Planning the Arrangements

"We would like to thank you for your hard work on the day and in the months leading up to the wedding. Your experience and guidance were invaluable and your willingness to accommodate our ideas and wishes meant the whole occasion was very special and personal." Damian


Owner Judith Phillips has organised hundreds of weddings at Kentwell and offers couples a complete wedding planner service. She is usually (directly) responsible for organizing all weddings at Kentwell and will be on hand from the moment you decide to use Kentwell to the big day to ensure everything runs smoothly and to time, leaving you free to relax and enjoy your day.

Indicative quote

As soon as we have a timetable and a rough outline, Judith will give you an informal quote costing the main items.

The date

Kentwell is our home and we choose to host relatively few weddings each year. Once you have an acceptable indicative quote, you can proceed to booking a date and we can choose a date convenient to both Kentwell and you. So, whenever possible, settle your date after such a meeting not before. Dates tend to book up very quickly.


By paying the deposit you secure the agreed date. After a detailed planning meeting you will receive a quotation. The deposit will be set off against your final bill if you go ahead but is not refundable if you decide to cancel.


Costs depend on numbers and what you require. For 70 people it is likely to be about £120 per person, depending upon a couple's choices. But we always give you an indication of what your requirements might cost in total before you have to commit yourself.This is not always the case elsewhere as couples learn to their cost too late. Indeed, for those prepared to concentrate upon the essentials we have managed to tailor weddings to suit quite limited budgets and enjoyed trying to do so.
