I want to say a massive thank you to all the staff at The Lawn that made our wedding day beyond amazing! It was literally like a dream. Thank you for all the hard work and effort you put in to setting up the venue inside - every detail was noticed. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect day and was made even more special by the beautiful venue! Such nice staff and made my every wish come true with the vision I had for everything.

Cannot recommend The Lawn enough. We had our special day on Monday and it was truly the most perfect day! They couldn't have been more helpful from the minute we viewed the venue to the day after packing up. They have the running of the day down to perfection so that there are no worries. Was a complete stress free day enjoyed by everyone. The grounds are truly stunning! Thank you so much for making our day amazing.

Thank you for an amazing day

Thank you everyone at The Lawn for an amazing day! Everything was perfect, the staff on the day were brilliant and helpful at all times, our guests were wowed with the food! The package we got included seat covers and DJ! Both were brilliant and a lovely touch to the wedding booking - don't think we could have organised better ourselves. We were initially under the impression that we wouldn't get help setting up on the day, but we did and it was a massive help. Your waiting staff did a great job at keeping the guests happy, the buffet was complimented by everyone. The service was just amazing, would definitely recommend anyone to use your venue. It was such a beautiful memorable day. Thank you so, so much from my Husband and I!

To all of the staff at The Lawn Thank you so much for making our wedding Saturday 14th July 2018, the best day of our lives & as stress free as possible. Thank you for being so understanding with having to postpone the date & not charging us a fee, also with the last minute changes with the guest list & for the cheque refund we received. Everything was as perfect as could be, brilliant staff throughout the day & planning, especially Debra, fantastic venue, food & drink, even the weather was lovely & all the guests were very impressed, some even said it was the best wedding they had been to! Very Highly recommended, it’s no wonder you are one of the best wedding venues in Essex & I especially like it is exclusively yours for the day & this venue was my dear mum’s choice god rest her sweet soul. Warmest regards Mr & Mrs Green
