If you are planning a summer wedding in Essex, you’ll want to make the very most of what our beautiful county has to offer. The stunning grounds at Hylands Estate in Chelmsford provide the perfect setting; showcasing wondrous, colour-rich gardens with native flowers and trees rubbing shoulders with more exotic flora and fauna.
Also to be found among the grounds is the picturesque Serpentine Lake, which provides the opportunity for peaceful contemplation if you both need some privacy during your big day and is a romantic backdrop for your all-important wedding photography.
A dream Essex wedding venue, Hylands Estate offers scope for your imagination to run wild, with the Grade II* listed mansion lending itself perfectly to a more traditional theme and the pavilion a blank canvas for those seeking something a little more unusual.
Picture your guests spilling out of the pavilion onto a beautiful terrace that leads to a private courtyard where they can chat, relax and enjoy pre- or post-dinner drinks. Or, if you prefer, imagine making your entrance down our imposing, central grand staircase in Hylands House, which also provides a great setting for group photographs.
Fully licensed, with superb caterers, your guests will want for nothing and your wedding day will be a memory that is treasured by all. The wedding planners at Hylands House excel in making sure your big day goes without a hitch and can arrange as much or as little of your wedding as you choose. From children’s entertainment, carriage rides around the grounds and traditional outdoor games, such as coconut shies and croquet or something more left field like bungee runs and bouncy castles – nothing is too much trouble.
On a more practical level, Hylands Estate is also an ideal Essex wedding venue because it provides abundant free parking and is easily accessible from the A12. Just minutes from the centre of Chelmsford it also offers guests easy access to a range of hotels and guest houses.
