We love nothing more than being able to work with gorgeous venues and local wedding suppliers so when we got a message from the wonderful Kylie at The Old Kent Barn in Dover about an opportunity to be apart of their showcase day on Sunday 8th January - we knew it was something we could not miss!

Their showcase day was a chance for their booked couples to see the wedding venue in action with suppliers dotted around in the areas relevant to where they would be. I was in the dressing room where the brides get ready for their big day, with the lovely ???
It was Hannahs birthday the day of the showcase so I packed up the car with dresses and headed off solo to the day. I was blown away by the venue, I had always heard about The Old Kent Barn and had looked on their gorgeous instagram but in person...WOW! The outside ceremony space is just magical. I went and met the organisers and was taken to the dressing room. A beautiful airy room where the bride and her bridal party get ready. Greeted with a lovely goodie bag filled with sweet treats to keep us going, I was so looked after throughout the day and could not fault their hospitality.

I had a wonderful day meeting engaged couples excited about their wedding day and chatting about the plans for their big day and then once the grooms got the nod by the brides and they headed out of the room, we could get down to the dress details! Which is always my favourite part!
Mauve by Ellis Bridals got a-lot of attention (understandably) and the over-skirt trend was certainly popular.
I had such a lovely day and was so nice to meet new vendors and be able to work with such a gorgeous, award winning venue!
If you are newly engaged and still looking for your venue and 'barn' is on your wish list - please go and take a look at The Old Kent Barn - You won't be disappointed!
