About Fennes

Fennes is a wonderful wedding venue located in Essex. With a well-established reputation for outstanding customer service, your wedding day is in safe hands. We understand that you want your day to be perfect and we take special care to make your dream wedding become a reality.

Set amidst 100 acres of stunning grounds, the romantic setting provides the ideal backdrop for a memorable day, as well as the all-important wedding photos.

The Georgian manor house is more than just a beautiful wedding venue. With exclusive hire available, the venue acts as your home for the day to ensure that your day is as relaxing and enjoyable as it should be.

While the manor has an intimate atmosphere, there is also an undeniable grandeur to the venue. The high ceilings, spacious rooms and opulent décor provide an impressive setting for the day.

We can accommodate smaller, more intimate ceremonies in a variety of our licensed rooms within the house. Larger celebrations can enjoy the use of our generous Banqueting Hall and stunning, chandelier-lit Pavilion. For outdoor events, our gazebo is fully licensed to hold your ceremony within our beautiful grounds.

The Banqueting Hall can seat up to 550 guests under a stunning starlit ceiling. The flexible space is ideal for large celebrations but can also be partitioned for smaller events.

When your day is sadly over, you can enjoy your very own luxury bridal cottage. Your friends and family can also choose to stay with us at Fennes in one of our seven guest rooms.
