Summary

Le Talbooth is one of the finest wedding venues in East Anglia. Originally the 'toll booth' for river traffic in the 1600's guests can expect a building that is full of character in an unrivalled position beside the river Stour.

What makes Le Talbooth a unique wedding venue?

Dedicated wedding planners are all part of the service if you choose to get married at Le Talbooth; they will be with you every step of the way from the first viewing, planning meeting through to the day itself. Coupled with experienced front of house staff, event manager and chef's a wedding at Le Talbooth is stress free from beginning to end. Wedding parties love the unique setting beside the Stour which makes for the perfect photos opportunities. New for 2018, the River Room has a civil wedding license for up to 130 people which means that guests can enjoy exclusivity of the restaurant, grounds and marquee all day until 7.00pm

What is a typical wedding like at Le Talbooth?

A typical wedding at Le Talbooth starts with the civil ceremony in the River Room followed by drinks and canapes on the terrace and lawns beside the river. Guests are then invited into the marquee on the upper terrace for the wedding breakfast which is usually a three course sit down with speeches either before or after the meal. The party then carries on into the evening with further guests arriving for dancing and BBQ.

What Wedding Packages does Le Talbooth offer?

Every wedding is different and the event team at Le Talbooth will put together a day that is unique to every couple. Occasionally the venue will offer discounted hire charge including canapes so it always worth checking the website for details

What Extra facilities does Le Talbooth have to assist couples to have the perfect day?

Le Talbooth provides a dedicated event planner and a menu and wine tasting in the restaurant to help you decide on the menu.

Where is Le Talbooth located?

Le Talbooth is situated on the river Stour in Dedham on the north Essex/Suffolk border in the Dedham Vale. The vale is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) yet easily accessible from the A12 just north of Colchester.

Hi Keighley

I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you and your team for our special day!

It was absolutely perfect and I enjoyed every second! I wouldn’t have changed a thing. All the guests were wowed by the venue and nothing was too much trouble.

The next day everything from our treatments to lunch at the pool house was amazing.

Our dinner at The Talbooth was outstanding and the little touches made it all so special.

Even the little things like getting back to our room and they had prepared our bed and put the lights on for us made it that more memorable. Your staff work incredibly hard and they should all be very proud of themselves. Please pass on our thank you’s.

I can’t wait to come and stay next year for our anniversary!!

Thank you again

G and J

Hi Keighley,

We wanted to say thank you again for all of your help along the way for our reception. It was a fantastic day and everyone at Le Talbooth made it as stress-free as it could be.

Also special thanks to Sarah who pretty much made sure that we were treated like royalty and made the afternoon and evening go so smoothly. Also thank you for recommending Dreamwave and W Flowers as they were so professional and helpful throughout.

Dear Alice and Sarah,

We just wanted to write you a note to say a huge thank you for all of your help with our amazing wedding day.
Alice – we loved working with you in the lead up to the big day. We felt like we clicked with you as soon as we had our first planning meeting, and you made sure all of our ideas came to life. Le Talbooth means a great deal to me and my family, and it was incredible to be standing there on the day with all of our guests. Thank you for all of our back and forth emails, and making sure every detail was perfect. We began the day knowing that the reception was completely under control, and we really appreciated that.
Sarah – what an amazing job you did on the day. Our parents were full of praise of how you managed the event, and made sure everything we asked for was provided immediately. We felt so well looked after. The waiting staff were also fantastic, and were attentive without being pretentious and over the top. I felt like I was at home all day. My mum couldn’t believe you’d even thought to put our spare shoes under our seats! You really did think of everything.
Please pass on our thanks to all of the staff who worked on our wedding. We will definitely be at Le Talbooth and Milsoms on many more occasions, and we are so grateful that it played such a special part in our wedding day. It goes without saying that we are of course happy for you to use any photos, just let me know if you’d like me to send some photos over when I receive them.

Hi Alex,

I hope you are well.

So sorry for the late response, first day back to reality from our honeymoon!!

We had the most special day ever, and it was everything I wished for. Everyone had a brilliant day – thank you for all your support and thank you to the staff on the day.

Once we receive the official photos, I will be sending a thank you card to Le Talbooth.
