About The Night Yard

Set in the beautiful Kent countryside just outside historic Canterbury, The Night Yard is a very versatile and flexible venue with plenty of character and perfectly styled with modern and contempoary amenities. The Night Yard originally started as a ‘Night Yard’ which was the farms dairy herd sleeping quarters and has over the past five years 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 in order that you can create Your Day exactly how you want it! We can accommodate up to 240 guests utilising both the great indoor & outdoor spaces.

The Night Yard is a quirky barn with a centralised courtyard. The courtyard houses a stunning new Glasshouse which offers all year round weddings and is edged by cloistered barns. The acoustics are fantastic for live music, which can often bring a festival vibe to Your Day.

    COVID Wedding!

    The team at the night yard were fab in ensuring our day still went ahead, despite numerous set backs and a global pandemic. We had a wonderful day and it really is such a beautiful venue, we are so happy we still went ahead.

    Absolutely beautiful venue and amazing staff

    The Night Yard is an incredibly beautiful venue and we are so happy we found it for our wedding! The staff are so friendly and put in a lot of time and effort to make the wedding day as perfect as it can possibly be. We got married at the Night Yard during the pandemic so it was a very difficult time to organise a wedding for everyone however the Night Yard staff were very understanding and did all they could to keep the day as special as it could be under the guidelines. I would definitely recommend the Night Yard to anyone looking for a beautiful relaxed charming wedding venue! Thank you to everyone for all their work!

    As soon as we stepped into the venue on our first

    They say a bride just knows and it feels right when she finds the dress, well we got this feeling with our Venue! As soon as we stepped into the venue on our first viewing we knew it was for us, our kids instantly ran off to explore leaving us feeling confident this was the perfect venue for our relaxed child filled wedding. I love how the venue can be dressed completely to suit your style, but then is beautiful and rustic as it is. The planning journey was well organised and reassuring as Courtney and the rest of the team had it all in hand. You don’t feel like just another booking, it was always nice to catch up. Thank you, especially Courtney you helped bring our vision to life, we just want to relive it again and again!
