Comments from Paul Martin:
The Fennes Estate is a country Georgian House set in 100 acres of Essex Countryside. With its graceful d├ęcor coupled with a warm friendly welcome the Fennes offers an atmosphere that is elegant, tranquil and of course exclusively yours for the entire day.

Within the house itself there are spacious reception rooms which are entirely at your disposal throughout your stay with us. As well as the house there are two Pavilions, both of which are silk-lined, fully heated as well as air-conditioned with the main one adjoining the house by an elegant walkway.

There are two rooms licensed for civil ceremonies, one being our beautiful drawing room for a small and intimate service, this seats approx 40 guests or our Pavilions for much larger ceremonies of 40 to 400.

I thoroughly enjoyed the occassion of photographing a wedding in the autumn at this beautiful estate. The entrance to the house and the rooms with ornate period features provided situations for creative photographs, particularly bride & groom portraits. Equally impressive were the carefully groomed gardens, which along with the small pond and the distinct colours in the foliage, provided a vivid reminder of the seasonal aspect of this wedding. The Fennes Estate is another ‘hidden gem’ of a venue, suitable for weddings, parties and any other social event. The opportunity for producing memorable wedding photography at The Fennes Estate is immense.
