About The Dreys

Situated in the heart of the Kent Downs, welcome to The Dreys, an ancient woodland wedding venue in Kent, perfect for the most unique of wedding days. The Dreys is a family run business set in 80 acres of private woodland, yet just 50 minutes from London it makes for the perfect escape to the wild for you and your guests.

When booking with The Dreys, you have the flexibility of a smaller intimate wedding for 60, or invite up to 500 to party the night away on this special day – and with a late license until 2am you can celebrate to your hearts’ content. The surrounding woodland at The Dreys makes for the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos, and the tranquil setting is the perfect place to savour every minute of your wedding day.

The heart of the venue is centred around the licenesed field shelter that hosts civil ceremonies as well as being the main dancefloor complete with fully stocked and staffed bar area for the reception. The field shelter is postioned next to our main dining marquee to host the wedding breakfast and our reception marquee to welcome guests into the venue and offer another beautifuly styled, covered, heated indoor outdoor space.

The experienced team at The Dreys are fully licensed for all civil ceremonies and woodland blessings, and do not tie you down to a fixed catering menu. They offer you the ability to choose your own suppliers so you can create a truly unique experience for you and your guests. With exclusive use of the venue, including the marquee, field shelter, and the onsite accommodation, you can really start to make The Dreys feel like a home from home while you tie the knot.

    Had an amazing day and everyone enjoyed themselves

    We had our wedding here in August and the Venue is beautiful. The staff on the day were brilliant at working round the rain. Nothing went to plan because of the weather but it really didn’t matter. Had an amazing day and everyone enjoyed themselves.

    This venue is true one of a kind

    Cannot thank Jackie, Jo and all the team at The Dreys enough for making our wedding day on the 30th June so special and memorable. This venue is a true one of a kind, with a relaxed and bohemian vibe, and you wont find better people to help make it the best day possible. They also have amazing supplier recommendations, from flowers to photographers, and everything in between. The accommodation is so chic and accessible, and the breakfast in the morning was a great touch. I would HIGHLY recommend the Dreys for anyone looking for a beautiful outdoorsy wedding or celebration. Thanks again!
