About High House Weddings

Winner of 'Wedding Venue of the Year (Countryside) - East of England' at the Wedding Industry Awards 2018 and 'Wedding Venue of the Year - Something Different' at the Essex Wedding Awards 2017.

High House is a stunning wedding venue set in six acres of landscaped gardens and rolling meadow in the Essex countryside. Offering a luxurious yet quaint setting, High House is exclusively yours for your perfect wedding day.

Our couples have the option of having their ceremony in either the rustic Essex barn which dates back to 1750, or outside in the grounds under our beautiful thatched gazebo at the end of a stunning flower filled pergola.

Our grounds include an aptly heart-shaped lake, large pond over which sits a Monet-inspired bridge, weeping willows which provide stunning photo opportunities, an abundance of wildlife and pretty country flowers throughout the gardens. We also have our beautiful vineyard, 'The Althorne Estate' where couples will often choose to have some stunning photographs taken.

Our brides have exclusive use of our oak framed orangery to get ready before the ceremony. Situated overlooking the swimming pool, the orangery is luxuriously furnished with comfortable sofas, dressing tables and of course a changing room and generous ensuite. 

When the time comes for guests to be seated, our elegant marquee offers the perfect setting. With views to the lake (spectacular at sunset!) which can be viewed from our decking, the highly impressive space will wow your guests. The wedding marquee can be prepared to accommodate anything from an all-day informal barbecue to a genteel wedding breakfast. The decision is yours.

As dusk falls the marquee comes to life for your evening celebrations. Benefiting from a dance floor reveal (your party is hidden away until the evening), twinkling star-cloth lining, stage, and black and white dance floor, you can be sure of an amazing party atmosphere.

For couples on their wedding night, a secluded retreat, the 'Brides Cottage' is  tucked away within its own secret garden. Couples enter the secret garden via an enchanting solid oak door and are greeted by the beautiful cottage standing proudly amongst gravel gardens and pretty cottage flowers. Offering a sumptuous bedroom with freestanding bath and en-suite, cozy lounge and kitchen, this is the perfect place for escape and privacy on your wedding night. For family and friends, offering the same luxurious finish and amenities as our bridal cottage, our detached guest lodge offers an additional two en-suite bedrooms. Ideal for your immediate bridal party.

We strive to be a flexible venue and we will be pleased to work in collaboration with you as you plan your wedding. If you want to do things differently, please tell us, we are very happy to accommodate your unique requirements.

    High House is a very special venue

    High House is a very special venue, we both knew it as soon as we stepped inside on our first open day. As it is a family home you can feel the love and care in the atmosphere and surroundings. Our day was absolutely perfect and we wouldn’t change one thing about it. The staff are lovely and Hayley is an absolute superstar. Thank you High House!!

    We cant thank the staff enough

    We had an amazing day, made better by having Hayley as our wedding planner making sure the day went smoothly. We can’t thank any of the staff enough for their hard work.
