As a wedding supplier who has worked at 17th century Blake Hall weddings multiple times in the past we can wholeheartedly recommend it. Not only is it one of the most stunningly restored barn venues around but it’s run by a really friendly, approachable team. The team is headed up by the wonderful Austin who is great to have around on the day in charge of things.

There is plenty of car parking at the venue on site, right next to the venue. There are no awkward long walks. Important if it is unfortunately raining on the wedding day. The venue itself is situated just off Epping Road. Sat Nav the A414 at Chipping Ongar, between Chelmsford and the M11 motorway. Get the exact location from Google here.
Despite the venues proximity to great road links, the gardens and woodland remain entirely peaceful thanks to the sites 60 acre setting. The grounds are a perfect combination of open space, garden detailing, a pond and picturesque buildings. Each of these parts lends itself to a particular time point in the normal wedding day timeline. The coach house provides space, comfort and a relaxed feel to any morning bridal preparations. It includes a large dedicated hair and makeup room any bride would be happy with.
Picturesque video spots
Away from the barn areas is a tree swing. Normally it is decorated with flowers creating a lovely photo and video opportunity. There are also well kept and planted gardens and hedge rows around here to meander through. Again create fabulous spots for images.
The pond sits to the back of the venue between the barns and provides a nice place for a moment of quiet reflection. Taking time out is something often overlooked on a wedding day. The barns themselves provide all the coverage you need for a service and wedding breakfast. However, should you also wish an outdoor approach in good weather the saddlery provides the canopy to allow you to do this. There’s even a church should you want a church wedding. It is but a short walk away from the front of the venue. Proof that Blake Hall Weddings really is the wedding venue fit for almost anyone.
