Immersed in the superbly restored Parsonage Farm, The Hare's Field is a picturesque country wedding venue in Wethersfield, North Essex. New and undiscovered, this attractive wedding barn offers a ceremony license and accommodation, all in one gorgeous courtyard. Hosts Mick and Fiona invite you to enjoy a treat for the senses and a celebration to remember tucked away in the peaceful solitude of Wethersfield.

Facilities and Capacity

The Hare's Field is a beautiful option for smaller weddings of 60 or less, with a spacious setting that offers blissful seclusion away from the daily bustle. Your wedding ceremony and reception can take place in the main barn, arranged in the layout that best suits your wishes. Sympathetically restored to an astonishing degree, this chic rustic building is awash with exciting areas and useful features. After the ceremony, you and your guests can spend time in the elegant courtyard or relaxing seating area, soaking in the rolling Essex countryside. On chilly evenings, the fire pit adds a distinctive atmosphere to the festivities, encouraging loved ones to cosy up close and swap stories of the happy couple. Two lounge areas and a bar offer a warm alternative if the mood takes you indoors. Eight contemporary double bedrooms, including a newly refurbished wedding suite, provide the perfect end to a magical night, with ensuite shower rooms, and underfloor heating.

Services Offered

Not only do Mick and Fiona boast a keen eye for interior design, but their tastes for good food and great company have enabled them to build a list of trusted, discerning partners. What's more, Mick and Fiona's shared love of music and dogs informs much of The Hare's Field's fun extras, like the multi-zone music system and dog-friendly options upon arrangement. Your furry friend can even look forward to a welcome box of goodies and field walks from the door. To find out more, Mick and Fiona invite you to get in touch and begin the first steps towards your bespoke celebration.

Amazing venue!

Cannot stress enough how easy Fiona and Mick made our wedding day for us!
The venue was exactly what we were looking for and suited our style, size and casual nature of our celebration. It was so flexible to different parts of the day and had everything we needed.
All vendors they recommended were top quality and all worked seamlessly together to create a perfect day.
Highly recommend!

We wanted a laid back, relaxed DIY venue for our wedding which is what the Hare’s Field presented itself as. Unfortunately this wasn’t the case. From the moment we arrived, Mick, the owner who we had never met, hounded us in a pretty aggressive way. He would not leave us to set up and caused so much stress. On the wedding day, he was constantly at the guests complaining, telling them off and made people really uncomfortable. We got a lot of complaints about this and of him watching the wedding from his window, to repeatedly come out and tell people off, including myself when someone (nothing to do with the wedding) set off fireworks a few fields away. He made one guest cry by telling her off about using the wrong bin bag for recycling. It wasn’t appropriate or how the venue was sold to us. My ceremony set up was moved without my knowledge and the owners were repeatedly in the bridal suite (which was sold to us as exclusive use and without interruption) with the owners moving all my stuff and dumping it on the bathroom floor while I was absent - again without my knowledge or consent and causing so much stress.

We booked the Hare’s Field for our wedding expecting it to be the best day of our lives. Unfortunately it was ruined by Mick’s intrusive nature and we feel really let down by the experience.

Hands down the best venue but the hosts make it even better!

This venue is just perfect for a small wedding which is what we wanted. The venue has amazing views and was a very reasonable price for what was offered. But the best part was how helpful and lovely Fiona and Mick are. They are such amazing humans and we will forever remember them because they truly made our special day one to remember for a lifetime!

Just wow!!!

This venue was literally everything I wanted. I only went to see the Hare’s Field because I knew it would be perfect. The scenery around is breath taking. Fiona and Mick were so helpful and always responded quickly. This venue meant we could have the relaxed, intimate, unique wedding we wanted. Not only that we had our venue to ourselves for the whole weekend!!!
