Thanks for taking a look at our gorgeous venue set amongst Kent apple orchards. The space in The Night Yard is really charming and we do recommend you take a look in person as the photos do not do it justice. Please do get in touch if you would like to visit us or if you have any more questions that we might be able to help with.

Beautiful and Rustic
They say a bride just knows and it feels right when she finds the dress, well we got this feeling with our Venue! As soon as we stepped into the venue on our first viewing we knew it was for us, our kids instantly ran off to explore leaving us feeling confident this was the perfect venue for our relaxed child filled wedding. I love how the venue can be dressed completely to suit your style, but then is beautiful and rustic as it is. The planning journey was well organised and reassuring as Courtney and the rest of the team had it all in hand. You don’t feel like just another booking, it was always nice to catch up. Thank you, especially Courtney you helped bring our vision to life, we just want to relive it again and again!

Such a perfect Day.
This is a most sincere Thank You for hosting such a perfect day for us. Our wedding was absolutely perfect...The Night Yard as our chosen venue was complimented by every guest as the most beautiful and relaxed environment for such an occasion which we agree wholeheartedly. Ed and I appreciated Courtney's help so much. Courtney. you were outstanding and went above and beyond...looking after our chorus singing dog when he threatened to drown out the ceremony...distracting the children whilst we were decorating...adjusting the climate control to accommodate our guestws needs...everything you did was appreciated so very much. Our wedding was the happiest day we have had, and The Night Yard made it happen. So again...Thank you. We thoroughly recommend you all for anyone wanting to hire a venue as the perfect choice.

The most amazing place!
When we discovered The Night Yard online we had a feeling it was going to be something very special. From visiting, we fell in love with it. The Night Yard offers the most amazing space and even with quite a lot of rain on the day on the day every contingency was thought of by the team! Courtney, Nancy and all of The Night Yard team were hugely supportive throughout our planning process and had an incredible list of contacts who could facilitate every aspect of what we wanted to pull together. It was clear - whether it be correspondence via email, conversations on the phone or as a face-to-face meeting - that the team knew what we were after. Their help and advice throughout was second-to-none. Our wedding was the most incredible day and so many people commented on how wonderful The Night Yard was as a venue. The Night Yard really really is a hugely special venue. Now, just to figure out how we can do it all over again!

I just wanted to thank
I just wanted to thank Courtney and everyone at The Night Yard for helping to make the wedding of my daughter Francesca to Rob on 21 July such a wonderful occasion. It was a magical day. Would you be good enough to pass on my thanks to all of your partners (eg DJ/MC, caterers, bar) who contributed to the day.
