The Barn is a delightful and unique Kent wedding venue and this has been recognised in that over the past four years we have been a finalist in the annual Kent boutique wedding venue competition and on two of these occasions we were the outright winner including 2016.
The Barn is unique in many ways not least in that it has been rebuilt from a centuries old Elizabethan barn which was originally constructed in a Kent village and re-erected on its present site some years ago. It has been erected in the traditional Kentish style with oak beams and columns and this creates a truly wonderful atmosphere.
However, this is not the only unique feature of The Barn, as a wedding venue.
If you chose to have your wedding with us we will offer you the exclusive use of the whole premises – restaurant and bar together with our attractive courtyard style garden which has also won local awards on a very regular basis including 2016. Not many Kent wedding venues offer sole and exclusive use of the entire premises just for your special day.
We are licensed for civil ceremonies which are held in our beautiful new orangery, overlooking the lovely garden, which many of our brides and grooms have told us is the most perfect intimate and personal room for this occasion.
Yet another unique feature of The Barn for couples who select us is the opportunity to offer their guests three or four options for starters, main courses and desserts rather than being restricted to a set menu.
Another important aspect which we offer at The Barn is that regardless of the day or time that you chose to marry the prices remain the same.
Again uniquely we do not employ so called “wedding co-ordinators” and the only persons that you will deal with are Philippe and Janet Sorak, who have managed The Barn for some 25 years and they will give their undivided attention to your wedding requirements both leading up to the special day and on the day itself when Philippe will ensure that it will be an outstanding success for you and your guests.
This personal attention has been one of the key factors in our having been so successful in winning the Kent wedding venue awards as the judges’ comments in 2016 included the following.
“The judges described the Barn as a delightful, intimate and exclusive space rather than just a venue. They loved their cost transparency, lots of dining choice and ability to create a bespoke menu. Beautifully maintained and lovely both in daylight and at night, judges were impressed with the hands on approach of the team to create a perfect day and thought the 1st anniversary invitation for dinner and champagne a lovely added extra.”
We invite potential wedding couples who are planning to get married to view the many complimentary reviews by couples following their special day with us at The Barn.
