Seven Stunning Wedding Venues in Kent

White Cliff of Dover

From the White Cliffs of Dover to the North Downs and the Weald, Kent is home to some of the best areas of outstanding natural beauty, earning its title “The Garden of England.”

It’s fair to say that Kent has some of the most picturesque locations in the UK to tie the knot, not to mention a few out of the ordinary locations too! Here are some of our favourites.

Hever Castle

Built in 1270, Hever Castle overflows with history – it was once home to Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII.

The castle offers 28 en-suite bedrooms – each uniquely styled and refurbished retaining their classic and historic influences. And, the cherry on the cake, it overlooks a stunning country lake and Italian gardens.

You have the option to have your ceremony within the stately grandeur of the castle itself, the country house atmosphere of the Astor Wing, or within the magnificent Italian gardens overlooking the lake.
