The Space

Chalkney Water Meadows is hidden away amongst ancient woodland next to a picturesque river and a tree-lined lake. It’s a stunning location for an outdoor wedding in Essex, and you can enjoy exclusive use of the venue for the whole weekend.

This venue is popular with larger wedding parties who require a little more space, with three linked giant tipis that seat up to 200 guests. Ceremonies take place on the lakeside willow pontoon, and glamping accommodation is available in luxurious “Nomadic” bell tents.The venue also has two lakeside cabins conveniently situated a short walk away.

Glamping accommodation onsite in “Nomadic” bell tents.

Each tent comes furnished with a double bed, full bedding and bath towels, blankets, cushions, matting and colourful rugs, a basic power supply for lighting and phone charging and low lying bedside tables. Additional single mattresses are added for 3-5 guests. Additional bell tents are available to hire. These are furnished without bed frames and electricity but with mattresses, full bedding and blankets, cushions and colourful rugs and lighting
