Fennes is an idyllic setting for the perfect Greek wedding. Our Mansion house and gardens are a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Set in 100 acres of Essex countryside, Fennes offers you extensive grounds, creating amazing photo opportunities with stunning views - perfect for a Greek wedding.
Exquisite décor and architecture within the house gives the atmosphere of a luxurious family abode rather than a stately home, with personal touches of modern art alongside antique furniture. Within the manor house, there are four reception rooms. Fennes can accommodate larger events, holding up to 400 guests in our silk-lined Banqueting Hall which is attached to the rear of the house, and beautifully decorated with silk linings, chandeliers and a state-of-the-art starlight celling.
Our dedicated team will be happy to help advise you on timings, usage of rooms and layouts for your Greek wedding venue.
Planning your Greek Orthodox Wedding
Setting the date
There are a number of days when it is forbidden to get married, including the fasting period 40 days prior to Easter and the 40 days prior to Christmas for the same reason. The first 15 days of August, a period dedicated to celebrating the Virgin Mary, are also out of bounds. It’s best to consult your local church as there are additional days on which marriage would be inappropriate.
Marriage can take place at virtually any time of the day, in accordance with the requirements of the priest. The only time that you can’t get married is during Sunday Mass.
We do allow the use of other outside caterers, or we can caterer in house for your wedding day.
We have seven luxury guest double/twin suites available for hire plus our magnificent Bridal Cottage. There is also a bridal changing suite included in the venue fee, and rooms can be used on a day-hire basis for changing.
