The Art of Weddings


A unique venue ‘The site is spectacular… the subtle play of light, sky and sea inside and outside is exhilarating, even euphoric.’ Burlington magazine Turner Contemporary is the South East’s newest and most spectacular venue for civil ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and receptions. Our striking art gallery, designed by award-winning architect David Chipperfield, offers a truly unique setting to celebrate your most treasured day with family and friends. Located in the historic seaside town of Margate, the gallery overlooks the North Kent coast, and the same beautiful skies that Britain’s best-loved painter JMW Turner described as ‘…the loveliest in all Europe’. Combine this with the exceptional, bespoke service that we offer, and Turner Contemporary can make your special day nothing less than perfect. ‘We fell in love with Turner Contemporary on our first visit! When we got engaged we couldn’t imagine having our wedding reception anywhere else. We knew the setting would make for a great day as it is next to the sea, which is something we always envisaged for our reception. The wedding team has been behind us every step of the way, ensuring that the day will be just as we want it.’ Auguste Rodin, The Kiss, 1901-4 Tate, London, 2011
