helped us to achieve the cosy, boho chic vibe
Venue Service

By Chelsea Reay, on 27 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 23 Mar 2019

A massive THANK YOU. The venue looked incredible and many guests commented on how gorgeous the barn was. It helped us achieve the cosy, boho chic vibe we wanted. We barely had to decorate as the architecture of the barn is so beautiful that it created the perfect ambience. The space is very flexible, enabling us to get the intimate atmosphere we really wanted for our wedding ceremony. Having two spaces was perfect - we could have a band and not worry about sound checks, your set-up was ideal for our needs. Although the weather was fairly grey, the countryside views from The Byre were gorgeous and we loved being able to get some photographs on the pontoon by the pond. We loved the bridal cottage - the lovely little finishing touches like soft towels, nice shampoo and conditioner in the showers, a really comfy bed and well equipped kitchen made it feel like a luxury experience. We loved staying on site with our closest friends and family, and the fact it’s gated was perfect for our daughter to toddle around and go and see the field of sheep whenever she wanted! Thank you so much to both of you as well for being so wonderful to work with. From the outset you’ve been incredibly efficient and informative, super accommodating and generally lovely and friendly - we didn’t have this experience with some of the venues we looked at before choosing The Oak Barn, it really makes a difference! Thanks also for being on hand during the day to deal with any little things that cropped up. No event will ever run 100% smoothly and it’s often how these little niggles are dealt with that make or break the day, and you certainly ensured our day was made.

Memories were created that will last us a lifetime
Venue Service

By Emma Stanton & Andy Cummins, on 21 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 23 Feb 2019

We got married at The Oak Barn - Frame Farm in Feb 2019. It was such an amazing day where memories were created that will last us a lifetime. The venue is peaceful and calming nestled in the Kent countryside. It manages to balance modern and rustic perfectly, creating an intimate and private atmosphere with multiple spaces that can be used in a variety of ways for entertaining guests. it was exactly what we wanted, I just wish I could do it all again.

It looked magical when filled with love ones
Venue Service

By Kate Hamp, on 05 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Feb 2019

What a wedding venue! We were lucky enough to be the first wedding at The Oak Barn in February 2019 and honestly cannot recommend it enough. The venue is absolutely stunning, we looked at many barns in the area and The Oak Barn is totally unique venue for any season. It’s one of the only barns to be able to host a winter wedding....there is a beautiful log burner and heated flooring. It is so beautiful even when empty, so looked magical when filled with love ones and simple decor. The lighting in the barn is really special and as it got dark it became even more romantic. The barn was the perfect size for us to have real atmosphere at our wedding...the dance floor was never empty. The bridal cottage and other cottages on site are beautifully furnished and it was so lovely to get ready on site with our friends and family. The Byre (smaller separate barn) allowed us to host our drinks reception against a stunning backdrop of the valley. The venue speaks for itself but the owners Tim & Deana have made an incredible effort to make this a really special (and high spec) venue and have absolutely nailed it. They were a pleasure to work with when planning our wedding and were completely invested in making our wedding exactly what we wanted. They worked brilliantly with our suppliers and gave us lots of local recommendations. It was so lovely to have them be part of our day and I truly wish them every success for the future. I will look forward to looking at pictures of many more weddings at The Oak Barn in the future and have no doubt it will become one of the most sought after venues in the area.

A romantic vision of what a country can be
Venue Service

By Peter Horne, on 22 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Feb 2019

Yesterday we were guests at Kate’s and Mike’s wedding. Your facility is a romantic vision of what a country can be. Great organisation of the property, good parking, several options of ancillary rooms, and brilliant views. This was a winter event so the outdoor space was just a view of sunlit snow dusted fields, come spring it will be even more amazing when the terraces can be used as well.
