About Gaynes Park

Banks Lane, Coopersale, Epping
Essex, CM16 7RJ

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.

The whole day was terrific
Venue Service

By Carl and Marc, on 15 May 2019Date of Wedding - 09 Mar 2019

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. 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
Venue Service

By Corinna Miller, on 15 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Oct 2018

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. 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.

It all was just a dream
Venue Service

By Mark and Lee, on 25 May 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Oct 2017

I honestly cannot think of anything that could have made our day better. From the early days of consulting our wedding day with lovely Yvonne right up to the big day, our coordinators did an incredible job of making the whole day flow freely and without any worries, making sure that we were catered to as well as every single one of our guests, it all was just a dream. Everyone at Gaynes Park, from the Event Planners, to the catering staff, to the waiters, to the coordinators, all do such an amazing job and they all should be recognized.

Our day really was just so perfect, it was just amazing, I’m so so pleased we had Chloe she for me made my wedding day flow so brilliantly – I felt I clicked with her from the beginning and I had so much trust in her. Can’t thank Chloe enough x

Absolutely perfect
Venue Service

By Gemma and Steven, on 25 May 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Jul 2017

Our experience was absolutely perfect and we wouldn’t change a thing. The staff, the venue, the food and drink all made our day perfect. Our friends and family still talk about our day and the service they received.

An amazing venue

Gaynes park is an amazing venue, the staff are fantastic and have been an absolute pleasure from start to finish.

Gaynes Park staff went over and above
Venue Service

By Emily and Tom, on 25 May 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Mar 2017

Gaynes Park staff went over and above what we thought they would do. What really touched me was the 2 barmen at the end escorting/carrying my grandad back to his room at the end of the night because his feet were so painful from being on them all day. I didn’t even ask, they saw he was in pain and came rushing over to offer their assistance.

Perfect venue
Venue Service

By Chris and Maria Moore, on 28 Jul 2015

Although the venue, grounds, accommodation, the food and the drink were absolutely fantastic, I feel that the real high point of Gaynes Park were the staff! As soon as we booked Gaynes Park, the attentiveness and the support from the team has been fantastic. The day before the wedding we dropped off the decorations and other bits to be used on our wedding day, which was all beautifully arranged by Natasha and her team. Natasha was very approachable and was in control of everything throughout the day. All of the catering staff were fantastic! Our wine glasses were constantly being refilled! One of the events staff, sadly we didn't get his name, was extremely attentive to my wife and I and also to our friends and family at the top table. Once he knew my best man and myself are keen red wine drinkers, he left us the whole bottle rather than topping up! The service by all the staff was spot on and we could not have asked for more attentive, pleasant and diligent people. Our only disappointment is that we will never get another chance to get married at this venue again!

I wish I could do it all again!

Everything went as planned!
Venue Service

By Sian and Richard, on 29 Nov 2012

To the team at Gaynes Park, Thankyou for helping so much to make our day perfect. Everything went exactly as we hoped it would - the sun was shining, all our loved ones were there and the ceremony was beautiful. All our guests commented on the venue, the food (one said the crispy duck salad was the best thing he'd ever eaten!) and everything more besides. The staff were so attentive, nothing was too much trouble for them. It is all these reasons and more that I truly believe there is no better place than Gaynes Park to have a wedding. Love

Thanks to the team!
