Built in the 1930s, Port Lympne is a stunning venue that is surrounded by beautiful parkland and acres of natural countryside. The venue was bought by John Aspinall who went on to set up The Aspinall Foundation, an honourable foundation dedicated to conserving wildlife and re-introducing it to the wild.

Continuing in his father's footsteps, Damian Aspinall now heads the foundation which is dedicated to creating natural habitats for endangered species as well as creating awareness among the public.

With an incredible vision that aims to do important work for wildlife, this venue is unlike any other making it a magical place to host your wedding.

    From the moment we met Sarah we were very impressed with her. Her attention to detail was impeccable and this really showed on the day. She was solutions focused and gave us lots of ideas and inspiration that helped us to develop our vision and come up with a truly unique and unforgettable day. We are both very meticulous and know what we like and want. We were blown away with the smooth running of the day. The feedback from our family and friends has been incredible. They have all commented on how professional all of the staff were and how well run the day was. We had a number of guests who had special requirements and Sarah personally made sure each one of them was well looked after and cared for. She really went the extra mile! In short we found Sarah, helpful, insightful, patient, funny, calm, caring and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sarah to anyone. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I just wanted to thank you for helping us plan the most special day of our lives. We don't know what we would have done without you! Thank you so much for remembering all of the small things that made up our big day! There were so many things we had not thought of so we really appreciate everything you did for us. You could not have made it a better process. You kept us calm and really helped us with budgeting. You went above and beyond your job description. You really cared about us! We will always remember you!
