My absolutely perfect day.
This venue ticks all the boxes with the chapel upstairs giving you a traditional feel, the beautiful bar with its checkered dance floor downstairs & pretty marquee all set in stunning surroundings. You feel like you’re a million miles away from anywhere. Everything is in-house so you don’t waste time & get stressed looking for suppliers. The florist gave me exactly what I wanted, the catering company was outstanding with people commenting on the food & servers never leaving you with an empty glass. & as for Zena & Libby-they made me feel so at ease in the build up that I didn’t worry about a thing. The day went exactly as I wanted it & that’s down to the professionalism & expertise of everyone involved with the Priory. They won Best Heritage Wedding Venue of the Year at the Kent Wedding Awards this year & it was completely deserved. A magical place that you can revisit for afternoon tea or stay in the B & B in the Edwardian Manor House. Highly recommended.

Exceeded Everyone's Expectations
We got married here on the 8th July 2017. It is a truly magical venue, owned by the beautiful Libby Lawson who's laid back approach and can-do attitude won our hearts (and money!!). Nothing was too much trouble, and they were very accommodating with our special requests. Totally flexible, whatever we wanted, they did, no questions asked (or raised eyebrows!) and on the day they really pulled it off. All of our guests were very well looked after, the food amazing, they were always there but you'd never know it. A perfect example of total professionals, without the arrogance. Everyone has commented on what a spectacular venue it was, they were well fed and those who spoke to Libby loved her as much as we did. Please put your trust in the team here at St Augustine's Priory...we did and they exceeded all of our expectations and more. They really know what they are doing...and some! Thank you Libby, Zena, Rob and the team for making our special day really memorable for all the right reasons. You were fabulous. I hope to be able to visit the sunken garden to have another blessing in 10 years time! Photo by jasondoddphotography
