Dreamland

Couples can say "I do" at the vintage amusement park in Margate.

The pair and guests can then enjoy all the attractions — from Ferris wheels and a roller disco to rollercoasters — and dance in the Grade II-listed ballroom as part of their unforgettable day.

"Dreamland is a completely unique wedding venue, where everywhere you look you'll find a wonderful sense of seaside magic ready to be sprinkled across your special day," the website reads.

Fort Amherst

Fort Amherst prides itself on hosting extreme ghostly tours

Originally constructed during Napoleonic times in preparation for a possible invasion, Chatham’s Fort Amherst was also used as a civil defence centre in both world wars.

The fort, based in Chatham, offers a variety of venues for couples to get married in.

You can choose from the atmospheric, candle lit tunnels, deep within the fort complex or the recently restored Grand Magazine building with stunning views over the River Medway.

Kent Life

Weddings at Kent Life

Kent Life is a "totally unique" venue set in 28 acres of beautiful rural surroundings, the business's website claims.

It's the perfect setting for a romantic Kentish wedding with a difference and can be found in Maidstone.

Instead of the traditional Ulcombe Village Hall, you may wish to hold your ceremony in the 19th century Old Wedding Chapel.

Originally built in Cuxton in 1897 and moved and rebuilt in Kent Life’s vintage village in 2000. The Chapel has now been deconsecrated and licensed for civil ceremonies and can accommodate up to 80 guests.

During the evening you will have use of both function rooms – Ulcombe Village Hall and the Wagon Store.

Chatham's Historic Dockyard

Weddings at Chatham's Historic Dockyard

For more than 400 years, the Royal Dockyard at Chatham made ships for the Royal Navy, including the nations most loved, HMS Victory.

Today laughter, smiles and memories are made at The Historic Dockyard Chatham.

Couples can choose to tie the knot in "four stunning historic venues", which include the Georgian Sunne Room, the Ballroom, HMS Gannet or the Patio, according to the Royal Dockyard at Chatham's website.

The Dering Arms

Weddings at the Dering Arms

The Dering Arms was once a hunting lodge, but here at the pub the ghost of an old lady is said to be seen sitting in the bar in Victorian dress, so clear that punters are said to have mistaken her for a real customer.

So if you want to give the undead an invite to your wedding the Dering Arms wouldn't be a bad bet!

At the Dering Arms, located in Pluckley near Ashford, the one thing your special day will not be, is pre-packaged.

Like everything else they do it will be fresh, local and tailor-made to ensure your special occasion is as good as it can be.

The pub has four rooms of different sizes and layouts, to suit anyone's requirements for a perfect day.
