Marleybrook House

Marleybrook House is an immaculately presented seventeenth century 'chocolate box' thatched Country House full of unique character, history and old world charm.  Former home to the legendary international singer, actress and caberet star Eartha Kitt, Marleybrook House is in a secluded location, offering total privacy and exclusivity, yet just seven miles from the city of Canterbury.  Nestled within five acres, the landscaped gardens, paddocks and woodland provide the perfect setting for a quintessential English country wedding.

We are licensed to hold marriage ceremonies on these premises.  We offer you a choice of four ceremony areas to include; the Stone Pillared Gazebo in the formal Walled Garden, the Kentish Oak Framed Barn, the Fairy-Tale Gazebo on the open lawn and the Rose Arch in the Grand Marquee.  You and your guests are invited to explore the grounds of this exclusive venue before entering the Grand Marquee for your wedding breakfast and evening reception where the finishings and accessories are of the finest quality.  Our country-style bar and snug lounge conveniently adjoins the marquee offering guests further space and comfort to relax and enjoy this wonderful venue for all its character.

Marleybrook House is perfect for weddings all year round providing the prettiest 'picture postcard' backdrop throughout the changing seasons.  Winter weddings are also ideal within the cosy feel of this venue as it offers a log burning fire and a true christmas feel.
Experience the nostalgia of the many features in abundance here including the Oak Framed Barn (situated adjacent to the marquee making it ideal for hog roasts, backdrop for photographs or any unique ideas you may wish to use it for), quirky features such as the original haywain, gypsy caravan, vintage tractor, various carts, butchers bike, red telephone box and much more!

Finish the evening in style and stay in the newly renovated Honeymoon Carriage that is based on the pullman style carriages currently used on the Orient Express.  Further accommodation includes our luxurious Bridal Suite, complete with hot tub on the terrace, offering sumptuous accommodation to enjoy at your leisure.  This can accommodate up to six persons making it the ideal place for a pre wedding party with recommended beauty treatments available ...or simply as a comfortable space for you and your bridal party to get ready on the day and have those memorable first pictures of the day taken.

We pride ourselves in delivering a first class service of the highest standard.  Together with your personal dedicated wedding co-ordinator, we are on hand throughout the entire planning process leading up to the day of your wedding thus ensuring your special day is managed seamlessly.  We very much look forward to welcoming you to this personable, fun and quirky venue.

Venue Service 'The Greatest Wedding of All Time Ever'

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.

Venue Service 'Incredible 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
