Our stunning locations are situated in the Kent countryside. Fall in love with our idyllic lakeside setting, or an open pasture with rolling hills, romantic woodland and city skyline in the distance.


What is the capacity of your venue and will I have exclusivity?

There are no limits. From the most intimate of weddings, to an extensive guest list, our venues know no bounds. We offer a fully exclusive experience with wonderful flexibility, allowing you to create the day of your dreams.

What packages do you offer?

There are infinite possibilities when it comes to your celebration and our flexible locations, partnered with our Wedding Collections provide you with the freedom to find your perfect combination. Every couple has their own unique ideas and our Essentials Collection includes your choice of our Lakeside or Skyline location, everything you need for your wedding Tipi or marquee, alongside our highly acclaimed in-house catering. This allows you the freedom to select the rest of your elements from our Finishing Touches Collection, or leaves a blank canvas for you to paint yourself. However, if you are overwhelmed by the daunting task of piecing together every element of your wedding, our Ultimate Collections are a wonderful solution. Our Ultimate Collection Day includes everything you need, from the moment your guests arrive for welcome drinks to your toast finale. As the sun sets, you have the option to add our Ultimate Collection Night, which provides everything you need from flowing drinks, to evening munchies. Dancing under the stars and celebrating with friends, as you while away the twilight hours. Fully inclusive collections of fabulous elements, within one perfect bundle and one perfect price.

What catering options do you have?

The sky really is the limit when it comes to one of the most important elements of your day. Perhaps your dream is a fancy fine dining experience, or maybe your heart desires a more relaxed, informal affair, with delightful interactive sharing boards and stunning grazing stations. You may ponder the possibilities of a fun filled festival vibe, with gorgeous little street food stalls for your guests to browse at will. Whatever your heart desires, our incredible in-house catering team and extraordinary chefs can bring your vision to life.

Where is your venue location and can I have my wedding ceremony there?

Our stunning locations are set among the beautiful Kent countryside in the picturesque village of Knockholt. A local celebrant offers you the opportunity to experience your own bespoke wedding ceremony in our enchanting woodland setting. Your nuptials can be formalised at a local registry office.

Is your venue available all year round?

Our beautiful wedding venues are available annually from April to October, with a few prime dates remaining for 2021 and 2022.

What makes your venue unique and what are the benefits of a Tipi or marquee wedding.

Every bride and groom is unique and as such all of our weddings are bespoke and tailor made with your vision in mind. We create your wedding specifically for you, which means that no two weddings are ever the same. Our personal approach and the complete and utter flexibility that our venue offers, guarantees that you will never feel as though you have climbed onto a wedding conveyor belt. We limit the amount of weddings we present each year and instead choose to dedicate our time, care and expertise to our couples, guaranteeing a wedding beyond your wildest dreams. Bringing the outside in, our delightful Tipi's blend perfectly among the natural beauty of the landscape. A wonderful alternative to a traditional marquee, their striking silhouette will inspire and seduce, making your wedding truly unforgettable. For a more traditional flavour, there is always the Pole or Pearl tent to call upon, or if you picture a more contemporary vibe, our stretch tents tick all the boxes. Our Tipi's and marquees offer you flexibility and creativity, without guest number restrictions and therefore no wedding is too large or too small.


Exceptional were a pleasure to work with from the get-go and couldn’t have been more accommodating and caring. They consistently went above and beyond to ensure that everything from the big decisions to the tiniest of details was perfection. The food was sublime and all our guests commented on it! We cannot recommend them enough and will be forever grateful to their entire team.

Big thanks to the whole team for making our wedding so special.

Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special. We had the best time and everything Exceptional provided was amazing. We loved the food, the drinks were flowing, while your staff were all perfect. The canapés were a particular highlight of the day!
