Located in the heart of the Kent countryside lies Mount Ephraim, a beautiful family owned stately home with 10 acres of traditional gardens. 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, we are licensed to host ceremonies of up to 110 people in the main hall or 110 in the garden. The main hall features an elegant cantilevered staircase leading down onto the floor where the guests will be seated - a guaranteed spectacular entance under a large glass skylight with plenty of natural light. Alternatively, the gardens offer an enchanting experience for an outdoor ceremony, again with an impressive staircase leading to the ceremony lawn.
We can host receptions in the historic manor house or on the front lawn, depending on the size of your party and preference. The reception rooms can comfortably accommodate up to 110 people for the wedding breakfast and reception. In the evening, we can easily welcome 175 guests in total with our Dining Room available for evening food and buffets, a boutique bar and our main hall which makes a perfect dance floor with brilliant acoustics. Or if you'd prefer an outside marquee, we usually place them on the front lawn beside the house - a fantastic spot that offers breathtaking views of the estate.
We also have a spectacular wedding suite for you to wake up in with exquisite views, and you can enjoy a breakfast in the manor house. We also have four guest bedrooms all individually and beautifully decorated, and from March 2019 the new Garden Wing will be available. This fully furnished self-catering wing of the house will sleep up to 12 people. All guest rooms and the Garden Wing are exclusively reserved for all wedding days so couples can ensure their closest friends and family can be around them on their big day.
There's never a wedding the day before or day after your wedding so you can relax, take your time and enjoy your moment. We're also extremely flexible so whether you are looking for a traditional day or a grand affair, there is no better setting.
We understand that with the unpredictable British weather it can be hard for you to plan a wedding. But with the house available for use as well as the gardens, we’re as weather proof as they come! Creative and innovative catering is provided by our catering partner (but alternative arrangements can be made by arrangement). We invite you to come and view our venue - we are sure that you’ll be able to picture yourself enjoying the most important day of your life in the beautiful setting of Mount Ephraim Gardens.
