Maidens Barn wedding venue in High Easter, near Chelmsford, Essex dates back to 1806. Owners Katherine and Clive Matthews have completed an amazing conversion project to transform the old barns into one of the most popular wedding venue in Essex. Maidens Barn is Grade-II listed and oozes character and charm with ancient beams and exposed wood. With the choice of where you can have your ceremony – including inside oak barn, or outside under the flowering arbour – couples can make their wedding at this venue truly unique. The in house chef and DJ mean two of the importance decisions of your day are already sorted. The collection of barns offer all the space you need for a wedding, with the vaulted elm barn set up for the wedding breakfast and evening party. The lovely bridal Hideaway Cottage is secluded in a neighbouring field and ideal for the bride and groom to slip off to. Maidens Barn now has 13 guest rooms in another converted barn so your family and friends can stay the night too. For a rustic, countryside wedding Maidens Barn is the perfect choice. I particularly love the setting, surrounded by fields with amazing views, perfect for wedding pictures. The beautiful flower displays inside and outside the barns are the icing on the wedding cake!
Natalie and Nick chose Maidens Barns for their wedding, surrounded by their friends and family. I loved Natalie’s arrival on a vintage bus with her bridesmaids. They all had great fun. Maidens Barn was decorated with lots of fairy lights which made the evening party so romantic and helped me create intimate pictures.
Essex is home to lots of top wedding venues, which I have had the pleasure of working at. Click here to see more examples of Gregg Brown’s work in his selection of wedding photography galleries.
