SALOMONS Estate has won first place in the ‘Heritage Venue’ category of the Kent Wedding Awards, signalling a return of demand to the sector after the economic shocks of the pandemic.
Now in its 10th year, the Kent Wedding Awards recognise the best wedding professionals and services in the county.
The win follows two of the most difficult years for the wedding sector, which faced lockdowns and other Covid restrictions, but now the venue says things are ‘roaring back’.
Salomons’ Events Manager Fiona Owens said: “The award is a testament to our dedicated team, and we couldn’t have done it without the support of our amazing wedding couples that pick us as their wedding venue.”
She added: “We were up against some of the most historic venues in Kent, so to be crowned winner is something we are all very proud of.”
It was the estate’s second win, after the events team won the ‘Best Events Team’ award last year.
Salomons Estate has been a landmark heritage site in Tunbridge Wells for over 190 years. The Grade II-listed building, with its 36 acres of gardens, is operated by Elite Leisure Collection, which owns One Media, publisher of the Times.
