Cooling Castle is among the best known and most popular wedding venues in the Kent region. This place is super popular for couples who like the charm of a barn venue and I’ve worn my heels here a number of times as a wedding photographer.
Couple: Sarah and David.
Ceremony and reception: Cooling Castle Barn, Main Rd, Rochester ME3 8DT.
Here’s a throwback to their wonderful day. I remember this wedding fondly as Mr and Mrs Mac where and still are one of the most chilled out couples I’ve ever worked with and super loved up with each other – Sarah’s smile has just brimming all day.
Cooling Castle hosted the wedding ceremony in the Fathom Barn and as David waited for his bride, Sarah had a delicate entrance down the wooden staircase to find her father waiting to accompany her down the aisle and onto the stage area.
Of course, the key appeal of his venue is the charming high beamed Tithe barn reception hall, which is just super cosy and rustic with a nice table layout that spills out onto the beer garden Pavilion. That said, it’s likely many couples are also lured by the neighbouring castle tower backdrop for photos.
Sarah and David are a pair of jet setters, so their table plans where all set to their favourite beaches around the world. I might have been just a little envious of their passport stamps! Their wedding cake was also on the epic scale.
A beautiful couple, lovely crowd and happy faces in a good place.
