Summer Weddings in Essex
If your dream is to get married in a stunning, new wedding venue surrounded by a beautiful English garden with classical planting, then Houchins is the perfect place for you.
Our beautiful oak-clad ceremony loggia connected to a traditional marquee offers seating for around 100 guests. It is the perfect outdoor summer wedding setting and will keep you and your guests elegantly covered no matter the weather.
The main wedding barn incorporates The Foundry designed for indoor ceremonies if preferred, transforming into a night club for the evening. This is linked to the Chitting Shed, the perfect area for drinks receptions with huge glass double doors opening onto the terrace and the beautiful formal gardens. And finally the Grainstore which has been artfully restored as a dining area and incorporates a huge fireplace and mezzanine gallery to make full use of the 35 foot ceilings again overlooking the gardens.
As a new venue, we still have some availability for Summer 2015, so if you are thinking of marrying next year please contact us to discuss your requirements in more detail.

Visit 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'.
