Situated on the border between Essex and Suffolk, on the grounds of The White Heart, is The Essex Barn, a truly enchanting wedding venue. Surrounded by spectacular English countryside, this venue offers a romantic backdrop for your special day.
With a seamless blend of old and new, this traditional style barn benefits from loving and stylish renovation, creating a unique and inviting space. The open mezzanine floor offers a romantic setting for your ceremony, with neutral décor allowing you to add your own personal touches.
The main barn has a warm and welcoming feel, ideal for enjoying a delicious meal and dancing with your nearest and dearest. Your wedding breakfast will be created by the talented 2AA Rosette team of chefs, using fresh, locally sourced produce where possible. Serving staff are professional and discreet and will ensure glasses are topped up and everything is running smoothly. All you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy your first meal as a married couple.
Benefitting from stunning grounds, you and your guests are also welcome to explore The Essex Barn’s picturesque surroundings. Where better to host summer drinks receptions or capture your wedding portraits than under the shade of the gazebo or on the sun-drenched lawn?
When it comes to preparing for your special day at Essex Barn, you will be given use of a bridal preparation room in the main building, usually reserved for the bride and her bridesmaids. The room takes the stress of travelling from one place to another on the wedding morning away and allows a tranquil and enjoyable preparation experience. The Bride is also treated to her own bathroom within the barn, where she can freshen up throughout the day.
Essex Barn also boasts 11 en-suite bedrooms, finished to Four AA Gold Star standard for you and your closest friends and family to retire to following the festivities.
The team at Essex Barn would be delighted to show you around and discuss your dream day with you.

I could not recommend the White Hart more as a venue.Sent on 14/04/2015
Laura and her team were professional and attentive throughout the entire wedding planning process, and will be as involved as you want or need them to be. Nothing is too much trouble for them.
The venue itself is beautiful, in a peaceful country setting, we loved it from our first visit. The mezzanine floor was something I'd never seen before at a venue, and I really felt it added something different and alternative to the venue, plus meant that if the weather took a turn for the worse, (which we were lucky to avoid on our day!) you or your guests won't get wet moving from ceremony to reception!
The bridal preparation suite is also beautiful and spacious enough for all you need in the morning, plus a view out over the front of the Inn where you can see your guests arriving!
Our guests have all commented on how lovely the venue is, as well as the gorgeous accommodation and amazing food. We are looking forward to returning for dinner or even to stay in one of the beautiful rooms.
We highly recommend the White Hart, the service is second to none, and the Wedding package prices are really competitive, we didn't have a huge budget but still managed to afford all we needed and wanted.

I know this may be very much after the event but I don't think I ever really thanked you for making our wedding day so special! Although it was absolutley freezing, we had a fantastic day!Sent on 09/05/2012
All of the staff on the day were brilliant and it all went so perfectly I'd do it all again tomorrow if we could!
Everyone that came loved the venue and seemed to have as good a day as we did..... I can't recommend you highly enough.
Thank you again for all your patience and help on the day and the months leading up to it.
