Our dedicated caterers, Kudos, will also be on-hand to discuss the range of catering options available. Please let us know if you would like to attend. Telephone: 01892 870307 or email: Nestled in the heart of the peaceful village of Penshurst, in an area of unspoiled countryside in west Kent, lies an enchanting, authentic medieval manor house. Penshurst Place is quintessentially English – romantic, classic and elegant with a rural feel. For nearly seven centuries this characterful home has played host to lavish entertaining, chivalrous acts and notable historic events. Today Penshurst Place, with its beautiful unique rooms, glorious gardens and exquisite hospitality, opens its doors to couples wishing to celebrate the start of their married lives together. We understand that every couple is unique and every wedding individual. Our team of knowledgeable and attentive wedding co-ordinators can offer as much, or as little, guidance and inspiration as you require to make planning your wedding smooth, stress-free and exciting. Drawing on extensive experience, we handpick the very best suppliers for our list of trusted partners to cover every detail. With three impressive banqueting rooms of varying sizes and atmosphere, all under one roof, the beauty of Penshurst Place lies in its flexibility to host a more intimate gathering for a less formal occasion or a large, lavish celebration to amaze and delight your friends and family. We offer a selection of gorgeously appointed locations to perfectly match your requirements.

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

Ask as many questions as you feel you need to be comfortable about your wedding. This is YOUR day, and we are here to make sure that everything you're looking for comes to fruition. Don't be afraid to ask us questions as often as you need to to ensure that on the day itself you're not stressed over anything.

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

Couples often put their most personal touches into their table plans, with tables named after important places in the lives, locations of dates, names of pets, and even favourite sweets! It's always a pleasure to see our couples showcase their personality at their wedding!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

unique, characterful, tranquil, historical, picture-perfect

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Too many to choose from! For large expansive shots, the Italian Garden with the house in the background is a must, elsewhere Coronation Walk which is lined with beautiful old apple trees is a beautiful spot for more rustic images.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The medieval Baron's Hall. It was completed in 1341 and features an original 60 feet high chestnut-beamed roof.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our team. Outside of the immediate weddings team is a small collection of helpers from other departments who are just as passionate about weddings here as we are, many of us married here ourselves and they all help out with getting the rooms ready for our couples if we need them.
