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.

Dove Barn, our sister venue, just 30 minutes from Houchins. The next Dove Barn Open Day is on 10th March 11am - 3pm.
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:
