About The Night Yard

Highland Court Farm, Bridge, Canterbury
Kent, CT4 5HW

Set in the Kent countryside, The Night Yard is an unusual venue with plenty of character but with modern amenities. It originally started as a ‘night yard’ housing the dairy herd sleeping quarters and has been transformed into a beautiful wedding venue. Dress it up if you want or simply admire the character of the space. The Night Yard offers complete exclusivity for the day of your wedding and the flexibility to really creat Your Day.  We can accommodate up to 240 guests (utilising both the indoor & outdoor spaces).

The Night Yard is a quirky barn with a centralised courtyard.  The courtyard house a clear sided marquee and is edged by cloistered barns.  The acoustics are fantastic for live music, which can often bring a festival vibe to Your Day.

We appreciate that as every couple is different there is no set structure to how Your Day should run.  However our team of wedding coordinators work with you to advise and make suggestions, and help you coordinate Your Day.

• Exclusive use- One Wedding per day • Fully licensed bar • Licensed for civil ceremonies • Can accommodate up to 140 for the ceremony and an additional 100 evening guests • Family and Pet Friendly • Farm setting although close to Canterbury City centre

Flawless venue
Venue Service

By Mike & Annie, on 29 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2018

On 20th July, the night yard held our greatest day. The venue was perfect for what we wanted; a laid back, fun, chilled but massively enjoyable wedding. So many of our guests commented on how much they loved the venue. We would like to thank Courtney and Nancy who were fantastic. Every base covered and always there when needed, so chilled but on it at all times. Brendan and his team on the bar are worth their weight in gold. We had a lot of guests who enjoy a tipple but never a wait, outstanding service. If you are considering The Night Yard DO IT!!!!

Perfect for our laidback festival wedding
Venue Service

By Clare & Maurice, on 27 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 05 Jul 2018

Dear Courtney and Nancy Just a quick line to thank you once again for hosting our wedding day. The venue was fantastic and we knew that it exactly suited us for the laidback festival wedding that we envisaged. What we didn’t truly appreciate until the day was all the hard work done by your team and especially Courtney on the day to ensure that it all went off to plan. So thank you so much for making this so fantastic for us. It really was the best day ever. So many of our guests have said to us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to and how relaxed and fun it was. We just wish we could do it all over again!! With love Clare and Maurice

We couldnt have wished for a nicer venue
Venue Service

By Vicky & Martin, on 27 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2018

I just wanted to say a huge huge thank you. The Night Yard was the most perfect venue for our wedding...everything I could have wanted - from the beautiful openness of the space to the quirky little features dotted around. I want to say a special thank you to Nancy who helped so much with organising everything and more so settling my nerves, replying promptly to my many emails and making me feel like everything was being looked after (which is so was!). Also a special thank you to Courtney, she was absolutely amazing on the day, behind the scenes making sure every thing was ok and running smoothly as well as ensuring myself and Martin was happy throughout the day. What a great team you guys have. We couldn’t have wished for a nicer venue or a more perfect day (plus we have had many many complements ??)

Everything was perfect down to the last detail
Venue Service

By Scarlett & Ben, on 27 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 26 May 2018

We got married at The Night Yard at the end of May, and it was just our dream wedding come true. We very much wanted to a put our mark on the venue and have our own styled wedding, and it’s such a versatile place that nearly anything is possible. Everything was perfect down to the last detail and the venue and its staff were incredible, Courtney and Julia especially being our main venue coordinator for the build and the big day, maintained everything to a good speed, and helped us achieve our vision. It was nice to have input from all aspects about the day from the management to the general logistics. It was the only venue we viewed as we knew we had found the right place. Any couple wishing to make a “D.I.Y.” wedding and with their proper mark on it, look no further. They will help and advise as much as you want, but also just let you know what you can do and what is possible. Shout outs too Brendan on the bar too who runs a tight ship and will get any sort of party off on the right foot! We can’t thank you enough! We might get a divorce just so we can get married here again. Thanks so much. Ben & Scarlett xx

We cannot recommend this venue enough!
Venue Service

By Clare & Shayhad, on 27 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Apr 2018

We got married at The Night Yard a couple of weeks ago and it was truly a dream come true - the best day EVER! We found the venue approximately a year before the big day and as soon as we arrived for our viewing we knew it was the place we wanted to celebrate our love and start our married life. The venue has a beautiful rustic modern feel and is cleverly designed keeping guests in one area; this worked perfectly for us as we wanted an intimate feel to our wedding but had about 150 guests. The staff were AMAZING throughout the whole process (HUGE thank you to Charlotte, Nancy and Courtney). They were incredibly accommodating, we were mixing 4 very different cultures together (British, Zimbabwean, Iranian and Colombian) so it was key to have a venue that was flexible and allowed us to celebrate all these aspects of our wedding freely and elegantly. We cannot recommend this venue enough, all our guests loved it...please can we do it all over again?

Celebration of a birthday
Venue Service

By Alexandra Moses, on 30 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 10 Sep 2017

We did not have a wedding but a celebration of a milestone birthday. The Night Yard was our chosen location for a luncheon for 60 people from Australia, Portugal, France and England. It was a perfect location and the team behind the venue were fantastic. Catering by Stella Grove. Flowers by Hops and Flowers. Absolute praise for a 5 star venue.

We got married two weeks ago at The Night Yard and had THE BEST DAY EVER !!! We knew immediately The Night Yard was the venue for us. It's such a beautiful rustic venue , surrounded by the Kent countryside. We had some photo's taken in the orchards and fields behind the venue , they are so natural in such a beautiful setting. We cannot thank enough the amazing Charlotte ( wonderwoman ! ) and her amazing team. Firstly for being so helpful with anything and everything ! Nothing was too much trouble and it was so reassuring to know that she was on hand. Charlotte was so helpful on so many levels and really put our minds at ease. If you are looking for a unique wedding venue that's rustic and full of charm, then this is it!!!!

Our wedding was fun, romantic and memorable
Venue Service

By Lisa & Sam, on 13 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2017

We had our wedding at The Night Yard couple of weeks ago and we are still on a complete high after such an incredible day. The Night Yard is a stunning and beautiful venue in the Kent countryside surrounded by enchanting orchards and full of rustic charm and character. We searched for many months to find the perfect space to host our wedding and nothing compared to the Night Yard. It is one of the only venues in the area that allows you to completely personalise your event giving you full freedom and flexibility over your day. Our wedding was fun, romantic and memorable. With a few candles and flowers the venue is transformed ready for a magical, intimate ceremony and an exciting after party. Each and every single one of our guests were wowed and amazed by how incredible the venue was. The staffs attitude and commitment to providing a day you and your guests will never forget was what made our wedding more special than we could ever of hoped for. We have been inundated with messages of appreciation from our guests but we honestly can’t take the credit, Charlotte and her team were the real stars on the day. Every little detail was taken care of without hesitation. Charlotte managed the event with amazing skill, precision and passion. The venue is beautiful but Charlotte’s energy and experience is what gives it the WOW factor. We were blown away by the hard work and sheer determination she has to ensure that we had as much fun and as little stress as possible. I felt totally at ease in her care and it was of great comfort to know she was on hand to make decisions and keep things on track. We really can’t thank her enough.

A gorgeous setting in the middle of Kent
Venue Service

By Katie & Max, on 13 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 24 Jun 2017

We got married at The Night Yard last weekend and can't speak highly enough of the venue & Charlotte and her team. The setting was everything we imagined it would be (relaxed, fun, informal, lots of different "spaces" for people to use and hang out in) because it was the right balance of a blank canvas and guidance/advice from Charlotte on what would and wouldn't work. It was a genuine reflection of us and what we wanted our wedding day to be like. Charlotte herself was a superstar on the day, keeping everything on track but so subtly that we almost didn't notice she was there! And of course the bar staff were brilliant, which was just as well when our party practically drank them out of gin...! Thank you so much to all of the team for helping us realise our expectations of the day & for ensuring it all ran so smoothly that we really got to relax and enjoy it. If you are looking for a gorgeous setting in the middle of Kent, where you have an effective blank canvas but a team to match a more structured and restricted venue & guide you with recommendations etc so that you can switch off and enjoy your day, the Night Yard is the place for you!!

A secret hideaway minutes from Canterbury
Venue Service

By Jessica & Eoin, on 15 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 02 Jul 2016

An absolutely stunning venue, that offers up the opportunity to personalise your wedding on every level: from lighting to furniture, from caterers to live music. The setting was particularly suitable for weddings with young children present as it is walled on all sides, so parents could relax. It feels like a secret hideaway, but is minutes from Canterbury train station so easily reached from London and the South East. We loved being able to do everything in one place and the staff were lovely. Thank you!

Thank you Jess and Eoin for taking the time to give us a review.... I still tell people about that table and how amazing it looked with the party tent (now in residence!) Everyone just really enjoyed the party and that's what it was all about!! The atmosphere was just so much FUN!!

The best wedding venue in Kent, if not the world!
Venue Service

By Michelle & John, on 17 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 14 May 2016

A million, billion, zillion thank-you's to Charlotte, Justin and everyone at The Night Yard for making our wedding weekend totally perfect, everything we imagined and more! The venue itself is such a wonderful and unusual space that has oodles of character, and simultaneously offers a blank canvas that we were really able to personalise with our own crazy and ambitious ideas. But the real star of The Night Yard is Charlotte, whose help, support, enthusiasm, creativity, organisation and experience ensured everything about our wedding was absolutely amazing and ran exactly according to plan, from the moment we first went to see the venue until the last box of wedding paraphernalia was packed away after the big day. We had such an awesome time, as did all our family and friends. We really can't recommend The Night Yard enough!

Charlotte, The Night Yard at The Night Yard responded to this review on 24/10/2016 07:29:58

Michelle and John. Thank you so much for your review.... What a weekend it still blows me away at the scale of the operation and the attention to detail... (including the miniature cows, which made a return later on in the year!) What a memorable day for you both, your family and all your friends... It was great to see a few familiar faces too!!
