Wake Venue in Essex

Losing a loved one is an extremely difficult time, so why not let us take the worry out of organising a wake to celebrate their life? At the Old Rectory in Brentwood, we have arranged many wakes. As a result, we have an excellent understanding of the sensitivities of such an event. Our experienced team are thoughtful and we’ll do all we can to ensure that the day goes smoothly. We’ll be on hand to guide you from start to finish, leaving you comfortable that all is being taken care of and free to focus on celebrating the life of your loved one.

We can help you to select the type of menu you would like for the wake, providing you with plenty of options. Our skilled chefs can create food for a light post-funeral gathering, buffet style food, or even plated service if you’d prefer a more formal sit-down meal.

We had our wedding at The Old Rectory on Sunday 28th May. It’s an amazing, beautiful venue and, thanks to Tina, Craig and all of staff we had the most perfect day.
