What our happy couples say...
Steph & Andy
We had an absolutely amazing wedding at Port Lympne, we still have friends tell us (unprompted) that it was the best wedding they'd ever attended! Our wedding co-ordinator Hannah was really nice, well organised and even went above and beyond to hire some vintage crockery for our wedding breakfast as a surprise. The added extras of a safari for the guests, and the fact that we got to do a giraffe feeding just added so much fun and made it that extra bit special. We would definitely recommend having your wedding at Port Lympne, and wish we could do it all over again!
