About Prested Hall

Located in a stunning rural setting, Prested Hall is the perfect setting for your wedding celebrations. The Colchester-based venue, hidden down a long leafy drive, is nestled within 75 acres of charming parkland. Prested Hall has been awarded a number of awards and accolades, including the “Boutique Wedding Venue of the Year” in the 2013 Essex Wedding Awards.

The part-moated 15th-century manor house is a truly romantic setting for your wedding. The beautiful and tranquil surroundings of mature trees and a bridge, which leads over the moat to the fields beyond, create a delightful backdrop for special day. You can make the most of the stunning setting by taking memorable pictures in the little gazebo at the end of the bridge.

When you choose Prested Hall, you will enjoy exclusive use of the Hall and its 16 charming bedrooms, allowing you and up to 33 guests to stay overnight. The Dingle, a former chapel nestled near the orchard, provides an alternative tranquil bridal suite for the newlyweds. You and your guests can also enjoy a leisurely breakfast the following morning.

There are three handsome and elegant reception areas for your event: The Oak Room, The Garden Room and the large Orangery. The 18th-century Oak Room features a magnificent fireplace and exquisite stained-glass windows, while the Garden Room was formerly a 1930’s ballroom. The elegant Orangery overlooks the moat and is perfect in the summer. All three spaces, as well as the outdoor gazebo, are licensed to hold civil ceremonies. A marquee can also be arranged for summer celebrations.

Prested Hall has a great reputation for its caring, considerate staff, excellent food and relaxed atmosphere. It is the perfect place to begin your married life together.

Perfect for our NYE wedding
Venue Service

By Tom W, on 17 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 31 Dec 2016

My wife and I got married at Prested Hall on NYE and we couldn't speak more highly of the venue and the team. We stayed two nights, arriving Friday 30th... tying the knot on the Saturday. The venue is set in lovely grounds and when you book one of Prested's wedding packages (which are reasonably priced) you get exclusive use of the entire hotel, including all rooms... so it's perfect for an intimate function where your guests can stay. The team kindly put on a hot fork buffet for our guests the night before our wedding which meant we could all mingle and talk before the big day... not to mention tuck into some really lovely food. Rooms are very well appointed with extremely comfortable beds and excellent washroom facilities. Breakfast was fab with a great choice of hot and cold, healthy and not-so-healthy options; I preferred the latter! One very positive point to note on food is that then guys at Prested were brilliant at catering for my mother-in-law who suffers from coeliac disease. It is rare to find any eatery, be it a hotel or a top end restaurant, that can easily adapt a menu and give absolute confidence but Prested went above and beyond our expectations. Our events manager Jill was absolutely ace. She ran our day with military precision, making sure everyone was where they needed be and that all suppliers were on time. Effectively Jill took care of everything and we were very happy to let her do so... she clearly takes great pride in her work and it shone through in her ability to deliver exactly what we wanted.

Our Wedding
Venue Service

By Kirsten and Graeme, on 17 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 28 Dec 2016

Prested Hall is a gorgeous, cosy wedding venue with exceptional staff. Our wedding coordinator Kathryn, was so attentive and organised she took all the stress out of wedding planning, communicating with suppliers before and on our wedding day to make it all perfect. Food was a lovely and very generous portions, decor was cosy and in good repair with fireplaces and a lovely oak panelled room providing a very special backdrop for photos. The venue also has beautiful views across a lake. Lots of parking, easy to find, a well stocked bar and a spa on site made this a brilliant choice for us to have our whole wedding. My sister in law was delighted with her suite of rooms and because of the good layout of the ground floor we were able to use the whole venue. A big thank you to staff and particularly Kathryn, who did everything to make our day so special while also taking great care of our guests and suppliers.

By Clare S, on 17 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Dec 2016

Prested Hall and it's staff provide a phenomenal service. From our initial viewing of the venue to our sumptuous breakfast the morning after the wedding, all our expectations were exceeded. Kathryn was our coordinator and she did an amazing job. Everything was beautifully organised. Kathryn and her staff were calm, reassuring and efficient throughout the whole evening. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The rooms were all unique and steeped in character. The whole venue feels very warm, homely and the perfect location for a family celebration. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough.

Our Wedding 3rd December 2016
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Nice, on 17 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Dec 2016

Prested hall really is the most wonderful wedding venue. Our wedding co-ordinator Jill was so attentive and her attention to detail was immaculate. From the moment we booked the date the whole team bent over backwards to make our day perfect and it really was the most beautiful setting inside and out. We have had a sneak peek at some of our photos and they are truly stunning especially the grounds outside. We really couldn't recommend this venue enough it's perfect and the staff reflect that. We would definitely consider going back to this venue for future events as the team were so great and had so much consideration and organisation that we did not have to worry or stress about anything. They made our day perfect!!!!! Mr and Mrs Nice

Perfect Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Robert S, on 17 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 18 Nov 2016

My wife & I got married at Prested Hall on the 18th November 2016. We had an absolutely amazing day. Our wedding coordinator Jill was fantastic on the day & the months leading up to our big day, she just filled us with so much confidence she took the stress away from us. On the day all of the team at Prested Hall were unbelievable nothing was too much hassle, our guests & us were given 5 star service throughout the day. The food for the wedding breakfast, evening buffet & breakfast the next morning were all delicious. We booked out all of the rooms at the hall plus a couple of the apartments within spa building. Everyone was so pleased with their rooms. Everyone we have spoken to who attended the wedding have commented on how fantastic the venue & staff were. We are so pleased we chose to have our wedding day at Prested Hall & would recommend it to anyone.

Very Special Day
Venue Service

By Rebecca and Stuart, on 17 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 11 Nov 2016

My wife and I arranged to have our wedding at Prested Hall (under the great organisation skills of Kat) on 11/11/16. Rebecca stayed the night before in the bridal suite and then after the amazing ceremony and dinner we both stayed in the Dingle which was amazing and romantic, I would strongly recommend any couple to get married here as nothing was too much trouble for the staff, all of our guests said how much they enjoyed the wedding and how much they loved the hotel. The mail fact that guests could also use the spa easily made this special day even more special, the rooms were fantastic, the staff were amazing and the spa was great. An easy 5 stars from Rebecca and Stuart.

The Perfect Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Helen C, on 17 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 06 Nov 2016

We got married at Prested Hall October 2016 and the whole experience was nothing short of perfect. From the outset, Kathryn, our wedding coordinator, was superb - experienced, calming and patient with nothing ever being too much trouble. All the staff at Prested are polite, warm and professional and always friendly. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful. The driveway, the ceremony room, the library all provide a beautiful backdrop for pictures and the bridal suite itself is one of the prettiest rooms I have ever stayed in. The food was delicious and again staff were more than happy to change menus to suit a variety of dietary requirements - including sorting out a suitable menu for 10 toddlers! I cannot speak highly enough of our experience at Prested - just brilliant.

Wedding Day October 2016
Venue Service

By Ian B, on 17 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Oct 2016

We recently had our wedding here on 26th of October. Kat, our wedding coordinator was brilliant from day one. We were obviously both nervous like anyone else, that the day would go well, but we needn't have been. It all went to plan thanks to Kat and the team and we had an amazing day. All of our family stayed in the main house which was lovely and we also booked the adjoining apartments for additional guests. Breakfast was included in our package for everyone that stayed, which was also lovely. We can't speak highly enough of this place. Thank you to Kat and all the staff.

Perfect Wedding Venue and Stress Free Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Martin, on 05 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 31 Aug 2016

Having just returned from our wedding I cannot begin to say thank-you enough for all of the hard work that Kat (our events manager) and her team put into making our wedding day so special. Finding a venue that is so grand yet so homely is important but the service and staff matching the beautiful surroundings is very rare to find, and Prested Hall have managed to achieve this. The food throughout the day was excellent and we could not have asked for a better day (maybe slightly better weather), even the rain could not put a damper on our day, and the formation of the rooms at Prested Hall meant that there was no end of places to gather for photographs. All of the guests that stayed commented on how wonderful the rooms were and how they wanted to take the beds home they were so comfortable. I would highly recommend this venue and its entire staff if you are looking for a perfect venue and a stress free wedding day, thank-you so much once again.

Summer Wedding Package
Venue Service

By Chris R, on 06 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2016

Prested is a beautiful wedding venue with food, drink, service and support to match. In the run up to the big day our event manager (Kat) was very helpful in guiding us through what we needed to do when and the various options available to us. On the day they delivered on every level with all our specific requirements catered to; the food was excellent and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were also lovely, clean and well equipped, and having the whole hotel to ourselves meant many guests were able to stay and the celebrations continued at breakfast the following morning. Overall we had a fantastic day and would highly recommend Prested to any couple!

Our Wedding
Venue Service

By Claire B, on 06 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2016

We had looked at a lot of venues, and Prested hall was the only one that could cater to everything I wanted. We booked 18 months ahead of our wedding and although I knew exactly how I wanted everything Kat our wedding co-ordinater was amazing. Not only was she friendly and welcoming she was always at the end of phone or email when I had questions or another idea. Our drop off meeting the day before was quick and easy and everything was set out how I wanted on the wedding day meaning a stress free morning for me. Although it was the hottest day of the year our day went without any problems thanks to Kat and the Prested team... We had afternoon tea as the wedding breakfast and bbq in the evening, there was plenty of delicious food and everyone commented on how nice it was. All of our guests have said it was the best wedding they'd been too and loved the fact we had use of the whole house and grounds. Myself and the bridesmaids stayed the night before the wedding and had dinner in the bistro whom were very accommodating to some of our fussy eaters. we had all the bedrooms plus apartments on the wedding night which meant breakfast for around 55 of us the next day, which again was lovely, about 7 of the party had to leave early the next morning so again Prested went above and beyond to get them breakfast a few hours earlier than the rest of the guests. We just wish it didn't go so quick and will have to think of reasons to keep coming back to Prested hall. Amazing day at an amazing venue.

Venue Service

By Daniel & Carrie, on 06 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 10 Jul 2016

We booked our wedding here over 2years ago & have attended most open days & fayres plus a couple of afternoon teas & always got a lovely feeling that this was the right place to hold our wedding. On the 2nd July our big day came & it was everything we imagined it to be (except the rain).Guests were looked after from arrival & check in to check out. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious & service was like a military operation. Guests commented this is better than most 5* hotels. The attention to detail & the service offered as a wedding venue is fantastic. We used some of their recommended suppliers: Aurora Pearl, David Islip Photography, Simply sweet candy Ice Creams, Vanilla cake Design all of which did amazing jobs & can see why they are recommended here. A special mention is to Kathryn. She has been amazing & we can’t thank her enough for supporting us, running our day to perfection & being a great friend along the way. We can't wait to come back & visit.
