The perfect wedding
Thank you ever so much for the perfect wedding.  From the day we viewed The Lawn to the second we left, you and your staff were absolutely second to none.  We were made to feel welcome and very much at ease with no-one being rushed or pressured throughout the day.  The food was absolutely superb and was complimented by every single one of our guests. The service from yourself and all of your staff was magnificent.  Never once was anything too much or too little and the attention to detail just was perfect. Thanks again for making our day nothing less than perfect.  We couldn't have asked for a better day at all.

A highly recommended venue
My now husband and I fell in love with The Lawn as soon as we arrived at our venue viewing - we knew it was where we wanted to marry.  It's in a lovely location, a quiet pocket of Rochford and it has a beautiful gazebo for an outdoor wedding.  We were so fortunate with the weather and had the most perfect August day.  The service and food was impeccable, The Lawn worked so hard in the leadup and on the day to make sure everything went smoothly.  A particular shout out to David especially, who dealt with my many questions with such professionalism and willingness. Also thanks to the maintenance manager Andy, who assisted my bridal party with some odd jobs with the set up and was such a friendly and calming presence (exactly what we needed on the wedding morning!).  Our wedding day could not have gone more smoothly and we have no regrets at all with having chosen The Lawn.  Even now, we get comments from so many friends and family saying what a beautiful location it was and how much there was to see and explore.  A highly recommended venue!  Thank you David and team.

THANK YOU
We got married here on the 21.07.2022. We had a lot of bumps in the road to reaching a wedding and The Lawn supported us every step of the way. The evening was perfect and everyone in the team was accommodating and supportive (even when it came to food, decorations, guests, changing our ideas etc). We could not have wished for a better venue and a more beautiful wedding. Thanks so much for all your support and helping us make MR&MRS and a wedding we had always imagined.

Fantastic Venue
Fantastic venue, our wedding was amazing and thankfully the weather was with us if a little too warm . We cannot thank the staff more, they were very attentive to us throughout the day and we can highly recommend this as an amazing venue for your own wedding.

Thank you (and a big one at that!)
To David and the rest of the Team Well what can we say but "thank you" (and a big one at that), the past couple of years have been a bit of a whirlwind, but we made it (finally) to both our wedding and our wedding celebration.  Thank you so much for your patience, kindness etc in helping us plan.  We will hold fond memories of your beautiful venue always.  We had a truly wonderful day - on both occasions!

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

With twenty seven years’ worth of weddings behind us, selecting just one of them for that accolade is nigh on impossible. There have been so many weddings at The Lawn that have been truly memorable for all the right reasons.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

It is all about the Bride & Groom celebrating their wedding and not all about the guests. It is a Big Day but should also be a fun day and not a day spent worrying that every last guest has received the right personalised favour. Relax, enjoy and you will find that your guests will too!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Often a couple will have a very special, furry friend who they want to have with them to really make the day complete. Whether a dog playing a key role during the ceremony or a horse joining the couple for photos during the drinks reception, we like our couples to want for nothing on their wedding day.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Romantic (it has been selected as one of the top ten most romantic venues in the country). Exclusive (we will only ever host one wedding at a time). Welcoming (it retains the character and warmth of the Manor House home that it once was). Idyllic (set in three acres of landscaped gardens with 120 acres of parkland). Memorable (our couples and their guests often speak fondly about and recommend our venue for years after the wedding day).

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Too many to list. Our wedding photographers love this venue as they have the run of the house with it’s sweeping staircase, galleried hall and full length balcony along with its stunning gardens, fountain and expansive lawns. It really is one big photographic backdrop!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Numerous famous guests, including a England Rugby Captain, a leading Formula One driver, a certain very well known Radio 2 day time presenter and a wedding for an silver medal winning Olympic rower.

What’s your favourite canapé?

The Thai fish ball is to die for.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Bacon butties all round!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

It may sound strange but it would be its ‘feel’. Almost to a couple, our Brides & Grooms develop a special bond with The Lawn and comment how relaxed and at home they feel. It is a very special place.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

It has to be the people that make it all possible - from the Wedding side through to the garden, maintenance and Estate teams. It is a family run business and many comment the staff is like a large family as well. This is reflected in the atmosphere of calm and friendly professionalism that such a team creates. Our events team pull out all the stops for their clients. It is not just about selling and all the team members, including the owner, that conduct the viewings would also be involved in the planning and the management on the day. The majority of the team have been here for over ten years and have literally thousands of weddings’ worth of experience. Everything just flows. They are the best!
