in the castles grounds.”

I wasnt disappointed

“My husband to be selected the venue and I wasn't disappointed. Staff were fantastic and answered my endless questions and were prompt to reply to emails. This made the whole wedding organisation process much less stressful than I had imagined .On the day everything was perfect, the flowers and the table settings, the food was delicious and our overseas guests were very impressed with the wine. All the feedback from the guests was positive from the actual venue and how wonderful it was to be able to roam around the castle to the catering staff who were excellent and very professional. A big thank you for making the day so wonderful and stress free.”
