Forrester Park

Forrester Park is an independent venue which has been hosting wedding celebrations for over 40 years. A traditional style building set in beautiful countryside, it offers a stunning venue at a realistic price.

Forrester Park is renowned for its friendliness and flexibility, and Wedding Co-ordinator Katie Plumb will be happy to discuss your plans to make sure everything is just as you want it.

The Forresters Suite can seat up to 120 people and is available for exclusive hire during the daytime or evening; the Clubhouse, with its vaulted ceiling and cosy beamed bar area, is ideal for arrival drinks and/or an evening party and is available exclusively after 7.30pm. French doors open onto the gardens and there is also a marquee area. Forrester Park can hold up to 200 people for a reception, but smaller groups are very welcome (there is no minimum number) and bridal parties can use any combination of the house and grounds. Some guests also make use of the 18-hole golf course!

Forrester Park is within ten minutes’ drive of Maldon, Tiptree and Witham and ten minutes from the A12 between Colchester and Chelmsford. There is ample free parking. Top quality accommodation is available nearby if required.

Forrester Park’s new Millennium Lawn outdoor ceremony area is set in its own ‘secret garden’. The Lawn offers beautiful views over the golf course and surrounding countryside while providing a secluded space for you to celebrate your marriage vows.

The rural setting makes a beautiful backdrop for photographs, and you are free to treat the area as a ‘blank canvas’ to decorate to your own taste. The Millennium Lawn can seat up to 150 for the ceremony and you may also wish to make use of our terrace and garden for a celebration drinks reception after the ceremony.
