I’ll always have a special place in my heart for Kent, and not just because it’s known as the Garden of England. I was born here in a little town called Deal. As a Luxury Kent Wedding Photographer, I must show you what are in my opinion the Top Kent Wedding Venues.

If you are planning a wedding in Kent, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to venues. From rustic barns and historic castles to elegant country homes and charming village halls, there is something for every couple. Over the years that I’ve been photographing weddings I have had the pleasure to shoot at some awesome venues – here’s a few that I absolutely love:

Marleybrook House

It’s just so dang cool.

Like, who gets to have a fairground at their wedding? You do, if you book your wedding here at Marleybrook House.

It’s also easy to get to and it’s accommodating for large weddings. On top of that, there’s heck loads of places for shade during a hot wedding. Not to mention there is ample places to steal time for your couple shoot and the sun sets in a really idyllic position.

Check out the last wedding I did there here, and keep your eyes peeled as I have weddings booked there for 2025 & 2026.

The Old Kent Barn

The locations, the organisation, the food – these guys continually deliver amazing weddings all year round.

I’m also really thankful to Kylie there for her friendship over the years. The Old Kent Barn have always championed me by having me on their recommended suppliers list for over 5 years running now.

TOKB host lots of weddings, but this isn’t at the exception of world-class quality. You can rest assured that you will be treated like royalty if you have your wedding here.

Winters Barns

Contrary to what you might think, Winters Barns don’t just do winter weddings – but they always do beautiful ones.

The thing I love about Winter’s Barns is that there are sectioned off areas that are helpful and close to each other. For example, you have the outside courtyard with a cute bridge in the middle. Then you have a reception area at one wing with a bar next to it. Finally you have a ceremony/dancefloor space next to that. It’s worth checking out for sure.

The difference between TOKB & Winters Barn all has to do with the different feel between both venues. I think that if you truly connect with the people running it, you will have lots of peace for your wedding. Both Top Kent Wedding Venues have lovely people working there!

Reach Court Farm

Another beautiful venue, Reach Court Farm is closest to the sea and that makes me happy!

Reach Court Farm is a hidden gem in the Kent countryside, a rustic wedding venue with a big heart. It’s set against the backdrop of rolling fields, cute trees, and a charming field with horses. I loved introducing Rosie & Alfie to the horses on their wedding, it was so cute.

The venue offers a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces for your ceremony and reception yet the marquee-lined barn is more popular for the reception. While the gardens are perfect for the evening or the ceremony, in my opinion Reach Court Farm truly shines in the warmer months.

Finally, here are some other Kent Wedding Venues that I have my eye on but yet to capture there, so if you’re planning your wedding there do get in touch.
