11 Sep 2017

Fill your wedding with charm, ambience and character by choosing The Coach House, set within Marks Hall Estate in Coggeshall, as your venue

Promotional Feature

The Coach House is situated within Marks Hall, a 250 acre arboretum nestled within 2,500 acres of rural estate. An 18th century coach house with brick and exposed timber frames was once used to house horse drawn coaches for the Mansion House. With its own private garden, which flowers throughout the summer season, the coach house is filled with charm. The perfect location to hold your wedding.

The venue is licensed to conduct ceremonies in the flower garden under the romantic gazebo, under the three Chinese hats overlooking the flower garden, in the 18th century coach house or the smaller estate office board room. Set within 250 acres of arboretum, with fantastic landscapes from woodland, walled gardens, lakes and meadows. Couples are offered the chance to bring along their own suppliers, including caterers, so they can design their wedding day their way.

Customer testimonial:

"We got married at The Coach House and it was the happiest day of our lives. The setting is absolutely stunning and the facilities are spot on, but alongside this - what made The Coach House such a wonderful venue - was the amazing staff. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend getting married at beautiful Marks Hall, a truly beautiful setting." Abbe & Tom
