Your I Dos
Thanks to a number of licensed ceremony areas you can chose to marry in the grand Marble Hall, the snug and cosy Undercroft, the walled garden, the rose garden, the Linhay Barn, The Big Yurt or the Cowshed Barn. Make an enquiry now to book your show-around to discover your favourite "I do" spot for yourself.
When the dinner and speeches are over, you and your guests can head down to the Undercroft for the party to end all parties! Adjoined to the Linhay Barn, you can party into the night, and even take a dip in the hot tub with a cheeky nightcap.
To make sure your day runs like clockwork, the Kingston Estate will assign you with your own personal wedding planner and team to bring your wedding vision to life, leaving you with plenty of time to spend with your friends and family.
The Estate's in-house bar manager can create your very own drinks package for your wedding day; from champagne to aperitifs, the mixologist can even create a bespoke wedding cocktail specially for your day. With regards to food they have their own well respected creative catering team who specialise in local, seasonal produce, and will work with you to create your own bespoke menu based on your preferences. They can provide anything and everything from pre-wedding street style food to get the weekend started, breakfast stations to absorb any headaches, delectable canapes to keep hunger at bay, to the main meal itself with formal plated meals or table feasts. The choice is yours and everything is tailored to you; there are no set menus.
When you and your guests are ready to retire for the night, you have the choice of sleeping in the mansion itself or in one of nine luxury cottages within the estate's grounds. The mansion can sleep eight people, the cottages sleep 46, and the two luxury barns sleep 32. In the morning, you can treat yourselves to an indulgent breakfast by requesting a restorative breakfast station complete with bacon sandwiches and strong coffee! And, should you wish to linger longer, the estate can arrange for late checkouts, a farewell brunch or barbecue and ensure you have access to some garden games and the swimming pool.
