The Old Parish Rooms provide the perfect setting for your wedding celebrations. Originally built in 1863 as a parish hall and school house, the venue is now a bright and modern space, ideal for intimate wedding events. The venue is now licensed to perform civil ceremonies, making it a wonderful setting for your wedding, naming ceremony or vow renewal.
The Old Parish Rooms are set over two floors. The venue can cater for up to 80 guests for a seated wedding breakfast. For larger events and standing occasions, the space can be transformed into a dance floor to accommodate up to 100 guests.
The beautiful old school house provides a truly unique and unusual wedding venue. Although the venue embraces the character and charm of the grade II listed exteriors, the building’s delightful interiors are light and stylish. The versatile venue suits both sleek, modern weddings and traditional, vintage-themed celebrations.
While set within the grounds of the Holy Trinity Church, the Old Parish Rooms is also accessible from local Registry Offices and civil ceremony premises in Southend and Essex.

Perfect venue for a perfect day
We got married on 2nd September 2018 and the whole day was just amazing thank you to Stefan and his team. This is a fantastic venue for a small to medium wedding with an option to have ceremony in the same place, up in a beautiful mezzanine. Venue itself is designed boho/romantic so doesn't require much decor. Very bright, airy and different from the boring standard with chair covers and bows. Beautiful location in a small historical town of Rayliegh. As weddings executive I very much appreciated that service was like a clock and all members of the team were very attentive.Sent on 29/01/2019
