Hylands offers the perfect wedding location; a spectacular Grade II* listed Georgian mansion and contemporary Grand Pavilion.
The variety of celebration spaces means we can accommodate up to 300 guests and guarantee you exclusive use of the space you choose. By hosting both ceremony and reception here, you and your guests can relax and enjoy our personalised hospitality and the convenience of one venue.
Licensed for civil ceremonies and receptions since 1999, we’ve built an unrivalled reputation for creating grand yet intimate weddings. We welcome large wedding parties, small gatherings and same sex marriages – and we also host cultural weddings. Our experienced wedding team are always on hand to help you make your big day the happiest day of your life. That’s just one of the many services we offer to help make Hylands one of the finest wedding venues in Essex.
Hylands Estate is over 250 years old and in the late 18th century, the owner commissioned landscape designer Humphry Repton to redesign the surrounding parkland and enlarge the house in line with the fashionable Romantic movement. Repton’s influence is still seen today, in the white stucco, neo-classical façade and in its natural, spacious exterior. A short walk from the house, our Pleasure Gardens offer colourful traditional and contemporary vistas which provide the perfect backdrop for wedding photos.
We’re just a couple of miles from the heart of Chelmsford, meaning our magnificent wedding venue offers quick transport links to London, Stansted Airport and the rest of East Anglia.
