Full Description
We offer bespoke and package weddings, tailored to each couple, so you can have your perfect day, exactly the way you want it. Our dedicated Events Team will take a personal approach to your day and will be on hand to ensure the big day runs smoothly. Our barn wedding venue is licensed to hold civil ceremonies in both the Oak Barn for 150+ guests or for outdoor ceremonies, in Gazebo for up to 200 guests. To follow the ceremony, you have the choice of hosting your wedding breakfast in either the Oak Barn, seating up to 70, or our Event Suite seating up to 180. For the main event (or as we see it, the food!) we offer varied menus to suit all. As members of Produced in Kent, we are proud of the quality of our ingredients; the Lamb and Beef are from our own family farms, the Game is from our shoot and we now grow all our own fresh produce onsite in our kitchen garden. The Ferry House restaurant was awarded Kent Dining Pub of the Year in 2014 and in 2018. Our Evening Reception options include Barn only receptions for up to 100 guests, Barn and dance floor options which include an additional private wedding bar for up to 150 guests or our entire Event Suite is available to use all day to host the wedding breakfast with a dancing area screened off during your meal which is then revealed in the evening. This option also includes the private wedding bar from after the ceremony, and is suitable for up to 250 guests. To end the day in style and comfort, we have 11 4* B&B rooms on site for you and your guests; including our Bridal Suite with a super king-size sleigh bed, spa bath, lounge area and views across the wedding patios, gardens and estuary. Wake up to an award winning local breakfast and reminisce on the day before. Just off-site, we also have Mocketts Farm Cottages, a complex of five 4* self-catered cottages available to book for 47+ guests. The perfect ‘next-stop’ for family and friends to stay or to make a weekend of things!

Stunning Wedding Venue
I honestly can't thank the Ferry House more for making our wedding the most beautiful day of our lives! It was the perfect setting, with stunning views of the water, a barn decorated with hops and fairy lights, and the event suite was the perfect blank slate to inject our personality into. The catering they provided was simply delicious, and all 100 guest loved the food even the fussy ones! The accomodation was spotless and beautifully presented, with great facilities. What really set the Ferry House apart was its staff, they went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect. Our planner Sam was exceptional! She helped us with the pre-wedding planning and made it a lot less stressful, and on the day was absolute perfection helping to keep it stress free so we could have the best time!
Response from the venue

We wouldn't have changed a single thing.
Just wanted to say a big thank you again to all that helped make our wedding the best day ever! We wouldn't have changed a single thing. And a special thanks again to Sam who went above and beyond and replied to every silly email I sent. The day was the best we could have hoped for! Thank you so so much!!

The best decision we ever made
The venue and staff are above and beyond in every aspect. The food was incredible, from canapes and the wedding breakfast to catering for close friends and family at the nearby cottages. We felt supported throughout the entire process – including a covid postponement -- and absolutely every member of staff was friendly and happy to help. The venue speaks for itself – beautiful setting, views, and atmosphere but the people make it an absolute must for a low-stress magical day.
Response from the venue
Thankyou Natalie and Christine for such a lovely review. We are so happy to hear you had such a magical day, and we are glad we were able to contribute to it being special for you both! Kind regards, all of us at The Ferry House.

Water front views felt a little bit like home!
The day went perfectly, I feel like all staff did what they needed to do but I barely saw anyone about! It was like we were able to be alone and enjoy our day with our friends and family but knew everything was being taken care of. Everything about the Ferry House is absolutely beautiful! We fell in love with both the indoor and outdoor options for where our ceremony could take place. This was something we struggled to find! The decor of the barn is so beautiful and we love the Dried hops! I also grew up by the seaside so to have water front views felt a little bit like home!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

So many beautiful weddings, I am not sure I could pick just one!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Relax and try to enjoy the planning!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Every wedding has so many personal touches I'm not sure I could choose just one!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, Beautiful, Homely, Unique, Romantic

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Oooo this is a hard one! We have quite a few different areas for photos. Personally I have two favorite 'must-have' photo spots and that is by the water and in our secret orchard. Photos by the water are always beautiful and always different depending on weather, timing & tide. We had the most amazing shot of a couple by the estuary between the sunset and a rainbow. LOVE! The Secret Orchard is also a must! We leave the grass and flowers wild and there are always some amazing shots in there.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Did we ever say that Jude Law stayed here not long ago whilst filming?!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Oooo has to be the mini burgers with beef from our family farm.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

It has to be our Signature wedding cake! Chocolate brownie wrapped in malted white chocolate cheesecake...

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Has to be our food ethos. We have an extensive kitchen garden where we grow 60% of the fresh produce on our wedding menu. Our beef is all reared on the neighbouring nature reserve and game is all shot on the Harty Estate. We even serve gin that is made from the grain from our farm!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The part of the business we are the proudest of has to be our team! We genuinely are a Ferry House family and without everyone in every department being passionate about the part they play, we would not be able to pull off the amazing weddings that we do. Plus we have a great sense of humour...
