The only way is an Essex wedding

Wedding couple at Gosfield

If there’s one thing the people of Essex know how to do, it’s to have a good time. Famous for its indulgent celebrations, bold fashion and large-scale events, Essex has earned itself a reputation as one of the best places in the country to hold an extravagant party.

As a result, the county is a popular choice for couples looking to hold an unforgettable wedding. Outstanding venues, beautiful countryside and well-developed entertainment and catering industries make Essex the ideal setting for a spectacular do. So if you’re looking for the perfect setting for your dream wedding, Essex really is the only way to go.

Growing reputation

Though Essex has always been famous for its vibrant nightlife and glamorous locals, programmes like The Only Way is Essex have raised the county’s profile even further in the past few years. The fashions, locations and looks of the party-loving cast have influenced weddings across the country, with many couples taking a leaf out of TOWIE’s over-the-top aesthetics to create their own indulgent wedding look.


Thanks to its stunning countryside, rich history and popularity as a wedding destination, Essex has more than its fair share of outstanding venues. One of the best is Gosfield Hall, an historic period property set in the county’s beautiful landscape. This exclusive use venue gives couples the chance to be Lord and Lady of the manor for the duration of their celebration, giving them the Essex wedding they’ve always dreamed of.

As well as beautiful exteriors and breathtaking settings, Gosfield Hall also boasts landscaped gardens, large event spaces and sumptuous interiors.

A grooms suit


When it comes to glamour, Essex is hard to beat. Both the women and the men of the county have long been known for their fashion sense and programmes like TOWIE have only increased awareness of the Essex look. Exclusive use venues are ideal for couples who want a bit of authentic Essex glamour. Gosfield Hall venue can be decorated and adapted to suit the couple, and with no other events or patrons at the venue, wedding parties can enjoy the spectacular grounds all to themselves.


There are a number of trends making themselves felt in venues across Essex. With one of TOWIE’s most famous stars, Mark Wright, getting married last year, it’s no surprise that his sleek and stylish look as been influencing grooms across the country. Like Wedding Ideas Mag said, “channelling their inner Bond, Mark and his groomsmen looked every bit the part, and as wedding season gets into full swing, we couldn’t blame people for wanting to copy”.

Other trends we’re seeing more and more in Essex include the incorporation of ‘green’ decorations, bespoke and personalised accessories and Instagrammable elements.
