What can you expect?
Markshall Estate is a unique heritage landscape that extends to more than 2,200 acres of Essex countryside. Managed and cared for by a charitable trust, the estate features woodlands, a world-class arboretum, tranquil lakes and a walled garden. Carefully planted for year-round colour, it provides a wonderful big-day backdrop and a memorable setting for guests to explore.
At the heart of the 200-acre arboretum is the beautiful 18th-century Coach House. With its traditional oak beams and brickwork, it's full of character. The welcoming ambience continues through the arched doors and onto the terrace, which overlooks the picturesque parterre garden. Venture north towards the top of the estate, and visitors find the Brick House Farm Meadow, a wonderful space surrounded by ancient woodland.
There are two very different spaces for weddings. At The Coach House (140 guests) couples can wed under the exposed timber frames or outside in its private garden. Brick House Farm Meadow is a secluded outdoor space for weddings under a canopy of trees or in a tipi. Perfect for a humanist ceremony, it seats up to 100 day guests.
Flexibility is key, with the venue providing venue-only hire as well as full packages. Either way, it offers exclusive-use for 48 hours. There's also a Bridal Preparation Suite for use on the day.
