Markshall Estate cancels weddings from October onwards

Beautiful wedding venue, Markshall Estate, near Coggeshall, will no longer hold weddings from October 1st, according to an official announcement made on Tuesday morning. The statement on the Markshall Estate Facebook page reads, "We are very sorry that Markshall has had to make the difficult decision to cease holding weddings from 1st October 2023. As a charity we have to respond to the cultural and economic changes that are happening around us and operate in a way that ensures our long-term future. We understand that this will be very disappointing and upsetting for those affected. We will provide help and support in their search for finding an alternative location or other solution in any way we can. Markshall Visitor Centre, Orchard Kitchen and the Arboretum will remain open. We have recently announced the opening of a new adventure play area and school holiday events called Percy’s Adventures which delivers educational activities and content in an innovative, entertaining way."

If this has affected your wedding, please contact the Markshall team directly on 01376 565420.
