Full Description
Originally built in 1735, the Kingston Estate is breathtakingly stylish; featuring a marquetry staircase, library, bars, courtyard, hot tub, a rose garden, walled garden and 18th century parterre garden, you’ll find spaces you’ll love at every turn. What’s more, it is available for exclusive use hire meaning it can become your own private estate for the entirety of your wedding. To make sure your day runs like clockwork, the Kingston Estate will assign you with your own personal wedding planner and team to bring your wedding vision to life, leaving you with plenty of time to spend with your friends and family. Thanks to a number of licensed ceremony areas you can chose to marry in the grand Marble Hall, the snug and cosy Drawing Room, the Walled Garden, the Rose Garden, the Linhay Barn, and for a real statement, the sweeping staircase of the Manor House. The Estate’s in-house bar manager can create your very own drinks package for your wedding day; from champagne to aperitifs, they can even create a bespoke wedding cocktail specially for your day. Our well respected creative catering team specialise in local, seasonal produce. They can provide anything and everything from pre-wedding street style food to get the weekend started, breakfast stations to absorb any headaches, delectable canapes to keep any hunger at bay, to the main meal itself with formal plated meals, or table feasts. The choice is yours and everything is tailored to you, there are no set menus here. When the dinner and speeches are over, you and your guests can head down to the Undercroft, our secret boutique nightclub for the party to end all parties!

Beautiful weekend
A beautiful weekend holding and celebrating our wedding at Kingston Estate. Even the storm didn’t stop us! Kingston is an amazing venue both inside and out set in the beautiful Staverton countryside. Our guests arrived Friday and didn’t want to leave on the Sunday! The accommodation is spectacular and very affordable for our guests. 85 guests being able to stay there is priceless. Jodie the wedding co ordinator is a star who knows her stuff. A huge thank you to Kingston Estate and Jodie. If your looking for a weekend venue for a wedding... then this is the place.

Amazing from start to finish
WOW we had the time of our lives. All our friends and family said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We partied all weekend. I want to do it all again. The staff and team were brilliant the food is out of this world. The accommodation is relaxed and luxurious. The Kingston Estate is utterly stunning it will blow you away and its much better than the website. Our guests loved the night club.

We stumbled across the Kingston Estate
When we got engaged I had no idea where I wanted to get married. I just wanted to make sure our day was filled with high spirits, love and a good old knees up! I started to look at venues and was underwhelmed nothing I saw felt right. We wanted a venue that would let us be us, that didn’t make you feel like the next couple on the package wedding conveyor belt in at 8am and guests out by 12. We wanted to make it all last as long as possible. Then we stumbled across the Kingston Estate and everything fell into place! Kingston Estate as a venue has a class and vibe all of it’s own and when you add everyone you love to this it’s just the perfect match. We loved all the spaces available, especially the yurt which we decided to get married in. The Cottage accommodation was perfect to make this the most amazing Wedding weekender! Finishing with the Club style Undercroft we knew that this wedding was going to go off with a bang! We got married last Saturday and the comments and praise we have had from guests re the venue has been fantastic everyone loved the food, the setting and the feel of the day. They were so impressed by all the areas. We wanted to make sure we hosted the biggest party of our lives and Kington Estate made that dream come true! We are still on Cloud 9 no wedding blues for us. A massive thank you to Jamie, Sarah, Hayley, JoJo and Marie-Anne for all your help and support. Also to Sam Box Photography and HollyHocks Florist such amazing professionals. We will be back don’t you worry already plotting a first anniversary visit!! A million times thank you The New Mr & Mrs Bromley.xxx

The venue was everything
Kingston estate took our breath away when we first viewed it but nothing prepared us for how we would feel on our wedding day! The venue was everything and more and made our dreams come true! Our guests all commented on how amazing it was from the variety of locations to use, facilities and the friendly staff, one of them describing the day as a fairytale. I would like to say a massive thank you to Marie Anne and all the team for giving my husband and I our perfect day we couldn’t have imagined a more magical wedding! Words will never be enough!

Perfect Setting
Myself and my partner got married here on the weekend. It was the most perfect setting and we had so many comments from our guests about how beautiful the grounds were. Having the different elements to our wedding in different areas - the marble hall, barn, undercroft etc made everything stress free. The outside area of the Linhay was just picturesque. We really enjoyed our weekend as we stayed from the Friday. Nothing was too much trouble, the food was delicious and the service was of an incredibly high standard. Guests enjoyed staying in the self catering cottages and were looked after well. Marie-Anne was completely helpful and supportive in every way and to every fine detail. All of our wishes and requests were met at every point. We would whole heartedly recommend Kingston as a wedding venue and look forward to returning one day. — with Chris Giddings.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We like all weddings to be completely bespoke to each couple, so in all honesty it's hard to pick a favourite wedding, but there are definitely a few each year that stand out. For example L&H had a beautiful wedding weekend in September 2019, and worked hard to ensure that H's Iranian heritage was included in all aspects of the wedding, sadly it rained all weekend but that didn't stop them all from embracing the weather, they even braved the rain for a ceremonial Iranian sword dance in the courtyard!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Please remember that its your wedding weekend so you can do whatever you like and you don't have to conform to wedding traditions if you don't want to!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

From personalised tambourines, wedding Gin favours, luggage tags, and temporary tattoos we've nearly seen it all, but there's always room for new ideas!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Exclusive - Stylish - Extraordinary - Timeless - Unique

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There are so many to choose from it's hard to pick our favourite, but you can't beat the confetti shot on the South Garden steps, and walking through the Partiere Gardens towards the house.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We believe all guests are just as important each other, and like to think we treat everyone as a celebrity but we have been fortunate to host, Amanda Holden, the cast of Gavin & Stacey & Made in Chelsea, and most recently some very famous cricketers!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Seared fillet of beef on toasted sourdough with white truffle vinaigrette, lemon & rocket cress

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Shwarma - Chicken or Roasted cauliflower with tahini and caramelised onion wrapped in homemade flatbread

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our secret boutique nightclub located in the Undercroft

What part of your business are you most proud of?

That we are always working hard to improve areas, and add more. The wedding industry and trends are always changing so it's important to recognise there is always room for improvement!
