Your special day

Located in rural Essex, within easy access of the A12, A127 and just 20 minutes from the M25, family run Downham Hall is a perfect venue to gather friends and loved ones. The stunning and lovingly restored Hall is surrounded by beautiful countryside and situated at the bottom of a hill, providing an all round panoramic view of the surrounding area. The Hall is set apart from civilisation by a charming country lane and all who come to visit are impressed by the beautiful facade and grand entranceway upon arrival.

This part-moated Hall is a fabulous venue for your wedding day, offering plenty of opportunities for those picture postcard shots of your special day. It is currently being refurbished to a very high standard and every detail is considered in our planning and design to ensure your special day runs smoothly and you have a wonderful stay here at Downham Hall.

When you choose Downham Hall, you will enjoy exclusive use of the Hall and we will be offering five individually designed luxurious bedrooms all with en suites and breathtaking views, as well as a bridal changing room overlooking the gardens. Breakfast is provided the following morning, allowing you time to
enjoy being with family and friends after your special day.

We have a fabulous entrance hall to welcome guests and in winter time the fireplace is a fantastic backdrop to some great photo opportunities. The function room will hold up to 50 guests seated and the orangery is a great place to take in the views of the garden. There are several seated areas including a patio, raised decking area and further seating provided on the south side of the Hall overlooking the moat. For larger groups we offer a marquee within the grounds on the south side of the Hall.

The church which overlooks Downham Hall at the top of the hill is a beautiful place to have a wedding ceremony and is within throwing distance of the venue. There are also several other places for ceremonies to take place both inside and outside of the Hall itself within the grounds. We are currently applying for a
wedding licence for various locations within the Hall and grounds.

We pride ourselves in seeking the very best in everything connected to our venue and have sought out the best suppliers, offering excellent service in a relaxed atmosphere.

Our wedding co-ordinators will be available from the very first booking to answer all questions and provide a guiding hand throughout the planning phase through to the special day itself.

This boutique venue is the perfect place to begin married life together and offers the following:

  • Our wedding philosophy

    Our philosophy

    We believe that a wedding should be fun on
    the day and that you can look back happily and know that all your guests had a great time. We
    appreciate that weddings can be very stressful and encourage you to resist the stress and
    heighten the excitement. Good food, good friends around you, great photos, and a relaxed order
    to the day with some lovely, incredibly special details will make it your perfect day.
    We are being very selective with suppliers as they are a key factor in the success of any
    wedding and have spent a lot of time meeting and gaining feedback on the ones we have chosen to
    work with.

  • Our wedding grounds

    Our grounds

    We have been incredibly proud of the progress already made in the gardens and
    simply cutting down the growth has revealed the intrisic relationship with the beautiful
    countryside all around. The panoramic views range from immediate crop or cow filled fields down
    to the Thames Estuary and Kent in the distance beyond.

  • Our function rooms

    Our Function Rooms

    We aim to offer three distinct inside spaces, our lobby with historic fireplace, our large
    function room and stunning Orangery overlooking the gardens and basin like countryside. All
    are being renovated right now but we have visual plans and progress every day.Read more
