About Mount Ephraim Gardens

Located in the heart of the Kent countryside lies Mount Ephraim, a beautiful family owned stately home with 10 acres of Edwardian gardens overlooking the family fruit farm. Offering a beautiful and unique venue for your wedding day, the spectacular views of the gardens and estate create the perfect backdrop for your big day. 

If you'd like to do it all at Mount Ephraim, it is licensed to host ceremonies of up to 110 people in the main hall or garden or up to 150 in the reception rooms. The main hall features an elegant cantilevered staircase leading down onto the floor where your guests will be seated - a guaranteed spectacular entrance under a large glass skylight with plenty of natural light. Alternatively, the gardens offer an enchanting experience for an outdoor ceremony. There is an impressive staircase leading to the ceremony lawn which sits alongside the rock gardens with a series of rock pools leading to a beautifully crafted Japanese stone bridge and lake.

The reception rooms in the main house create an elegant space for your wedding breakfast, adorned with marble fireplaces and chandeliers, and can comfortably accommodate up to 110 people for a sit down meal.

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

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…

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!

a day we will never forget
Venue Service

By Joanna and Graham, on 12 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Apr 2018

Gosia many, many thanks for all you have done for us before and on the day. You were always there for us and ensured the day ran like clockwork. Our day was absolutely magical and a day we will never forget, and we just wanted to thank you for helping to make it so. Mount Ephraim is a very special place for us, which we plan to visit regularly. Once again you were simply wonderful!

Emma & Simon's Wedding
Venue Service

By Emma & Simon, on 05 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Jul 2017

Our day turned from a potential disaster, A&E the night before with Emma’s mother breaking her arm, two hours sleep and all planned preparations out the window into an unmitigated triumph. And we have Gosia to thank for her calm and patience (a forty five minute late start), and Mount Ephraim to thank for being a stunning venue. A stock phrase I know when I hear someone say, ‘it was the best day of our lives’ but it truly and quite literally was. A few weeks later we became quite glum because we wanted to go back and do it all again. Not the broken arm and all night in Margate hospital but the bit when the band kicked off and our procession made its way down from the house, through the stunning grounds to our waiting guests in the glorious sunshine. Someone was on our side! Not even Gosia can command the weather, though if it had rained the two places they have in the house are fantastic too. I still get emotional when I think about the day, it’s a memory for life. Also we can return every year and stay in their beautiful rooms, eat their wonderful breakfast and stand at the exact place we got married and relive the day. Thank you for everything Gosia and Mount Ephraim.

As someone else has mentioned during the wedding planning the event co-ordinator changed from the previous lady to Gosia. This was a blessing in disguise as Gosia is fantastic at her job!! She is attentive, answering any queries large and small, and making sure you're happy. On the day she was everywhere making sure that everything ran smoothly and was just how you wanted. She was also genuinely excited to share in your day, you can tell it's much more than just a job to her. Mount Ephraim itself is a stunning venue, both the house and gardens, we couldn't have had the wedding anywhere more perfect. Our guests loved it just as much as we did. And the photos taken in the garden are stunning! The food was delicious, and all the staff involved were brilliant. There were a couple of very minor issues that occurred and Gosia was on hand to resolve these straight away, and made sure we were happy. It's the most beautiful venue.

The best day of our lives
Venue Service

By Laura & Dan, on 26 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 27 May 2017

I was anxious to begin with booking this venue as we'd changed hands with the main point of contact a few times, however, Gosia specifically was INCREDIBLE - nothing was missed in the lead up, the perfect wedding coordinator and felt like more of a guest! The venue is gorgeous, we were lucky enough for the wedding to be hosted outside. The room to get ready in for the bride's party is huge, the dining room was spacious and being able to dress the space before put my mind at ease, the wedding rooms for the evening were spotless and beautifully decorated. 100% recommended!

it really couldn't have been more perfect!

By yvonne wilson, on 22 May 2017Date of Wedding - 20 May 2017

My son got married at Mt. Ephraim and being a retired florist I was 'booked' as their wedding florist. Gocia our co-ordinator was so, so helpful right from the start. I've worked at many wedding venues throughout my career as a wedding florist and I can say with total honesty that seldom have I encountered anyone as willing to go the extra mile to make my job easier as she did. We spent a total of 3 days at the venue setting up and wedding and by the time we left we felt as though we were saying goodbye to a dear friend. The facilities and staff are first class and the house and grounds are totally stunning. What else can you ask for on your wedding day? Cannot recommend highly enough.

Gosia, Event Manager at Mount Ephraim Gardens responded to this review on 24/05/2017 11:36:00

Dear Yvonne Thank you very much for you extremely kind words about both the venue and myself. As a venue we try to do our best for all our clients and I also personally put so much hard work into the weddings that it is very pleasing for me to hear feedback like this. Many thanks again and I am so glad that it was so successful. Best wishes Gosia
