Reasons to Get Married in Kent

When planning a wedding, the venue is the most important part – aside from ensuring that the brides/grooms turn up on time, of course! Your venue is the part of your wedding that guests will remember the most – it’ll be the background to all your photos, the place they watch your first dance, and the place that you spend the most important day of your lives. At this stage, it doesn’t matter if you’re unsure of whether to go for an outdoor marquee wedding, a classy hotel or a stately manner home – what’s crucial is choosing what county you want to tie the knot in! If you’re stuck for ideas – why not consider Kent?

Nestled in the very South East corner of the country, Kent is often called ‘The Garden of England’ – a phrase coined by Henry VIII. And it’s for a reason. Kent is home to some of the most picturesque areas in the country, with the Kent Downs and lots of gorgeous beaches. If you can’t decide between countryside or coastal – Kent could be the perfect option for you! Imagine a beachside ceremony, followed by a reception in a gorgeous country lodge… Ideal!

Logistically speaking, Kent’s easy connections to London make it ideal for transporting everything to your venue: from hats to cakes, rings to champagne, dogs-turned-groomsmen to mother-of-the-brides – it’ll be a breeze to get everything to your wedding. Also, everyone’s heard of ‘the white cliffs of dover’. If you don’t fancy going abroad for your honeymoon, the white cliffs could make a perfect backdrop for your coastal strolls as newlyweds! Not to mention, some of the gay-friendly venues are out of this world (think the manor house of your dreams…)

Want some quirky talking points about Kent to give to your guests? Look no more…

  1. We’ve discussed the logistics of getting everything transported to your wedding… But did you know that the white painted road signs we rely on nowadays were first painted in Ashford, Kent?
  2. Fordwich (near Canterbury) is the smallest town in the UK!
  3. Kent is the main area in Great Britain for growing hazelnuts. Maybe you could serve them at your wedding…
  4. Britain’s first motor show was held in Tunbridge Wells in 1895. Why not use this as inspiration, and turn up in a vintage car?
  5. Pluckley is reportedly the most haunted village in the country.
