Last update: March 2024

The Lawn is a stately home in Rochford, Essex, that hosts wedding festivities. Set on three acres of beautifully manicured gardens in the heart of the Essex countryside, this is a truly enchanting wedding venue. Surrounded by over 100 acres of stunning private parkland, this property is exclusively yours, allowing you to celebrate in the style and seclusion you deserve.

Facilities and Capacity

With a license to host your civil ceremony in the galleried Grand Hall, The Lawn boasts the ability to host your entire day. With its gracious sweeping staircase only adding to the sense of occasion, the Grand Hall is the perfect setting for one of the most special moments of your life. This gives to-be-weds a breathtaking entrance to the ceremony and an unbelievable photo opportunity.

Alternatively, you could enjoy a true English country garden wedding in the gorgeous gazebo. Nestled away in the gardens, its backdrop boasts unspoilt views across the romantic Rose Garden – a truly iconic setting for your special day.

The glorious Orangery is the perfect place to host your wedding breakfast, lovingly prepared in its own kitchens by an in-house team of hugely talented chefs. Seamlessly and sympathetically blended with the Georgian architecture of the main house, it is a gorgeous, light-flooded space with dramatic garden views and full air-conditioning.

The Orangery opens out onto the expansive covered terrace, where you will find the Summer Terrace Bar. You may party the night away on the dance floor, in the main bar, and in the Grand Hall. If it all gets a bit too much, rest your weary feet in a comfy armchair in the Blue Drawing Room. All these areas connect and are centred on the Grand Hall, so your party flows beautifully with everything working together seamlessly through to your big send-off at midnight.

Services Offered

Throughout the planning process, the staff of The Lawn will be by your side. On the day, these professionals will be there to welcome you in the morning and see you to the two lovely, large get-ready rooms where you can prepare and relax.

Once the celebrations have drawn to a close, you and your guests can retire to the nearby four-star hotel with which this venue has an excellent relationship. Just five minutes away, it is the perfect place to unwind. Additional services from this venue's staff include exclusive use for the day, with total privacy and the full attention of the staff. Additionally, weddings benefit from a renowned catering service, with choices ranging from a buffet to a banquet.

The BEST Wedding Venue🤍

I cannot express the gratitude I have for The Lawn. We had our day on the 25th May 2024 and from start to finish the staff were amazing.

The food was stunning! The venue itself is absolutely breathtaking. Thank you so much for making our day what it was… perfect. I could not recommend this venue enough.

The perfect venue choice!

Where to start? From beginning to end, The Lawn were the perfect venue choice! Not just because of the stunning house and gardens, but because David and the team made every step as stress-free and enjoyable as possible (even with all the questions we kept pinging them). We knew before we visited that The Lawn was the venue for us, to the point we booked then and there! We had absolutely no worries leading up to the day about how things were going to run and throughout the day there was always someone on hand (and with a smile). Honestly, words cannot express how wonderful our day was - utterly perfect! Thank you for everything!

Best Day Ever

Where do I start, we cannot thank you enough for hosting our wedding on Saturday. Your staff were fantastic and the whole day could not have gone any better.
I always knew I wanted to get married at the lawn as my own parents married here 24 years ago, I was 12 years old. 4 years later Matt and I got together and finally after 20 years we had our own special day at the lawn.

Everything from the planning beforehand, adapting the menus so everyone could eat the same including anyone with dietary requirements to how everything kept to schedule.
I was an emotional wreck most of the morning getting ready but you made sure I did not have to worry about anything downstairs and when I finally got to see everything I was blown away.

A special thank you to David, Michael and Lizzie. You are brilliant at what you do.

The caterers and waiting staff were amazing. The food came out all at the same time, was hot and extremely tasty. The staff serving were so kind and accommodating.

This day was long overdue but we were lucky our children got to share it with us like I got to with my parents and you all made it the best day which we will never ever forget. My parents said the high standards you set on Saturday was exactly the same when they got married and it really is the best place to get married so anyone looking for a place to have their wedding and reception book in quick you will not be disappointed.

Thank you again
Jade and Matthew.

A special place to make memories at The Lawn!

We're thankful to David, Mandy, Michael, Katrina, Debbie and all the staff at The Lawn for all their hard work, patience and understanding in accommodating us for our special day.
We are thrilled with how everything went and so are especially pleased for having chosen The Lawn.
The entrance is a delight with ducklings and horses as you enter the grounds which were beautifully kept; the cuisine was delicious and fantastically presented; Michael was excellent in his communication to keeping timings going along; Mandy was extremely helpful at key times; David was reassuring with the music and their waiting and bar staff were wonderful too.
Not only on the day, but the preparations from the very first visit and the number of adjustments with Mandy, our special requests with Michael and all the invoicing and calls with Katrina and David too, we never felt that anything was too much trouble. This along with everything else means that The Lawn is a special place and always will be for us as well as many others - arrange a visit and you will see!

Incredible day

The whole team at The Lawn were incredible while we were planning our wedding and on the day itself. Everything went to smoothly - they were seamless. Everything happened exactly as we’d planned and everyone was friendly and welcoming the entire day. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

A Perfect Day at the Lawn!

My now husband and I fell in love with the Lawn as soon as we arrived at our venue viewing - we knew it was where we wanted to marry. It's in a lovely location, a quiet pocket of Rochford and it has a beautiful gazebo for an outdoor wedding. We were so fortunate with the weather and had the most perfect August day. The service and food was impeccable, the Lawn worked so hard in the leadup and on the day to make sure everything went smoothly. A particular shout out to David especially, who dealt with my many questions with such professionalism and willingness. Also thanks to the maintenance manager Andy, who assisted my bridal party with some odd jobs with the setup and was such a friendly and calming presence (exactly what we needed on the wedding morning!).
Our wedding day could not have gone more smoothly and we have no regrets at all with having chosen the Lawn. Even now, we get comments from so many friends and family saying what a beautiful location it was and how much there was to see and explore. A highly recommended venue! Thank you, David and team!

Stunning venue with amazing staff

Simply perfect. They know what they are doing and clearly love what they do. Attention to detail is impeccable, down to simple things such as matching ties to our theme (disney). Helped make our day go perfectly 🥰

Twilight Wedding in October

Such a beautiful venue. Could not think of anywhere more beautiful to get married. The staff at The Lawn were always so professional and helpful from the planning process and throughout the day. I was allowed to arrive at any time on the day and was made to feel very welcome. The actual service, smooth running of events (all excellently managed by the staff) and fantastic catering really ensured we had an unforgettable wedding. Thoroughly recommend!!

Amazing venue

Friendly and helpful in all areas. Went above and beyond to enable our special day to go smoothly at all times.
Use of bridal suite was amazing. We was all relaxed and chilled. Our guests highly praised the "Wedding breakfast". It was delicious. The Lawn is spectacular and the gardens are beautiful.

September 2023 Wedding

We were married in September 2023 and had our reception at the lawn. As it was an African-British wedding, we had many requests which the team at the Lawn really helped with. As we had exclusive use, the bridal party could get dressed at the Lawn before heading to Church and the parking was great for our guests travelling from long distances. Guests loved the horses and grounds. They particularly commented on being well catered for. It was a perfect day!

Amazing and caring team with a beautiful venue

The team at The Lawn helped us to host the perfect wedding. The amount of effort, thought and care that went into supporting us and everything we needed to make the day a success is amazing, this is possibly the first family event we’ve hosted where we have not felt the need to stress over a severe anaphylactic reaction.

From the minute we met we both felt at ease and confident our day would run smoothly, no question or request was too large.
They went above and beyond for us and it was truly appreciated, everyone has commented on the beauty of the venue as well as how smoothly and effortless the day ran.

We would honestly recommend the lawn for anyone looking for a venue to host a celebration - the venue is beautiful and the staff are absolutely amazing.

Beautiful Twilight

We would just like to say a massive thank you for making our twilight
wedding such a magical experience for both of us.

From your patience in answering all our questions leading up to the day to
your almost fanatical weather watching all afternoon (who knew there were so
many apps?! ) and then your ability to switch everything to outside at the
eleventh hour to ensure we could have the service in your beautiful gazebo
just made the perfect start to an amazing evening and the start of our
married life.

Thank you again so much and we send our warmest wishes to you all
