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

As cliche as it sounds, we knew as soon as we walked into East Mersea Hall that it was the venue for us. The secluded location and diversity of options at the venue make it truly unique. From the intimate ceremony hall, outer grounds + lake, outdoor ceremony alcove, woodland area and pavilion.
 
Anneka and Gill were friendly, approachable, responsive, knowledgeable & helped make the whole process enjoyable and stress free. Gill was a star on the day and ensured everything ran smoothly, including sorting a few minor hiccups!
 
All of the staff including the waiting team and chefs were incredible and accommodating.
 
Kate and I have said that with all the money in the world and no location restrictions we would still have selected East Mersea Hall as our wedding venue and would thoroughly recommend the venue and amazing team to anyone.
Matt / October 23
East Mersea Hall was the most fantastic venue we ever could have hoped for for our wedding! We knew right from the moment that we came through the gates that this was the perfect place for us, and we were in no way disappointed. The venue is GORGEOUS and there are so many options to help you build the perfect day for you. All of the staff were so so kind and helpful and looked after us, right from our first walk around with Kirsty through to Gill being a perfect co-ordinator on the day. It was so important to us to feel like we got on well with the people in charge of our big day, and the whole team were just so warm and made us feel so special. Gill made sure everything ran without a hitch- we even found out a few days after the wedding that some of our guests had had some issues which she’d completely resolved behind the scenes without us ever finding out! Everyone was so patient with my million emails and went above and beyond to make sure it was the perfect day, from recommending and facilitating a photoshoot on the nearby beach, to putting on a fantastic and delicious BBQ, to remembering that I didn’t want to be called Mrs and even working in secret with my husband to coordinate a big surprise for me on the day! We can never thank the team enough, and would recommend this beautiful venue to absolutely anyone.
Amy / July 2023
We had our blessing ceremony here at East Mersea Hall after we eloped and wanted our family to also experience us sharing our love and commitment to each other. A special shoutout to Anneka who was amazing the whole planning process and was always on hand to help us with anything we needed and made sure everything ran smoothly and kept our surprises a secret from all the guests! We cannot wait to get our photos and video back so we can share them with you! Thank you so so much! Xxx
Chelsea / July 2023
East Mersea Hall was absolutely perfect. We fell in love with it instantly when we looked around, and Mersea itself was a special place for us as we spent a lot of time there when we started dating. It really is a gem. The grounds are stunning and our guests were constantly talking about it for days afterward. The water lilies were in bloom and the grounds were perfect for guests to mingle and provided many beautiful photo opportunities. The staff took great care of us and our guests throughout the day and helped keep us organised. Anneka our organiser was great, especially in the lead-up to the wedding helping advise us on what needed to be done and adapting to last minute changes. We were thrilled to find a venue that would allow our dog there for the ceremony and reception drinks too. I cannot stress enough how much we loved our day and it will be the best of memories for years to come.
Will / June 23

We initially contacted East Mersea Hall in 2020 after seeing them recommended on a local Facebook page. We were concerned about trying to arrange our wedding during lockdown but Kirsty and her team were there every step of the way and were great at keeping in regular contact throughout the whole process. We were very impressed with the team’s efficiency, professionalism, and passion while helping us figure out how to make our day go as smoothly as possible.The pricing, facilities available, options and variety, and flexibility of packages were fantastic and we really enjoyed tailoring our specific package to make the day suit us. The team were on the other end of an email to answer any questions we had and explain anything that was unclear in the lead up and we really appreciated this.We got married on 20th April 2023 and the team were on site the whole day to take the stress off us and to help the day run as planned. Anneka and Jill were there at every step of the day and their efficiency and organisation meant that we didn’t have to worry about a thing all day. They went above and beyond for us, even going as far as to video call my husband’s grandparents who weren’t well enough to attend in person so they could still see us get married. This was such a lovely gesture and meant so much to us both. We cannot thank the whole team enough for everything they did for us to make our day perfect.

Chloe / April 2023
Went here as a guest and I can honestly say I had my breath taken away by the beauty of the venue. Medium sized boating lake in the middle, fields and woods to the far side and lovely timberframed buildings. I would love for more excuses to come back
Jed / April 2023
We had the best day of our lives, literally! East Mersea Hall is such a stunning venue with a beautiful lake. We partly chose this venue due to the fact that it’s so lovely already it didn’t need much decorating! All of the staff were brilliant from viewing the venue, through the planning and to the end. Gill made us feel relaxed knowing she was helping our wedding day go smoothly and it was a joy to have her involved. The staff serving our food were uplifting and well mannered. We couldn’t recommend this venue enough! Love from, Hannah and Jack Xx
Hannah and Jack / April 2023
Had the most amazing wedding here, nothing was too much to ask for, and our guests couldn’t stop commenting how beautiful the venue was! Anneka is an absolute diamond and she made our day go off without a hitch! Our wedding was so special 💕
Salma / September 2023

A beautiful Wedding venue on the wonderful Mersea Island, options for indoor or outdoor ceremonies, a function room, lake and grounds steeped in countryside charm. The staff are attentive and friendly and so very helpful.

SK / September 2023
We viewed East Mersea Hall first to host our wedding and looked no further. We fell in love with the venue and overall relaxed, friendly vibe. We got married August 23 and it was everything we hoped it would be – and more. Venue, Staff, food – all 100%.
Nicola / August 2023
Our day was just perfect. Perfect location, perfect setting and made all the more perfect with the attention to detail and service provided by the staff at the venue. Special thanks to both Kirsty and Gill who made our outside ceremony happen despite the changeable weather conditions. We had so many compliments on the choice of venue on the day, and they keep on coming. We could not have asked for more. If you want a ‘WOW’ factor then East Mersea Hall provides just that. For a relaxed, informal wedding then this ticks all of the right boxes. You really can have it all, including the stunning lake, high quality venue which is kept in tip top condition and secluded, well kept grounds.
Diana / July 2023
As soon as we saw this venue we fell in love with it. We made an appointment to view the grounds, which we did, and then booked it straight away. We didn’t even look at any other venues. It was just everything and more. Anneka and Kirsty were absolutely amazing and made our day so special. They took care of everything, there was constant communication, Anneka helped me with all the planning as I didn’t have a clue. There was just nothing that we could have added to this day, everything was already taken care of. The grounds are absolutely stunning, we had a woodland wedding which was incredible. The BBQ food was so delicious too. You will not be disappointed with this venue or the staff, truly fantastic.
Abigail / June 23
AMAZING VENUE ! AMAZING STAFF ! myself and my now husband got married here in may 2023, from the first day we visited east mersea hall we were always helped and given the information we needed. our wedding planner Anneka was fantastic from start to finish, no job was to much and always made us feel welcome and relaxed. We had countless comments from guests on how beautiful the grounds were and how lovely the food was. We had an amazing day and would love to do it all over again. Thank you so much east mersea hall to an amazing beginning to married life.
Kelly and Aiden .L. / May 2023

Could not recommend East Mersea Hall enough! The venue is beyond beautiful, the service is incredible and the staff are some of the loveliest, most helpful people! We had our day on the 14th May and it was magical! Our wedding manager Anneka went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly and we didn’t have to worry about a thing!

Bethany / May 2023

What’s not to love! Beautiful venue, lovely staff, great food, all the facilities you could need = all adding up to the best wedding you could ask forThe lead up to our wedding was managed fantastically by the team, every step of the way, especially Anneka. Due to a family bereavement just weeks before our wedding, things weren’t quite as planned for us in the weeks leading up to our big day – Anneka couldn’t have been more helpful, supportive and kind.Literally couldn’t recommend this place more highly if you want a gorgeous venue that cares about making your day the very best it can be!

Rachel / May 2023
Not sure where to begin. Firstly with what a spectacularly beautiful place East Mersea Hall is. Every attention to detail from the moment you arrive in their enchanting car park. The bridal suite with the dressing room and mirrors akin to a salon. The ante room where you feel part of a family when meeting the registrars. The ceremony room which is intimate and beautiful. The patio and lake. Oh what a backdrop. Finally the reception room with a full sided view of the lake, comfortable chairs, well-stocked good size bar and fabulous toilets with a big mirror in the ladies (can’t speak for the men’s). Add all this to the perfect wedding team. Kirsty and Anneka have it all sewn up. There isn’t single thing I could fault. Anneka is the perfect hostess. Nothing is too much trouble and everything runs like clockwork. The food is spectacular. All of our guests agreed. If you are considering getting married, you would be a fool to chose anywhere else.
Julia and Jon / April 2023

Not only how amazingly beautiful this wedding venue is, it is also filled with the nicest, kindest and most helpful team. From start to finish they went above and beyond for us, so that our wedding day was special.

Anneka was amazing and any questions we had or anything we wanted she made it happened. Even to the point of personally drying the boat out so we could get in it.

The food was amazing and there was plenty of it.
We couldn’t have had a better wedding day it was perfect and that was all thanks to Anneka and the team

Mr and Mrs Rampton / October 2022

Wow where do I start.. this venue is beautiful and even in February when it was chilly we all captured some amazing shots and it was simply magical.

Anneka our wedding coordinator was amazing and her attention to detail from the first meeting right up until the end of our wedding night was incredible, she simply took the stress and planning out of our hands, I’m amazed by how easy the day flowed just by Anneka stepping in and taking on board what needed to be done 🙂 

The venue itself speaks volumes, the bridal suite was big enough for my bridal party which included 7 bridesmaids, mother of the bride, my two boys who was in and out, photographer and my make up and hair ladies.. absolutely stress free! 

The ceremony room was simply beautiful and the lake just looks beautiful no matter what the weather.

The pavilion which held the reception was so classy and spacious and everyone commented on what a hidden gem this place is.

Anneka sorted patio heaters which we hired to keep our guests warm also for those who wanted to smoke or chill outside and the bar staff were always on hand for any spilt drinks or orders to make sure their was no waiting around.

The food was amazing, we went for the fish and chips cones and a buffet for the evening and the comments we received after about the fish and chips being the best they had tried in a while.. I honestly am still buzzing at how amazing this place was for the best day of our lives 🙂 highly recommend xxxx

Jo and Aaron / February 2023

Myself & my new Husband got married at East Mersea hall on the 19th of November 2022.

We viewed in February of the same year, and I knew the second I saw the beautiful grounds that was where we would get married. In fact, it was the only venue we viewed.

During the lead up to the wedding the team were organised, efficient and nothing was too much trouble.

Our actual day ran like clockwork. I had so little to do besides enjoy our day. The team took charge of everything – however big or small. The food and service were second to none & we had so many compliments on the choice of food as we had the BBQ. Every member of staff was kind, courteous and polite. And the grounds speak for themselves, they made for an incredibly beautiful backdrop to our Autumn wedding.

I can’t recommend the venue enough, Anneka, Kirsty & their team are absolute professionals at what they do and when I say they are cool calm and collected every step of the way I really mean it. Which is exactly what you need on your wedding day!

Thank you so much for making my wedding vision come alive – our whole day was like a fairy-tale. A real dream come true

Hannah / November 22

We cannot thank Kirsty, Anneka, and the team enough for making our wedding day such a great memory. After postponing twice due to Covid, we finally got to tie the knot in August this year, allowing family and friends from around the world to come and celebrate with us, which we are very grateful to Kirsty for.

Anneka was an absolute god-send, smoothing out all the kinks and crinkles and soothing any worries all the way through the planning right up to and throughout the day.

The venue is stunning with lots of great places for a wide range of photo styles, all of our guests greatly complimented the beauty of it and our photographer had a field day exploring!

The catering team was excellent, we had a vegan wedding and our guests loved the menu choices, the care taken, and taste! The options for evening food were fantastic too, again we received lovely compliments from our guests.
Overall we couldn’t have had any more of a perfect day. We would rate the place and the staff higher if we could.

Josh / August 22

WOW what an amazing place. Our wedding went by without a hitch. Everyone said it was an amazing place. My whole day was as perfect as perfect can be. The venue. The staff. Everyone was very accommodating. Thank you for making my day as perfect as perfect can be. 👰🤵💍🎉❤️

Clair / October 22

We had the most wonderful wedding from before the big day to the end of the day everything was spot on!
Anneka will make sure everything runs like clockwork, whilst the venue and the grounds speak for themselves! I didn’t have to do much at all Anneka and Kirsty took care of everything and we had the best day ever! We are so glad we chose east Mersea hall. Amazing food perfectly run and everything is top notch from the service to the dance floor ❤️ Nothing was too much trouble Thankyou!

Emma / August 22

3 years waiting to be married and it definitely was worth the wait.

ALL of our guests were saying how wonderful the venue is. They couldn’t believe how we had found a place with the setting it has, how nice the reception/ disco was and how good the food was. So much food!!!

Thank you all so much for making our day run so smoothly. We definitely couldn’t have done it without you both.

We wish you all the success for the future and are already trying to figure out a way we can come back to have another party with you!

Peter / August 22

Wonderful setting and extremely helpful staff. Brilliant!

John / August 22

This venue has so many different areas for photographs, plus when day turns to night the water is lit up in a stunning manor for yet again more photograph opportunities. When going to this venue it is rude not to have a go on the big swing. You can also have an outdoor ceremony in a beautiful dedicated ceremony area. The team here are very friendly and help the day run smoothly. This is a great venue to be able to customize the day and add unique suppliers and make your day special.

Samuel / August 22

Had the pleasure of entertaining for a wedding at this stunning venue. fantastic helpful staff in a perfect venue for any event

Andy / July 22

We had an amazing wedding at East Mersea Hall, despite the weather not being on our side. The ceremony was very personal to us and it was in a beautiful setting inside everyone commented on how cosy it was and what a great atmosphere. The staff were amazing as was Anneka our wedding co-ordinator who we had a great repour with. Everything was perfect and a lot of guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to!!


If I could do it all over again I would, such a special day

Daisey / June 22

East Mersea Hall is a gorgeous venue! The children had hours of fun on the huge swing and as the sun goes down, the tree-wrapped fairy lights and the lovely lamps that circle the pond looked magical x

Charlotte / June 22

They took care of everything, there was constant communication, Anneka helped me with all the planning as I didn’t have a clue.

The BBQ food was so delicious too. You will not be disappointed with this venue or the staff, truly fantastic.

Abigail / June 22
We were fortunate enough to get married at this stunning wedding venue on Saturday 18/03/2023 and it was absolutely the best thing we have even done! All the team at East Mersea Hall Wedding and Events Venue are so so good at what they do! They are the most helpful team I have ever met, especially Anneka who absolutely made our day! We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding coordinator. She was absolutely amazing in all the planning and so so helpful on the day too! All the suppliers also said how amazing she was and that they had never seen a wedding coordinator help the bride so much on the day! Forever grateful! It’s safe to say we chose the best wedding venue and I would absolutely recommend to anyone looking to get married not only for the amazing people but the stunning views, it really is a venue that has it all!
 
 
Louise / March 2023

We got married at East Mersea hall on 24/09/22. We can truly not rate this venue enough!! Anneka was absolutely amazing with sorting everything, replying to emails and making sure everything ran smoothly. The staff on the day were amazing, the venue was kept clean and tidy, and everything ran smoothly. We have had a lot of guests mention how nice the staff were and how lovely the venue was. The food was beautiful and very well presented we had lots of comments of how lovely it was. We can’t thank Anneka and the staff enough for our amazing day. We truly have memories that will last forever. Thank you All xx

Eleanor / October 22

Me and my wife recently celebrated our wedding at East Mersea Hall, and it really was the perfect venue for our wedding.

We booked the venue in the height of covid without even being able to visit the venue, but this risk paid off massively.

Anneka, Kirsty and the team really went above and beyond to ensure every last detail of our wedding went to plan.

The whole process of wedding planning was completely smooth with Anneka happy to accommodate any request for our wedding, with many of our guests commenting how wonderful the venue and whole day was.

I would not hesitate in an instant to book this venue again. Thanks again to East Mersea Hall for hosting our wedding!

Andrew / October 22

We had an absolutely amazing day at East Mersea Hall. We honestly could not have asked for anything more. The venue is so picturesque, the food was delicious and most importantly the staff are so amazing and accommodating and we would like to thank the whole team, especially Anneka, for helping everything to run so smoothly for us 💕

Amy / October 22

We booked our wedding at East Mersea Hall over 2 1/2 years ago… We were so impressed with Kirsty, her vision and passion we booked immediately. Our wedding was then postponed once and we then moved to 2022.
We finally got married in July and I can say that it was absolute perfection. East Mersea Hall is the MOST stunning venue. We had a tipi in the secret garden and our wedding day was a dream from start to finish.
Kirsty and the team made everything run so smoothly and seamlessly and made sure that my husband and I really enjoyed our day.
Everyone thought we were crazy organising a wedding with 3 little kids, but it was a joy from start to finish and you all made it so easy.
The food was out of this world and our guests were really blown away by how amazing it was.
From the meetings, to the tastings and constant reassurance and care, I cannot recommend Kirsty and her team enough. Thank you for helping us to have the most amazing celebration and tying the knot at East Mersea Hall was the best decision we made and has been the perfect way to celebrate becoming Mr & Mrs xxx

Holly / August 22

We got married at East Mersea Hall on 27th August 2022 and it was a perfect, magical day. From our initial enquiry, Anneka and Kirsty were professional. obliging, responsive and all you could ask for. The day itself ran smoothly, the food and service was incredible and the venue itself was just beautiful. We had our ceremony in the garden and the wedding breakfast and evening in the Pavilion, all of our guests said it was a fantastic wedding. The bridal suite for getting ready in and our overnight stay was fantastic and the breakfast basket the next morning was a nice touch. Thank you all so much for a truly wonderful day. Gail and Sax.

Gail / August 22

The service was very friendly, thoughtful and professional. Our guests were really impressed with the beautiful venue and excellent service and all really enjoyed the canapes and wedding breakfast. Would highly recommend.

Melody / August 22

The venue is amazing but the best thing about East Mersea is Anneka and Kirsty!!! 🙂 They are cool as ice, such pros and so lovely, which is just what you need on your wedding day. They made everything so easy, so straightforward, I was so impressed by them!!! East Mersea itself is incredible, all of our guests kept telling us how amazing the venue is, they loved how many different little cool parts there are to hang out, they all gave it rave reviews. You really can’t go wrong with East Mersea, it’s an epic venue with awesome people running it!!!!

Paul / August 22

East Mersea Hall was absolutely perfect. We fell in love with it instantly when we looked around, and Mersea itself was a special place for us as we spent a lot of time there when we started dating. It really is a gem. The grounds are stunning and our guests were constantly talking about it for days afterward. The water lilies were in bloom and the grounds were perfect for guests to mingle and provided many beautiful photo opportunities. The staff took great care of us and our guests throughout the day and helped keep us organised. Anneka our organiser was great, especially in the lead-up to the wedding helping advise us on what needed to be done and adapting to last minute changes. We were thrilled to find a venue that would allow our dog there for the ceremony and reception drinks too.
I cannot stress enough how much we loved our day and it will be the best of memories for years to come.

Will / June 22

After postponing our wedding twice we finally tied the knot at this amazing venue! We were originally getting married somewhere else but fell head over heels in love with East Mersea Hall and their incredible staff. Anneka was absolutely amazing in the lead-up to the wedding, nothing was too much trouble, even rearranging the table plan just days before – she made it so easy and straightforward for us, with no panic or stress whatsoever. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and all of our guests commented on how the staff went above and beyond for us. Highly recommend it, 5 stars aren’t enough!

Emily / June 22

Well, what can I say, after two years of our wedding being canceled due to lockdown restrictions, we decided to move our venue to East Mersea Hall, and what a great decision that was, they are so accommodating, and their attention to detail is second to none. Thoroughly recommend this venue.

Mel / June 22

East Mersea Hall was everything we could have hoped for and more! The grounds are idyllic and everyone was obsessed with how beautiful it was. The staff are so helpful, organised and attentive and we didn’t have anything to worry about on the day.

Kirsty and Anneka were so flexible with anything we had in mind for decorations and helped to set everything up just as we had imagined it. The food was utterly delicious and everyone commented on how generous all of the servings were!

So we would like to say a massive thank you for making our day absolutely perfect. We wouldn’t have changed a thing. Also, a special thank you to Anneka for cleaning the boat before we got in (hehe). You all really do go above and beyond.

Much love and gratitude,

Nicole / March 2022

Words cannot describe how beautiful East Mersea Hall is.

We booked the venue in 2020 during the pandemic and didn’t get the opportunity to view it. Kirsty and Anneka has been amazing. They showed us around the venue via video call. The first time we actually got to see the venue was the day before the wedding which was in September 2021. It was exactly as the pictures online and on Instagram. The venue was so beautiful that it required minimal decorations.

The team kept us informed throughout and have been very helpful and supportive. They communicated effectively with us and made sure everything ran smoothly on the day. Even our guests were gushing about how stunning the venue looked. We took our vows outdoor and had our reception indoors. I love that we didn’t have to commute far between vows and the reception. The outdoor scenery was amazing. We even took pictures on the boat by the lake.

I would 100 percent recommend East Mersea Hall to anyone. You will be in great hands!!

Kelechi / September 2021

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

Chris / October 2021

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.

Vaitehi / July 2021

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.

Mrs Farthing / July 2021

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!

Atlanta / July 2021

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!

Lauren S / August 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.

sophie renn / September 2021

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.

Jan W / August 2021

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.

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!

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.
