About Prested Hall

Located in a stunning rural setting, Prested Hall is the perfect country venue for your wedding celebrations in Essex. The Colchester-based venue, hidden down a long leafy drive, is nestled within 75 acres of charming parkland. Prested Hall has been recognised with a number of awards and accolades, including the “Boutique Wedding Venue of the Year” in the Essex Wedding Awards.

The part-moated 15th-century manor house is a truly romantic setting for your wedding. The beautiful and tranquil surroundings of mature trees and a bridge, which leads over the moat to the fields beyond, create a delightful backdrop for your special day. You can make the most of the stunning setting by taking memorable pictures in the charming gazebo at the end of the bridge.

When you choose Prested Hall, you will enjoy exclusive use of the Hall and its' 14 charming bedrooms, allowing you and up to 33 guests to stay overnight. The Dingle, a former chapel nestled near the orchard, provides an alternative tranquil bridal suite for the newlyweds. You and your guests can also enjoy a leisurely breakfast the following morning.

In addition to our brand new, waterside marquee, there are three handsome and elegant reception areas for your event: The Oak Room, The Garden Room and the large Orangery. The 18th-century Oak Room features a magnificent fireplace and exquisite stained-glass windows, while the Garden Room was formerly a 1930’s ballroom. The elegant Orangery overlooks the moat and is perfect in the summer. All three spaces, as well as the outdoor gazebo, are licensed to hold civil ceremonies.

Prested Hall has a great reputation for its' caring, considerate staff, excellent food and relaxed atmosphere. It is the perfect place to begin your married life together.

    Second To None

    My daughter held her wedding at Prested Hall last Saturday and I can't praise the staff and venue enough.

    The organisation was second to none and everything was completely seamless on the day.

    Guests were totally unaware when all the equipment was being delivered for the evening reception, despite this being done whilst the wedding breakfast was taking place. The staff helped us to set up our table decorations and even improved on our ideas.

    The meals were huge portions, piping hot and absolutely delicious. I was a little worried that we had decided on the vegan Panna Cotta as one of our dessert choices, as it's a difficult option to make vegan, but it was amazing.

    After the speeches, all our guests were ushered into the lounge, bar and library areas for tea and coffee and the staff moved all the tables ready for the evening reception and the DJ set up the dance floor for the disco in the Orangery, whilst at the same time the evening buffet table, sweet table and magic selfie mirror were all set up in the Oak Room. Again, all this was done behind the scenes and guests were totally unaware of this going on. The staff even moved some of our table decorations into the Oak Room to make sure everything looked amazing.

    The evening buffet was freshly prepared and there was more than enough to go round. After the traditional cutting of the cake, the three different cakes were cut and portions laid out beautifully on a separate table, each in its own serviette.

    Our wedding co-ordinator at Prested Hall, Emily, guided us through absolutely everything and her efficiency made for a perfect day!

    Absolutely perfect in every way

    Our daughter's wedding here was a 'Twilight Ceremony and Reception' at Prested Hall for around 90 guests and we also booked all their accommodation for the wedding party.

    The Groom's family and some friends travelled from the US and honestly, Emily and her team at Prested couldn't have done enough for us all.

    Absolutely perfect in every way - the buffet was amazing and the rooms quaintly perfect.

    A superb 'morning after' buffet breakfast in the orangery for the guests that stayed. Cannot praise it enough.

    If you are thinking of booking an occasion here -don't hesitate.

    Such a magical day

    Our wedding day was such a magical day, thanks to Prested Hall Hotel.

    My wife and I feel like we are only now getting back to normality since getting wed a month ago at Prested Hall.

    What a crazy journey, but so much fun and our wedding day was such a magical day.

    Leanne Walsh (Events Manager) and her team deserve all our praise for making our wedding such a wonderful event.

    Their help and support from when we first approached them to be our wedding venue, all the way through the build up, the wedding day itself and on departure, the following day after breakfast - they were absolutely marvellous.

    From helping guests on the day and guiding my wife and I through the wedding, Leanne and her team were brilliant and we couldn't have asked for a better venue, a better team or a better day.

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Love Mr & Mrs Scott
