How luxury wedding venue Braxted Park is helping fellow wedding suppliers across the country

At the end of a breath-taking tree-lined driveway lies the grand house, a secret walled garden, an enchanting pavilion and exquisite orangery; the perfect backdrop for your wedding whether intimate or grand, traditional or modern. The venue distinctively yours for the day.

What's your top tip for couples looking for a wedding venue?
Take the time to think about what is most important to you on your wedding day. Is it a fantastic evening reception where you can dance the night away, or for your guests to be wowed with the setting, or maybe to indulge your taste buds with fantastic food? Once you have decided that, you can ensure your venue fits perfectly with your day. 

How have you adapted your business during the pandemic?
We hosted an incredible drive-in wedding, where the couple had the ceremony live-streamed to hundreds of guests parked in cars on our grounds – we can now offer live-streaming packages for any wedding ceremony. We also have a fantastic small-wedding package to ensure all those couples who are happy to get married under restrictions can do so as soon as it is allowed.

There are two things we have put in place to support those who have struggled this year with the coronavirus pandemic. The Association of British Wedding Business (ABWB) was started as an association of wedding suppliers that were, and still are, feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our industry. The aim is to support members with advice, as well as act as a liaison between the industry and the government.

The Wedding Venues Support Group is a group that has been set up to support solely wedding venues. WVSG is an industry-wide wedding venues initiative and an incorporated company working towards providing legal defence advice and making representations to government in the interests of its members.
