About The Essex Barn at the White Hart

Pool Street, Great Yeldham, Halstead
Essex, CO9 4HJ

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. 

• You will be offered exclusive use of The Essex Barn and Garden area on your special day • Wedding Packages start from £2995.00+VAT • The venue is licensed to hold civil ceremonies, allowing you to spend your entire day here • Overnight accommodation available in 12 bedrooms and our stunning Honeymoon Suite • 2AA Rosette chefs will prepare a delicious wedding breakfast using the very best produce • The beautiful country surroundings and garden are the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs

Beautiful venue
Venue Service

By Elise Hughes, on 14 Apr 2015

I could not recommend the White Hart more as a venue. 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.

Thank you

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! 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. Many Thanks

We just wanted to send you an email before we head off on our honeymoon just to say the warmest of thanks to you and your team. We had the most perfect day, it all was absolutely seamless and we enjoyed every minute of it. We can't believe that you even organised the weather to be dry and sunny all day too! Everyone commented on how lovely the venue was and how the food and service were both superb. We can't thank you and your team enough for making our day so special and one we will remember for the rest of our lives. We will definately come back and see you in the near future but for now thank you very much from us and our family and friends.

Thank you!

By Simon and Becky Onyons, on 29 Jul 2011

We both just wanted to say a huge Thank you to all the staff at the Essex Barn for making everything run so smoothly. So many people who attended have commented on how fantastic the venue was, how friendly and helpful the staff were and how smoothly everything ran. To be able to just stroll around chatting prior to getting married was so nice and your help in getting everything set up and moving along so nicely on the day and in the evening was the main reason we were both so relaxed and able to enjoy every aspect of the day. It had to be the most stress free wedding I have ever heard of so a most sincere thank you form both of us and all our guests.
