Anyone getting married in Kent?

I am.

Im not actually from Kent. I live here & go to uni here. My fiance and all his family are from Kent. (Medway)

How are everyone's plans going?

Doesn everyone have their copy of "A Kentish Wedding"? How amazing is that!? Better than any mag that costs about a fiver...and it's free! yay


  • hi ya, i'm getting married on the kent/sussex border. i also have my copy of a kentish wedding! Have the church and venue, hope to start dress shopping soon. So how long until your big day?

    Im getting married at the Archbishop's Palace in Maidstone. It's beautiful! Then our reception is held at the King Charles Hotel in Gillingham. It's brilliant, you don't even pay for the room, just to hire the staff.
  • hi lovepigeon im getting married in withyham church, its so cute upon the top of a hill. and the reception is at the high rocks they don't charge room hire its just food and stuff. The best thing is you can arrive there by steam train from the station at sainsburys. Do you know where you are getting married yet?

    Aw that sounds lovely, we are choosing between High Rocks and The Beacon, just need to take H2B to visit them to make final decision. Steam train yey :\) - I remember getting it to Groombridge and the countryside is very pretty near the High Rocks! We are not religious so will probably have the ceremony at the same place although I think it must be really nice to have the two parts of the day more distinct like you get with a church ceremony. I would quite like to have a humanist ceremony but then you have the whole bother of having to do it separately at registry office first.

    I'm not sure when we are getting married yet - hopefully summer 2009 or 2010 depending on whether we manage to get jobs on graduating. When are you getting married?
  • Getting married on the 29th may next year, we chose the bank holiday! More time off! Didn't look at the beacon but loads of other places! Its your day do what you want, if you were religious you would go to a church so people would expect to travel between different venues.

    newmammy - i went to a reception at The Little Silver Hotel in Tenterden and it is lovely there, did look at having my reception there but it didn't seat enough people for me which was a shame.

    What is up with this thread, it is 3 pages of the same posts?

    Anyway, Mrs_C2B I am going for a larger Cuff bracelet, chandelier style earrings and something sparkly in my hair - so far have only found the bracelet! It's hard isn't it as the dress is so detailed, where did you buy your dress from? When are you gettign married? xxx
  • Lola - I got the dress from White Mischief Bridal in Henfield, I Went to a place in Tunbridge Wells first to try it on but they were really rude so didn't want to buy it from there! I have got a silk flower to wear in my hair and was going to wear a watch H2B bought me, might just leave it at that.

    I'm getting married on the 17th July this year, wrote the invites yesterday! so excited now! When is your big day? xxx
