    Nothing was too much

    We originally were a June 2020 wedding.
    Obviously that was not possible, Kerry and her team kept in contact, reassuring us it would all work out when the time was right. Without us feeling harassed.

    The team helped us have a small ceremony last September 2020, which was lovely. The weather was beautiful and meant a safe outside ceremony.

    We then finally got to celebrate this September 2021. They couldn’t have been more accommodating for us, nothing was any issue.

    The venue is beautiful, all our guests commented on it.

    When we booked our wedding in 2018, we knew this was where we wanted to celebrate, the area is clean and modern, with the romantic touch!

    With the build up Kerry’s team were great, calm and professional. On the day Jason looked after us very well, the weather was a bit temperamental, but Jason very much wanted us to be involved in deciding whether to move inside or not. He really helped make us feel special on our day!

    Thank you all so much. In a time of such uncertainty we’ve still managed to get married and celebrate how we wanted, with amazing memories from both occasions.

    Highly recommend this venue.

    Absolutely Loved It

    We got married here in August and we absolutely loved it. The whole process went so smoothly and the building itself is beautiful. One of the main reasons we were drawn to this place was the food options - we were quite reluctant to have a traditional 3 course sit down meal, however the Darenth offers Afternoon tea, pub meals, 3 course meals and the one we chose which was a sit down BBQ. So many guests complimented the food & said how different and unique it was compared to other weddings they had been to.

    If we could give a higher score we would

    The staff were AMAZING! Nothing was too much trouble, the day ran so smoothly. The food was beautiful, everyone enjoyed our BBQ meal followed by strawberries and cream. The accommodation was beautiful and clean, the nicest bed to sleep in, the shower was divine, nice little touches in the room, like a treat box and bottled water. The bar staff were amazing, there was never a long wait for a drink.
    I would recommend this venue to anyone that was looking for a beautiful and relaxed wedding day. Thanks also to all of the team at The Darenth who ensured that we had the best day EVER!

    All Areas Excellent

    We would like to score all areas as excellent.

    We are so happy that we had our wedding at The Darenth with your team. Everything was smooth, calm and relaxed. The venue looked wonderful and we could not have asked for a better service either on the day or in the build up (from two years in advance!).

    Thanks for making our wedding day so stress free and lovely.
