Much-loved Kent wedding venue, The Ferry House, has announced plans to build a beautiful new wedding barn in time for spring 2026 weddings. Set beside the stunning Swale estuary between the wild meadows and wetlands of the Isle of Sheppey, the existing Oak Barn, Oak Gazebo and Event Suite have hosted countless celebrations.

The new plans mark the latest in a series of enhancements to the venue over the last decade, including landscaped wedding gardens, a waterside Gazebo, The Coach House luxury accommodation and, most recently, the Garden Lodge – a second ‘readying room’. The next, exciting chapter is to replace the current Event Suite with a stunning new Wedding Barn.

This wedding is an absolute beauty!!! Faye & Dean styled their day with a fantasy book theme (I’d be on the Rain Wilds table, which I love!) The gorgeous pair got wed at The Ferry House, one of our favourite Kent wedding venues. Danny Jack was their photographer. The images are out of this world, and Danny gets a glowing review from Faye & Dean below!

Wedding photographer review

English Wedding member The Ferry House is delighted to reveal a new, second ‘readying room’; The Garden Lodge, just one of a long list of exciting developments at their waterside barn wedding venue in Kent.

In a secluded spot of their 1.5 acre Kitchen Garden, it’s the ideal space – far enough from the venue that you have privacy to help settle any big day nerves, but close enough so that you still feel part of the action. Enjoy brunch platters of freshly baked pastries, a selection of homemade rolls, sweet fruit picked from your garden surrounds and a fruit juice or few glasses of fizz on the terrace – perfect for that bit of calm and fresh air before you say ‘I do’.
