A fantastic wedding day
Port Lympne events team were fantastic, from start to finish. Great organisation ahead of the wedding meant we could just relax and enjoy the day, and it went smoothly without a hitch. The food was excellent, and the chef allowed us to add a personal favourite to the menu - sticky toffee pudding! The team were extremely accommodating throughout, friendly and helpful. The house is a stunning setting made so special by the sea views and the incredible safari sunset. If you care for animals, it’s a

Beautiful venue with a twist
Our October wedding at Port Lympne was stunning - we had our ceremony in the Pergola followed by a reception in The Orangery, and the day ran smoothly. The staff are friendly and accommodating, the venue itself is beautiful with very little additional decorations needed, the safari was a huge talking point and we've been told repeatedly that the food was the best anyone had at a wedding all year. We'd definitely recommend booking your wedding here, you won't regret it.

The sun come out for the safari and we felt like we could have been abroad, it was magical! The food was also delicious along with the evening buffet which the guests were a massive fan of! Everything ran so smoothly thanks to our lovely to

Unique Venue
We were married at Port Lympne on the August bank holiday 2023 and would thoroughly recommend the venue. The Port Lympne team were incredibly helpful and responsive throughout. No question or detail was too much for Stephanie and Annie, who provided an excellent standard of service; they were straightforward to deal with and any concerns or queries were dealt with swiftly. The wedding day itself ran smoothly and was truly memorable for both us and our guests.

Thank you
Hi Annie & Team, Port Lympne is a truly amazing place to get married and we had an absolutely fabulous day celebrating with our friends and family. The venues are stunningly beautiful and so unique, and the team will help you put together the most special day. It's safe to say we never initially envisaged having a safari experience on our wedding day, but after our wedding at Port Lympne, we could not imagine the day without it
