Venue Video

A wedding at Leez Priory comes with over 30 years' experience of creating wedding day dreams.

Nestled in the glorious Essex countryside, this Tudor manor house is exclusively yours and all just over an hour away from Central London.

A Stunning Manor House Wedding Venue in Essex

One of our two Essex wedding venues and three-times winner of Wedding Ideas Magazine’ Best Wedding Venue’, Leez Priory remains one of the most sought-after manor house wedding venues in the country. Set in 40 acres of parkland, with a sweeping driveway, manicured lawns and lakes, Leez Priory offers a picture-perfect backdrop for an exceptional day.

Ceremonies can be performed in any of eight licensed settings. Celebrate your day in the stunning historical Tower, which stands adjacent to the Main House. Or, for a truly unique environment, have an outdoor wedding ceremony, beneath the carriageway.

Fine dining is guaranteed, with a dedicated team of in-house chefs waiting to create your chosen culinary delights. Dine in the cosy Great Hall with its exposed beams and feature fireplace or, for larger parties, choose the rustic charm of the Coach House.

The newly transformed dance floor offers a more modern and contemporary space for those wishing to dance the night away. It is coupled with a contrasting traditional bar and lounge area available for those who want to chat and enjoy a quieter setting.

Leez Priory, a large, yet intimate wedding venue, also boasts 25 beautiful bedrooms including 3 lodges in the grounds; exclusively reserved for you on your wedding night. There’s also a delightful hidden cottage where the bride and bridesmaids can stay the night before the big day.
