If you’re looking for a wedding venue in the South East for 2015, Braxted Park in Essex is hard to beat. Consistently nominated by real brides for the Wedding Ideas Awards, this stunning venue is opening its doors in an exclusive Open Day – and you could be there! Here are just five reasons to make the trip…

A unique opportunity

With the exception of pre-booked wedding viewings, Braxted Park and its stunning grounds are usually closed to the public, so the open day offers visitors a rare opportunity to view inside the gates. Once inside, brides and grooms will be able to view the beautiful rooms of the Queen Anne house, the immaculate grounds, the Stable Rooms, available for guests who wish to stay at Braxted Park on the evening of the wedding, and the newly opened Bridal Changing Room and Bridal Cottage.


Meet the wedding co-ordinators

Braxted Park’s wedding co-ordinators, Michelle and Rochelle, will be on hand throughout the day to answer any questions you might have. They will also have a full list of availability for the next two years, so you can even set a date! Couples will also get the chance to meet some of the Front of House staff who work hard to ensure every wedding runs smoothly and every element goes to plan.
