East Quay Whitstable Wedding Venue Kent

East Quay venue in Whitstable is my favourite Kent wedding venue (plus I live down the road – woohoo!). I’ve shot a couple of weddings there and love the place. It’s right on the beach, the ceremony overlooks the sea, the dinner area has open brick walls and loads of space and there’s a separate dance floor area with loads of space to throw shapes.

Ceremonies take place up on the mezzanine, which has awesome ocean views. There are only windows on one side, so I recommend you face your guests towards the window. You can have up to 100 guests for the ceremony, and 120 for dinner. Their BBQ is served outside and is delicious and smells sooo good. Later on they do fish and chips – which you just have to have if you’re getting married at the beach! They also do oysters during the reception, which always go down well – whenever I’ve shot there anyway! Apparently Whitstable is the home of the best oysters in the world so you have to do it.

Venue hire goes from £4,750 for a summer Saturday to £950 for a winter weekday (my fave weddings 😉 ) *don’t quote me on that, it’s just a guide from the 2017 brochure and doesn’t include food, which is on average £950 for a simple BBQ for 100 people – not too bad!*
