Incredible Team, Beautiful Venue
I can't praise the Oak Barn at Frame Farm highly enough. My partner and I were due to be Married there in 2020. We’ve had to change our plans and dates multiple times due to lockdowns and travel restrictions.Sent on 14/01/2021
Repeatedly postponing a Wedding has been frustrating, but it's been made so much easier by Deana, Tim and Polly, whose communication, efficiency, kindness, patience and support have been tireless. We haven't had our Wedding yet, but wanted to leave a review to say how brilliant the team have been and how wonderful the venue is.
For the past year, we’ve been living down the road from the Oak Barn, and you can't help but gawp at this beautifully renovated, lovingly cared-for farm whenever you pass by. Every Season compliments the farm in its own way - the lambs in the Spring, the sunsets in the Summer (right over one of their fields), the colours in the Autumn, and the underfloor heating, wood-burner and fairy-lights wound around the old, oak-beams make it a magical Winter venue.
It's a 5min walk to one of the best pubs in the area (The Bull - live music and pies), it's surrounded by footpaths through ancient woodland and 'areas of outstanding natural beauty', and Weavers Cottages and the Venue buildings and kitted out with everything you'd need to accommodate the perfect celebration or get-away.
We’re very grateful to the Oak Barn team, and are so looking forward to celebrating our Wedding with them later this year.
The Oak Barn, Frame Farm's reply:We are really very touched by your generous review and appreciate your kindness in recognising the care we have taken in supporting you through the heartache of your wedding postponements. It has been such an emotional year for everyone but distressing for you to go through so much uncertainty whilst planning such an important and joyful moment in your lives.

Flexibility, kindness and professionalism

to the constantly changing regulations on weddings due to Covid-19, we unfortunately didn’t yet have the chance to celebrate our wedding at the Oak Barn.
We can though share how an amazing experience we have had so far despite the postponement of our wedding.
Tim and Deana have been truly amazing, flexible and caring for us. Always putting our wishes and need first.
All meetings have been a pleasure and always led to agreement on what is the best for us. We have had constant support in each step of the organisation and also to rearrange
all for next year. We have full confidence that we will have a blast when we finally can celebrate our wedding there.
Thanks so much to both Tim and Deana for their amazing service and dedication. The venue is absolutely beautiful !
Can’t wait to celebrate next year.
The Oak Barn, Frame Farm's reply:We are really touched by your words, Craig and Clémence, thank you! We can't imagine how heartbreaking this has been for you, and other couples in your situation, having your Wedding plans thwarted by the global public health situation. It means so much to know that we have helped in a small way and that you have felt supported by us in your decision to celebrate your wedding next year. We know your Wedding celebrations here at The Oak Barn will be incredibly special, and even more magical for being so keenly anticipated by us all. Deana & Tim

Perfect wedding venue in the beautiful Kent countryside
We were lucky enough to get married at The Oak Barn, Frame Farm in October 2020 and would highly recommend this amazing venue to anyone planning a wedding or other special event. The Oak Barn and the on-site cottages have been beautifully renovated and restored to the highest standards, combining luxury and comfort. The owners Tim & Deana were a pleasure to deal with from the very beginning, and although we unfortunately had to postpone our original April wedding plans due to the pandemic, they made such a positive difference to our wedding planning (and re-planning!) experience through these difficult times. They are understanding, flexible and so helpful, always responding quickly and positively to any queries and working with us to plan our special day. We decided to go ahead with our ‘mini-wedding’ this year and enjoyed a small, intimate celebration with our close family – the venue is perfectly suited to smaller scale events as well as larger weddings and we’ll be returning next year for the big party and wedding reception with all of our original guests – we cannot wait!Sent on 10/11/2020
The Oak Barn, Frame Farm's reply:Thank you for your very kind words, Hannah. It was truly wonderful to be able to host your and Alex's micro wedding here at the farm after such a long wait. After such a difficult year and heartbreak for our lovely couples it was fabulous to see your wedding day bring joy back to the barns, which have been very quiet this year. We thought your ceremony in The Byre and reception in The Oak Barn worked beautifully for you and your guests. You have been a pleasure to deal with despite the difficult situation so we thank you both for that, and we are also glad that we helped make the disappointment of your two postponements easier. We wish you both every happiness in your married life together and we have to admit to already being really excited about next year's wedding reception! Deana & Tim
