Guy and Andrew made magical once in a lifetime memories when they tied the knot at Turner Contemporary Art Gallery in Margate.
We looked at quite a few venues after we got engaged, including hotels, country homes and manor houses, but we didn't want a traditional space. We didn't want our day to be spent in someone else's home. Turner Contemporary's elegant and open spaces filled with natural light sold it for us.
Margate's iconic coastal gallery, designed by the award-winning David Chipperfield Architects, made an exciting and inspiring venue for Guy and Andrew's special day.
We're both local to Kent and love the sea, so it was really important to us that we were able to have our ceremony, reception and meal overlooking the panoramic North Sea views and its radiant skies.
From vintage to haute couture, traditional to contemporary, this venue truly complements a variety of tastes and styles. We decided that less was more when it came to room decoration Turner Contemporary's interior is clean, linear and made a unique statement on its own, but we did add a few personal touches, making our own bunting, centrepieces and favours.
It was incredible to make our vows surrounded by world-class art.
After the ceremony, there was a chance for our guests to look around Turner Contemporary's Grayson Perry: Provincial Punkexhibition and play Carlos Amorales' We Will See How Everything Reverberates, an interactive sculpture made from propelled cymbals particularly enjoyed by our younger guests!
Working closely with Kent and Thanet-based suppliers, the dedicated Turner Contemporary wedding team ensured that Guy and Andrew's celebration was flawless. The team had everything in hand, which meant we really were able to sit back and enjoy our day.
Being right on Margate sands meant that we were able to walk on the beach and reflect together once all our guests had gone home. Watching the sunset over Margate bay was such a romantic setting to end our perfect day.
