Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Cardfields, Hatfield Peverel, Essex, sleeps 10 - 55 in 11 bedrooms.

Cardfields can offer you the perfect unique secluded beautiful location venue in Essex at which to hold your bespoke do-it-yourself wedding and create your magic moments.
Cardfields aim is to offer the best wedding service in Essex without breaking your budget. Having five acres of grounds gives you the space and opportunity to create your own personal theme for your special day. Cardfields staff will always be available to offer support to the wedding party guests.
We have a team of experts who are passionately committed to make everything right for you on your important day. The five acres of grounds can give you the opportunity to erect a marquee (additional cost) and make full use of the grounds. Self-catering allows you to use outside caterers or self-cater or both, so you can personalise your wedding and keep control of your budget.
We can provide you with the details of plenty of wedding suppliers (see our website for information) including caterers, marquee hire, DJs, bands, sax player, hog roast, florists, vintage ice cream van and other service providers who have done an excellent job with previous weddings/celebrations held here, at reasonable prices.
By way of example: in August 2017 there was a festival themed wedding in the beautiful grounds. The marquee looked fantastic on the lawn with plenty of space for 200 guests and bands to relax and enjoy.
Another couple opted for a picnic within the beautiful gardens following a festival theme in the sunshine. A crèche was set up using our conference facilities to give families time to relax and enjoy the wedding picnic whilst the children had fun with lots of activities and were looked after by caring experienced crèche workers.
We are currently in the process of applying for a civil wedding licence. Check out our website for updated information. Please contact us if you would like to discuss your plans.
