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

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!

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!!
