Civil Ceremony & Civil Partnerships

Our Essex Suite is situated on ground level and can accommodate up to 140 for a civil ceremony. Panelled in oak the room gives a bright and welcoming atmosphere and creates an ecclesiastical feel. It also benefits from a sound system where we can play music of your choice for the ceremony.
