The Buttery and Glasshouse at the Bull Hotel is a unique non-rush 48-hour wedding venue. Your own 14th century country inn becomes your home. It really is a luxury that won’t cost you any extra.


What is the capacity of The Buttery & Glasshouse?

We hold both intimate minimonies for 15 guests up to ceremonies and receptions for 150 day-guests.

Are you licensed for Civil Ceremonies and Partnerships?

Yes, we are licensed for ceremonies and civil partnerships to take place with three venue options including The Buttery, The Glasshouse or The Terrace (outdoor). When you book your wedding with us, we contact Kent County Council directly and book the ceremony for you so that you can sit back and relax! All you need to do is wait for further instructions from ‘A Kentish Ceremony’. You don't have to hold your ceremony here at The Buttery & Glasshouse. Many couples choose to hold only their wedding reception here having got married elsewhere.

Dear Emma We’re now back from a fantastic honeymoon and we just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you SO much for everything. We had an absolutely amazing day, everything was perfect and we and our guests had a fabulous time. Our wedding day was exactly how we had envisaged it and we enjoyed every single minute of it immensely. It was truly a day to remember. Please pass on our thanks to the whole team at the Bull for making our day so, so special – everyone was brilliant - but, most of all, a huge and heartfelt thank you to you for all your incredibly hard work in organising our wonderful day and for making it all happen so beautifully seamlessly. It was completely effortless from our perspective, because you and your team took care of everything. We very much appreciate it and can’t thank you enough. Here’s a link to our official photos which really do show off the Bull and its facilities – it was a gloriously sunny day which was just the icing on the cake. Please feel free to use any of them (obviously check with our lovely photographer Nicola Dawson) if you would like, there are some lovely ones on the new decking area. We’ll be popping back to the Bull regularly, not least for more of your excellent Sunday lunches, so hopefully see you again soon. Love Nicky and Dom

Hello Emma and Team Firstly myself and Joe would like to say a massive Thank you for everything that you did for us on our wedding day, it was amazing thanks to you guys. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue is and just how good the food was. We also wanted to thank you so much for doing all you could to accommodate our special guest and you holding things for as long as you could to allow her time to get ready means the world to us, it made our day truly special. Another big thank for the lovely gift left in our room, a truly beautiful gesture. Thank you for making it the special day we had hoped for from the very start when we booked to the end when were checking out. Many Thanks

I’ve been trying to find the right words to express how grateful we, and all of our family and friends are to you and all of the staff at The Bull. From the moment we met you, and saw the venue we just knew this is where we were meant to get married. You were nothing short of amazing, you put my mind at ease, and handled everything with professionalism and you really cared about giving us the perfect day. The venue is stunning, guests who are getting married this year wish they’d found you before making their booking elsewhere, everyone absolutely loved the day. You, Dijon and Stacey felt like part of the family and we appreciated everything you did for us. It was the day I’d always dreamed of. I’ve attached some of the photos, and once I’ve worked out how to share them I will happily send you all of them so you can pick and choose to share across all social media. We haven’t had the video back yet but will definitely come down to show you. Honestly Leigh Anne, we can’t thank you enough. All our love

Hiya Emma We’re still on a high! Our day was truly perfect. So many of our guests complemented on the Bull, the food, the service, the beautiful setting. We feel very lucky to have found you guys. Even the little touches on the day, like all the bar staff and waiters knowing our names - made it so personal. And a personal thank you to you Emma. You made everything so enjoyable and easy. It was virtually stress free! We’re so grateful for your guidance and being so hands on through out. Thanks for everything, we’re so so grateful! Jo & Craig
