Countryside Weddings at Fennes

A stunning manor house in the heart of Essex

Set in the beautiful North Essex countryside, Fennes is the perfect venue for an idyllic countryside wedding.

This charming manor house was a family home for over 400 years, before becoming a dedicated venue in 1995. Set in 100 acres of rolling Essex countryside, just 10 minutes outside of Braintree, our picturesque English country gardens offer endless opportunities for stunning photography, while our gorgeous Gazebo is available for an outdoor ceremony, weather permitting.

Fennes has an array of well-appointed, traditionally styled rooms available for use throughout your wedding. The drawing room with its roaring log fire is perfect for intimate ceremonies, whilst the reading room offers a quieter bar area in one of the oldest parts of the house. The function rooms all come with access to the gardens or views across the countryside, ensuring that your countryside feel stays throughout the day.

Once the evening is over, the newlyweds can enjoy a night in the private honeymoon cottage complete with a lavish Jacuzzi bath to help unwind. Close friends and family can also stay overnight, with 13 guest bedrooms available in the main house.

Let Fennes host your countryside wedding, for a day to remember.


Our Wedding and Events Manager was simply amazing! They made our day perfect and you were on hand anytime we needed them. With our photographer turning up late you calmed me down and gave the best support on our special day.

Having our wedding at Fennes was more amazing then we could ever dreamed of.

Mr and Mrs Hoadley – 12th August 2016
