Welcome to the Great Priory Barn located just north of Braintree in Essex. This wedding venue is a medieval timber framed thatched barley barn, creating the ideal romantic setting to host your special day.
The building is rustic and original, but at the same time the necessary modern features such as kitchen and cloakrooms have been added making it a convenient location to host your celebrations. Additional catering requirements can also be accommodated in the adjacent timber framed wheat barn.
The capacity ranges from 100 to 130 people, making it the perfect venue for a medium to large sized event. You also have the option to hire a marquee and pitch in the beautiful grounds if required. The venue is usually hired out over a three day period, allowing you plenty of time to dress it according to your own tastes and coordinate suppliers and caterers, as well as pack up after the event.
As a flexible and versatile blank canvas, this venue is ideal for couples looking to get creative and bring together elements for their perfect day. Without decor restrictions and in-house caterers, you can truly create a day that is completely unique to you. Plus, with woodland on the doorstep, you can host enchanting summer drinks receptions and of course capture some truly romantic wedding photographs.
