Hever Castle is a gem in the heart of the Garden of England. The double-moated Castle is shrouded in a glorious creeping Boston ivy, which turns a rich, deep red during late Autumn, and the Medieval gatehouse still retains a working drawbridge and portcullis making for iconic photographs.

Three areas are available for your "I dos." The Castle Inner Hall can accommodate 60 nearest and dearest. The ornate panelled walls, antiques and open log fire lend themselves beautifully to a winter wonderland wedding.

Searches for "pets at weddings" are up 200 per cent since 2020 proving couples are increasingly looking to give their furry friends a starring role in their special day.

"For some, it's non-neogtiable. Many couples we speak to book with us on the basis that their dog can be present for the 'I dos,' photos and drinks reception," says commercial sales manager Courtney Smith. From delightful miniature outfits to adorable photography, Salomons Estate, which took first place in the Best Events Team category at the Kent Wedding Awards 21/22, has seen loved-up pet owners making their furry friend a ring bearer, flowergirl or groomsman.

The Rochester Corn Exchange is a luxurious and imposing Grade I listed building

This luxurious and imposing Grade I listed building was constructed in 1706 by the rather splendidly named Admiral Sir Cloudsley Shovel, whose coat of arms can be found above the High Street entrance. It has enjoyed a varied history as a butchers market, a courtroom, a concert hall and a cinema. For the past 100 years it has functioned as Rochester's premier venue for parties, events and weddings offering you the flexibility to enjoy the day of your dreams in a historical setting.

Located just off the beautifully preserved Victorian High Street, famous for its connections with Charles Dickens, the venue is close to the cobbled Boley Hill that links the High Street through an ancient gateway to the moat of Rochester Castle and Gardens on your right, and to the left Rochester Cathedral.
