The Place...

Set in 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, The Lawn is exclusively yours, allowing you to celebrate in the style and seclusion you deserve.


The Preparation...

Throughout the planning process, we are by your side and on the day, we are there to welcome you in the morning and see you to the two lovely, large bridal rooms where you can prepare and relax.


The Wedding...

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, giving the bride a breath-taking entrance to the ceremony and an unbelievable photo opportunity!

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


The Dining...

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


The Party...

Our Orangery opens out on to the expansive covered terrace, where you will find our Summer Terrace Bar.


Party the night away on the dance floor, in the main bar and the Grand Hall - or 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.

Once the celebrations have drawn to a close, you and your guests can retire to the nearby 4* hotel with which we have and excellent relationship and preferential rates. Just five minutes away, it is the perfect place to unwind.


• Gorgeous Georgian manor house set in acres of unspoilt, private parkland and landscaped gardens • Fully licensed to host your ceremony in our delightful Grand Hall • Exclusively yours for the day, with total privacy and the full attention of the staff • Renowned catering service, with choices ranging from a buffet to a banquet • Our brand new Orangery is a delightfully light-flooded space ideal for your reception • Bride and Groom private room facilities for the day

Thank you
Venue Service

By Mr. and Mrs. Virgo, on 27 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 02 Jan 2020

My husband and I … would like to thank all of our friends and families who joined us to celebrate our wedding. We were overwhelmed with the love and laughter we all shared yesterday. We wanted a small intimate day, that had a relaxed feel and for everyone to enjoy themselves, from the feedback we’ve had … we achieved this. Special shout out to the staff at The Lawn. Thank you.

A big thank you!

On behalf of myself and my wife, we would like to thank all of the staff at The Lawn. From the very first preparation meeting we have been supported throughout the process, excellent advice given, along with ideas on making our day special. We met with Andrew and spoke to Mandy and Rebecca, who I believe are all the events managers at The Lawn, professional throughout and understanding in little adjustments we wanted on the day, Andrew played a massive part in our day ensuring everything went smoothly. THANK YOU! To the day, myself and my wife were extremely impressed with the detail that went in to organising the venue, The Lawn staff agreed to put up the Christmas decorations early to accommodate my wife’s love of Christmas, they accommodated for guests with special requests such wheel chairs etc, the food was incredible, portions were neither too small or too large, cooked and very well presented. Table service by the waitresses was on point each serving with a smile and very professional and friendly manner. Finally our DJ ‘Neil Andrews’ Neil was outstanding and managed our requests throughout the event planning from lighting to song choices. Also managing our ever demanding guests with their music request! Neil you’re a credit to the DJing industry! Thank you!

Wow, what can I say ...

By Shirley and Geoffrey Stedman, on 25 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Oct 2019

Wow, what can I say … we got married here on 26 October, from booking the venue right up until the day everything went so smoothly! I was so worried, but I needn’t have been, all the staff are absolutely amazing! The day was everything we’d hoped it would be, although the weather wasn’t great, it didn’t detract from our perfect day! Everyone without exception commented on how fantastic the food was, all intolerances were taken into account without exception! The venue is wonderful, our photos with the backdrop of the rooms are fabulous, it was quite simply the best day ever! Thank you The Lawn, you made our wedding perfect.

Great day for us both

Myself and Kizzie had our wedding reception at The Lawn on Saturday 8 June. We would like to pass on our huge thanks for the work that was put in on the day and leading up to it! All the staff - from Management, Cooks, Waitresses and Cleaners - did an amazing job! It all went so smoothly and made the day so special for us. We are still getting messages from family and friends expressing their thoughts on how lovely The Lawn is! We would highly recommend you to anyone!

Twilight wedding was the best day ever!

We had our twilight wedding here just a couple days ago 29th may 2019, and it was just the best day ever! Such a beautiful place! All the staff were so helpful and professional, everyone commented on the hot buffet, it was absolutely delicious and it was refilled plenty of times! And the gardens are just beautiful. We really couldn’t fault this stunning venue and would definitely recommend to any bride and groom to be. Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special!! Geoff and Julie Keeley

Best wedding ever!
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Bradbury, on 19 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 25 May 2019

Chris and I married at The Lawn on 25th May 2019. I'm a little late with this review, but having just been on honeymoon I hope I am excused. Our wedding has been voted by all of our guests as the best wedding ever and to us it certainly was. We also received a multitude of comments about the venue itself and how spectacular it was. It was resplendent in the bright sunshine and seeing all our guests on the veranda and The Lawn itself after the ceremony was magical. The day ran like clockwork thanks to the dedication and hard work of the team of waiters, waitresses, the master of ceremonies and all the other people who put up with my incessant emailing and questions. No request was too big or small to be accommodated (we had numerous live musicians perform during the ceremony and all the sound checks and set ups were dealt with without any hassle). The food for the wedding breakfast was exceptional and they even managed to accommodate a flashmob between the main course and dessert! I would recommend the Lawn as a wedding venue to any bride and groom who have not yet settled on where to hold their celebrations. You certainly won't be disappointed.
