We got information on all the places in Essex, and so many of them were astronomical prices. In the end we went to view the ones we knew we could afford and that had a good feeling. Leez Priory is gorgeous, but its a very grand venue, and although I liked the idea of that, when we visited I felt intimidated, which isnt the right vibe! Crondon Park is massive, costs a fortune, but is very pretty. Stock Brook Manor is nice, but as I kinda worked there for a little while I didnt fancy getting married there. Finally decided on Maidens Barn, High Easter, because it was basically a blank canvas and we could do what we wanted, but without the hassel of a marquee! You are limited to using their suppliers, only thing they ask is that the caterers have either worked there before or pay a £500 refundable deposit. I have done so much research trying to sort this, is theres anything you need help with or need some recommendations I'll be happy to help!!
