About Smeetham Hall Barn

Smeetham Hall Barn is traditionally 16th century and has been transformed into one of the top wedding venues in Essex. 

Located in the Belchamp picturesque countryside, Smeetham Hall Barn is surrounded by stunning grounds. The gardens, complete with a willow bordered lake, provide an ideal backdrop for your wedding photography.

The Barn is fully licensed for civil ceremonies and it offers the perfect, country setting for making your vows followed by your wedding breakfast and evening celebrations.

We offer either a package at amazing prices or, if you would like a little more flexibility with your menu, you may choose the ‘venue-only’ hire.  You then choose one caterer from our list of seven.

We are also very happy for you to provide your own alcohol/soft drinks for the day.  The caterers will serve these for you.  There is NO corkage charge.

The Barn, for a Saturday wedding, is available to you from 9am on the Friday until midday on the Sunday.

The Barn has a large dancefloor with the bar close by! 

Smeetham Hall Barn is a wonderful wedding venue for all seasons (the Barn and the marquee are heated to an ambient temperature) and can accommodate small, intimate weddings or more extravagant celebrations of up to 150 guests for the wedding breakfast.   

Whilst the venue boasts a truly stunning countryside location, there are excellent transport links making it easy to travel to and from London, Hertfordshire, Suffolk and Kent.

We understand how important your wedding day is and we are committed to doing everything we can to give you the day of your dreams.

• Beautifully restored 16th Century barn and marquee • No corkage charge • Ideal for summer and winter weddings • Licensed for civil ceremonies • Picturesque countryside setting • Flexible catering options

Dear Bridget, You truly made our whole families wedding day-everyone commented on the venue, staff and yourself-everything was fabulous. Whenever people ask us about our day and recommendations for venue we will not sing your praises enough. Honestly I can't put in to words how you made everything special for us.

Such a special day

Dear Bridget & Lou, We just wanted to drop you a message to say THANK YOU! We had the most amazing day on Saturday, and couldn’t have asked for it to have gone any better. You and your staff were wonderful, and made the day run so smoothly. We will remember this day forever, with such happy memories! I’ve attached a photo from the drone, taken by our friend (Sorry we forgot to inform you! He is a professional with a license by the way.) Thought you may like it for your records as it is a beautiful shot. Thanks again for letting us use your beautiful venue. Franki & Lewis

Dear Bridget, Thank you for allowing us to host our daughter's wedding at Smeetham Hall Barn. We all had a really lovely day and your venue was just amazing. I am sure the photos will be spectacular. We loved everything about the barn and marquee which looked perfect and just as they had imagined and planned. We had two very special days at Smeetham, one decorating and putting all our own decorations, bird cages and flowers in place and then the privilege of the wedding day being spent at this beautiful venue. Your hosting and organisational skills were second to none and we really thought the whole thing was amazing.

Thank you, thank you

Dear Bridget, Thank you, thank you for all you did to make Georgie and Tom's wedding day so memorable and special - for all the right reasons. Not only is Smeetham Hall Barn an absolutely stunning wedding venue but all the planning, advice and support right up to the end of the day was terrific and reassuring too! It would be lovely to come back to you one day - who knows! We don't have any more daughters but we do have some big birthdays and a 'golden'. George now thinks of Smeetham as her special place so I need diplomacy! Thank you again.

Thank you very much

By Mr & Mrs Ballard, on 14 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 11 Jun 2016

Dear Bridget, The day was magical from start to finish but the greater part of the day was spent at your wonderful barn where everything was just perfect. Your advice and enthusiasm right from the start of our planning was infectious and gave me huge confidence for what was yet to come. For me, seeing you straight away when we arrived the day before with boot loads of baskets was a relief that we were not managing the day alone. I appreciate that the barn is your business but you make each family feel special as though our wedding is the only one that matters. Thank you for giving us all such wonderful memories of a very special place.

Thank you
