A&H 31/07/23

Crown Lodge is the perfect venue for a rustic, woodland wedding. The Lodge itself is beautiful- rustic and that real cosy cabin feel. The surrounding trees are an amazing backdrop and the North Downs gives amazing views and beautiful photo opportunities.
The staff at Crown Lodge are amazing. From planning our day, to the day itself- they were with us and shared our vision every step of the way, making us feel relaxed and at ease.
We would definately recommend Crown Lodge as a perfect wedding venue.

An amazing day made better by an incredible team at Crown Lodge

Kylie and her team at Crown Lodge were simply amazing all the way through. From the planning stage Kylie was really helpful and very understanding of exactly what we wanted for our day and was always available if we needed anything. On the day of the wedding they went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly and made us feel really relaxed and looked after. We had some issues on the day with the (external) catering company arriving late but the team at Crown Lodge were able to get stuck in and help prep and serve the food to keep everything on track even though they were not obliged to do so, they really did save our day. I would highly recommend this venue.

Perfect wedding day

Myself & My husband booked about 2 years ago with Crown Lodge, we went and fell in love at first sight, it's set in a beautiful location and the venue is so peaceful. We met with Steph at the time and she was so helpful, answering any questions we had & providing us with advice and help throughout. We started dealing with Kylie who is just as fantastic as Steph, the ladies both have a very clear passion for weddings and making sure the couples have the best day. They were always on hand to help us.
Leading up to the wedding Kylie was on the ball with reminding us of things we needed to arrange and helping us with getting the final preparations in place for the right time.
On the day both Steph and Kylie were there to make sure nothing went wrong & if it did we didn't know anything about it. They kept our glasses topped up & out guests happy. They coordinated with all of the suppliers to make sure everything was where it should be when it needed to be.
We really couldn't have had a more organised and special day. Thank you!

A beautiful venue, stunning location and an amazing team behind it all!

We had our wedding here in May 2023 and couldn’t have asked for more from this venue! The location is absolutely beautiful, looking directly over the Kent Downs. The venue itself is very pretty, rustic and understated - which didn’t go unnoticed by our guests! We had several people ask us how we found such a lovely, hidden venue in such a stunning location.
Kylie, our designated event organiser, had been amazing in helping us plan the day and made sure everything ran smoothly. If we had any queries, she was quick to respond and gave helpful advise - which is really needed when you don’t know where to start with wedding planning! The staff really looked after us on the day of the wedding and we could see they really genuinely cared in ensuring we had the most wonderful day! We really can’t thank Kylie and the team enough, we feel so lucky to have found such an amazing place to say our ‘I do’s’!
Kylie & the team - thank you so much!!!

Loved The Crown Lodge!

We loved our Wedding at The Crown Lodge! We originally were meant to be married back in November 2020 but with covid we pushed it back to October 2022, and wow! The Autumnal colour scheme we chose worked so well with not only the season but the venue also. I loved the woodland feel and used that to decorate. Stephanie was great and gave us lots of tips and ideas and Kylie was fun and reassuring and helped us loads when we were feeling let down by family. I would always recommend The Crown Lodge, it’s just beautiful!

Perfect Venue

We would recommend Crown Lodge over and over again for any event, not just weddings. We got married in September in Wye Church and after headed over to Crown Lodge and we had the most perfect day.

From the first enquiry, Stephanie, Kylie and the team were incredible and nothing was too much trouble. The team were so friendly and professional and just put us at ease every step of the way.

On the day they were so efficient and just made sure the day ran as it should, which it did perfectly.

If I could do it all again, I would choose Crown Lodge every time. We wanted a rustic, woodland themed wedding and we felt like this venue was made for us, the amazing staff were just the cherry on the cake!

Thank you Stephanie, Kylie and all!! Xxx

Amazing venue

Words cannot describe how amazing this venue is. If you wanted a quirky, rustic, outdoor setting but don’t want to have a traditional barn style wedding, then this is the venue for you. Stephanie, Kylie and the team are just amazing. They give you all their years of expertise. They were great at communicating, replying to any email (with all my random questions) really quickly. We had total faith that if anything had gone wrong throughout the day, they would have just sorted it with no fuss. It’s great the venue allows you to bring in your own caterers, so you can do whatever wedding style you want. And the views across the Downs are just stunning. So many amazing photo opportunities. All our guests kept commenting how wonderful the venue is. We couldn’t have picked a better venue, and we actually feel sad that it’s over and we won’t see it again. We would 100% recommend Crown Lodge.

The most beautiful place

Crown Lodge is such a beautiful place. We searched for 8 years for a venue that allowed us everything we wanted, and we had the most magical day. Stephanie, Kylie and the team were just outstanding. They completely understood everything we wanted, no matter how bizarre or out-there, and the day flowed so smoothly. They looked after my husband and I beautifully (making sure we ate and drank too!)
My mum fell severely ill the week before we got married, she was in the ICU and was unable to make it on the day. The team were so understanding, and had we wanted to cancel everything they were prepared to help shift everything they could to help me. Instead we kept the date, and the team made the day so magical.
The views from the venue are stunning, a photographers dream!
The naked tipi was so much fun too, we made it into a “chill-out” zone, which our children loved toward the end of the night and they began to get tired.
The outdoor ceremony area is a beautiful blank canvas, and can be dressed anyway you can think, or left as it is so naturally gorgeous.
Everything about this place is dreamy, our guests were stunned by how peaceful and magical it all was, and we received so many compliments about the day. And so much of that was thanks to Crown Lodge and the wonderful team! Thank you

The most perfect wedding venue!

We recently had our wedding at Crown Lodge and we cannot recommend this venue enough. We had the most amazing day, everything ran so perfectly and it was truly the day of our dreams. Stephanie, Kylie and the rest of the amazing team are simply lovely, ensuring your day just flows without a hitch. The natural beauty of this venue is what makes it so special, the surrounding views of the Wye Downs make for stunning photos. We were able to have exactly the day we wanted; fish and chips, pimms, signature cocktails, space hoppers and bubble wands! Nothing is too much trouble and the entire process was stress free thanks to the amazing team. If you are looking for a wedding venue with a difference, this is the place for you! Thank you Crown Lodge xx

Excellent venue and supportive

We can't praise Crown Lodge enough. We married in August 2021 following an August 2020 postponement. The team were wonderful and supportive throughout the difficult process of postponing etc
Our day was SO worth the wait and Crown Lodge made sure everything went perfectly with excellent attention to detail.
The venue is beautiful, we loved marrying in the outdoor wooded area and our photos from the downs are beautiful! So many guests commented on the uniqueness and lovely venue! We couldn't of chosen anywhere better

Annabel and Ty’s Wedding 12/2/24

Crown Lodge is in a stunning rural location with amazing views. The Lodge itself is rustic, cozy and charming. This part sells itself, however the level of care and attention we received throughout the planning process through to the day itself was just incredible. Kylie and her team cannot get enough credit for making our special day perfect, they are all so lovely, and we wouldn’t change anything, so happy we chose this venue.

Amazing Venue

We couldn’t fault the venue itself. It was laid back, intimate and open. Such good use of the space and allows everyone to be social. The views and photos from our day were everything we could have wanted. Memories to last a life time. We had the most amazing day.
