Stunning wedding at Houchins in Colchester

Nov 10, 2021 | Houchins, Weddings

Courtnay and Scott’s wedding story starts in the Hundred Acre Woods in Ashdown Forest, the backdrop that inspired the story of Winnie the Pooh one of Courtnay’s favourites. After a walk in the woods, they played Poohsticks on Poohsticks bridge and when Courtnay went across to the other side of the bridge to see if she’d won, Scott went down on one knee. What felt like many years later after their engagement and serval postponed wedding dates, this summer the pair finally said ‘I do’!

Their wedding day was at Houchins wedding venue in Coggeshall just off the A120 in Essex.

Houchins was the first wedding venue they’d looked at and they instantly fell in love with it and could picture themselves getting married there. See if you can spot the subtle theme of Winnie the Pooh throughout their wedding details. Below are some highlights from their summer wedding.
