Finding your Essex wedding venue

Feb 1, 2018 | Wedding advice & ideas

Chances are you’re engaged and are about to start looking for your dream wedding venue? The wedding venue usually accounts for the majority of your wedding spend budget, so of course, it is very important that you get it right.

One of the first things you need to decide when looking for your perfect venue is whether you’re looking to have your ceremony and reception in one location or have the ceremony and reception in different locations.

If you are looking to have your wedding in two locations you will have to take into consideration how your guests will travel from the ceremony to the reception and how close the two locations are. If the two are several miles apart you will potentially be losing valuable time on your wedding day sitting in a car,  would that be something you mind?

Now you need to think about what style of venue you’d like to go with. Are you looking for a rustic barn, a manor house, a marquee wedding etc?

In Essex alone, there are 100+ wedding venues. So below I’ve listed some of my favourite wedding venues in Essex and listed them by style to help.
