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.

Testimonials

Tania and Christopher Blackburn – 9 February 2019

The most amazing day of our lives was here on the 9th February 2019.  From the moment we walked in for a look around, we just knew this was where we wanted to get married.

We did not have much time to prepare and I didn't think we could pull it off but everyone who works at The Lawn is so helpful and nothing was too much for them.

All our guests commented about the most wonderful food and drink, the recommended DJ and well, just absolutely everything.
