Situated on the edge of the idyllic village of Wethersfield, nr Braintree, Essex, in a local conservation area, this peaceful countryside wedding venue has vistas across the historic Wethersfield Manor Park.
The farm was first recorded in the 1700s, and the main barn was restored in 2017 in soft red brick and black weatherboarding, which is traditional for North Essex. There's a lovely south-facing terrace for entertaining and a row of espaliered lime trees forming a delightful entrance to the barn. The traditional ambience of the interior is complemented by modern amenities including air conditioning, under-floor heating, a kitchen and wow-factor lighting.
Inside, the original timber frame has been retained and the space has been divided into two floors – the ground for ceremonies and functions and a mezzanine area with dining and lounge above. The venue specialises in small to medium-sized boutique weddings (up to 60 guests) that are fully customised to the couple with its trusted suppliers. There are various configurations for dining and dancing.
We love... There are currently five beautifully designed suites for the day of the wedding, but couples can also extend celebrations and stay for a long weekend.
