History

The grounds on which the present house stands today were first owned by the Countess of Pembroke, and was recorded in 1342 as being a deer park. Over the next few centuries, the estate was extended to cover 300 acres of land, and the house went through minimal changes.

In the 18th century the estate was passed to the Du Cane family, who carried out extensive work to the house and gardens, and it was the third generation of this family who renamed the house Braxted Park.

The team of dedicated wedding planners at Braxted Park are able to advise you on all aspect of your day, from recommending suppliers to making provisions in the event of a sudden downpour.

With beautiful flora and cascading water features, the garden makes for a stunning setting to treat your guests to delicious canapés and fine drinks, while you make the most of the fantastic photo opportunities in the grounds of the park.

Reviews

  • Mr and Mrs Cameron

    Clare and I are were very impressed with the level of service provided to us on the day and also in the lead up to the wedding. We thought the planning was excellent, we felt totally at ease that everything was in hand and under control, it really made the week before the wedding a fairly stress free experience. We had a lot of comments on how amazing the venue was and how well run the day was. I would highly recommend Braxted Park as a venue for a wedding. Janet, I must say was lovely and made Clare and I feel totally as ease, she was a true star. The whole day ran like clockwork, everything was faultless.

    We are writing to say how pleased we were, everything from early morning preparation, through to the day and evening reception, was a wonderful experience. Everyone who attended said they had a fabulous time. Janet managed everything with efficiency, confidence and grace and she carried us smoothly through the day. Braxted Park is an amazing venue and we think it is complemented by an amazing body of staff.
