    There is a venue called Elite Venue which is in Gravesend. It allows external catering and self (access to kitchen). The venue has a room with allows about 300 guests.

    It shouldnt cost you more than £1000 to hire it out.


    Hope that helps.

    Hi CherrlyTomi

    I don't know about Dartford but there are some venues in Blackheath that aren't too expensive. Have you tried Mycenae House? They allow external caterers and much cheaper than other venues like Blackheath Halls which although is absolutley lovely it was way above our budget. Will have a think about some other venues me and my OH had a look at.

    I'm getting married in Blackheath too! What church are you getting married at?

  • Hi AG

    A wedding venue in Beckhenham allows external caterers.

    The venue is called Club Langley and it holds 250 people.

  • Hi I am looking for a venue for a renewel of vows but not too expensive. I would like the blessing and reception in the same place. I am also looking at somewhere that either does carribean food or allows outside caterers. I live in Hemel Hempstead so looking for somewhere nearby or possibly North London, Wembley, Harrow area.
