About Fennes

Fennes Road, Bocking, Braintree
Essex, CM7 5PL

Fennes is a wonderful wedding venue located in Essex. With a well-established reputation for outstanding customer service, your wedding day is in safe hands. We understand that you want your day to be perfect and we take special care to make your dream wedding become a reality.

Set amidst 100 acres of stunning grounds, the romantic setting provides the ideal backdrop for a memorable day, as well as the all-important wedding photos.

The Georgian manor house is more than just a beautiful wedding venue. With exclusive hire available, the venue acts as your home for the day to ensure that your day is as relaxing and enjoyable as it should be.

While the manor has an intimate atmosphere, there is also an undeniable grandeur to the venue. The high ceilings, spacious rooms and opulent décor provide an impressive setting for the day.

We can accommodate smaller, more intimate ceremonies in a variety of our licensed rooms within the house. Larger celebrations can enjoy the use of our generous Banqueting Hall and stunning, chandelier-lit Pavilion. For outdoor events, our gazebo is fully licensed to hold your ceremony within our beautiful grounds.

The Banqueting Hall can seat up to 500 guests under a stunning starlit ceiling. The flexible space is ideal for large celebrations but can also be partitioned for smaller events.

When your day is sadly over, you can enjoy your very own luxury bridal cottage. Your friends and family can also choose to stay with us at Fennes in one of our 13 guest rooms.

We just wanted to send a quick message of thanks for our wedding on Monday. Everything was perfect in every way, and we are enormously grateful to you and all the staff at Fennes. The day was everything we wanted, and more. All of our guests were full of praise for the staff, the venue and the food. Photos to of course follow.

Poor poor venue
Venue Service

By arun, on 02 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 22 Jul 2018

This wedding venue is extremely poor and would avoid. The rooms are cramped and overpriced. A waiter burst into our room without knocking and check out was at 9am!! Look else where for someone that knows what they are doing

We are saddened to read your comments following such a beautiful wedding held here at Fennes, and would have welcomed the opportunity to look into this matter sooner should you have contacted us directly. We can only apologise again for the member of staff who entered your room unannounced, however we had been requested to attend your room to rectify an issue you had reported in your bathroom, which we had been asked to do so immediately. Please be assured that all staff have been reminded of the procedure to prevent any further issues going forward. Lastly, I would like to address your comment regarding our accommodation. Fennes is a Beautiful Georgian Manor House with 14 rooms available - these range from Suites equipped with a four poster bed and Jacuzzi bathroom suit, to a standard double. Although they all range in price, due to the size they are all adequately furnished and fit for purpose for a one night stay following a wedding. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your feedback, as this only helps us further improve our service to our couples and their guests who visit our venue.

Thank you!

Everyone probably says it but our wedding day was the best day to date. We believe that was down to us choosing an amazing venue. You were so informative and always on hand to help. You even helped to fix my cake and kept me calm. I can't thank you enough and i wish i could do it all again!
