If you are interested in a country wedding in Kent , you can't go wrong with a boutique country house hotel or an elegant stately home wedding venue.

Country houses and stately homes have stunning spaces for both wedding ceremonies and receptions. If you've always dreamed of tying the knot in a picture gallery or orangery before retiring to the grounds for cocktails and an evening reception in the ballroom, then a country house in Kent sounds like the perfect venue for you.

As country manors are houses first and foremost, they can feel like an elegant home-from-home. Some venues will have accommodation on site, usually with stunning decor like roll-top baths and four-poster beds, while others may have smaller hotels or B&Bs in the grounds. This means that you’ll have the advantage of a stunning bridal suite and accommodation for immediately family or the bridal party on site.

The setting of most country houses in Kent also makes them gorgeous options for your wedding photography. Many stately homes have rolling grounds and manicured gardens, with many wonderful features like lakes, flower gardens and distinctive fountains and mazes. There are plenty of opportunities for beautiful wedding photos both inside and out - your wedding photographer will be spoiled for choice! Make sure to take in the gardens on your venue viewing, even if you’re marrying in the winter.

Having your wedding in the countryside not only means that you’ll have stunning wedding photos, but also privacy for your wedding day. The stunning views and composed countryside surroundings make your wedding in Kent a romantic getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Country house hotels and stately home wedding venues are perfect for you if:

  • You've always wanted a fairytale wedding day
  • You want an outdoor element to your reception
  • Light and airy spaces appeal to you
  • You want a variety of locations for your photos
  • You need a small amount of luxury accommodation

FAQs on Country House and Stately Home Wedding Venues in Kent

How much do stately home venues charge for wedding hire?

As with all wedding venues, costs for stately home and country house weddings vary, but you may be surprised at how affordable some of the options can be! You don’t always need to have an A-list budget to get your own mansion in Kent for your wedding. If you’re looking to cut costs, then consider a midweek wedding or marrying in the low season, such as early spring or late autumn. Winter weddings work perfectly for stately homes too, as they often have large fireplaces and cozy wood-panelled rooms.

Is it possible to have exclusive use of a country house in Kent for the whole wedding weekend?

Many country house wedding venues will offer you venue hire on an exclusive use basis. This means that the venue is yours alone for the duration of your wedding. Sometimes this will be for your wedding day alone, and in other cases, you can hire your wedding venue for an entire weekend for you and your guests. This may incur an extra charge, but if you want a luxurious weekend of exclusivity for guests with catering staff on hand, then this could be the perfect option for your wedding weekend. You will be able to find exclusive use country houses in Kent using our venue filters.

What wedding dress should I wear for a country house wedding?

Country houses in Kent come with plenty of original features, such as marbled staircases, dazzling chandeliers and classical artwork. Play up the drama of your surroundings with an equally glamorous wedding dress! Full skirts, cathedral veils and statement trains look right at home in the ballrooms and art galleries of a manor. Romantic fabrics and vintage lace are ideal, as they're reminiscent of English socialites. Whatever dress you decide to wear on your wedding day, you will be able to find your dream stately home in Kent on Guides for Brides.
