A new Register Office for Kent at Oakwood House

Oakwood House in Maidstone has undergone a major renovation to offer three beautiful new ceremony rooms and has replaced The Archbishop’s Palace as the county Register Office for Kent.

Just a short distance from the town centre, Oakwood House is a grand Victorian mansion set amongst mature gardens and tall trees, giving couples a stunning backdrop for their wedding photographs. Wheelchair accessible with free parking, Oakwood’s three newly decorated, contemporary ceremony rooms will include The Kentish Suite - a large ceremony room for up to 80 people, The Garden Room - a medium sized ceremony room with a terrace for up to 40 people, and The Study - a small, panelled ceremony room for up to 15 people.

Please note, room capacity is all attendees (not including the couple and Registration staff)

Please note that we are a ceremony only venue and cannot facilitate receptions or offer accommodation.

Ceremony fees can be found here
