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.

Facilities

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.

Civil Ceremonies

Depending on your capacity needs, Braxted Park has a number of licensed rooms within the main house. For the summer months, you are able to hold your ceremony in the gorgeous Orangery, with its wide views across the park lawns, and spectacular Roman-inspired interior. Or, opt for the delightful summer house, set in the Lower Walled Knott Garden and benefitting from lush greenery and picturesque surroundings.

Reception Facilities

Following your ceremony your guests will be invited to a drinks reception in the restored Walled Garden. 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.

The three-course wedding breakfast will be served in the garden Pavilion, which can hold up to 300 guests banquet style. This spectacular space will then be transformed for your evening reception, with specialised lighting inside the Pavilion and dotted around the gardens to create whatever atmosphere you desire.

For weddings with 30 to 50 guests, Braxted Park offer an intimate Monday-Thursday package to include the hire of the Orangery and Lantern Room, drinks and canapés for after the ceremony, the wedding breakfast and an evening buffet.

    Adam and I could not have asked for any more from Braxted Park for our wedding on March 25th. The staff were fantastic in the lead up to the big day and they made sure our day ran seamlessly from start to finish. Our day was absolutely perfect and we had so many compliments on the venue. Get married here. It really is a stunning venue with so much to offer.

  • Margaret Graham - 27/03/2018

    Fantastic venue, lovely inside & out. Loved the garden lighting & we were lucky that it was just about warm enough wearing a coat or a wrap to stroll around them when they were lit up. Delicious food, Friendly staff & also very helpful when we had taxi problem, thought we were going to have to book a room to stay over!

  • Rob Ashfield - 11/02/2018

    What a lovely fantastic venue, Excellent food and nice friendly staff.

  • Miriam Ahmad - 11/12/2017

    I got married at Braxted park on the 6th August, words can’t honestly express how amazing the day was and how beautiful the grounds are! The staff were exceptional and helped us with every detail and were so lovely and friendly. Tiffany was our front of house manager on the day and she was amazing! Honestly, it’s an amazing venue, now looking back at my wedding pictures I’m amazed at how lovely everything was! Definitely would recommend to everyone.

  • Corinna Lee Renton - 24/11/2017

    My husband and I got married in Braxted Park on November 4th. Our experience from start to finish exceeded all expectations, absolute perfection! Victoria showed us around and made sure everything was organised before the day, she really made us feel like we were in safe hands. Tiffany was with us on the day and ensured that everything ran smoothly, I could relax fully on the day knowing she was around. All the members of staff are so friendly and many of our guests commented on this.
    The venue itself is breathtaking, I loved the orangery and pavilion and the grounds outside are so picturesque. The bridal cottage is also amazing. Everyone had the best time and that's all thanks to the Braxted Park staff and the way the venue is run. We couldn't ask for a better start to married life, thank you so much!!!

  • Emma-Louise Williams - 8/11/2017

    Our wedding was held at Braxted Park on the 14th October and we can honestly say it was the best day of our lives! We truly believe we found our dream venue and it lived up to everything we wanted and more. As soon as we came to visit it last October, we knew straight away we didn’t need to see any other venues-we had found the one. Not only is it absolutely gorgeous but the staff were amazing from day 1. Michelle was very helpful from the first day we came to visit and was always on hand to answer any questions we had (and there was a lot!). We were blown away by Jonathon and Caroline on the day, as we believe they played a lead role in making our wedding run smoothly from start to finish. Nothing we asked for was too much trouble and it meant we could relax and enjoy the day. Bolly and I would 100% recommend this venue to any couple looking to get married and wish we could find another excuse to come back!
    Thank you x

    My husband and I were married at Braxted Park on 6th May 2017 and we could not have asked for the day to have been any better! From the moment we first visited Braxted Park we both knew it was the venue for us - the level of service & support received both from Victoria during our first viewing through to the day itself, along with Jonathan our front of house manager, was exceptional! The day ran without a hitch allowing us both to relax and enjoy the day - this could not have happened without the efforts and support of Victoria and Jonathan. The venue itself is stunning and was a perfect size and layout for the day we had in mind. Having All Saints Church on site was the icing on the cake. Highly recommend this venue to anybody planning their wedding - you will not be disappointed!

  • Hannah Moody - 28/09/2017

    My wedding was here on the 28th August, words cannot explain how perfect the whole day was. I can't imagine how stressful getting married would have been without the help from everyone at Braxted Park! They made everything so easy and helped through every step. The day ran like clockwork but all of our guests praised us on what a relaxed day it was, that was all down to the careful planning going on behind the scenes. They went above and beyond to make sure every last person was happy, comfortable especially my husband and I. Couldn't imagine having our special day anywhere else. Literally was the best day ever!! Highly recommend this venue

    My sister got married here on 24th August and it was absolutely amazing! Johnathan was brilliant and so helpful and all staff were lovely. The grounds are stunning and had a great flow for all of the different parts of the wedding. We also stayed in the rooms at the venue which are lovely - breakfast was amazing in the morning. A huge thank you for making the day such a memorable one (if I got married again, it would be here!)

    How do you even begin to thank them!! Braxted Park was amazing from start to finish, the grounds are absolutely stunning, the people are so kind and helpful!

  • Sarah Oakes - 12/05/2017

    It was all amazing from day one.. this was the first wedding venue we looked at and immediately we were both blown away by the venue, grounds and how welcomed we were by Victoria. All through our planning and organisation the team have always adviced and helped in every way possible. Our day went so smoothly, no hiccups it was absolutely everything we wanted, Victoria, Janet and Tiffany made it PERFECT for us as they took on board all the things we have asked for, Tiffany made me a relaxed Bride as she was always reassuring everything was under control which was fantastic. They really do treat you 100% as individuals and will meet your dream wedding in every way you desire. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this venue as it's out of this world to other couples who are looking for that wow factor to their special day. So sad our day is over with - we want to do it all again. Thanks again Braxted Park xx

  • 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.

  • Tamsin and Greg

    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.
