Full Description
Friern Manor Country House Hotel, built in circa 1790, was transformed in the late 1980s to one of the county’s foremost exclusive hotels. Friern Manor was the first country house in England & Wales to hold a wedding ceremony under the new Act of parliament. Situated in the village of Dunton, just south of Brentwood, it is less than five minutes’ drive from the M25, giving easy access to all major routes. Set within four acres of beautifully landscaped and manicured grounds, Friern Manor boasts unrivalled facilities for wedding ceremonies within its unique setting. These luscious landscaped areas create a romantic setting and the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs. The classic Georgian Manor with its historic past has been owned by the family for the last quarter of a century. Over that time its reputation for exceptional service, friendliness and attentive service along with the establishment’s devotion to detail has enabled Friern Manor to become recognised as one of the county’s leading wedding establishments We pride ourselves on setting new standards and continually strive to meet the ever-varied demands of our clients. We believe that our role through the planning, organisation and delivery of your wedding should be about facilitating your ideas and concepts to achieve your requirements. So, whether you choose a traditional formal wedding or a chic modern twilight alternative, you can be assured, it will be memorable for all and executed with the passion synonymous with Friern Manor's reputation, all on a budget that will represent great value. We would be honoured to be trusted with your most important moments.

Everything was perfect
Our daughter got married at Friern Manor on the 2nd June 2019 and everything was perfect. They made a special day wonderful and everything was run with military precision and nothing was too much trouble, even with an unexpected guest. We would recommend the Manor for any occasion as I held my husbands 60th birthday there in January and there was again no faults.

My husband and I would Highly recommend Friern Manor!
Cannot thank the staff here enough. We Married in October 2019 and everything from booking to lead up and finally to the ‘big day’ was brilliant. Rebecca our wedding coordinator was particulary fab! Always answering big/small questions and on the day was so calm and supportive. Our Maitre D’ Matt was great on the night helping with basically everything and anything. Did a toast, introduced first dance and speech and just made everything so brilliant! Our Buffett was not just a Buffett all of the guests and ourselves were shocked at how great it was presented and tasted- sausage rolls are to die for! Our wedding was a twilight and just perfect. Wish we could do it al again. I could go on forever about all the positives, not one negative! Price was the best value around too! My husband and I would Highly recommend Friern Manor!

Thank you everybody you are fantastic don't ever change.
Fantastic I come over to the Manor in the morning to set up flowers and sweet table. The team of staff were already doing so much I couldn't believe it, tables laid, small touches being placed, so well organised I left in there hands to return at 12.30pm. On my return again so organised, staff on hand for any little thing, they couldn't do enough and so polite, we were being told what was happening every minute of the day it was like clockwork. The meal was superb, compliments to the chef and staff, even the breakfast the next morning, everything we wanted, fantastic. The room big, clean and tidy, lovely big bathroom and so quiet. Your staff weather, organising, serving, behind the bar, BBQ, moving tables, was polite, well mannered and so helpful. A credit to your business. Once again a big thank you for all you done for my daughters wedding, a day I will never forget because you and your staff made it so easy and relaxed and enjoyable. Thank you everybody you are fantastic don't ever change.
