Fun in the sun

Fun in the sun

Q. We're keen to have our wedding at a fixed venue but would like to spend as much time in the open air as possible. What can you recommend?

A. Leah Moulange says: On your venue hunt, you'll be looking for a location with as much outdoor space as possible. For example, here at The Spa Hotel, we're surrounded by 14 acres of beautifully manicured gardens, and you can say “I do” at the stunning Spa Temple.

You can make the most of the great outdoors in a number of ways. Enjoy your drinks reception and canapés on the outdoor terrace, mingle with your guests in the sunshine and even enjoy live music, dancing and lawn games. All this before having those all-important photos taken in front of some stunning backdrops around the gardens. There's also the option to serve your evening catering al fresco, at The Spa, we offer an outdoor pizza oven.

It's easy to see why you're looking to spend time outdoors, as the Kent countryside offers a spectacular setting. And with your venue's wedding coordinators on hand to make sure everything is running smoothly, you won't have a thing to worry about. What's more, you'll have somewhere to retreat to if the weather takes a turn for the worst.
