My jaw dropped open when I saw this lovely new - and completely unique - wedding venue set in the heart of the Kent countryside. Imagine tying the knot in a beautiful American New England style barn followed by a marquee style reception for up to 200 guests in the surrounding meadow. It couldn't be more picturesque if it tried.

The fully licensed barn can accommodate 70 people, but if you've dreamed of a church wedding, then take your pick of the local churches including the pretty 16th century Fairfield Church, which is just a stone's throw away. The town of Rye is a 10-minute drive away and offers plenty of accommodation for your guests. As bride and groom, it's your prerogative to spend the first night as Mr & Mrs in the adorably rustic and romantic cabin beside the barn where you wed (£200 per night including breakfast).

For brides who like the idea of a venue that's more 'done' than 'DIY', there's a full wedding styling service available, and to help you make up your mind if this is the place for you, here are the all important rates: £4,500 (including a marquee for up to 70 guests) plus £150 for the ceremony (excluding registrar's fee). If you're still undecided, take a look at the website and see more gorgeous photos of this special place.
