The Setting

Marleybrook House is an immaculately presented 17th Century ‘chocolate box’ thatched farmhouse full of unique character, history and old world charm. The five acres of gardens, paddocks and woodland provide the perfect setting for a quintessential English country wedding.

The former home to the legendary international singer, actress and cabaret star Eartha Kitt, Marleybrook House is in a secluded location, offering total privacy and exclusivity, yet just 7 miles from the city of Canterbury.

The Vibe

I married in an English garden setting, so on a personal note, I’m quite smitten with Marleybrook House. This is a fun loving venue, that is both refined and rustic in equal measures. Marleybrook House is full of nostalgia and quirky original features such as a haywain, gypsy wagon, showman’s caravan, butchers bike, red telephone box and much, much more!

The owners pride themselves on offering a carefully selected, high-calibre team to ensure your day is absolutely your perfect vision – whether that’s a classic affair or a relaxed boho celebration. The exquisite high-end food, crystal glassware, luxury linens and tableware create quite the wedding breakfast scene for you and your guests. The grand marquee is adorned with crystal chandeliers, stone urns with spiral topiary and bay trees lit with twinkling lights.

If you are seeking something entirely unique, their Vintage Fun Fair will certainly wow guests! Experience all the fun of the fair with an array of attractions to include the 20 meter high – Sky Dancer Big Wheel, adult-sized Victorian Swing Boats, High Striker, Coconut Shie plus many more traditional side stalls, games and props that create authentic and vintage charm from yesteryear.

Their in-house food specialists provide an extensive range of food and can design a menu to suit all individual tastes and requirements.

Their stylish Bridal Studio offers a private, peaceful and comfortable space for any preparations prior to the ceremony. The Wedding Suite is included in the venue hire for the wedding night. The Wedding Suite can also sleep up to six guests and may be available for hire the night prior the wedding.
