Tell us a little about the history of this beautiful venue.
Nestled in the Essex countryside, That Amazing Place (also known as ‘Hubbards Hall’) was originally built in the 15th century as a monastery. For many years this grade II listed hidden gem was occupied as a residential property, until its current owners decided to renovate and re-open it as the beautifully elegant venue that it is today. It has been a wedding venue for two years now, hosting 50 to 70 weddings a year on average.

Outdoor ceremonies can take place under our beautiful gazebo next to the lake and, available in 2018, couples can host their wedding breakfast in our marquee.
