Planning SOS: The ceremony

We chatted to Celebrant Alex Hilder about planning the perfect wedding ceremony. We're engaged! Now what?

Enjoy that newly engaged bubble. Then, when you start thinking about the planning process, remember to take some with the deep stuff. Spend some time thinking about why it is that you've taken the plunge and decided to get married. Think about what it is about your relationship that makes you want to share it with the world. There's nowhere near the social pressure to get married that there once was, so spend some time understanding your 'why.' From here, the rest will flow easily: how you want to feel, how you want your guests to feel, where you'd like to be, what vibe you want to create, who you want to play a part... So, when you get to the next step of exploring the amazing range of talented suppliers that we have in Kent, it'll make it much simpler to find the ones you really gel with.

At the time it allowed Covid-secure weddings to go ahead, however, the move was so widely received that from April it will be a permanent change.

Newly-licensed Kent venue Fort Burgoyne is now welcoming wedding bookings. It's an announcement that comes right on time for many couples who've experienced long delays and cancellations due to Covid. The venue will be working with venue stylists Diamond Circle Weddings to offer bespoke ceremonies and receptions to couples waiting to walk down the aisle.

The historical Fort dates back to the 1860s, when it was built to protect Dover Castle. Although it has been refurbished since then, the imposing facade, abundant space and hidden tunnels make it a truly impressive spot if you're looking for a location with character for your big day. It offers a choice of several spaces to tie the knot with options to say "I do" inside in the ceremony room, or al fresco overlooking Dover Castle in the Shooting Gallery or on the Parade Ground.

Each wedding can be tailored to your individual wants, needs and dreams and, depending on the style you're looking for, you can enjoy anything from a luxury afternoon tea as part of a large celebration or an intimate ceremony overlooking the grounds.
