Absolutely fabulous, the perfect wedding for our daughter. All of the guests remarked on what a beautiful venue The Old Kent Barn is. And, the facilitators and staff were brilliant, a special 'thank you' to Emily. A huge amount of thought, time and effort went into creating the wedding day and everything went off without a hitch. Nothing was too... More

My daughter and her new husband married at the Old Kent Barn on the 1st August. We had visited The Barn (after researching many other places) a year before to see one of their open days and were in no doubt that this was the venue our couple wanted. The owners and staff were helpful and willing to accommodate our... More

We got married at the Old Kent Barn on 15th June 2014 and it was truly the best day of our lives. It was overwhelmingly perfect and beautiful and my husband and I had to take a moment to take it all in. Photos don't do the venue justice, you have to see it in person. The staff especially Emily...

Emily and Huw, who looked after my son's wedding, are simply amazing. Though young, they are completely professional and on top of things. I had no doubt in my mind, after meeting Emily at a pre-wedding meeting, that things would go perfectly. She instilled such a sense of confidence that I was confident that she knew exactly what she was... More

Our wedding was always going to be a simple affair with minimal planning, so we decided it was best to do this abroad until someone suggested we saw The Old Kent Barn, so we did and we never looked back. My husband and I were completely blown away by the Barn so much so, we opted to get married this... More

My daughter chose this venue for her wedding, and last Saturday her dream came true when from start to finish her day was perfect, but this is only part of the story. Wedding preparations often begin a long time before 'the big day itself,' and I can honestly say that Hilary, Roger and the team gave her every confidence that... More

My husband and I got married at The Old Kent Barn on 3rd August, we could not have wished for a more perfect day. The venue itself is stunning and all of our guests were blown away by it, but the real selling point are Hilary, Claire and everyone else at the barn. Their calm nature and organisation helped our...

Wow, the old Kent barn is a superb venue for a wedding. My daughter and son in law were married there last Saturday and I cannot thank Hilary and the team enough.
