Leez Priory

The feel

Exclusively weddings, Exclusively Yours

Three times Winner of Wedding Ideas Magazine ‘Best Wedding Venue’, this magnificent Tudor mansion is one of the most sought after wedding venues in the country and has twenty five years of experience in providing perfect wedding days. Set in 40 acres of parkland, complete with lakes, lawns and a sweeping driveway, Leez Priory is offered to you exclusively for your wedding day.

Civil ceremonies can be performed in any of five licensed settings including the stunning Great Tower which stands adjacent to the main house and outside beneath the carriageway for a truly unique setting. The stunning Great Hall can seat up to 74 guests for the wedding breakfast and the newly converted Coach House can seat up to 100 guests. As we offer exclusive use of the entire house you can also invite up to 250 guests for the evening reception and party.

Leez Priory also boasts 15 lovely bedrooms for 34 guests (including the bridal suite) which are exclusively reserved for you on your wedding night as well as a hidden cottage within the grounds for the Bride and Bridesmaids to stay in the night before the big day.

Leez Priory is located in the heart of rural Essex, yet is only 15 minutes from Chelmsford and the M11 to London.
