Outdoor Weddings in Kent

From our waterside oak gazebo

Discover perhaps the most idyllic backdrop for outdoor weddings in Kent. You’ll find the 16th century Ferry House wedding venue beside the Swale estuary, nestled between two wetland bird reserves, surrounded by rolling farmland, wild meadows and coastal beauty. Say ‘I do’ in the open-air overlooking the water from our elegant Oak Gazebo. Set within our private wedding terrace surrounded by landscaped gardens, it’s a location truly worthy of the best day of your life.

Meanwhile fabulous dining options from our award-winning chefs use our homegrown, family-farmed and local Harty Estate produce, while luxurious accommodation for up to 70+ guests and our personal wedding planning service ensure your wedding is all you ever hoped for – and more.

Outdoor Weddings From Our Oak Gazebo

Our Oak Gazebo couldn’t be more beautifully situated with the estuary as its backdrop. Outdoor weddings are held here between April-October and can seat up to 200 guests on the private wedding terrace. After your ceremony the terrace and private landscaped weddings garden lend a relaxed and romantic vibe to your Drinks Reception – one that you and your guests will savour and remember for many years to come.

Wedding Dining

Dining is a special part of your wedding day.

You and your guests can even explore our Kitchen Garden if you wish! It certainly makes for some unique and beautiful photo opportunities. A first anniversary meal at our award-winning 2AA Rosette restaurant is included in your wedding package.

Getting Wedding Ready

You and your other half can get aisle ready in our two readying rooms - The Garden Lodge and The Powder Room - as part of your wedding package. There's large illuminated mirrors, styling stations, dressing and seating areas, making getting glammed a dream. Both rooms are located away from each other, so there’s no danger of spoiling that first aisle-sight. The Garden Lodge in particular benefits from its secluded setting in our 1.5 acre Kitchen Garden, complete with a private terrace for a moment of fresh air and calm to help settle any big day nerves.
