The perfect venue!

I had my wedding at The Kensington Hotel and it was absolutely perfect! The venue was so beautiful and we knew immediately when we visited it for the first time two years ago that we wanted to get married there. It was very versatile and had many great spots to take photos and rooms to get ready in. It was also convenient for our guests to stay at the hotel and made things easier for them. The food and bar was also great and the staff was very friendly and polite.

Our wedding was planned for 2020 and we had to postpone it to 2021. They were really flexible with us and made it easy for us to change our date. Throughout the process, we met with Leah a few times virtually and she answered all of our questions and helped make sure we were following the current guidelines and restrictions. It was cold and rainy on our wedding day, so we decided to move our ceremony indoors and she made the ceremony space look amazing! When I saw how everything looked, I was happy with getting married in the ballroom instead of in the courtyard. She made sure the venue was decorated beautifully and to our liking. There were times before the wedding when I felt very stressed and overwhelmed planning a Covid wedding, and Leah helped ease my nerves and made the process easier. I was worried my wedding was not going to look the way I wanted it to due to covid and the restrictions, but Leah and the staff at the hotel made our wedding better and more beautiful than I could’ve imagined it!

Dream wedding

We had an amazing wedding at the Kensington Hotel. From the time we visited, we knew immediately that we wanted to have our wedding at the hotel. Leah was so kind, helpful and welcoming right from the start. The hotel is so neat from a decor standpoint, a cool mix of old and modern. The outdoor courtyard is beautiful and perfect for a wedding ceremony. Another thing that really caused us to choose the Kensington was the flexibility with the menu. We had a vegetarian wedding and there were many options to choose from. The chef happily made us an off menu dish for vegans that turned out great! We were so impressed that they offered to make our own dish for us, few places are that flexible. Again, Leah was amazing to work with. While we did have a wedding coordinator on board prior to finding our venue, I am certain that if we hadn’t everything still would have gone perfectly smoothly with Leah coordinating at the hotel. Everything about our day was perfect. Even though it rained on our day and we moved our ceremony inside, no one noticed because the change in plans went so smoothly and the decor was beautiful. The staff at the hotel were fabulous. So accommodating, so nice. Multiple guests commented on how good the staff were at the reception.
If you are looking for a venue that will work with you to make your day how YOU want it, not just their cookie cutter wedding, then the Kensington is a great venue. We had an amazing wedding.

We had our son's wedding here. It was an amazing experience. We recommend this hotel highly if you are planning a wedding. From the beginning until the very end they are with you every step of the way. Helping you with all the details, even the ones you never even thought of. They gave my son and daughter a fairy tale wedding. Many of the guest stayed at the hotel and loved it. The staff was the best, tending to everyone's needs. I can't say enough about the staff and this hotel, they were wonderful. Leah our wedding coordinator even taking care of the bride's dress sewing buttons on her dress to hold up her train. Polite, knowledgeable, definitely going above and beyond to make our experience a memorable one, thank you so much. The Vaughan Family
