Wedding receptions

When you book your wedding reception at Gaynes Park, not only will you be holding your wedding at one of the most beautiful and exclusive wedding reception venues in Essex, but also you will receive the full support of our experienced Events Team from the moment you book and throughout your big day to ensure that you and your guests have a wonderful day to remember.

After you wedding ceremony, either at Gaynes Park or elsewhere, you and your guests can celebrate with a relaxed drinks reception in the Walled Garden. Established trees, colourful herbaceous borders, old-fashioned roses and seasonal blooms provide a scenic backdrop with many photo opportunities to be had while guests enjoy delicious canapés or garden games. Couples often return with their photographer in the evening to capture romantic moonlight shots beneath the pavilion with its twinkling fairy lights.

Even in the most inclement weather you can still enjoy the beautiful Walled Garden by holding your drinks reception in the Orangery after your ceremony.  Its tall windows provide uninterrupted views of the gardens while allowing everyone to remain warm and comfortable inside.

Imagine your friends and family gathered together in our spacious Mill Barn with its floor to ceiling windows, soaring timber beams, chic mezzanine level with comfortable seating, dance floor, and licensed bar. You’ll enjoy the delicious food and first-class service for which Gaynes Park is renowned in the elegant surroundings and seclusion that this private family estate provides.
