Orsett Hall Hotel


Orsett Hall Hotel



Set against the backdrop of 12 acres of landscaped gardens in the Essex countryside, Orsett Hall wedding venue make for truly romantic occasions. With a beautiful chapel and several spacious function venues, as well as, an on-site bridal shop, a hair...salon, a full-service spa, luxurious cars for hire and a florist, our hotel provides a bespoke approach for all of your wedding-related needs. We are also sensitive to the requirements of our guests planning cultural weddings, and offer facilities for outside caterers when preferred.

Our team of Wedding Planners understand that every wedding is unique and offer both packages and a bespoke alternative to ensure all of your ideas and desires are met.

Licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies, Orsett Hall has a beautiful Chapel located in the grounds, a new outside Wedding Gazebo and a choice of stunning Reception rooms. Our function suites are fully wheelchair accessible and can accommodate as many as 520 seated guests; we also offer facilities for couples whose religious or cultural backgrounds or beliefs require more strict control of their wedding arrangements (including outside catering).

Situated in a private and quiet corner of the grounds, the Chapel is licensed to conduct religious and non-religious wedding ceremonies, as well as civil partnerships. Its stunning interior resembles something out of a fairy tale and must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. Designed in soothing pastel tones and framed by elegant white beams covered in white flowers, the Chapel offers traditional seating and a large balcony where additional guests can be seated and music can be played. There is a lovely pathway from the main hotel to the Chapel, and if the weather is unkind we are happy to drive the wedding party the short distance. No other venue in Essex offers anything like our Chapel.
