“I always knew I didn’t want to spend a fortune on a photographer and when I came across David I was skeptical because of the lower price. However we booked and went ahead. We have just received our wedding photos and I cannot believe the quality of them. David was professional and not a pushy photographer, you didn’t know he was there but still managed to get the most amazing photos. David we can’t thank you enough!”
About Little Channels Barn Weddings
No doubt this venue is one of the best-rated intimate wedding venues in Essex. There are actually two wedding venues belonging to the estate not far from each other. Little Channels was created to host smaller weddings whilst the Channels Estate is perfect for larger events. Given the smaller capacity, the staff can provide more personalized service and you will feel more looked after throughout the day.
The barn is located by a larger golf course, has good-sized car parking, and has very easy access from the main road (A130).
Getting ready stress-free is key for a great wedding. The Channels Estate is only one mile away so it's a very convenient and practical solution for the bridal and/or groom preparation in the morning. There are many suits to choose from and are all different to match your vibe.
For up to 70 seated guests at the barn, you will feel very connected with everyone and have some special and unique moments. It has really great natural light all around through the windows and a very special, rustic barn look.
Waltham Barn is the larger room where the receptions are held. There is space for up to 90 guests seated, a band to play live music, a DJ for the dance floor vibes, and more. The attention to detail is outstanding in this room. They kept the decor very simple yet beautiful.
This space is all yours to enjoy the canapes, throw the confetti, or have a sparkler exit at the end of the night. It's a fairly large space with a small bar, few comfy seats, and tables, and it's nicely separated from the car park all around with wooden faces.
While the property is surrounded by large green space it might be
a little challenging to find a nicer background for the must-have sunset photoshoot. I have chosen the barn itself as the backdrop and it worked out very well for the couple portraits as well as the group and family photos.
This space is awesome for the arriving guests before the ceremony to come together to relax in the shadow and it's also perfect to take a break after the reception just before the tables are moved away to make space for the dancefloor.
I believe they can make BBQ food there too if it's included in your booking.
The perfect ending to a long day is dancing with your friends to some great music. Don't forget to arrange a DJ or an awesome band to play your favorite songs.
