Oriental Pearl at Bluewater have some pretty dresses around £138 so that's a bonus too.....

      I know the Hop Farm. It is lovely there, we went to a christening there last yr. Beautiful for a wedding. We might have a pop down there ourselves. Was the room hire expensive? My FI also said last night about Hever Castle. So if Brands Hatch fall through we have some back up's!

      High rocks is in Tunbridge isn't it? That's supposed to be a nice wedding spot too :o)

        I know bargain and on Saturday when I got there it was 25% off as well!!! Love Oriental Pearl I've been there quite a few times as work in Longfield so can pop to Bluewater in my lunch. We are having our party a week after we get back on 5th feb so still out of wedding season think the room hire was £400 and then £13 per head for buffet so v good and their customer service is excellent. We popped into the High Rocks which is nice BUT they wanted the full £1000 deposit now and it was non refundable - that deposit was for the room and food. I refused to do that so they lost our booking! They also have 3 - 4 rooms so you may not be the only wedding party there which we didnt want as for most of the people coming it will be like the real wedding so we wanted to make it just as special. I thought getting married abroad was the cheaper option but its all starting to add up - lol!
        Whoops beta get back to work ........

          What a bonus having 25% off! Lovely. I do love a bargain!! That price is brilliant for your reception. What gets me with mine is we opted for the restaurant at the Thistle. Stunning room, we didn't like their function room. But the function room hire is £800 and the restaurant is £1800. They said as it's been refurbed, but surely they have a contingency fund for that, it's not down to the guest to pay for their updating...... Sorry having a little rant there. I will on Saturday when we are there too. Seeing your price defo makes me think twice about the Thistle! I know what you mean. It does add up and you can easliy get carried away with it all. Sometimes i have to take a step back and have a think about what i'm doing and why...lol.

          I am lucky i work from home and am on here all the time. lol. I am addicted. It's like facebook, hee hee!

            Oh my god... can I just say how jealous I am of you UK brides and your reception options over there!!!! I've googled some of these places you two have mentioned (Hever Castle, High Rocks, Bickley Manor) and they are so stunning, I can't imagine even doing a destination wedding!! Granted, I'm sure that it's completely different when these places are the norm where you live, but we have nothing like them in America, and I'm so jealous that you all do:) I had a friend, who lives in Wales (her husband is in the RAF) but is from Surrey, and her wedding pictures were absolutely to die for. The wedding was at Wedding Venue, Conference Rooms, Deluxe Holiday Accommodation in Witney, Oxfordshire, UK. It made me want to do a DW in the UK!!

                  I guess we are v lucky - but I dont think you always appreciate whats on your doorstep. The only problem with here is the weather - if you had an outside ceremony i think i would die of a heart attack stressing over the weather. LOL! Even in the height of summer. I would love a typical wedding in an English castle but I have to realistic - ironically its still cheaper for 17 of us to travel to Mexico for 2 weeks than have a wedding here. Oxfordshire is a gorgeous part of the world as well. Think me and Michelle are v lucky down here in Kent - its known as the garden of england - apparently!!!
