Ripley Arts Centre is a delightful Victorian property, built in 1899 and enhanced in later years with the addition of Georgian features. With bags of charm and elegant styling, this is the perfect wedding venue for couples looking to marry in a unique and historic setting in Kent.
The design of the elegant Music Room, where the ceremony will be conducted, is based upon a similar room at Hampton Court Palace. The characterful room can accommodate up to 76 for the ceremony. A Blüthner grand piano is available for professional use, or maybe you would like to hire a string quartet to encapsulate that 'period feel'.
Adjacent to the Music room are the extensive gardens of Ripley. Perhaps the most stunning feature of this scene is the magnificent willow tree which provides the perfect backdrop and romantic setting for photographs. The grounds are further enhanced by a Sensory garden and illuminated fountain. You can allow your guests to explore the stunning surroundings and even host your reception drinks here in the summer months.
The building is available for the ceremony or reception or both. We are also able to recommend a variety of catering services to suit your requirements. Depending on your party size, we can host a formal sit-down meal or buffet style reception.
