A day to remember
By Zoe Marshall, on 13 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Jun 2018
We wanted a chilled, informal wedding for about 60 guests and The Bull was our first and only choice.
We finished off the preparations for the buttery in the morning and then myself and my bridesmaids got ready in the bridal suite, while Elaine and Leigh Anne organised the final details and timings, the guests, the flowers and the registrar. They even organised sun!
We had a 4pm ceremony that meant we could go straight into photos and then the smokehouse bbq which was a huge hit with our guests. We then had a few informal speeches and went into our first dance and disco.
We all had a fantastic day and were supported and guided throughout by Elaine and Leigh Anne. We also had an open bar and a late bar!!!
A few of us also stayed in the hotel and all loved the uniqueness of each room.
We have some amazing memories and photos to remind us of a perfect day.
Best day of our lives!

From the first moment we laid eyes on the Buttery at the Bull Hotel we knew it was for us. The charm of the old building, not to big and overwhelming but beautiful and unique with bags of character.
Once we met the friendly staff and learnt that all our wishes could be met and tailored too we booked it the same day.
Contact was a plenty and nothing was too much trouble.
Our day went so fast but we wouldn’t change a thing.
I promise you put your faith in the team at the Bull Hotel and let your dreams come true!
Perfect Venue for a Kent Wedding
By Laura Mould, on 13 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Feb 2018
We held our wedding at the Bull on February this year and cannot thank them enough for making sure everything ran smoothly and just how we had planned it. The food was amazing, I don't think I have ever tasted a wedding meal like it, The wedding planners have endless patience with what ever request or question you have and the Buttery looked amazing for the ceremony and our perfect special day.
A wedding in January .....

We got married at The Bull on January 20th 2018 . From when we booked the wedding the previous April Leighanne and Elaine were so helpful and attentive and helped us plan our day to make it as special as it was . The food was beyond amazing , the buttery had a warm and cozy ambience and all the staff were so friendly and cheerful. For an intimate wedding , I would recommend The Bull .
Our wedding experience at the The Bull Hotel
By Michael and Sarah Tammadge, on 27 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2017
Our wedding experience at the The Bull Hotel was truly magical. Michael and I met on match.com in May 2014. As Michael so eloquently put in his speech "lucky for Sarah she lived within my 5 miles maximum radius or we would not be celebrating here today". After almost 2 years Michael proposed on December 6th with a beautiful engagement ring inside my advent calendar. A day I will never forget. We booked our wedding date with The Bull later that month. We had such a warm reception from The Bull staff at each meeting - from our first viewing to sleepy thank yous the day after the wedding. We used some companies recommended by The Bull for the wedding essentials (e.g. Esta's Chair Covers) and sourced others (e.g. Ab Fab London Events, Adele Hudgell Floristry, IMMI Photography, Ceilidh Tree and Ruby Velvet Artistry). Thankfully Leigh-Anne and Elaine were able to work so well with every company. We wanted our day to have some fairly unique elements with lots of personal touches - Leigh-Anne, Elaine and their team enabled this vision to become a reality. One of the main reasons that we chose The Bull was the food. Every person that we have spoken to since the wedding has commented on the superb quality of the food and the generous portion sizes. The guests with more specific dietary requirements we catered for beautifully. We had all 11 rooms the night of the wedding. We found the rooms to be spacious and comfortable. The truly amazing thing about the day was the amount of work that went on behind the scenes that we know was crucial to the day's success. We would just like to say a millions thank yous to all at The Bull. We cannot wait to return!

The team at The Bull were just brilliant. From the moment we walked in to meet them 18 months ago to the morning after our Wedding. Hannah, Leigh Anne & Elaine were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble. The venue, staff, food and day were perfect, we wanted for nothing, and I would highly recommend you book immediately. The Buttery looked just as it was pictured in our minds and how the ladies were able to take these ideas from our ramblings and numerous emails and put it to place for our special day was amazing.
Our Perfect Day
By Jim and Jo Green, on 21 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2017
Jim and I met in 2003 and 14 years later we married! To say we like to take easy is an understatement!
Once we decided on this, the next decision to make was where to do the do!
On one regular Saturday evening Jim and I went for dinner at our wonderfully warm, friendly and Local Hotel, The Bull at Wrotham and right there out of the blue Jim asked me to marry him. After saying "what?' and "why?", I then said "Yes".
It would seem to be the natural progression to get married at that very same venue, and oh Lordy are we glad we did.
As we had been together for so long , we wanted a relaxed and laid back affair with as little pomp and ceremony as possible- and thats exactly what we got.
Our day really couldn't have been better - the staff made it so easy for us to just sit back and enjoy the day.
Elaine and all the team at The Bull could not have done more to ensure that our day was as special and as memorable as could possibly be.
We had friends and family telling us all day that this was the best wedding they had ever been to- including their own family weddings! Compliments indeed!
The food was amazing, the atmosphere was great, the staff were friendly, engaging, fun and very professional.
We have no hesitation in recommending The Bull Hotel for the perfect wedding day!

We got married on 1st September 2017 and we are so glad we chose The Bull Hotel. Right from our first visit to meet up with a Hannah she was so friendly and made us feel welcome as did all of the staff. We decided there and then that this was the venue for us.
We met up with Hannah and Leigh Anne before our big day to discuss the finer details and we were made to feel at ease every step of the way.
On our wedding day we were both overwhelmed at how smoothly everything went, it was just perfect and all of our guests were impressed with the venue and how pretty it was. We would highly recommend having a marquee as it added that extra special touch.
We would highly recommend The Bull Hotel.
Intimate wedding of our dreams
By Erin and David Kidd, on 28 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Aug 2017
We fell in love with The Bull Hotel the minute we walked into The Buttery with its wooden flooring and beams. The size of the venue meant that it was perfect for us and made the wedding intimate. We loved that we could use the veranda outside The Buttery for our best man to perform an acoustic set and for us to have a hand fasting ceremony. Leigh-Anne and the rest of the team at The Bull Hotel were so helpful, making sure that the run up to the wedding and the day itself ran smoothly. All of our guests commented on how tasty the food was, with some returning to the venue since for dinner! We also liked that as we booked out all of the bedrooms at the venue, we were able to have breakfast with our family the following morning. All of this was amazing but the biggest bonus for us was that we were able to make the entire wedding 'us', with a DIY photo booth, playlists and themed handmade decorations and flowers throughout the venue.
