    Fantastic Wedding Venue!

    We cannot recommend East Mersea Hall highly enough as a wedding venue. The grounds are stunning, with a great balance between spaciousness and cosiness. Kirsty, the Wedding and Events Manager, is relentlessly supportive and highly knowledgeable about everything weddings. This was a huge help to us as we didn't know where to start! During the pandemic, Kirsty has been super understanding and has allowed us to postpone on two occasions with no hassles at all. She is amazing!

    The best day of our lives

    East Mersea Hall was absolutely perfect. We fell in love with it instantly when we looked around, and Mersea itself was a special place for us as we spent a lot of time there when we started dating. It really is a gem. The grounds are stunning and our guests were constantly talking about it for days afterwards. The water lillies were in bloom and the grounds were perfect for guests to mingle and provided many beautiful photo opportunities. The staff took great care of us and our guests throughout the day and helped keep us organised. Anneka our organiser was great, especially in the lead up to the wedding helping advise us on what needed to be done and adapting to last minute changes. We were thrilled to find a venue that would allow our dog there for the ceremony and reception drinks too.
    I cannot stress enough how much we loved our day and it will be the best of memories for years to come.

    Truly amazing from start to finish.

    As soon as we saw this venue we fell in love with it. We made an appointment to view the grounds, which we done and then booked it straight away. We didn’t even look at any other venues. It was just everything and more. Anneka and Kirsty were absolutely amazing and made our day so special. They took care of everything, there was constant communication, Anneka helped me with all the planning as I didn’t have a clue. There was just nothing that we could have added into this day, everything was already taken care of. The grounds are absolutely stunning, we had a woodland wedding which was incredible. The bbq food was so delicious too. You will not be disappointed with this venue or the staff, truly fantastic. Thank you ♥️♥️♥️

    Perfect Venue. You won't be disappointed!

    Kirsty and Anneka at East Mersea Hall were the perfect wedding planners we could have hoped for.

    3 years waiting to be married and it definitely was worth the wait.

    ALL of our guests were saying how wonderful the venue is. They couldn't believe how we had found a place with the setting it has, how nice the reception/ disco was and how good the food was. So much food!!!

    Thank you all so much for making our day run so smoothly. We definitely couldn't have done it without you both.

    We wish you all the success for the future and are already trying to figure out a way we can come back to have another party with you!

    Shivers. Booked. Married.

    This venue is absolutely stunning! It gave us shivers on our first visit within seconds! This venue has so many beautiful things it’s hard to know where to start!
    Anneka! Anneka was our go to girl for everything! She was herself, funny helpful and tells you how it is. If she can do it she will! There was a little confusion over the vegetarian tasting plates but Anneka took over and sorted it and calmed me out straight away! She was incredible all the way throughout!

    We love nature and loved the massive lake! Everyone else did too! The team made a house for the little ducks born a week before our wedding! The swing on the other side of the lake is so beautiful especially to take a break to let things sink in while your guests mingle on the other side of the lake (the kids loved it too!)
    The outside ceremony was perfect! Luckily we didn’t have to use the inside however this was just beautiful with a barn like feeling!

    The food, we opted for a hog roast with pulled jackfruit for us vegetarians. Delicious. Everyone loved it! It was so nice with the endless salad choices on the side to choose from!

    You can also use the boat permitting you have good weather. This was so much fun and would definitely recommend! I love being able so say “yeah I rowed my husband in boat in my wedding dress!”

    And if you have made if this far down my review I would definitely say go have a look, fall in love, put your deposit down, get married, have the best day and live your life to the fullest!

    Wow wow wow


    There is not enough words to explain how amazing this venue is so let me start off by saying thank you thank you thank you

    So our wedding was a bit of a rushed one as my grandparents both got ill I wanted to grant them there wish in being at there first granddaughters wedding seeing one of there grandchildren walk down the aisle

    From a child I spent my holidays and weekends at Mersea island.
    It’s like a second home to me so after looking in my local area I thought why not have a look you never know..

    I came across this beautiful place that stole my heart. From meeting with Kirsty and anneka being shown around I just new this was special and met all my expectations.
    Kirsty and anneka knew of my situation and helped the best to there capability’s and gave me my dream wedding for our buget and wow did they not miss anything. I can not thank the staff enough the food is honestly the best I have tasted starting with the canapés my son who is 8 said them duck spring rolls was the best we picked duck spring rolls mini cheese burgers and mini jacket potato with cream cheese and chive. I generally mean that they don’t hold back either which is so good, we had hog roast buffet for our main and the evening we had pizza and fish and chip cones I would buy them for a take away if I could and it’s made me want to buy a pizza oven 😂 the chef was so polite and he was very happy to do anything we asked. the venue went above and beyond from food tasting to emails upon emails and reply’s to myself to make sure I didn’t need anything or what I needed to do next .to the day time and evening the staff bent over backwards to help my guests and myself and my now husband . I can not wait to see what this Venus’s future is I can not praise this venue and staff enough for everything they have done the grounds are stunning and I wish you all the best in the future…. See you soon 1000% cheers to more memories

    Everything we could have hoped for and more!

    East Mersea Hall was everything we could have hoped for and more. The grounds are just idyllic and everyone was obsessed with how beautiful it was.

    The staff are so helpful, organised and attentive and we didn’t have anything to worry about on the day. Kirsty and Anneka were so flexible with anything I had in mind for decorations and helped to set everything up just as we had imagined it. The food was utterly delicious and everyone commented on how generous all of the servings were!

    So we would like to say a massive thank you for making our day absolutely perfect. We wouldn’t have changed a thing. Also, a special thank you to Anneka for cleaning the boat before we got in (hehe). You all really do go above and beyond.

    Much love and gratitude,
    Sam and Nicole :)

    Amazing!

    Words cannot describe how beautiful East Mersea Hall is.

    We booked the venue in 2020 during the pandemic and didn't get the opportunity to view it. Kirsty and Anneka has been amazing. They showed us around the venue via video call. The first time we actually got to see the venue was the day before the wedding which was in September 2021. It was exactly as the pictures online and on Instagram. The venue was so beautiful that it required minimal decorations.

    The team kept us informed throughout and have been very helpful and supportive. They communicated effectively with us and made sure everything ran smoothly on the day. Even our guests were gushing about how stunning the venue looked. We took our vows outdoor and had our reception indoors. I love that we didnt have to commute far between vows and the reception. The outdoor scenery was amazing. We even took pictures on the boat by the lake.

    I would 100 percent recommend East Mersea Hall to anyone. You will be in great hands!!!

    Totally amazing

    Kirsty and Anneka and the whole team are fabulous, the lockdown and postponement of 2020 just made everything even more perfect as the excitement was even higher when we finally arrived at the most beautifully presented grounds and accommodation. The venue has the most picture perfect spots everywhere we were spoilt for choice from the lake, to the swing, to the woodland arch, to the magical driveway with the lovely lampposts, to the outdoor ceremony area with it’s beautiful walled garden. Everyone loved the day which went seamlessly thanks to Anneka and the staff who made everything go like clockwork. The food was fabulous beautifully presented and plentiful from the canapés to the hog roast to the fish and chips cones for supper.
    Nothing was too much trouble and everyone made the day perfect.
    Go visit it’s the best place for a wedding you won’t regret it.

    Wedding Day of Dreams!

    There are no amount of words for us to describe how perfect our wedding day was. We are so grateful that we were able to celebrate our special day at East Mersea Hall. The venue is honestly breathtaking from day to night, which has been captured so perfectly within our wedding photos. The location is beautiful and was complimented by every guest as it has something for everyone. Our wedding was festival themed so it was the most perfect setting. Kirsty and Anneka were absolutely amazing and we couldn’t have wished for better hosts to help us pull of SHEERFEST 2021!

    Absolutely incredible

    24.07.2021 - the best day of our life!

    Kirsty and team have been incredible this last year, with the lockdowns and postponements I cannot thank Kirsty enough for the love, care and reassurance she gave us over one of the most stressful year.

    Having to postpone due to the pandemic was never going to be easy but knowing Kirsty was there made things run as smoothly as it could, there was times we both felt like throwing in the towel and canceling but after a quick phone call with Kirsty and listening to her positive thinking the excitement in our belly's was back.

    Her and her team was absolutely faultless throughout the whole process from booking the wedding until the last drink was served.

    The grounds are stunning, the staff are wonderful. I have been to lots of wedding venues as a makeup artist but this is most beautiful wedding venue of them all!

    EVERYTHING ran so smoothly and it was honestly the best day of our life.

    Perfect Outdoor Woodland Venue

    We had our wedding in the grounds of East Mersea Hall and after a year and a half of lockdowns and COVID it was the perfect venue for a party. The woodland was a great outdoor space for our ceremony, both spacious and intimate. The venue also has so many other outdoor spaces which everybody enjoyed spending most of the day in and there is also a lovely Pavillon for the seated meal. There is also a beautiful lake, a rope swing, and bridal suite to get ready in and later spend your first night as a married couple in. All the guests said the venue was stunning and the kids enjoyed running around and playing garden games etc. Kirsty and the team delivered impeccable service and their experience shows. Since taking the place over they have really upgraded it. We would highly recommend this wedding venue, especially if you are having a lot of guests

    Wonderful Wedding Experience

    We were married at East Mersea Hall on a lovely summers day in July. The setting is magical. We looked at a number of venues and it is head an shoulders the best one in the area. Anneka was an amazingly supportive host. The rest of the team were incredibly professional. The pre-wedding organisation was faultless. Nothing was too much trouble. We always felt that we were in safe hands. There were a number of nice touches throughout the day including advising on the confetti shot and bringing us drinks immediately after the ceremony. The food for the wedding breakfast was excellent. All in all an amazing experience and a day we will never forget.
