About Prested Hall wedding venue

A Country House Hotel and Wedding Venue That's Just That Little Bit Different

A very warm welcome awaits you at Prested Hall. Unstuffy and relaxing, this beautiful manor house is the perfect place for your wedding day and overnight. Invite your friends and family to stay (the main house has 14 bedrooms), and let Prested’s wonderful staff take care of every detail.

Prested Hall is a stylish country manor house set in beautiful parkland, at the end of a long leafy drive, near the A12 Kelvedon exit (just south of Colchester). Our magical grounds are a mix of water and lush lawns, with a period gazebo and bridge - all of which offer opportunities for stunning wedding photographs.

Dating from the 15th century, Prested Hall has several elegant reception rooms, each with unique features. The choice of where to hold your ceremony, your wedding breakfast and your evening celebrations is entirely down to you; and our staff will prepare each space just for you. During the summer months you can choose the traditional marquee on the lawn or you can even get married under our picturesque Gazebo.

Breakfast with your guests the next morning is a special bonus for Prested couples and a lovely way to end a memorable occasion.

As well as the stylish and comfortable bedrooms in The Hall, we also have a luxury room available in the hotel grounds for those couples who want something extra special. The Dingle is a wonderful retreat with its own seating area and a small private garden, making it the perfect spot for escape and privacy.

For that all important pre-wedding pampering, Prested’s Elemis spa and health club offer a range of pre-wedding beauty and fitness packages.

There is also further accommodation for wedding guests in the health club building, a short stroll away from The Hall.
