Full Description
High House has the following spaces which are available exclusively to our couples on their wedding day; • Bridal dressing room – our brides arrive to start getting ready in a truly luxurious setting. Overlooking the swimming pool, our dressing room is set within an oak framed orangery luxuriously furnished with comfortable sofas, dressing tables and of course a changing room and generous en-suite. • Choice of 2 spaces for civil ceremony; - Thatched gazebo in the gardens for our couples who wish to marry outside. - Our beautiful restored Grade II listed Essex barn dates back to 1750 and has been lovingly restored. The barn retains its wonderful character with rustic oak beams and exposed red brick. • Monet inspired bridge over our pond leading to our patio area, complete with rustic stable bar for reception drinks (and very cute original Fiat 500 which is always a talking point for guests!) • Grounds - over six acres of grounds in total are available for guests to wander through, admire the pretty English country gardens, orchard and enjoy lawn games which are set out for couples if they wish • Own vineyard on site • Our beautiful marquee - with views to the lake (spectacular at sunset!) which can be viewed from our decking, the highly impressive space wows guests. Benefiting from a dance floor reveal (the party is hidden away until the evening during the couple’s first dance when the reveal is lifted as a surprise), twinkling star-cloth lining, stage, and black and white dance floor, couples can be sure of an amazing party atmosphere. • Brides cottage - a secluded retreat tucked away within its own secret garden. Offering a sumptuous bedroom with freestanding bath and en-suite, cosy lounge and kitchen, this is the perfect place for escape and privacy for a bride and groom on their wedding night. • Guests Lodge - Offering the same luxurious finish and amenities as our bridal cottage, the detached guest lodge offers an additional two en-suite bedrooms.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We would never want to choose just one as we have had so many amazing weddings here and all are so different!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Think about what you want for your day and not what you 'think' you should have. We really encourage our couples to think about what they love and enjoy and make those things part of their day. Lots of couples think their day should include something because it is what's expected at a wedding but they personally don't like it, it's their day and no one else's. We think this is why our weddings are so diverse and makes it so interesting for us.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

One of our brides had sadly lost her dad not long before her wedding day. She wanted to have something here that would remind her of her dad throughout the day. He loved fishing so she set up a chair and fishing rod next to our pond which overlooks our reception drinks space. It was a lovely touch to remember her dad.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Exclusive, country, elegant, family and unique.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Photographers constantly tell us their are spoiled for choice but we love our vineyard and weeping willow tree in front our of beautiful Monet inspired bridge.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Yes, but we wouldn't mention names!

What’s your favourite canapé?

A favourite for guests seems to be the lamb & coriander meatball with plum marmalade!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Anything sweet!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our dance floor reveal! The whole dance floor area is hidden from your guests all day long until the first dance begins - a truly unique feature which couples and guests love.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our staff. We are proud of each and every person who works here and receive such amazing feedback from couples and their guests about how helpful and friendly everyone is.
