Let Us Help!

While the spring and summer months typically see a spike in people tying the knot, for some dreaming of their big day, nothing but a winter wedding will cut the mustard.Whether you’re determined to say your ‘I dos’ when the days are shorter, or are brave enough to organise your dream wedding in the next few weeks/ months-  there’s nowhere more suited to a wedding in Colchester than our historic hotel.

An Award Winning Essex Wedding Venue

We’ve been hosting weddings at the Rose & Crown since 1996, and we’ve gotten rather good at it – if we do say so ourselves! Not only have we been awarded Essex and The East of England’s Best Wedding Venue on three separate occasions. But we also have hundreds of happy testimonials from couples that have hosted their wedding with us.

Especially when it comes to the lovely Lisa, our dedicated wedding coordinator. And we don’t use the word dedicated to describe Lisa lightly. She’s a force of nature when it comes to making sure every detail of your wedding is just right. But, she’s a darling too. Which is why so many of our brides and grooms have singled Lisa out to express their heartfelt thanks for all her unrelenting hard work.
