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 create 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 houses 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

As soon as we stepped into the venue on our first
Venue Service

By Nema and John, on 27 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 26 May 2019

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!

This is a most sincere Thank You
Venue Service

By Caroline & Ed, on 16 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Oct 2018

This is a most sincere Thank You for hosting such a perfect day for us. Our wedding was absolutely perfect...The Night Yard as our chosen venue was complimented by every guest as the most beautiful and relaxed environment for such an occasion which we agree wholeheartedly. Ed and I appreciated Courtney's help so much. were outstanding and went above and beyond...looking after our chorus singing dog when he threatened to drown out the ceremony...distracting the children whilst we were decorating...adjusting the climate control to accommodate our guest's needs...everything you did was appreciated so very much. Our wedding was the happiest day we have had, and The Night Yard made it happen. So again...Thank you. We thoroughly recommend you all for anyone wanting to hire a venue as the perfect choice. With appreciation

The most incredible place!
Venue Service

By Rachel Toolan, on 03 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Aug 2018

When we discovered The Night Yard online we had a feeling it was going to be something very special. From visiting, we fell in love with it. The Night Yard offers the most amazing space and even with quite a lot of rain on the day on the day every contingency was thought of by the team! Courtney, Nancy and all of The Night Yard team were hugely supportive throughout our planning process and had an incredible list of contacts who could facilitate every aspect of what we wanted to pull together. It was clear - whether it be correspondence via email, conversations on the phone or as a face-to-face meeting - that the team knew what we were after. Their help and advice throughout was second-to-none. Our wedding was the most incredible day and so many people commented on how wonderful The Night Yard was as a venue. The Night Yard really really is a hugely special venue. Now, just to figure out how we can do it all over again!

Amazing Wedding
Venue Service

By Amy & Chris, on 16 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Aug 2018

Words can't describe how incredible this venue and the team are. From the moment we booked in 2016 right up until yesterday, The Night Yard has been amazing. We were super confident in their abilities and the team helped up plan and pull of an amazing Wedding, helping us with things we'd not even considered, and working with all our suppliers to make sure everything ran smoothly on the day. So many of our guests commented on how lovely the venue was and the team proved how right we were to book here. Shout specifically to Julia, Nancy, and Courtney, and also to Brendan the bar manager, your help and support has been incredible. I was so sad to say good bye when it was all over, and I'm currently mulling over what other events we can put on just so we can go back. I'd recommend this venue to anyone and particularly if you are looking at having some DIY elements, you can truly put your own mark on this place. Thank you so much team!!

AMAZING!! The staff and venue are just fantastic. I had the best wedding day I could have wished for and its thank to this amazing team. Courtney is so helpful, nothing is too much trouble for her. She completely takes all the stress out of the day. All our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was even in the rain. Would highly recommend.

Staff were fanatic and on the day
Venue Service

By Georgina & Nikki, on 16 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Aug 2018

We had our wedding on the 2nd August it was everything a more we could have wanted. Staff were fanatic and on the day they were there to support if needed. Courtney was a massive help and keep communication with us at all times. We had a very laid back chilled day which is just what we wanted. Every guest commented on how amazing the venue was and the kids all could play safe why the parents relaxed at the bar as its all enclosed.

Thank You!

By Michael, on 16 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Jul 2018

I just wanted to thank Courtney and everyone at The Night Yard for helping to make the wedding of my daughter Francesca to Rob on 21 July such a wonderful occasion. It was a magical day. Would you be good enough to pass on my thanks to all of your partners (eg DJ/MC, caterers, bar) who contributed to the day.

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!!!!

There are not enough words to descried my feeling
Venue Service

By Nicole & Chris, on 16 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Jul 2018

When we first booked the night Yard in 2016, we were the first booking for 2018 at the time so we had a long wait! We finally got married on 14th July 2018 and there aren’t enough words to describe my feelings about the day or the venue, it was just incredible. Courtney is so on the ball and helped us through the build up, asking all the right questions, things that we had no idea about! And on the day she was there making sure everything was on time and prompting us when needed. Brendan (the bar manager) is also a top guy and was so accommodating to what we needed and wanted, he knows his stuff. A great addition to the night Yard. We might have an anniversary party here just to be able to come back! Absolutely loved everything about it!

We fell in Love with the night yard the first time
Venue Service

By Holly & Lee, on 16 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 12 Jul 2018

We fell in Love with the night yard the first time we saw it, it was a bright spring day and as we walked around I was already planning our Wedding day! The night yard was the first and last venue we looked at, we were sold! From the initial viewing to the day itself the staff at the Night yard were a pleasure to work alongside, they were so professional and accommodating and couldn’t do enough to help bring our vision to life. We already had a good idea of what we wanted but the expertise and experience that the staff brought to the day was invaluable and the recommended suppliers that the Night yard promote are all first class. We were made to feel empowered with every decision we had to make as opposed to stifled and the balance of support they offer is just spot on. The day itself came around so very quickly and again the staff were great, the whole journey was so smooth and expertly planned that there was no doubt in our minds that our wedding day would be anything other than magical. Each and every one of our guests were swooning over the venue and having such a big family with lots of children for us, the needs of the children were paramount, the venue is as such that the children are safe in a huge outdoor space and the options for entertaining them were endless. I would like to thank each and every member of staff who helped make our day the best day of our lives, we have memories to treasure and possibly a 40th party to plan at the Night Yard once I’ve talked my husband round!

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 ??)
