Both of our venues are licenced for ceremonies.

Cressing Temple Barns

You can host your ceremony in one of our stunning Grade I listed Templar barns or in the beautiful orchard within the Tudor walled garden. You can enjoy reception drinks surrounded by the ambient atmosphere and trickling sounds of the centralised water feature in the Knot Garden.

Essex Records Office

The Andre Room can host up to 36 guests for your Registry Office wedding. You can choose to upgrade the chairs with our dusky gold sashes for a small additional cost.

If you would like to feel like a movie star, you can make a grand entrance into our Spalding Room, which can seat up 140 guests.

Our Norden Room, accommodating up to 50 guests is an alternative for a light and airy atmosphere.
