The perfect setting for your dream wedding with beautiful gardens, Grand Hall, gorgeous Orangery and Wedding Gazebo - all exclusively yours!

Established in 1993, The Lawn, Rochford, is one of the most sought-after and consistently highly rated wedding venues in Essex, and with good reason.

Voted as one of the ten most romantic venues in the country, the magnificent Manor House, stylish Orangery and beautiful grounds provide a stunning backdrop against which to celebrate your special day. Whether you opt for an outdoor ceremony in our delightful wedding gazebo with its double-tiered cedar roof, the splendour of an entrance down our sweeping staircase for a ceremony in the galleried Grand Hall or simply wish to enjoy your wedding reception at The Lawn, you and your guests will not fail to be impressed.

The layout of the Manor House lends itself to entertaining with the Blue Drawing Room, dance floor, Bar (there is also a Terrace Bar in the Summer) and Orangery all adjoining The Grand Hall which remains the heart of the party throughout the Big Day.

The high level of service from the enormously experienced and friendly events and hospitality team along with the superb catering and sensitivity to customer needs is all second to none.

Please call the Events Team on 01702 203669 to arrange a viewing of this truly lovely venue.

Meet the Owner

David Keddie

Hello and welcome to our beautiful venue! The Lawn has been owned by my family for over 80 years and has been one of the most loved and popular wedding venues in the county for 27 of those years. We have worked hard to retain the comfortable and welcoming feel of a Manor House home whilst constantly looking at ways to improve and update the venue; be it the addition of a gorgeous Orangery for the wedding breakfast or creating a beautiful secluded area of garden centred around our lovely double-tiered cedar roofed wedding Gazebo where you really can enjoy the charm of an English country garden. We have a hugely experienced team (we all have run well over 1000 weddings each) and all share the same ethos - we take our work personally and endeavour to give that little bit extra to make the day truly memorable for all the right reasons. We are as involved or as uninvolved as you wish; we support and guide but do not dictate. It is your day and we will do everything possible to ensure it goes the way you want it to with the minimum of fuss. I am particularly proud of our catering where our highly experienced and talented chefs lovingly prepare all the wedding breakfasts and buffets from scratch in our own kitchens and with the finest ingredients. With everything created on the premises, it is also possible to go a little “off piste” should our large menu selection not cater exactly to your individual needs - our chefs love a challenge! Our reviews, ‘thank you’s’ and testimonials tell their own story and speak volumes about the venue, the catering and the levels of service. We want your Big Day to be perfect and you have my personal assurance that we will do everything possible to ensure that it is. We look forward to hearing from you.
