the venue

Captains Wood Barn is an exclusive unlicensed wedding venue set in 50 acres of beautiful Essex woodland.


Exclusively yours for the weekend, this rustic venue offers you the chance to make your day exactly how you want it. We allow you to dress the venue, and bring in your own suppliers to make it truly unique.  

We only have a handful of weddings a year at the barn, so if you thing we might be the right place for you to have your big day, please get in touch. 


The venue is a family run working farm, and is the perfect venue to hold your wedding blessing and reception.



MAY 2019

WOW! Honestly....I can’t describe just how perfect our day was from start to finish. 


The couple that rode the horse carriage were FABULOUS. They were so patient with my kids, allowing them to say hello to all the horses and honestly from the minute we got on that carriage to make our way into the woods I was on cloud 9.


The venue just delivered on EVERY. SINGLE. LEVEL!


The ceremony was genuinely one of the happiest moments of my life - it was just as we imagined it. Super relaxed, fun, inclusive, and it looked incredible!


Lapping the guests on that pony ride and walking up the aisle are moments I will cherish forever. The guests looked awesome, the woods looked insane. 


The confetti tunnel, we felt like royalty!


God and then the drinks with the fab White Mule Company gang, in the beautiful grounds in the glorious sunshine. And the tractor rides AAHHH oh my god. Everyone just loved it!


Bob is a complete legend. He honestly was so lovely and so complimentary about our day.

I’m not sure if you’ve heard about our entrance in to the barn? My friends called it the ‘Beyonce’ entrance, it was awesome - the shutters went up, everyone was going nuts and the shimmery disco curtains were flying in the wind. It was just magical.


Seeing the barn so sparkly and bright and full of our most special people - i can’t tell you the LOVE we felt. It was mind blowing.


I think you can probably tell that we had the BEST DAY EVER!


We want to do it all over again, genuinely we do. It was just incredible.


I’m so so so SO happy we found Captains Wood Barn and chose to celebrate our marriage there as it just suited us to a tee. It was such a joyous day, our family of 5 Sharpes can’t thank you enough!
