Set in the heart of the garden of England, in Kent's county town, Maidstone, the Orangery represents and preserves the true and natural beauty of Kent itself. From the moment you step into the grounds the sheer magic will encapsulate your dreams for that perfect day. It truly is a photographer's paradise.
Nestled within nine acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, with a tranquil lake and tumbling waterfall, it is an exclusive-use venue of the highest standard.
At the Orangery, there are two choices for a civil ceremony. The magnificent Garden Room is a stunning location for a civil ceremony. Five double doors span the front facade providing guests with a perfect view of the beautiful Mill Barn Garden and more importantly of the wedding party as they make their momentous entrance across the bridge. The stunning roof lantern ensures that the room is always light and adds to the effect of the gardens reaching into the covered space. An inside and outside sound system enables couples to share their carefully chosen music with their guests.
In addition to being a beautiful setting for the ceremony, the Garden Room can also be used for reception drinks for guests who arrive to the Orangery following a ceremony in church, as a stylish backdrop for indoor photographs or for larger weddings, a location for dancing and music.
During British Summertime, weather permitting, couples can also have the option of having their ceremony in the beautiful Gazebo, which is nestled within the immaculately landscaped grounds. Both the Garden Room and the Gazebo provide an unforgettable setting for couples to exchange those all important vows.
