A green wedding venue on the East Kent coast

The Pines Calyx holds just 10 weddings a year between April to November. We only run one wedding per weekend so you and your guests can relax and enjoy the exclusive use of the venue and venue garden. This limited offer allows us more time to focus on our wedding couples in balance with our charitable work. We welcome couples who share our low impact values and want to bring something truly unique to their day.


The Trust can provide the complete hire of the Pines Calyx as a venue for £2,500. This price includes full use of the venue, table linens and staffed bar all day and in to the evening.


Please note that the Trust does not supply the catering for your event, we can happily advise on various local suppliers. The same service is offered for music entertainment. 



Exclusive use of the entire Pines Calyx and adjoining terrace with option of your evening reception held in the Lower Roundel. Your ceremony will take place in the Lower Roundel.
Your wedding breakfast will take place in the Upper Roundel, after which you and your guests can make use of the entire building for dancing, drinking and merriment.
Evening entertainment and music would be set up in the Lower Roundel following the wedding breakfast, allowing the guests to make full use of the whole of the Calyx.

Wedding venue reviews


We can’t wait to come back to the Pines to enjoy the gardens and give the tearoom a visit. It’s a place that will always have the most special place in our hearts and we will treasure the memories the Pines team have helped us make. Thank you so so much.

My husband and I just had our Wedding Reception afternoon tea at the Pines Calyx on 1st June. I just wanted to say what a beautiful and unique venue this was, and how lovely and relaxed the atmosphere was. Thank you very much to Jane and Simon for allowing us to create some truly special memories in this place and to share it with our closest friends and family. Everyone was so impressed with the gardens, the view and the venue itself. The afternoon tea was delicious and we enjoyed the Pimms too! We hope to return in the future to celebrate with you again!

Our guests all loved the venue, both the views and the environmental ethos. The inside space is perfect for the ceremony, speeches, and dancing all night, and the gardens are absolutely stunning. We have so many gorgeous photos to look forward to, and can’t thank the team enough for making our day so stress-free and enjoyable from start to finish.
