Should I get wedding venue insurance?
If you’re pouring a considerable amount of time and money into planning your wedding, then it might be worth considering taking our insurance.
Many couples say “oh but we’d never split up”, but wedding insurance isn’t about a change of heart, it’s about making sure you’re not left out of pocket if something goes wrong. It covers you if a supplier lets you down, if a venue cancels, or if a key member of your wedding party is taken ill. It’s worth thinking about, plus it gives you peace of mind in the lead up to your big day.
What Clients Say About Our Weddings in Essex

Product Description: Wedding Venue
What can I say! Thank you so very much for making me one of the happiest girls ever! To say Mike and I had a great day yesterday would be the biggest understatement; we have had so many lovely comments from our guests on what a wonderful wedding we had and that’s all down to you. The food was perfect, the bar and waiting staff were nothing but polite and extremely efficient and Tracey as our front our house was flawless. I’ve had so many calls and emails back fourth with Kara and the wedding team over the last year or so. Each time, nothing has ever been too much trouble, emails are responded to so quickly and how Kara remembers so many faces, dates and names is beyond me! There are so many beautiful wedding venues out there, but those venues are only ever as good as the people behind it. You not only have a beautiful venue but you also have so many brilliant staff who make that venue shine. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

We did the booking and planning through Fiona who was lovely and on the day we had Deborah who was just incredible - nothing was too much trouble and she really put us both at ease.

Thanks so much to everyone for really making this the best day of our lives.”
