Welcome wedding venue

A private country house wedding venue should combine style and elegance with stunning surroundings, whilst delivering plenty of WOW factor.

If you are looking for the height of luxury for your wedding celebrations then there is many a country house wedding venue to choose from across the UK. 

Whilst the beauty of the venue is of course important, it also needs to be run impeccably if you want to guarantee that your big day goes smoothly. 

Exclusivity and Privacy

With a long sweeping drive and secluded private grounds, a country house wedding venue should offer complete exclusivity to you and your guests throughout your entire wedding celebration.  The house and its grounds being private to you and only you. A peaceful haven where you can truly relax. 

However, consider whether your venue is conveniently located with good transport links to provide you with the best of both worlds.

A Grand Entrance

Country houses come in all shapes and sizes but ideally should have a grand entrance hall to welcome your guests, hinting at the elegance of the day that has yet to unfold. Draped with flower garlands or sparkling with candlelight it will also provide the perfect backdrop for the Bride to showcase the dress of her dreams.

Ceremonial Spaces Galore

Large historical houses should combine English style and tradition with romance, elegance, and stunning surroundings. You should expect to find ceremonial spaces in abundance, providing stunning locations, both indoors and out for a magnificent setting at any time of the year.

Wedding Reviews
We were booked to get married September 2020 but due to covid, we re-scheduled for September 2021. I wanted to say a huge thank you to the team at Baddow Park and especially Kelly – Group Operations Manager, for being so accommodating. We were very worried about the unknowns of having to re-arrange. However, Kelly and the team took that worry away. The process from having a “back up date” to confirming a new date in 21 was seamless, Kelly and her team were ALWAYS available via phone or email for a quick chat or to discuss the day in-depth. The upset of having to move our day never came as we knew the team had it all under control and that they would make our day even more special next year. We can’t wait to get married and celebrate at Baddow Park house with their fantastic team and gorgeous surroundings!

From our first visit to see Baddow Park even before all the renovations we were in love with it and knew this was the place we wanted to get married, not only was the venue and garden beautiful but Kelly made us feel so welcome we knew it would all go smoothly…   Then COVID happened and so close to our wedding day, all was arranged and we were waiting ready and excited for our wedding day, but in one day, id not only cancelled one wedding but prepared an alternative one, I wouldn’t have been able to do this without the flexibility of Baddow Park and Kelly’s support with all our questions and worries of “What do we do now”   She has kept in touch with us throughout the year as we have changed dates and ideas and at not one point has anything I have asked been a problem. Unfortunately a 2020 wedding is not possible so now we wait for the perfect wedding at Baddow Park in 2021!

What a magical wedding day we had at Baddow Park House, every single detail was perfect. From initial viewing to booking to pre-wedding preparation, you were all so helpful and supportive, nothing was too much trouble and no questions were left unanswered. The house is beautifully kept and the grounds exquisite, the atmosphere was lovely. Baddow Park is a truly beautiful place to get married.

From the moment we saw Baddow Park for the first time we knew this was exactly where we wanted to have our wedding reception. Combining beautiful grounds with the ability for us to personalise our day this was our perfect venue. We truly could not have asked for a better day and for all at Baddow Park House together with their suppliers who helped make the magic happen.
