The feel

Located in Essex, Houchins is a grade II* listed farmhouse which exudes elegance and charm to provide the perfect wedding venue for your very special day. Although only opened in 2014, Houchins is owned and managed by the same team who have successfully run Dove Barn in Suffolk for the past ten years, so you can rest assured that your day is in safe, experienced hands.

Your wedding day at Houchins will be truly unforgettable. The venue’s wonderful barns have been designed so that your celebrations flow seamlessly from “I do” to the last dance of the evening.

The Foundry is licensed to hold civil ceremonies with between 12 and 120 guests. The room can be transformed in the evening to provide the perfect reception space for up to 200 people to dance and celebrate into the night. The adjoining Chitting Shed is ideal for a relaxed drinks reception, boasting large glass doors which open out onto the beautiful terrace and gardens.

For your wedding breakfast, The Grainstore can accommodate up to 150 seated guests. The space has high ceilings and a mezzanine gallery for additional space and boasts a large fireplace for a rustic atmosphere.

Between May and September, you can opt to have a romantic outdoor ceremony in the Loggia. The grand marquee connects to the Loggia for a fantastic reception space, protected from the unpredictable British weather.

The bridal party can enjoy luxurious accommodation in the elegant farmhouse just 50 metres from the venue. The stylish house has been restored to offer a peaceful and comfortable night’s stay in a self-catering style bed and breakfast. Houchins will also provide a complimentary breakfast hamper with fresh fruit, juices, local artisan breads and cereal to the overnight guests.
