Full Description
Nettlestead Place is a medieval manor listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 set in the heart of Kent. It has for centuries staged lavish celebrations and is now exclusively available for weddings and other celebrations. The 14th century gatehouse stands to the west of the manor at the start of the private drive and is an impressive entrance for the bridal party. St Mary's Church is the neighbouring church and just a 5 minute walk to Nettlestead Place. Nettlestead Place offers an exclusive unique English country setting with award winning gardens, striking medieval manor, a location that is genuinely a perfect wedding venue. The manor is steeped in history and is still a family home but it can be exclusively used for weddings. It is a true gem of a venue! The 13th century Undercroft is a truly unique location for wedding ceremonies and is characterised by 3 medieval pillars. An historic and striking setting for such an important occasion. The Undercroft can seat up to 120 guests. The stunning Rose Garden is the setting for outdoor ceremonies, with a wooden Gazebo sitting at the base of a large lime tree. The aromas and the beauty of the rose garden make this a truly romantic setting. After the wedding ceremony guests can enjoy champagne and canapes on the broad terraces overlooking the manors sunken pond. The celebrations can continue as guests can wander through the idyllic gardens, famous throughout Europe, across manicured lawns, paths and water features, surveying the beautiful Kent countryside on their way to the wedding marquee.

Nettlestead Place is just amazing
Nettlestead Place is just amazing! We fell in love with it as soon as we saw the pictures of it then when we went to view it, we both just knew no where else would do. The house, the gardens, the setting is all just beautiful and Sharon the wedding co-ordinator was a god send and became a friend, she is so professional and kind. I can hand on heart say Nettlestead Place is my favourite place and would recommend it time and time again ! The food was gorgeous too. Our guests all said how wonderful every aspect of the day was and I truly believe Nettlestead is a special place for sure!

This was the place we wanted to get married at
Nettlestead Place was the first and last venue we visited, as soon as we walked into the Under Croft we knew this was the place we wanted to get married. Sharon and her team did an outstanding job to make our wedding day the best.

we knew we wanted to have our wedding reception he
As soon as we found Nettlestead Place and saw it for ourselves, we knew we wanted to have our wedding reception here! It is such a special and tranquil place with the most beautiful gardens, which our guests enjoyed exploring during the day. We loved the way it had both formal gardens, such as the rose garden, and more informal parts - we particularly loved all the wildflowers, which fitted in with our theme beautifully! Sharon was such a pleasure to work with and was a calm presence in the run-up to the wedding, helping us to shape our wedding to suit what we wanted, even down to the ceilidh in the evening! Annabel and Roy made us feel very much at home and provided us with a lovely breakfast in the morning. Kathleen and Vine Events produced delicious food which all of our guests commented on and looked after our guests so wonderfully on the day itself. We had such a special day: Nettlestead looked beautiful in the sunshine and we can't recommend Nettlestead Place enough. We didn't want to leave!
