Nicki & Scotts Wedding Experience

How did you first hear of Boxley House grounds as a venue for your wedding?
My husband is in a band and had played on the grounds previously for another Wedding a few years before.

What made you decide it was the option for you?
The grounds are stunning and directly adjacent to the church we were getting married in. The setting is beautiful and very private, so no worry with people walking past and it felt safe for the kids to run around.

What was the biggest appeal about this venue?
We wanted a venue then allowed us to have a late finish, we like a party so being able to have live music until 1am and a drinks license until 2am was great! After not being able to gather with friends and family for almost two years, the late finish and mild summer evening meant the wedding felt like it when on for hours which is what we wanted! The space also is huge! It’s a blank canvas and gives you the opportunity to be as creative as you like while being surrounded by beautiful farmers fields.! We had 150 guests and the space catered perfectly! There’s also onsite parking which is fab and meant our guests could leave their cars and come back the next morning. Having the church in the back drop while we ate was breathtaking. We knew we wanted an outdoor wedding and this was the perfect fit. It also meant our guests didn’t have to travel far from the church to the reception!

How would you describe the venue to a friend?
If you’re looking for the perfect outdoor events venue in the heart of Maidstone then this is it! It’s private, offers a late finish compared to many venues in the area and is the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding/event. We’ve already recommended the space to friends who are getting married at the site next August!

How was your experience booking this venue?
Fab! Daniel and Ashleigh at ESO were lovely and very helpful along the way. We had to postpone our wedding twice due to Covid-19 and they couldn’t have been more accommodating in helping us find a new date. They also allowed us to visit the venue numerous times in the lead up to the wedding so we could plan the set up. They were a dream to work with.
