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.Sent on 17/09/2019
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'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.

A beautiful venue for the perfect wedding day
We had our wedding at Frame Farm in July this year. The venue has been converted with amazing attention to detail and the overall setting is idyllic. Both the inside and outdoor areas provided such great spaces for all aspects our day. The Byre gave us an intimate feel to the ceremony and accommodated our 100+ guests comfortably. The terrace was great for post ceremony drinks and was a secondary space for guests after our meal in the main barn. The courtyard enabled our guests to choose to relax outside or spend time on the dance floor. Tim and Deana were very helpful and attentive through our whole planning process and supported all our suppliers on the day. The accommodation for guests on site is stunning and helped make the whole weekend just perfect. I would have no hesitation recommending the venue and really encourage couples to opt to have the farm for the whole weekend, it made the day so less stressful and rushed.Sent on 05/09/2019
The Oak Barn's reply:It was a great pleasure hosting your wedding here Richard. You and Mark were so creative in designing a very unique day here at The Oak Barn and we loved the 'Projection Cake' which summed up your lives together so beautifully. We are delighted it was the perfect start to your marriage and we wish you every happiness.

Perfect Kent Countryside Wedding
We had our wedding at Frame Farm, on the 26/05/19. The location is incredibly idyllic, set in the beautiful Kent countryside, all of our guests were blown away with how amazing the venue was.Sent on 13/06/2019
Tim and Deana allowed us to visit the venue with our friends, family, caterers, photographer etc on numerous occasions, which made the preparation so much easier and they were on hand to assist or answer any questions when needed, over the entire period.
We would recommend this venue to anyone, it's a perfect setting for such a special day and run by a lovely couple.
The Oak Barn's reply:This was a very special day for us too, Robert and Katy. You were the first couple to view the barns early in the restoration. It was great to have our first truly local wedding; a bride from the village and so many talented suppliers from within a few miles of the farm to create your magical day. It was a real pleasure to host you and we look forward to seeing you soon in the village.
