Gosfield Hall was built in 1545 by Sir John Wentworth, who was a member of the household of Cardinal Wolsey.
Gosfield is a Grade 1 listed building that was visited by Queen Elizabeth I. The exterior looks newer as it was remodelled in the 18th century, as was the Grand Salon, but the central courtyard still retains the old Tudor style. Later Gosfield Hall was the home of King Louis XVIII of France after the French revolution.
Nowadays of course it’s one of Essex’s finest venues for civil ceremonies and wedding receptions.
Gosfield Hall is licensed for civil ceremonies, which usually take place either in the Grand Salon or in the Queen’s Gallery upstairs, or occasionally outside in the courtyard. Wedding breakfasts are typically served in the Grand Ballroom which seats up to 116 guests.
The elegant interior of Gosfield Hall makes a great backdrop for your wedding photos if the weather is not cooperative; however if it’s a nice day then we can use the extensive grounds as well as the Tudor courtyard.
There are 21 bedrooms at Gosfield Hall which is convenient if you and some of your guests want to stay overnight before or after the wedding. The Bridal Suite has windows overlooking the terrace which I use as a vantage point to take a big group photo of you with all your guests!
