High House is an award-winning wedding venue tucked into the countryside of Essex in Althorne, England. This picturesque estate is nestled on six acres of landscaped grounds that consist of rolling meadows and flowering gardens. It is luxurious yet quaint and will be exclusively yours on the most romantic day of your life.
Facilities and Capacity
Begin your wedding at High House in the Dressing Room, which has been elegantly furnished for you to make your preparations. This sun-lit, oak-framed space overlooks the swimming pool and is set with comfy sofas, dressing tables, and changing rooms. Once you are ready, you can tie the knot in the rustic Essex barn, which dates back to 1750 and seats 120, or underneath an outdoor thatched gazebo. This gazebo sits at the end of a flower-filled pergola that can be used as an aisle. The rest of the grounds are perfect for exploring and picture-taking. They include a heart-shaped lake, a pond with a Monet-esque bridge and a vineyard. Finally, wedding breakfasts and evening receptions can take place in the marquee. This impressive pavilion has views over the lake and can accommodate both informal barbecues and sophisticated multi-course meals.
High House offers numerous services to make your celebration seamless and stress-free. These include a black and white dance floor, twinkling star-cloth lining, and a stage. The venue also has sumptuous on-site accommodations. You and your new spouse will enjoy a secluded retreat in the Couples Retreat. This cottage is tucked into a secret garden that you enter through a solid oak door. Your loved ones can stay the night in the detached guest house, which is similarly furnished with upscale amenities.

The day was perfect from start to finish, everything ran smoothly and we truly believe that Samantha made the whole wedding planning process so stress free, that we were able to enjoy the build up to our big day.
All of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue is and how professional, friendly and efficient all of the staff are.
The food is amazing and there’s plenty of it. Just simply delicious.
