Don't just take our word for it....

We had our wedding in the grounds of East Mersea Hall and after a year and a half of lockdowns and COVID it was the perfect venue for a party. The woodland was a great outdoor space for our ceremony, both spacious and intimate. The venue also has so many other outdoor spaces which everybody enjoyed spending most of the day in and there is also a lovely Pavillon for the seated meal.

There is also a beautiful lake, a rope swing, and bridal suite to get ready in and later spend your first night as a married couple in. All the guests said the venue was stunning and the kids enjoyed running around and playing garden games etc. Kirsty and the team delivered impeccable service and their experience shows. Since taking the place over they have really upgraded it. We would highly recommend this wedding venue, especially if you are having a lot of guests.

the best day of our life!

Kirsty and team have been incredible this last year, with the lockdowns and postponements I cannot thank Kirsty enough for the love, care and reassurance she gave us over one of the most stressful year.

Having to postpone due to the pandemic was never going to be easy but knowing Kirsty was there made things run as smoothly as it could, there was times we both felt like throwing in the towel and canceling but after a quick phone call with Kirsty and listening to her positive thinking the excitement in our belly’s was back.

Her and her team was absolutely faultless throughout the whole process from booking the wedding until the last drink was served.

The grounds are stunning, the staff are wonderful. I have been to lots of wedding venues as a makeup artist but this is most beautiful wedding venue of them all!

EVERYTHING ran so smoothly and it was honestly the best day of our life.

We got married here July 2021 and had the time of our lives! We were blown away by the exceptional service, and priceless expertise and experience of the team. We were supported throughout the planning process, including 3 changed dates due to the pandemic. Total professionals that are there for you every step of the way.

The venue is unbelievably beautiful, an idyllic location in every way.

Thank you so much for bringing our dream day to life!

There are no amount of words for us to describe how perfect our wedding day was. We are so grateful that we were able to celebrate our special day at East Mersea Hall. The venue is honestly breathtaking from day to night, which has been captured so perfectly within our wedding photos.

The location is beautiful and was complimented by every guest as it has something for everyone. Our wedding was festival themed so it was the most perfect setting. Kirsty and Anneka were absolutely amazing and we couldn’t have wished for better hosts to help us pull of SHEERFEST 2021!

Happiest day of our lives.

From the moment we booked the venue all the way to the moment we left Kirsty and the team looked after us. Through Covid they kept us informed and helped us by keeping dates aside in case we had to postpone again.

They dealt with all of our suppliers, some of them easier to deal with than others. But didn’t complain and took all of the pressure off of us.

Our wedding wasn’t a conventional wedding. So we had numerous complicated elements to be planned and factored in. But we never really had to worry because it was all looked after by the team. We were just told everything will be fine and it was perfect.

The team were perfect on the day making sure things were running smoothly. Everything happens without you needing to be involved. You get to the next part of the day and everything is ready and waiting. No questions, no fuss, no problems. And yet they are perfectly discrete in what they do. Waiters and waitresses you will see. The people keeping things running smoothly are in the background working away on walky talkies.

The venue is stunning. With so much work and thought put into it. Whether you’re getting married indoors or outdoors any time of the year there’s a beautiful place to have a photo. Our guests said it was perfect and most said they dreaded to think how much we paid. And yet it was cheaper than many of the venues we’d been to before.

We have already said we’d like to go back and have a party there every year with the team. Most people we’ve spoken to have said it’s the best wedding they’ve ever been to.

Thanks so much everyone who was involved.

We were lucky to have our wedding reception at East Mersea Hall in September 2021. It’s a beautiful venue – amazing grounds around the lake for our drinks reception (even more stunning at night with all the lights!) and a great indoor space for lots of people at dinner.

Just as great as the venue was the team (particularly Kirsty and Anneka), who were wonderfully supportive and helpful from beginning to end. The food and drink was also excellent – the cocktails on tap went down very well with our guests! Thanks to everyone at East Mersea Hall for an incredible day!

Martyn / September 2021

Kirsty and Anneka and the whole team are fabulous, the lockdown and postponement of 2020 just made everything even more perfect as the excitement was even higher when we finally arrived at the most beautifully presented grounds and accommodation. The venue has the most picture perfect spots everywhere we were spoilt for choice from the lake, to the swing, to the woodland arch, to the magical driveway with the lovely lampposts, to the outdoor ceremony area with it’s beautiful walled garden.

Everyone loved the day which went seamlessly thanks to Anneka and the staff who made everything go like clockwork. The food was fabulous beautifully presented and plentiful from the canapés to the hog roast to the fish and chips cones for supper.
Nothing was too much trouble and everyone made the day perfect. Go visit it’s the best place for a wedding you won’t regret it.

We had our Wedding at the beautiful East Mersea Hall in September 2021. Our guests were blown away – the lake, the grounds, the atmosphere – everyone was (and still are) raving about the wedding!

The owner Kirsty was amazing – she runs a very smooth operation where nothing is too much trouble and she manages to bring all your ideas to life!  We has 150 guests for the day and had a banquet style set up for dinner – it looked amazing and the food was superb, even for such large numbers. The venue is really adaptable to create you own feel (we had oysters, a string quartet, installed hanging flower chandeliers….) so its a great place to create your dream day with guidance from a true professional. And, to top it all off, they served a top notch Espresso Martini!! Thank you so much,

H & C / September 2021

From our first visit back in March we just knew that we’d found THE place. Daisy spotted some gorgeous shots on Instagram from the woodland that just sparked an instant connection. This was more than a pretty venue, it was a physical manifestation of how we wanted to celebrate our civil partnership.

Meeting Kirsty and getting a tour was the icing on the cake. Although we went and visited other perfectly lovely venues, it was clear none could compete with East Mersea Hall. So we booked! Next came the barrage of questions that we fired at Kirsty about exactly how we wanted to craft our day to exacting standards. With her industry experience and cool headedness, Kirsty didn’t once break a sweat and nothing was too much for us. We felt well looked after in the run up. Anneka kept things going smoothly on the day and offered the best kind of background support so that our plans unfolded just as we’d envisaged. This was all the more impressive when we discovered that her car had been crashed into by an inconsiderate driver on the way in that very morning. Talk about the show must go on -That’s what we call dedication to service! The secret garden was super fun for the kids to play around in. The serving staff were friendly and professional and the catering was delicious. There was plenty of food and the lakeside views as you eat will transport you to an exquisite Mediterranean retreat! Having the cottage to stay over in was so convenient for us and the holiday site right next door is perfect for guests to stay in and stumble back to on foot of an evening. Our special day was early September and we got incredibly sunny weather which elevated everything to the next level! Mersea is a lovely place to find yourself too so it’s ideal for making a long weekend of things if you are so inclined! You don’t need us to tell you this is the right place to book, you’ll realise in the first 5 minutes of being there so get a tour booked in and we hope you have as wonderful a celebration at EMH as we did!

As father of the groom I would like to thank you for laying on an absolutely wonderful wedding.

The ceremony in the woods was magical; the grounds and the venue beautiful, and the service was excellent. Your team worked hard all day and in difficult Covid times always with good humour and understanding. As a proud parent I could not have wished for more.

David / July 2021

Ticks all the boxes, an exceptional wedding venue for those looking for something special

Chris / October 2021

Great Oktoberfest tonight. Beautiful place

Louise / October 2021

We cannot recommend East Mersea Hall highly enough as a wedding venue. The grounds are stunning, with a great balance between spaciousness and cosiness. Kirsty, the Wedding and Events Manager, is relentlessly supportive and highly knowledgeable about everything weddings. This was a huge help to us as we didn’t know where to start! During the pandemic, Kirsty has been super understanding and has allowed us to postpone on two occasions with no hassles at all. She is amazing!

Natasha / March 2021

Love the grounds here it so so beautiful. Ive been slowly witnessing the progress of the transformation and would love to get married here one day. The different options for weddings are great too I love the idea of a secret garden and teepee wedding ❤️

Melanie / January 2021

This place is truly spectacular.. Beautiful grounds..so much choice to suit what kind of wedding you would like as well. Kirsty has been super helpful and supportive throughout lockdown. When I needed to move my wedding nothing was too much trouble and she always stayed in contact with me to keep me up to date on what was happening. Can’t wait to get married here in 2021. If you are looking for a venue make sure you add East mersea Hall to your list. You won’t be disappointed! Thanks again x

Shirley / January 2020

Such an amazing venue, stunning grounds, wonderful staff, completely magical

Chloe and Ben / August 2021

We held my Mum’s 80th birthday at the venue and I cannot recommend it more highly.

The venue itself is beautiful and the space lends itself ideally to a great party.  Kirsty and her team were a pleasure to work with. From the outset Kirsty worked with us and was happy to supply options as we were deciding what format the party would take. The catering was superb as was the cake that Kirsty organised.

The venue looked wonderful on the day, Kirsty was on hand to make sure everything ran smoothly and I have had so many comments from guests on how beautiful the venue was, how fantastic the food was and how wonderful all of the staff were.

Thank you so much to all of the Team for making the event perfect.
