The area surrounding Colchester is home to some beautiful wedding venues and this Colchester wedding venue is no different. Houchins is an idyllic Colchester wedding venue set in the beautiful Essex countryside. Houchins is a charming, characterful and rich in history Colchester wedding venue – Oliver Cromwell was rumoured to have stayed here! Houchins is centered around a historic grade II listed 17th century farmhouse built by Flemish clothiers in the 1610’s, which explains the farmhouse’s unique façade. Add to this the lovingly restored wedding barn (erected by the current owners’ grandfather) and you get the perfect mix of heritage and modern chic that made this Colchester wedding venue.
Being an Essex wedding photographer is a fab job especially when you get to work at stunning Colchester wedding venues like Houchins. If you’re looking for a Colchester wedding venue that has the feel of an outdoor wedding but also with a bit more structure and a place inside for guests to retreat out of the rain/sun (depending on the ever changing UK weather) then Houchins will tick all of your boxes. The ceremonies at Houchins usually take place under the stretch tent that sits amongst the beautifully manicured gardens. Guests can then walk over to the terrace where drinks + canapés are served and then flow into the wedding breakfast/reception inside the barn. The great thing about this Colchester wedding venue is that everything is in one place and so close together, so no losing your guests or location confusion!
This Colchester wedding venue has great travel connections; situated just off the A120 the location is super easy to find for those who have not been before and just 35 minutes from Stansted Airport.
