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

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.

Have your wedding at the Ferry House Inn, you won't be disappointed!
My husband and I got married 10 days ago at FHI. We were the victims of a covid wedding, which eventually (by our own choice) was pushed back by 2 years. Was it worth the wait? Absolutely. They stuck with us throughout the pandemic, unlike other wedding venues. The couples are at the heart of this business - exactly how it should be. Thank you to all involved in our wedding. Sam (wedding co-ord) - you were amazing! We had various zoom meetings in the build up to our wedding, constantly being kept in the loop, with lots of options available. A great selling point for this venue is they are dog friendly - ours walked down the aisle and was our ring bearer. You won't find that in most venues, so if your furbaby is important to you, you cannot go wrong with this venue. You have two options - get married outside in the gazebo, or inside in the barn. We opted for the first, with the barn as a back up if required. What we liked about this venue is we would have been happy with either, so if it rained and we ended up getting married in the barn, we would still be happy. Thankfully the weather was on our side and it was sunny the entire day, so we stuck outside! The FHI catered for a menu we wanted which wasn't specifically on the choices offered; they also went out of their way and catered for an individual we had that had so many dietary requirements they couldn't have any of our options. To put it in perspective - this person said she usually has to bring her own food to weddings, so she was over the moon the catering team could accommodate. My husband and I don't drink alcohol, so the venue offered us a non alcoholic drink (which was amazing, you should put this on your regular menu) - peach coolie with something, and was perfect! The day itself couldn't have gone better. Getting ready in the morning - maybe a suggestion would be to get ready at Mocketts farm down the road, its a little bigger than the room on offer at the venue. They have a number of beautiful cottages (the FHI website will direct you to them), we booked them from the night before and had a BBQ with friends and family. A really nice touch before the big day. On the day, Sam kept us to time, and also kept checking with us we were happy with everything, including the layout before allowing guests to enter the main events room. The wedding was just how we imagined it. Absolutely perfect. Our meals were served in the events suite. The food was good, and all food was served within minutes of the top table getting theirs. The chocolate brownie was the best! There is accommodation available to purchase at the venue (11 rooms in total), which are held exclusively for you I think up to 3 months before the wedding. All the rooms are beautiful - couples, go for room 6 over the honeymoon suite - there is an amazing bath in there!!! Breakfast the next morning was also included. To sum it up, we wouldn't change our wedding day for anything and we have no regrets whatsoever. We are so grateful for such a wonderful day, thank you so much!!!

The most perfect Wedding Day we could ask for!
My partner and I got married at The Ferry House Inn on Saturday 4th June and it was honestly the most amazing day we could have asked for! We had a small hiccup in the morning that we really wanted to get married outside, but due to the winds on the day, this just wasn't going to be possible. Our Wedding Coordinator Sam put us at ease about having to change our plans and ensured that our day was just perfect. Sam was so helpful throughout the whole of our wedding planning process and on our big day - we really couldn't have done it without her, or any of the staff at The Ferry House. The food was amazing, and the staff were so polite and quick in service. Our day went just perfectly, all of our guests couldn't stop commenting on how lovely the venue you and how good the day went. We were so lucky to be able to get married at The Ferry House Inn and we would go back and do it all again if we could!
Response from the venue
Thankyou Matt and Ellen for such a lovely review! We are so happy to hear that you both had such an amazing day despite the windy weather!

The perfect day and more
A massive thank you to everyone at the Ferry house. The experience you gave us for our wedding was of the highest standard. We had our wedding here on 05/11/21. I had been in constant contact throughout the year and they were just so accommodating. The venue is stunning and has such a romantic feel to it. Our guests were in love with everything and the staff were just so lovely. We are over the moon to have picked such a perfect venue which made our day a big success. 🥂👰🤵‍♂️

The perfect venue ❤️
We had the most incredible day at the Ferry House. From the moment we viewed the venue all if the staff were so helpful and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble and they were so helpful and organised that it took so much of the stress of planning a wedding away. The venue is stunning, the food was incredible and the views are beautiful. We had the best day and all of our guests commented on how great the venue and staff were. I couldn't recommend this place anymore. We also rented all of the mocketts cottages for a few nights which really made the whole event even more special to have so many people stay with us the night before
Response from the venue

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...
