Thorpe-Le-Soken, Essex

Welcome to Villiers Barn, Essex

.... a venue I'm very proud to be recommended by.

Scotts Venue Spotlight!

Villiers Barn is a brand new Wedding & Events venue for Essex and it's already one of most talked about venues in the industry.

Following a huge influx of bookings at Villiers, I was very lucky to be invited to the venue by Jonathan & Juliet for a grand tour. The historic character, tranquil lakes and beautiful gardens really does put this venue in a league of it's own.

Founders, Barry and Juliet Day, come with 25 years of industry and culinary experience, having managed 100s of weddings each year. As a family, and a team, they take great pride and care in what they do so they can offer the very best for their couples and guests, and provide a service tailored to each couple to create their perfect setting for their special day.

Villiers Barn comes complete with a licenced ceremony room, a grand barn to host wedding breakfast and reception, honeymoon suite along with the most perfectly placed outdoor area surrounded by incredible views.

The Ceremony Room

"a light and airy contemporary space"

Villiers Barn is fully registered to host civil ceremonies in our converted ceremony room. The ceremony room has been converted from its original stable block, into a light and airy contemporary space. It is attached but separate from the main barn to enhance even more excitement when walking through for your wedding breakfast. If you are seeking a Church wedding, please do let them know so they can provide you with a list of local Churches.

The Grand Barn

"As you drive down the long tree-lined entrance you are met with the Georgian house standing grand at its head"

Villiers is one of the grandest Grade II listed barns to be converted in Essex and still today, it presents itself with historic charm, as well as, modern appeal. This beautifully restored 7-bay barn will play a huge part in celebrating your memorable day with your loved ones.

As you drive down the long tree-lined drive you are met with the Georgian house standing grand at it's head. Once you make your way up the path the secluded spaces at the heart of this magnificent estate will have you visualising the most important day of your life. Villiers offers a traditional yet modern setting with the ideal elements to create the perfect venue for your Wedding.

Duchess of Cleveland - Barbara Villiers and the notorious mistress of Charles II, is believed to of lived on the estate in the 16th century and 'The Uncrowned Queen' as she was known, would surely have approved of the extensive work that has been carried out to transform the former stables into a stunning barn to now play host to your magical day.

The venue is located just 20 minutes from the A12 and has direct train links from London Liverpool Street, Stratford, Shenfield & Colchester and is only a 2 minute car journey from Villiers Barn.

Bridal & Honeymoon Suite

"the perfect place to spend your first night as a married couple"

This former coach house has been transformed into a stunning Bridal & Honeymoon Suite which sits beautifully between a lovely courtyard and swimming pool perfect for photo opportunities. It's a great place for you to prepare with your bridal party and also offers overnight accomodation for the newly wed couple. It includes a Kitchenette, stylish bathroom and an airy sitting room where the bridal party can get ready with seating, mirrors and a dressing table.
