Intimate Wedding Venue

Our Intimate Wedding Venue

A small wedding is an opportunity to cherish the love between you and your partner without having to prepare for the huge spectacle of a more extravagant ceremony. If the grandeur of a big wedding sounds off-putting, we encourage you to opt for our small wedding packages here at Newland Hall.

Your wedding day should be a time for you and your loved ones to rejoice, and it can be difficult to feel connected to a room full of people on such an important day. There’s so much to do during a wedding that it can feel like you don’t have enough time to speak to every guest, but a small wedding solves that issue.

As one of the leading wedding venues in Essex, at Newland Hall, you can be assured of a cosy, intimate setting perfect for a memorable day.

Enjoy The Magic of a Small Wedding Ceremony

Intimate wedding celebrations have become increasingly popular over the last few years, with small wedding packages focusing on the happy couple’s closest friends and family. They typically involve no more than 50 guests being invited to the wedding and wedding reception.

The charm of intimate weddings is in their informality, which is quite different to larger, traditional celebrations. With a more manageable guest list and a reduced need for extensive seating arrangements, this style of wedding is both convenient and budget-friendly. The simplicity of these smaller events allows for a more relaxed atmosphere, and at Newland Hall, we can make the celebration easier to coordinate and more financially accessible for you.

Celebrating at Newland Hall

Our small weddings usually start at 11 am and finish around 6 pm. This more flexible timeline has proven to be a favourite among our couples, giving them more time to gather their wedding party before the ceremony and ensuring that they can spend the remainder of their day together as the sun sets.

You can enjoy the unhurried pace of your special day at our intimate wedding venue in Essex. There’s no rush to start the ceremony straight away, and many of our past couples have been grateful that they could take a moment to breathe before walking down the aisle.

Once your ceremony is complete, you and your guests will be able to dine on a lighter wedding lunch in our elegant Henry VIII room. Or, if you’d prefer to be outdoors for the majority of your wedding, we can also offer our marquee for a beautiful dining experience catered to by our in-house team.

Intimate Wedding FAQs

Is a small wedding venue in Essex more affordable?

In general, intimate venues for small weddings tend to be more affordable. At Newland Hall, we can work with you to ensure that your special day is within your budget. It’s possible to have venue-only hire with us and supply your own caterers, which some of our couples have previously chosen to do.

Can a small wedding still be as special and memorable as a larger celebration?

Yes, in fact, many couples find that a small celebration can enhance the intimacy of their special day. With fewer guests, there’s often more time to spend with each person, creating lasting memories. Couples can also focus on unique details and experiences in venues for small weddings that might be missed when planning a larger celebration.

What catering do you offer for intimate weddings?

Our catering team is happy to work with you to create a menu for your special day. Our intimate wedding packages usually include drinks and canapés for guests to start with after the ceremony, and a lunch menu to accompany your wedding reception party.
