Born out of a vision between two brothers to break away from the ordinary.

Passionate about delivering unique experiences, Browning Brothers have built a reputation to deliver unusual corporate events, memorable outdoor weddings and the best glamping Essex has to offer.

Based at Tey Brook Farm, just 6 miles South-West of Colchester, Essex in the village of Great Tey, Browning Bros provide luxury glamping accommodation, alternative wild weddings, corporate & team building events, and much more.

  • Two beautiful venues to choose from

  • Luxury glamping on site

  • Suitable for weddings, corporate and hen/stag parties

Teybrook Orchard

Tey Brook Orchard is a woodland venue that is hidden away from the world, and it is perfect for a quirky wedding in Essex for parties with up to 80 to 100 guests. Here, you will find 10 fixed dwellings on wooden platforms spaced around the site, providing accommodation for up to 36 guests.

Accommodation includes six bell tents, two yurts, a shepherd’s hut and even a converted grain silo. You can also hire additional bell tents in the orchard to provide your guests with a  luxury glamping experience, or tell your guests to bring their own tents, which they can pitch for a small £20 fee.

Chalkney Water Meadows

Chalkney Water Meadows in the Colne Valley is hidden away amongst ancient woodland next to a picturesque river and a tree-lined lake. It’s a stunning location for an outdoor wedding in Essex, and you can enjoy exclusive use of the venue for the whole weekend.

This venue is popular with larger groups who want a bit more space. We will pitch up 20 or more luxurious bell tents looking over the picturesque lake, and each tent can sleep between one and five guests. Or stay in Waterlily Lodge, our cosy log cabin that makes for a perfect wedding suite.

There is plenty of space to enjoy outdoor fun and festivities, and you’ll even find a ‘Getting Ready’ tent that comes with mirrors, seats, a table and everything the bride and bridesmaids need to prepare.
