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 seven 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.

We got Married here on the 12th August and I can honestly say we couldn’t have wished for a better day! The venue is absolutely beautiful and has the wow factor! The staff were amazing and everything was completely stress free! We were never rushed and the day just flowed! We can’t thank you enough Leez Priory for making our special day even more special than we could ever have imagined!

Bride & Groom - Amanda & Vince

We had the best day of our lives on Sunday 23rd May.

Ours was the first post lockdown wedding held at Leez Priory. The staff were fantastic, the catering was brilliant and everything ran like clockwork.

Can’t recommend this beautiful venue enough.

Mother of the Bride - Jo

What a great venue! My daughter had her wedding here a couple weeks ago and the staff especially Sue and Sunita were exceptional. So helpful and flexible especially as we had a segregated wedding and it was not the norm for them. Thank you so much! The venue is so beautiful and speaks for itself. Perfect place for a dream wedding. Highly recommend
