Our stunning, 16th century converted wedding barn is the most perfect, romantic wedding venue in Essex.

Located in Sudbury, on the borders of Suffolk and Essex, Smeetham Hall has been the Hyde Parker family residence since 1906. Although still a working farm, Smeetham Hall is considered one of the leading wedding venues in Essex and is widely known for its wedding barn and beautiful, picturesque grounds

Set in the rural retreat of the countryside around North Essex, our wedding barn is also easily accessible from Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Kent and the Greater London areas.

Smeetham Hall Barn can be hired for civil ceremonies and same-sex marriages followed by a wedding reception, a wedding reception only following a church service or simply for a civil ceremony only. We have a wide range of local suppliers who can offer you their wedding services and have experience of our wedding venue to make the planning of your big day as easy as possible. We also have a range of special offers available throughout the year to help keep your wedding on budget.

We welcome future brides and grooms to come and visit Smeetham Hall Barn and take a look for themselves at our perfect English country wedding setting and we have a large gallery of wedding photographs taken in our grounds for them to enjoy.
