The Rayleigh Club is an elegant and spacious wedding venue located in the beautiful countryside of Essex situated between Chelmsford and Southend-on-Sea. The team of dedicated staff want to help make your wedding and all the events leading up to it 'a pleasurable experience', after all it is something to be enjoyed not dread.

They will help you create 'a truly bespoke celebration and exceed your hopes and expectations' with a committed wedding planner to help throughout all stages - from initial consultation up to the big day itself. They have earned a reputation as one of the finest wedding venues in the south east. The Rayleigh Club has two reception suites, a bridal suite, eight stylish deluxe and executive bedrooms and in-house catering from head chef, Ryan Adams, who will help you create the menu you've been dreaming of.


The Rayleigh Club changed ownership in spring 2016, which has led to its transformation with renovations and developments, making it one of the finest wedding venues in the south east.

It has 45 holes over both the south and east courses with a new nine hole par three course but also caters for parties, proms, baby showers, christenings, bar mitzvahs, charity balls, dinner dances, conferences and, of course, weddings as well as accommodating members and guests for dining, drinking and spending time with friends.

Head Chef Ryan Adams can provide advice and guidance on menu selection if you would like help. He can create anything from a divine three-course meal to an informal buffet using high-quality food and having an exceptional standard of service.

One example menu option would be to start with the delicious carrot and coconut soup followed by succulent roast pork with cider gravy, fondant potato, French beans and baton carrots, all topped off with a mouth-watering Bailey's torte served with rich chocolate sauce and tea or coffee.

There is a wealth of menu choices as well as the option of a buffet, canapes, late night snacks, reception drinks, children's menu, edible centrepieces, sorbets and cheese boards.


The Rayleigh Club has its own guest accommodation, which is at Hullbridge House located near the first tee of the South course. They have eight stylish and comfortable deluxe and executive rooms available that all have double beds and en-suite shower rooms.

Bridal Suite

There is a dedicated bridal suite situated on the second floor of Hullbridge House. It boasts a four poster, 7ft emperor bed with panoramic views of the grounds, a spacious balcony, en-suite bathroom and complimentary bottle of champagne on arrival.

They can also pick you up from the bridal suite on your wedding day and take you to the main club in their white, six-seater golf buggy - an alternative way to travel in style.

  • Mr and Mrs Hennessy – 01/10/2016

    We got married on the 1st of October at the Rayleigh club. The day was amazing and this was due to the whole team there. Professional, caring and helpful. Each part of our day went so very well. The wedding breakfast was delicious, all our guests said to us just how nice their meal was. We hired people that take part in the weddings there regularly, from cake maker to invitations to pianist to DJ, thank you to all of them. The accommodation is excellent as well. We would like to make a special thank you to Jennifer who is superb! We would recommend The Rayleigh club to anyone who is looking to get married in lovely surroundings with a very professional team . All the best for the future

  • A Happy Couple – 20/08/2016

    We got married at the Rayleigh Club on August 20th 2016. We had booked our wedding 3 years ago. The wedding was a Twilight Lords Package. Apart from the couple of issues between the Lords Package and the Rayleigh Club package there was no problem. These were however resolved to our satisfaction. In the build-up to our wedding, all our coordinators were very helpful. On the day Jenifer was our coordinator. She was excellent. Great person to work with. Took the stress away from us. All staff working on the night was fantastic. Very friendly and helpful people. No job was too small. Everything went according to plan. We stayed in the Bridal Suite on the night of the wedding. Was a lovely and beautiful room. Very comfortable and everything you would want for a night’s stay, however I wasn’t happy with the price. Overall I would definitely recommend the Rayleigh club to anyone looking to get married. We had the most amazing day of our lives.

  • Becky and Christopher Crump – 06/08/2016

    We would like to take the opportunity to send you the biggest thank you. Jennifer, you were amazing. You were a pleasure to talk to leading up to the day and made me feel really comfortable and on the day you were exceptional. You couldn't do enough for us and everything was absolutely perfect. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else in charge of our day. The food was excellent! And the bar staff I would like to thank too particularly the lady with the blonde curly hair as she went out of her way to ensure me and Chris always had a drink to hand, just a lovely friendly team. We really could not have asked for more. 10/10 for the Rayleigh club as much as I'm glad it's all over I genuinely just want to do it all over again was truly the best day of our lives made perfect by the right choice of venue. I cannot say thank you enough! Will be keeping an eye out for some of your events later in the year and will send over some photos that our photographer may have captured of the grounds for you once received. Thanks again.
