Working With Houchins
From January 2017, we are delighted to be associated with a beautiful, unique venue nestled in the heart of the Essex countryside. Houchins, who we are a recommended supplier for, is owned by Adam and Anna Dixon-Smith and has been gaining popularity since it’s opening in December 2014.
Having grown up at Houchins, the venue holds special memories for Adam and has been sympathetically converted into a spectacular wedding venue with luxurious farmhouse accommodation. New for this spring is the opening of the Honeymoon Lodge which offers additional privacy for couples and increases the number of people who can stay to 16.
Houchins can accommodate relaxed intimate weddings from 25 in the oak-paneled drawing room up to a sit down wedding breakfast for 150 in the architecturally designed cedar clad barn. Dependent on the time of year couples can choose to have their ceremony either inside the venue or in the garden Loggia with guests sheltered from the vagaries of the English summer by a connected marquee.
We were lucky enough to spend a couple of days at Houchins at the end of January, as part of their open weekend. We were able to see the stunning venue dressed for a wedding, and provided the table plan, table names, menus and place cards – a great opportunity for us, as we are now able to clearly visualise the surroundings when putting together artwork for clients who have booked Houchins for their wedding, and in turn, have booked us for their stationery.
The Houchins philosophy is to make sure that every couple that gets married at the venue has the wedding day of their dreams, and is fully supported by the wonderfully dedicated team every step of the way. Their philosophy is very close to our own, which is why we are so pleased to be working in close conjunction – we are looking forward to working with some of the lovely couples who have booked Houchins for their wedding over the next couple of years.
