THE KINGS ROOM
The Ultimate Wedding Venue In Essex ~
Wedding Breakfast 120 Seated
Evening Celebration 200 Standing
Our main wedding venue room has been imaginatively redesigned and refurbished to create a stylish and stunning venue for weddings. The Kings Room is our most popular wedding venue because of its flexibility to be combined with either our Beach Club or Oak Lounge.
This fabulous wedding venue room has a state-of-the-art lighting system. This allows us to bathe the Kings Room in a beautiful array of colours. We can complement the chosen colour theme of the bride’s party and wedding breakfast if required. This creates a truly unique experience and bespoke setting.
Our starlit tented Beach Club adjoins the Kings Room. This provides a delightfully romantic backdrop and chic ‘chill-out’ area for the wedding party and their guests.
THE OAK LOUNGE
An Intimate Wedding Venue In Essex ~
Wedding Breakfast 65 Seated
Evening Celebration 80 Standing
The Oak Lounge is not as big as our Kings Room and slightly smaller than our trendy and glamorous Beach Club. This beautiful event space is a fantastic alternative to those couples seeking something a little more intimate. Magnificent chandeliers hang within this beautiful and adaptable Victorian space. With its double height ceiling, ornate cornicing, floor to ceiling windows, it overlooks our beautiful Epping Forest. It’s all finished off with beautiful mirrors and original wall mounted lighting.
The Oak Lounge retains an air of sophistication and is a wonderful room for both civil ceremonies and wedding breakfasts. Its position within the Kings Oak allows for great flexibility when planning your special day. It adjoins the Kings Room and our Gastro Bar, giving your guests the option to use either before and after the ceremony should this be what you desire.
THE BEACH CLUB
A Trendy & Glam Wedding Venue In Essex ~
Wedding Breakfast 60 Seated
Evening Celebration 90 Standing
Where the Oak Lounge offers sophistication, The Beach Club offers you somewhere completely glamorous and trendy for your wedding! Essex wedding venues don’t get more ‘glam’ than The Beach Club at the Kings Oak Hotel. With upper & lower terraces, a beautiful starlit ceiling and views across our pool area to a backlit tree line, the Beach Club provides the perfect setting for a romantic wedding ceremony or wedding breakfast.
Immediately adjacent to our fabulous Kings Room, The Beach Club is as close to having an ‘outside’ wedding as you’ll want, knowing that our English weather can be notoriously changeable you can have the benefit of the impression of being outside without worrying about the inclement weather. It is available all year round with heating to provide comfort even in the wintriest conditions. It can be themed to match your wedding style with or without atriums and is guaranteed to make your wedding that ‘extra special’ and certainly very memorable.
THE KINGS SUITE
Inspirational & Flexible Wedding Venue ~
Wedding Breakfast 200 Seated
Evening Celebration 300 Standing
For our bigger weddings and celebrations, we have our superb Kings Suite. Designed to facilitate a wedding breakfast for 200-seated guests and another 100 to the evening celebrations, our Kings Suite is the combination of our Glam & Glitz Kings Room and our funky and chic Beach Club.
Beautiful bi-folding doors that normally separate these two event spaces can be opened to create a wonderful open area we call our Kings Suite. The flexibility of the Kings Suite allows many combinations for a wedding breakfast or a combined civil ceremony and wedding breakfast.
Marbella Inspired Luxury Wedding Venue ~
Buffet Style Wedding Breakfast 250
Evening Celebration 250
Set within our private walled garden, this Essex wedding venue features a 100ft swimming pool and contemporary poolside lounge and dining area. Here you can host your wedding guests in our pool gardens with your own personal chef serving BBQ or Hog Roast. Or, why not a summer buffet. Complete with its own ‘Tiki’ bar serving champagne and cocktails, this venue really does impress.
With the backdrop of Epping Forest, your wedding guests cannot help to be impressed by the location. On a day-to-day basis, this is a member’s only area and is designed to transport you to a world of glamour and exotic beauty. A fabulous location to relieve the stresses of daily life in an oasis of calm.
Civil Ceremony Or Blessing?
Please note that our Pool Gardens are not licensed for civil ceremonies. But it does offer a fantastic venue for guests to use after a civil ceremony in our Beach Club or Kings Room or indeed after travelling from a church wedding. Our Pool Gardens have been used for blessings which do not require a license.
