Wedding Arrangements

Smeetham Hall Barn is the perfect venue for your wedding reception. With a stunning countryside location and landscaped grounds it makes the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs. Our romantic wedding Barn also has a silk-lined 800 sq ft marquee which can accommodate up to 150 guests.

Take the stress out of your Wedding Day preparations

With the Wedding Barn available to you from 9am Friday until 12 noon on Sunday for a Saturday wedding, there is plenty of time to make sure all of your plans are set in place before your big day arrives.

Having the whole day before your wedding to access the barn means you can bring in your reception drinks, seating plan and place names and take the time to enjoy the calm setting and peace and quiet at Smeetham Hall while you make those all-important final adjustments. Your florist and your chosen caterer will have the time they need on the Friday to make their final preparations in the Barn. You can then leave Smeetham Hall Barn feeling relaxed and knowing that all your wedding day preparations have been made, the Barn is ready for you and your wedding guests and that your big day is going to be the wonderful day you planned it to be.

Our wedding barn can seat between 30 and 150 wedding guests and has a large dance area with plenty of room to dance the night away to the band or DJ. of your choice.

Our marquee stands within a sheltered courtyard and is perfect as an area to chat to your guests with drinks and canapés or is ideal for barbecues and hog roasts for the more informal wedding receptions.

Our list of local wedding caterers can provide anything from a simple wedding buffet to a full 6-course meal.

Drinks from our bar are charged at local pub prices (with no charge for staff) or you can supply your own champagne/wine/soft drinks for the day prior to our bar opening after the wedding breakfast.

As this is your wedding day, we let you decide how your day should be. We will offer as much help and advice as you would like but we encourage our brides and grooms to take the lead by expressing themselves in their wedding reception plans thus making it truly their special day.

From the arrangement of flowers to the time the wedding photographer takes the pictures our couples are in complete control. We simply make sure their wedding day goes to plan.

Smeetham Hall benefits from an idyllic location in the heart of the Essex countryside, yet thanks to excellent transport links, we are within easy reach of London, Hertfordshire, Suffolk and Kent. It truly is one of the most stunning wedding venues in Essex.
