Colchester’s Premier Members' Club
The Complete Wedding Venue in Colchester
Set in a beautiful secluded environment, yet in the heart of Colchester’s town centre, the Colchester Officers’ Club has a unique charm as a sought after wedding venue in Essex.
Whatever the size of your wedding party, the Officers’ Club offers the perfect solution. Nestling behind the historic St John’s Abbey Gatehouse, the Club offers a picturesque and private setting for the successful celebration of your very special day. From the moment that you step into the grounds, our Wedding Coordinator and friendly efficient team of staff are on hand to ensure that your family, friends and, most importantly, you have a day to remember.
At the Club we are justly proud of our reputation forged over many years of getting it right. With the ability to seat up to 120 guests, your Wedding Breakfast can be tailor-made to your individual specification. This can range from a simple buffet to a gourmet feast – talk to our Head Chef who always has the right proposition for any budget. In addition to the finest food, we offer a wide selection of wines brought to you from as far afield as South America and Australia or the more traditional vineyards of Europe, all served to complement your choice of menu.
The Club is one of Colchester’s best kept secrets. Set in 4 acres of gardens and, conveniently, just a stones throw from the town centre we have space for over 100 cars so there is no reason for anyone to be late because they couldn’t park!, The Club is also licensed to hold civil ceremonies in all of our rooms so you can have your special day all under one roof.
The Club provides the ideal setting as a venue for your wedding day photographs with either the 11th Century Gatehouse or our ornamental Rose Arbour as a backdrop for the perfect shot.
After your Wedding Breakfast the Club is transformed into your party venue able to cater for up to 200 people.
We can accommodate the smallest Disco or the largest Big Band. In fact if you are unsure what entertainment to book, we are more than happy to recommend someone to suit your musical tastes.
