Welcome to Little Easton Manor, a grade II listed building offering a stunning environment to host your wedding day in Essex. The estate has new owners after 47 years in the same family and has been lovingly refurbished and renovated. Work has included re-routing the manor's entrance so that every guest arrives through impressive wrought iron fully automatic gates to fully appreciate the manor's elegance, beauty and style.
The venue is centrally set within beautiful grounds boasting formal gardens and historic lakes, so you can be assured that there will be plenty of opportunities to create special memories and fantastic wedding photographs.
When booking with Little Easton Manor you have the flexibility to host a small and intimate event or larger celebration with the possibility of a marquee if your numbers swell.
THE BARN THEATRE
If you want to be centre stage in style and enjoy the red-carpet treatment, the Barn Theatre with its stage licensed for civil ceremonies is the perfect backdrop as you begin the performance of your life. There’s no need to learn your lines as the registrars will prompt your every step on your way to becoming Mr. & Mrs. Your photographer and guests will need to have their cameras poised ready for action as they will be your official paparazzi for the day. Set the scene with beauty and glamour, rustic vintage elegance, contemporary chic – the possibilities are endless but the choice is yours. Your wedding needn’t be a drama (unless you want it to be!) “It’s show time d’ahling!”
Hall of Fame
The bespoke theatre, originally built for a family’s personal amusement and entertainment, was converted from one of the oldest and finest tithe barns in the country, to an intimate performance venue with the addition of gas lighting and a stage by Lady Warwick in 1913. Playing host to many theatrical performances and events through the years in which the great and the good of the acting world flocked to perform, the Barn Theatre boasts visits from high society, headline acts and literary greats enjoying technicolour events.
Lady Warwick, a keen cyclist and notable beauty, was known as “my darling Daisy” by her admirers (including The Prince of Wales, later Edward VII, with whom she shared a nine-year affair), and was the inspiration for the popular music hall song “Daisy Bell, Bicycle Made for Two”.
Little Easton Manor and its glorious grounds have also featured in many films and TV productions including an Edgar Wallace thriller and ‘Midshipman Easy’, The Fear, Lovejoy and EastEnders.
THE TURKEY BARN
The Turkey Barn (which adjoins the Barn Theatre) is licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 70 guests and can be used in conjunction with the theatre or stand alone. Smaller and more intimate than the theatre, the Turkey Barn boasts exposed beams and, due to its neutral colour scheme, can be dressed to impress in your personal style.
