Winter Weddings in Essex

What could be more romantic than a beautiful winter wedding at Houchins? With roaring fires and atmospheric lighting we’ve got everything you need to make your day unforgettable.

For smaller ceremonies there is the paneled drawing room in the main house providing an intimate setting and the perfect backdrop for photographs.

The main wedding barn, with eco under-floor heating throughout, incorporates The Foundry for large indoor ceremonies which can then transform 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 overlooking the beautiful formal gardens. Finally the old Grainstore has been artfully restored as a dining area which incorporates a huge fireplace and mezzanine gallery overlooking the gardens.

For more information, or to discuss your plans for a winter wedding please contact on or via email.

“We’re just back from our minimoon and now all the wedding dust has settled, just wanted to drop you all a note to say a huge THANK YOU for everything you did to make our day so fantastic. A lot of people had said to us before ‘things will go wrong on the day, but you just won’t care’ – but nothing did for us! Everything ran so smoothly as we had planned and it was everything we wanted it to be and more. Thank you to all of you and your amazing team that make it all happen, I couldn’t recommend you highly enough as a venue. September 2019 ”
