Top Wedding Tips

Unfortunately it is illegal to throw confetti in Rochester, however we recommend bubbles as a great alternative.

Very few venues set up and decorate for a wedding. The George Vaults will happily insist on making sure everything is set up as you imagine.

The interval between ceremony and wedding breakfast is the perfect opportunity to spend time with your photographer, capturing those unforgettable images.

We love history so the setting was perfect!
We had a run of bad luck trying to book our wedding, due to many unforeseen circumstances and on our forth time trying to book somewhere, we decided we wanted to marry at the George Vaults. We have a love of history and so the setting was perfect. Carla was absolutely fantastic right from the day we booked, keeping us informed and updated at all times. On the day, it ran like clockwork and it was all thanks to Carla and her team. The room layout was beautiful and the food was incredible.
Thank you to everyone at the George Vaults, but especially Carla for making our day perfect!

We couldnt have asked for more
The first time we visited The George Vaults, we knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding.
The vault was very intimate and perfect for the number of guests that attended.

We were blessed with glorious weather, so the garden was lovely for our guests to relax in, prior to the ceremony and until we were seated for our meal.
All our guests commented that is was one of the best weddings that they had been too.
Having Rochester Castle so close by, made it the perfect setting for our photo's.
From start to finish, Carla was amazing and her team on the day were very friendly and attentive. The day ran perfectly, we couldn't have asked for more.
Thanks again for making our day so special.

Romantic, rustic yet magnificent
From the first contact to our actual day, the team at George Vaults helped create our perfect day. Our wedding was an intimate family affair, with a warm, loving atmosphere with simple decorations and no dj. The Vault setting is romantic, rustic yet magnificent and created an ambiance like no other. The wedding breakfast package we chose allowed enough choice that it catered for dietary requirements and vegan options. We chose to have giant jenga, donut wedding cakes, candy station and music was piped in from the bar above. The staff were just perfect! The barman also performed slight of hand magic at the bar, which kept plenty of people interested. All 25 of our guests felt happy, full and comfortable in their surroundings and we couldn't have asked for more!

The Vaults couldn’t of been any more perfect for our wedding! It was the only venue that we viewed and we knew straight away it was perfect for us. All of our guests commented on the venue and how beautiful it was.
Carla was amazing and so helpful from the moment I first emailed and enquired about The Vaults right up until the very big day. There is not one bad word I could say about The Vaults and the team. Would highly recommend to anyone that is wanting an intimate and romantic wedding, truly stunning venue!
Thank you all so much for your help!

Simply beautiful
On choosing our venue, the Vault sold it to us! It's simply beautiful. We only had a small, intimate wedding, and the Vault was the perfect size too. Carla was simply fabulous from beginning to the end and made the whole process very easy. Our guests had a great time reporting that it was one of the best weddings they'd been to - need we say more! P&D.

Perfect Day
Me and my partner got married at your venue on 18.08.18 and we honestly couldn’t of asked for it to be more perfect than it was! Your staff are an absolute credit to you and Carla was amazing from the moment we even enquired about having our wedding here. They made sure everything ran smoothly and the set up was a dream! All our wedding guests complimented the venue and how beautiful it truly was. We seriously can’t thank Carla and the team enough!

Carla Aris

My name is Carla and I am the Wedding Coordinator at The George Vaults in Rochester. I have been planning weddings for the George Vaults for over 10 years now and I can honestly say my job never gets boring. I love meeting new couples every day and helping bring together the best day of their lives. My best role is taking the stress and worries away from my couples and let them relax and take in every moment of their big day and the run up to it too. Sometimes I do not want a wedding to end, I almost feel part of the family.
