NEW VENUE ALERT! Introducing The Moody Mare

Here at Your Kent Wedding, we're always excited to learn of a new wedding venue. So, when we got wind that The Moody Mare was about to throw open it's doors to intimate and chilled-out weddings we were there, wanting to know more...

Bride and broom underneath balloons The Moody Mare is an 18th-century pub nestled on the edge of Mereworth woods. The pub is renowned for its beautiful, quaint, idyllic location, boasting both unusual and beautiful features; this venue is a place where enchanting ambience meets a foodie's perfect adventure.

The tipis set within the grounds are dressed with rustic wooden chandeliers and one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture for a burst of character. Stylishly presented with warm tones, there's a private bar to pick up a Pimms or hot chocolate, depending on the weather! The three tipis can all be adorned in your own personal touches and the venue's wedding planner can help create a space that exceeds all of your expectations. Go as far as your imagination will take you.

Make your way through its wooden doors and into the cosy fire-lit barn with exposed floors and beams with plenty of original features. It's quirkiness and originality make for a memorable spot to say "I do." It can host 50 of your nearest and dearest for a celebrant-led ceremony, with capacity for 75 for the reception. The tipis can also accommodate celebrant-led ceremonies, and can hold 100. Then, when the partying begins the space will hold up to 150.

At the moment, the venue is happy to host fabulous micro weddings for 15 guests. Both the Garden Room and the tips are perfect for such an occasion and will be set up beautifully to create an intimate space that feels suitably special for your big day.

Photographer Sarah Hunt of Strawberry Photography and Ami Holt of Pinnable Parties have coordinated two wonderful shoots, one with a daytime festival vibe, the other with an evening boho feel, to showcase the new venue and show you just how fabulous it can be when it comes to hosting your big day. We hope you enjoy the resulting images.
