Step into the atmosphere of an historic country home that exudes taste, warmth and comfort and which is one of the most sought after wedding venues in Essex. The Lawn is an elegant Georgian manor house licensed for civil ceremonies, set in 3 acres of landscaped and beautifully kept gardens, surrounded by over 100 acres of rolling park and woodland. The entire venue is exclusively yours for your special day and provides the perfect setting for your photographs.

Included is your own large and delightful bride's room with french doors opening to the 60ft bride's balcony. Make a dramatic entrance down the sweeping staircase to the galleried grand hall for the civil ceremony. The bride's room is available to the bridal party from 9.30am through until midnight whether it is a church wedding or a civil ceremony.

From a small, intimate gathering to a wedding with up to 160 guests (130 seated for the wedding breakfast), enjoy an exceptional quality of service from our friendly, dedicated team. We are easily accessible by road, rail or air and offer ample, adjacent, free parking (including overnight). Contact Us to find out more.

The Lawn also benefits from two of its own Caravan Club of Great Britain Certified Locations.  These are pretty, well-tended rural sites with a total of 10 pitches and both are within 200 metres of the venue.  Perfect for Caravan Club of Great Britain members attending a wedding and perhaps wanting to stay a bit longer to make the most of this vibrant corner of the South East.  Call The Estate Office on 01702 203701 to book.


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!
