Our hotel is one of the few wedding venues in Kent that is licensed to hold civil wedding ceremonies. These are usually held in either the Riverhead Suite, or the Cromwell Suite on any day of the week, including Sundays.

The Riverhead Suite can accommodate up to 120 people for your magical ceremony. If you want a smaller wedding, the Cromwell Suite holds 70 people, which is ideal for an intimate occasion with close relatives and friends.

Whether it’s an idyllic winter wedding or summer wedding that you desire, we’ll lay out the room to accommodate each of your treasured guests and offer room hire for your ceremony. We also offer our wedding couples individualised planning services, courtesy of our excellent wedding planning team.

Our Happy Newly Weds

Testimonials from previous customers

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you, your Manager and all of the staff at the hotel for our wedding on Saturday.

I will be recommending The Donnington Manor Hotel to all of my friends when they get married!

I was a fussy and detailed orientated bride who wanted ‘wow’ looking rooms and the team did a great a job, even though we had the ceremony, sit down meal and reception in the same room and they had to do quick change overs.

We had a very enjoyable day and you helped to make it even more so…
