Essex Wedding Planner at The White Hart


The Essex Barn at The White Hart is set amongst four and a half acres of landscaped grounds in beautiful Essex countryside.

During the Summer months you have the option of using the gazebo for your ceremony and your guests are free to enjoy the spacious gardens.

Of course with British weather being predictably unpredictable you can always have your wedding inside The Essex Barn as a back up in case the heavens open.


“This weekend the 18/08/2018 was my daughters wedding and she chose this venue for her full wedding ceromony and evening celebrations. We couldn’t have asked for a better venue. Everything was perfect, from the lovely hotel facilities, the rooms provided for the bridle party and the groomsman to get ready in.

As the weather was so nice the wedding ceremony was held outside in the beautiful grounds under a very attractive gazebo.

The barn was perfect for the wedding breakfast and can easily seat 100 people comfortably. My daughter and her partner had about 160 guests in the evening with a live band and Disco and even then it didn’t seem crowded.

What really made the day a great success were the lovely staff and in particular Abby who was the main go to person for the wedding. Her calm attitude and her experience in managing many weddings in the past ,gave gave us full confidence that things would run smoothly and they really did.
