Lynsted Park

Lynsted Park near Faversham, Kent, offers an exceptional, private location for weddings and receptions. With only a limited number of days available for events, it’s a hidden gem of a place to get hitched. The wonderful grounds also make the perfect venue for other special events like birthdays, anniversaries and renewing vows.

Bar, Preferred Suppliers & Ideas

Bar & Drinks

We supply a diverse range of soft and alcoholic drinks, and are more than happy to order in specific things that you would like.   From reception champagne, to wines for lunch or dinner (wedding breakfast), to toasts for the speeches through to an evening bar, we take care of everything.   If you would like a paying bar, we can sort this out for you too. Professional refrigeration and ice are best set up 48 hours before any event and we organise all this and provide the glassware.   Our team of experienced staff will ensure that drinks flow smoothly from start to finish.

Obviously you don’t have to worry about clearing up and recycling, which is a good thing, as an event of 100 people can involve more than 1,000 glasses!  Our drinks prices and packages are very reasonable and we are happy to discuss any aspect of them with you.

A corkage charge applies if you wish to source the alcohol yourself.

Wedding Planner:
Available through events@lynstedpark.com. Nicky is a highly knowledgeable, independent wedding planner.  If you know you are going to be very busy or if being responsible for coordinating endless details fills you with dread then she is the answer.  She is not only kind, honest and objective but importantly, one phenomenal organiser.

We would be delighted to work with any of the people above on your behalf, or, if you prefer, simply contact them yourselves.  Over time we have learnt that some elements like the hire of a Reception Marquee is often best done by us liaising directly with the supplier in order that delivery, set up and other logistics run as smoothly as possible.  If you wish to use your own suppliers we would just ask that we meet them so that they are familiar with the layout and facilities available at Lynsted Park and that all health and safety requirements are in place.  We are, of course, very happy to talk through any aspects with you.
