Leez Priory is a magnificent Tudor mansion and is one of the most sought after wedding venues in the country. Set in 40 acres of parkland, with lakes, lawns and a sweeping driveway, Leez Priory is nestled in the heart of the Essex countryside. Although it has the idyllic village location, it is only 20 minutes from Stansted Airport, 15 minutes from Chelmsford and the M11 to London so easily accessible by road, air and rail.
With twenty five years of experience in providing perfect weddings, Leez Priory is offered exclusively to you for your special day.
With a choice of seven licensed ceremony settings, your day can really be personalised to you. The historic Great Tower, adjacent to the main house, can provide an intimate setting inside or an imposing backdrop for an outdoor ceremony on sunny days. Within the main house the Great Hall is full of character and charm or the house itself could be the setting for your ceremony.
The spectacular Great Hall can seat up to 86 guests for the wedding breakfast and the newly converted Coach House can accommodate larger parties of up to 100 guests. As the entire house and grounds are exclusively yours you can also invite up to 250 guests for the evening wedding reception and party.
There are 15 beautiful bedrooms available to you for your wedding night, providing the perfect end to your perfect day at Leez Priory. The Fisherman’s Cottage, tucked away overlooking the lake, is available to the Bride and Bridesmaids to stay the night before your big day allowing you to wake up revived and refreshed ready for your special day!
They have ramps to allow access for all ground floor rooms, a disabled-friendly toilet in the main building and they have a disabled-friendly bedroom with a wet room in the courtyard rooms. Unfortunately, as the venue is a grade I listed building, they are unable to provide lifts to the first floor areas including the Great Hall and the Tower.
The photograph opportunities are endless and will create lasting memories of your special day. Leez Priory is three times winner of Wedding Ideas Magazine ‘Best Wedding Venue’ and it is easy to see why!
