From the fairytale splendour of Colchester Castle to the Edwardian glamour of the Town Hall,
Colchester is home to the most romantic and historic of wedding venues.

Whether you are planning an intimate gathering, or a lavish celebration, our choice of breath-taking spaces will provide the perfect setting for your special day. Whatever your tastes (or budget!) we’ll help make your wedding day dreams come true.

Fulfil your dreams of an English castle wedding

At the grand, gated entrance of Castle Park lies Colchester Castle, one of England’s most important heritage sites.

Built on the foundations of the Temple of Claudius, at a time when Colchester was the first Roman capital of Britain, this is one of Colchester’s most unique and awe-inspiring wedding venues.

Whether you choose a large celebration or a small and intimate wedding with family and close friends, this historic venue creates the perfect backdrop to your big day. Make your choice of three unique and romantic spaces, filled with light and charm.

By night the venue becomes exclusively yours, friends and family will be transported through time as you explore the historic archways and chambers, soaking up thousands of years of history and culture.

Elegance and glamour to take your breath away

The Town Hall is a jewel in Colchester’s crown. From its prominent town centre location, this magnificent Baroque structure with its Victorian tower and statue of St Helena, Colchester’s patron saint, dominates the town.

Bursting with old-fashioned glamour, the Town Hall’s opulent interiors are fully licenced for ceremonies and receptions, offering style and grandeur for all occasions.

Our outstanding function rooms are all beautifully decorated with ornate and original features such as stained-glass windows, oil paintings and murals, and are still used for their original purpose today including Mayoral and Civic events.

The architecture and surroundings are unlike anything else you will see in the area and we would love to help you plan a celebration to remember.

Romantic landscapes and stunning parkland views

Nestled within the award-winning Castle Park and approached along a romantic walkway of London Plane trees, the Summer House was built in the 18th Century by Scottish architect Charles Gray to replicate a Roman Temple.

With stunning views across the Park’s magnificent gardens and lakes, this picturesque venue provides the most secluded of locations for your wedding ceremony, reception and photographs.

The Park is renowned for its magnificent gardens which are meticulously maintained throughout the year. Marquees have long been popular to host wedding receptions in the park, part of which is now licensed to host your outdoor civil ceremony.

Our spacious, show-stopping venue

At Charter Hall we are proud to present one of the largest venues in the county. A popular choice for clientele from far and wide and a favourite for large, multicultural weddings.

The extensive rooms are extremely versatile and easily transformed to turn your dreams into reality. The two main rooms can be combined to guarantee seating for up to 700 guests, with flexibility to segregate for smaller gatherings.

The facilities at Charter Hall are second to none with advanced AV equipment and ample decorative opportunities, plus there are over 500 car parking spaces at the venue.

Really decorative
The Council Chamber room is really beautifully decorated already with wall paintings, wood panelling and stained glass windows. No need for room dressing.
