Amazing venue & fantastic staff in the perfect setting
Wow, what a day. We’ve said it was the best day of our lives. A day we will cherish forever. Thanks to the brilliant staff at Lympne Castle who made our wedding day magical. The castle was simply stunning and all our guests said it was one of the best wedding venues they’ve ever been to. Everything was perfect from the exceptional food to the gorgeous views over the Romney marsh.

Our day was just perfect
We can't thank you enough for making our day just perfect. From making sure everyone was where they needed to be at the right time to the extra touches of putting the centre pieces around the castle for the evening guest to see. You helped make our day absolutely perfect. Thank you so so much. Everyone who came said how beautiful the castle is and what an amazing venue it was. Rebecca and James Rutherford 25th November 2018

A fantastic day.
Thank you for making our day just perfect. We could not have wished for a better venue to host our wedding day. Not only have all of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was but also on how amazing the food was and organised the staff were. A special thank you to Aimee who has been amazing from start to finish and particularly on the day from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Having worked at a wedding venue myself I understand what goes into making a weddinng run smoothly and I cannot fault the organisation, it was seamless.

Amazing First off the beautifully kept gardens and grounds gives you the best first impression and that detail doesn't stop there. We was looked after from the off, as two people who didn't have a clue how to organise a wedding we was aided with decisions and even some great ideas were given which was very helpful and we didn't even think of some of it. Myself and 6 bridesmaids got ready in Harry's room which was a great size for us all to get dresses and flap around. I had a panick over some things in the morning as my music wasn't downloaded properly and they managed to help and fix any issue that arrised on the day from ripped trousers to pins for some decorations. The flow of the day was great ,very well organized by the team at the castle and the food was gorgeous too . I would thoroughly recommend this venue if you want to relax knowing the venue have it covered 😁 we even got a hug goodbye the next day when we left 👌

An amazing venue with fantastic staff.
well what can I say!! an amazing venue with fantastic staff. From beginning to end we were given so much personal service from everyone at the castle but Aimee was amazing!!! from small little touches around the castle to making me and my now husband feel calm before the big moment...Aimee must have had a Mary Poppins bag as she had everything we needed on hand from sewing kits to mints, scissors and glue and we couldn't have asked for a better day. Thank you for making our day so special ...even to the last touch of a hug goodbye this morning .

FAQ

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Before you look at venues consider your numbers. Both your minimum and maximum.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

A bride had unfortunately lost both her parents and was to walk down the aisle alone, it was upsetting to her. When it came time to enter her groom walked down the aisle and met her and walked with her. It was the most special moment they walked in to their married life together. I do not think there was a dry eye in the room.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Beautiful, unique, breath-taking, exclusive, welcoming.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

This is a hard one as there is so many spots. For me the turret in the garden over looking the Kent coast and English Channel!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Yes but we do not mention names for privacy. We have however had a few film and TV productions at the castle and Paul McCartney recorded at the castle with Wings.

What’s your favourite canapé?

Japanese breaded prawns with honey and wasabi but the honey and mustard sausage skewers are a favourite amongst guests.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

You cannot beat a bacon roll at the end of the night to see your guests off.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

It is a grade 1 listed, exclusive use castle with breath taking views stretching from Hythe to Rye and on a clear day you can see France.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The staff, nothing is very to much trouble.
