Dry Hire Wedding Venues in Essex

As one of the most popular dry hire wedding venues in Essex (Chelmsford) and one of the most stunning wedding venues in Essex, we understand that many couples may want to use their own caterers, and we’re more than happy to accommodate this!

As a dry hire wedding venue, our package is counter to the fully inclusive wedding style and affords those who prefer to choose each aspect of their wedding with a broader range of options. However, if at any point you wish to use our catering services then, granted there is enough time to prepare, all you need to do is talk to a member of our team and we are more than likely to assist with this request!

Benefits of Dry Hire Wedding Venues in Essex

Dry hire wedding venues are those that provide only the use of their space, such as a hall or room, without any of the added extras like catering, décor, and production. In comparison, wet hire includes this all.

One of the main benefits of dry hire venues is the ability to have more creative freedom over your wedding. Perhaps you are a vegan couple and would like to enlist a bespoke specialist vegan caterer rather than have the venue’s catering team attempt a vegan set menu. If you are a creative and well organised couple looking to create a wedding with your personalities in mind, dry hire wedding venues provide you with a blank canvas to work your magic. It gives you more flexibility about the providers and businesses you’d like to use in conjunction with your event.
