Whether you’re planning a civil ceremony, civil partnership or church ceremony, we treat every wedding uniquely, working in partnership to make your wedding dreams come true.

We’re delighted to be licensed to hold both civil ceremonies and civil partnerships for up to 100 guests. We offer a choice of beautiful spaces for your ceremony, allowing you to be married in one of our stunning period rooms or outside in our expansive grounds.

During the British summertime, weather permitting, you also have the choice of one of our outside ceremony settings; the grand Great Hall steps or our Hatton Fruit Garden.

The beautiful outdoor Hatton Fruit Garden provides a charming Kentish countryside ceremony space with a ‘secret garden’ feel, offering far-reaching views over orchards and the grounds of the house.
