Channels Estate and specifically the Essex Barn is a delightful wedding venue on the edge of Chelmsford in Essex. JAM Duo love playing for weddings there and we have always found the staff incredibly friendly and helpful.


Outside, in the stunning ceremony garden overlooking the magnificent Essex countryside, the bride and groom can tie the knot under the pavilion while their guests watch the proceedings from the antique wooden pews.

When it comes to reliving the memories made on this most memorable of days, the photographs taken in the tranquil Channels’ surroundings, with its extensive grounds, fountain, lily pond and avenue of mature trees, will provide a lasting memento to the special day.

Up to 120 guests – Includes 90 seated


The beautifully restored 17th century thatched Essex Barn is an idyllic wedding venue for your special day.

Wedding GARDEN

A beautiful extension to The Essex Barn, our newly refurbished outside garden is a fantastic space to serve canapés and reception drinks.

The wedding garden is a great space for live music, children’s games and photo opportunities. It is secluded and has an intimate feel surrounded by stunning country views.


The Essex Barn can host up to 200 guests with amazing catering options.

It really is a great space to enjoy a party with your closest friends and family and of course your new Husband or Wife.
