Intimate Wedding Venue with picturesque setting in Essex

Love is in the air at The White Hart, Wimbish. If you are thinking of getting married in the next few years,
why not consider one of East Anglia's most unique and picturesque venues?


The White Hart Restaurant and Bar in Howlett End, Wimbish has rapidly established an enviable reputation as one of the region’s top venues for fine dining and high quality service - to which it now adds the accolade of the wedding venue of choice, for those wanting a truly memorable day.


Set in beautiful, rolling countryside between Saffron Walden and Thaxted, The White Hart offers the perfect setting for your special day with an excellent choice of menus, catering for up to 120 guests and a variety of bespoke packages to suit all needs.

Leigh is an experienced wedding planner too so can help you with every aspect of your day. 

Licensee, Leigh Cross, explains: ‘So many wedding venues seem to lack the personal touch - making the whole experience seem like you’re just one out of hundreds of events being squeezed into a busy schedule. What we offer is completely the opposite. We discuss your requirements in detail and then tailor a bespoke package, backed-up by a personal service that seems to be missing from so many venues these days, with the promise that your wedding experience will be totally unique and arranged around you.’

Head Chef, Phil Todd, promises a culinary experience to remember: ‘We aim to make your day a very special occasion and can offer a wide variety of dishes including lobster tails, fresh scallops, chateau briand and a host of other fine dining options. Nothing is too much trouble. You are the client, and providing it’s available - we’ll prepare it for you.’

A review and some pictures from a wedding hosted by The White Hart Wimbish in December 2016

"Leigh, I don’t even know where to begin….

You and your whole team made our wedding day the most perfect day we could have ever imagined. All our friends and family were so impressed with the whole day – the food was amazing, the staff did so well making sure all the veggies/gf crowd got the right meals.

The bar staff kept up with the demands for constant prosecco, and you made it all so enjoyable for every single person.
I hope you have recovered and rested and thank you again for giving us the best day of our lives. Lots of Love Gemma & Dan xx"
