Outstanding Venue!

This venue was simply outstanding!

The food was amazing, and there was plenty of it. Great value for money as well.
The coordinators on the day and in the run up were super helpful and made everything run smoothly. We were as relaxed as we possibly could have been on the day and that was thanks to the team.
The grounds are lovely and made for some great photos. Bar service was great on the day as well and the guests were kept happy all day.

Would highly recommend!

Incredible!

We got married at Salomons Estate in June 2023 and it was incredible! We literally have zero negatives to write. Everything from Fiona and her team was brilliant. The care and attention to detail, the day went smoothly and perfect.
All of our guests commented on how delicious the canapés and food were.
We will 10000% be returning for our anniversary.
Thank you everyone at Salomons for ensuring we had the most perfect day.

The perfect wedding venue!

Where do I even begin with Salomons Estate? The most beautiful wedding venue with stunning grounds, great food and perfect entertainment spaces! From the moment we first contacted them to the days after our wedding the events team (Erin in particular) were incredible - they paid attention to every small detail and exceeded every expectation we had for our big day. We couldn’t recommend them more!

Perfect day and service

Our day was exactly what we had asked for. The rooms and ceremony were set up beautifully and we literally had the whole hotel to ourselves and guests all day. Great value, stunning views for photos, delicious food and all the staff from our coordinator Lauren to the reception and serving staff were amazing.

What a great venue for a wedding!

Salomons made our wedding in to something out of a Disney movie. 100% recommend the venue they supported us with everything we needed and even through the pandemic they supported use with moving dates with no fuss or stress.

From looking around to the day itself the team were so friendly and answered any questions we had as soon as possible and made us feel like they actually cared.

The day itself was perfect and it was all down the the team working hard so we didn’t need to worry. On arrive the front of house manager welcomed us and made us feel very welcome and even said this is your house for the days which really put me at ease. The event team made sure we was all ok from start to finish and the rooms looked amazing. It was great to have different parts of our wedding in different parts of the venue as it made really interesting for our guests.

The food was outstanding and there was so much of it. No one was going away hungry at all.

We would highly recommend Salomons as a wedding venue. We got some amazing comments from our guests on how amazing the day was and how great the staff, venue and food was. If you are looking for somewhere great for your wedding this look no further.

We would like to thank Salmons and specially Fiona for such a brilliant day!

Salomons Estate review

We had the most wonderful wedding day and Salomons were incredible. We'd gone through every detail before the wedding and on the day we didn't have to think about a single thing. The staff were all amazing, food was delicious and the venue stunning, and I can't recommend enough as a wedding venue!

Absolutely perfect venue.

I cannot recommend getting married at Salomons Estate enough.

The whole team are amazing to work with and when first visiting I felt so relaxed and at ease in their company - a lot of other venues felt very pushy in comparison looking back.

We absolutely loved that they had so many options in regards to food and drinks packages. We went for their bbq option which was perfect as we didn’t want a 3 course sit down, we wanted something a bit more relaxed. The food was delicious and everyone said they felt really full compared to some other weddings they’d been to!

The grounds themselves are stunning. We were so fortunate that we got married on the terrace, but the back up room inside was also beautiful if the weather hadn’t been on our side! We had our reception in the science theatre that is such a unique room and so beautiful.

Our wedding parties stayed the night before in the gatehouse and the bridal cottage, most of our wedding party also stayed the evening of the wedding in the hotel accommodation. This really extended our wedding celebration and I’m so grateful we could all stay on site in lovely accommodation.

I could go on and on for hours, but to summarise; the venue is not only stunning but is matched in amazing service.

Beautiful venue

Salomons was a beautiful location for a wedding! We had a winter wedding and chose it because we liked the indoor setup for our wedding for approximately 100 people, and also wanted on site accommodation. However, the grounds are beautiful and we got lucky with the weather and have had many pretty shots taken outside.

The events team helped us pull together our wedding plan and ensured matters ran smoothly on the day. We had a great time with the tasting in the lead up to our wedding. We also used a number of the recommended suppliers from Salomons and together they put together a truly amazing wedding. Erin helped coordinate our day and also chaueffered us around for our photos as the grounds were a bit wet!

The catering team did a top job on the day. Our guests were raving about how good the food was, and how generous the portions were too! Salomons offered a good selection of wines and their F&B team were flexible to try to source drinks that weren't readily available on the menu. If needed, we were able to supply our own bottles and pay corkage.

My father has some health issues, and the team did everything they could to make his experience on the day as comfortable as possible. I'm really grateful to Salomons for this.

In summary, I'd highly recommend Salomons Estate as a venue for anyone considering a wedding venue in Kent.

Incredible wedding day

We knew instantly when we arrived to view the venue that this was where we wanted to get married. We were made to feel at home, and nothing felt like too much bother. The team were constantly on-hand to answer questions throughout the process, and catered to all of our requests. We had never really thought about an outside wedding, but the South Terrace took our breath away when we saw it in person!
Our wedding day was magical, and ran completely smoothly due to the hard work of the team throughout the day. Our guests commented on the service of the team - there was never a queue at the bar, there was always someone on-hand to help out, and our wedding planner (Fiona) had this magic ability of being everywhere at once! The food was outstanding, and our guests were well-fed and watered during the day. We honestly couldn’t have asked for more from the team!

Perfect from start to finish

We had our wedding here in April 2023 and everything was perfect. All credit goes to Fiona, our main point of contact, as she was simply incredible in ensuring the smooth running of the day as well as the preparations leading up.
While I could wax lyrical about the venue, I want to mention especially a couple things:
- We stayed in one of the newly built cottages the evening of the wedding and it was gorgeous. The room could use a few rugs as the rustic aesthetic can be chilly, but the space you get for the price you pay is significantly better value than anything else in the entire area. When we return for an anniversary we will definitely book one of these again.
- The food was divine. Breakfast had vegetarian options for us on request which is a big bonus, but the chef for our wedding meal was also very inventive with ensuring we had delicious food to match a range of dietary requirements. The portions were very generous.
- The staff are the highlight though. From moment one (showing up randomly on a Saturday with no warning and requesting a tour) we were shown kindness and enthusiasm for their venue. I also spoke with some of the cleaning staff the next morning and they were incredibly helpful with finding things I had misplaced. I've never stayed anywhere before where every single person is delightful, and I am grateful for the hard work they all put in.
Thank you so much for all your efforts. They paid off spectacularly and we will never forget how perfect you made the entire planning and wedding journey.
Everything was wonderful.

Wonderful wedding venue

My new husband and I would like to thank All the staff at Salomons Estate for making our wedding day so wonderful. We had our wedding and reception at Salomons on the 7th August, It is such a beautiful venue and the staff are very attentive and accommodated our every request. They set out all of our centrepieces and our wedding coordinator Fiona was brilliant and even made some table numbers to match our theme as I had left them at home! They made sure everything was how we wanted and the communication between us from day one was fantastic. They even arranged for a golf buggy to transport our less able guests from the accommodation and back when they required it. I got ready with my bridal party In the cottage which was lovely and Fiona had arranged a delicious breakfast to be delivered to us so I didn’t need to worry about anything but getting myself ready, things just ran so smoothly and I didn’t have anything at all to worry about. We had our ceremony outside on the terrace, the weather was beautiful and the scenery was stunning. We chose the sharing carvery for our wedding breakfast and our guests really enjoyed nominating someone from each table to be the chef and carve the meat. All the food was delicious and Salomons catered very well to all our guests with special dietary requirements, serving staff even listened and took orders from some of the children who were being a bit fussy! We couldn’t of wished for a better day and a lot of our guests commented on how lovely it was too. Thank you so much! We will definitely be returning to visit again soon.

Amazing wedding venue - what a perfect day!

My husband and I got married at Salomons in May 2022, and we couldn’t recommend the venue enough. It’s a stunning setting with lots of options for different size weddings. The canapés and wedding breakfast were delicious, and our guests have all commented on how great the food was! The process was seamless from start to finish - the staff were helpful and friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. Lauren was our wedding host and was incredible - we had a thousand questions on the lead up and nothing was too much. She responded quickly and put our minds at ease with everything we didn’t know. Neither my husband or I had to lift a finger all day, and there was no worry about if things would be right - we were confident that it would be! The day was absolutely perfect - the best day of our lives, and this was thanks to Lauren and the team!
