Given quite how secluded Osea Island is, it’s difficult to believe that it’s in fact just an hour’s journey from the heart of London. With the stunning backdrop of water in every direction you look, it really is rare to find a wedding venue which is both as accessible, and as serene as here.Based on the Blackwater Estuary, the 386-acre island can be accessed in a number of different ways, whether that’s by train to the nearby Witham station, water taxi, or during low tide you can brave the twisting pebble pathway. This means that your wedding guests can either travel over just for the wedding, or can stay in accommodation on the island.With the option to exclusively hire the entire island, or to just hire one of the many different spaces available, there are countless options if you decide to have your wedding on Osea Island. What they all ensure though is that your big day will be memorable for all the right reasons. If you’re looking for a quirky wedding venue, the island’s Bomb Factory has a wonderfully industrial feel to it and is licensed for ceremonies as well as providing a fantastic space for receptions as well. With on-site catering available, the Bomb Factory is the ideal spot for a large wedding breakfast too. Meanwhile, the smaller Power House is more of a blank canvas with its white walls, and high vaulted ceiling. Whether you want a smaller-scale sit down meal, or a standing buffet and dance floor, the Power House can be transformed into the wedding venue of your dreams. It also benefits from a small private outdoor area which can be used for drinks receptions during the summer.
Regardless of which space on the island you decide to go with, one thing that they all benefit from is the surrounding acres of land which can be explored if you or your guests fancy staying on after the wedding.
