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!

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...
