About Marleybrook House

Located just seven miles from the city of Canterbury, the picturesque Marleybrook House offers a gloriously secluded setting for a quintessentially English wedding.

Hidden within five acres of stunning gardens and woodland, the surrounding grounds are idyllic. Once home to star Eartha Kitt, the beautiful country house is full of quaint charm and historic character.

We are licensed to hold civil ceremonies on the premises. The four ceremony areas you can choose from include; the Stone Pillared Gazebo, the Kentish Barn, the Fairy-Tale Gazebo, and the Rose Arch in the grand Marquee. Adjoining the marquee is our country-style bar and lounge area for you and your guests to relax in comfort and luxury. After the ceremony, you and your guests are encouraged to make the most of the grounds and explore.

The venue is perfect in every season, boasting some of the most stunning photograph backdrops throughout the year.

Whether you’re planning the traditional English occasion or looking for something more unique, Marleybrook House is perfect. Quirky features such as the vintage tractor and red telephone box are perfect photo opportunities and make a more unusual setting for the day.

We have a fabulous Bridal Suite in which you and your bridesmaids can prepare for the big day in luxury. The room, complete with a hot tub on the terrace, can accommodate up to six people. For your first night of wedded bliss, our newly renovated Orient Express inspired Honeymoon Carriage is a gorgeous, unique retreat.

You will have a personal wedding co-ordinator on hand from start to finish to ensure that the whole day runs like clockwork. We look forward to meeting you and hope that you will choose our fantastic, fun venue.

• Licensed for civil ceremonies, with four areas to choose from • Exclusive use available • Your very own Vintage Fayre can be arranged, complete with swingboats and side stalls • Accommodation: Bridal Suite, Honeymoon Carriage and more • Fully licensed bar • Vintage and unique

A dream no need to pinch its real
Venue Service

By Mr Hari & Mrs Usha Nair, on 13 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2016

Marleybrook for sure is a dream venue and as a father of the bride I cannot say in words how magical the whole occasion progressed. You are assisted from the day you book and whatever unusual requests you make (ours - traditional Indian ceremony followed by a civil wedding) it can be catered and moulded to your satisfaction. The facilities are first class and with ample parking for guests - you feel entirely relaxed. Even children have many activities whilst you are either dining or mingling with guests. They are even given a separate close by barn fully invigilated for their own feast. A must if you are lucky like my family to conduct such an event in this picturesque venue. Wonderful photos speak for themselves. Thank you Kris, Janie and Kathryn.

The Greatest Wedding of All Time Ever
Venue Service

By Bruce Asher & Laura Asher-Jones, on 19 Oct 2015

I know every newlywed thinks that, but seriously. Every single one of our guests said exactly that. From the very beginning, Kris and Janie were a dream to work with. They welcomed us into their home, providing a relaxing and informal environment in which to plan our big day. They were helpful and accommodating to all requests; they put our minds at ease and made sure that we had everything we wanted. The stunningly beautiful venue speaks for itself; a photographer's dream. Luckily, the weather held for our October nuptials, but there were plenty of as-good contingencies just in case. Our co-ordinator, Kathryn, was similarly an utter joy to work with. No request was insurmountable, and always dealt with with a smile. Her hard work made the day perfect, and we had nothing to worry about. We have nothing but praise for the Marleybrook team, and neither do our guests. Thank you so much, Marleybrook! And if you're reading this during your venue hunt, then you can stop - get married here.

Incredible service
Venue Service

By Amie and Andy, on 19 Oct 2015

We wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all your hard work for our wedding on the 9th August. When we first chose Marleybrook, you promised a very personal touch and this has been evident all the way through. Meeting up beforehand meant you were more like friends on our wedding day and we are so grateful to have had the chance to use your beautiful home as our venue. I am sure there are people who lose sight of what Marleybrook is really about, but you do an absolutely brilliant job and offer an incredible service. We had an amazing day and have memories that will last forever. Thank you for making our 'big day' a very special one. Wedding - Sunday 9th August 2015
