About Prested Hall

Discreetly hidden down a long leafy drive in 75 acres of parkland just off the A12 between Chelmsford and Colchester, Prested Hall has won several awards and accolades, including "Boutique Wedding Venue of The Year” at the Essex Wedding Awards in 2013.

There’s something truly romantic about this part-moated 15th century manor house and its mature trees, tranquil setting, and bridge leading over the moat into the fields beyond. The little gazebo at the end of the bridge offers the perfect backdrop for memorable wedding photos.

Wedding couples have exclusive use of The Hall with its 16 lovely bedrooms so they can stay overnight with up to 33 of their friends and family. The handsome reception areas include The Oak Room (an 18th century room with a magnificent fireplace and stained glass windows), The Garden Room (a 1930s' former ballroom), the elegant large Orangery overlooking the moat, and a marquee in summer. All three rooms are licensed for civil ceremonies as well as The Gazebo outside. The Dingle, a former chapel, is a luxurious bridal suite for couples preferring to stay just a stroll away from The Hall. 

Prested Hall is known for its caring staff, great food and relaxed atmosphere. Once the partying is over, Prested couples can retire for the night and join their house guests for a leisurely breakfast the next morning before driving off under the trees to their new life together.

• Gorgeous part-moated manor house, in a beautiful rural setting, for your exclusive hire, with 16 bedrooms including a romantic bridal suite. • Prested offers you a choice of three handsome reception rooms as well as a charming Gazebo for an outdoor ceremony. • A traditional marquee, overlooking the moat, offers the perfect setting for your summer wedding. • Happy Couples can escape to ‘The Dingle’ an alternative bridal suite, nestled near the orchard, a tranquil spot to spend your wedding night. • Additional accommodation and pamper packages are available at Prested's Health Club at the end of the drive. • Packages start from just £3,850 (inc VAT)

Flawless wedding venue
Venue Service

By Jess and Mark, on 16 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 30 Apr 2016

Our wedding at Prested Hall was simply the most perfect day we could have dreamed of. The whole experience of organising the day was seamless thanks to the work of Catherine, our Co-Ordinator, and of course all the other fabulous staff who made the day run so smoothly. We can honestly say that from the 8-week details meeting with Catherine all the stress and worry was gone - we knew she had everything in hand and wouldn't let us forget anything! The day itself flew by, but not for a moment were we concerned about suppliers arriving, timings or in fact anything at all. Catherine and the team did everything without us even being aware it was happening! All we had to do was enjoy the day. The venue was beautiful, the rooms were spotless, the food was plentiful and delicious. Our guests with allergies were easily catered for. We really can't recommend this venue enough. 6 months later we still get comments from our guests about how wonderful the day was. Thank you so much Prested Hall.

Summer Wedding Package

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!

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.

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.

Located on the A12 in Essex, Prested Hall boasts incredible grounds along with talented wedding planners. Although we missed the opportunity to taste the food prior to our wedding, the feedback from all of our guests spoke for itself - all our guests were delighted with their meal! We would be keen to see Prested allow their clients to bring in traditional cuisine for their celebrations including weddings or alternatively, add such suppliers to their supplier list. We would recommend Prested hall any time any day because our total experience during our wedding was phenomenal such that all our guests expressed absolute satisfaction with the entire day. The use of the grounds combined with the marquee along with the orangery room provided a wedding package that was out of this world. Our wedding planner, Kat, was fantastic!

Wedding at Prested Hall
Venue Service

By Billy M, on 06 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 19 Jun 2016

Just got married here this summer and had such an amazing day. The venue did everything we could have asked of them. The price was extremely reasonable for what the package included, such as exclusive hire of the hotel (rooms for 33 people). I would really recommend anyone looking at venues to look at Prested hall as an option. Also would like to say a big thank you to all of the staff at Prested especially Kathryn who was our wedding planner for the big day and was amazing. Also as a hotel all of the rooms are lovely and all food we were served there was excellent. They also have very nice spa and sports facilities there.

By Bride, on 06 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 24 May 2016

After just holding our wedding at Prested Hall I would like to thank all the staff, especially our wedding co-ordinator Jill, for making our day very special and one to remember! From start to finish the level of service we received was faultless and you were always on hand to handle every query and get every last detail of our wedding just right. The venue and grounds are beautiful and have made for fabulous photos, and the hotel rooms are stylish, comfy and spacious. I have had endless comments from our guests complimenting the food, the staff, the atmosphere – everything really! To anyone who is on the hunt for a wedding venue, I cannot recommend Prested Hall highly enough!

My husband and I got married on March 24th 2016and would like to say a big thank-you to our amazing wedding planner Jill and all her team at Prested for making our wedding day so perfect. The rooms, the food, location and décor were all perfect. We had nothing but high praise from all our guests regarding the venue, the staff and the food. From day one Jill was amazing and it was wonderful not to have to worry about a thing. The timing and flow of the day was seamless. We could not have asked for anything else. Our day was just perfect. Many thanks

We held our wedding at Prested Hall on February 27 2016, and couldn't have been happier with the venue, the quality of food, the excellent rooms and the great staff, in particular our wedding planner Kathryn, who went above and beyond to ensure our day ran so smoothly. The grounds made for some lovely pictures and we were made to feel extremely welcome. Although the venue probably does weddings all the time, we felt like we were the only wedding. We would definitely recommend Prested Hall for weddings, overnight stays or even just afternoon tea or dinner!

From the second my husband and I booked Prested hall for our wedding I knew we had made the right choice from start to finish they were amazing and the day went off without a hitch thanks to our wedding coordinator Kat. We didn't have to worry about a single thing on the day. The food was amazing and there was lots of it! The accommodation was beautiful too big comfy beds everyone had a good night’s sleep, I will definitely be back to check out the spa, although I didn't have a chance for a dip myself my sister assures me that the spa pool was lovely!

My nephew was married here in November. The whole evening was delightful. The building is warm and welcoming with lovely period features. The wedding planner was on hand to make sure everything went smoothly which meant a very relaxed and enjoyable evening for the groom's mother, my sister.
