The Coach HouseBuilt in the 18th Century, The Coach House with traditional oak beams, mellow brickwork and beautifully tended gardens filled with beguiling blooms, provides a very charming setting to celebrate weddings. The interior of The Coach House is filled with ambience and character; it has three beautiful arch doors that lead onto the terrace which overlooks the stunning garden. Couples can marry in a romantic gazebo in this private garden, surrounded by carefully cultivated plants that flower throughout the summer season. The Coach House is set within 200 acres of Gardens and Arboretum at Marks Hall, an unmissable attraction in the Essex countryside, with an enviable collection of mature trees, woodland and leafy paths. The Coach House can seat 140 for a civil ceremony and wedding breakfast and up to 200 for the evening reception. A perfect place to create special memories.

The Coach house at Marks Hall is our favourite ever Venue to work at. Not only are the Vast grounds just Beautiful and the coach house so very pretty but the staff are just amazing at what they do. They are so very attentive and we have seen at 1st hand just how over and above they go for every couple. They truly do care. They do not treat every wedding the same, they treat each day as individual as their couples are and go out of their way to make the day perfect. They have rushed out to get lavender that wasn't delivered by a florist as the bride was desperate to have some on tables as it was a reminder of her late grandmother and then not even mentioned that it was them that ensured it happened for her, they make sure every couple has their favourite drink in their hand when they go for photos on the golf buggy and fix wonky wedding cakes to name just a few examples They look after the vendors who work there in a way that we haven't seen before, we are made to feel like part of the team, made truly welcome ...a few times after we have shot a late wedding we are packed off with red bull to make sure we stay awake for our journey and always receive a message the next day thanking us for our hard work When Helen lost her phone during couple portraits but had to carry on with photographing speeches regardless, the girls went out in the buggy and found the phone for her - no mean feat when you consider how huge the grounds are. When Dani became quite poorly at the end of the night it was the lovely girls at the coach house that looked after her, went to get her car for her and drive it round to her and even genuinely offer her a lift home which is over an hour away. I don't think we will ever not be excited driving down the lovely lane to Marks hall, the staff and venue are very special to us and they truly deserve to be recognised for all he Hard work they do. Mr and Mrs Beales The Coach House was a brilliant venue for our wedding. Stunning surroundings and staff that did whatever was needed to help - we loved every part of our day there. Mr and Mrs Rout Amazingly beautiful venue and great staff helped make our wedding day the day of our dreams. from booking the venue right through to the day itself the staff were always on hand for any questions, help or support we needed. I would recommend full heartily.:) Thank you Mr and Mrs Kirby-Greenall We had the best day ever at the Coach House for our wedding in October. Lisa and the team insisted that we’d be able to have our wedding outside in the garden and they were right! The whole team were great for helping us with all the preparations. It’s the perfect venue if you want to be creative and they allowed us to do everything we wanted. I just wanted to say a special thanks to Chloe, who was our wedding day coordinator. I believe it was her first wedding in charge and she did an absolutely fantastic job! Thank you all so much, I wish we could do it all over again! Xxx Mr and Mrs Pugh Our son Simon got married to beautiful Katy at the weekend, all of the staff were so helpful and looked after us, and we just could not fault any of the day at all, what a fantastic place to get married, the whole package in one place, so attentive and no extortionate prices. All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. If you are thinking of a wedding in the future think of Marks Hall, Beautiful grounds for photos including the lake. Mr and Mrs Lazell We got married at the Coach House, Marks Hall on the 1st July and it was the happiest day of our life. The setting is absolutely stunning and the facilities are spot on, but alongside this, what made the Coach House such a wonderful venue were the amazing staff. The Wedding team at the Coach House made sure absolutely everything ran smoothly from the moment of booking two years ago to the big day itself. We met many of the lovely coordinators who we really couldn't have planned a Wedding without, a special thanks to lovely Jenae who was our coordinator on the day and made everything run smoothly, to Clare and Lisa who were always at the end of an email helping us out with everything from small touches to the really important things, and to Sam the bar manager at the Coach house who let us request our favourite drinks and was a laugh on the day. My husband and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend getting married at beautiful Marks Hall, a truly beautiful setting which I have been visiting since childhood. Mr and Mrs Boyles Lisa, Clare and Janay. Seeing your firstborn Son married to the love of his life, is exciting enough but to celebrate it in such perfect surroundings as Marks Hall, was simply superb. We felt that the relaxed, no worries but quietly efficient delivery of the day, was in perfect keeping with the personalities of Alex & Abigail. Nothing was too much trouble for you all – an example being, you met all the guests with umbrellas on arrival during a rain shower. My stand-out personal favourite, was the purchase of a brand new wheel barrow and then decorated with garden twine, to create a statement ice bath for the beers. No fuss, no bother – you nailed the delivery and exceeded everyone’s expectations – brilliant – deepest thanks. Additionally your facilities are spacious, well kept & flexible. We can all testify to the water-proof qualities of the ‘Chinese Hats’ and I am sure I was not alone in the noticing the discreet closure of the end panels just before the torrential downpour – top skills. Mr and Mrs Laurie Our day was so so perfect!!!! The venue is outstanding and most of our wedding guests had never been there before so were totally wowed when walking behind then gazebo and seeing the gorgeous lake and land. It was helped by the absolutely stunning weather too!! Lisa was incredible leading up to the day and was patient with my hundreds of emails!!! Jemma made me feel so at ease on the day and loads of my guests mentioned how lovely and accommodating she was!! She regularly made me sit down and take a moment which helped me take everything in. Genuinely can’t thank you all enough! Best venue ever! Mr and Mrs Nicholls An amazing Venue. We came here for a couple of walks and then attended the wedding fair which was only the second one we attended and fell in love with the beautiful, natural outside and private area, we got married outside on a very warm summers day and the staff where amazing thank you so much. Mr and Mrs Yardley This is the most adorable venue, we fell in love with it as soon as we clapped eyes on it. So beautiful yet so relaxed, a true romantic wonderland. The staff are amazing, Clare is fantastic and Louise is so sweet and couldn’t do enough to help us. This really means so much in making it perfect for us and making so many happy memories. It’s so amazing that we can return when we like to visit the grounds at Marks Hall and reminisce. Mr and Mrs Wood What can I say? I fell in love with venue from the moment I saw it. It is truly beautiful and is only made better by the coordinator Lisa. She was amazing and went above and beyond to make our day absolutely perfect! Start to finish she made sure that everything went smoothly and even drove one of our ill guests home! She is a credit to Marks Hall Estate and I can’t recommend this beautiful venue enough! Thank you Marks Hall & Lisa for making our special day!
