Best Kent wedding venues: The old kent barn
Five reasons why this rustic barn is one of the best wedding venues in Kent (and UK).
1. The Family Feel
The Old Kent Barn is one of our favourite venues in Kent to work with, we love creating wedding films there. The founding family (Will, Claire & Claire’s parents) have put so much love and hard work into making their barn the perfect venue for countryside weddings in Kent. Their hand picked team are equally passionate about making each of the 700+ weddings they’ve held, the best day ever.
2. The Award Winning Organisation
The Old Kent Barn are renowned for their time-keeping and organisation, in fact, their staff are so organised and welcoming, they won the Kent Wedding Awards Event Team of the Year 2020 (among other awards!).
3. The Outdoor Ceremony
This beautiful Kent wedding venue boasts gorgeous gardens for outdoor ceremonies in the Spring & Summer months. The grounds are so tranquil and picturesque, it gives the best countryside wedding vibes.
4. The Beautiful Barn Interior
Voted Best Barn Wedding Venue in the British Wedding Awards 2019, both ceremonies and receptions can be held in their beautiful contemporary oak framed barn.
5. Gorgeous styling all seasons.
The Old Kent Barn is a stunning wedding venue; in the summer, the winter and everything in between. The grounds have lots of romantic spots to capture beautiful moments together. This gorgeous wedding venue makes for a superb day and wedding film, it’s our pleasure to film there.
Imagine being in your wedding dress or wedding suit and it’s 38.7C… in the UK?! When you plan a summer wedding, you’re probably wanting to take advantage of the sunshine, preferably wanting an outdoor ceremony. But if you’re planning your wedding in the UK, you probably won’t have planned for nearly 40C temperatures!
We filmed Holly & Aaran’s wedding at The Old Kent Barn on the hottest day ever recorded thus far in the UK on 25th June 2019. The sun stayed shining all through their outdoor ceremony, and just as the guests came inside for the next part of the celebrations the heavens opened, to an enormous storm!
Nonetheless, the staff at The Old Kent Barn were incredible (as per usual!). The Old Kent Barn is known as one of the best wedding venues in Kent and in the South East of England. They are renowned for their award winning countryside weddings, and it’s our absolute pleasure to film there.
Whilst the weather was unexpected, it didn’t fluster the bride and groom. Holly and Aaran had a wonderful wedding day, and went with the flow. We created a memorable wedding film for them to enjoy forever more, even if the weather looks like it might have been filmed across two different days!
At the Old Kent Barn we’ve worked alongside Chris from Chris Deller Photography. Who we would highly recommend, he has a real creative eye and captures some incredible shots!
