Our favourite wedding venues in Kent

By 25 January, 2022Bridal

As wedding makeup artists we’ve been lucky enough to visit many amazing wedding venues across the UK but we have to say,  a lot of our favourite venues are in the county of Kent. We love Kent for weddings because there is such a vast selection of venues!  It can be a difficult decision for a Bride and Groom to make as there’s plush city hotels, sea view venues, stately homes and barnyards to choose from. We’ve collated a list of our favourites that we have worked at over the years.

Salomons Estate – Turnbride Wells

Situated just two miles outside the spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells, Salomons Estate is a stunning Victorian mansion, designed by the acclaimed architect Decimus Burton. It has a whopping 36 acres of garden & parkland, so its your perfect country wedding venue that is still really easy to get to from London. Some of the estates offerings include a Victorian theater, seating up to 230 guests and an intricately decorated Gold Room, an intimate function with direct access to the gardens.
