Welcome to The Marquee at Rettendon Lodge

The Marquee at The Rettendon Lodge is an exclusive Wedding and Party Venue,
licensed for civil ceremonies, offering bar and banqueting facilities, and accommodation.

Set in the Essex countryside, we believe that no marquee venue lends itself quite
so perfectly to a country wedding or party venue than The Lodge.



From your first consultation until your final guests depart on your special day, you will be looked after by your own Event Manager, banqueting and bar team.
On arrival your guests are welcome to use the facilities at The Rettendon Lodge before being welcomed by your Event Manager.

About Us


We offer a unique service, where you get to choose the tempo of your special event.
Maybe you would like a formal drinks reception in our VIP courtyard before an informal party in our stunning marquee, a themed event, a corporate or charity event; or simply somewhere you can gather all your friends and family together.

100 per cent recommend The Lodge

Made us feel at ease the whole time and it showed throughout the wedding.
Our whole day was perfect!
Will miss you lots, but one thing I can say is if anyone is looking to book a venue, look no further.
Will 100% recommend The Lodge as you will not be disappointed. Thank you again to Jane, Ann and all the team xxx.
