How Green is your Supplier?


How Green is your Supplier?

So we've put together a ten point criteria, the Green Gauge, that we ask all our partners, your wedding suppliers, to comply with for your peace of mind. The wedding industry covers a broad activity base and you will have your own benchmark of how 'green' you want your suppliers to be. We happily accept wedding suppliers who are trying their best and can check 4 or more criteria on our Green Gauge.

Bore Place is Just 25 miles from London on a Rustic Estate 

Lying in the beautiful Kent countryside, a charming, historic Jacobean manor house is the focal point of this rustic country estate.

The house is surrounded by pretty gardens alive with flowers in the summer months, as well as 500 acres of rolling green fields and ancient woodlands. We want you to use the house and gardens  as your own.

A walled garden enclosing a reflecting ornamental pond creates a stunning backdrop for your wedding.

Check out our beautiful  17th century timber barn, a perfect venue for a traditional, vintage style ceremony, seating up to 100 guests. 

Get in touch to talk through any ideas you have and we’ll help you make the most of the space and bring your vision to life.

We only hold a small number of weddings a year to ensure that we can give each one the attention it deserves. We will be on-hand throughout your planning and we offer support on the day to ensure you can relax and enjoy yourselves. 

Celebrations can last for a whole weekend!

Time flies! Many couples choose Bore Place for their wedding so that their guests can stay overnight and their celebrations can last for a whole weekend. We can accommodate 50 guests overnight on-site, with extra capacity for campers and glampers. All our accommodation has fully equipped kitchens, dining rooms and comfortable sitting rooms with access to the gardens of Bore Place. There are a number of licensed rooms and outdoor spaces at Bore Place where you can hold your ceremony and all can be set up exactly as you like.

Hog roast with our sumptuous salads, or handmade sourdough pizza

Our kitchen is passionate about simple, well-balanced food, using seasonal produce from our own organic farm and market gardens as well as locally-sourced organic food. We can tailor our menus to suit your style, budget and any dietary choices. 

You can choose a seasonal menu or something more informal: a BBQ with the finest local organic meat, delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes, a hog roast with our sumptuous salads, or handmade sourdough pizza cooked to order in our wood-fired oven. Grazing menus can also be created to include sharing platters, cheese boards, sliced meats and dips, accompanied with a selection of our homemade breads.

You are also welcome to bring in your own caterers and suppliers.

The Legacy of Your Day…

By holding your wedding at Bore Place, the legacy of your big day will live on. All profits from weddings held here are directed straight back into our educational courses and programmes to support young people. Bore Place is committed to working towards being a model of sustainable living, learning and working. From the energy we use, to the food we produce and the way we work, Bore Place challenges conventional ideas and behaviours with fresh thinking. For us being a ‘not for profit’ is something we are really proud of and enables us to lead in the areas of social change we believe in.
