Are you looking for an ethical, sustainable wedding venue? Do you dream of minimalist monochrome styling with a modern twist? Is your Pinterest board full of personal wedding decor ideas? Well, you might just be able to have your (wedding) cake and eat it too with this gorgeous wedding at Hayne House from summer 2022. Filled to the brim with the most gorgeous personal details, Issy & Tom’s wedding day did not disappoint!
A Wedding as Individual As They Are
This wedding was all about the little things – Issy and Tom had thought of everything. Including a popcorn bar, dessert table with personalised ‘fun facts’ napkins, old photos from their parents’ weddings, personalised candles, and polaroid memories of the couple absolutely everywhere. The bride had even designed and made a wedding newspaper all about the couple which had been placed on all the tables for the guests to enjoy – this was a surprise to Tom as well, and his face was a picture when he opened up his gift from Issy that morning. Showing how perfect they are for each other, Tom had also made personalised book for Issy’s gift!
Black and White Wedding Decor
The styling was so on point, it’s what made this wedding one of my favourites of the whole year. Issy & Tom had chosen a black & white colour palette and every single detail matched this perfectly, from the stationery and signage to the Instax cameras on the guest book table (and of course the homemade newspaper tied in with this perfectly!).
A Short Wedding Dress for the Bride
I really loved Issy’s dress choice, a short Dream Sister Jane gown with three-quarter-length sleeves and a long train. She even broke out another dress for the evening party, this time from Coast, which was longer but still above the ankles and with cute puff sleeves. The bridesmaids were in Champagne gold pleated gowns and the groomsmen in classic tuxes, from Moss Bros.
Most Beautiful Wedding Venue in Kent?
Hayne House is one of my favourite venues in Kent for their stunning Orangery and perfectly manicured gardens. There is no shortage of beautiful spots for photos!
Stunning Outdoor Ceremony Pavilion
A recent addition to this Kent wedding venue is the outdoor ceremony pavilion towards the back of the gardens. Such a romantic setting for an outdoor wedding! Complete with white lawn chairs for your guests, this is my favourite ceremony option offered at Hayne House. Not only is it picture-perfect but it also offers a dramatic long and winding aisle walk from the edge of the gardens!
Let There Be (Natural) Light!
As a photographer, it’s probably obvious why I love the Orangery at Hayne House so much. With wall-to-wall french doors this room is filled with light during the day, no matter what time of year you choose to get married. For wetter days it can be offered as an indoor ceremony option, and it makes the perfect bright and airy blank canvas for couples who like a clean and contemporary style of decor.
Looking After the Planet
Awarded ‘Most Sustainable Business’ in the Kent Wedding Awards for two years running, the team at Hayne House have pledged to reduce the environmental impact of the weddings they host and eventually hope to reach carbon net zero. They recently launched a rewards programme for their couples to encourage more eco-friendly choices for their wedding day, and not only this, but for every wedding booked with them they make a donation to the Kent Woodland Trust!
