From the onset you were immediately welcoming and made us feel at ease. Port Lympne is definitely a hidden treasure with stunning scenery and wildlife making it the perfect venue for a British-South African wedding. Our guests were truly blown away with the location (hotel, grounds, safari, etc.). Huge thanks to you and the wonderful team whom gave us the warmest welcome, made our wedding day stress free, relaxed and ensured us nothing was too much trouble. Thank you to everyone that worked so hard to make our day seem so effortless.

Nick and I got married here on Saturday and well what can I say. INCREDIBLE! I want to say a huge thank you to all of the staff, the cleaners were so kind and informed me personally when the room was ready, the restaurant staff went above and beyond to make sure my dress was in a safe place, the rangers were on time to pick us up from bear lodge in the morning and for our giraffe encounter and were genuinely excited for us. I want to mention a special thank you to Jess our wedding organiser whose calm personality is just what I needed!! She has been an absolute star from day one when we booked (which was about a year ago). She replies to all my questions, and believe me I do go on and on! The day was 10000% better than I expected, I thought I was going to be stressed the whole day but nope not at all! Not to mention how absolutely stunning the venue is! We are lucky it didnt rain but if it had done you have no worries, its stunning in every room. I honestly cannot recommend having your wedding here enough, they were so so accommodating and we will definitely be spending every anniversary here that is for sure! I want the day to happen 100 times over again! Thank you so so so much it really was the best day of our lives xxx

Apologies that it has taken a while for us to email you, we've been enjoying the amazing weather as well as our first week as Mr & Mrs Mount! We just wanted to say thank you so much to yourself and the team at PL for such an amazing wedding - it was the best day of our lives! Everything was so seamless throughout the day, there wasn't a single thing about the whole day that we would change and I think a lot of that is down to how amazing you all are. The whole process from our first meeting right up to the wedding day itself was so well organised on your part and at no point did we feel stressed or feel like we had to chase you for anything. Thank goodness that the weather held out for us, I think had it been this weekend, all 140 of us would have melted!! Everyone who attended has told us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to which was so wonderful to hear.
