Set within a beautiful part of the North Kent countryside, in an area surrounded by woodland, rivers and meadows, is The Oak Grove – a gorgeous woodland wedding venue that offers an intimate and unique setting for your wedding. Say ‘I do’ under a large living willow whilst your guests soak up the relaxed atmosphere of the countryside. Party in the stretch tent nestled within a woodland glade and enjoy the countryside views that extend for miles and miles.

What makes this venue that extra bit special is it includes pretty much all the amenities you need for an outdoor wedding such as power, toilets, furniture and shelter, saving you both money and time.

The Oak Grove is set within 5 acres of the north Kent countryside located at Twinney Wharf, a farm wharf dating back centuries. Nestled on the land side of the sea wall, between sheep fields and an apple orchard, is a 4 acre wooded glen which is the home of the wedding venue. Here you will find a beautiful living willow hand-fasting and blessing area, a large stretch tent in a pretty glade and plenty of space for you and your guests to use as you please. The venue also boasts 22 magnificent Oak trees that have been sympathetically lit and provide a spectacular backdrop to the venue.

The Living Willow Licensed Ceremony Area

Across a small stream, and on top of a low grassy mound, you will find the living willow licensed ceremony area. This enchanting leafy structure is handmade using living willow which has been intertwined with metal to make a striking focal point for your ceremony. At night the space is transformed by twinkling fairy lights into a beautiful romantic haven for you and your guests to escape to.

The ceremony area can seat up to 120 people on rustic wooded benches or comfortable wooden chairs.

The Stretch Tent

This wonderful (and huge!) sculptural stretch tent is included in the hire fee and sits under the canopy of oak trees which means it remains shaded and cool in the height of summer and protected from anything an English summer can throw at it. It can comfortably seat 120 people and comes fully equipped with power, furniture, lighting and a solid wood floor throughout.

Access to the venue is excellent with good links to the A249, M2, M20 and M25. Rainham train station, which has direct links to London, is 3 miles away and Ebbsfleet International Station is 20 miles away. There is a great selection of hotels and B&B’s local to the venue and a local coach company who can run a shuttle service for your guests.



Parking is available for during the day and overnight and the venue is also proud to have excellent disabled access.
