Nick & Kirstys wedding 4th July 2019
Venue Service

By Kirsty and Nick James, on 07 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 04 Jul 2019

We looked at many venues to hold our ceremony and by far for a community wedding this is the best place in Essex! From the minute you drive it to Cressing Temple the surroundings are beautiful and extremely well kept. There is a lovely gravel driveway and plenty of parking for guests. The wedding car is allowed to make its way down a separate driveway so that the Bride can get out of her car directly outside where the ceremony is to be held. Our ceremony was held in a beautiful room of the 16th Century house. The room held just 36 guests which though small made it feel very personal and suited us perfectly. Gemma our wedding co-ordinator allowed us to use our own stylists who transformed the seating and allowed us to make our own personal touches. The wedding was very well organised by Gemma and she made sure that Every one was where they should be for timings etc which made it just perfect. We were extremely lucky on our special day and the sun shone on us, so when the ceremony was over we made our way over to the walled garden with our guests where we were able to have some spectacular pictures taken. The garden is beautiful and made the perfect back drop for pictures. As we opted for a community wedding this meant that we were unable to provide our guests with refreshments during the photos but there is a fantastic cafe at the entrance to the site so our guests made good use of this whist we had photos of just the bride and groom. We couldn't fault our wedding ceremony at Cressing Temple and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the venue to anyone looking to tie the knot.

Great Location
Venue Service

By Karen and Glen, on 11 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 29 Jun 2019

Looked at Cressing temple Community venue and loved the thought of holding my small and personal service here so booked the date. It is set in the best location and so quite. From the minute you drive it to Cressing Temple the surroundings are beautiful and extremely well kept. There is a lovely gravel driveway and plenty of parking for guests. There was space right out side the lovely white house where the room is within for our disabled guest to park so they did not have far to walk. The wedding car and bridesmaids car were allowed to make its way down a separate driveway so that the Bride can get out of her car directly outside where the ceremony is to be held. Our ceremony was held in a beautiful room of the 16th Century house. The room held just 36 guests which though small made it feel very personal and suited us perfectly. The wedding was very well organised by Gemma and she made sure that Every one was where they should be for timings etc which made it just perfect.

Karen & Kevin's wedding
Venue Service

By Karen & Kevin French, on 10 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2019

We had a small intimate wedding ceremony in the Farmhouse and for us this venue would have been hard to beat. The grounds are great too with plenty of parking, tea room for the early guests and plenty of beautiful backdrops for wedding photos. Our ceremony was conducted by two lovely ladies who helped us enjoy what everyone agreed was a warm and special occasion, in a delightfully dignified wood panelled room. Special thanks to Gemma who helped us arrange the wedding for the time and date we wanted.

Wedding at The Farmhouse
Venue Service

By Julie Jefferies, on 07 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 31 May 2018

From start to finish we were made to feel special even though we had a small and simple ceremony. The Farmhouse had The Oak Room where we got married and then we took photos in the beautiful walled garden. Staff from Essex County Council were excellent.
