Nettlestead Place

Nettlestead Place is a medieval manor listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 set in the heart of Kent. It has staged lavish celebrations for centuries and is now exclusively available for weddings and other celebrations.

Its 10-acre garden is a photographer’s dream and offers many choices for your album. From the natural wild country styling to the beautiful rose garden or the herbaceous borders to the bamboo gardens, there’s an extensive variety for the bridal party and guests to enjoy. The gardens are on different levels and afford impressive views of the River Medway and surrounding farmland. Couples can tie the knot at the 13th-century Undercroft – characterised by three pillars, this historic location is a striking setting for such an important occasion.

After the wedding ceremony 200 guests can enjoy champagne and canapés on the broad terraces overlooking the manors sunken pond. The celebrations can continue as guests wander through the idyllic gardens, famous throughout Europe, across manicured lawns, paths and water features, surveying the beautiful Kent countryside on their way to the wedding marquee.
