Jaywick Martello Tower on the Essex coast is ideal for couples on the lookout for a truly unique ceremony. The Martello Towers in Southern England were constructed in the early 19th century to protect the Essex and Kent coastline against French invasion. The restored example at Jaywick now operates as an arts and heritage site, licensed for civil ceremonies with up to 60 guests.
Jaywick Martello Tower is not only a distinctive ceremony venue, but with the Essex coastline spread out just beneath, is also the most gorgeous wedding location imaginable. The Sun Room at the top of the building is perfect for small ceremonies, with large windows overlooking the rolling waves of the English Channel. As alternatives, both the Garrison Room and the Martello Room are sited within the main body of the tower, boasting abundance of history and presenting the opportunity for larger ceremonies.
