The Meadow - Our Festival Wedding Venue

A unique opportunity to be married in tranquil countryside surroundings and then party under the tipis

The beautiful Meadow, our outdoor wedding venue, offers couples the opportunity to hold an open air country wedding within the legal requirements of the Essex County Council Registration Service. The pavilion is skilfully designed to blend into the fine open Essex countryside situated on the banks of a river.

Tipis, firepits, fairy lights, straw bales, glitter artists, catering trucks, gin tuk tuks and cider tents ( just some of our ideas!) can be organised to complete your festival wedding vision. 

Overnight camping is allowed at all Festival Weddings on The Meadow.  Let your guests party under the stars and as bride and groom, you get to stay in the Bridal Suite Glamping pod.

Transport to The Meadow for your festival wedding

Guests can be transported to The Meadow on decorated tractors and trailers as part of the countryside experience.  Overnight parking is also available by the meadow and cars can be left overnight. 

Immediately after the ceremony, the happy couple may enjoy a tranquil and romantic boat ride along the river before joining their guests on the hay bales outside the tipis.

Our outdoor wedding venue is licensed for all civil ceremonies.

The Great British Weather!

Please note: it is always the decision of the Superintendent Registrar on duty on the day of the wedding to decide whether the ceremony can be held outside. If the decision is not to go ahead, then the ceremony will take place in the Ceremony Room at The Reid Rooms and a full refund of The Meadow Pavilion charges will be given.

Thank you for making our special day, the best day of our lives. It was just perfect.
