As a Wedding Photographer in Essex I have been very fortunate to photograph at the gorgeous Leez Priory. Leez Priory lies between Chelmsford and Braintree along small country lanes. It is a well-maintained Grade I listed 16th Century Tudor Mansion and it was the first manor house in England to be granted a licence to conduct civil ceremonies. It now boasts 7 areas to choose from which have been licenced to perform civil ceremonies.
Leez Priory is set in 40 acres of parkland, and includes barns, lakes, cottages, lawns and a long driveway leading up to the manor. If you choose Leez Priory for your wedding you will have exclusive use of this venue, including 25 lovely bedrooms which are exclusively reserved for you, plus the Fisherman’s Cottage for the Bride and Bridesmaids to stay in the night before the big day.
