Explore your dream day at Hylands’ February Wedding Showcase

Wedding Showcae

If you’re newly engaged (congratulations!) and considering a wedding at Hylands Estate, why not attend their upcoming Wedding Showcase Day?  

The outstanding Essex wedding venue, which is within easy reach of London, is preparing for the first of several showcase events in 2023. The first one will be taking place on Sunday 5 February from 11am. 

The popular event offers couples the opportunity to truly visualise their dream wedding at Hylands. The House will be fully dressed for a wedding, with all the important elements of the perfect day demonstrated by many of the Estate’s specially selected suppliers. 

A relaxed and luxurious day 

The Hylands team know that planning a wedding can be overwhelming. That’s why the Estate’s Showcase Days focus on providing a relaxed and enjoyable day.  

On arriving, make sure you grab one of the branded goody bags filled with luxury merchandise, including organic soaps and mini lip balms. Enjoy a complimentary drink from Beyond Bar Hire and savour some delicious canapes from Mel’s Meals. Take some time to unwind in the opulent surroundings while harpist Glenda Allaway plays soothing melodies.

The showcase provides an opportunity to fully explore what Hylands has to offer for your wedding. You can take your time to explore the ceremony rooms at your own leisure or book a show round with a member of Hylands’ highly experienced, award-winning wedding team.  

Up in the Wedding Suite, you’ll find some of the Estate’s finest suppliers for all things bridal. In the Grand Pavilion, you and your partner can check out the elegant dance floor and test-run the 360 photo booth. Don’t forget to speak to décor and special effects experts Design4Else and Platinum Ace about designing your dream wedding reception.

“We’re really excited to kick-off 2023 with more of our popular wedding showcases. These events offer prospective couples the chance to see the splendour of a wedding at Hylands, meet some of our incredible suppliers, and speak to experienced wedding executives about their wedding plans and ideas.”
