    Flexibility, kindness and professionalism

    Due
    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.

    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!

    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

    Perfect Oak Barn wedding venue in Kent

    We had an August wedding here and couldn't recommend it more. This venue was everything we hoped for and the day was perfect.
    Where to start... the Oak Barn itself is beautiful. If you have a barn in mind this will be how it looks. Plus, it's been upgraded with smart lighting and a great sound system. It has a bar space inside you can use, plus lots of nice touches - like tables made from a tree on site.
    We also made use of the byre for the ceremony itself. Lovely open views of the fields (we wanted the sheep to be visible which they kindly helped facilitate) and it opens onto a terrace for refreshments afterwards. Using this made it super easy for us as the Barn could already be set up for us to use for the breakfast. No stress setting it up between ceremony and food.
    We also loved the cottages on site and used them before and after the day. They've been furnished to a great standard and the convenience of being on site both nights cannot be overstated.
    The outside spaces are perfect for pictures, and combined with the nice weather meant everyone had a wonderful time mingling.
    Finally, Tim and Deana were the best hosts, giving us helpful suggestions and supporting us throughout the stressful planning. Plus, their dog is the best!!

    All in all this venue literally ticked every box for us. And it was the second one we looked at! Don't hesitate to use it if you like what you see.

    The Oak Barn, Frame Farm's reply:

    We are so pleased the weekend was everything you hoped it would be - it was a joy to have you here not just for your big day but also for the various visits during the planning stages. We (dog included!) wish you every happiness for the future and hope to see you here again soon. Tim and Deana.

    The perfect venue for your Micro Wedding!

    Heritage, character and rural beauty all combine in perfect harmony at The Oak Barn. Nestled in an idyllic valley in the heart of the Weald of Kent, every detail of this Grade II listed venue has been designed to make the perfect setting for your intimate wedding.

    When it comes to your wedding, it’s not just about finding a venue, it’s about discovering somewhere to create memories that will stay with you forever.

    The Oak Barn is a series of stunning buildings situated in a beautiful rural location that bring an authentic elegance to your wedding.

    Whether you are 4 or 30 the 22 acre farm is a stunning venue for your micro wedding. You have the choice of hosting your ceremony and/or reception in The Byre, with its simple elegance and all-encompassing views, or in the magnificent high-vaulted Oak Barn. Both barns have underfloor heating and The Oak Barn has a cosy woodburner.

    Stepping outside The Byre takes you to the secluded terrace, where you can enjoy time with friends or simply take a moment together, watching as the sun sets down the valley.

    At the end of the evening, you do not have to go far to find your sanctuary. Just across the courtyard sits Weaver’s Cottages, five sumptuous cottages for our wedding couples and their guests. The cottages have all been finished impeccably and tastefully decorated with a mix of modern and classical furnishings to create individual spaces that combine elegance, comfort and luxury.

    We realise that these are uncertain, heart breaking times. We are committed to our couples and if their Wedding is affected by covid-19 we listen to their wishes and help them find the best alternative Wedding plan:
