About Fennes

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 Honeymoon Cottage. Your friends and family can also choose to stay with us at Fennes in one of our 13 guest rooms.

    Beautiful but with hidden charges everywhere

    Nice looking venue - shame about the management.

    Failed to disclose a number of charges (like for the lights which are built into the ceiling in the disco - apparently you have to pay to turn the lights on!) when quoting. Trumped up a £250 charge for mopping sick in one toilet cubicle and unblocking a sink in a bedroom (refused to detail how you spend 20 man hours on a 5 minute job); got caught twice in inconsistencies in their stories to justify the charges; 'so sue me' was the tone of response on the phone.

    So the staff tried hard on the day, the venue looks nice but the management are so far out for every penny they will make things up to charge more. Could have been a good experience but manager went out of her way to gain a bad reputation it would seem - would have been 5 stars without her intervention.

    Also - venue co-ordinator got changed twice through process of marrying (which was only 4 months) with no handovers; and tap in the wedding cottage was so corroded it wouldn't turn off - leading to a midnight maintenance visit. Little of this was taken into account though of course with their made up, non-contracted charges.

    Avoid.

    A huge thank you!

    Hi Sue,

    We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you, for making our day perfect for us. Everything was just as we wanted and the day ran so smoothly and we have no doubt, that that was absolutely because of you! You were so calm and collected on the day that it put us both at ease! You were brilliant both before and on the day and we can't thank you enough!

    We've had so many comments from our guests on how lovely the day was, from the venue, to the staff and of course the food. A few people even said that the food was the best wedding food they'd ever had and we would agree. It was delicious! Please can you pass on our thanks and compliments to the chefs!

    We would also like to thank everyone involved, from the point of viewing the venue and booking it, to those working on the Planning Nights, up to and including those working on Tuesday. It's been a stress free process and a pleasure to organise our wedding with you all. We didn't feel stressed at any point and that was down to the fantastic team at Fennes - so thank you!!

    We literally cannot thank you all enough for giving us the best day ever! We just can't believe that it's already been a week - we wish we could do it all again!!

    Wishing you all the best and we hope one day, we can visit Fennes, again as someone else guests!

    Kind Regards,

    Mr and Mrs Graham

    Thank you!

    Thank you so much for everything you did for us on Friday! All of our guests have commented on how fantastic and professional the whole team were and that the service was amazing! The food was outstanding, and everyone is amazed that every dish was piping hot from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble and we really appreciate how special you made our day.

    Thanks once again,
    Kirsty and Peter
