Congratulations on your engagement and a warm welcome to Cressing Temple Barns and its stunning Tudor Walled Garden!

Cressing Temple has an outstanding historical background, dating back to as early as the iron and bronze ages, but is best known for its 13th Century Templar built barns originating in the 1200s and beautifully restored in 1987. On your wedding day we can offer you either or both of the magnificent barns, as well as the Tudor Walled Garden and our recently renovated Evening Barn for your wedding day.

With exclusive use of the venue, you can choose your idyllic setting from three options to host your ceremony, including our beautiful Tudor Walled Garden, followed by the Barley Barn for your Wedding Breakfast. Reception drinks can be offered in the Walled Garden, leaving the Evening Barn for your Reception for the remainder of your day. The Evening Barn is suitable for up to 60 guests and up to 200 with the addition of a marquee.

If you would like to find out more information or arrange a viewing, please call us and we will be delighted to discuss your requirements in more detail.
