Large Weddings at Fennes

A high-capacity wedding venue in Essex

Fennes is an elegant manor house set in the heart of the North Essex countryside, ideal for large weddings up to 700 guests.

Beautiful well-appointed rooms are available for use by the wedding party, a traditional Library and intimate Drawing Room. The main ceremony can be held in our stunning silk-lined Banqueting Hall or Pavilion, or, on a fine day, outdoors in the gorgeous Gazebo. The wedding party can also make use of our spacious dressing rooms for preparations, ahead of the ceremony.

Close friends and family can enjoy an overnight stay in the 13 individually designed guest rooms, whilst the newlyweds have the luxurious honeymoon cottage. Additional guests will easily find accommodation nearby, as Fennes is just 10 minutes drive from Braintree.

Fennes Finishing Touches make your wedding extra special – Pimm’s, Cocktails or Hot Chocolate Cart, DJ, emergency Flip Flops to name just a few.

Whatever you dream of for your large wedding, at Fennes your personal Wedding and Events Manager will help make it a reality.


Everyone probably says it but our wedding day was the best day to date.

We believe that was down to us choosing an amazing venue. You were so informative and always on hand to help. You kept me calm and i can’t thank you enough! I wish i could do it all again!
