Maidens Barn, Essex offers an authentic wedding barn and garden venue that epitomises rural simplicity and yet also offers all the luxurious and modern features and style you would expect from a first-class venue.

Our vaulted Essex wedding barn venue dates back to 1806 and key features such as huge windows, lofty ceilings, ancient beams and subtle lighting blend together old and new perfectly. Special and surprising touches can be found all over – from the stunning glass bead chandelier to the beautiful upstairs gallery.

And nestled in the private gardens, you will find the flowering wedding arbour where your outdoor wedding ceremony can be held.

Most importantly, whilst being one of the best country barn wedding venues in Essex, we are still within easy reach of London, the M11 and Stansted Airport, with closest centres being Braintree and Chelmsford.
