with a dance floor beneath the stars beside a lake chalkney water meadows is the most unique essex venue out there! don’t believe me? read on my friend
At last a unique Essex Wedding Venue! Chalkney Water Meadows offers a truly quirky alternative to the traditional venue in the sense that couples can pitch up on the Friday and and have exclusive use of this venue for a period of 48 hours to maximise the celebration of their marriage.
At Chalkney Water Meadows there are three giant hat tipis on offer with a maximum seated capacity of 200 (at a squeeze). You can enjoy your own ‘specially designed’ dance tipi with a very unique sound system which blasts hundreds of small speakers down from the ceiling onto the dance floor, from underneath you could be on the dance floor of a nightclub whilst 5 metres away you could be having a civilised conversation with the in laws AND it over looks the lake.
The pontoon on the lake is created out of live willow shoots and is also quite spectacle and very popular for outdoor blessings whilst the congregation can sit on hay bales and view from the meadow whilst a congregation of swans watch from behind. Some couples prefer being in the trees though and at the orchard venue you’ll find a quirky little venue where you can party in the woods, spend two nights in our converted grain silo and make use of the showers and loos which are converted garden sheds. This truly is a unique Essex Wedding Venue like no other my pretties!
If you’re the type that want to party a little longer then Browning Bros. can provide silent disco equipment to be used from midnight onwards. Guests have a selection of a log cabin, luxurious bell tents, a converted grain silo or a shepherds hut to rest their heads.

“We held our wedding reception at Chalkney Lakes at the end of August, we had an amazing time and it could not have gone more smoothly. The site is beautiful and it was fantastic to have complete flexibility about how it looked and where everything was positioned etc. Archie and Nat were both so relaxed and helpful and their approach ensured that the wedding had a really chilled out atmosphere. We would highly recommend to anyone who is looking to have a bit of a different wedding with no rules!” Caroline
