Great Priory Barn Essex


We had a most wonderful wedding celebration and ceilidh at your barn. it is an amazing, atmospheric space, with stunning high beams, which we decorated with fairy light, bunting and wild flowers to make a magical setting surrounded by countryside. You were most helpful and accommodating of our wishes and always responded promptly to our questions.Anna and Sarah

Stunning location and beautiful barn. We had such an amazing day at the barn and many of our guests commented on the stunning location. The team at the barn were very helpful and flexible start to finish which enabled us to create the wedding that we wanted. Would not hesitate to hire again for another event.Alex

The Great Priory Barn is a truly beautiful, rustic and raw venue. Like us, if you are looking for something to make your own. Look no further! The barn has charm, history and is set in an idilic setting just minutes from Braintree. We had everything at the venue including a band and catering company and nothing was too much trouble for the owner, Lucy. We had a truly amazing day and would recommend the barn to anyone!Lee

We wanted our wedding to be informal and fun so we were so pleased we knew about Great Priory Barn. The ceremony in a secretive clearing in the woods was magical, like something from a fairytale. The barn was perfect as a relaxed venue for the hog roast that doubled up as a great dance party location when the band started. As it’s a venue that only does a handful of weddings each year it felt really personal and a world away from some of the more formal wedding venues we had seen elsewhere in Essex that felt like wedding factories. Our friends and family mucked in to help decorate the barn and then do the tidy up the next day and Lucy was really accommodating in letting us personalise the space and have access to the barn in the days before and after the wedding. The barn is a very special place indeed. We loved it.Verity

The ancient but beautifully restored barn helps create a relaxed and unpretentious rustic atmosphere.Its accoustics were perfect for our wonderful live musicians.With spectacular views over sprawling north Essex countryside, it is particularly apt as a venue for anyone who loves the area.Lucy is welcoming and professional and helped make the day so perfect that we wanted to do it all again! Thank you Lucy.Abigaul
