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 their reintroduction 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. As a wedding venue, this is unlike any other. The incredible vision that drives to protect wildlife makes it a magical place to host your wedding, perfect for any animal loving bride and groom.
The 600 acre country estate has won the Kent Wedding Awards for four years in a row and is well recognised as a luxury wedding venue which offers adventure, romance and glamour.
There are a range of licensed spaces to choose from for your wedding ceremony, including outdoor terraces and beautiful rooms indoors. Of course, you can also use these facilities for your wedding breakfast and evening reception.
Overlooking the bear enclosure, this spacious clubhouse can be exclusively yours for your wedding day and also for the night. You and your guests have your own private entrance to the venue, with stunning views of the Kent coast and - of course - the bears. This venue is ideal for a natural themed wedding and is truly something unique.
