Set in beautiful countryside, Forrester Park is an independent venue which has been hosting wedding celebrations for over 50 years. A traditional style building, parts of which date back to the 16th century, the venue is licensed for both indoor and outdoor civil ceremonies. The experienced events team will be on hand to help you organise your day just the way you want it, whether you choose one of their inclusive packages or create your own bespoke format. It can cater for any number from 2 to 200 so whether you’re after a flamboyant formal affair or a low-key, intimate event there are options to suit all.
For the ceremony, you can choose from the Millennium lawn, Forresters Suite, Willow Room or Oak Room to tie the knot wherever you feel most comfortable.
After the ceremony, hold your celebratory drinks and canapés on the terrace or in one of the clubrooms and make use of the scenic garden and grounds as a picturesque backdrop for your photographs. For the all-important Wedding Breakfast, the Forresters Suite provides a space to which you can add your personal touches to make it truly your own.
All the food is prepared on the premises by a team of highly-experienced chefs with a passion for making people happy! The sample menus offer a wide selection of dishes to suit every taste and budget but the chefs will welcome your own ideas too if there’s something specific you have in mind.
Evening celebrations can be continued in the suite or in the clubrooms, both of which are equipped with their own dance floor, bar and even cloakrooms. The terrace and gardens will also be and your disposable for the duration of the evening for guests to get a breath of fresh air and take in the beautiful surroundings.
Just 14 miles from both Chelmsford and Colchester via the A12, Forrester Park is a convenient location for your guests to get to, with ample free parking. The venue’s sister establishment in Maldon also offers top quality accommodation for the bridal party and guests if required.
