Dry Hire Wedding Venue

Our dry hire wedding venue is ideal for couples who are wanting to hire a wedding venue in Chelmsford that is considered ‘dry’. This package consists of 100% exclusive venue use, though does not include catering or corkage.

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

In our dry hire wedding venue option, we are able to provide you with:

  • Exclusive use of the beautiful venue itself, Newland Hall
  • Tables, chairs, and everything else you would expect from a venue hire option

You can then choose your own caterer, whilst arranging the waiting staff independently or in conjunction with us. As one of Essex’s leading dry hire wedding venues, we remain flexible at all times and will work closely with you to ensure that your dream wedding can happen at our beautiful grounds. At Newland Hall, we are able to comfortably seat up to 150, and 200 buffet style. We also include a fantastic dance floor! With the venue hire option you are of course still guaranteed to have 100% exclusive use of Newland Hall. Furthermore, as one of the leading dry hire wedding venues in Essex, our services are available all year round and at an extremely competitive price range – please get in touch with a member of the team to discuss your wedding or a viewing should you so wish!
