Full Description
Located in the lovely village of White Roding on the Hertfordshire / West Essex border, Chelmsford is 11 miles away to the East and Harlow is 9 miles to the West. Bishop Stortford is located 7 miles north. Colville Hall is a working organic farm which produces organic wheat for the family’s mill in Chelmsford (Marriages). The arboretum which stretches across the whole farm underlines how well the gardens and farm link to not only the beautiful old buildings but the surrounding farm. The ambiance and tranquillity of Colville Hall will take your breath away. The beauty of our formal gardens which extend to 10 acres include ponds, gazebos, ancient monuments, and a listed Grade 1 arch way, for the most romantic picture opportunities that you will treasure for the rest of your life. Colville Hall is fully licenced to hold civil weddings in our Orchard Barn and our two gazebos making an ideal outside wedding setting. While our Mill Pond Barn with its 30 foot glass doors overlooking our duck pond make for a surreal and never to be forgotten backdrop to your wedding breakfast. Our 14 acre ancient wood known locally as the ‘blue bell wood’ is stunning in May and June and is located through a gorgeous avenue of lime trees. Colville Hall has many specimen trees that are hundreds of years old, some of which can be seen to their best effect near the two fish ponds that were originally used to feed the house. Bask in the great English summer with a fantastic opportunity to have your wedding ceremony held outside in the stunning grounds Colville Hall has to offer. The thatched duck pond gazebo offers stunning photo opportunities and is ideal for a balmy summer’s day enjoying the quintessential English countryside. With rolling countryside, tranquil formal gardens, elegant duck pond with water lilies and beautiful flowers - you and your guests will be stunned by the beautiful surroundings.

Amazing venue and amazing wedding planner
We want to say a huge THANK YOU to Claire (the wedding planner) for all of her help at the wedding! She was amazing! She made everything so easy and stress-free. Going into the wedding we felt the pressure to make it the best day possible and we weren't sure how relaxed we would be, considering there's so much to do and organise. However, I felt like I could sit back and enjoy the day without a care in the world! That's all down to Claire and all the fantastic effort she put into seamlessly keeping everything ticking over and moving. My partner and I had the best day ever! The venue is beautiful and couldn't have asked for a better location! 10/10
