Wedding packages at the Hythe Imperial Hotel

From a sun-soaked summer ceremony to a warm-hearted winter celebration, from a giant party for a huge extended family to a quiet evening for your closest friends, whatever you want from your special day, at the Hythe Imperial hotel we can make it happen. We’ve hosted hundreds of weddings, each one of them different – and with a wide range of options for your ceremony, reception and stay, we’ll make yours unique and perfect too.

With history, glamour and beautiful scenery all on offer, the Hythe Imperial has to be one of east Kent’s most romantic locations. The hotel stands on the seafront, overlooking the beach and the English Channel; behind it lies the town, pretty and historic, with a 10th-century church, miniature railway and array of independent shops, pubs and fish and chip restaurants to explore.

The hotel itself dates from the 1880s, when it was built by the South Eastern Railway Company, and is surrounded by formal gardens. You can choose to have an outdoor summer wedding in the gardens between April and September – you’ll be sheltered under our pretty gazebo as you take your vows.

But as one of the largest wedding venues in Kent, there’s much more to the Hythe Imperial than just good looks. The hotel has a health club and spa with a gym, heated indoor pool, whirlpool bath, steam room and sauna, all of which are free for our guests to use. There’s also an 18-hole golf course, running alongside the Royal Military Canal. Plus there are two restaurants, two bars – including a Moet & Chandon champagne bar – and a salon where you can enjoy one of our afternoon teas, served on Victorian-style china.

A full reception will include a wedding breakfast chosen from our array of menu options – which, as well as modern British and continental dishes, includes mouth-watering dining from our Asian restaurant, the Holy Pundit. Or you may prefer to skip the formal dinner and just opt for a low-key evening celebration, with a finger buffet of tasty sandwiches and snacks instead.

You and your guests will have exclusive use of our ballroom, sundecks and terraces throughout your day. On your wedding night, you’ll stay in one of our individually decorated deluxe rooms. Your guests get special rates too, and with Sunday weddings, overnight accommodation for up to 20 people as well as the bride and groom is included in the price.

Your dedicated wedding planner will help you with each and every detail from the word go, so everything is as you want it to be. We’re pretty flexible and even have some dates left this year if your wedding needs to be sooner rather than later.
