Hi I'm looking for a wedding venue in Essex that can offer non wedding packages eg I can find a band, my own flowers, own decorations, own catering etc I can't find any that do it. Thanks
Not in Essex but Suffolk
Www.upthorpewood.co.uk Bring in your own suppliers and even alcohol with no corkage! There is an Open Day this Sunday 11am-3pm, see our Facebook page or Instagram feed for lots of photos.
http://www.redbrickbarn.co.uk/ this place is a blank canvas and you bring in your own suppliers
Look up Marks Hall, lovely there.
Blakes Golf Club in Epping- Venue only hire- 2500 for mon-thurs, 3000 for Friday or 3500 for Saturday- can full use of kitchens, room, tables etc. Really lovely in there but I would also suggest looking at their package deals- very good for a budget ! xxx
The old rectory is beautiful
Langtons, and Highlands house!
Fennes in Braintree do venue only offers I believe x http://www.fennes.co.uk/offers/venueonly-2018/
Use a village hall perhaps?
Might be worth asking the venues if you don't have one part of the package could you for instance have an extra few people instead of the dj or something
The thing you'll struggle with is your own catering, all places i called (other than the venue i booked) wouldn't allow outside catering. Food and drink is what earns them the most money.
Marks hall in coggleshall. They let you bring outside catering and your own alcohol without a corkage fee. Xx
Marks hall all day long stunning there
Reed rooms in Chelmsford is like that
Anne of cleeves barn in great Bardfield. Not far from Braintree. Its beautiful
Warley Park Golf Club
Same problem. The only thing is to not book a "wedding venue" just hire a room for x number of hours in a building you like. Depending on the size of your guest list you should be able to book for the same price as a class or meeting
I was also going to recommend the Reid Rooms Kelly!
We were looking it as an option, but is just a bit too far away from our church. It offered no corkage charge, which is great and you can bring in your own caterers and music!
The old rectory in dunton does allows you to sort everything xxxx
