I have been so looking forward to sharing this amazing festival wedding venue with you all. Not only is it in Kent, our most popular area for enquiries, it also has 2016 availability. If you have just got engaged and were hoping for a wedding this year, get ready to be excited because this venue is truly stunning. It has a woodland, lake, vineyard and a 25 acre meadow. Bluebells bloom when in season and there is nothing but countryside for miles.
Ladies and Gents, allow me to introduce you to our beautiful Woodland, Lake, Vineyard and Meadow in Kent, a new wedding venue that is exclusive to Festival Brides…..
Set within a beautiful part of the Kentish countryside, in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this gorgeous outdoor festival wedding venue offers the perfect setting for your wedding. Say ‘I do’ amongst a sea of Bluebells in an ancient woodland or nestled between pretty fir trees on the edge of a stunning lake. Pitch your tipi and tents in the 25 acre meadow and allow your guests to soak up the breath taking views of the High Weald of Kent.
Located within one hundred and sixty five acres of woodland, meadows, lakes and farmland, Fern and Field offers a completely secluded location to hold your wedding blessing and reception. What makes this venue that extra bit special is it has not 1, but 3 different locations to choose from for your ceremony and 2 different locations to pitch your tipi or marquee. It also offers a plethora of amazing photo opportunities from woodland and lake settings to wild flower meadows and wheat fields.
YOUR CEREMONY OPTIONS: THE ANCIENT BLUEBELL WOODS
If you have dreamed of a romantic ceremony in the middle of the woods then this area could not be more perfect. When in season, Bluebells bloom between a diverse range of silver birch, coppiced hazel and grand old oak trees offering an awe-inspiring ceremony backdrop of nothing but nature. In between the sea of bluebells and trees you will find a natural clearing where 150 of your guests can fit comfortably and soak up the sounds of the woodland.
CLEARING BY THE LAKE
Through a sweeping field of pasture, you and your guests will follow a natural path which will lead into gorgeous woodland. From here you will walk beneath the trees along the bank of a beautiful spring fed lake where you will find a natural clearing, right on the banks of the lake. Up to 150 of your guests can sit comfortably in the amphitheatre style clearing whilst enjoying the peaceful sounds of the woodland and lake.
What we love the most about this ceremony option is it offers both a woodland and lake setting for your ceremony. Something that is very rare to find in this part of the UK.
This unique ceremony and marquee site sits at the top of a stunning tree lined vineyard and offers a backdrop of rows upon rows of luscious grape vines. As Rolvenden Vineyard is a boutique vineyard, it offers a laid back feel that rivals that of a micro Bordeaux but nestled in the Garden of England! Within the woodland situated on the edge of the vineyard, under grand oak trees, is the perfect spot for your ceremony area. There is also space to pitch a marquee, tipi or canvas pole tent next to an old beech tree in a large clearing between the rows of grape vines.
If you are looking for a more sophisticated, modern style outdoor wedding venue then this location is perfect.
THE TWENTY FIVE ACRE MEADOW
Sweeping up from the lake and woodland ceremony areas, surrounded by fields and ancient bluebell woods, you will find The Twenty Five Acre Field. This large meadow of pasture boasts breath taking panoramic views over the High Weald’s quintessentially English landscape. There is plenty of space to pitch an alternative marquee or tipi and there is room for your guests to camp if they wish.
Access to the venue is excellent with good links to the A20, A21, M20 and M25. Headcorn train station is 10 miles away and has direct links to London as does Ashford International Station which is 17 miles away. The quaint Market town of Tenterden is only 10 minutes away and is home to some fantastic accommodation and food options. It also has a beautiful licensed Town Hall. Alternatively, the Spa town of Tunbridge Wells is only a 30 minute drive away and comes with a plethora of hotels, restaurants and a very grand Victorian registry office.
