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 or for outdoor ceremonies, in Gazebo for up to 150 guests. To follow the ceremony, you have the choice of hosting your wedding breakfast in either the Barn, seating up to 70, or our Event Suite seating up to 200. 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 300 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 sized 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 50 plus guests. The perfect ‘next-stop’ for family and friends to stay or to make a weekend of things!

Our amazing June 2021 Wedding
Although we had a pandemic wedding and torrential rain that didn’t stop our wedding day from being amazing!! The staff go above and beyond, they are so helpful and throughout everything the wedding team have been brilliant. 2 weeks before our day they announced the restrictions lifting so we could have more than 30 guests, within this time the team were so calming and reassuring, constantly asking if I needed help or guidance with anything. They also suggested different ideas like having our first dance outside under the gazebo which turned into one of my favourite parts of our day. The food was delicious, we had afternoon tea as our wedding breakfast and all our guests commented on how lovely it was. The atmosphere is so chilled and being by the river is beautiful. We was lucky enough to have a break in the rain just long enough to go down by the river for photos which was a amazing. Also the in house DJ was the best! He had us dancing from first dance to midnight. He took our requests, played party songs, slow songs, dance songs, he just couldn’t have been better! We also stayed at mocketts cottages and got ready there the morning of the wedding. I thought the morning would be chaotic with 5 bridesmaids, me, my mum, make up and hair and a photographer but the relaxing atmosphere and space within the cottages meant I could sit back, chilled, under a blanket with a Buck’s Fizz in hand, the perfect way to start the day. I cannot thank the ferry house inn team enough for everything they did to make our day special.

The PERFECT wedding
We got married in June 2021 and I can't thank the team at the FHI enough for all their hard work. Even with some covid restrictions still in place, the team made the day completely stress free for myself and my husband. Their customer service is top notch but the venue is so beautiful and sells itself, with lovely views of the estuary, a wonderful garden and a rustic feel barn. The food was fantastic too and the whole day ran smoothly thanks to Kerry, Ellie, Emily and everyone else involved behind the scenes❤ 100% perfect and I wouldn't hesitate to book with them if I had to do it all over again.

Our special wedding day
We would like to send our hugest thank you to all members of FHI team. From the team members who greeted us during our decor drop off the morning before the wedding up to the bar staff who said goodbye on the morning after the wedding and for everyone else involved as part of our special day...Thank you! For allowing us to get married so smoothly in the sunshine and to enjoy all that FHI has to offer (during a pandemic too) we truly do thank you and wish you all well from the bottom of our hearts. It was a fabulous day to remember. The venue was stunning in the sunshine, the barn beautifully decorated even for our small wedding party of 30 guests. The food and drinks were phenomenal and guests commented on how beautiful the included accommodation was too.

COVID Wedding - Just do it!
The team at The Ferry House could not be more accommodating to us. Even before the time of dreaded COVID time it was so comforting to find a venue that didn't feel like a "wedding machine" which just turns over wedding after wedding. Ferry House were able to make changes and amendments for our day to truly feel special and personal to us as a couple. Then comes along COVID and finding out that we couldn't get married on our chosen date was devastating, however Victoria's video updates and the team's quick responses to keep us informed were outstanding. I cannot express what a comfort it is knowing that your chosen venue are being so supportive and do everything they can to make things work for our particular day, as well as other couples and also running a business themselves too! The team are fantastic and from start to finish we really felt as though everything was being done to make our day as special as it could be. With only 13 other guests at our wedding I thought it may not feel as special as we had planned but we were so wrong! Honestly, it was because of the people at The Ferry House that we had the most amazing day (despite COVID) and I wouldn't have changed anything.

Stunning venue and very helpful staff
I was due to get married at the harty ferry house June 2020 but due to the pandemic couldn’t. The harty ferry inn were very helpful and went out their way to support us during this difficult time. When it reopened we went for a walk and was reminded at how stunning the venue is and how helpful and friendly the staff are with outstanding food. I can not wait to get married at this venue once things have calmed down with COVID, definitely recommend the venue.

Rustic 5* Wedding Venue
I couldn't recommend the Ferry House Inn highly enough! We had an early January winter wedding and this venue pulled out all the stops. Not only is this place gorgeous the food, drink, staff and accommodation are 5*! The team here provide a stress free day for a fraction of the price of some other venues we researched.

FAQ

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 neighboring 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...
