The Top Five Reasons to get married in Kent

We love Kent, not only is it the Garden of England but it is full of all the best secret attractions and is the home of Hayne House.

If you are looking to get married in Kent, we highly suggest before you come and make Kent your ‘destination wedding location‘ you should get to know the area a little better first. Why not make it a cheeky UK staycation?

Why should you choose to get married in Kent? Let us tell you…

  • Good Food & Drink

Here in the garden of England, we are fortunate to be surrounded by glorious farms, so local and fresh produce is in abundance! There are some fantastic restaurants including the amazing Hide & Fox, which is stone’s throw away from Hayne House in Saltwood village. We also are lucky to have fresh produce from local bake house, Docker’s Bakery, beer from HopFuzz Brewery and wine from Gusbornes and Chapeldown. When you get married in Kent, you can be assured you will be getting the best food and drink possible.

  • Weather

We must talk about the weather here in Kent. We are so lucky to get beautiful sunny weather and with storms few and far between, even if you’re saying ‘I Do’ in the winter months, you will more than likely get that winter sunshine.

Our gorgeous outdoor pavilion is the best place to get married under the Kent sunshine, so ladies make sure to have your sunglasses in your clutch and boys make sure your suits aren’t too hot!

  • Beaches

With hot weather, bring on the beaches! In Kent we have so many to choose from, you can go for sand or pebbles we have it all. If saying ‘I do at Hayne House,’ we encourage you to go off to Hythe Beach once you are married, and to snap some gorgeous shots on the sand. If you are making a trip out of your wedding day, then make sure to check out the following:

If you want to travel sustainably then don’t forgot to look into offsetting your journeys and doing your best to go electric where you can. Ecologi is the best for this.

  • History
