Information For The Oak Grove

The Oak Grove is a unique and secluded woodland wedding venue, containing a spectacular stretch tent, woodland kitchen and 'living' licensed ceremony area, situated in Kent.

Located in North Kent and nestled between two small villages, this oak glade is a magnificent woodland wedding venue. We can offer an exquisite ‘living’ licensed ceremony area to complete your day.

The wood itself sits beside tranquil meadows and is set within five acres of the North Kent countryside. Our treasured copse is not only surrounded by farmland on three sides but also lies within the ancient Saxon Shore Way on the banks of the River Medway.

The stunning stretch tents are vaulted within a ring of huge oaks. The main tent is larger than a triple hat Tipi - but covers a single space. The two smaller tents are seamlessly joined to the main one and are ideal for catering, chilling out, bar and dancing.

We can accommodate up to 120 guests (160 in evening) and while the site is completely rural, we have provided viable disabled access. There is also ample parking, including overnight.

Our stunning antique bar can be open to serve drinks throughout the day and is included. The bar acts as a focal point for your guests and offers two 48 bottle fridges and a large chiller plus storage. You are able to provide post ceremony drinks and wine with the meal - corkage free!

The Kitchen is available for your caterers to use, this 3m x 6m woodland kitchen has hot and cold running water, double sink, food prep area, power and heating. You can also choose to use it as an additional outside bar or for post ceremony drinks.

Five luxury toilets are converted from vintage horseboxes. Fully stocked with all the essentials, there are two female, two male and one disabled access with baby change facilities. These toilets are water flushing (not chemical) and are cleaned for you throughout the day.
