Our Wedding Venue Open Day Is A Date For Your Diary!

wedding venue open day

As the summer season sets in, so too does that wonderful wedding buzz. Here at Marygreen Manor, we simply adore the glow of an excited bride, the jovial behavior between a groom and his groomsmen. We love watching couples say “I do”, dedicating their lives to one another and celebrating all that it entails with their nearest and dearest. While the wedding day is indeed an important day, and one to be remembered no less, there’s one day that the staff of Marygreen Manor love even more than a wedding and that’s our wedding open days. The air of excitement that takes over our manor house from not just one, but a multitude of excited couples is quite simply heart warming. There’s nothing so beautiful as a newly engaged couple envisioning their day together. With this in mind, we’d like to ask you to put a date in your diary for our next wedding venue open day!

On Saturday 30th September, we’ll be opening our doors for all newly engaged (and not so newly engaged) couples up and down the country. You’ll get to see our full facilities in all their glory, set for the wedding of your dreams from 10am until 4pm. We’ll be offering canapés, Champagne and unbridled viewing of everywhere from our bridal suites to our ceremony halls. You’ll also be privy to some fabulous special offers and discounts on the day.

Why attend our wedding venue open day?

A question we often get asked however, “should I go to a wedding open day?” So we thought we’d address this commonly asked question here by explaining exactly why you should! Here goes;

It’s super fun – while it might sound like a bit of a drag for those who may not be as detail oriented as the next person, wedding open days are great fun. Not only will you get to see the place you’ll (hopefully) be saying “I do” but you’ll also get to enjoy free champagne and canapés. What more could you want?

Take the stress out of your big day – attending our wedding venue open day won’t just give you a glimpse of your wedding venue. It will also give you a glimpse as to how we can help you when it comes to catering, drinks and décor. We’ll help to take the stress out of your day by organising a huge chunk. We may even be able to offer the names of some fabulous suppliers we’ve worked with before in the past.

Feel inspired – not sure how you want your big day to look? Then allow us to show you some of the best ways to decorate our manor house. Take a little inspiration from the experts here at Marygreen Manor and add your own personal twist.

Save money – as we mentioned above, attending our wedding venue open day will mean you’re privy to a few discounts and deals. This will save you more money than you realised; money that could be better spent elsewhere, such as a honeymoon for example?

Ask all the questions you need to – we know only too well in this day and age that finding out information can be tough. The majority of the time, it’s a case of sending emails back and forth until you have all the information you need which, when coupled with jobs and family commitments, can take a while. By attending our open day however, you’ll get to ask all the questions you can think of and receive an answer there and then. No time consuming emails, no back and forth with staff members. Just simple, easy advice and help.

Stay At Marygreen Manor During The Brentwood Festival

Brentwood festival accomodation

            Brentwood Festival Accommodation 

Festivals are the epitome of summer fun, especially here in the UK. From V Festival to Lovebox, there’s something for everyone happening up and down the country. In fact, people travel the length and breadth of the UK in order to make their most favourite festivals and the annual Brentwood Festival is certainly no exception to the rule.

This year, the Brentwood festival will be spanning the course of three days from Friday 14th July to Sunday 16th July. With the likes of Jocelyn Brown, Status Quo, Go West, The Real Thing and Heaven 17 being in the line-up, it’s no wonder that #BwdFest17 (that’s what the cool kids are calling it) is looking to be the most popular one yet. Based in the Brentwood Centre, the festival will not only offer musical talents to entertain the masses but a whole host of excitement including a food village, market stalls and even a fairground for the smaller ones (and the big kids too), which means no matter what you fancy doing on the day, they’ll be something to take your fancy. With that in mind, crowds are expected to be within the thousands and while camping is available, many choose not to, especially after a long day in the sun. For those looking for something a little more glam, or even just free from mud and fields with a hint of ‘fresh running water’, local hotels are often the answer.

Being quite literally a hop, skip and jump from the Marygreen Manor makes us one of the go to hotels for those in need of accommodation and being just a month and half away means it’s time to start booking. Jump online today and check out our variety of rooms where you can enjoy a hot bath, a fresh bed and full English before a day’s partying in the sunshine filled fields of the Brentwood Centre. Better yet, call 01277 225252 today.

Father’s Day Here at Marygreen Manor Hotel and Restaurant

This year, Father’s Day falls on Sunday 18th June. We’ve been celebrating this special day for years, especially here at Marygreen Manor Hotel and Restaurant and rightly so, but just where did it originate? Well, despite our love for our fathers, you might be surprised to learn that actually, Father’s Day originated in the United States having been celebrated there since 1966. While many argue over its exact origin, we know the celebration of fatherhood itself began roughly 100 years ago

A huge amount of people believes a Sonora Dodd from Washington, actually came up with the idea after listening to a sermon based on Mother’s Day. Dodd and her siblings were exceptionally close to their father after he’d raised them single-handedly when their mother had died in childbirth. Dodd, subsequently began the campaign and the first unofficial Father’s Day was held in 1910 with towns and cities across America soon following suit. Others claim a Grace Golden Clayton should be credited with the birth of the holiday after she suggested celebrating our male parent way back in 1908. This was following a mine explosion in a near-by town which killed more than 360 men and as such, Grace thought the now fatherless children deserved a day to remember their now lost fathers.

Regardless of its origin, Father’s Day is very much here and while we do agree Father’s should be celebrated every single day, here at Marygreen Manor, we simply can’t pass up an opportunity to celebrate just that little extra. That’s why we have created a very special Father’s Day Lunch with an extra special menu. With delights such as prawn and saffron risotto, duck liver pate and a roast rib eye of beef – it’s guaranteed to put a smile on his face. Call 01277 225252 to book a table today.

Rainy Day Easter Activities

Rainy Day Easter Activities

Rainy Day Easter Activities

It’s never fun being the bearer of bad news but here at Marygreen Manor, we’re never ones to let a little rain get in the way of some family fun. With rain forecast for Easter Sunday, we feel it’s our duty to give you a few ideas of just what you can get up when staying here in our Essex hotel. From indoor Easter egg hunts to a little wine list indulgence, there’s plenty for you to enjoy so sit back, relax and let us inspire you.

Afternoon Tea – whether you’re travelling with younger ones or in a group of adults only, there’s nothing quite like an afternoon tea to turn your rainy day around and here at Marygreen Manor, we’re known throughout Essex for the best Afternoon Tea in Essex. Enjoy cakes, sandwiches and a glass of bubbly (or two) and watch the rain fall from the warmth of our conservatory room.

Indoor Easter Egg Hunt – ok ok, so we know this one’s a little harder when you’re staying in a hotel but our rooms are certainly large enough to create a few hiding spaces so while the rest of your family are enjoying breakfast in our Tudors Restaurant, we suggest you start looking for the best hiding places (under the bed, behind the curtains) and create a few clues to boot. Better yet, turn it into a general knowledge game and quiz the kids to receive a clue. We guarantee some smiles, giggles and a morning of chocolatey fun.

Wine List Indulgence – as well as having a fabulous restaurant, we also boast an award-winning wine list so if you’re away without the children, we suggest you take it as an opportunity to start familiarising yourself with the difference between a pinot noir and a sauvignon blanc.

Whatever you choose to do, here at Marygreen Manor, the best hotel in Essex, we insist you don’t let the weather spoil your time this Easter weekend.
