Full Description
Here at Maidens Barn we have the space and facilities to cater for your entire day – from preparation right through to a secret bridal Hideaway Cottage – perfect for your first night as ‘Mr and Mrs’. We are licensed for civil wedding ceremonies inside the stunning new Oak Barn and of course, for outdoor weddings in the garden underneath the flowering wedding arbour. The stunning new Oak Barn provides the perfect setting for both intimate weddings in Essex as well as larger wedding celebrations, easily seating up to 200 people if necessary. Chairs can be arranged with 6 on each side of the aisle in a traditional format or in a more relaxed curve if you prefer. The stunningly simple space within the Oak Barn has a high, beamed roof and picture window offers a magnificent space for wedding ceremonies. The numerous French doors open out onto the courtyard allowing the outside, in! Again, this space can be adapted perfectly for intimate weddings or larger wedding ceremonies – the choice is yours. Guests can be seated facing the picture windows in various configurations (depending on your numbers) and all looking out onto the ancient Oak Tree in the Bridal garden. We also have accommodation being built with 13 guest room that we be up and running early 2018! This is a warm and intimate wedding ceremony venue, providing a blank canvas for you to decorate. Rustic arches and terracotta flower pots work well within this space but so do white aisle runners and modern pedestals.
