So many of our guests, even our photographer has said The Old Kent Barn is the best wedding venue they have ever been to! Claire and her team are incredible, they gave us the most perfect day. They couldn't have done more for us, each touch made our day the best it could have been. From the first phone call... More

we were wedding guests here & were really impressed by this lovely venue. The organisation & smoothness of the event by the staff was perfect and it made for a really enjoyable day. Accomodation at nearby Premiere Inn was convenient for an overnight stay.

Emily, Claire and the team were so helpful from the moment we booked the venue. Always on hand to answer my questions (and I had a... More

This is the most idyllic place I can think of to have a wedding. The setting is beautiful. It is an ideal venue to get married, party and stay all in one place. Certainly also makes it a lot easier for guests. All of the guests agreed that it was the most perfect setting. The owners did everything possible to... More

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
