Information For Port Lympne Hotel and Reserve

Voted Kent’s ‘something different’ Wedding Venue of the Year 2016, 2017 and 2018, Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve offers couples a wonderful venue in a unique setting.

Fully licensed for indoor and outdoor 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.

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 stunning venue can cater for civil weddings for an intimate ceremony of just 2 or up to 200 guests comfortably, all with the charming backdrop of the Reserve.

Our chefs understand the importance of great food, preparation and presentation. It’s our philosophy that the food should be of restaurant quality, despite catering for large parties. New menus are put together annually including a choice of two starters, mains and desserts. Couples can also arrange their own menu and chefs are happy to discuss menu options and arrange tastings. From formal wedding breakfasts to buffets, hog roasts and barbecues – the team are delighted to offer advice and arrange the perfect food for their special day.

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 giraffes or black rhinos.

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.

The award winning boutique hotel, has eight lavishly decorated bedrooms and couples and their guests have the option of staying overnight in one of the beautifully decorated bedrooms, with a cooked breakfast the following morning, or alternatively, can choose to spend their first night in any of the other unique accommodations at the Reserve.
