I have had the pleasure of photographing weddings at Winters Barn in Canterbury, Kent on many occasions, and I’m proud to be the venue’s recommended wedding photographer. This is one of the most enjoyable locations to photograph weddings in Kent and I would recommend it to any couples searching for the perfect location for their special day.
Where is Winters Barn?
Winters Barn is found in the heart of the countryside outside of Canterbury. It is located close to both London and the South Coast, making it convenient for transport. However, the venue makes you feel a million miles from the hustle and bustle of the city. Instead, you can enjoy the most romantic day of your life in classic picturesque surroundings.
On-site salon for bridal preparations
The Winters Barn is licensed for civil ceremonies, and so many couples choose to base their entire day at this beautiful location. Preparation for the service can be stressful at the best of times, but an on-site bridal dressing room complete with salon facilities can help when it comes to hair styling, makeup, and making sure the bride’s outfit is perfect.
Three separate barns
Winters Barn actually features three separate barns, each with a different purpose and overall look (making for a varied experience and plenty of different photographs for your wedding day). The Ceremony Barn holds up to 150 people and can be dressed in line with your wedding colour scheme or other requirements.
In the dryer and warmer months, you may choose to hold your civil ceremony in the venue’s outdoor Cart Barn instead. This fully licensed barn lets you tie the knot in the great outdoors – something that can be hard to come by in many wedding venues in Kent. The intricately designed outdoor wedding arch also offers a perfect opportunity for a memorable photograph of your big day.
Wherever you hold your ceremony, or even if you get married in one of the many nearby churches, your party can then move on to the reception barn to continue the festivities. The reception barn holds up to 200 people – so it has plenty of room for food, a DJ booth, dance floor and plenty of room for tables and chairs. There’s also lots of room for a wedding photographer to move around and capture all of the enjoyment!
Winters Barn is located on beautiful grounds just outside of Canterbury, making it a pleasure for wedding photographers to work at. The outdoor landscaped garden area, which features a large pond and plenty of floral displays, is an ideal spot for a group photograph of all the guests. This is the one that would be difficult to recreate at most other wedding venues in Kent, regardless of the skills of the wedding photographer! With the same high level of quality both indoors and outdoors, this means that Winter Barn is an ideal wedding venue for all times of year.
