The best wedding day!

Kent Life was everything we wanted for our wedding. We hired the pink chapel which was well worth the extra cost and we have had a few guests say it was the best wedding they have been to! A lot of guests also commented on how unusual the venue was and how much they loved it. Belle was amazing from the beginning, always answered any questions we had (no matter how silly) and made sure the day ran smoothly. The day flowed so well and felt relaxed with no issues. The food was also delicious! We highly recommend Kent Life!

Perfect day!

We had the most beautiful day! Belle was amazing and everything ran so smoothly. We didn't have to worry about a thing. This venue is just so wonderful and you have everything you need. We had quite a few children attending and this was the perfect place for them and all the adults loved it too.
I highly recommend doing a meet and greet with the animals.

Thank you Belle and Kent Life for making our day so wonderful.

Amazing wedding venue

We couldn’t recommend Kent life more! Belle was an amazing organiser for Kent, answering any email I sent and helping us in anyway she possibly could! The venue has 3 areas for the 3 parts of your wedding if you pay extra for the chapel which we recommend! The guests loved this quirky venue and had so much fun seeing the animals! Food was amazing!!!
We were told a few things at the beginning and in meetings which didn’t happen like our guests getting to travel on the tractor, a personal cocktail and we had an issue with our cake not being covered over night. But we still see this as the best day ever and think if you double check these things on the day then they will do their best to help. 10/10!

Our Perfect Day

We got married here on September 17th 2022. We wanted our day to be unique and it was more than we could have hoped for! From start to finish nothing was too much trouble, our guests absolutely loved the quaintness of the little pink chapel and all of it’s surroundings. We got to play tug of war and partied all night in the village hall. We honestly picked the perfect venue for our special day. Huge thanks to the amazing team at Kent Life xx

Quirky and Magical Wedding Day

In 2015 we attended a wedding event at the Museum of Kent Life, where we were introduced to Claire and Jo. From the moment we met the two lovely ladies we decided that this was the place we wanted to get married. The whole wedding journey was an absolute joy and there was not one point where either us felt overwhelmed, stressed or confused with the planning and preparations. With there being two brides, we seemed to have double the amount of questions in comparison to other couples, often sending weekly emails seeking clarification, or asking questions. But this never appeared to frustrate the amazing team. The responses we received as well as the consistent communication we experienced, cannot be faulted. We were fortunate enough to work with all members of the Zest team. We started planning the wedding with the incredibly calm and thoughtful Claire, who then handed over to Grace who ensured we had the smoothest day imaginable, and this was complemented by Jo who ensured the subtle yet vital touches occurred throughout the day. Each member of the team had different qualities that they used when working with us, and we feel that they individually helped to shape our wonderful wedding day. On the day the catering and bar staff were remarkable and did not stop working, the food was exquisite and the hospitality faultless. Since the wedding, numerous guests have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and a huge part of that is due to the venue, but more than this, it is thanks to the spectacular team who played such an important, yet discrete role in our wedding. We would highly recommend this venue to all couples who are looking for a quirky, yet magical wedding day to remember.

Most Amazing Day - Loved by everyone

We fell in love with Kent Life the first time we looked around in October 2014. It was a little bit stressful in the beginning as Kent Life was going through a tender process so we had a little wait to find out how that all went and what the rates for the weddings would be. We also had a few lack of communication issues with Zest who run the weddings but when Claire took over as our wedding coordinator we couldn't have been happier. She is great at responding to any queries and happy to help with whatever we asked, no matter how big or small. She made sure our day ran smoothly (despite a couple of hiccups out of all our control) and we had the most amazing, fun, chilled day, so much so I want to do it all again!
The venue itself is amazing, if you want a chilled out, fun atmosphere with that vintage feel Kent Life is the place. We didn't have many children at our wedding but that didn't matter, the adults loved it! We can't thank Claire and everyone that contributed to our day enough and I wouldn't recommend Kent Life as a venue to any bride and groom. Thank you!

Magical!

From the moment we had our first show round with Kerrie we knew this was the place we needed to get married! It was so different to the other places we had seen and felt so homely! It was so great how much we could personalise and add our own touches to the venue. We were married in the Chapel which is so beautiful and dinner in the Wagon Store with the hops is just lovely - and everyone loved the food! The Village Hall for dancing later on was perfect! Kerrie was amazing throughout the process answering all our questions, she is someone you can instantly trust to know everything will go smoothly! We were also lucky enough to have Claire look after us too! She also ensured everything went perfect and was a life saver when my veil started to fall off as I was about to walk down the aisle, phew!! We can't thank Kerrie, Claire and their team for giving us the most magical day! xxx

Perfect wedding day

Everything from start to finish was perfect. Everything had been well taken care of in advance that the day went without a hitch. Kerrie as ever was so helpful and in control I didn't need to worry about a thing. The venue was lovely, the food delicious, I really couldn't have asked for a better day!

Amazing day!

We had our wedding at Kent Life in May. From start to Finish the support from Kerrie was amazing and nothing was ever an issue!
The venue itself was perfect and all of our guests commented on what a beautiful place. We got married at Arch bishops Palace and then took a boat down the river to Kent Life where we all took a tractor ride up to the venue. I loved that we could decorate the venue ourselves and put our own special touches in. Plenty of gorgeous pictures opportunities, food was Amazing and plenty for everyone of all ages to do and enjoy.
I would defiantly recommend for your big day... We had the best day of our lives and want to do it all over again, made even more special by the help of Kerrie and her team. X

Incredible Wedding Experience

We had to leave a review of our incredible wedding held at Kent Life in April 2016. From show around until the day after the whole process was flawless. Communication with Kerrie, the wedding co-ordinator, was first class and nothing was too much trouble. Having her on the day was like a having a friend look after the biggest day of your life. The venue still has guests talking now as its so quirky and unique and the range of photo opportunities we got were stunning. Even on a grey and drissly day. Dont be concerned about the weather! The food was delicious and there were many special touches- plates, signs etc put on by Kent Life. My tip- pay extra for the pink chapel- its so worth it!!

Amazing wedding at Kent Life

We were looking for a relaxed wedding venue with a country feel and knew from the moment we first arrived that Kent Life was the one. Kerrie, the Wedding Coordinator was very welcoming and supportive through out the planning process. There were no questions left unanswered and no request that seemed too much. We got married on 5th March 2016 in the beautiful vintage Village Hall and had our reception in the Wagon Store nearby, it was the most incredible day! If you are looking for that unique, relaxed wedding then we cannot recommend Kent Life enough!
