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.

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.

Nettlestead Place offers an exclusive unique English country setting with award winning gardens, striking medieval manor, a location that is genuinely a perfect wedding venue. The manor is steeped in history and is still a family home but it can be exclusively used for weddings. It is a true gem of a venue!

The 13th century Undercroft is a truly unique location for wedding ceremonies and is characterised by 3 medieval pillars. An historic and striking setting for such an important occasion. The Undercroft can seat up to 120 guests. For couples wanting to marry outside our stunning Rose Garden is the 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 manors sunken pond and rolling valleys of Kents 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.

Our exclusive wedding marquee overs amazing views over the valley and gardens and can accommodate up to 150 day guests and 200 evening guests for wedding receptions. The beautifully decorated wedding marquee offers couples an opportunity to theme and decorate to their own style and taste.

    My best day ever

    Nettlestead Place is just amazing! We fell in love with it as soon as we saw the pictures of it then when we went to view it, we both just knew no where else would do. The house, the gardens, the setting is all just beautiful and Sharon the wedding co-ordinator was a god send and became a friend, she is so professional and kind. I can hand on heart say Nettlestead Place is my favourite place and would recommend it time and time again
    ! 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

    Where to start, Nettlestead Place is simply magical ! From the moment we pulled into the private drive we knew this was the place for our special day.
    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 so much....

    We just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you did on our wedding day. In spite of the changes in plans, the whole day still seemed to flow seamlessly and we are really grateful that you were there to adapt everything as necessary and for all you have done in arranging it all beforehand too.

    We had a truly magical day and one we are really proud and happy to be able to remember for all our lives. Thank you so much for everything.

    We are so happy that we found Nettlestead Place

    We were so glad to find Nettlestead Place, it was our dream venue! We couldn’t have asked for a better day! Sharon and the team at The Vine were amazing, they made sure the day ran smoothly from start to finish. Leading up to the wedding was a very enjoyable experience too, Sharon and Kathleen (from the Vine) made sure that they always kept in contact with me and I felt at ease! Overall, the whole day was perfect we feel so lucky that we were able to get married there. If anyone was to ask me where to get married, I would have no doubt in saying Nettlestead! It was simply Beautiful.

    We loved working with you ..

    Now that we are back from our honeymoon we just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help with organising and managing our wedding. Everything ran so smoothly and we had the best day! We knew everything was handled and we didn't have to worry about anything.

    Nettlestead Place was so beautiful and the perfect place to celebrate our wedding. From the very beginning we felt really comfortable and at ease there. We really don't want to stop visiting! Everyone was very helpful on the day and Mike did an especially great job helping at the end of the evening. Please pass on a special thanks to him for his help packing up and leading us back to the house in the dark!

    Nettlestead Place is a tremendous venue

    Nettlestead is a tremendous venue – a beautiful house with a lovely garden and country views. Sharon Page, the event manager, organised a great wedding day, dealing patiently with the multitude of details and pressures from different people, with a calm smile and reassuring word. She made the whole thing very much easier.
    The use of the grand bridal room on the first floor to get dressed and do the final make-up for the bride and bridesmaids is good. From there it’s a flight of steps to the Undercroft, with its log fire at one end. The space works well for the marriage ceremony. We had 100-plus in attendance.
    After the ceremony, there’s a short walk through the gardens to the marquee. It’s big enough to have the music at one end and still be able to talk at the other end, which made for an excellent party in the evening.
    In all, we had a truly memorable day at Nettlestead thanks to Sharon’s experience and unobtrusive management.
    The real test is would we go there again if we had another wedding to organise. Definitely.

    My perfect wedding

    Nettlestead Place was our dream venue, we knew instantly from the moment we looked around the place on a dreary January day. Sharon met with us and shared the stunning photos of previous weddings and the plans for their gazebo in the rose garden which was built this year. Sharon instilled us with confidence and reassurance that nothing was too much trouble and she really is super organised! Our wedding day was the perfect day and everything was seamless. It really is the most gorgeous venue if you're looking for a Kent country garden wedding.
