The beach-side Hythe Imperial Hotel is the perfect wedding destination

Home » Blog » The beach-side Hythe Imperial Hotel is the perfect wedding destination

There is no doubt that planning a wedding can be stressful. The dress or suits, the budget, the family politics, then there are the additional ‘moving parts’ such as the logistics of where everyone might stay, the catering and the organisation. The list can be quite overwhelming.  

This is when a hotel wedding could very well be the perfect destination.  The Hythe Imperial Hotel is located right on the beach and has everything for a perfect wedding under its roof!


A hotel wedding means no more worrying about where your family and guests might stay, and no question of how you might ship them to the venue – and back – on the day!   

Weddings now often stretch beyond one big day, and a hotel wedding allows friends and families to meet and celebrate the night before – as well as the day after, and for the wedding party to get ready in sumptuous style.  

Special rates are available for wedding parties, and with early bookings it is usually possible to block-book accommodation in the hotel.  


Holding your celebration under one roof means no transport is needed for the couple or any resident guests. That said, we often have couples who enjoy the spectacle of arriving in a classic car and will have a car pick them up, drive them through the beautiful town of Hythe to return to us for the ceremony – a wonderful sight.  

Hythe is also perfectly placed for road and motorway network, as well as the London airports and cross-channel services – ideal for guests coming from further afield.  

An experienced team

One of the greatest benefits of a hotel wedding will be the team of in-house wedding planners.  Here at the Hythe Imperial, our team is hand-picked for their experience and skills in all aspects of event planning.  

If you are organising your first wedding, you will no doubt have a million queries, and our wedding coordinators are perfectly placed to answer your questions and put your mind at ease throughout the whole process having organised hundreds of special days.  

Likely they will have come across every scenario and will know just how our stunning venue works in terms of its space, setting and ambience.  To know that you are in such capable hands can alleviate so much stress.  

Facilities on the doorstep  

Hotels also offer the added benefit of great facilities and unique spaces.

Here, for example, we have the most stunning 18-hole golf course overlooking the sea. Its greens are prefect for players of all ages and abilities and offer the perfect start – or end – to an extended wedding celebration.  We also have a spa, with pool and treatments rooms for some pre-wedding pampering.  

On a practical note, hotels also provide plenty of parking and are fully accessible to guests with access or mobility requirements.  With lounges and quiet spaces aplenty, there are also places to which older guests can retreat if things get a little much!  

At the Hythe Imperial, we believe all our couples should be able to have their wedding their way. Our beach-side Kent wedding venue has SO much to offer – and it’s all under one stunning roof!
