The Community Room

The Community Room

Benefiting from natural daylight the room is bright and airy due to its neutral decor…

…and provides a fantastic view onto the High Street. It comes equipped with a small sound system as well as use of the main lay by on the High Street at the front of the Town Hall. Artificial flowers are available upon request.

The Community Room is our basic suite where we can offer a number of enhancements to ensure you receive the highest level of service at an affordable price.

This room is for ceremonies only and we are unable to offer any wedding breakfasts or receptions. Photographs are restricted to the reception area only due to other events and weddings taking place on other floors. Any upgrades ordered are non-refundable and non-transferable.

To book this room, contact us on 01206 506905 to check the availability, where we will then provisionally book you in.

You will then need to speak to the Essex County Council Registry Service on 0345 603 7632 – option 1, where the team will book the Registrars for your preferred date providing they have availability. Secondly, they will book in your notice of marriage. They will also take all deposits and payments.

Details

The Community Room is situated on the ground floor of the Town Hall…

…and can be accessed via the cast iron gates from the main entrance and turning left. There are male and female toilets on this level, as well as a disabled toilet and baby changing facilities.

We were really looked after at the Town Hall when we had our wedding ceremony there in November. The team were really helpful in helping us prepare all the little details of the ceremony, from music and flowers, to the legalities and timings.

On the actual day we were both so nervous, more than we had anticipated, but the staff put us at ease and were really helpful throughout. All of our guests commented on the beautiful Council Chamber where we got married – it had all the unique beauty of a church wedding but without the religious connotations, plus a really intimate setting for our 65 guests. A day we will never forget!
