Located in the picturesque Belchamp countryside, Smeetham Hall Barn dates back to the 16th century and has been transformed into one of the top wedding venues in Essex. Set against a stunning rural backdrop and within breathtaking gardens, complete with a willow bordered lake, this venue is sure to provide beautiful wedding photographs for you to treasure forever.
The Barn is fully licensed for civil ceremonies and it offers the perfect, country setting for making your vows followed by your wedding breakfast and evening celebrations. We offer either a package at amazing prices or, if you would like a little more flexibility with your menu, you may choose the ‘venue-only’ hire. You can then choose one caterer from our list of six.
We are also very happy for you to provide your own alcohol and soft drinks for the day, with a corkage charge from 2023. Our bar opens immediately after the wedding breakfast.
The Barn, for a Saturday wedding, is available to you from 9am on the Friday until midday on the Sunday.
The Barn has a large dancefloor with the bar close by!
Smeetham Hall Barn is a wonderful wedding venue for all seasons (the Barn and the marquee are heated to an ambient temperature) and can accommodate small, intimate weddings or more extravagant celebrations of up to 150 guests for the wedding breakfast.
While the venue boasts a truly stunning countryside location, there are excellent transport links making it easy to travel to and from London, Hertfordshire, Suffolk and Kent.
We understand how important your wedding day is and we are committed to doing everything we can to give you the day of your dreams.
