Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Paul
I've worked for Channels since 1999, running weddings and events, and now I use this experience to help advise and sell our venue to new couples looking for their dream venue. Its a lovely and rewarding role, when you see couples arrive to our venue for the first time, and the WOW factor hits them. Weather its the splendid drive in through the Estate, or the many photographic opportunities they have, the ceremony garden which is "like no other" or the rustic beams and interior of the Barn.

Amazing Wedding Day
Thank you to all the team at Channels Estate. Our day was even more amazing than anything we could expect. The Essex Barn was stunning in full Christmas decorations. The food was delicious and the wedding coordinators (David & Molly) were fantastic. Once again thank you so much.

Wonderful Wedding Venue
We cannot express enough our sincere thanks to Channels for hosting our daughter & new son-in-laws wedding day. It was a day to remember, every detail was 100%, from the professionalism of the staff, the meal the Chefs produced and the grounds, which in full Autumn splendor provided lovely photos we will treasure forever.
