Discover the Baddow Park House Experience.

Group Operations Manager Kelly Sinnott, talks about what makes this exclusive use wedding venue in the heart of Essex so very unique.

A unique place to celebrate

“Since Baddow Park House underwent extensive renovations in 2019 it has been completely transformed and has become the most unique venue in Essex to offer exclusive weddings. I couldn’t imagine working anywhere else”.

Kelly Welcomes you to our Exclusive Use Wedding Venue

“Baddow Park House is a private country house in Essex. Built in 1890 it hosts beautiful bespoke weddings.  In my role as Group Operations Manager, I’m lucky enough to spend the majority of my week at this fabulous property and the gardens that surround it”.

Complete privacy throughout your stay
“As an exclusive use wedding venue, Baddow Park House is for hire for as long as you wish. Our historic house and gardens offer seclusion and a huge sense of elegance.  This is something that our couples and their guests both love. Everyone who stays with us is made to feel special. The house provides the perfect combination of grandeur with the warm welcome of a large country house. Everyone can relax and truly enjoy their time here in complete privacy”.

“With beautiful rolling grounds perfect on a sunny day, and charming rooms in the house, luxury bedrooms for our guests, and the most breathtaking orangery for our ceremony and wedding breakfast, there wasn’t a box that couldn’t be ticked”.

the wedding salon


“Having the Salon completed in 2021 was very exciting.

Getting ready for your wedding ceremony can be a nerve-wracking, emotional, and laughter-filled few hours for any bride.  So, we are thrilled to be able to provide a beautiful, purpose-built space where the bride and her party can pamper and prepare.

The Salon provides large comfortable sofas, separate make-up stations, mirrors, and plenty of natural light. It’s large enough for the biggest of bridal parties as well as the hairdressers and makeup artists”.


“There are many beautiful rooms in the house. Each one has been individually designed and has its own character. However, the bridal suite is definitely my favourite.

It’s luxuriously designed and the furnishings are truly exquisite. The large bay windows look out across the gardens and allow for natural light to flood in. On a day when you want to feel like the most important couple in the world this room truly delivers”.

“The attention to detail is on another level, and it’s clear so see that no expense has been spared”.

outdoor wedding venue in essex


“Our recent garden renovations have included some very unique features. The installation of a beautiful oak pavilion with a Welsh slate roof creates a glorious summer ceremony space for our couples.

Also, a large natural stone terrace has been laid. This leads out from the orangery, the perfect place for cocktails and canapés. Additionally, we have included two new outdoor entertaining areas for garden celebrations. The log shed bar with BBQ and wood-fired pizza oven can be transformed into a gin or cocktail bar and is often the scene of much merry-making. Our fire pit offers guests respite from the dance floor and a cozy place to chat”.


“Another incredible feature to the property has been our new ultra-luxe Orangery with Art Deco-styled bar. This offers a further choice to our selection of ceremony locations and also provides a spectacular space for your wedding reception, seating up to 150 guests.

What’s so lovely about the Orangery is that it provides a versatile, sophisticated area that can be styled according to your wishes at any time of the year. We recently hosted an Italian-themed wedding with the Orangery as a backdrop, it was just perfect!

“The Orangery is jaw-droppingly beautiful and so unique to Essex, you won’t find another venue as stunning as this in the county (we looked at many before finding Baddow Park House!)”

exclusive wedding dining


“A wedding would not be a wedding without a feast, which I know many of the guests look forward to.

This is where our very talented resident caterers step in. I am constantly thrilled by the reviews we receive from our couples who have described their dining experience as nothing short of phenomenal. If you need a little inspiration or guidance, the team will be there to talk you through the options available”.


“Baddow Park House is an exclusive wedding venue with accommodation sleeping up to 30 guests. All the rooms have been lovingly restored and newly furnished. You will find feature beds, refined fabrics, and lavish marble bathrooms throughout.

The ground floor offers a choice of ceremony locations and many elegant entertaining spaces. Set in the center of the house is the grand staircase. I never tire of seeing our brides gliding down the flower-decked stairs on their big day. It really is such a special moment, it’s hard not to get caught up in all the excitement.

We had the most unbelievably surreal weekend. Everything we ever could have imagined and more – everyone had so much fun and it was such a beautiful day. We’ve had people endlessly raving about the venue, food, and staff.

the gardens at exclusive wedding venue


“I feel privileged to be a part of an incredible team at Baddow Park House. It’s our mission to work together, creating fabulous and unique weddings. Selected from the catering, hospitality, and wedding industries, they are a talented group of people who are fully committed to providing a personal and seamless service.

It’s wonderful that couples can completely relax, knowing that because they’ve chosen our exclusive use wedding venue, their special day will be a private celebration. They can rely on the fact that the entire venue team will be dedicated to them and their guests throughout their stay”.


“At Baddow Park House we love dogs and we also know that many of our couples do too! So I understand that leaving your dog at home on such a special day can feel like you’re leaving out an important family member. We are a dog-friendly exclusive use wedding venue. We welcome your pets to be a part of your day.

It’s my experience that bringing your pet can reduce anxious moments before the ceremony. If things get emotional they can certainly lighten the mood.  We love making a fuss of wedding day pooches and have helped couple’s dogs walk down the aisle, facilitated dogs being ring bearers, and have provided assistance in planning the couple’s grand entrance, which of course included their four-legged best friend”.
