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'...

My husband and I married at The Lawn on 24 August 2017 and we truly had the most perfect day.  We want to thank the whole team who contributed to the smooth running of the day - it was absolutely seamless!  Everything went according to plan and we cannot thank The Lawn enough for their professionalism and exceptional management.  A special thanks to Andrew and Amanda who were there to help us with anything we needed on the day and to Mandy and the

Carol and Martin Hill – married 16 September 2017

Wow, wow, wow - what can I say - my husband and I got married here on the 16th of September this year. It was and will be the most memorable day of our lives, the day was perfect from start to finish. The venue is so romantic and perfect for all.

Everyone of our guests said how great the day was and how the food was exceptional -with a few even commenting it was one of the

Lorraine Potkin – Bride’s sister married 20 August 2017

I just wanted to drop you a message to say a very big thank you for all you did last Sunday at my big sister's wedding.  It took us all week to stop buzzing for such an amazing day and it was largely down to you all.  The staff, every one, were amazing.  The venue, just beautiful.  Everything was organised perfectly (is it wrong I enjoyed it more than my own wedding?!).  We loved every minute and it was a long time planning, so a massive thank you

Tracey and John Brunton – Married 20 August 2017

I would just like to thank you all at The Lawn for helping us have the most amazing day.  Everything ran like clock work!  Food was amazing and staff were fantastic!  Thank you so much!  Best venue ever! And so many of our guests said it was the best wedding they've ever been to!

Angela and Denzil Slade (Groom’s parents) – 25 August 2017

I just wanted to say a very big thank you to you and the rest of the staff at The Lawn for all you did to make Geoff and Lisa's wedding day such a wonderful occasion last Friday 25 August 2017. You all worked so hard to make everything run smoothly. Everyone was so polite and discreet and made it easy for us all to relax, knowing that we could trust you to run it in such a professional manner. (And also with such good humour, which can't have been

Elizabeth and Dwaine Lewis – Married 29 July 2017

Thank you so much for looking after us so well during our wedding reception on 29 July 2017.  We knew that everything would run as clockwork as soon as we arrived at your stunning venue.  The Orangery was set up so beautifully and we did not have to concern ourselves with anything.  If Mother Nature had behaved, it would have been perfect!  Still, rain is supposed to bring luck on your wedding day!  Many thanks

Sandra and Martin King – 16 August 2017

On behalf of Martin and myself Sandra ... What a fantastic day on Wednesday 16 August we had ... all of the catering and waiting staff worked so hard along with Mandy, who looked after everything to do with the wedding.  Thank you all so very much, you made our day perfect.

Sue and Roger Copeman – Golden Wedding Celebration on 30 July 2017

Thank you for helping to make our Golden Wedding Celebration such a success.

It was enjoyed by one and all and we would happily recommend it to anyone else.

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

2017 at The Lawn

2017 has been (and continues to be!) by far our busiest year in 25 years of trading. We are so grateful to all those fabulous couples who chose our lovely venue for their Big Day and to all those who have celebrated other special occasions with us this year.

The only downside is that we have been too busy and pre-occupied to keep up with Facebook posting but we will try to publish a few pics of this Summer asap.

We are also hugely appreciative for all the lovely reviews we have had from our generous clients - over 20 5* reviews from this Summer alone. They all mean so much to all the Team at The Lawn so thank you, thank you, thank you!

This is the latest one just received from the fantastic Carol & Martin who tied the knot here last Saturday:

"Wow wow wow what can I say my husband and I got married here on the 16th of September this year. It was and will be the most memorable day of our lives, the day was perfect from start to finish. The venue is so romantic and perfect for all. The food by Mussel Ltd was superb as were the chair decorations by Exquisite. Every one of our guests said how great the day was and how the food was exceptional with a few even commenting it was one of the best weddings they have been too. Andrew, Amanda and Mandy thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Xxxxxx"

We wish Carol & Martin every possible happiness for their long future together.
