On September 25th 2021 I married my wonderful Husband - Peter Tomlin at Preston Court. After 18 months of uncertainty and worry due to ongoing covid situation, we were extremely lucky to be able to share our special day with our family and friends. From day 1 the team at Preston Court were nothing short of AMAZING! Throughout the months of planning the team answered all our queries, shared useful tips, support, help and came back to all our emails with consideration, kindness and a can-do attitude.

Not only is Preston Court one of the most beautiful locations in Kent, it was the place where we immediately felt at home. This is a family run business with a personal touch that makes you feel like you are the only 2 people in the world getting married and that our day was the only priority. I couldn't have imagined saying our vows and sharing our wedding day with those we loved anywhere else.

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

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.

''Just a quick one as we're mid packing! Thanks so much for your email. We had a great time and Tiggi and Emily were amazing with helping us the whole day and evening and offering to go to Canterbury to get pizza, was so nice to have that support. It must be so knackering for them but you could never tell.

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.

We had the most wonderful wedding day. It was amazing and even better than we imagined. The Staff were all so lovely and we really enjoyed our trips to Preston Court to meet the Vicar at St Mildred's and then Jenny and Anna.

We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all your help in the lead up to the wedding, as well as the big day itself.... Matt and I had such a wonderful day and our family and friends are still talking about it.... P.S. we think there may have been something in your water because my sister, cousin, bridesmaid and myself are all pregnant and are all due in June 🙂

``The 23 Most Spectacular Places To Get Married In The UK (No.5 on the list). With a caravan and a carousel, this location is so perfectly boho...``

Listed at No.5 in Buzzfeed’s list!

A 17th century Kentish barn, near Canterbury, England, Preston Court is perhaps one of the prettiest and most iconic barn venues in the UK. Whimsical, beautiful and utterly unique, the traditional barn is home to some stunning fairground organs, with the choice of a vintage carousel outside to match.

This epic venue can hold up to 120 for dinner, with a variety of catering options and table set-ups. The wider estate is home to a pretty stone church, and an atmospheric island garden for outdoor weddings. If you’re looking for a barn venue in England with wow factor, this is probably, The One.

Listed as one of the world’s 10 best barn venues, according to Bridal Musings.

A spellbinding Kent venue full of magic and mystique.
