Stunning venue, incredible team!
Huge thank you to Helen, Kate, Bryony & the Orangery team who helped us create the most dreamy wedding day & beautiful memories to share with our loved ones. The venue is stunning! Incredible settings, it is like entering a secret garden - it has everything to make a romantic day complete - from a tumbling waterful, picturesque lake, impressive orangery building and picture-perfect views from all angles. The team were fantastic from the planning stages, right through to the big day. We are so grateful for all their help - especially during such uncertain times - they are so responsive to any questions we had and we valued their guidance navigating the whole process. Staff were highly professional, attentive and ensured we were looked after. Catering was delicious and so well presented - our guests commented how impressive and tasty it all was. Wine was topped up for our guests without delay, so there were happy faces all round! The evening hog roast was enjoyed by many. Highly recommend this venue - you won't regret it! We cannot thank the team enough. Very happy.

The day was perfect
We had our wedding at the Orangery in Maidstone and the venue is absolutely stunning. The day was perfect and the staff were very attentive, kind and answered all our questions leading up to the big day (of which there were many) without delay. The food was also fantastic and the catering team also accommodated halal food for some of our guests. Thanks to all who made it so special, with a particular mention to Bryony!

The best venue/experience you can get
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything on the 7th September. It was INCREDIBLE. You guys are amazing and everyone had a wonderful time. Thank you for all of your help, it hasn’t been the most stress free time because of Covid, but you all made it so much easier. Thank you again!

Best day ever!
We got married at our local church and took the reception to the Orangery. The day ran so smoothly it was unbelievable! We are so grateful to the Orangery for answering every single little question we had over the two years planning the wedding, as well as making it the most special day. The food is amazing- all of our guests loved it! The DJ chose anthem after anthem and the dancefloor was never empty. We were overwhelmed with how beautiful the day was and the Orangery was a huge part of it- the grounds really lend themselves to amazing photos!

Beautiful venue with a wonderful team
We were due to get married here in August 2020 but covid got in the way. We have had to postpone again for the same reason but there is nowhere else we would get married. The venue is stunning with lots of gorgeous options for the ceremony. We were fortunate enough to have our menu tasting just before the first lockdown and it was delicious! The team have also been nothing but helpful, kind, patient and understanding throughout our wedding planning, particularly throughout the various curveballs that covid has thrown at us all. I am sure behind the scenes it has been very stressful for them all, but you wouldn't know it. I would highly recommend this venue and am so excited for when the day finally comes that we can marry here!
