Wedding Ceremony
Venue Service

By Debbie Page, on 25 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Jun 2019

We held our wedding ceremony in the Essex Hall at Clacton Town Hall (Princes Theatre) on the 8th June 2019. We had the most wonderful day and the staff were extremely helpful and made the day run very smoothly especially Melissa (General manager – Weddings and Events) she was always on hand to help with every little detail, all very professional. The venue looked lovely just as I wanted I would highly recommend getting wed at the town hall. The only thing that we couldn’t get any help with was the weather! Overall we were so happy and would love to do it all again!

A massive thank you to Melissa and the Theatre team who made our wedding so special! We highly recommend this venue for anyone who’s looking for something different to the usual. The theatre lighting makes it magical and Melissa made everything run so smoothly. Our guests had a fabulous time and we received lots of positive comments about how the theatre was such a great venue to get married in, we couldn’t have chosen a better place! Thank you

Mr & Mrs Gibbons - perfect day!!!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Gibbons, on 26 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Feb 2018

We had our wedding at the Princes Theatre on 15th February 2018. Everything went perfectly, both myself and my husband (not used to saying it yet) could not fault the whole team, from Bar staff to Tech guys, especially Melissa who has been brilliant since before we booked the venue, great customer service and always on hand to help (even on her days off), and on the day granted our every request (even if we were Bridezilla and Groomzilla), she made herself known to all the "important" guests should they need help in their duties. A lot of the guests complimented the team and all on their hard work. So well done and I had no doubts that would be the case.

Victoria is an absolute angel and miracle worker and made our wedding the best day it could ever have been. She went above and beyond the call of duty and made me feel so at ease in the planning and on the day. The venue is beautiful and the staff are amazing. For anyone thinking of getting married here, do it! You will not be disappointed. We love you, Vicky and couldn't have done it without you. xx
