Choosing the perfect Essex wedding venue is an exciting part of your wedding planning.
 
There is a huge choice of Essex venues including country manor houses with acres of parkland and landscaped gardens, chic city boutique hotels and town centre locations for intimate weddings and civil ceremonies.
