Here is some history of this wonderful Essex wedding venue. In 1220 Sir Ralph Gernon decided that the hamlet of Leez, in a dip by the banks of the River Ter, would provide the perfect location on which to found his monastery. His Augustinian priory thrived for over 300 years until King Henry VIII sent Sir Richard Rich to dismiss the monastery. When Sir Richard Rich became the Earl of Warwick, he built his own great house on the site that is now known as Leez Priory.
In the late 1980s, Leez Priory was purchased by its current owners, The Country House Weddings group. In May 1995, Leez Priory became the first country house in England to be granted a licence to conduct civil ceremonies. Leez Priory was also featured in an episode of the BBC TV programme, Lovejoy.
