Probably a bit late to join this thread but couldn't resist. I'm an essex girl born and bred now living in Eastwood. We're getting married on 28th September 2007 at Hylands House in Chelmsford. Getting soooooo excited now! Has anyone else booked Hylands House or been to function there? I know it's a bit late now but would like to hear all comments good and bad!!!!;\)
Hi VIK987Good to hear that someone else is from Basildon, I too am going to the wedding fare at the Holiday Inn.Well myself and H2B have booked Friern Manor for a thursday in Sept 2008, quote me had was about £4300, that included 47 people to the day and an extra 30 for the eve, includes a DJ and a pianist and a free hotel room for the night, so that least we haven't got to worry about that. We did look at Stockbrook Manor which was very cheap about £3500 but just didn't feel right for us. Ashwells in Brentwood is very nice and of a reasonable price. Crondon Park in Stock is lovely too however they quoted us £5300!!! Was abit over what we wanted to speak. Hope this helpsCheri
Yeah, another Hylands House bride. Was looking through this post and couldn't believe there was no-one else using Hylands House. We got engaged in August last year so only had a year to plan everything. Have you got everything booked now? Out of interest have you booked contractors off of their list?
libbysmum, I see you are getting married at Brentwood registry office, if your looking for a reception venue try Ashwells, www.ashwells.co.uk I'm getting married there 23.8.08 and its a lovely venue and not too expensive.dizzyb
Hello Kelly, So nice to finally hear of someone else getting married at Greenwoods!We absolutely loved the place when we went to look at it, as you say the staff are really friendly and helpful. We went for a meal there and the food is gorgeous, quite a few people I know have been there and have all raved about the food which can only be a good thing.We're getting married at All Saints Church in Hutton, we are having the marquee as we've got about 100 people to the day and another 30-40 in the evening so wouldn't of been able to not have it. Kelly xx
