If you’re not too much of a traditionalist and like the idea of saying your vows surrounded by 100 acres of tranquil Essex countryside then a civil ceremony at Fennes may be exactly what you’re looking for.
Perhaps your fairytale wedding involves walking down the aisle on a warm summer’s day, surrounded by emerald lawns & gorgeous scenery as a gentle, cooling breeze wisps through your hair. Or, maybe an intimate ceremony in a cosier room of a Georgian Manor house surrounded by your closest family and friends as snow covers the ground appeals more to you.
We can decorate the room or area that you choose for your civil ceremony in whichever way you wish – from chair covers and sashes to red (or cream) carpets for the aisle.
Either way, our Exclusive-Use wedding venue can accommodate from 35 up to 350 guests for a civil ceremony in indoor or outdoor settings. If you’d like to hold your ceremony indoors, then you’ll have the choice of our Drawing Room, Banqueting Hall or Pavilion. The capacities for these rooms can be found below:
Drawing room – Up to 35 guests
Banqueting Hall – Up to 250 guests
Pavilion – Up to 350 guests
If you’d rather hold your wedding ceremony outside (which is extremely popular at Fennes in the summer months) we’re able to provide a fully licensed gazebo inside our beautifully landscaped grounds.
One thing is for sure – when you choose to hold your ceremony at Fennes, you’ll be saying ‘I do’ with a fairytale backdrop.
