Guy and Andrew made magical once in a lifetime memories when they tied the knot at Turner Contemporary Art Gallery in Margate.

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.”

“After the ceremony, there was a chance for our guests to look around Turner Contemporary’s Grayson Perry: Provincial Punk exhibition and play Carlos Amorales’ We Will See How Everything Reverberates, an interactive sculpture made from propelled cymbals – particularly enjoyed by our younger guests!”

Watching the sunset over Margate bay was such a romantic setting to end our perfect day.”
