About Marleybrook House

Located just seven miles from the city of Canterbury, the picturesque Marleybrook House offers a gloriously secluded setting for a quintessential 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 romantic Walled Garden, the Oak Barn, the Fairy-Tale Gazebo, and the stone arch in the Grand Marquee.  Adjoining the marquee is our country-style Bar and Snug 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.

Our Vintage Fair is guaranteed to keep your guests entertained!  The Fair includes Victorian Swing Boats, Big Wheel and traditional side stalls, games and props.

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

We have a luxurious Wedding Suite for the night of your wedding; facilities include an en-suite bathroom with romantic roll-top bath, large walk-in shower and Jacuzzi on the terrace.  We also have a Bridal Studio in which you and your bridesmaids can prepare for the big day in luxury.

You will have a personal wedding coordinator on hand from start to finish to ensure that your whole day runs like clockwork.  We look forward to meeting you and will be delighted to have the opportunity of hosting your special day at this whimsical wonderland wedding venue.

I don't even know where to begin thanking you guys - you were soooo awesome! But first, thanks to all the help and support throughout the whole planning process - you did everything for us and this was greatly appreciated! Everything was perfect and I'm sooo pleased that not only did you make it all perfect - but you were also there to share our special day :) We cannot wait to comeback and see you all next year for our photos! We truly admire all the work you do planning weddings and events, and your hard work, attitude, and service totally pays off - you're all just the best!!! All our love xxxx

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.

Wonderful Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Corrine and Bob, on 31 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 11 Jun 2016

I don't know how to begin to thank you for our wonderful wedding day. The venue is beautiful and everything went perfectly. It far surpassed our expectations and we loved all of the special touches. Kathryn, your organisation skills and warm and friendly manner made me the most relaxed bride on the planet. Thank you for your patience with me and all of my emails and questions. Every one of our guests commented on how beautiful and special the venue was. You really have achieved something very special and any couple that get married here are very lucky. I hope we can come back again some day.

Unique Day!
Venue Service

By Kat and Lewis, on 31 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 01 May 2016

Beautiful venue and a beautiful day! The vintage fair really made our day unique! Our guests had an amazing time and commented on all the personal touches that made our wedding feel that extra bit special. The staff were superb and ensured that our day ran smoothly - We wanted to say a huge thank you to the Marleybrook team who made sure everything was perfect for us! Our day was even better than we imagined.

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
