Full Description
The Barns at Lodge Farm is the perfect rural oasis just a stone's throw from the big city, hidden in amongst the arable land that has been worked by the Graham family for nearly 100 years. We only offer exclusive use packages, giving you complete flexibility to use each space within the venue exactly as you wish. Fully licensed for civil wedding ceremonies in a number of different barns, we can host anywhere from 50 to 250 guests, including a field for glamping overnight if you want to continue the party! We are open all year round, and all our packages give you access to the venue from 1pm the day before your wedding until 11am the day afterwards, so we only host a maximum of three weddings a week. As a result, peak weekend dates do get snapped up quickly, so please do get in touch to avoid disappointment! As a full working arable farm as well as a wedding and events venue, we have a strong commitment to sustainability and are working on an exciting programme of renovation work to ensure the venue runs in an environmentally sensitive and carbon neutral manner. We are a small, family-run business, and pride ourselves on providing the most personal and professional service possible - we are firm believers that no two couples are the same and so each wedding should also be unique, and we pride ourselves on making that happen.

A beautiful venue with a beautiful team behind it
This is an excellent wedding venue, from the location to the people behind the business. My husband and I were due to get married here in 2020 and circumstances meant we had to postpone. The Barns is a super warm venue that is so beautifully put together and crafted by the team. The space is truly magical! And everyone working there is so supportive and ready to help make your big day as special as can be. Could not recommend enough!!

Can we do it again please?!
If you could repeat days, we would pick our wedding...what an incredible day it was. From the moment we walked onto Lodge Farm we knew it was the venue for us, and the lovely Bryony made us feel that way even more so. She may well be one of the loveliest people we have ever met. She has so much passion and enthusiasm for the Barns and each couple she meets, and the wonderful team she has around her are just the same. We had a clear vision in our heads of how we wanted the Barns to look for our wedding, and Bryony and her team made that happen. They shared our excitement, and were so proud to be part of making our vision a reality, something that meant so much. Nothing was too much trouble, and we honestly couldn’t have wished for our day to go any better. We trusted them all explicitly, they made sure everything ran as it should, and because of that we got to soak up and enjoy every second of the day and night. The bar staff even got on board with our subtle Marvel theme we had going and dressed up....the best surprise!!! Bryony, her team, and the wonderful Barns are truly something special. We will cherish our wedding day, and all of the time spent with them, forever. We will never be able to put into words how grateful we are to have been able to create such incredible memories, made even more so by having the love and support from Bryony and her amazing team.

Stunning Venue. Incredible Team. Perfect Day!
We got married at Lodge Farm earlier this month and have nothing but wonderful things to say about the venue and the team. Bryony really helped us to craft our perfect day, and the whole team were so accommodating of all our requests and requirements. We had a festival-style wedding with Tipis, firepits, rows of huge silk flags. Our own mini-Glastonbury! Lodge Farm was the perfect location with its stunning field overlooking the rolling hills of the Essex countryside. Can't recommend highly enough!

Nothing but fun!
From the minute we met with Bryony, we knew we had found the ideal venue of our dreams. We almost wanted to marry her! Her enthusiasm, warmth and positive energy, framed her beautiful farm in all its glory, I’m certain we viewed in it winter but it felt like a summers day. This venue is to die for, if you want to get married in a field or have a festival themed wedding there’s no greater landscape or better venue. We managed to fit 22 bell tents, a chill area, dance tent, as well as a complete fairground and still had bundles of space. We married in one of the barns that comfortably fitted our 150 guests all seated. Then had a sit-down meal, in the largest of the barns. With oodles of space to spare. Our guest made use of her VIP BAR and 5-star toilets. Which many people were posting selfies on insta with! No bad for a barn eh! We loved the venue not just because of the outside facilities but also that if it rained we had a great back up plan. But most of all because Bryony was just magic. Thanks for making our special day epic. Love Mr & Mrs Murphy

The venue we were always looking for!
So glad we found this venue! After seeing quite a few venues, we fell in love with the barns and Bryony straight away! Such a unique venue that lets you create you own style and Bryony is so helpful and enthusiastic, she made everything seem easy. Our day couldn't have been better with amazing weather and the venue team making sure everything went smoothly. All the venue staff went the extra mile and the bar staff made our guests feel very welcome. We had outside caterers, games on the field and a camping village all smoothly organized and set up. Thank you everyone at the Barns, Love Mr & Mrs O'Connor :-)

Would give more than 5 stars if I could!
We really could not have been happier with our wedding at Lodge Farm. The venue itself is so unique and special and we really appreciated the freedom that we had to be able to set everything up exactly as we wanted it. We were able to choose everything, from decorations to food, to ensure the day was very personal to us. As well as the farm being a truly beautiful setting, what made this whole experience so much more special for us was Bryony and the team. She is passionate and thoughtful and went above and beyond from day one to make sure we had our absolute dream wedding!
