Wedding Venues

Getting date availability combined with deciding on what’s most important to you in a venue can be really tricky and you probably have a thousand unanswered questions. There are many things to consider but we are here to help guide you through this decision making process and secure a suitable date for the wedding with a venue that suits your requirements, all within budget.
We work with all venues throughout the county and there are literally hundreds and hundreds of them. If you have already chosen your venue, we will work together as a team to create your dream wedding in Kent. Below are just a few of our favourites to inspire you.

Castles

Hever Castle, Lympne Castle, Leeds Castle, Cooling Castle Barns and Westenhanger Castle are just a few of the magnificent castle venues in Kent that we have had the pleasure of working with. A real wow factor!

Wedding Country Houses and Stately Homes

Becoming ever popular for none religious ceremonies and for people who want the whole celebration in one place. Eastwell Manor,Swarling Manor, Hayne Barn House, Hempstead House, St. Julian's Club, Finchcocks, Ashford Boys Hall, The Knowle and The Little Hermitage are just a very small selection from the vast choice of this venue type in Kent.

Wedding Barns

Old Kent Barn, Aylesford Priory Barn, Ratsbury Barn, Odos Barn, Winters Barns, Lower Grange Farm, Ruffynes Barn & The Great Barn are just a tiny selection, the Kent countryside is littered with these kinds of wedding venues. With countryside as your wedding backdrop and a beautifully restored historic barn (often a oast barn) in which to celebrate your marriage, what better way to have a lovely English country wedding?

Typically English Vintage Venues

For vintage chic in the most beautiful of settings The Secret Garden and Frasers Farm are two of our favourite venues that have a little something that no other wedding venue does.

Village Halls for Weddings

There are some lovely village halls around Kent, nearly one in every village. Some are run down but below is a selection that have been lovingly restored or are brand new and provide a very flexible and budget solution for a wedding reception: Smarden village hall, Egerton village hall, Chilham village hall, Elham village hall, Sandyacres, Petham village hall, Godmersham village hall.

Weddings by the Sea

For a bit of the Kent seaside with beautiful views and that holiday feel we absolutely love The Whitstable Beacon House, The Grand Folkestone, Hythe Imperial Hotel, Whitstable Lobster Shack and Leas Cliffe Hall. The county of Kent is practically surrounded by sea so why not embrace this and have a perfect English seaside wedding. We have lots of ideas of how to create a great theme and style for your wedding by the sea.

Hotels

Hotels provide a very safe haven for a wedding - they normally have a vast amount of experience and a large staff team, well equipped kitchens and of course all your guests and you can stay in the same place. Here are just a few that we have enjoyed working with recently: Eastwell Manor, Chilston Park, Broome Park, Hythe Imperial Hotel, Tudor Park, The Spa Hotel, Ashford International Hotel, The Little Silver Hotel, Howfield Manor, Abbots Barton Hotel and the Abode Canterbury.

Private Houses/Weddings at Home

If you're lucky enough to live in a home that is large enough to be your wedding venue, then we hope we're lucky enough to help you organise it! We can source all the equipment and suppliers necessary to create a beautiful "stay at home" wedding day. Alternatively if you would like us to source a luxury "house to hire" for your wedding, please contact us.

Wedding Marquees & Garden Venues

The Wise Wedding Venue, Turkey Mill, Secret Garden, Ramada Dover, or Hayne Barn House are all venues with permanent marquees attached. Alternatively you may have a garden or land of your own that you wish to use to hire a marquee. If this is the case, please don't hesitate to contact us to aid with supplying all the necessary equipment and supplies. We also have access to a few land sites where marquees can be erected and know of hotels that will add a marquee to their land if necessary.

Exceptionally Large Wedding Venues

Cobham Hall, Blazing Donkey Country Hotel, Court Stairs Manor, Ramada Hotel & Resort Maidstone, Salomons, Westenhanger Castle. For guests of 200 or more the above venues can accommodate your magnificent event.

Interesting & Novelty Wedding Venues

Port Lympne Mansion, The Romney Hythe and Dymchurch light railway station, Brands Hatch, Quex Park Powell Cotton Museum, Museum of Kent Life, The Falcons Rare Breed Centre. If you are looking for a venue with a twist, Kent has plenty to choose from.

Church Weddings

Due to the law of churches throughout England, you are required to get married in your local church or you must have some alliance with the church that you wish to wed in i.e. it’s your parents’ parish or it’s the parish where one of you grew up for example. Therefore choosing any church that you fancy to get married in is not often an option. There are some exceptions to this rule for example when popular wedding reception venues are very close to churches they will allow couples to use it for logistical convenience but you must bear in mind that you need to attend this church regularly for at least six months prior to the wedding, so if distance is a problem, it’s unlikely to be a feasible option. We can offer lots of advice and have access to great venues with nearby churches – ask us for more details.

Town Hall Wedding Ceremonies

Maidstone Town Hall, The Old Town Hall Gravesend, Deal Town Hall, Dover Town Hall, Tenterden Town Hall. Most larger towns have a town hall where you can conduct a civil ceremony.
