Houchins is a beautiful Grade 2* listed 15th Century farmhouse. This beautiful venue prides itself on being one of the most original wedding venues in Essex. For instance, it has luxurious listed accommodation for the bridal party. Additionally, it has a lovingly-restored wedding barn designed in a unique modern style.
Weddings booked at this unique venue have exclusive use for the entire day of your wedding. Houchins is also licensed for civil ceremonies both inside and outside for up to 110 people. The main reception suite can accommodate seating for 150+ guests.
A feature we particularly love at here is their stunning gardens and grounds which offer a perfect setting for your wedding photographs. From weeping willows and secluded walled gardens with water features set in beautiful fields, this has to be one of the most picturesque venues in Essex. We have shot many weddings at this venue and no matter what the British weather has thrown at us we have always been able to capture beautiful images for our couples. In the gallery below take a peek at one wedding where the rain was relentless but the pictures where some of our favorites of the year. This is one venue we can recommend for weddings all year round.
You can also make use of overnight accommodation in the farmhouse for 16 friends and family. The bride and groom can enjoy a separate, secluded honeymoon lodge adjacent to the farmhouse. Why don’t you give them a call today to book a visit to this gorgeous wedding venue.
