A stunning venue with the ‘wow’ factor, Gaynes Park is set in a family estate of more than 1,000 acres near Epping in Essex. Easily accessed from across the South East, it is just 10 minutes from both the M25 and M11 and at the end of the Central Line.
With sweeping views of the London skyline and surrounded by English countryside, farmland and woodland, Gaynes Park is a contemporary barn wedding venue in a traditional rural setting.
An elegant and sophisticated venue that is truly unique, Gaynes Park boasts immaculately restored listed barns, an Orangery, beautiful gardens and boutique luxury accommodation.
Weddings can take place in one of three locations: the Orangery, Gather Barn or Mill Barn. The beautiful Orangery is located in the walled garden on the site of an old Victorian conservatory and is a stylish building with exposed oak beams and central double doors that maximise natural light, warmth, ambience and views to the gardens. It is approached from the long, central ‘garden aisle’ which winds through the walled gardens to finish at the conservatory doors ensuring a dramatic entrance for the bride.
The magnificent and spacious Mill Barn is supported by four tree trunks that are hundreds of years old. Enhanced with floor-to-ceiling windows at the entrance and overlooking the courtyard at the rear, the barn is a fantastic choice for both the ceremony and wedding breakfast. Flooded with natural light, it has high vaulted ceilings and a mezzanine gallery with Raj-style furniture and table lanterns that makes it a perfect location for those looking to chill out or take a break from the dancing without missing a thing.
Providing the grand entrance to Mill Barn is Gather Barn; an attractive open-sided listed building which is surrounded by elegant planters and foliage and offers an idyllic setting for an outside ceremony. From dusk, it is attractively lit with twinkling fairy lights and uplighters for magical effect.
As stunning as the barns themselves are the grounds at Gaynes Park, which are breath-taking. The Long Walk boasts year-round colour thanks to established herbaceous borders, traditional roses, bulbs and perennial shrubs. An enchanting place to reflect before the ceremony and for the first photos after the exchange of vows, it is an oasis of calm with its well-tended borders and colourful blooms. Equally impressive is the Walled Garden, which is a lovely location for mingling with a drinks reception or to play garden games.
The Apple Loft Cottage, which has been lovingly restored to an exceptional standard with an elegant, stylish and luxurious interior is available for the bride, and her attendants to apply the finishing touches before the ceremony or to freshen up during the day. The excitement will build as the bride leaves Apple Loft and makes her way to the picturesque Heart Gate, stopping for a few final photographs before she takes her vows.
The Coach House, located nearby, is available for couples and their guests, if required, on the night of the wedding. With 10 luxurious ensuite bedrooms and a stunning large reception area with comfortable seating and dining area to enjoy breakfast the next morning.
Gaynes Park offers many romantic locations for special photographs. From the Heart Gate to the Pavilion with its hundreds of fairy lights, the new ‘London lookout’ with sweeping views of the Capital’s skyline, and the Walled Garden and grounds, photographers will not be short of inspiration and the images will illustrate the magic of the day.
With its serene atmosphere and country views, Gaynes Park could be miles from anywhere. This stunning wedding venue and all it offers for a fabulous country barn wedding is just a stone’s throw from London and easily accessible from all areas across the South East.
