Say ‘I do’ with a view at Salomons Estate

SALOMONS Estate, a popular wedding venue in Tunbridge Wells, is responding to the increasing demand for outdoor ceremonies by expanding its array of options for brides and grooms-to-be.

Nestled amongst the rolling countryside in Southborough, the Grade II listed Victorian manor house now offers the opportunity for couples to exchange their vows on the picturesque south-facing lawn, which provides stunning views of the estate’s expansive 36-acre grounds.

With a track record of hosting just under 100 ceremonies, receptions, and civil partnerships each year, the venue has become an award-winning destination for those seeking an unforgettable wedding celebration.

There’s an impressive selection of venues to choose from, catering to a variety of preferences and styles. Inside the manor house, couples have the option to say ‘I do’ in several stunning locations.

The elegant Drawing Room, with its timeless charm, provides an intimate setting for a romantic ceremony, wedding breakfast or evening reception. The lavish Victorian Theatre also offers a grand backdrop for such occasions and is the largest space, catering to 350 guests.

Additionally, the beautifully ornate Gold Room presents far-reaching views of the surrounding gardens, seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor elements with direct access to the terrace for summertime nuptials.

However, it is the newly-expanded garden space that has become a favourite among couples during peak wedding season.

The south-facing lawn, meticulously maintained by the estate’s dedicated groundsmen, offers an idyllic new setting for Salomons’ brides and grooms.

With a capacity to accommodate up to 160 guests, the south-facing lawn provides a wonderful backdrop for exchanging vows under the sun and is surrounded by blooming flowers and rolling views of the countryside. There’s even a lake, providing picture-perfect photo opportunities.

According to Fiona Owens, Events Manager and wedding expert at Salomons Estate, there has been a notable shift in couples’ appreciation for the outdoors.

She explains, “We’ve witnessed a newfound appreciation for the beauty of nature as couples seek venues that provide a picturesque backdrop for their special day.”

“Couples are actively seeking locations that can offer the perfect setting, featuring elements such as water features, wildflowers and woodlands”.

“It’s had an impact on décor trends, too” she continued.

“From moon gates and floral arches to incorporating elements of the wildflowers we have on-site, we’ve noticed our couples align their wedding themes with the natural beauty of Salomons, and it really transforms the grounds into the perfect setting”.
