A Place of Wonderment
Take a look around..
Preston court is one of the most stylish venues in the UK. We are a family owned and run venue too which is pretty rare. We welcome equality and inclusivity and embrace our LGBTQIA partners. We encourage humanist and all forms of ceremony.
Set on a large eco- farm with an enchanting barnyard enclosing the victorian carousel, large terracotta pots with leafy plants and interesting flowers, handmade vintage sun umbrellas, and hundreds of tiny fairy lights to create an atmospheric seating area. Come and explore.
The mediterranean inspired barnyard is filled with tumbling plants and exotic dahlias, french style garden seating with a maypole at the centre adorned with 1000 twinkly lights.
Don’t be surprised if Steve the Peacock cheers along with your guests as you say your vows, or if the horses in the surrounding fields start cantering as your reception music starts.
This space will WOW you. Not only is it a 17th century oak frame barn with bags of vintage charm, it has two Art Deco musical organs inside, thousands of twinkly lights AND a giant disco ball.
St Mildred’s is an idyllic rural church at Preston Court Farm. We love to hear the church bells rings.
We are very proud of the eco farm. 650 acres of unpoilt farm with woodlands, lakes and extensive manicured gardens. We plant a tree in celebration of every wedding we host.
This space is cosy and full of eccentric charm….and it is home to our famous lavatories which have gorgeous clam shell sinks with trendy gold taps.
The Showman of the 1800’s travelled the length and breath of the country with their carousels.
Of course every Showman needed somewhere to eat and sleep so they spent their days in this glorious Wagon. This is one of the most spectacular, its adorned with ornately decorated mirrors, mahogany panelled doors and has hand painted walls and ceilings.
Our carousel dates back to the 1800’s and is a real head turner. Twisted brass, vintage mirrors, hundreds of warm amber coloured fairground lights and of course dancing horses and carriages.
The Mortier Organ is an art deco treasure.
It plays all sorts of up-beet jazzy songs and it its own Saxaphone and accordien, as well as hundreds of wooden ‘keys’ inside which produce its incredible sound.
A Photobooth on steroids. Often sentimental and always a bit damn silly.
Marc will be the host and ask some interesting questions about the guest’s day. The footage is carefully edited into a snappy and usually witty, video diary.
We all love food. We are proud to work in partnership with some incredibly skilled chefs and event staff.
Kent grows some pretty impressive fruit and vegetables and what could be fresher or more sustainable than serving food all produced within 30 miles of Preston Court?
Anna’s father Michael started off his career in steam, by driving around the world in a steam powered Lorry called ‘Britannia’.
Britannia steamed out of Trafalgar Square in 1969 on her ‘Grand Global Tour, with John Lennon and Paul McCartney of the Beatles sitting next to him the cab. It was quite send off.
Michael, little Steve and Martin drove through Europe to India, Australia and back via north America.
Preston Court Farm
The Wilderness is hidden away on the other side of the farm.
Gather your friends and family for an unconventional day in complete privacy, surrounded by woods and water meadows, lakes and fragrant wild flowers.
It’s the perfect escape into a magical world of nature.
