Magical experience on our beautiful day at the Orangery Maidstone
The stage was set for our big day on 26 th August 2022. First date was cancelled due to pandemic. Couldn't have picked a better venue. Orangery staff were very supportive from day 1. On the morning of the wedding beautiful decorations, music and everything I imagined and provided were beautifully setup by the Orangery staff, couldn't have done it any better myself. Stunning work. Project managed my suppliers very well to get it completed on time. All we had to do was walk into a magical experience. Orangery looked beautiful. The Lapa was stunning. Perfect fairytale wedding venue. Helen and her team are an exceptional event team and they are so very organised. Helped us to bring our asian culture to our celebration in the evening by introducing Sri Lankan Chef to complete the experience. Both my husband Dom and I take away memories of a perfect day and my guests cannot stop talking about the venue and staff. Beautiful food for wedding breakfast. Starters, main snd dessert. Cooked to perfection. Excellent service and very professional, friendly event team. We love to see future couples have same experience as we did with fond memories. A big thank you Helen and Vicky, Bryony who managed my ceremony with Jamie. And Kate. Thank you for magical day ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

The Best Venue
Our wedding day couldn't have gone more perfectly. We had a lot of stress and things go wrong leading up to the day of our wedding but the staff ensured that the day went without a hitch! They were onto it and we didn't even have to think about what we needed to or where we needed to be as they were there every step of the way. The venue is amazing and food delicious, we had so many comments from guests which made it even more special for us. It was our dream wedding and we wish we could do it all again! Jess & Rhees x
