Here at East Mersea Hall we understand that every Wedding is unique. We work closely with our couples to make sure that their Wedding Day is 100% their way.


What type of venue do you offer?

The Pavilion. Our Pavilion is a Barn style venue. With light oak beams, glass fronted floor to ceiling windows that overlooks the lake, it is a great location for your Wedding Breakfast. It can seat up to 150 guests for a meal and 250 for an evening. The Secret Garden. The Secret Garden is for Festival style Weddings and is located behind our lake. The great thing about its location says it all in its name “The Secret Garden” Your guests will be completely unaware that it is there throughout your reception drinks and canapes and will only realise when you take your seats for your Wedding breakfast.

Are you licensed for Civil Ceremonies?

East Mersea Hall is licensed for Civil ceremonies both inside the Drawing Room and The Pavilion and outside in our Walled Garden or tranquil Woodland. We also have the beautiful Saint Edmunds Church situated a 30 second walk away.

Do you allow external Caterers?

You are only able to use our in-house catering team to ensure quality of food and service.

Do you have a team that can help with planning and managing the day?

Our experienced team will guide you through the entire planning process from start to finish. You will also have a Wedding Manager on the day to make sure that everything runs smoothly and that you have a stress-free day.

Do you have accommodation on site?

We have our Bridal Suite that is available from 10.30am the morning of your Wedding and yours to stay in for the evening. There are lots of Air B&B’s on the Island for your guests should they wish to stay close by.


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

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.

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

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

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.
