Wedding at Cooling Castle Barn, Rochester

I absolutely LOVE Cooling Castle Barn! It's a gorgeous barn venue situated in Rochester in Kent and has some incredible castle turrets right by the entrance, which is where it gets it's name from.

Spring is my favourite time of year here because theres so much blossom and prettiness around the grounds. However it looks stunning all year round! The ceremony barn is so beautiful and the old beams and brickwork are just gorgeous.

They have recently added the Moat House which is a beautiful bright and airy room which is perfect for bridal preparations. It's so much easier for you to get ready on-site and you can make sure is everything is good to go on the day. There is also plenty of room for your guests to stay on-site which is always important when planning a wedding.

For your bride and groom portraits there is plenty of opportunity. Usually we go for a wander around the gardens and photograph locations depending on the light that day and what works best. The castle turrets is a must have photo with the bride and groom and there is also the file just across the road from the venue which can also make a really nice shot.

The reception barn is breath taking when it's all decorated for the wedding day. The food is also delicious! And the party kicks off in the same room which works really well. Usually your guests will mingle in the gardens while the room is turned around for the first dance.

The in house toastmaster is so lovely and super helpful which leaves you stress free knowing that he is taking care of everything while you enjoy the day with your guests.

I always love working at Cooling Castle, it's such a welcoming place and the staff are so friendly and helpful.

Here are a few photos from Becca and Tom's Spring wedding at Cooling Castle...
