We’re delighted to announce that Wivenhoe House Hotel was named Hotel Wedding Venue of the Year at the prestigious Essex Wedding Awards 2024!

The awards were held this year at Chelmsford Racecourse to celebrate the success of Essex-based businesses in the wedding industry. Wivenhoe House Hotel was proudly nominated in five categories.

Oliver Brown, General Manager at Wivenhoe House Hotel, said: “I am delighted that we have been recognised as Hotel Wedding Venue of the Year at the Essex Wedding Awards 2024. Weddings at Wivenhoe House are very special and to deliver on expectations continuously, it takes a huge team effort, and we have a fabulous team to do that. From the moment the coordinator receives the enquiry to the arrival on the day, the meal and the first dance, no detail is left. Thank you to those who voted for us at Wivenhoe House Hotel.”

Wivenhoe House Hotel proudly works in partnership with the prestigious Edge Hotel School department at the University of Essex. The school’s motto ‘learn by doing’ lies at the centre of its teaching programme. Undergraduates at the School spend a large majority of their course gaining practical experience by shadowing the team of hospitality professionals at the hotel.

The Perfect Wedding Venue in Essex

Wivenhoe House Hotel, an 18th-century country house hotel, boasts 40 bedrooms, the Park Brasserie restaurant and event spaces. The gazebo is located on the Sunken Lawn and is the ideal setting for both intimate and large summer ceremonies or drinks receptions. From the gazebo guests can enjoy views of the historic parkland and the magnificent cork oak trees brought back to the Wivenhoe Park Estate by General Rebow over 200 years ago.

The Drawing room and Signatures room in the main house are traditionally used for wedding ceremonies or intimate breakfasts. With large bay windows offering spectacular views over the parkland, the historic rooms have an impressive fireplace and period features.
