Planning A Wedding In Kent

The happiest day of your life brings a lot of stress and tension before the big day! There are hundreds of things to plan, whether you have chicken or fish and if you leave the reception in style in a hot air balloon ride. Below are some ideas to give you some inspiration:

Getting Married The Old Fashioned Way

If you've been dreaming of your wedding your whole life, you've most probably thought of being married in a church. High ceilings and delicate decorations are a perfect setting for a wedding ceremony. St Mary's Church is a beautiful and historic site. The church is over 1000 years old and is rumoured to be the place of worship for Charles Dickens. It is hidden away from main traffic keeping your wedding as a private affair.

Choose The Right Reception For You

Once you have chosen your perfect ceremony location, it's time to choose where to have the reception! Perhaps you would like a historic stately home such as Hever Castle. Grand rooms and exquisite gardens host a magical venue for a reception. Or if you would prefer a smaller ceremony Dungeness Lighthouse is a perfect location. With panoramic views of the English Channel and room for just 30 people, you get a wonderful view and a small wedding in one!

Eat Locally

Kent is home to hundreds of local bakers, butchers and patisseries that you will never struggle to find local fresh food for your wedding. From hog roasts to homemade Chelsea buns you won't need to travel far to find what you're looking for. Wherever you decide to get married, research the local area and you will stumble upon some of the best food you will have ever tasted!

Keeping Your Guests Entertained

A wedding isn't a wedding without some fun filled entertainment that gets everyone involved. Hiring a local band is a great way of getting everyone on their feet and onto the dance floor. You can also hire a magician or a caricaturist to keep those guests who are dancing-shy entertained. Kent has hundreds of talented entertainers for you to choose from - you'll never be short of fun!

Sail Away In Style

A perfect way to end the perfect day - leave your wedding in a hot air balloon ride and watch the sun set over your glorious day.

Take off into the skies and admire the view of Kent's beautiful countryside while sipping on celebratory champagne, as the sun sets around you.
