    Detailed Description

    Three times winner of Wedding Ideas Magazine ‘Best Wedding Venue’, Leez Priory’s magnificent Tudor mansion is one of the most sought after wedding venues in the country and has twenty six years of experience in providing perfect weddings. Set in 40 acres of parkland, with lakes, lawns and a sweeping driveway, Leez Priory as an exclusive use wedding venue for your perfect day.

    Leez Priory also boasts 15 beautiful bedrooms which are exclusively reserved for you on your wedding night as well as a hidden cottage within the grounds for the Bride and Bridesmaids to stay in the night before the big day.

    Civil ceremonies can be performed in any of seven licensed settings including the stunning Great Tower which stands adjacent to the main house and outside beneath the carriageway for a truly unique setting.


    - Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
    It would be impossible to single out one wedding! We work incredibly hard to ensure that every couple feels like the first couple to be wed at the Priory and that it is special and personal to them so they are all different in their own way!
    - What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
    Get your venue and your date booked first. So many other details will naturally fall into place once this is decided that it will make it a lot easier to make decisions.
    - What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
    Our couples receive exclusive use of the entire house and it is always lovely when they really take over and make it their home for the day. Family photos on the window sills and mantle piece and guests wandering and relaxing at their leisure throughout the day.
