Wedding Couples

“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.” ...continue reading

“We were lucky enough to get married at The Oak Barn, Frame Farm in October 2020 and would highly recommend this amazing venue to anyone planning a wedding or other special event.

The Oak Barn and the on-site cottages have been beautifully renovated and restored to the highest standards, combining luxury and comfort. The owners Tim & Deana were a pleasure to deal with from the very beginning, and although we unfortunately had to postpone our original April wedding plans due to the pandemic, they made such a positive difference to our wedding planning experience through these difficult times. They are understanding, flexible and so helpful, always responding quickly and positively to any queries and working with us to plan our special day. We decided to go ahead with our ‘mini-wedding’ this year and enjoyed a small, intimate celebration with our close family – the venue is perfectly suited to smaller scale events as well as larger weddings and we’ll be returning next year for the big party and wedding reception with all of our original guests – we cannot wait” ...continue reading

“Awesome venue and amazing owners. Due to the constantly changing regulations on weddings due to Covid-19, we unfortunately didn’t yet have the chance to celebrate our wedding at The Oak Barn. We can though share how an amazing experience we have had so far despite the postponement of our wedding. Tim and Deana have been truly amazing, flexible and caring for us. Always putting our wishes and need first. All meetings have been a pleasure and always led to agreement on what is the best for us. We have had constant support in each step of the organisation and also to rearrange all for next year. We have full confidence that we will have a blast when we finally can celebrate our wedding there. Thanks so much to both Tim and Deana for their amazing service and dedication. The venue is absolutely beautiful! Can’t wait to celebrate next year.” ...continue reading

“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.” ...continue reading

“Stunning venue which ticked all the boxes for our December Winter Wedding. Deana and Tim were brilliant from start to finish. The natural beauty of the barn meant there was little additional decoration needed and having the use of The Byre as well as The Oak Barn allowed for rooms to be turned around at no inconvenience. The self-catering cottages are of a high standard and were brilliant for our older guests to retreat to later in the night. We had a fantastic wedding day at the Oak Barn, are forever grateful for all of their help to make this possible and we highly recommend for future brides & grooms!” ...continue reading

“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.” ...continue reading

“The Oak Barn is just the cherry on top. We got married here in September 2019 and honestly had the best experience. Incredible venue, wonderful owners and truly amazing recommendations on suppliers. Beautiful grounds, stunning accommodation and The Oak Barn is just the cherry on top. Could not more highly recommend this for your special day.”

“We had an August wedding here and couldn't recommend it more. This venue was everything we hoped for and the day was perfect. Where to start... the Oak Barn itself is beautiful. If you have a barn in mind this will be how it looks. Plus, it's been upgraded with smart lighting and a great sound system. It has a bar space inside you can use, plus lots of nice touches - like tables made from a tree on site. We also made use of the Byre for the ceremony itself. Lovely open views of the fields (we wanted the sheep to be visible which they kindly helped facilitate) and it opens onto a terrace for refreshments afterwards. Using this made it super easy for us as the Barn could already be set up for us to use for the breakfast. No stress setting it up between ceremony and food. We also loved the cottages on site and used them before and after the day. They've been furnished to a great standard and the convenience of being on site both nights cannot be overstated. The outside spaces are perfect for pictures, and combined with the nice weather meant everyone had a wonderful time mingling. Finally, Tim and Deana were the best hosts, giving us helpful suggestions and supporting us throughout the stressful planning. Plus, their dog is the best!! All in all this venue literally ticked every box for us. And it was the second one we looked at! Don't hesitate to use it if you like what you see.” ...continue reading

“We had our wedding at Frame Farm in July this year. The venue has been converted with amazing attention to detail and the overall setting is idyllic. Both the inside and outdoor areas provided such great spaces for all aspects our day. The Byre gave us an intimate feel to the ceremony and accommodated our 100+ guests comfortably. The terrace was great for post ceremony drinks and was a secondary space for guests after our meal in the main barn. The courtyard enabled our guests to choose to relax outside or spend time on the dance floor. Tim and Deana were very helpful and attentive through our whole planning process and supported all our suppliers on the day. The accommodation for guests on site is stunning and helped make the whole weekend just perfect. I would have no hesitation recommending the venue and really encourage couples to opt to have the farm for the whole weekend, it made the day so less stressful and rushed.” ...continue reading

“Our Beautiful Barn Wedding - we absolutely loved having our wedding at The Oak Barn, Frame Farm in early June 2019. Deana and Tim helped make our wedding such a special occasion, they were incredibly accommodating with all of our enquires, super friendly and easy to contact throughout our wedding planning process. We have received so many compliments from friends and family in relation to the Barn, many of whom were so incredibly amazed by how such a characterful venue could retain such charm and authenticity while having been modernised to such an incredibly high standard. We first visited Frame Farm in March 2018, before the Oak Barn had really began its main construction, and we reserved our wedding date based on paper floor plans and computer generated images. When we returned for the launch in January 2019 we could not have been more overwhelmed by the Barn's unbelievable transformation - we knew we had made the best decision choosing The Oak Barn for our wedding reception. You will not be disappointed if you choose to get married here. The Byre and Weavers Cottages add such fantastic opportunity to your event, you can arrange the day however you like. We are living on all the wonderful memories, we wish we could do it all over again and cannot wait to visit Deana and Tim again soon at Frame Farm. Thank you for everything, we had the best day ever and couldn't have asked for anymore.” ...continue reading

“We had our wedding at Frame Farm, on the 26/05/19. The location is incredibly idyllic, set in the beautiful Kent countryside, all of our guests were blown away with how amazing the venue was. Tim and Deana allowed us to visit the venue with our friends, family, caterers, photographer etc. on numerous occasions, which made the preparation so much easier and they were on hand to assist or answer any questions when needed, over the entire period. We would recommend this venue to anyone, it's a perfect setting for such a special day and run by a lovely couple.” ...continue reading

“We had our wedding here in April and Deana and Tim could not have been more helpful. We had a last minute cancellation issue with one of our providers and they bent over backwards to help us. Our day was wonderful and went so smoothly. Lovely venue and lovely people.”

“We just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to you for hosting our big day on Saturday. The venue looked incredible and so many of our guests commented on how gorgeous the barn was. It really helped us to achieve the cosy, boho chic vibe that we wanted. We barely had to decorate as the architecture of the barn itself is so beautiful that it created the perfect ambience. The space is very flexible as well, enabling us to get the intimate atmosphere we really wanted for our wedding ceremony. Having two spaces in The Byre and the main barn was absolutely perfect. From the outset we wanted somewhere with more than one space so that we could have a live band and not have to worry about being disturbed by sound checks, and your set-up was ideal for our needs. Even though the weather was fairly grey and dull, the countryside views from The Byre were gorgeous and we loved being able to get some photographs on the pontoon by the pond. We also loved our stay in the bridal cottage. It might sound silly but all the lovely little finishing touches like soft towels, nice shampoo and conditioner in the showers, a really comfy bed and well equipped kitchen made it feel like a luxury experience. We really loved being able to stay on site with our closest friends and family, and the fact it’s a secure gated location was perfect for our daughter to toddle around and go and see the field of sheep whenever she wanted! Our best man is already talking about coming back to stay there with his family. Thank you so much to both of you as well for being so wonderful to work with. From the outset you’ve been incredibly efficient and informative, super accommodating and generally lovely and friendly - we didn’t have this experience with some of the venues we looked at before choosing The Oak Barn, it really makes a difference! Thanks also for being on hand during the day to deal with any little things that cropped up. No event will ever run 100% smoothly and it’s often how these little niggles are dealt with that make or break the day, and you certainly ensured our day was made. You really have something special in The Oak Barn and we’re so pleased that you’re already getting lots of bookings from other brides and grooms. Being early to the party we really feel like we’ve had an exclusive invite to the next big deal in Kent wedding venues and we’re certainly going to do our bit to create a buzz on your behalf. Best of luck with everything - our only sadness about the whole thing is that it’s now over! But we can’t wait to see our wedding photos and share them with you.” ...continue reading

“The venue is absolutely stunning, we looked at many barns in the area and this is a totally unique venue for any season. It’s one of the only barns in the area that can host a winter wedding....there is a beautiful log burner and heated flooring. It is beautiful when empty, so looked magical when filled with love ones. Deana and Tim were a pleasure to work with and were completely invested in making our wedding exactly what we wanted.” ...continue reading

“What a wedding venue! We were lucky enough to be the first wedding at The Oak Barn in February 2019 and honestly cannot recommend it enough. The venue is absolutely stunning, we looked at many barns in the area and The Oak Barn is totally unique venue for any season. It’s one of the only barns in the area to be able to host a winter wedding...there is a beautiful log burner and heated flooring. It is so beautiful even when empty, so looked magical when filled with love ones and simple decor. The lighting in the barn is really special and as it got dark it became even more romantic. The barn was the perfect size for us to have real atmosphere at our wedding...the dance floor was never empty. The bridal cottage and other cottages on site are beautifully furnished and it was so lovely to get ready on site with our friends and family. The Byre (smaller separate barn) allowed us to host our drinks reception against a stunning backdrop of the valley. The venue speaks for itself in photographs but the owners Tim & Deana have made an incredible effort to make this a really special (and high spec) venue and have absolutely nailed it. They were a pleasure to work with when planning our wedding and were completely invested in making our wedding exactly what we wanted. They worked brilliantly with our suppliers and gave us lots of local recommendations. It was so lovely to have them be part of our day and I truly wish them every success for the future. I will look forward to looking at pictures of many more weddings at The Oak Barn in the future and have no doubt it will become one of the most sought after venues in the area.” ...continue reading
