The gravel yards are surrounded by flowers and the beautiful wooden barns. There’s a Gothic style Oast House with it’s 3 Kilns and Dutch style coachhouse. There’s also a granary barn, sitting rased above the ground on special ‘staddle stones’.
Flowing around the house, the garden includes a water garden with little spring-fed streams. These feed into the two lakes, around the front lawn and Juliana’s Island. The lakes have recently been dredged of mud for the first time in 150 years, and the garden is constantly being improved.
An ancient Saxon church of St Mildred’s sits with the farm, some distance from the village in a peaceful location. It’s possible to have your marriage ceremony here even if you have no connection with the parish.

"I have a GORGEOUS wedding for you today brought to you by the super talented Debs Ivelja. It takes place in one of, if not my favourite wedding venue in the UK, Preston Court, which is as amazing as it sounds! Complete with a carousel, paper pom poms, a beautiful first look and Tiffany Grant Riley planning the whole event, this wedding is FULL of amazing details and looks stunning!"
"To everyone at Preston Court, We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all your help in the lead up to the wedding, as well as the big day itself. Matt and I had such a wonderful day and our family and friends are still talking about it. We know it would not have gone as smoothly without all your help." Thank you again Ali & Matt P.S. we think there may have been something in your water because my sister, cousin, bridesmaid and myself are all pregnant and are all due in June 🙂 "
"The ceremony took place outside in the gardens, on ‘Juliana’s Island’ situated in the lake at Preston Court, we were lucky enough to have beautiful sunshine. Our guests sat on the bank opposite."
Beautiful Preston Court Wedding... In August I had the privilege to 2nd shoot with the lovely Eliza Claire, Michelle & Peter’s beautiful wedding. Preston Court is amazing full of quirks and treasure troves such as a fairground carousel, old steam engines and amazing old organs in the huge barn.
Hopelessly In Love With...Preston Court. Preston Court is a jaw droppingly stunning venue, nestled between Canterbury and Sandwich and new to weddings, with a rich history dating back to the 17th Century.
Listed as one of the world's 10 best barn venues, according to Bridal Musings. A 17th century Kentish barn, near Canterbury, England, Preston Court is perhaps one of the prettiest and most iconic barn venues in the UK. Whimsical, beautiful and utterly unique, the traditional barn is home to some stunning fairground organs, with the choice of a vintage carousel outside to match. This epic venue can hold up to 120 for dinner, with a variety of catering options and table set-ups. The wider estate is home to a pretty stone church, and an atmospheric island garden for outdoor weddings. If you’re looking for a barn venue in England with wow factor, this is probably, The One.
I don’t think there is much about this wedding that I don’t love and I just know you guys are going to fall head over heels too... Keeping to a clean ivory colour palette there were pretty flowers, bridesmaids in the loveliest dresses and crafty touches galore.
