Leez Priory Essex Wedding Venue
Nestled in the Essex countryside is the Tudor Mansion known as Leez Priory which was founded as an Augustinian priory in about 1220 by Sir Ralph Gernon. In 1536 the priory was suppressed during Henry VIII’s Dissolution of the Monasteries and the property was granted to Sir Richard Rich, one of the King’s key advisors. You can read more about the history of this stunning estate here.
The weather for our pre-wedding venue visit was a little cold and overcast, but if a venue can shine on a dull day you definitely know it will shine on your wedding day, no matter what the weather brings. Which is just as well when you consider the wedding we photographed there was a dull wet day as well, but we knew from our previous visit we would still get beautiful photos for our wonderful couple.
There is a wide choice of locations for your ceremony, whether it be indoors or outdoors.
The Coach House makes a lovely setting for your wedding breakfast and is only a short walk from the main house. Leez priory has so much to offer with your sit down meal also able to take place in the Grand Hall for a more intimate setting.
There is also a choice of indoor areas for you and your guests to sit and relax during the day too.
Bridal preparations take place in your own private wing of the main house away from prying eyes.
Beautiful landscaped gardens provide the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos. We even found crocuses and daffodils starting to shoot in the gardens on one of our visits.
And once evening descends, you can dance the night away in the converted cellars.
Leez priory looks just as beautiful lit up at night as it does during the day as well giving you the option of even more photos to add to your memories.
