Cressing Temple is a historic site set in the heart of Essex and a popular location for weddings.

The site dates back to the 12th century and is home to the two finest Templar barns in Europe. These stunning barns provide the perfect backdrop for any wedding, civil partnership or renewal of vows.

Cressing's 17th century Farmhouse provides a peaceful environment for the bride-to-be to make her final preparations and the beautiful Tudor Walled Garden is an ideal backdrop for those all important photographs.

A range of packages are available, from ceremony only to a full day wedding package.

As part of the changes with Celebrate in Essex, Cressing Temple is now one of 9 chosen locations to hold more intimate community weddings from April 2016. The Registry Office details can be found here http://www.celebrateinessex.co.uk/Ceremony/Default.aspx

For weddings in the barns, Walled Garden and receptions, the contact details are for Pink Butterfly and they can be contacted at enquiries@cressingbarns.co.uk
