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!

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.

Incredible venue, incredible service
We fell in love with Kingston the moment we visited. In fact, we didn’t see another venue because we loved it so much. With incredible outdoor space we were hoping to get married outside, but the great British weather decided it wasn’t to be. Never mind though because the indoor space is epic too! And even more of a bonus you aren’t stuck in the same room all day, and can move around the venue. The views are incredible, the buildings are incredible and the grounds are incredible. Marie-Anne and the team were awesome. They made sure that everything went so perfectly throughout the planning process and on the day. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough!

The one
As soon as we saw this place we knew it was the one. The house and grounds are stunning. Marie-anne organised everything perfectly for us. Cru caterers provided amazing food for the wedding breakfast and Harbour provided perfect entertainment in the evening. Our weekend went perfectly, we can't thank you enough

The venue of our dreams
My Wife and I held our wedding at Kingston Estate in May 2017 and it absolutely was the venue of our dreams. The layout and format of the day flowed perfectly and all of our guests were so impressed with the venue and how organised Marie-Anne and the team made the day feel. Being able to spend the whole weekend there really enabled us to make the most of the celebrations. Thank you so much to Marie-Anne and co for a truely unforgettable time.

Smooth running of the day...
Smooth running of the day. Beautiful venue with great photo opportunities. Since Marie-Anne (event manager) took over our booking, the finer details were all set out and everything was gone though with a fine tooth comb and this really reassured us that everything was taken care of. Always at the end of the phone or on email if we had any questions. Beautiful setting!!!

From start to finish the day of our wedding was the best day of our lives and that was largely down to the amazing venue and the staff who helped us make the day special. Kingston itself is just a stunning venue and the staff went out of their way to ensure everything that we wanted was done and everything went smoothly without a hitch. All of our guests loved the venue with many saying that it was the nicest venue they had ever been to.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

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

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

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

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.

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.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

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!

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

Our secret boutique nightclub located in the Undercroft

What’s your favourite canapé?

Exclusive - Stylish - Extraordinary - Timeless - Unique

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

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 is your venue's most unique feature?

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 part of your business are you most proud of?

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!
