Unique wedding venue with accommodation in Essex
Your dream rustic country wedding reception is waiting for you at The Chichester Hotel – a historic barn wedding venue and hotel in Wickford, Essex. Our dedicated wedding planners will help you fulfil your heart’s desires. We have a selection of private rooms available for ceremonies and receptions for up to 140 guests – so whether it is an intimate family celebration, same sex wedding or civil partnership, we have the perfect room for you.
Our rustic Essex Barn is a traditional style converted barn wedding venue with high vaulted and oak beamed ceilings. The Chichester Suite has beautifully restored Tudor beams, which really add character to the space. Both function rooms for hire have their own entrance separate from the hotel reception, and each have their own bar for a private wedding experience. Our team of event chefs know exactly what food and drink works well for weddings; from delicious canapés and sparkling wines to a sumptuous buffet to keep your guests dancing all night long. Our Bridal Suite is available for you to relax in prior to the big day, and also for a peaceful first night as a married couple. With other guest bedrooms on-site, your friends and family are welcome to stay with us too
