About

An Historic Barn Wedding Venue in the Heart of Essex

Set in 40 acres of parkland, with a sweeping driveway, manicured lawns and lakes, our stunning Tudor manor house and barn offer picture-perfect backdrops for a very special day. This venue is ideal for those couples that can't decide between the splendour of a country house or the rustic charm of a barn setting - at Leez Priory you can have both!

Ceremonies can be performed in any of 3 indoor settings and 4 outdoor settings, including the rustic coach house barn, the stunning historical Tower, or outside in the courtyard for a spectacular setting on warmer days.

Fine dining is guaranteed, with a dedicated team of in-house chefs that specialise in wedding day catering for large parties. Our couples have the choice of either dining in the Great Hall with its exposed beams and feature fireplace or, for larger parties, opt for the rustic allure of the Coach House which can seat up to 100.

Fro the evening time, the vaulted dance floor offers a more modern and contemporary space for those wishing to dance the night away, with a bar and lounge area next door for those who want to chat and enjoy a more relaxing affair.

Leez Priory also boasts 25 beautiful bedrooms, exclusively reserved for our couples and their guests on the wedding night, as well as the picturesque Fishermen's Cottage within the grounds - the perfect little hideaway for the Bride and her Bridesmaids to stay in the night before the big day.
