May/June 2019

I’m so excited to be taking over as editor here at An Essex Wedding magazine. I got married in August 2016 in this wonderful county – I can’t believe how time flies – and now I get to continue my wedding love affair with you all.
Our day was fantastic; the glorious sunshine was matched by our very bright, tropical colour scheme. Although we started planning a very informal, chilled-out day, it soon got out of hand and I wish we’d had some expert advice like we have for you in our Hot Topic feature on page 117.

Although we got married less than three years ago it doesn’t stop me from looking through our Real Weddings, starting on page 41, and asking myself, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Maybe we’ll have to plan a vow renewal to incorporate all these new ideas – better get saving!

For me, the best weddings are a true reflection of the the couple. Whether you’re an outdoorsy pair ready to pull on your wellies in the Essex countryside or if getting hitched in one of the region’s extravagant stately homes is more your style, then you’ll find endless inspiration on these pages.

I can’t wait to share your journey - don't hesitate to get in touch with all your wedding-related news!

Leez Priory

Leez Priory lies in 40 acres of our glorious county’s landscape. A sweeping driveway lights the way to the front of the breathtaking Tudor manor house. Manicured lawns give way to sparkling lakes and secluded woodland, while the picture-perfect inner courtyard is set against the backdrop of the historic Great Tower.

The building’s red-brick façade is steeped in character with castle-like battlements, leaded windows and a central tower. Inside, this cosy house blends luxury and comfort with its oak-panelled walls, exposed beams and roaring log fire. The more rustic Coach House Barn offers a contrasting style for celebrations.

There are a number of stunning settings for ceremonies both indoors and outdoors. The post-vow celebrations can be held in the Coach House, the Great Hall or you can even hold your reception throughout the whole house for up to 250 people.

The venue’s all-inclusive packages are designed to take the stress out of wedding planning and offer fantastic value for money. There’s also a Fisherman’s Cottage available to stay in the night before the wedding, as well as 15 pretty bedrooms for when the party’s over.
