Is the farm licensed for ceremonies?
Yes, we have three stunning yet different reception barns and all are licensed for civil ceremonies. The Oak Barn is a magnificent high vaulted oak framed barn and The Byre is classically elegant with amazing views down the valley and across the wildlife pond and the Pole Barn is our large open fronted barn and offers a more rustic style.
Can I get married in Benenden's church?
It is a short walk to the beautiful St. George's Church in Benenden. We would be delighted to introduce you to the Rector to discuss your marriage.
Is the venue exclusively ours for our wedding?
Yes, The Oak Barn, Frame Farm is a series of stunning Grade II listed buildings that have undergone an extensive restoration that discreetly incorporates the benefits of a contemporary wedding venue into the historic charm of Kentish farm buildings. You and your guests will enjoy exclusive use of the farm for a day or weekend including all our stunning reception barns - The Oak Barn, The Byre, and the Pole Barn and the luxurious Weaver's Cottages as well as the courtyard, terraces and pond.
How many of my friends and family can I host?
We can comfortably host 135 guests for your Wedding Breakfast and about 200 for your evening reception.
Do you charge corkage?
We don't believe in corkage so no, we don't charge it and neither do any of our approved caterers.
A stunning venue for our December Winter Wedding. Deana and Tim were brilliant. The natural beauty of the barn meant there was little decoration needed and having The Byre, as well as The Oak Barn, allowed rooms to be turned around at no inconvenience. The cottages are of a high standard and were brilliant to retreat to. We had a fantastic wedding day, are forever grateful for all of their help and we highly recommend for future brides & grooms!
Our Beautiful Barn Wedding - we loved having our wedding here. Deana and Tim helped make it such a special occasion. We received many compliments, many were amazed by how the venue could retain charm and authenticity while being modernised to such a high standard. You will not be disappointed if you choose to get married here. We are living on the wonderful memories, and we wish we could do it all over again. Thank you, we had the best day ever.
From the bottom or our hearts, thank you so much! We cannot put into words how thankful we are to have gotten married at your beautiful Oak Barn. From start to finish, working with you both was an absolute pleasure and nothing was ever too much or too complicated to organise. The barn is a really special venue, from the small details right up to the overall design, everything has been meticulously thought about, which makes the memory even more special. You both made our day so memorable and were on hand throughout the whole process (right up until the last guest was in the taxi!) to help with queries and questions. Not only the Barn, but also the cottages were a great base for our guests and we had so many compliments about the comfort of each room. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much. We loved every part of it.
Would highly recommend. For anyone looking to book an event or wedding venue at the moment, I would highly recommend the Oak Barn, Frame Farm. Due to restrictions, we made the difficult decision to postpone our wedding. Deana and Tim, who run the Oak Barn, have been absolutely amazing and supportive throughout. From the outset, they were extremely accommodating and have shown so much compassion, understanding and kindness. We feel very fortunate to have selected this venue, not only for its beauty, but because of the safe hands we're in with such a down to earth couple. They clearly want our big day to be the best it can be and have made this difficult decision, a seamless process. As a result, we are now looking forward to getting married in 2021 at this spectacular venue, even more than before.
I can't praise the Oak Barn at Frame Farm highly enough. My partner and I were due to be Married there in 2020. We’ve had to change our plans and dates multiple times due to lockdowns and travel restrictions. Repeatedly postponing a Wedding has been frustrating, but it's been made so much easier by Deana, Tim and Polly, whose communication, efficiency, kindness, patience and support have been tireless. We haven't had our Wedding yet, but wanted to leave a review to say how brilliant the team have been and how wonderful the venue is. For the past year, we’ve been living down the road from the Oak Barn, and you can't help but gawp at this beautifully renovated, lovingly cared-for farm whenever you pass by. Every Season compliments the farm in its own way - the lambs in the Spring, the sunsets in the Summer (right over one of their fields), the colours in the Autumn, and the underfloor heating, wood-burner and fairy-lights wound around the old, oak-beams make it a magical Winter venue. It's a 5min walk to one of the best pubs in the area (The Bull - live music and pies), it's surrounded by footpaths through ancient woodland and 'areas of outstanding natural beauty', and Weavers Cottages and the Venue buildings and kitted out with everything you'd need to accommodate the perfect celebration or get-away. We’re very grateful to the Oak Barn team, and are so looking forward to celebrating our Wedding with them later this year.
