The Old Kent Barn

If you can’t decide what barn venue you want to get married in, why not choose a location with two? The Old Kent Barn is a 200-year-old oak-framed barn full of character and beams. It also has a luxurious bridal suite and two further double en suite rooms.

The design of the new barn, where receptions are held, is both opulent – the chandeliers have won an international design award – and neutral to co ordinate with any colour scheme or theme. It is oak-framed with large windows and an open-plan space. The colour scheme lends itself to any theme, from rustic to vintage, to modern and contemporary. There’s a light tiled floor throughout the venue including a solid wooden dancefloor and stage area, softened with ivory drapes and a magical starlit ceiling guiding you on to the floor for your first dance.

A fabulous dressing room is available for brides or grooms to arrive from 7.30 on the morning of the wedding to relax with their bridesmaids or groomsmen. The space has a shower room, enough dressing gowns for everyone, a digital TV, an iPod docking station, air-conditioning, lots of beautiful mirrors, a chaise longue, a fridge and, of course, attentive staff on hand to get you whatever you need.

Its grounds were professionally landscaped creating formal parterres with romantic roses, sweeping curved hedges and an informal lake garden with a fountain all set against a backdrop of mature trees and countryside. Set in the gardens is its classic wooden gazebo for outdoor ceremonies with a paved area in front for guests seating. The gardens are lit up in the evening with picture-perfect fairylit areas to create a truly magical setting.
