July/August 2018

This year’s going by in a flash, and I can’t quite believe it’s autumn already! I feel like it’s the season to start preparing – this is when I usually start my Christmas shopping! I’ve made my list of who’s getting what and when I’ll be getting it. Just to clarify, I don’t go overboard – I like to be prepared, and why not? I’d hate to be rushing around the shops on Christmas Eve, rummaging through what’s left of the Boots three-for-two gift sets for Aunt Jackie and a Top Gear boxset for dad. My point here is be organised; think about the finishing touches early to avoid disappointment, and give yourself some time closer to your nuptials for some, of course well-deserved, R&R.

Whether you’re opting for a rustic affair in a barn or a grand manor house wedding, make sure you’ve sorted all the additional details like table confetti, signage or a fabulous flower wall.

Be sure to enter your big day on our Get Involved tab on our website anessex.wedding for your chance to feature your nuptials right here in the pages of An Essex Wedding magazine.

Beautiful barns
Blake Hall

Situated within 60 acres of beautifully maintained gardens and parklands sit three 17th-century barns with a spacious lawn and terrace. Each barn has been sympathetically and beautifully restored to provide modern comforts without losing any of its original charm. The newly restored old Stables offer three gorgeous en suite bedrooms for family and close friends to stay on the night of your wedding.

Say ’I do’ al fresco under the canopy of the old Saddlery or inside in the recently restored Hay Barn, both of which can host 150 loved ones. Outdoor drink receptions can take place on the lawn or the Hay Barn and can accommodate 200 partygoers.
