If you’re recently engaged and looking to tie the knot then meet the experts at local wedding venue One Warwick Park Hotel, who have just claimed the title of ‘Boutique Venue of the Year’ at the prestigious Kent Wedding Awards


Ideal for charity galas, lavish award ceremonies and the most stylish of weddings, the luxurious One Warwick Park Hotel sets quite the stage for an unforgettable celebration and last month scooped a top industry award.

Standing proud on the corner of Chapel Place, a stone’s throw from the famous Pantiles, the four-star hotel was shortlisted among seven other well-established venues across Kent, including The Barn in Royal Tunbridge Wells and The Bull Hotel in Sevenoaks.

The events team at One Warwick Park Hotel were independently judged by a panel of wedding experts and crowned ‘Boutique Venue of the Year’ on November 16 at the Mercure Hotel in Maidstone.

Judges noted that One Warwick Park Hotel helps couples build an unforgettable and intimate day ‘all wrapped in beautiful surroundings with wonderful wedding space and great testimonials.’

Event Manager Karen Emberson told SO magazine: “We are absolutely thrilled to win the award. Our committed and passionate team pour their heart and soul into making each wedding at One Warwick Park Hotel unique and very special.”

She commented: “Seeing our collective hard work and dedication recognised by this award is a testament to the high standards and quality of service we always strive to achieve.”

The Kent Wedding Awards recognise the best in the industry across Kent which is one of the country’s most popular destinations for couples looking to tie the knot.

According to UK Weddings, there are approximately 278,599 nuptials that take place every year in Britain – with 41,273 happening in the South East. This year, One Warwick Park Hotel will host over 35 weddings in their beautiful Function Room – a modern, luxurious space and the perfect blank canvas for those who want to stamp their personality on such a special day.

Having undergone an extensive refurbishment in 2016, the Function Room combines modern interiors with original character.

With its bare brick walls, exposed timber beams and double-height vaulted ceilings, this venue is a sensationally stylish spot to tie the knot. Thanks to the 15-foot arched windows, the space is filled with natural light which seamlessly transitions from day to night with the addition of twinkling fairy lights.

Selecting your wedding theme will undoubtedly be a delightful challenge too. The Function Room, with its simple yet elegant modern touches, offers an ideal backdrop for a variety of celebration styles.

Whether you picture an intimate, traditional gathering or a more elaborate, boho-inspired wedding, the pristine white walls and connecting marble bar establish a stylish setting while offering extra space for larger parties.

Up to 180 guests can dance the night away in the Function Room, with the choice to extend the celebration into the late hours available through an upgrade to a late license. This is just one of the personalised choices offered when you choose One Warwick Park Hotel for your wedding.

“The wedding landscape is changing,” Karen revealed. “And with couples steering away from tradition more than ever, flexibility is key.”

One Warwick Park Hotel has bucked the norm, avoiding rigid packages that leave no room for freedom and instead plan weddings that solely focus on the dreams and desires of its couples.

“By listening to our guests’ thoughts and addressing their desires, our team can navigate through our options, tailoring elements and details no matter how small to help create their dream wedding – we work around our guests, so they don’t have to compromise,” Karen added.
