Located in the Southeast of England, where it is renowned for its warm climate, May’s average temperatures range between 15-17 degrees Celsius, ensuring a mildly warm day with glorious sunshine, at Hayne House, making it perfect for a spring wedding.  Nestled in Kent’s picturesque landscape near the Kent coast, during British Summer Time, when you can, weather permitting, legally marry outside, our venue offers couples hybrid weddings.  Hybrid wedding venues give you both an outdoor and indoor licensed ceremony space to choose from for your perfect wedding day.

Here at Hayne House, for spring weddings we offer you the gorgeous outdoor Pavilion, nestled in the beautiful gardens and surrounded by mature trees.  For indoor ceremonies, we offer exquisite purpose-built Orangery, which provides the perfect wet-weather contingency. In April the Cherry Blossom fills the air with a sweet scent and in May, the Hunting Lodge, previously the home of Edward and Mrs Simpson in the 1920’s is adorned with long clusters wisteria, fragrant lilac flowers (racemes) that will be further amplified this year as we repaint the house.

In spring our couples have showcased baby blue, timeless greens and white, cherry and gorgeous pinks that made the Pavilion and Orangery pop with colour!
