Better Value than DIY


Whilst we don't offer The Oak Grove as a land only option, we know that hiring a field and doing it all yourself is something that many couples consider. The following breakdown gives an idea of the costs for a DIY wedding from scratch - anywhere in the countryside.


  • Rental of site £2,500
  • Charge to co-ordinate deliveries from various suppliers £500
  • Rental of Stretch Tent (1.5 times as much floor area as triple hat Tipi) £6,500
  • Rental of solid floor £750
  • Rental of five luxury toilets £1850
  • Rental of generator £350
  • Rental of tables and chairs £750
  • Rental of cutlery, crockery and glasses £350


Total £13,550 - plus the hassle of organising a number of suppliers yourself on the day


Remember - this is a price comparison - not a stress comparison!

Grove T&Cs


  • Visits and viewings; please contact us by e-mail or phone to arrange a time to visit. We will do all we can to accommodate you!
  • Firm bookings require a signed contract and a £2,000 deposit (payable in two stages if more than 2 years ahead). The next payment is due 12 months before your Wedding bringing the amount to 50% of the total contract. A payment, to bring amounts to 75%, is due 6 months before and then the final 25% (and a refundable £1,000 security deposit) are due 3 months prior to your Wedding.
  • Bar and music must be finished by 11.00pm
  • Taxis should be booked no later than 11.30pm
  • While we’re happy for you to make the Grove your own, we ask that no decorative alterations are made to the tents themselves and that you are sympathetic to our lovely oak trees
  • There is an abundance of wildlife in the area, so only very well behaved dogs and guide dogs are allowed
  • The site is bounded on one side by the River Medway, there is also a shallow 'swale' within the grove - so we ask that the hirers are responsible for making sure that children and others are kept safe
