Crondon Park is a historic wedding venue located in Stock, Essex's beautiful and peaceful countryside, offering exclusive use for grand affairs. This award-winning setting is a fine example of 17th-century architecture, with its Jacobean barn providing a truly unique atmosphere. Set in the picturesque surroundings of Stock Valley, this secluded property is the ideal space for a peaceful country wedding.

Facilities and Capacity

The Baronial Suite is the beating heart of Crondon Park, bursting with character, charm, and stunning staging areas. The Ryder Room is the designated civil ceremony space overlooking the estate's beautiful gardens. Outside, a gorgeous floral canopy provides a romantic amphitheatre-style setting for summer nuptials. The Baronial Hall is the main function room, embracing an authentic Tudor barn aesthetic. The room features a rare Rosewood floor beneath provocative light oak timber beams. The effect is one of dignified splendour that celebrates its centuries-old roots. From here, couples will have private access to a beautiful half-acre garden where they take those all-important photographs. A full-stocked bar opens out to the hall, with an external seating area available just beside. All three sites share themed lighting that can be adjusted to match the chosen colour scheme. To-be-weds will also have use of the Willows, a lockable room with toilet facilities attached to the Ryder Room. Thirty yards from the property awaits the get-ready suite, complete with a four-poster bed, lounge area, multiple mirrors, and prime lighting. A luxury selection of comfortable suites, with an outdoor patio and garden, are also available for guests to retire.

New to the venue we are able to offer for night before accommodation, located separately from the Baronial Hall. It can sleep up to 8 people, has 2 dressing tables and private patio, allowing the bridal party to prepare themselves prior to the ceremony. For accommodation on the night of the wedding, we have a Bridal Suite with private courtyard and parking, as well as 5 guest rooms within the main building.

Best day ever

We just felt the needed to say how great full we are for everything you did for us to make yesterday go as effortless as it did.
You have been amazing from start to finish and we hope all our friends get married at Crondon in the future because we can’t wait to come back.
I even heard Jo asked people to sign our guest book because she didn’t want us not to have any messages in there, that was so lovely...
You guys are made for the job that you do and made us feel so thank you so much.
Best day EVER :-) Thank you!!!

The best day ever

As soon as we came to look round Crondon Park we knew it was our venue and we cancelled our other viewings. We had our wedding here last Friday and it was amazing. The staff were so great in the run up to the wedding and on the day, answering all our questions, setting up the venue for us in the morning, and making sure the day ran seamlessly. All our guests commented on how stunning the venue is and how good the food was, many guests have said it was the best wedding food they have ever had. The rooms are really comfy as well. We are so so glad that we chose Crondon Park for our wedding and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you!

Amazing venue, excellent staff.

We had our big day! Us and our guests absolutely loved the grounds, rooms, facilities and food at Crondon Park. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Events team, every single one of them were amazing, especially Kara and Carly, we appreciate all that you have done for us leading up to the wedding and on the day, you're both super stars! Our wedding was very diverse and Crondon Park were able to be flexible with us in terms of respecting/accommodating the diverse religions and cultures we had mixing. Be rest assured, the food here is delicious, we are massive foodies, all our courses were top notch and we had many compliments on the food from our guests. Thank you for helping us create our dream wedding.

Thank you Crondon Park! 11/10

Thank you Crondon Park! We couldn't have picked a more perfect venue for our wedding. From the moment guests started arriving we had people coming up to us telling us what a beautiful venue we'd chosen and everyone raved about how tasty the food was, most notably the duck. We'd like to thank Tracey, in particular, and everyone who assisted at Crondon Park for all of your hard work. It was a long day for you all, but we couldn't fault your professionalism nor would we change a single detail! If we could, we'd return in a heartbeat to relive it all over again. Lots of post-wedding love, Sam and Becky xxx

Dreams come true

What an amazing place the reviews, the pictures just don’t do it enough justice this is definitely the best barn venue in Essex! Jo went out of her way to make my day run smooth and I will be forever grateful. Whatever questions I asked Jo or Fiona they always said yes and made everything happen they took so much stress away and as a bride you definitely need that. The team at Crondon are all perfectionists and they deliver everything to the final detail and that was comments coming from my guests so as a bride what more could you ask for? They gave me a wedding more than I could have ever have wished for and me and my husband will be forever grateful x

Amazing venue

Booked Crondon via zoom during covid and even then we knew it was the one! What a special place. We loved our day and everyone even a week later have mentioned how amazing the staff was! The meal service and the organisation of the entire day! We even saw some selfies with the waiting staff! The food was incredible and we still get comments on how amazing the meal was. Tracey was a GODSEND. She made the entire day smooth running and we couldn't have done it without her. My maid of honour is a wedding planner and she even said it was spectacular from a wedding planners point of view. It was truly the best day of our lives all thanks to the staff at Crondon. It will remain a place dear to our hearts.

A perfect day

Crondon park was the most amazing wedding venue. The staff were incredible, setting up everything exactly how I wanted so I didn’t have to worry about it myself, answering a million questions I had and giving me the best ‘front of house’ lady to oversee the entire day and make sure everything went perfectly. The food was insane and they were so helpful with all our guests dietary requirements.

The best day of our lives

Wow, what can we say, we had the best day. Originally booked in August 2019 and postponed twice both July 20 + 21. March was our next date and oh how lucky where we, 17 degrees and full blue sky and sunshine. Crondon you did us proud from our first visit back in August 19, through all the cancellations and questions we had you were there for us. The day Tracey and the team were on it. The food was amazing, the feedback from our guests was amazing. The grounds for photo's amazing... "just amazing" Breakfast the next morning yep amazing. Thank you so so much for the best day of our lives.

The best there is!

I cannot thank all the girls at Crondon Park enough for making our day so special.

Our wedding had to be hastily moved forward from the 5th to 4th November due to the lockdown, and to say the the service we received was incredible would be an understatement; they even managed to make us last minute cupcakes! Nothing is ever too much for the girls at Crondon.

The bridal suite is stunning, my girls absolutely LOVED their stay and it was so perfect for us all to get ready in. The venue itself is beautiful and was exactly what we wanted for our rustic theme. I would recommend to any bride.

I feel so so lucky that we will get to relive this day again for our Reception in July 2021 and get to see the beautiful venue in a summer setting, we wouldn't want to have it anywhere else.

Faultless service, beautiful venue, and one of a kind ladies running the show - what more could a girl ask for.

Thank you for giving us a day dreams are made of.

Love Mr & Mrs Crossfield xxx

Special Place for a Special Day

The Crondon Park team made sure we had a day to remember. They guided us, never made us feel like we asked too many questions, or feel like we were one of a stream of couples. They made us feel special and excited. We and our guests had such an incredible day. Our guests raved about the food. Children were safe to run in the walled garden so parents could relax - and no one fell in the fountain! People were captivated by the venue. The Baronial Hall was cosy and intimate, and then became a great space for people to dance and throw some shapes. It was idyllic, rustic and romantic. It really was a perfect day. Thank you Crondon Park
