Last update: July 2024

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 origional charm and details. Featuring stunning Georgian architecture mixed with 21st-century additions, this venue is a luxurious and unique setting to hold weddings all year through.

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 wedding per day, meaning that no other couple is married here on the same day. 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.

Our magical perfect

I can’t even put into words how amazing our day was. From booking the venue back in October 22, to visiting their open days. Open communication throughout the planning period, the team went above and beyond and made it all a breeze. The day before we had an unexpected issue and required an earlier access - Claire kindly came in extra early to assist. Nothing was too much for her. Everything throughout the day ran so smooth with Claire, she was like my very own fairygod mother. I was 34 weeks pregnant on our special day and Claire made sure everything was ok, constantly bringing us refreshments and some food during our photos. Checking we were both ok. We felt so comfortable with her and honestly couldn’t have done it without her.
The rest of the staff also went above and beyond throughout the day too. All of the guests kept complimenting the staff and couldn’t believe how lovely they were. You can tell how much they all love their job and it really shine with the service the team provide. We can’t recommend them enough.
The venue is stunning. We had minimal and rustic theme, but the venue decor made it look outstanding.

What a perfect day!

From start to finish mulberry house were so attentive and would stop at nothing to make our day perfect. They worked with all of the suppliers to make sure everything and everyone were in their places. They even helped me calm my pre-speech nerves. We couldn’t have asked for a better venue and a better experience, absolutely faultless!

Our dream wedding

Wow where do we start?!

From the moment we pulled up to view mulberry house we just knew this is where we were going to get married. The team were incredible from the first interaction and all the way through. Our day went so smooth & if there was a hitch we didn't know about it. The team are fantastic Chloe who has helped with every bit leading up, then claire & Jo who I just cannot fault. The food is just AMAZING. We have some fussy eaters in our family and they said thats the best wedding food they have had! The food truck is the best idea and is so so yummy. I myself as the bride am gluten intolerant and everything was dealt with and i didn't miss out on a thing!

The bar staff, security, the chefs everyone was just amazing. Thank you Mulberry house for just making our day an absolute dream!

Amazing experience

We got married at mulberry house Friday 24th may 2024! It was the only venue I looked at and the grounds alone were enough for me to marry here. From start to finish it was perfect. From Jo in the sales team to Chloe the wedding planner then Claire and Jo on the day I have no faults. Honestly if you’re considering mulberry house I’d go for it. They made all my dreams and more come true. I used all the recommend supplier too. They only go with the best. Thank you mulberry house for making my wedding the best day ever!

The Venue is so beautiful and the gardens are so picturesque. Our day was made better by the warm welcome from the staff, who made you feel so comfortable and was there to help and guide you through the whole process from booking the wedding day in advance, planning the day out and enjoying the food tasting evening. The team made the process so exciting and supported us to ensure we was stress free so we could enjoy the planning and the special day!

24/04/2024 THE most beautiful, incredible day of our lives!

No words will ever be enough to describe how absolutely amazing The Mulberry House Team are. I always wished for a fairytale wedding and all of my dreams came true here on my wedding day. THE most stunning venue with THE most wonderful, kind, helpful staff. I knew from the moment I entered the grounds of Mulberry House for the first time that this would be the place I would get married and it was the best decision my husband and I made. The Mulberry House team were there for us every step of the way on our wedding planning journey. You all went above and beyond for both my husband and I and all of our wedding guests on our special day to ensure everything was perfect for us all. By the time our wedding day came around, I honestly felt like I had become a part of the Mulberry House family. You made our dream wedding become a reality and everything was even more amazing than we ever could have imagined. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for absolutely everything 💖

Absolutely perfect day!

We could not fault Mulberry House in any way, and our day was a million times more magic than we ever expected it to be. Chloe was amazing at helping us throughout our planning - she was responsive and friendly even with all of our last minute changes! Claire and Jo… what can we say? They made our day so special! They made everything run seamlessly on the day, and we did not have to worry about a thing. We’ve had so many compliments on our day, from the beauty of the grounds to the quality of the food. We wish we could do it all over again!! Thank you to everyone at Mulberry House for making us feel you were as excited for our day as we were and your impeccable service. Look forward to coming back soon!

Perfect from start to finish

Mulberry House is the epitome of luxury, class and the wow factor- but all of this is paired with heart, sincerity, love and a family feel. This venue and the team are truly special. My husband and I have worked on luxury cruise ships for years, so we understand the service industry and how much hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make things look effortless and easy. Claire, Jo, Chloe and the entire Mulberry House team (every single team member we encountered) could not have done more to make us feel special- we felt like A- List Celebrities the entire day and the lead up to the wedding.
The day ran like clockwork it was organised and seamless- but never at any time did it become regimented. I’m an over-thinker and my mind very rarely stops racing… but the entire day I felt relaxed, reassured- we just knew everything was taken care of, every small detail… Claire and Jo are consummate professionals they had our 100% trust the entire time. The whole team are so genuine, caring and committed. They can’t do enough for you. Something I’ll never forget (and my guests also commented on this) is seeing MH team members working and dancing at the same time during the evening reception. When you see the people who are working so hard to please you being happy, it makes you happy. We know how much effort and hard work goes into pleasing so many guests- so thank you thank you a million times for making this day the best day of our lives!

We had many last minute changes (guests dropping out) the lead up to our wedding- I thought that because we made a few changes literally the day before the wedding, there was a chance that these would’ve been missed off (and if they had been I would’ve been totally understanding because of how short notice it was) - this was nothing for the MH team; everything was as it needed to be- absolutely perfect. This really impressed me because we must’ve had about 5 versions of ‘Complete Table Breakdowns’.!!!!

The food and drink was fantastic - the menu tasting evening was a brilliant night aswell. Compliments to the chef!

I’m so sorry I can’t remember the name of the lovely lady who managed the bar/the evening reception. She was fantastic- so lovely and brilliant!!

The grounds and venue itself is stunning… our guests didn’t stop commenting how beautiful and picturesque the venue was. It really was like being in a fairytale. The Tresco suite is gorgeous and so comfortable - we had a relaxing night after an amazing, but long day! The breakfast the next morning was delicious, so much to choose from and we really savoured every last second of being at Mulberry House.

Thank you so much to the entire team. We wish we could do it all over again and again!

Perfect Day

We recently had the most magical wedding day at Mulberry House. From the moment we stepped onto the grounds, we were captivated by the beauty of this stunning location. The picturesque surroundings provided the perfect backdrop for our special day, creating unforgettable memories that we will cherish forever.

The staff at Mulberry House went above and beyond to ensure that every detail was executed flawlessly. Special thank you to Chloe for her guidance and answering lots of emails in the lead up to the day and to Jo who ran the entire day so professionally. Nothing was too much and she was always on hand to check how we were and if anything was needed.

The facilities at Mullberry House were stunning. The outdoor ceremony space was absolutely beautiful and you can see how much time and effort is put in to maintain the outdoors. The marquee was impeccably decorated and provided a wonderful setting for our reception.

Overall, our wedding day at Mulberry House was a dream come true. We are eternally grateful to the entire team for making our day absolutely perfect for us.

Book this venue now! Mulberry is 10/10

There is just not enough time or enough words to describe how amazing our experience with Mulberry House was for our wedding in March 2024. We cannot recommend them enough!

Everything was so seamless, and exceeded our expectations in every way. We were planning the wedding from Australia, and the amazing team made everything SO easy, and were so accommodating with all aspects. They really could not have done more.

The day itself was just a total dream. The venue is stunning (everything from the main house, the grounds (even in March!), the rooms, and especially the marquee and orangery) and our guests could not stop commenting on how well everything ran.

It has to be said, that our day was made by the incredible staff at Mulberry house. Everyone from the events team in the early planning days, to the reception staff, wait staff and styling team - everyone worked in sync and so easily to make our day so special. Even the amazing bar staff, who made sure I had a full glass at every single point of the night (they even found me on the dancefloor to refill!).

A special shout out much be made to our on the day coordinators, Jo and Claire, who are just the kindest, beautiful souls who made us and all our guests feel so incredibly welcome and special from the minute we walked through the door. We cannot thank them enough.

Everything was just 10/10 - value for money, location, inclusions, accommodation, service - we cannot fault them in any way.

If you are thinking of booking this venue, do not hesitate! We wish we could relive it all over and over again.

Absolutely incredible

Wow what can I say.....we got married on 2/4/24 and everything was flawless. Chloe and Jo were absolutely incredible, always on hand when needed, they made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it. Also checked in on us. They made sure everyone was were they needed to be. The food was amazing, everyone commented on how lovely it was. Even when having our pictures done, they came and gave us a drink and some food. Couldn't of asked for a better day. Would recommend this place over and over again.

Personalised Service, Amazing Staff and Venue

It's hard to put into words how amazing the team at Mulberry House have been with our wedding. From the first day we saw the venue on an open day, we knew this would be where we would be celebrating! The staff have been so helpful throughout the whole process, making the day go so smoothly. We had our menu tasting and all of the food we had was amazing. We had a Jewish Wedding with a lot of dietary requirements but the bespoke service helped us to feel at ease. On the day, it was like being with friends (especially with Clare and Sammy) rather than them being staff. They thought of every little detail. I cannot say thank you enough to the whole team, and the alpacas ;) Thank you thank you thank you!!!!
