Kent is known as the garden of England and we are surrounded by stunning rural landscapes so it’s no surprise that many of our brides choose a country theme for their wedding day.
If you are looking for a rustic venue, Winters Barns near Canterbury could be the perfect place, with its beamed ceilings and seven acres of beautiful grounds – perfect for photographs!
The barns are just outside the city and only a few minutes’ drive from the A2, with easy access from London and the south east. But the venue feels a world away thanks to its secluded location and tranquil atmosphere.
The decor is neutral so couples can make it their own and if the British weather is not on your side fear not – everything is in one place so there is no need to go outside. With some venues, that can mean a challenge for photographers but at Winters Barns the combination of the natural light and our skills means you won’t be disappointed.
If you want to take advantage of the surroundings, there is also a cart barn licensed for outdoor civil ceremonies that also makes a great backdrop for photographs.
We love: The grounds, the fact that the barns are heated in winter and air conditioned in summer, and the always-cheerful wedding planner Liz.
Why not?: Use contemporary flowers and bright colours for a funky country feel – you could plan activities such as welly wanging or giant garden games to keep guests entertained.
