Luxury Wedding Venue in Essex


Dating back to 1322, Down Hall has a wonderful array of rooms and suites to host the most intimate of ceremonies, luxury wedding breakfasts and stunning receptions, most with panoramic views over our beautiful gardens.

During 2019 we completed an extensive refurbishment of our Wedding facilities and can now offer one of the most luxurious and unique experiences within East Anglia, combining the beautiful historic touches of the building with some unexpected modern touches. Including a stunning new Master Suite.

We are also proud to have seen these changes recognised through being voted the “Best Hotel Wedding Venue” in the prestigious Essex Wedding Awards.

Our dedicated Wedding Co-ordinators will guide you through your arrangements from the very first time you contact us, to the moment you take your vows. Every detail is taken care of and they come equipped with lists of recommended suppliers, creative ideas and years of valuable experience to help make your wedding day everything you could have ever dreamed of and more.

Our Chef and his team have created the most delicious menus for your special occasion, using the freshest and finest ingredients either from our own vegetable garden or locally sourced produce, complimented by outstanding personal service from our staff.

Our different wedding reception rooms can cater for parties of different sizes, with our largest room holding 180 guests, and our intimate Rookwood offering the perfect space for 2 people to celebrate,  Large windows provide a dramatic outlook onto our landscaped Hertfordshire gardens, creating the perfect backdrop for live music performances and dancing, following your first dinner with your friends and family as a married couple.
