About Prested Hall

Set in acres of Parkland in Colchester, with a gorgeous moat as your backdrop, our award winning Manor House Wedding Venue is yours exclusively. We are licensed for ceremonies, with an option, weather permitting, for an outdoor ceremony.

Prested Hall is discreetly hidden down a long drive in 75 acres of parkland, just off the A12 between Chelmsford and Colchester.

There's something truly romantic about this part-moated 15th century manor house and its mature trees, tranquil setting and bridge leading over the moat into the fields beyond. The little gazebo at the end of the bridge offers the perfect backdrop for memorable wedding photos.

We offer you exclusive use of The Hall with its 14 lovely bedrooms so you can stay overnight with your immediate friends and family.

The handsome reception areas include The Oak Room (an 18th century room with a magnificent fire place and stained glass windows), The Garden Room, the elegant large Orangery overlooking the moat, and a marquee in summer. All three rooms are licensed for civil ceremonies as well as The Gazebo outside. The Dingle, a former chapel, is a luxurious bridal suite for those couples preferring to stay just a stroll from The Hall. Prested is known for its caring staff, great food and relaxed atmosphere. Just a stone's throw away from The Hall is The Health Club and Spa, with impressive fitness, health and beauty departments, there is something to suit everyone's needs.

Once the party is over, Prested couples can retire for the night. Join your house guests for a leisurely breakfast the next morning before driving off under the trees to your new life together.

Customer Reviews

I cant praise the staff at prested hall enough, they were amazing on mine and my wife's wedding day, from start to finish professional and helpful, especially Gemma our events manager she was well organised efficient and took the stress away, we have been to prested hall for parties, afternoon tea, dinner and had no doubt to book our wedding there if you want a venue that ticks every box then this is it.

My husband and I got married at Prested Hall on 17th September 2016. It was the perfect day in a perfect venue. We attended one of their wedding fairs about 2 years before the big day and attended most fairs after that. We always received a warm welcome at these events and whenever we took family/friends to look around. About 6 months before the wedding we were introduced to Kathryn, our events organiser. Kathryn was amazing, she helped and supported us from then until the big day. She made those last 6 months of planning effortless and ensured the big day went smoothly from start to finish. We couldn't thank Kathryn and her team enough for all their help and support, nothing was too much trouble. We had wanted to get married outside in the halls stunning grounds, but on the morning of our wedding Mother Nature had other ideas. This was not a problem for Kathryn and her team who effortlessly ensured the garden room was set up beautifully in order for us to exchange our vows. Our guests all commented on how wonderful the venue was, the food was amazing and how it was the best wedding they had been too. The attention to detail and the services offered at Prested hall are fantastic. The added bonus of having rooms in the house and the apartments at the spa, meant we were able to have breakfast with close family and friends the next morning. We used some of the halls recommended suppliers: Complete Entourage, Smooch rings, Tim from Silver Sparks Mobile Disco, Oakwood Strjng Quartet and Sam (Beautiful You). All did wonderful jobs and helped make our day perfect. All in all we had the perfect day and we would highly recommend Prested Hall to anyone looking for a venue for their wedding. The only downside was the day went far too quickly! If we could, we would do the whole day all over again.
