The four star Port Lympne Hotel offers couples a wonderful venue in the unique setting of Port Lympne Reserve. Fully licensed for civil partnerships and renewal of vows, the Grade 2 listed mansion and landscaped gardens provide the perfect backdrop for the most special day, with glorious panoramic views across Kent’s largest wild animal park to the coast beyond.
Our wedding team will be on hand to help from the very beginning of a couple’s wedding journey and our variety of wedding packages available, including last minute and bespoke options are designed to make the day run smoothly.
Couples can say ‘I do’ in a variety of beautiful indoor and outdoor locations within the grounds. During the summer, rings can be exchanged on the romantic, Italian inspired outdoor terraces. Alternatively, in the winter months, ceremonies can be conducted in one of the breathtakingly decorated ground floor rooms.
The Aspinall Suite adjoining the Mansion offers the ideal venue for eating, drinking and dancing after the ceremony, no matter what the weather holds in store and, for an unforgettable special touch, couples and their wedding guests can enjoy a VIP safari to The African and Asian experience. A variety of animal experiences can also be arranged, from meeting the tigers to feeding giraffe or black rhino.
The beautiful landscaped gardens provide a stunning backdrop for memorable photographs with fountains cascading into ornamental ponds, colourful borders planted with vivid blooms, dramatic walkways and of course, the magnificent Trojan Steps – decorated with mystical Egyptian friezes. As dusk falls, twinkling and subtle lighting illuminates the Mansion and gardens, creating a magical atmosphere.
