Hutton Hall is a pristine estate based in Brentwood, Essex. This wedding venue is set in the middle of eight acres of beautifully manicured gardens in a stunning location opposite the village church. The team offer couples a choice of where they have their reception either inside a large marquee or to have a more intimate wedding breakfast inside the Hall.
Facilities and Capacity
The marquee at Hutton Hall can seat up to 120 guests and is near a rich rose garden with backdrop views of the house and grounds. The historic Blue Room, Grand Hall and Library offer great celebration spaces for guests to gather and use for the drinks reception, the wedding breakfast and the evening reception. The venue also offers couples the option to have an outdoor civil ceremony, located in a beautiful tranquil position in the garden. While the dressing room is something that is so beautiful it must be seen to be believed. Guest-of-honours have the luxury of getting ready with their wedding party in a large, high ceiling, white preparation room and adjoining listed panelled bedroom with fabulous views of the sweeping drive and front gardens. The grand-sized bathroom adds to this luxury with chandeliers and a freestanding bathtub.
The management team encourages every happy couple to come and see Hutton Hall and enjoy the experience from the moment they drive down the sweeping driveway to picturing their wedding in this peaceful setting. At Hutton Hall, there can be a new experience for all with the following:
- Exclusive use of the Hall and grounds for the entire day
- Dressing rooms
- Overnight accommodation
- Civil ceremony license

Our amazing wedding day!
A special mention to the incredible Ray, who ensured our wedding day went smoothly, as well as keeping on top of the beautiful roaring fires! Also, a special mention to Marion, who ended up driving me and my Mum to the church when the rain scuppered my country walk plans. All our very dear friends and family, have complimented us on such a beautiful venue choice, and how it is possibly the best wedding they've ever been to.
So, thank you once again for all you did. May we wander the country lane for weekends to come, dreaming of our very special wedding day at Hutton Hall.
Venue of our dreams!
We hired the bridal suite and bedrooms the night before the wedding so we had access to the light, bright and lovely preparation room for myself, mum and bridesmaids to get ready with an early start on the day.
The marquee set up for the wedding breakfast was beautiful overlooking the grounds and the fountains and with the sides up as it was a nice day was just perfect.
I was initially a little worried about the space as we had 100 guests in the day time, and 30+ in the evening, but I shouldn't have been concerned as it worked brilliantly and never felt overcrowded. The dancefloor even though it's a separate room was constantly busy all night and the courtyard and main hall and bars were perfect for people to mingle!
We had so many compliments from friends and family about what a great venue and day it was and we were honestly thrilled.
The Georgian Manor house with its high ceilings and beautiful features was ideal as we wanted light and airy, with a feeling of glamour / grandeur. I have to say it had all this, while also feeling intimate.
We fell in love with Hutton Hall straight away, and booked very quickly after our first viewing. Francesca and Paula are brilliant and answered all my many questions and worked with us to coordinate the day. They also work with a great selection of their tried and tested suppliers who are not only nice people but deliver a top class service.
I cannot recommend Hutton Hall enough, and if you have any doubts over the suppliers included in the packages, we can confirm Limeberry catering provided a slick service the food was delicious, hot and well presented with a lovely team of waiting staff and DJ AJ (Paul G) was fantastic keeping the dancefloor busy all night too. They have such a great team on board here, which makes life so much easier as a bride, if I'd have known how great it was going to be, i wouldn't have wasted less time worrying about the little things!
Thank you so much for the best day of our lives.

The most magical day
It is run by the two loveliest ladies - Paola and Francesca who are always on hand to answer (my many!) questions.
The evening before myself and my bridesmaids stayed at the venue which I recommend doing as it made the build up so special. Paola bought us a nice cold bottle of Prosecco up and a lovely cup of tea for me (my favourite!). We ordered in food and had a really relaxed luxurious night in their beautiful bedrooms - the huge bridal suite bath is a must!
The day of the wedding was seamless. Everyone who came said it was the most beautiful venue they’d been to. The entrance hall when you walk in is breathtaking and there are many silk flower arrangements around helping the decor of the day look extra stunning.
The food on the day was spectacular. We used Limeberry who are a preferred supplier of the venue and I’m extremely fussy on food but wow - they really blew us away! The food was plentiful (nothing worse than being hungry at a wedding but no chance here!) and Angie who ran the catering side was super helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. The dishes were made gluten free with no issue and were delicious.
Our day was just everything we had dreamed of and more - the photos are breathtaking. I can’t thank Paola enough for pulling together the day of my dreams and being so friendly and helpful along the way.
If you’re thinking of holding your wedding here it’ll be the best choice you’ve made. It was a fairytale day
Timeless, beautiful venue
The best day ever!
A BIG mistake that we deeply regret
Although it was the first thing I had asked when we arrived, sadly the heating wasn't actually turned off in every room and the result of this was that the blue room was horribly hot during the ceremony and by 8.30pm when dancing began in that same room it was a complete sauna, guests were dripping in sweat as were we. We physically could not dance in there. It was roasting and you're not allowed to open the windows, after a certain time in the evening (around 7-8pm) they close the shutters. Nobody was on hand to help turn it off and by this time it was far too late to cool the room down with all that heat and all those people. In stark contrast the marquee was freezing with no heating and our guests kept leaving the dinner to warm up inside, I was so embarrassed afterwards when friends told us they were all freezing cold as people never forget these things and their memory of our wedding will be this. It’s also worth noting that security is placed at the front door in the evening and it is locked so you and your guests have to leave your wedding from a side entrance. None of this was explained to us before we booked. Neither was the fact that you cannot have music and dancing in the marquee and everyone must come inside by 9pm, the music inside also cannot go over a specific decibel amount either. This wasn't explained when we took the tour and we only found this out once we had given over the deposit. Whilst our guests tried to enjoy canapés and socialising ***** stood by the front door making sure it was shut every time anyone went in or out. We are still in a pandemic, we needed fresh air. I think the main concern was not letting any noise of people talking reach outside? it's very strange as there are no neighbours for quite some distance, I understand this is probably a requirement for them but people need to know this before choosing to have one of the most important days of their life here. Another staff member ******** was around for part of the day and we thought this was to help coordinate things but it seemed more like supervision and checking what was going on. We were made to feel totally unwelcome and our guests noted that the staff at the venue were not polite and were more interested in policing the event rather than making sure everyone was accommodated and happy. It was very embarrassing to hear this from our friends and family who should have enjoyed themselves.
***** allowed us to hire the venue on a dry hire basis and bring our own drinks (which I think they do not normally do and her partner was not actually very happy about) but at one point ******** started to shout at our guests that they weren't allowed to pour drinks, but this is what we had agreed with the venue, the message was not passed on to the staff working that day and this caused a huge misunderstanding between some of the guests and my father, all this was going on as we tried to enjoy our wedding day. After a while no staff were visible for help apart from the security at the front door and he was the only person who was helpful and friendly the entire day. Another massive disappointment was that we were told we could use the fireplace, it was sold as the guests can come inside and be cosy and have the fireplace on but when we asked to put it on we were told maintenance hadn’t been done on it so it could not be used. Just awfully disappointing. Another important thing to note, not necessarily negative but good to know - the venue is very bitty. You cannot have your dinner in the same room as your dancing etc, the dinner is in the marquee and dancing is only allowed inside the actual building. It’s not really fit for purpose as a wedding venue because of the noise restrictions in my humble opinion and this should be made very apparent when booking. We had about 100 guests and it felt like way too much for inside the actual house, even though they say it has capacity for 120. The ceremony room cannot fit more than around 60 people (comfortably) in my opinion, even though they say 100 can fit, we had around 80 and it was too crowded. We were glad when it was over which is a terrible thing to say about your own wedding. If we could do it all again some other place, we 100% would.
