Hotel wedding venues in Kent
Hotel du Vin Tunbridge Wells
The Crescent Turner Hotel
Famously known as the garden of England, Kent has a reputation for its beauty and its easy to see why. Home of Charles Dickens in the quintessentially British seaside town of Broadstairs, home of Tracey Emin in Margate, and destination of London’s most fashionable who frequent the coastal town of Whitstable, Kent is a fabulously convenient location to reach as well as being a charming place to get married.
Coastal borders and a landscape of gentle hills, farmland and country estate, peppered with English vineyards that benefit from the area’s comparatively mild climate are all part of the fabric of this beautiful part of England.
Bordering Greater London, East Sussex and Surrey, it can be judged by equally charming neighbours, and is home to architecture that tells the story of England’s rich history in the form of icons such as Canterbury Cathedral, Rochester Cathedral and Anne Boleyn’s childhood home Hever Castle.
This gentile part of the world is also known for its refined hospitality, reflected in its array of hotels that are perfect for weddings and celebrations. The Crescent Turner perhaps, which is named for the artist who famously immortalised the area in his paintings, or Read’s, a Georgian manor house on the way to Dover with a generous flourish of antiques and swathes of dramatic curtains. The idea of getting married somewhere so utterly charming before heading on to the Channel Tunnel and hot legging it to Paris for your honeymoon is surely the stuff that romantic novels are made of?
