Award Winning Essex Wedding Venue – 3 years running!

Published by Harj Grewal

It feels like it was only a week ago we were raising a glass at The Rose & Crown Hotel to welcome in the New Year and now we’ve received the amazing news that we’ve won a Top Rated Wedding Venue Award we’re preparing to pop the champagne corks all over again!

Yes, for the third year running, our historic Colchester hotel has been granted the official honour of being named one of Essex’s best places to tie the knot, and we couldn’t be happier. We put a lot of hard work, time and effort into the civil ceremonies and wedding celebrations we host here at The Rose and Crown Hotel Colchester, so to receive this accolade for another consecutive year is the absolute icing on the cake.

Of course, special mention must go out to our Rose and Crown Hotel Wedding Coordinator Lisa, who has the privilege of working with all the couples who choose to say their “I dos” at our 14th century Essex wedding venue. Lisa loves her job, which is one of the reasons she’s so amazing at it, even going as far as to customise her clothing to the colour theme of the weddings she’s overseeing. In fact, together with resounding praise from our Rose and Crown Hotel couples, Lisa’s even been up for Wedding Coordinator of the year on several occasions, and we feel extremely lucky to have her as a key part of our Rose and Crown Hotel weddings team.

But it’s not just our Top Rated Wedding Venue award that’s putting a smile on our face this January, our reviews are also providing further reason to celebrate, with The Rose and Crown Hotel Colchester currently ranked a fantastic 4.9 out of 5 stars by real reviewers on the Wedding Dates website. Some of the incredible comments and user feedback we’ve received includes praise for our food, service, and the feature details that go into making every unique wedding day complete. All elements we take care of entirely in-house for our couples who choose to marry at The Rose and Crown Hotel Colchester.

So if you’ve recently got engaged, or you’ve been let down by another venue and looking for a beautiful Essex wedding venue with last minute availability, take a look at our wedding packages today. We currently have a host of special wedding promotions running throughout 2019, including late availability and low season discounts. You can find details of all offers, and our three tiers of wedding package on our weddings page.
