Full Description
Nettlestead Place is a medieval manor listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 set in the heart of Kent. It has for centuries staged lavish celebrations and is now exclusively available for weddings and other celebrations. The 14th century gatehouse stands to the west of the manor at the start of the private drive and is an impressive entrance for the bridal party. St Mary's Church is the neighbouring church and just a 5 minute walk to Nettlestead Place. Nettlestead Place offers an exclusive unique English country setting with award winning gardens, striking medieval manor, a location that is genuinely a perfect wedding venue. The manor is steeped in history and is still a family home but it can be exclusively used for weddings. It is a true gem of a venue! The 13th century Undercroft is a truly unique location for wedding ceremonies and is characterised by 3 medieval pillars. An historic and striking setting for such an important occasion. The Undercroft can seat up to 120 guests. The stunning Rose Garden is the setting for outdoor ceremonies, with a wooden Gazebo sitting at the base of a large lime tree. The aromas and the beauty of the rose garden make this a truly romantic setting. After the wedding ceremony guests can enjoy champagne and canapes on the broad terraces overlooking the manors sunken pond. The celebrations can continue as guests can wander through the idyllic gardens, famous throughout Europe, across manicured lawns, paths and water features, surveying the beautiful Kent countryside on their way to the wedding marquee.

We really did have the BEST day
What a week it has been! Can't quite believe that this time last week we were getting all the final preparations in ready for the next morning. We really did have the BEST day and we are so thankful that you were able to help us arrange it all to be that weekend. It really was the best decision for us! I do have to say a massive thank you as well to your boys and Faith on the bar - they were so friendly and attentive. Please also pass our thanks on to Mark and his team - the food was nice (especially the canapes!) and went down a treat. I'm just sad I didn't get a bacon sarnie in the evening as apparently they were delicious too! Thank you again

Nettlestead Place is just amazing
Nettlestead Place is just amazing! We fell in love with it as soon as we saw the pictures of it then when we went to view it, we both just knew no where else would do. The house, the gardens, the setting is all just beautiful and Sharon the wedding co-ordinator was a god send and became a friend, she is so professional and kind. I can hand on heart say Nettlestead Place is my favourite place and would recommend it time and time again ! The food was gorgeous too. Our guests all said how wonderful every aspect of the day was and I truly believe Nettlestead is a special place for sure!

Where to start, Nettlestead Place is simply magica
Where to start, Nettlestead Place is simply magical ! From the moment we pulled into the private drive we knew this was the place for our special day. With stunning gardens, a perfect back drop to the house which inside awaits you a truly special ceremony room that is the under-croft. The marquee reception is perfect, being nestled in the gardens just a floral footpath away from the house. But if that hasn't sold you, then Sharon and Majestic Events are really the stars of the show. Planning a wedding is stressful and the team make the whole process a dream. Nothing is too much and attention to detail really goes a long way to making the day run as smooth as possible. Leaving you to enjoy your special day entirely . Our Wedding Day was just simply the best day of our lives.

This was the place we wanted to get married at
Nettlestead Place was the first and last venue we visited, as soon as we walked into the Under Croft we knew this was the place we wanted to get married. Sharon and her team did an outstanding job to make our wedding day the best.
