At Hayne House, we understand finding the perfect wedding venue in Kent can be quite a task. If you are just engaged, the idea of starting your search and narrowing down what you might want for your dream day can be a daunting prospect!
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO WHEN THERE ARE SO MANY WEDDING VENUES TO CHOOSE FROM?
Because there are so many different types of wedding venues in Kent to consider – from hotels, and garden marquees to manor houses. We always suggest booking multiple viewings so you can get a feel for what works for you and where you can envision your special day taking place.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO FIRST + SHOULD YOU COMPROMISE?
At Hayne House we believe the first thing to do is to sit down with each other and discuss what is important to you both. Do you have family flying in front overseas? Is having a cosy fireplace a must for a winter wedding? Or do you want a venue which provides lots of vegan options? Is a venue which champions sustainability important to you both?
In terms of compromising, you must think about different factors, such as do you want a specific date, leaving you with little flexibility? Do you want exclusive use? Meaning hotels probably won’t be for you as they don’t offer that level of privacy. It is always good to write a good list of what you would be willing to change in order to secure your perfect Kent wedding venue.
LET’S NARROW DOWN THE LIST!
Key words: We always suggest when using google to search for your ultimate Kent venue, that you should use some keywords which help sum up your day, such as ‘Orangery,’ ‘Summer Venue,’ ‘Contemporary.’ Using venue searchers such as Bridebook and Hitched, you can easily search for venue using these words and narrow your search down to only Kent, making it nice and easy!
GOING TO VENUES
Having conducted many private viewings with couples, here is how you can help make your viewing process so much easier. Doing your research of the venue, the area in Kent it surrounds and what they offer, is crucial! You will be able to make a list of questions, which you can ask at every venue. Try to have a rough idea of your guest numbers for both day and evening, this will help you be able to visualise your day in a venue’s space! Finally, always get a quote before you go. We firmly believe in working with budgets and not blowing it (unless you want too!) so always make sure you get a quote from your venue before visiting, so you don’t fall in love with something outside of your budget.
SO, HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN YOU’VE HIT THE JACKPOT AND FOUND ‘THE ONE’, THE PERFECT KENT VENUE?
It can be a bit of a surprise finding your perfect venue. We believe you’ll know it is the one, if you can picture yourselves getting married there and you just don’t want to leave!
