There is a real sense of ceremony as the Bride glides up the aisle. Don't forget to look back at the Groom, though, as his emotions will be clear! Queen Charlotte's oak-panelled gallery affords every Bride an amazing entrance, thanks to its 120-foot-long aisle. The dual-aspect windows flood the room with light, and the neutral array of silk house flowers really completes this space.

All guest bedrooms are en suite, and all rooms provide tea and coffee-making facilities and bottled water, everything you might need for a restful night.
As Gosfield Hall is not a hotel, accommodation is reserved by the Bride and Groom, so guests should speak directly to the couple should they require a room.

If you opt for a TRADITIONAL STYLE WEDDING you will typically start with an early afternoon ceremony followed by reception drinks with or without canapés and then a two-or three-course Wedding Breakfast. Further guests are then usually invited to join the day guests for an evening buffet and dancing.

You may prefer a TWILIGHT WEDDING, with a later ceremony followed by reception drinks, again with or without canapés. This would lead straight into the evening celebrations with a meal for all your guests, followed by dancing.


FORRESTERS SUITE can seat up to 120 people and has its own bar, dance floor and cloakrooms. It is available for exclusive hire throughout the day and evening.

Alternatively our OAK ROOM and WILLOW ROOM are perfect for smaller ceremonies of up to 20 people.


Leading the catering team are Head Chef Paul Tritton and Sous Chef Matt Hawkins, both of whom have worked at Forrester Park for over a decade. They love to make people happy with their food! Everything is prepared on the premises by our in-house team (we never use outside caterers) and we have a wide selection of dishes to suit almost every taste.

We offer a selection of starters, main courses and desserts, plus barbecue and carvery menus which are a great alternative to a traditional wedding breakfast. Our full menus contain many more dishes, the ones on these pages are just examples.

We also offer lighter buffet and barbecue menus for an evening celebration following a wedding breakfast.

We are happy to cater for vegetarians and other dietary requirements.


Our hospitality team is always on hand to help with all the little questions that come up and generally be a guiding hand throughout the run-up to your wedding to make everything as stress-free as possible.

There are no ‘hidden extras’ - our charges include table linen, crockery, cutlery, glassware, all staffing costs and VAT. This means that when we quote a price you know exactly what you will be spending and there are no unexpected supplements.

You may wish to decorate the venue yourself and provide your own flowers, decorations, music or other entertainment, or you may prefer us to arrange everything. Either way (to use our favourite phrase), “it’s not a problem”!

Most of all, we simply want you and your guests to have a wonderful day!

The current owners Ray and Ann George purchased the house in 1995 and have made many changes during their tenure carefully developing the grounds to be one of the finest hotel wedding venues in Essex.

Newland Hall

The Newland Hall Country Estate is a stunning Grade II listed Tudor Manor House perfectly... located just to the West of Chelmsford. Probably the best wedding venue in Essex, the 100-acre country estate consists of woods, meadowland and four picturesque lakes.

As a specialist wedding venue with over 23 years experience, they have always strongly felt that to succeed they will need to listen to what couples actually want, and to make sure that the majority of profit is reinvested in the house, marquee and surrounding land, to ensure it remains as attractive and picturesque as possible.

All members of staff are very carefully chosen to ensure their skills range from meticulous planning, to being able to manage the day perfectly. Newland Hall is very unusual, as it plans, to ensure your coordinator who’s been organising your wedding since day one, will attend on the day to manage it for you. This coupled with 100% guaranteed exclusive use, creates a seamless transition between the organisation and the running of the day.

They can comfortably cater for up to 200 guests, and have a wide range of options, all of which can be customised to meet the couple’s specific requirements.

The most popular approach is the Traditional Wedding (all day). However, many couples prefer the “Twilight” (evening wedding) approach. There are also the Cosy & Intimate and Afternoon Tea options. These are generally chosen when a daytime only wedding, with no evening element, is preferred. In addition, they also include a Dry Hire option.

A major attraction to Newland Hall for many couples is the high level of flexibility; no two weddings are the same. When paying a deposit, they are assured that they’re only committing to the date, everything else about their day can completely change, including the type of wedding, their numbers, timings, menu choices, and drinks packages.

You will not find a better wedding venue in Essex to provide you with a very special day.

They would very much welcome the opportunity to provide you with a personalised, detailed quotation and make an appointment for you to have a look around.

Crondon Park Golf Club

Voted 'The Venue for all Occasions,' and recently won 'The Best Countryside Wedding... Venue,' Crondon Park is one of the best wedding venues in Essex! Set in 350 acres of beautiful Essex countryside and a wealth of expertise dating back to 1994, its no wonder this family run venue has established a reputation as a premier venue.

Our main function room is The Baronial Hall. Built circa 1600 out of light oak, it is considered to be one of the finest examples of a Tudor/Jacobean Barn.

It has a charm of its own, a very special atmosphere and that wow factor when you first see it. We have enhanced its medieval feel by adding atmosphere lighting; this charming Essex wedding venue can then be colour matched to the theme chosen for your wedding.

The solid rosewood floor was acquired from County Hall London twenty years ago, and a hundred years after it was laid there. The Baronial Suite includes The Ryder Room, which is licensed to perform Civil & Partnership Ceremonies. It also has a Bridal Suite, allowing the bride to prepare herself prior to the ceremony and a private room to escape to. The private gardens are totally enclosed. It has a very private feel and cannot be overlooked by anyone. The trees are theme-lit to match the lighting in the Baronial Hall. The whole wedding venue suite is exclusive and self-contained.

Whether you’re looking for a large wedding venue or a small wedding venue in Essex, we can accommodate for weddings of all sizes. All our catering is in house, we only use fresh produce, and we pride ourselves on presenting tasty foods for all of our wedding guests. There is a wide choice of menus to satisfy all tastes and special dietary requirements.

We welcome the opportunity to meet you, so that we may show you around our wedding venue and its incredible facilities. Contact us today to discuss your special day and your requirements.
