With the Royal Wedding just a little over a month away (May 19th eek!) excitement is building in Britain for Harry & Meghan’s big day. If like the young royals you’re also planning to tie the knot, The Rose & Crown Hotel,  can help you put together a celebration to remember.

Not only do we offer several unique wedding packages (and the opportunity to tailor-make your own). But we’re also fully licensed for weddings, marriages and civil ceremonies. So you can host your service within our stunning 14th century hotel too. (Ooh, just think of the photos!).

You’re Not In It Alone

Another big benefit of hosting your wedding with us is the opportunity to work with our award-winning wedding team! Including our in-house wedding planner Lisa. Who’s always on hand to make sure every detail of the day goes to plan, (even coordinating her uniform colours to tie in with your theme).

Lisa’s passion and enthusiasm is no doubt one of the reasons we’ve won Wedding Date’s Top Rated Venue three years in a row. In fact, here’s what one of our recently married couples had to say about their wedding at The Rose & Crown Colchester:

“The hotel and staff were fantastic especially the wedding team who couldn’t do enough for us. The hotel is really beautiful with good facilities and parking. The rooms in the main building are especially beautiful and although look very traditional they have all the mod cons needed. Would recommend the hotel, the bar and both for a wedding venue”
