By Joanne and Andy, on 11 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 22 Dec 2018

We chose The George vaults for our wedding venue , as we knew it would Make the perfect setting for our intimate Christmas wedding . Our wedding planner Carla was fantastic , all my requests & ideas were welcomed and the staff decorated the vaults exactly as I had wanted it .

It is simply beautiful

On choosing our venue, the Vault sold it to us! It's simply beautiful. We only had a small, intimate wedding, and the Vault was the perfect size too. Carla was simply fabulous from beginning to the end and made the whole process very easy. Our guests had a great time reporting that it was one of the best weddings they'd been to - need we say more!

The only venue we viewed!

The Vaults couldn’t of been any more perfect for our wedding! It was the only venue that we viewed and we knew straight away it was perfect for us. All of our guests commented on the venue and how beautiful it was. Carla was amazing and so helpful from the moment I first emailed and enquired about The Vaults right up until the very big day. There is not one bad word I could say about The Vaults and the team. Would highly recommend to anyone that is wanting an intimate and romantic wedding, truly stunning venue! Thank you all so much for your help!

We couldnt have asked for more

By Vicky and Kevin, on 11 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Jun 2018

The first time we visited The George Vaults, we knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding. The vault was very intimate and perfect for the number of guests that attended. We were blessed with glorious weather, so the garden was lovely for our guests to relax in, prior to the ceremony and until we were seated for our meal. All our guests commented that is was one of the best weddings that they had been too. Having Rochester Castle so close by, made it the perfect setting for our photo's. From start to finish, Carla was amazing and her team on the day were very friendly and attentive. The day ran perfectly, we couldn't have asked for more. Thanks again for making our day so special.

Romantic, rustic yet magnificent
Venue Service

By Trudi and Mark, on 11 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 11 Nov 2017

From the first contact to our actual day, the team at George Vaults helped create our perfect day. Our wedding was an intimate family affair, with a warm, loving atmosphere with simple decorations and no dj. The Vault setting is romantic, rustic yet magnificent and created an ambiance like no other. The wedding breakfast package we chose allowed enough choice that it catered for dietary requirements and vegan options. We chose to have giant jenga, donut wedding cakes, candy station and music was piped in from the bar above. The staff were just perfect! The barman also performed slight of hand magic at the bar, which kept plenty of people interested. All 25 of our guests felt happy, full and comfortable in their surroundings and we couldn't have asked for more!

By Ray and Michelle, on 11 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Jul 2017

Carla we would both like to say that you helped the day go perfectly and without your assistance I am sure panic would have set in The advice you gave from start to finish also the hands on being a part of our day helped so much as we had met on several occasions Before the actual day that it felt like a friend was helping out with the bar and food. Talking of food we can truthfully say that it was excellent and served to all with ease we all had a great day with a big thank you to yourself and all the staff

Married in candlelight was a dream!
Venue Service

By Toni and Bruno, on 29 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2017

First of all a massive thank you to Carla for organising our day, it went perfectly thanks to you. I knew the Vaults did great food but both the sit down and buffet surpassed all expectations and was wonderful quality. The venue really is beautiful and magical, everyone commented on how gorgeous it was - picture perfect! I think people should learn to trust in you lol I will definitely look to having future events with you as it was so special. I'm sorry but wasn't impressed with DJ but I know that's separate to you. Overall comments from family and friends was how relaxed, special and beautiful a day they had. We can't thank you enough....feel free to look on my fb for any pics u wanna use but if not I will attach a few to this email. Married in candlelight was a dream!

The best wedding guests have ever been to!
Venue Service

By Nicky and Simon, on 29 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 27 May 2017

So many of our guests hadn't heard of The George Vaults in Rochester but so many of our guests will be returning. Our special day was exceptional. Every attention to detail was made. The venue was intimate and quite amazingly beautiful when bathed in candlelight and echoing to the sound of our guests laughing. The outside space was stunning in it's contemporary simplicity, thankfully giving some shelter from the sunshine by a huge canopy of umbrellas. Our wedding planner Carla, was hugely patient and nothing was too much trouble for her. She was with us from the booking date to the end of the wedding day. Thank you so much. One sneaky bit of advice. The Vaults are not easy to photograph well. Choose Chris Deller an amazing photographer who captured our day perfectly. All of the guests were amazed by the quality and choice of the food offered. We had the gold package and I can only recommend it. Both food and drink were plentiful, beautifully presented and impeccably served not to mention extremely tasty. So many of our guests have said that it was the best wedding that they have ever been to and, although biased, we would have to agree. We wouldn't have changed a thing. We had a total of 36 seated for the wedding breakfast and it was the perfect number. 60 in the evening for dancing and yet more food completed the day. We cannot recommend the venue, the staff and the organisation of the day highly enough.

Can't thank Carla and her team, or The George Vaults enough for our most brilliant wedding in April! Carla listened to our wants and needs, and was able to accommodate and work with us so we were able to have just what we wanted. It was very affordable which is always a bonus! We were even able to have Rock Choir, who I sing with, perform on the day and have a rehursals the day before! The food was lovely, especially the sticky toffee pudding, and no end of compliments have been had. The evening buffet was plentiful! The Vault itself was a beauty, and was just how we wanted it, colourful, romantic, mysterious, candle lit and just a bit different! Having the use of so much space in The Vaults ensured that the whole day went smoothly and seamlessly, with everything taken care of. We've been told by many that it was the best wedding they had been to, and we have to agree! We seriously want someone else we know to get married there so we can experience it from the other side!! BEST WEDDING EVER!
