5 Wedding Venues in Kent

The Secret Garden in Ashford

Nestled in a tucked away corner of Ashford, The Secret Garden is a truly enchanting venue that offers a perfect private setting for capturing love stories.

Inside this hidden gem you are surrounded by beautiful gardens, filled with vibrant flowers and greenery, creating a relaxed and tranquil atmosphere.

As one of their recommended wedding photographers, I have had the pleasure of documenting countless love stories at The Secret Garden, and each time, the beauty of this venue never fails to amaze me. 

Whether it’s the charming gazebo or cosy chapel where couples exchange their vows or the enchanting gardens where we capture candid moments, every corner of this venue offers endless opportunities for stunning and natural wedding photos. The glass house is a gorgeous, unique space for an intimate wedding ceremony or wedding breakfast and the coach house is a versatile room offering great light and opening up onto their sun drenched terrace. 

This wedding venue in Kent offers serene surroundings which provide the ideal backdrop for gorgeous portraits, authentic moments and timeless memories. From the golden hour sunsets (one of my favourite times of day for photographs) that cast a warm glow over the gardens to the delicate light that filters through the trees, every moment is bathed in natural beauty.

The team at the Secret Garden are as wonderful as the surroundings. They are well versed in providing you with amazing service, great food and a wonderful wedding day experience. 

Trust me when I say, your wedding album will be filled with images that perfectly encapsulate the magic of the day you dreamed of.

The Oak Barn at Frame Farm in Benenden

Tucked away in the idyllic countryside of Benenden, The Oak Barn at Frame Farm offers a charming and rustic setting.

The Oak Barn is a wedding venue in Kent that exudes class and a sophisticated but cosy atmosphere that immediately makes you feel at home. With its exposed wooden beams, vaulted ceilings and immaculate finish, it’s the perfect place to create a warm and welcoming ambience. It is an amazing choice for eco conscious couples too.

The natural light that filters through the barn’s large windows bathes the space in light. But for a smaller more contemporary space, you could choose the Byre. With doors and windows all along one side, offering views across the countryside valley, there is no shortage of gorgeous light in here either. 

Surrounded by rolling fields and breathtaking views, The Oak Barn offers endless opportunities for photography – from the candid moments and details, to the group shots and beautiful portraits. The valley with amazing views as the sunsets, the pond with weeping willows and the sweeping long drive. You really are spoilt for choice.

With beautiful onsite accommodation this venue really does offer everything and provides a backdrop that will make your wedding album truly extraordinary.

At The Oak Barn, your love story unfolds in a setting that feels both intimate and grand. It’s a place where memories are made and cherished for a lifetime.
