FAQs on Country House and Stately Home Wedding Venues in Kent

How much do stately home venues charge for wedding hire?

As with all wedding venues, costs for stately home and country house weddings vary, but you may be surprised at how affordable some of the options can be! You don’t always need to have an A-list budget to get your own mansion in Kent for your wedding. If you’re looking to cut costs, then consider a midweek wedding or marrying in the low season, such as early spring or late autumn. Winter weddings work perfectly for stately homes too, as they often have large fireplaces and cozy wood-panelled rooms.

Many country house wedding venues will offer you venue hire on an exclusive use basis. This means that the venue is yours alone for the duration of your wedding. Sometimes this will be for your wedding day alone, and in other cases, you can hire your wedding venue for an entire weekend for you and your guests. This may incur an extra charge, but if you want a luxurious weekend of exclusivity for guests with catering staff on hand, then this could be the perfect option for your wedding weekend.
