The feel

Set in the rural heart of Essex, within easy reach of London, the M11 and Stansted Airport, Maidens Barn has been lovingly restored to create a stunning and versatile wedding venue, for memorable celebrations all year round.

Maidens Barn offers an authentic, country-style barn wedding venue that epitomises rural simplicity whilst still offering all the luxurious and modern features and style you expect from a first-class venue.

We have the space and facilities to cater for your entire day – from bridal preparation right through to a secret bridal Hideaway Cottage – perfect for your first night as ‘Mr and Mrs’. We can host intimate weddings and receptions as well as larger parties for up to 200 people.

As we are licensed for civil ceremonies you may choose to get married inside the splendid Oak Barn or outside, beneath the romantic flowering arbour

The magnificent vaulted wedding barn features huge windows, ancient beams and subtle lighting blending together old and new perfectly. Special and surprising touches can be found all over – from the unusual glass bead chandelier to the cosy upstairs gallery.

As a family-run business we pride ourselves on providing a very flexible and personal service that will ensure your wedding day goes just the way you want it to. Our experienced in-house chef and his team enjoy an enviable reputation of producing a variety of delicious dishes, using fresh, local produce. You can be confident that the whole team will be professional and helpful, offering excellent service leading up to, and during, your celebrations.

As we only host one event each day, you are assured of our full attention.

So if you are looking for a country barn wedding with plenty of style and charm, come visit us and experience just how perfect Maiden’s Barn will be for you.
