The Orangery is the ultimate setting for your special day. Set in the heart of the garden of England, in Kent’s county town, Maidstone, the Orangery represents the true and natural beauty of Kent itself

Nestled within nine acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, with a tranquil lake and
tumbling waterfall, it is an exclusive-use venue
with endless photographic opportunities. Our commitment to ensuring the smooth running of your day will be evident from the start and we will exceed your expectations with our meticulous attention to detail. You nurture the dream, we compose the reality.

At the Orangery you have three stunning choices for your wedding ceremony. During British Summer time, weather permitting you have the option of having your ceremony in the elegant Gazebo or the beautiful Lapa. In addition, the
magnificent Garden Room offers an all year round option.

The Orangery (situated within the Turkey
Mill estate) is located 1.5 miles from Junction 7 of the M20 and is a 10 minute walk from the centre of Maidstone via the Len Valley footpath. Vehicular access into the estate is from the A20.

We were due to get married here in August 2020 but covid got in the way. We have had to postpone again for the same reason but there is nowhere else we would get married. The venue is stunning with lots of gorgeous options for the ceremony. We were fortunate enough to have our menu tasting just before the first lockdown and it was delicious! The team have also been nothing but helpful, kind, patient and understanding throughout our wedding planning, particularly throughout the various curveballs that covid has thrown at us all. I am sure behind the scenes it has been very stressful for them all, but you wouldn't know it. I would highly recommend this venue and am so excited for when the day finally comes that we can marry here!
Huge thank you to Helen, Kate, Bryony & the Orangery team who helped us create the most dreamy wedding day & beautiful memories to share with our loved ones.
The venue is stunning! Incredible settings, it is like entering a secret garden - it has everything to make a romantic day complete - from a tumbling waterful, picturesque lake, impressive orangery building and picture-perfect views from all angles. The team were fantastic from the planning stages, right through to the big day. We are so grateful for all their help - especially during such uncertain times - they are so responsive to any questions we had and we valued their guidance navigating the whole process. Staff were highly professional, attentive and ensured we were looked after. Catering was delicious and so well presented - our guests commented how impressive and tasty it all was. Wine was topped up for our guests without delay, so there were happy faces all round! The evening hog roast was enjoyed by many. Highly recommend this venue - you won't regret it! We cannot thank the team enough. Very happy.
To Toni, Bryony, Don and All The Team, Your expertise, kindness and attention to detail has been invaluable in making this special day a complete success. Toni - When I handed everything to you last Thursday I was confident you would organise everything and you exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much. We received so many compliments on the quality of the wedding breakfast and the table service. Everything was wonderful and we appreciate all the hard work behind the scene too. Thank you from us all, best wishes Angela and Steve (Brides Parents)

To Toni and Team, Andrew and I would just like to say a massive thank you to you all for making our day very special and stress-free! Everyone remarked on how great the food was (I loved it!) and how smoothly everything ran. We cant thank you enough. With heartfelt thanks Amanda and Andrew
Dear Bryony, Liz and all the Orangery team, Thank you for organising our wedding. You gave us the most magical day and we are still in awe of how perfectly the day went. As you know our day was incredibly complicated there were so many aspects to think about yet you were able to accommodate all our requirements so that we could have the wedding of our dreams. We had some particular and perhaps unusual visions and requests, some of which we thought was asking too much but you were able to bring them all to life. We would like to acknowledge Liz and all the catering team for not only allowing our food requests but delivering them to such a high standard, both in the day and evening. Our friends and family have been full of praise at how wonderful all the Orangery team were and how beautiful the grounds are. We fell in love with the Orangery the moment we saw it and look forward to visiting again. Please also pass on our thanks to Anne, she was amazing in the lead up to the day. Thank you!
Hi Toni, I want to say a massive thank you for all of your hard work for our wedding on the 9th August. You were amazing. With you organising everything, we were never worried about how the day would turn out. You always know the answers that we needed and you were so completely in control of everything that gave us complete faith in your ability to sort any problem or question that we had! On the day, you delivered spectacularly and I do not believe that our day could have been better. Every single one of our guests has commented to us about how stunning The Orangery is as a wedding venue and I would also like to pass on thanks to Liz, Bryony and Don for all of their work as well. Thank you for everything.
Toni, We just wanted to send a massive thank you to the team at the orangery especially you, for looking after us so well on one of the biggest days of our lives. The team were amazing and made the day so special for us. Every little detail was looked after and no stress or worry crossed our minds at any part of the day!! You guys took care of everything and it made such a huge difference to the running of the day. Even if we delayed everything a little with the brides late arrival. You are kind, patient and extremely calming when it is needed the most! You was always there no matter how big or small the matter in hand was! You didn’t only look after us but all our guests, especially my nan! What you did for her yesterday will stay with me forever! So with all this said and done we are off to pack for our honeymoon! :) huge thank you again . We are on cloud 9 today and can’t see us coming down anytime soon!
To Toni and the Orangery Team, Thank you so much for all your help with planning our wedding - we really had the most fantastic day and our guests did too. The whole day ran so smoothly and everything was just perfect. We really couldn't have done it without you so thank you again for all your hard work
I just wanted to send a quick email to thank everyone who was involved with our wedding on Sunday 23rd June 2019! I wanted to send over a special thanks to Bryony who really made the whole day run smoothly and even when I had very stressed bridesmaids, late parents of the groom and when the music wouldn't work, she kept calm and professional and sorted everything out so quickly! Our entire experience has been nothing but a pleasure and all staff have surpassed expectations! Thank you again from the first time we viewed the Orangery, throughout all of our meetings and especially on the big day, you were all incredible and I cannot thank you enough!
We got married here in June 2019 and it honestly was the most perfect day ever. We looked at lots and lots of venues and The Orangery was the first venue we visited and I couldn't get it out of my head. I knew it was going to be the one. We dealt with Anne and she was amazing. Always got back to me with any queries I had and was fully supportive throughout the lead up to our big day. Every aspect was absolutely perfect. The venue is truly amazing and there is a reason it has a 5 star rating. I am extremely picky and want every thing perfect, and honestly it all really was the best day of my life and I so so wish I could do it all over again. Liz from catering was also amazing and helped with any dietary requirements and had a lot of patience dealing with fussy brides like myself! Please don't hesitate to go and look at this venue and I bet you will end up booking. No venue will have every single tiny thing you want but this place comes very very close!
We cannot thank you and The Orangery Team enough for giving us the perfect day for our vow renewal. Every one of our guests have told us how delicious the food was and how beautiful the venue is and how much they enjoyed themselves. And I know I keep saying it, but thank you for giving our backsides a kick when we first met you, and for asking questions on things we hadn’t even thought of! With best wishes, Denise and Ian
