Welcome to

Ripple Court Estate

A WORLD of wonder & adventure

The Venue

Ripple Court Estate welcomes you to experience a wedding like no other

Set against the backdrop of the spectacular Sir John Soane Manor House, the Georgian walled gardens are where the magic begins.

Beginning at the spellbinding Rose Garden ceremony space, carry your guests along to the secret walled gardens, replete with Victorian glasshouses and the gardener’s Gin Shed to the topiary garden and on to the enchanted wood.

As rich in eclectic eccentricity as it is in elegance, every inch of this incredible venue has been meticulously thought out to achieve a wedding that blends tradition and modernity. 

Tucked away in the rolling Kent Countryside behind the seaside town of Deal, Ripple Court welcomes you into a world like no other – where anything is possible.

Ripple Court Estate believes each wedding should be special and like no other. Whilst we love and offer the classic and the traditional, we also embrace the uncoventional, the innovative, the original and the unexpected, or a wondrous blend of the two 

We will take you and your guests on an enchanting adventure as you unravel the many magnificent layers of this extraordinary venue – a magical world of unusual spaces, moments and experiences to discover throughout the day.

Ripple Court Estate is an advocate for equality and inclusivity and welcomes all faiths, humanist ceremonies and LGBTQIA partners.

About us

Showcasing Kent's Local Producers

All of us at Ripple Court Estate are as proud about our property and its history as our local community here in East Kent. We are so excited to be working with some of the thriving businesses and producers in the area, and are comitted to be part of a community creating some extraordinary experiences.

We are working with local growing experts in the propagation of our kitchen gardens, and will look to use as much of this produce in our food and cocktails as we can! Our chef will source meat and dairy from his local farm; our ice cream will be biked over from an organic producer in Deal. Our Kent vineyard is award winning, and some of the world’s best wine is a short boat hop to France from our local beaches.

This local first approach aligns to our wider vison for Ripple Court which is to be as sustainable and ‘environmentally forward’ as we possibly can. This includes a near- future vision for Ripple Court to be powered by 100% green energy.
