Nettlestead Place is a wedding venue situated in Nettlestead, Kent. This stunning 10-acre property offers a unique English country setting with award-winning gardens and a striking medieval manor. The manor is steeped in history and is still a family home, but it can be exclusively used for weddings. This beautiful space makes for a true gem of a venue.
Facilities and Capacity
The 14th-century gatehouse stands to the west of the manor at the start of the private drive and is an impressive entrance for the bridal party. St Mary's Church is the neighbouring church and just a 5-minute walk to Nettlestead Place. There is also a comfortable and relaxing suite for the bridal party to make their preparations.
The 13th-century Undercroft is a truly unique location for wedding ceremonies and is characterised by 3 medieval pillars. The Undercroft can comfortably seat up to 120 guests. For couples wanting to marry outside, the stunning Rose Garden is the ideal location for outdoor ceremonies. The beautiful hexagonal cedar wood Gazebo, sitting at the base of a 300-year-old Lime tree and surrounded by rose trees, is the perfect setting for an outside ceremony. The aromas and the beauty of the rose garden make this a truly romantic setting.
After the wedding ceremony, guests can enjoy champagne and canapes on the broad terraces overlooking the manor's sunken pond and rolling valleys of Kent's countryside. The celebrations can continue as guests can wander through the idyllic gardens, famous throughout Europe, across manicured lawns, paths, and water features, surveying the beautiful Kent countryside on their way to the wedding marquee.
The exclusive wedding marquee offers amazing views over the valley and gardens and can accommodate up to 150 day guests and 200 evening guests for wedding receptions.
Couples are welcome to decorate the venue, tailoring it to their unique style and tastes. A wedding coordinator can assist with this and other details, including liaising with the in-house catering service. The newlyweds are also welcome to spend their first married night in this opulent venue's accommodations. Nettlestead Place is pet-friendly and also allows for confetti and fireworks to illuminate the celebration.
Nettlestead Place is a medieval manor listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 set in the heart of Kent. It has for centuries staged lavish celebrations and is now exclusively available for weddings and other celebrations.

A truly magical experience at Nettlestead
Sharon and the Nettlestead team went over and above our expectations to make it the perfect day for us. This was so important for us as we live in Canada, and so the team’s professionalism and responsiveness made organizing the wedding from afar possible. Sharon was incredibly helpful and provided amazing service and support to help us plan and work through all the details of the day. The wonderful wedding we had wasn’t possible without them! We simply cannot say anything negative about our experience, we highly recommend getting married at Nettlestead Place.
Perfect, perfect, perfect
Sharon made planning a wedding so much easier, providing helpful advice and making sure everything ran perfectly on the day.
The Undercroft is a beautiful and unique place for the wedding ceremony and the gardens and marquee were exactly what we wanted for a spring country garden wedding.
The food and waiting service was truly excellent; every meal was cooked and presented to perfection and served swiftly and elegantly by attentive, highly professional waiting staff.
Overall, we cannot recommend Nettlestead Place enough- it must be the best wedding venue in the Kent, if not the country!
A truly wonderful venue
I would recommend Nettlestead to everyone - the undercroft is the most unique ceremony venue anyone could ask for. I'm always tempted to 'not mention' it to keep it a secret as it goes with the romantic setting.
The catering staff onsite were professional and the food is amazing - well presented and very delicious. The marquee is completely fit for purpose and looks so beautiful with nearly every type of decoration.
If we could, we'd do it all again tomorrow!
Beautiful Perfect Wedding Day
Just Perfect 🤍
A Wonderful Venue
Our Dream Wedding Venue
As soon as we saw it we knew it was the one! The staff are wonderful and the grounds are spectacular.
We cannot recommend this venue enough. From the food, to the organising, to the decor. We got married in the Undercroft, a magical, beautiful area of the venue, which is nothing like anything we have seen before. Before moving to the beautiful rose garden and ending our day in the fantastic spacious marquee.
Nettlesstead place is the perfect venue for a timeless British Garden wedding.
We were offered to spend the evening in the bridal suite after the wedding and we cannot thank Annabel and Roy enough for their hospitality. The stay was amazing and the cooked breakfast we highly recommend.
Our perfect venue for our perfect say and the only thing that I would change is that I would do it all again and again and again.
Thank you Nettlestead ❤️
The most beautiful wedding venue
The Best Decision We Made
The best day ever!
My best day ever
! The food was gorgeous too. Our guests all said how wonderful every aspect of the day was and I truly believe Nettlestead is a special place for sure!
The best day ever
With stunning gardens, a perfect back drop to the house which inside awaits you a truly special ceremony room that is the under-croft. The marquee reception is perfect, being nestled in the gardens just a floral footpath away from the house.
But if that hasn't sold you, then Sharon and Majestic Events are really the stars of the show. Planning a wedding is stressful and the team make the whole process a dream. Nothing is too much and attention to detail really goes a long way to making the day run as smooth as possible. Leaving you to enjoy your special day entirely.
Our Wedding Day was just simply the best day of our lives.
We cannot thank you enough for making our day so special. I’d do it again and again as it was perfect.
Thank you for the best day
