Hatfield Place is a stunning Georgian country wedding venue located on the South Western border of Hatfield Peverel village, outside Chelmsford, Essex. Nestled amongst wooded grounds, this Grade II listed house offers a perfect location overlooking a delightful walled garden. Beckoning atop a tree-lined driveway, this elegant property holds the promise of a lavish destination wedding as beautiful as its 15-acre oasis.

Facilities and Capacity

Hatfield Place is licensed to hold civil ceremonies in a gorgeous selection of pristine locations, including the iconic Walled Garden and Orangery. The jewel of the property, this verdant space is a harmonious meeting of traditional English country style with chic, modern architecture. Landscaped over three tiers, the garden features a pretty oak pergola where you can exchange vows amid the scents of rose and blossom trees. Overlooking this enchanting area, the Orangery delivers rustic charm in abundance with its natural wood floors and part exposed brick. In this airy setting, enhanced by floor-to-ceiling windows, you can host a memorable wedding breakfast and evening reception for up to 200 guests. Tucked away from the main house, this magical setting ensures complete privacy and exclusivity for your entire wedding event. Elsewhere, a range of versatile spaces awaits within the stately home's grand interiors, each furnished in a contemporary yet graceful style.

Disappointed If Im honest

The lack of communication from this venue is the main issue, I had to chase weeks and sometimes months to get an answer. At our meeting 6 weeks out from the venue we discussed all of what we wanted and how was saw our day doing, I provided Hatfield place with notes at the meeting and followed up with an email the next day. None of my requests had been done. The day of the wedding the groom had to ask where the welcome sign was, the bride had to call the owners of the venue three times as the day of coordinator was no where to be seen and vendors was turning up unable to get into the venue and set up, breakfast hadn't been arranged as discussed and the coordinator arrived around 12:00 when informing us she would be on site from 8am. The Venue itself is beautiful but its not worth the stress that came with it leading up to the day or small issues on the day that we had to ask for. Our guests had a great time and we enjoyed our day but wouldn't recommend this venue.

One in a million

We’ve looked at a lot of venues before choosing Hatfield Place. And I mean…a lot! We covered most of Essex, even Suffolk & Cotswolds and abroad only to find this treasure on our doorsteps.

What this place offers is very unique. In the sense that you get the most amazing venue and grounds and the best team all in one place. They have thought of everything. We first booked this venue in 2019 and got married in 2022 (Thank you Covid).
With every visit we would notice new things added and could see how much the owners care for the place. Each thing seems handpicked to add to the charm of this beautiful place.

There is not one thing I would change about my wedding day and this is coming from a very picky bride 😅.

We would like to simply thank the team once again for making our day so special and ensuring it ran smoothly.

Lots of love from a very happy couple

Now…can we turn back time so we could do it again?!

perfect wedding venue

We booked the venue for my daughters wedding in December 2019 - it combines perfectly the old and the new. The house itself has been superbly refurbished to the highest standard, and the separate rooms meant that people at the drinks reception were able to chat in an intimate and comfortable environment. The orangery where the wedding breakfast and evening reception were held is fantastic, its brand new so everything is catered for - you cant go wrong with this venue and the staff couldn't do enough for us. We had close to 200 guests sitting for dinner and the venue held us all comfortably. I have no hesitation recommending this venue if you want the ideal reception to your special day. We had no complaints what so ever. if it helps here is a trailer to the wedding which shows how lovely the venue is ….....

My daughters wedding

My daughter hannah married hurry on the 7th sept 2019
It was the best wedding I have ever been to. I am the father and have had nothing to do with any daughter and husband did it all. The staff at Hatfield place were wonderful, led superbly by Michele. She was extraordinary.. adding ever bit of detail that was needed. She was on hand 24/7
The building has been beautifully restored and all the rooms in the house are majestic. And the orangery and grounds where the reception was held was amazing. This has all been built over the past year and made the day so special and the pictures were incredible with beautiful back drops ..go and see this place before you decide on anywhere else..
