Full Description
  • Gosfield Hall is a stunning Georgian manor house offered exclusively to you for your wedding day. Nestled in a village location among the beautiful Essex countryside, Gosfield Hall stands proud overlooking the sparkling Gosfield Lake and nearby Gosfield golf course. Although it is located in the heart of rural Essex, it is only 30 minutes from Stansted Airport and the M11 to London so easily accessible by road, air and rail. Formerly a royal residence, the Queen Charlotte’s Oak panelled gallery with 120ft long aisle is perfect for wedding ceremonies as is the stunning Grand Salon with its ornately decorated ceiling. The licensed carriageway allows couples to enjoy an outdoor ceremony on sunny days with the striking house as their backdrop. The Marquis of Buckingham’s former ballroom provides an exquisite setting for the wedding breakfast for up to 116 guests and there are several other grand and elegant reception rooms for your guests to enjoy. As the entire house and grounds are exclusively yours you can also invite up to 250 guests for the evening wedding reception and party. There are 23 beautiful bedroom suites available to you for your wedding night, providing the perfect end to your perfect day at Gosfield Hall. The breath-taking Rococco (bridal) Suite has to be seen to be believed but provides a fabulous setting for those early morning getting ready photographs and allows couples to finish their day in pure luxury that they will remember forever. The photograph opportunities are endless and creating lasting memories of your special day is easy. Gosfield Hall is the winner of Wedding Ideas Magazine ‘Best Wedding Venue’ 2011 and Essex Wedding Awards ‘Wedding Venue of the Year – Heritage’ 2012. If you are looking for the dream wedding at a magnificent venue then Gosfield Hall is the one. Please contact us directly for details of our all-inclusive wedding packages.

What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Enjoy the planning as much as the day itself! You only get the build up once so relax and enjoy it!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
The Bride had a photo of her late father attached to her bouquet so that he could walk down the aisle with her in spirit even if not in person.
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Elegant, Special, Magical, Spacious, Comfortable

What’s your favourite canapé?
Smoked salmon blini without a doubt!

I have genuinely never seen a Bridal Suite as large and elegant as the one at Gosfield Hall. YOU MUST SEE IT!
What part of your business are you most proud of?
We are simply wedding experts and have not lost sight of that. We do not blurr the edges by trying to cater for other events.
