Braxted Park hosts hundreds of weddings each year, both civil weddings in the Orangery and Walled Garden and church weddings in the beautiful All Saints Church within the grounds of the estate. But do you know all there is to know about Braxted Park?
Braxted Park is one of the largest wedding venues in East Anglia – Whether you are looking for a venue for 30 guests or want to hold a reception for 350 guests, Braxted Park is the venue for you. Our beautiful Queen Anne house has a number of licensed rooms, from intimate small weddings in the Lantern Room through to large family celebrations in the Walled Garden Pavilion. You can also choose to marry outside in the Knot Garden.
Hold your church wedding and wedding reception all on one site – All Saints Church is set in the grounds of Braxted Park, just a stone’s throw from the main house and the reception venue. The church can seat 150 guests and the wedding coordinators at Braxted Park will be able to guide you through the process of booking your church wedding.
Accommodation available on site – Braxted Park has 12 guest bedrooms available to accommodate the wedding on the night of the wedding. The Stable Rooms have been refurbished very recently and are furnished to a very high standard. Three of the rooms are family rooms and one with complete disabled facilities. A continental breakfast is served to guests the following morning in the Breakfast Room.
The Garden Cottage offers a luxurious post wedding retreat for the bride and groom. You can relax and enjoy a chilled glass of bubbly and wind down together, sharing all those memories which have been made throughout the day.
You can hold your hen do at Braxted Park – The Cookery School at Braxted Park is the perfect venue for a hen party for up to 20 hens. Overlooking the 500 acres of parkland, The Cookery School at Braxted Park runs regular classes on a range of cuisines, from Indian and Thai through to bakery and patisserie style classes. Choose from Sushi making, fun with chocolate or a Great British Bake Off or Ready Stead Cook type challenge. Why not combine a half day cooking or baking class with a session at the local spa?
Braxted Park is a wedding venue steeped in history – Braxted Park was first recorded as being a Deer Park in 1342 when it belonged to the Countess of Pembroke. Since then it has belonged to a number people, including Peter Du Cane, who renamed the house Braxted Park in 1823 and built the stunning four and a half mile park wall around the estate and the addition of six lodge buildings, one of which is now the Bridal Cottage.
The estate is now owned by Duncan Clark, and is a thriving and self-sufficient rural estate, not only home to hundreds of weddings each year, but also a nine hole golf course, The Cookery School at Braxted Park and a range of rural pursuits.
