Hotel du Vin Tunbridge Wells is such a stylish venue that it just makes for stunning wedding photography. Coupled to this, the staff are amazing and will ensure your wedding runs without a hitch, whilst maintaining a respectful, reserved presence. I’ve worked at the hotel many, many times and due to the results I’ve produced, I’m happy to say that I’m their recommended photographer and undertake their commercial photography. I’ve just finished photographing all the bedrooms which have been redesigned, going from stunning to even more stunning!
Photography-wise, the hotel in general has an atmospheric, intimate, candle-lit appearance which lends itself to more intimate low-light photos. Outside, the vineyard can be used for photographs and is away from the main outdoor area so is nice and private for those lovely couples photos.
Hotel du Vin Tunbridge Wells is a Grade ii listed boutique Hotel located on Calverley road right in the centre of Tunbridge Wells in Kent. The sandstone building dates from Seventeen Sixty Two and was extended in Eighteen Thirty by Decimus Burton, a prolific English architect who had a large hand in the layout and buildings of Tunbridge Wells, and Calverley Park in particular (Calverley Park Crescent and the Calverley Estate).
Hotel du Vin boasts thirty four designer bedrooms and suites, including the magnificent Hush Heath bridal suite – equipped with a massive double bed, bath in the bedroom, separate wet room and sitting room. Hush Heath is the last word in luxury; a fantastic room, I stayed in it on my wedding night!
The Hotel has a number of private dining rooms to cater for all sizes of weddings – the Ruinart Room is the largest room which can accommodate around 100 guests; the Havana room seats around 30, whilst Mouton Rothschild is for the really intimate affair.
Whichever room you choose, wedding photography at Hotel du Vin Tunbridge Wells will leave you with stunning, atmospheric images to treasure!
