The Best Place To Get Married in Essex

Our main function room is The Baronial Hall. Built circa 1600 out of light oak, it is considered to be one of the finest examples of a Tudor/Jacobean Barn.

It has a charm of its own, a very special atmosphere and that wow factor when you first see it. We have enhanced its medieval feel by adding atmosphere lighting; this charming wedding venue in Essex can then be colour matched to the theme chosen for your wedding.

The solid rosewood floor was acquired from County Hall London twenty years ago, and a hundred years after it was laid there. The Baronial Suite includes The Ryder Room, which is licensed to perform Civil & Partnership Ceremonies. It also has a Bridal Suite, allowing the bride to prepare herself prior to the ceremony and a private room to escape to. The private gardens are totally enclosed; It has a very private feel and cannot be overlooked by anyone. The trees are theme-lit to match the lighting in the Baronial Hall and the whole wedding venue suite is exclusive and self-contained.

Alongside the character, romance and charm that Crondon Park effortlessly showcases, our impeccable reputation is upheld with two recent awards; winner of ‘The Best Countryside Wedding Venue’ and highly commended for ‘The Best Barn Wedding Venue’ as voted by our couples, which is a truly amazing honour.
