The most sought after of wedding venues in Essex and perfect for all types of special occasions and conferences

Weddings & Wedding Receptions

As a wedding venue, The Lawn is special. Our wedding parties enjoy exclusive use of the venue, including the spacious Bride’s Room, from 9.30 in the morning through to midnight.

With its magnificent manor house and beautiful grounds combined with the unparalleled (yet not over-bearing) levels of service enjoyed by all our clients and their guests, The Lawn has earned a reputation for excellence that is second to no other wedding venue in Essex.

As a Family run business, we have worked hard and invested heavily in making The Lawn one of the very best wedding venues in Essex. Whether you prefer to have a civil ceremony in the comfortable splendour of the manor house itself, or marry in a church and enjoy your wedding reception and ‘after-party’ at The Lawn, we ensure that you have a wedding day to remember – for all the right reasons!

Your wedding day is special and we appreciate that every wedding is unique. We are not pushy and do not promote nor try to apply wedding packages but rather prefer to tailor the requirements to our clients’ own particular needs – all at a price that virtually everyone finds surprisingly affordable (usually less than most 'packages'!) with a clear and stated policy of 'no hidden extras.'

Kelly Coughlin – 22 July 2017

I'm still on such a wedding high after getting married here 2 weeks yesterday!  It is hard to find the words ... but THANK YOU seems the most appropriate!  From viewing and booking the venue in December 2015, all the way through to tying the knot, you made us feel so welcome and always treated us like people, like friends in fact, rather than just "business" - we really appreciated that.

The grounds and House looked stunning.  Amanda Penny, David

Mr. and Mrs. Robert Maeer – Mother and Father of the Groom on 5 August 2017

My son Darren Maeer got married to his beautiful fiancée Corinne Glover on Saturday 5 August 2017 at your establishment.  I would like to take this opportunity to tell you that we were extremely pleased with every aspect of the day.  Your staff were extremely attentive and polite and nothing was too much trouble.  The wedding breakfast was extremely well presented and cooked to perfection.  The evening buffet was again presented well and of good quality.


Gemma Flicker – Wedding of 31 July 2017

Jan Turner – testimonial of 1 August 2017

In September 2010 our daughter was married at The Lawn and it was an amazing day.  We attended a reception at The Lawn on Saturday and I would just like to say that it was another amazing day all round.

Your staff were excellent, very efficient and polite, food and venue superb.  I am sure that your attention to detail really helped the bridal party to relax and enjoy the day.  A big thank you for maintaining such a high standard of excellence

Linda and John Keeling – 29 June 2017

Just a quick note to express our thanks for the wonderful day we had at The Lawn on June 29th.  The whole day went like clockwork and the feedback from our guests was glowing!  The children all had a marvellous time too.

John and I had a great day and one of my abiding memories will be of you putting the dowels in the wedding cake - for which I was so grateful - but highly amused at the time!  Sincere thanks.

We married at The Lawn on 22 June and I cannot thank the entire team and venue enough!  It was perfect!  Nothing was too much trouble and the day ran like clockwork!  Everyone commented on how lovely the house and grounds were and we were so happy!  Also the food (Mussel Ltd - the Lawn caterers) was absolutely delicious!  I think at some point in the day I had most guests comment on how lovely it was with a lot saying the best wedding food they had

Congratulations to our daughter Miranda and son in law Anthony on their wedding on 3 June 2017.  What a fantastic day at an amazing venue!  We cannot thank the staff and associated staff for all their help and attentiveness before, during and after the day.  It was simplicity itself with all the ideas and suggestions shared from the Lawn - from the largest task to the smallest detail, everything was par for the course.  They shared every experience,
