KENTFIELD COUNTRY WEDDINGS
Kentfield Country Weddings is the perfect venue for those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of urban life. Here you can disappear into the wonderful Kent countryside with the sound of skylarks singing above you or the splashing of a jumping trout on the lake.
Every wedding we hold is unique, entirely bespoke for you as we only host a limited number of weddings.
We also hold a marriage license so why not exchange your vows in our African lapa on the edge of our beautiful 4 acre lake.
At Kentfield country estate we want to create the most perfect day for you so we work with The Swan in West Malling who have a wealth of experience in managing and operating large events at both its own site and external venues.
Our dedicated Events Manager will be responsible for each wedding held here and will be there to assist you along the way.
We have several vintage Aston Martin cars which can be included to make your day extra special. You can even take a trip in our vintage Norfolk launch Boat across our lake after you have tied the knot, with our African lodge in the background ensuring the very best photo opportunities.
On the day of your wedding, The Swan will have an onsite Events Manager and a Duty Chef, who will be in charge of ensuring your wedding runs smoothly and everyone has the most amazing day.
Once safely parked or dropped off at Kentfield Estate, the bride and groom and all of their guests will be greeted at the Lapa by a team from The Swan and offered an arrival drink. When lunch or dinner is ready to be served, guests will take their seats and will be looked after by The Swan for the duration of the meal. After dinner, The Swan’s bar service will begin, as will the approved DJ. You can then stroll into your beautiful marquee to celebrate your marriage and dance the night away under the stars… As the temperature drops and your night comes to a close, why not enjoy a drink by the warmth of our woodland fire pit.

We even have available a genuine Aston Martin Junior, which was built by Aston Martin, and this can be used for wedding pictures for younger page boys or bridesmaids, so they do not feel left out of the action………..
Moving away from cars, an alternative for those clients also looking to arrive at the venue in an unusual but very stylish way, we have a Teak decked Norfolk launch boat call “Pipsqueak” she is a hand built beauty, which is operated by electric motors avoiding any petrol or diesel smells.
After being dropped off in a vintage car of your choice at our oak jetty on the edge of the lake, you can walk down the red carpet to board our vintage Norfolk launch boat with your partner and sail gently to the other side of the lake to be greeted by your guests at the African lapa before going through to the Marquee for speeches / toasts and to dine then party the night away.”

My wife and I recently had our wedding reception at Kentfield Country Estate, Offham, Kent.
When looking for a suitable venue we found many locations that insisted on using their own caterers, DJ, bar ect but we desired to arranged our own suppliers. Through a few searches on google we found Kentfield Country Estate, so swiftly made an appointment to meet with Ian from the estate. Ian showed us both around the extensive grounds which are nothing short of stunning. As soon as seeing the beautiful venue we knew this is where we wanted to celebrate our wedding, and upon talking to Ian we quickly established that he was more than happy to accommodate anything we required for our reception including our choice of food suppliers, Band, etc.
Not only does Kentfield Country Estate have the most exquisite surroundings, Ian also has what only can be described as an outstanding collection of cars including an extensive selection of unique cars. We were fortunate enough for Ian to drive his Aston Martin DB6 Volante for our wedding which all of the guests were very impressed with, in fact I think many of them were more interested with the vehicle than our wedding. On the actual wedding day Ian’s priority and main focus was all about my wife and constantly checking she was ok and if there was anything she needed he would arrange it, nothing was too much trouble. Ian made the whole process easy, relaxing and problem free.
Whilst we were waiting for the guests to arrive from the church to the venue we were able to have a few minutes to relax in Ian’s garden with a cold beverage which was unexpected and extremely kind of him. The whole ambiance of the venue was absolutely amazing and there was such a great atmosphere with people in the African Lapa sipping their drinks by the lake and listening to music. I would never hesitate in using Kentfield Country Estate again or recommending the venue to friends and family, we are even thinking of planning our 1st year anniversary there next year!
Mr and Mrs Williams
We were so lucky to be the first wedding held at Kentfield Country Estate, we could not have asked for a more amazing venue or a better person to deal with than Ian.
The venue itself is enough to fall in love with, but with Ian’s helpfulness and friendly manner it was just a joy to organise our event. We decided to have our joint ‘Sten’ Party there, with a day clay pigeon shooting. It was a beautiful setting for a great day, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and Ian and his team were beyond helpful and professional the whole day. It made a great prelude to the big day!
The lake is the element we really wanted; it just creates such a peaceful and calm atmosphere, something we wanted our wedding to be. The lodge is just a fantastic place, really cosy and romantic, and just a blank canvas for decorating and a great place to put the dancefloor! There is a clear path all the way round the lake, and when you get halfway round you can look back on the lodge and see it in all its glory!
Ian was just so helpful and accommodating the whole way through, he really made us feel as though he wanted our day to be as special as we wanted it to be. Nothing was too much trouble for him, and he kindly chauffeured us from the Church to the venue, in one of his gorgeous vintage Aston Martin’s.
I cannot recommend this place enough as a wedding venue, it truly is a special place. It’s an incredibly unique, romantic and stunning place, and if you want your day to be magical then this is the place.
