Your wedding should reflect your enduring love for each other. It’s a very personal story for each couple and at Wivenhoe House near Colchester, their aim is to make sure your wedding day is as individual as the tale of your romance

The beautiful Grade II listed house makes an impact from the moment you turn into the driveway. Built in the 18th century it still retains the elegant exterior of an historic country house, ideal for memorable wedding photos, and the classic interior guaranteed to give the wow factor to your special day.

But the story doesn’t end there. Celebrate your nuptials in the licensing drawing room or gazebo and then move with your guests to the sunken lawn or modern garden suite for your delicious wedding breakfast, crafted by a team of top chefs.
