Full Description
We offer bespoke and package weddings, tailored to each couple, so you can have your perfect day, exactly the way you want it. Our dedicated Events Team will take a personal approach to your day and will be on hand to ensure the big day runs smoothly. Our barn wedding venue is licensed to hold civil ceremonies in both the Oak Barn or for outdoor ceremonies, in Gazebo for up to 150 guests. To follow the ceremony, you have the choice of hosting your wedding breakfast in either the Barn, seating up to 70, or our Event Suite seating up to 200. For the main event (or as we see it, the food!) we offer varied menus to suit all. As members of Produced in Kent, we are proud of the quality of our ingredients; the Lamb and Beef are from our own family farms, the Game is from our shoot and we now grow all our own fresh produce onsite, in our kitchen garden. The Ferry House restaurant was awarded Kent Dining Pub of the Year in 2014 and in 2018. Our Evening Reception options include Barn only receptions for up to 100 guests, Barn and Dance floor options which include an additional private wedding bar for up to 150 guests or our entire Event Suite is available to use all day to host the wedding breakfast with a dancing area screened off during your meal which is then revealed in the evening. This option also includes the private wedding bar from after the ceremony, and is suitable for up to 300 guests. To end the day in style and comfort, we have 11 4* B&B rooms on site for you and your guests; including our Bridal Suite with a super king sized sleigh bed, spa bath, lounge area and views across the wedding Patios, Gardens and Estuary. Wake up to an award winning local breakfast and reminisce on the day before. Just off-site, we also have Mocketts Farm Cottages, a complex of five 4* self-catered cottages available to book for 50 plus guests. The perfect ‘next-stop’ for family and friends to stay or to make a weekend of things!

Rustic 5* Wedding Venue
I couldn't recommend the Ferry House Inn highly enough! We had an early January winter wedding and this venue pulled out all the stops. Not only is this place gorgeous the food, drink, staff and accommodation are 5*! The team here provide a stress free day for a fraction of the price of some other venues we researched.

The whole team were so helpful
The whole team were so helpful, nothing was too much trouble, and took so much stress away. Supplier recommendations were spot on and really gave us the atmosphere and wedding day we hoped for. Thank you so much to the whole team, and particularly Steven, who was amazing on the Friday helping to sort out last minute accomodation and who looked after us so well- he really made a difference to easing the stress and panic I first had when I arrived on Friday and Emily for everything running so smoothly on the day and looking exactly how I imagined it to.

Perfect Venue for our Perfect Day
This venue was perfect for our late Autumn wedding. It was so cosy! Everyone at the venue couldn’t have been more helpful and supported us throughout the planning process. We had so many compliments about the venue, not just the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful surroundings..But the food! Amazing! Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

The venue was a stunning setting for our wedding
The venue was a stunning setting for our wedding, and the staff decorated both the barn and event suite perfectly. We really liked having the use of these two separate spaces as well as the outdoor area, to allow for photos with different backdrops, and bring variety to the day for guests. The staff and suppliers on the day were brilliant, and ensured everything ran smoothly. The food was exceptional - all of our guests commented on what a wonderful wedding breakfast it was, and we love that it is locally and organically sourced! Thank you. We were also really keen to have a venue where guests could stay on site or close-by, to allow us to make a weekend of the event. Mocketts farm and the new coach house was perfect for this.

WOW what a wedding!
WOW what a wedding! We haven't quite come back down to earth yet and are still reminiscing about the amazing day we had with you. We both had a the best time, more than we could have ever imagined. All our guests also commented that it was the best wedding they had ever attended! Thank you so much for perfectly planning our day and thank you to the rest of the team who delivered on the day

It was just the most perfect day ever!
We had our wedding here on Friday 7th June 2019 it was just the most perfect day ever Thank you to Victoria, Emily, Angel and all the staff for enabling us to have the Wedding We wished for. From the day of meeting Victoria, emails with the planning team, the DJ and Phil the toastmaster, we was made to feel relaxed and reassured on every little detail. The venue was set up exactly as we wanted. Phil the toastmaster run the day to perfection, we wanted a relaxed , happy day with our family and friends and that’s what we had. The food was all locally sourced, beautifully presented and everyone paid compliments. All the staff on the day worked hard but with smiles. Nothing was too much trouble. Even the local bees decided to enjoy my flowers in my hair. Our wedding cake by Demi’s cakes Flowers by the flower company Photographer was Christopher Bell Would highly recommend Once again Thank you Victoria and your team Love from Mr and Mrs Friday xxx

FAQ
(10)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

So many beautiful weddings, I am not sure I could pick just one!

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

Relax and try to enjoy the planning!

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

Every wedding has so many personal touches I'm not sure I could choose just one!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, Beautiful, Homely, Unique, Romantic

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Oooo this is a hard one! We have quite a few different areas for photos. Personally I have two favorite 'must-have' photo spots and that is by the water and in our secret orchard. Photos by the water are always beautiful and always different depending on weather, timing & tide. We had the most amazing shot of a couple by the estuary between the sunset and a rainbow. LOVE! The Secret Orchard is also a must! We leave the grass and flowers wild and there are always some amazing shots in there.

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

Did we ever say that Jude Law stayed here not long ago whilst filming?!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Oooo has to be the mini burgers with beef from our family farm

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

It has to be our Signature wedding cake! Chocolate brownie wrapped in malted white chocolate cheesecake...

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Has to be our food ethos. We have an extensive kitchen garden where we grow 60% of the fresh produce on our wedding menu. Our beef is all reared on the neighboring nature reserve and game is all shot on the Harty Estate. We even serve gin that is made from the grain from our farm!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The part of the business we are the proudest of has to be our team! We genuinely are a Ferry House family and without everyone in every department being passionate about the part they play, we would not be able to pull off the amazing weddings that we do. Plus we have a great sense of humour...
