About Mount Ephraim Gardens

Staplestreet, Hernhill, Faversham
Kent, ME13 9TX

Located in the heart of the Kent countryside lies Mount Ephraim, a beautiful, family owned stately home with 10 acres of Edwardian gardens and stunning views of the surrounding countryside and orchards. Mount Ephraim offers the most perfect, picturesque and tranquil setting for your wedding day. 

Unlike other venues, the main house is exclusively just for you. As you can have access to the house, both the day before and the day after your wedding, so you will have a less rushed experience - and there's never a wedding the day before or day after, so at Mount Ephraim you can relax, take your time and enjoy your moment. 

We can accommodate ceremonies of up to 100 people in the house or garden.

For a reception in the house we offer wedding breakfasts for up to 100, with room for a total of 175 evening guests. 

Or for a marquee reception in our truly impressive yet intimate gardens, we can accommodate over 250 guests / and up to 150 for a ceremony in the house or gardens.

We have three stunning areas licensed for ceremonies. You can choose from getting married in our main hall which features an elegant staircase, a guaranteed spectacular entrance under a large glass skylight. Alternatively, the gardens offer an enchanting experience for an outdoor ceremony. There is an impressive staircase leading down to the ceremony lawn, which sits alongside a series of rock pools and leads to a beautifully crafted Japanese stone bridge and lake. Or our reception rooms, adorned with marble fireplaces and chandeliers, create an elegant space for your ceremony.

Our beautiful reception rooms, in the main house are ideal for your wedding breakfast, comfortably accommodating up to 100 for a sit-down meal, prepared by our fabulous caterers Scott Anderson Ltd. Using only the finest ingredients, sourced locally wherever possible, their team create imaginatively presented and delicious tasting food that is beautifully served. For your evening party, up to 175 guests can enjoy our boutique bar, with dancing taking place in the main hall, with the most amazing acoustics. Or if you'd prefer a marquee on the front lawn for your reception, it's a truly fantastic spot, offering breath-taking views of the gardens, and plenty of space for over 250 guests.  

One of the huge advantages of Mount Ephraim is our on-site accommodation, for up to 22 guests. Our B&B includes our private, luxury wedding suite and four individually decorated, double ensuite rooms, so you and your select guests can wake up to the stunning views and enjoy breakfast the morning after your wedding. And our new, fully furnished, self-catering Garden Wing, with six double bedrooms, is also available for private hire, so more of your closest friends and family can join in with the extended wedding celebrations. The Garden Wing features two large sitting rooms, a fully equipped kitchen diner and a snooker room. The main house also boasts a large elegant dressing room, for getting ready in on the morning of your wedding.

• 10 acres of stunning Edwardian gardens with a Japanese rock garden, bridge and lake • Unique family owned estate with exclusive hire of the main house • Enchanting sweeping staircases in both the hall and gardens for spectacular entrances • Wedding breakfasts of up to 100 people in the house or plenty more in a marquee, in our gardens • Mount Ephraim sleeps 22 people • There is never a wedding the day before or after your wedding

The most amazing weekend at Mount Ephraim.
Venue Service

By Philip and Danni, on 30 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Oct 2019

Where do we start. We had the most amazing day and the most amazing weekend at Mount Ephraim. Every time we met Lucy before the wedding, nothing was too much trouble. She was so helpful from start to finish. She was faultless throughout the day, and there for us when we needed it, everything was done perfectly. The house was the ideal venue for our wedding breakfast and reception, and everyone loved it. The staircase was part of many of our best moments throughout the day - walking down those stairs is the most amazing feeling. Our family stayed in the Garden Wing (which we can also highly recommend!) over the whole weekend, and it made it the family time we wanted and meant that the wedding day felt like a whole weekend as the house and gardens were ours for a lot longer! We cannot recommend this venue and team any higher, we could not have wished for anywhere better for our special day.

We could not have asked for a better venue!
Venue Service

By Juanne and Nicholas Harding, on 03 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 28 Sep 2019

We couldn’t have asked for a better venue to have our wedding. Lucy looked after us from start to finish and let us do whatever we wanted to do, she was extremely flexible and it meant we could have the wedding that we had dreamt of. The gardens are beautiful and we pretty much has them to ourselves barring a few visitors who looked on and congratulated us as we had our photos. Also the exclusivity of the house is amazing. I don’t think I have seen anywhere where you get the house for pretty much the whole weekend rather than weddings being squashed back to back like other venues. It was a brilliant experience and I would recommend Mount Ephraim to anyone. If only we could do it all over again!

Vicky and Lucy, the venue coordinators, were fanta

We had the most amazing time at Mount Ephraim gardens. Not only is the venue absolutely stunning, Vicky and Lucy, the venue coordinators, were fantastic and so supportive. Everything was so easy on the day which allowed us to have the most amazing day.

The best wedding venue!
Venue Service

By Sarah & Mark, on 25 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 25 Aug 2019

The best wedding venue! Lucy our wedding coordinator was fantastic the day went off without a hitch (we were so chill throughout the day it was great) The venue itself is stunning, you can get married inside or outside (both places are beautiful). Plenty of places for romantic photo opportunities. The best part is that we can come back and visit the gardens during the summer, which can’t do with a lot of wedding venues!

Pure magic
Venue Service

By Stephanie and Luke Dallison, on 27 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2019

We can not recommend this venue enough! We had the best wedding and the venue is just simply stunning. The staff here are fabulous! The venue was very accommodating of our wants and needs before the wedding and always had an open dialogue form the start. Lucy was just fantastic and so was the accommodation. She truly went above and beyond, drying off our bouncy castle with towels so that we could use it for an hour (really not her job), allowing us to decorate the day before the wedding. Sadly, we had a rainy wedding but you really wouldn’t have know. The grounds make this venue but it’s just as fabulous in the rain if not more so. Lucy was there from the morning of our wedding until it had finished. The guests were blown away with what an amazing venue it was! If we could hire it every day for our wedding we would. This venue and the staff made our day truly magical. The Dallisons xx

Country Garden wedding - Best Day EVER!
Venue Service

By Sarah Gibbons, on 18 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2019

We can not recommend this beautiful venue and their amazing team enough; they made our day truly special and one to remember for years to come! All of our guests where blown away by the house, it's grounds and the incredible views! We visited the venue on an off chance on one of their wedding open days and completely fell in love with it, we knew this was the one! we visited the venue a number of times before getting married, somehow it become more beautiful with every visit! All of the staff who work with or at Mount Ephraim Gardens provide an outstanding service! Lucy and Vicky who run the weddings are absolutely fabulous and make it their mission to bring your vision to life! They are extremely accommodating and go above and beyond to make your day as smooth and enjoyable as possible - during the morning of the wedding Vicky was the calm and reassuring voice I needed to relax the nerves! The grounds to this venue make it an outstanding place of natural beauty - rain or shine, and no matter the season! There are so many different areas within the grounds for gorgeous photos and for your guests to explore, it makes it even more magical! Thank you for making our wedding day the best day ever! We can't thank you enough! The Gibbons x

You made our day so easy and sorted everything
Venue Service

By Isobel & Ashley, on 07 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 28 Jun 2019

You made our day so easy and sorted everything. It wouldn’t have ran so smoothly if you weren’t there. We are so thankful for everything you did and how kind you were to us. We cannot thank you enough!

Way beyond our expectations
Venue Service

By Leslie & Lee, on 07 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 15 Jun 2019

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for letting us have our wedding at your incredible venue. Everything went way beyond our expectations and every single member of the staff was amazing with us and our guests. We thought the gardens were absolutely gorgeous – very much delighted our photographer Liam who was like a kid at Christmas – and really, we couldn’t have dreamed of a better setting.

A huge thank you
Venue Service

By Ella & Charlie, on 07 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 18 May 2019

A huge thank you from us for all you did for our wedding. We had a truly wonderful day, and very much appreciate your relaxed, kind, accommodating and supportive approach. We had so many comments about how perfect the venue was, and we totally agree.

The most incredible day
Venue Service

By Emma and Matt, on 12 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2018

We had our wedding reception in Mount Ephraim and we had the most incredible day! Having access to the house the day before and the day after make the whole process so easy for us and it made us feel like we were home for the weekend. Gosia was amazing during the planning – no question or request was too crazy or too much trouble. We were encouraged to put our own stamp on the day and this made our wedding feel so personal. But at the same time, the venue is stunning so you really don’t need to do a lot to make it look magical! We can’t thank Mount Ephraim enough.

breathtaking beauty and charm
Venue Service

By Chris and Duncan, on 12 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Jul 2018

We got married at Mount Ephraim and are full of gratitude for a beautiful & magical wedding which would not have been possible without the breath taking beauty and charm of the Mount Ephraim house and gardens. We fell in love with the gardens from the first moment we visited – it really holds a sacred place in our hearts – and we just feel so privileged to have been able to get married there. A massive thank you to the Dawes family and team (Gosia really does make the whole process seamless!) for the most perfect day we could ever have imagined…

Venue Service

By Guy & Caroline, on 05 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 31 May 2018

What a fantastic day at a wonderful venue with amazing organization. Everything worked seamlessly with people on hand to ensure all went well without intruding on the day. We could not be happier with the service we received. Thanks especially to Lucy for all of her efforts. The small touches make everything hugely better. Could not recommend this more. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts. Guy & Caz Reverand!
