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.'

Venue for Special Occasions

The same ingredients that create a fantastic wedding venue, combine to make The Lawn the ideal venue in Essex for Christenings, Anniversaries, Wakes, Social Lunches / Dinners and all manner of other Celebrations. The Lawn makes the perfect party venue.

With the addition of our stunning air-conditioned Orangery in 2010, The Lawn not only provides a wonderful setting for weddings and parties, but also offers excellent and flexible facilities for seminars and conferences held in Essex. Whether it is a discreet, off-site location that is required for a dozen senior Executives or a fully catered conference / sales event or product launch for 150+ delegates, The Lawn is amongst the very best seminar and conference venues in Essex.

Special Occasions

The Lawn also hosts a range of its own Dinners and Parties including our renowned Gourmet Club dinners, fabulous Christmas Parties, a whisky and haggis fuelled Burns Night and of course, our legendary New Year’s Eve Ball. Many of these events sell out weeks and in some cases, many months, in advance so please book early to avoid disappointment. For more details see our social calendar.

At The Lawn, whether you are looking for a perfect country house wedding venue or to host another special occasion, we always put the customer first and strive constantly to keep our hard won reputation of being 'rather better'...


Peter and Sarah Marks – 21 May 2017

We were so lucky to get married here on Sunday 21/05/2017. The whole team made our day so special. You didn't even see them and yet they did so much. From taking the bouquets and putting them in vases to making sure drinks were flowing during the meal. They even went out of their way to get me a drink on special request. Every single guest said how lovely the venue is. Me and my new wife couldn't have been happier with how well the day went. Thank

Mel Jane – Mother of the Bride – Wedding 20 May 2017

Can I just second my daughter's testimonial (as Mother of the Bride!) I cannot praise you enough for all you did for Charlotte and Sam - both before the wedding and on the day itself.  It was just quite literally a perfect day.  Thank you so so much!

Claire and Adam Capps – 18 May 2017

We had our twilight wedding at the Lawn on the 18th May. It was absolutely perfect. Every part of our day was amazing. The staff at The Lawn were just brilliant, nothing we asked was too much trouble. I can honestly and happily say I have no complaints at all.
A beautiful day, a beautiful venue, an absolutely perfect and professional team and the best honey mustard cocktail sausages ever!
Thank you so much for making our day as wonderful as it was.

Samuel and Charlotte Day – 20 May 2017

Francesca Warwick – Guest at the Wedding on 1 May 2017

Beautiful venue, fantastic service, lovely food, reasonably priced bar.  I went to celebrate my friend's wedding and it was such a great day!  I really couldn't fault this venue!

Doug Pearce – Father of the Bride 1 May 2017

Thank you to all those at The Lawn.  My Daughter had her reception there and it was a great experience.  Everything went smoothly and the venue itself was lovely.

Charlie and Joe Gardiner-Graham – Married 17 March 2017

Myself and my husband got married here on Friday 17th March and could not have had a more perfect day.  The venue is by far the most beautiful setting we could have hoped for.  The staff were incredible and really knew what they were doing - there was not one part of the day that I felt stressed or didn't know what was going to happen next.  We were always informed and the organisation from the staff was fantastic.  We used Mussel Ltd (recommended

Cyril and Antoinette Thorpe – Event on 7 May 2017

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our day such a special occasion.

The Lawn looked magnificent, the food served to 78 people was hot and delicious, everyone commented and as you know it was an important part of our day.

We felt you all went above any expectations we had and could not have been more helpful.

The Gourmet dinner on 11 July is now booked - we look forward to seeing you then.

Sarah and Daniel Burry – Married 15 April 2017

Everything from start to finish was fantastic and your venue looked stunning.  All of our guests have said it was the best wedding they had been to.  Thank you all for making our day so special.

Pippa Middleton looked good but was nowhere near as elegant or as generally fabulous as the lovely Charlotte who celebrated her wedding to the dashing Samuel on Saturday!
Following a church wedding in Hockley, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed a drinks reception in The Lawn's beautiful gardens before dining in The Orangery and partying the night away back in the Club Room and Grand Hall. Unlike Pippa's wedding, we are pleased to confirm that our Orangery does not cost £100k to hire!
Pippa comparisons aside, Charlotte & Samuel really are a fantastic couple and we know that they will have an amazing life together. Best wishes from all at The Lawn!
