The Old Rectory Wedding Fayre

Good Evening All & Welcome back to Eyeful Events, today i’m actually event’ing (it’s been a while, I know.. Sorry)

This is predominately a venue review but it’s mostly an invitation for you come down to upcoming wedding fayre here at The Old Rectory on the 4th March 2018.

Bring your families, friends, bridal/groom party and whoever else you could possibly bring along.

For the price of £0 you get a glass of bubbly on arrival, you’ll get to indulge yourself in the beautiful grounds of the venue and see for yourself how wonderful it is inside as well as outside.
Have a feel for the space and check out the classic bedrooms that will be available to you and your guests on your special occasion. Create a mental picture of your special day here, find out what packages are available and check out the fantastic menu options.


You’re more than welcome to pass by throughout the day, between 10am and 4pm.
You’ll have a chance to meet all of the suppliers that The Old Rectory often work with and have arranged to exhibit at the venue in order for you to get some inspiration and hopefully start planning your dream day.

The Old Rectory have organised suppliers from all angles of the industry to help you with all the things you’ll need and most importantly the things you want. Browsing online, sending emails and back and forth phone calls are quite frustrating after doing it 10 or so times, because I can assure you it will take 100 x more… I would recommend getting yourself down to speak to the professionals, see what’s on offer and emerse yourself in the wedding environment.

On the 11th March our beloved Mothers Day…If you’re stuck for ideas and not quite sure what to do then come and enjoy a cosy carvery and some entertainment for £30pp (Under 13’s £15) You can relax and enjoy the surroundings in the beautiful surroundings.

The Old Rectory

Lower Dunton Road, Dunton, Brentwood, CM13 3SW


Is an enchanting manor house situated down a stretched drive way in-between the lovely Essex country side, everything around it is homely and traditional. You see farmers land and even get to see the animals passing by. The area is wonderfully peaceful and feels somewhat inaccessible by other people who aren’t you or your guests.

All year round; Snowy winters, Blooming Spring, Bright Summer days and Crispy Colourful Autumn it is a simply perfect setting for any occasion.


The manor has climbing flowering vines, beautiful greenery and a desirable wooden gazebo that is perfect for a summer wedding or if you’re feeling brave any other time of the year (Our British weather is far from predictable so you could have a lovely summers day in December) and an outdoor event would be great.

What I love so much about the The Rectory’s outdoors is that there’s some really lovely features; a private wooden swinging chair amongst draped trees and an intriguing brick wishing well.
A key component of these grounds is the picturesque fish pond with a little bridge crossing over to a private bench * Photo Opportunity*

It really is a charming backdrop for all of your photos whatever type of event you have here, especially a dream wedding




What’s so great here is that the venue is fully licensed to get officially married here so it’s not just a reception space, you can have it all here from start to finish.
There’s more than meets the eye, it’s not just a venue it provides exclusive hotel accommodation; there’s a mixture of rooms from bridal suites, double rooms, twin rooms and even family rooms. The hospitality here is brilliant; experiencing it from both ends as a guest and as an employer.

Back down into the main space you can comfortably accommodate 150 people throughout the day. Your catering options are completely at your preference and can have anything from a buffet to a hog roast, BBQ or a traditional three course meal all of great quality and fine tastes. Moving on into the reception you can of course increase your invitation list and have a great space to dance and sign the night away.

Although The Rectory is beautiful as it is, it’s pretty much a blank canvas so you can adapt your own unique style to create your dream wedding/event.


Behind the scenes of The Old Rectory is like a big family, everyone has been around one another for a long long time, as I previously mentioned its been part of my life for over 10 years. I think this is massively important in a venue like this as you can really tell by the atmosphere and the happiness of the staff that it is a great place to be.

Unfortunately I don’t have any personal photos of every area of the venue but the link above will take you directly to the site and everything will be found on there, better yet organise a viewing and see this place for yourself.

I’ve taken a lot of time to write a review about this place because it does mean so much to me, it is one of my favourite places but I am holding your best interest in my own heart and know you or someone you know would have your dream day here.

  1. What a beautiful venue, My brother had his wedding here last year and it was just fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone, It’s great they are doing more events at the venue, mothers day looks sweet (food was also amazing)


  2. There is only one word for this…..stunning, I’m getting married here in May and absolutely fell in love with it on first sight having already viewed several other places beforehand, we came away saying we would talk about it and booked within half an hour of leaving, the help is amazing and no question so far has been a problem to answer x
