Wedding venues in Essex come in all shapes and sizes, and there is sure to be one to fit everyone’s particular taste and budget. Your wedding day may be the most important day of your life, but that doesn’t mean you cannot do it in some serious style, or even need to leave Essex to find your perfect wedding venue.

While a lot of couples will choose to go with a more traditional style of wedding venue and choose their local church for the service, followed by a local hotel that is large enough to accommodate their wedding reception, other couples will yearn to do something different and more memorable.

Lets take a look at some of the fully licensed wedding venues in Essex that offer something a little bit different with very romantic settings, as well as more classically styled places for you to tie the knot.

Leez Priory, Chelmsford
