Colchester Five Lakes

nr Colchester, Essex

From a small event to a grand affair, the Crowne Plaza Resort is the perfect location for any shape or size of wedding.

Whether intimate, spectacular, quiet, loud, low-key, themed or fantastical - we can cater to any volume of people from just 2 people to up to 2, 000 guests.

We are one of the only resorts in the South of England that can offer such a beautiful backdrop against which to host your special day, along with our special eco-friendly completely refurbished Village accommodation and state-of-the-art facilities which include a day spa, two golfcourses, ample accommodation, bars and two restaurants.

The Crowne Plaza Resort is fast becoming an internationally desired wedding destination – while sitting hidden deep in the English countryside - yet its close proximity to London Stansted International Airport and Central London means that it’s easily accessible from all parts of the world – and indeed from all corners of the UK.


‘We had the most fantastic day. Everything was exactly how we wanted it to be. The staff were absolutely brilliant, the food was beautiful and the whole day was perfect. All of the suppliers that were included in the package were also brilliant’ Mr and Mrs Jackson, Sunday 16th March 2013

Latest News.....

  • Our Silver Package display now INCLUDES music! With the majority of wedding couples wanting their wedding fireworks display choreographed to music we decided to add it to the Silver Package rather than it being an 'add-on'. Music really does add the 'wow-factor' of any display and when it's music that you, the happy couple, have chosen it makes the display very personal. The price includes a dedicated, discreet PA system to playback the fireworks sountrack to your guests and the Silver Package now makes a Wedding display to music very affordable indeed.
  • We've been working hard behind the scenes to update video content and we're pleased to say that all the packages now have updates and recent video examples. By clicking the video links you can now watch video examples of each package before you choose which one is right for you.

  • With Valentines Day less than a month away we're sure that many of you remember your proposals. Last year we helped Elliot propose to his fiancee with a surprise piece of glittering lancework asking 'MARRY ME?' surrounded by beatiful gold glittering fountains. When she said 'YES!' the sky erupted with shimmering starbursts and colourful tails. If you'd like help popping the question get in touch with us on 08000 66 58 37 and let's see what we can do. Anyone using us for a proposal who then books a wedding fireworks display gets a discount!
