The new Maypole of hundreds of twinkly lights is a dreamy setting for dining and dancing. There is a central seating area with stylish vintage seating, surrounded by artistically curated planting to create a mediterranean feel. The 17th century oak frame barns enclose the barnyard, with the merry- go-round acting as a focal point, as the sun goes down behind it.
Flowing around the house, the garden includes a water garden with little spring-fed streams. These feed into the two lakes, around the front lawn and Juliana’s Island. The lakes have recently been dredged of mud for the first time in 150 years, and the garden is constantly being improved.
An ancient Saxon church of St Mildred’s sits with the farm, some distance from the village in a peaceful location. It’s possible to have your marriage ceremony here even if you have no connection with the parish.

Thank you Susie. We really appreciate your help. We are hearing all sorts of horror stories from friends getting married and I can honestly say that I cannot recommend Preston Court enough! From your open day to now, you guys have been amazing. Thanks again and speak soon, Emma and Dan
Dear All of Preston Court. Thank you for the most incredible day - it really was dreamy and all our guests commented on how beautiful the venue is and helpful the staff. It exceeded all our wildest expectations.
We cannot thank everybody at Preston Court enough for all their hard work, continued support and always going the extra mile to ensure we had our dream wedding. When we looked round the venue in summer 2020 with Anna and Jen we knew it was the venue for us and booked it! (Over 2 years in advance!) This venue is so unique as it has those extra touches like the incredible carousel, Gigglebox and resident peacocks Dave and Steve. The staff are incredibly friendly- always! We want to say a special ‘thank you’ to Tiggi for her excellent venue styling, signage making (which will go up on our walls at Home!) and just listening to us and getting our vision for our day. Don’t bother with any other venue styler, she is everything you need and more and is absolutely lovely as are all the staff at Preston court! Thank you, thank you and thank you Preston Court!

Preston Court is a truly unique venue which really suited our relaxed, vintage style wedding. As one guest described it “it was the gift that kept on giving... everywhere you turned there was something different & quirky to look at”. Guest experience was really high on our priority list and Preston Court delivered on all fronts... the staff were fantastic and really helped our vision come to life! Thank you all!!
This is definitely one of the nicest venues I have ever worked in. I was photographing a wedding a while ago and I could definitely see the things from a suppliers experience. The venue not only has fantastic facilities and lots of great places/lands to take photos but also they are very professional and accommodating. They could turn place very quickly from an outdoor ceremony to indoors, depending what the weather would be like. The food was amazing, the staff very professional and friendly. Highly recommended
Preston Court is a wonderful, magical venue and my husband and I would highly recommend it. We had the most magnificent day and would do it all again in a heartbeat. We were so blessed to be surrounded by beautiful people, in a picturesque venue, with fantastic service from the team at Preston Court. Thank you so much for everything you did for us on our wedding day, August 17th 2019.

Dear Preston Court team, Thank you so much for your help and hard work throughout 18months of our wedding planning and our special day. We loved every single minute - Preston Court will forever stay in our hearts. We wish we could do it all over again. Lots of Love Chris and Julija Adams.
We would recommend Preston Court to anyone planning their wedding. It really was the most amazing day and a huge amount of that was due to the incredible staff and beautiful grounds at Preston Court. From our initial point of contact, they were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We fell in love with the venue immediately online and after viewing it, we loved it even more. They made the whole process really easy when it come to securing the date, paying the initial deposit and a clear programme was in place for the run up to the wedding and booking in handy meetings to discuss everything from where an easel was going to go to how many glasses of fizz where needed, when. The day itself was a dream. This sounds odd but we promise it is a massive compliment but, it was like the staff were not even there as it ran SO smoothly and was so well organised. However, when you needed anything extra, they were there at a drop of hat to help. All our guests commented on the staff for being so approachable and accommodating. Furthermore, they all said how stunning Preston Court was and how the day 'flowed' with all the beautiful areas and spaces available. The best venue and team - thanks a million for the most wonderful day!
Everyone LOVED the venue, we had so many people say it was the best wedding they'd been to and that they couldn't get over how amazing Preston Court was. The garden was stunning and everyone loved the carousel, the organs and the peacocks. We loved being able to spread the reception between the grassy bit and the courtyard and I think the guests loved it too. We can't believe how lucky we were with the weather, it all looked stunning. We were very sad to leave yesterday after collecting our stuff thinking it would likely be our last time there.
Everyone at Preston Court were so helpful, friendly and made our wedding day in October so very special. It is an amazing and beautiful venue and we couldn't have imagined getting married anywhere else. Everyone at the wedding commented on how unique the venue was and how lovely the staff were. Thank you for making our day so wonderful and one we will remember forever.
Wow!! Preston Court was the best location and venue I had seen on my initial hunt for the perfect wedding. Quirky, unique, creative and more importantly, somewhere that you can inject a bit of your own personality into. All the staff are super easy to deal with and managed my "control freakiness" with ease!!!!! Nothing was too much trouble and with their stellar recommendations, I had a wedding that Pinterest would be proud of!! I can't recommend these guys enough if you're looking for something less ordinary. AND Gigglebox is very fun. I loved watching the edit and seeing all my mates reactions on film. Great idea and so glad we did it!! A day we'll never forget.xx
