Wedding Venues in Essex – East Mersea Hall
The History of East Mersea Hall
East Mersea Hall is a stunning Elizabethan manor house dating back to the 16th century. Historically, ‘The Hall’ was surrounded by a moat due to its origin as a fortified settlement and the lake which today is one of the key features of the hall is the remains of the original moat. The Hall is set in 36 acres of land consisting of established gardens and 7 acres of maturing woodland providing an idyllic setting for romantic photographs. As a venue the Hall can cater for most types of ceremonies from Church weddings through to Civil ceremonies and blessings. An added uniqueness of East Mersea Hall is the close proximity of St. Edmunds Church which can be accessed via private pathways from the Hall.
East Mersea Hall is located on Mersea Island – with the island lying between the estuaries of the rivers Colne and Blackwater and is deservedly regarded as a place to visit as it is separated from the mainland by the picturesque Pyefleet channel and reached by an ancient causeway called the ‘Strood’. The island is steeped in much history and many centuries ago the isolation of Mersea was an intricate factor in its attraction for the Danes who reputedly first settled at East Mersea Hall to give them somewhere to take a break from the exhausting work of pillaging Anglo-Saxons on the mainland.
East Mersea Hall is an exceptional house with outstanding grounds and the uniqueness of its island setting makes it an ideal venue for weddings, civil ceremonies, blessings and christenings.
