About

Up to 150 Guests

Mulberry House is a family-owned and operated wedding venue located in High Ongar, England. This Essex estate is nestled on 22 acres of rolling fields, wishing wells, and lakes that create a breathtaking backdrop. The historic house has been subtly converted into a boutique hotel while retaining its retro charm and details. Featuring stunning Georgian architecture mixed with 21st-century additions, this venue is a luxurious and unique setting for celebrations of love.

Facilities and Capacity

Mulberry House is licensed for civil ceremonies of up to 130 people. The venue has two beautiful wedding reception spaces, both of which come equipped with working bars and can seat between 50 and 140 guests. The Mulberry Suite is furnished with two exquisite chandeliers and exposed beams, while the Marquee is draped with white cloth and fairy lights. Before dining and dancing, drinks receptions can be held on the terrace overlooks the grounds and lake. After the festivities, you and your loved ones can retire to the hotel's 23 overnight accommodations. These comfortable and tastefully-designed en-suite bedrooms will allow you to relax and unwind after a fun-filled day with all your friends and family.

Services Offered

Mulberry House only hosts one event per day, meaning you will have exclusive access to the hotel throughout your wedding. The only creatures you will share the property with are the alpacas, donkeys, and rare birds that also call the estate home. For your big day, you will have a dedicated Wedding Co-Ordinator, Function Manager, and waiting staff at your disposal to ensure everything goes seamlessly.

    Jarvis Wedding Day At Mulberry House

    What a great venue!
    We booked our big day a few days before lockdown first began. We were lucky enough to not have to move our date but were assured on multiple occasions by Mulberry House that if need be we could move it.
    Our day went ahead as planned. The lead up to the day and planning with Nicola went smoothly and she catered to everything we wanted. She made us feel at ease that the day would go perfectly, and it did!
    Georgia was our coordinator for the day and she was great! Put us totally at ease, was great with the flower girls and boys and made our day flow effortlessly. We were then passed over to the F&B manager for the wedding breakfast and evening, which again flowed perfectly. The food was great, as was the service! The evening was fab too; the bar service was prompt, evening food was great and when we asked to top it up for seconds for our guest they were great at accommodating. All the day and evening staff were equally friendly and attentive. I wish we could do it all again! And the next morning just extended all the fun, we had the best full English breakfast (many of our guests agreed) and had a nice relaxed atmosphere with friends and family until check out. It is a very relaxed venue and you really feel at home here.
    I can't recommend this venue enough, a truly lovely team and beautiful venue. We will be back for afternoon tea soon!

    Perfect Wedding Venue

    Where to begin! Simply put, Mulberry House are an incredible wedding venue.

    We chose Mulberry House for a number of reasons:
    - Everything is under one roof, including accommodation for our guests which meant the day flowed nicely with guests not being dragged from one location to another!
    - The setting is just stunning. No amount of photos or videos could portray exactly how it feels to be at this beautiful location.
    - The building looks amazing in photos, there is clearly a lot of attention to detail and this is reflected in how well the venue is kept.
    - Every review we read commented on how amazing the level of service was which we discovered was completely accurate.

    In the planning stages, nothing was too much trouble. Nicola and Georgia answered all of our queries promptly and in great detail, always putting our desires first to ensure we had the day we envisaged. They kept us up to date at all times and the entire team work so coherently together to ensure no detail is overlooked. They gave us so many options and were completely flexible - we could have our ceremony indoors or outdoors; there were multiple spaces for our wedding breakfast; timings were entirely up to us and whilst they had plenty of suggestions for suppliers they were also happy for us to find our own. The Mulberry House team liased and co-ordinated with our many suppliers effortlessly - we didn't need to do anything at all!

    On the day, we arrived early and reception let us in. The entire reception team were so warm and welcoming, it was a great start to the day. The catering staff served us the most incredible breakfast, it was laid out beautiful and was almost too good to eat. They also provided vegan and vegetarian options and nothing was too much trouble for them.

    Later in the morning, we were met by Claire (venue co-ordinator) who is truly one of the kindest and most attentive people we have ever encountered. She could not do enough for us and we felt in safe hands from the moment she greeted us on the day. She checked in with us regularly to reassure us things were going to plan and to ask if there was anything else we needed from her. She orchestrated the day effortlessly and seemed to have a vision in her mind of exactly how things would and should run - she is truly a pro.

    Halfway through the day, we were handed over to David (banqueting manager). Like Claire, he had a calming and warm manner and made sure we had everything we wanted. He took amazing care of us and our guests, who all commented on how wonderful all the staff had been. The food for the entire day from canapés to the wedding breakfast to the barbeque in the evening - it was all just SO delicious. I couldn't finish my dessert and one of team offered to save it for me for later which I was so grateful for as it was the best crème brulée I've ever had!

    The evening of the wedding went so smoothly which is a testimony to how committed Mulberry House are to events planning and organising. They co-ordinated all of our suppliers in a way that Charlie and I only had to enjoy the day as it unfolded in front of us! When we went up to our room for the night, we were met with a bottle of bubbly on ice and a selection of some of our dessert table (we were so grateful for this as we hadn't got a chance to try everything!).

    The morning after, we had breakfast with all of our guests that had stayed and it was just as delicious as the food on the day of the wedding. It was the perfect way to finish our wedding, which we didn't want to end!

    We would like to say thank you to each and every member of the Mulberry House team - you all exceeded our expectations in delivering a wedding day that we couldn't even have dreamt of.

    To anyone considering getting married at Mulberry House - snap them up right now! You won't regret it!

    Eloise and Charlie x

    Better than expected

    What a day! And it was mainly due to the wonderful staff at Mulberry House, the beautiful venue and grounds didn't hurt too. Claire was the consummate professional, making sure everything was executed as we'd planned, nothing went amiss, she went above and beyond to ensure that our guests were looked after, and that we were at ease at all times. David and his team were amazing too, the food was fantastic - everyone said so! He was also very considerate with helping to look after our guest, and little touches like making sure we had some cake set aside and a bottle of bubbles on him to enjoy with it. Both are a huge asset to the venue, and long may they be there (and looked after) to ensure its continued success.

    Mulberry House

    Claire and the Mulberry team were outstanding. Very professional and caring. Nothing was too much trouble. The day went perfectly without a hitch. Last minute alterations were no problem. My daughters friends will use them for their upcoming weddings.
