Essex Wedding Catering

A key ingredient in the success of your wedding day is your choice of caterer!

At Houchins, we know how important it is to have a caterer that you feel completely comfortable with. Therefore we have carefully pre-selected four excellent local caterers all with slightly different styles. We ask you to use one of our preferred caterers for all events at Houchins. Please contact the caterers directly to discuss your requirements. Once you have agreed on a menu you will usually be invited to a tasting at their premises before signing your contract with them.

Dove Barn, our sister venue, just 30 minutes from Houchins.

Dove Barn is where our wedding business started in 2002.

A charming, rustic barn just behind the historic Castlings Hall near Sudbury in South Suffolk needed restoring and we took on that challenge. Since 2002 we have held over 300 weddings at Dove Barn and it has variously been described as 'quirky', 'laid-back', 'a hidden gem of a venue' and 'full of rural calm'. If you are looking for a unique venue just off the beaten track take a look at our website:
