About Smeetham Hall Barn
This 16th Century converted barn is a truly amazing wedding venue near Sudbury which is situated on the Essex/Suffolk border. Licensed for civil ceremonies, this is a wonderful wedding venue choice. Set up from the day before.
Our wedding venue at Smeetham Hall Barn benefits from an idyllic location in the heart of the Essex countryside. Yet, thanks to excellent transport links, we are within easy reach of London, Hertfordshire, Suffolk and Kent.
The barn has been beautifully converted into the most stunning of venues for civil ceremonies, wedding receptions, parties and dances.
The bride and groom have access to the Barn from the day before the wedding giving plenty of time to check that everything is in place and just how they would want it to be.
Our Estate offers fantastic photo opportunities including wild flower meadows, woodland avenues and a lakeside setting.
We are a family run business offering a highly personalised service. Please take a look at our virtual tour on our website and we then look forward to welcoming you here.
