Gaynes Park is an elegant and stylish barn wedding and reception venue set in a historic private estate. It is approached up a long entrance drive through park and farmland with sweeping views over the London skyline. Just 10 minutes from the M25 and M11, Gaynes Park is one of the most beautiful exclusive use venues in Essex. From the moment you arrive you will be enchanted by the outstanding facilities, relaxed elegance and beautiful surroundings that Gaynes Park offers.
The Orangery, set within the walled garden, with its long garden ‘aisle’, was built on the site where a Victorian conservatory once stood. Its wooden beams and many windows create a light filled space and contemporary setting for your civil ceremony or partnership. Afterwards it is an ideal setting in all seasons for drinks receptions.
The listed Mill Barn is an impressive setting filled with natural light. Up to 150 guests can be seated for your wedding breakfast and up to 200 for the evening reception. It is supported by four old tree trunks, has floor-to-ceiling windows, a mezzanine level and a licensed bar and dance floor. Outside the Mill Barn, the open-sided Gather Barn provides a covered area where you can hold an outdoor civil ceremony or partnership, or have a barbecue in the evening.
The charming Apple Loft Cottage awaits your arrival and can be used before the ceremony to get ready in and at any point during the day to freshen up.
The Coach House, located nearby, is available for you and your guests, if required, on the night of the wedding. With 10 luxurious en-suite bedrooms and a stunning large reception area with comfortable seating and dining area to enjoy breakfast the next morning.
Gaynes Park are delighted to announce that they are now taking bookings for show rounds. To arrange your private show round, please call 01992 660329.

Heartless unhelpful venue
After booking this venue back in March 2020 we have had nothing but problems and have found Gaynes Park very unhelpful and inflexible despite the current situation. For the past 7+ months we have been trying to get a postponement of our date (which with 7 weeks to go we have still not achieved)Sent on 14/06/2021
We are currently £10,000 out of pocket with nothing to show for it, we haven’t had so much as a planning meeting to discuss our day and despite offering an events tasting when we booked this has still not happened (They will still chase down the money at the first opportunity though)
In my opinion they are profiteering of the back of a pandemic and do not care about the couples that book here!!!
We have tried to be flexible and have even offered to pay an uplift in costs to move our date to 2022 which has also been denied.

The whole day was terrific
The whole day was terrific and so many guests said it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. We put a lot of effort into planning the day and the team did such a great job bringing it all to life for us.Sent on 15/05/2019
We wouldn't recommend a venue for the most important day of someone's life unless we had every confidence in it. We would not hesitate to recommend Gaynes Park as a venue because we know that any wedding held there would be fantastic.

Best day ever
I cannot thank Gaynes Park enough for their service before, during, and after the wedding. We saw the venue three times in total before the wedding. We visited once and then again to book and then once more for the food tasting.Sent on 15/10/2018
They were always in contact with us when we had any last minute questions or concerns about how our day would go. The team at Gaynes Park and their caterer Galloping Gourmet made our day fantastic, helping every step of the way from getting ready in the Apple Cottage to walking down the aisle, to the speeches. They all knew what they were doing even when me and my bridesmaids were goofing off and weren't always sure what to do.
The venue is stunning, the staff helpful and the food delicious. Wish I could relive my day again, but the memories will last me a lifetime.
