Notes from Braxted Park

Tucked away within thousands of acres of parkland, Braxted Park offers a wonderful escape into the Essex countryside. The magnificent manor house sits at the end of a tree-lined drive and provides a remarkable backdrop for your special day. With its enticing Walled Garden boasting colourful flowerbeds, peaceful water features and the most relaxing atmosphere, you’ll struggle to find a more delightful place to celebrate.

Start your day in the blissful Bridal Changing Room. This secluded space sits in its own courtyard and has everything you could need to primp and preen to your heart’s content. Your partner won’t feel left out either, with plenty of room for preparing in the stylish Garden Cottage.

Where you choose to tie the knot is up to you. Just a few steps from the Bridal Changing Room is the Orangery – a bright, airy and exquisitely decorated room with views over the verdant grounds. Impressive arched windows and hand-painted frescos bring the beautiful gardens inside, no matter what the weather. When the sun is shining however, you can’t beat tying the knot outdoors in the Walled Garden. Say ‘I do’ in this picturesque setting as your guests watch on from the lawn and enjoy the best that the summer has to offer. There’s even a church within the grounds for religious ceremonies too, just a short lakeside stroll away.

After you’ve exchanged your vows, the gardens and grounds are yours to explore. Sip cocktails and sample canapés next to the flowing water fountain, wander through the manicured trees and flowerbeds and discover a wealth of secret nooks to capture memorable photographs.

At the top of the Walled Garden, you’ll find the spacious Pavilion – the perfect location for your wedding breakfast and a celebration to remember. Grand, versatile and neutrally styled, you can make this place your own with whatever theme or colour scheme you like. Dine on the finest food and drink from a great selection of trusted caterers before dancing the night away on the chequerboard dance floor.

When night falls and the music has stopped, nothing can beat retiring to the peace and comfort of the Garden Cottage. Recently refurbished with a chic décor, this private setting is just the place to relax. Enjoy a nightcap in your own secluded garden before sinking into an inviting bed for a well-earned rest. Your loved ones won’t have far to go after the festivities either, with a handful of fantastic converted rooms in the old stable block just a few steps away from the Pavilion.
