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 and the solemnisation of same-sex marriages, 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 are two large and delightful rooms, one with a 60ft balcony, where you can change and relax before making a dramatic entrance down the sweeping staircase to the galleried Grand Hall for the ceremony. The rooms are available to the wedding party from 9.30am until midnight, whether it is a Church Wedding or 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.
