THANK YOU HIGH HOUSE. We couldn’t have had a more perfect wedding day & experience throughout our whole wedding planning. It started when we viewed the venue and fell absolutely in love, we knew it was the perfect fit for us. Everyone you deal with at High House is amazing, from booking our wedding right up to on the day, the team were fabulous, friendly & professional. We felt like the team on our wedding day were part of our guests as we all enjoyed chatting away with them so much! A special thank you to our wedding coordinator Abbie, you made us feel so well looked after, our day couldn’t have run more smoothly- you are amazing! The venue itself is beautiful, the grounds are so well kept, the interiors are flawless and there is attention to detail in every corner you look. All of our guests (& there were a lot of them!) said how blown away they were with the venue and that it was one if not the best venues they had attended a wedding at. The food all catered by Valentine Cusine was absolutely amazing it was so tasty & fresh. A special mention for the evening wood-fired pizzas, they were the best pizzas we’ve ever had! We are just so happy we chose High House and we can’t sing their praises enough.

Where do I start...High house from the moment we walked in, we just knew it was the Venue for us. Abbie & the high house staff are just real supermen and women to the wedding industry, a true credit they really are. Our day was so perfect from start to finish and that is all down to the staff at High House. The grounds are so beautifully kept by the wonderful High House Gardening Team and all our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. It was truly a real-life fairytale, the day I have always dreamed of since a little girl. So thank you Highhouse for making our dreams come true.

We can not thank High House House enough for our beautiful wedding. The whole team were incredible, and our guests couldn’t have been more complimentary. The venue is gorgeous, and the day ran so smoothly. Valentine cuisine were brilliant and catered for everyone, and John from Pure Image went above and beyond. I would recommend anybody looking to get married to book High House. Thank you all again ❤️

We tied the knot at High House on Friday, September 15th, and I can't say enough about what an absolutely magical day it was! Ella, our wedding coordinator, deserves a standing ovation. She was not only fantastic but incredibly detailed and responsive throughout the entire planning process. With her at the helm, everything unfolded seamlessly. On the big day, the rest of the staff were equally exceptional. They were not only attentive but also incredibly friendly. The bar staff even had a surprise up their sleeves – they could whip up any cocktail our guests desired, which everyone absolutely loved! Now, let's talk about the venue itself. It's nothing short of breathtaking. From the picturesque bridge to the beautiful barn, stunning gardens, and that dreamy vineyard – it's a photographer's paradise. And let's not forget the black and white dancefloor; it's the perfect spot to dance the night away. When it comes to weddings, food is a make-or-break factor, and Valentine Cuisine did not disappoint. Our guests were not only well-fed but they couldn't stop raving about the top-notch quality of the food and service. High House, along with all the other vendors recommended by the venue, helped us create the best day of our lives. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend it to anyone in search of the perfect wedding venue. From the venue itself to its exceptional staff, it truly deserves a 5-star rating. Our wedding day was everything we had ever dreamed of, and more!

Me and my Wife got married at High House last week and the whole experience from start to finish was amazing. Any questions I had were answered everything was explained very thoroughly and not once during the whole experience did I feel stressed. The whole team were amazing! Especially our planner Abbie who carefully laid out all the timings and details and made the whole planning process a breeze. The venue itself is stunning! The grounds are immaculate, Emily was especially impressed by how the groundskeepers were cutting the lawn before our wedding started to ensure everything was perfect! We had the most amazing day it was everything we had dreamed of. The food was incredible with many saying the cheesecake was the best they’d ever had! The DJ was amazing his mixing was flawless and definitely got the crowd going. I wish we could do it all over again. Many of my guests commented that it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to so I think that says it all. If you want the most beautiful venue in Essex with the best team, definitely book High House!! Thank you so so much again for making our day so magical
