Take a break from the city and head down to the Whitstable Castle Wedding Fair taking place on Sunday March 20. The day will showcase a range of exhibitors catering for all your wedding needs - from bridal wear and suit hire to florists, photographers and cars - and visitors can even win a bottle of Champagne every hour. For brides-to-be still on the lookout for a wedding venue, it is worth bearing Whitstable Castle in mind. Licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies, the Victorian castle boasts three acres of recently-renovated landscaped gardens; a grand Victorian staircase and oak-panelled ceremony room; plus a roof terrace with views across the picturesque Whitstable Bay. Besides plenty of places for photo opportunities, the castle can cater for wedding parties of up to 60 guests or, for evening receptions inside the castle or a marquee reception in the Rose Garden, up to 100. If you still need convincing, perhaps this will be the deal breaker - all income from weddings or functions at the castle go towards the Whitstable Castle Trust, protecting and preserving the buildings and grounds for future generations.

The Whitstable Castle Wedding Fair will take place on March 20 from 10am-4pm; entrance is free.
