Wivenhoe House Hotel, Colchester
Found in idyllic Essex parkland and gardens, this stunning 18th-century country house hotel is nothing short of spectacular. Its magnificent façade is enhanced by the elegantly restored interiors and sweeping staircases. Sixteen individual suites and bedrooms are located in the main house while beautiful, relaxing lounges overlook the carefully restored sunken lawn. The traditional house is complemented by the modern Garden Wing, which is home to 24 modern bedrooms and a popular brasserie serving the best of British produce.
The Garden Suite (120 people) is a contemporary setting made up of three rooms with removable partitions to make it flexible for all sizes of wedding. There are also two historic rooms in the main house. Signatures (60 guests) is a serene space with high ceilings, period features and pretty vistas. The Drawing Room (70 guests) has an effortlessly elegant feel and can be hired in conjunction with Signatures. For those who like the great outdoors, the Garden Gazebo is located in the Sunken Lawn overlooking 200-year-old cork oak trees. Receptions are held in the Garden Suite (120 guests) or the Drawing Room (70 guests).
We love... Brides and grooms get a complimentary suite for their first night as a married couple.
