Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve is Kent’s largest wildlife park.  Home to amazing animals and the county’s only safari experiences, the 600 acre country estate is also an award winning wedding venue, offering couples an incredible location filled with romance, adventure, luxury and glamour.

Situated within one of the most picturesque and unique areas of the County, couples can choose to say their vows and celebrate their special day at a variety of locations around the reserve, ranging from 4 star luxury at Port Lympne Hotel, to more intimate ceremonies at Giraffe Cottage or the Treehouse Hotel and country style weddings at Bear Lodge.

The Grade 2 Listed Port Lympne Hotel and surrounding gardens provide couples with a choice of indoor and outdoor areas to say their vows, including romantic Italian inspired terraces and the exotic Moroccan Courtyard, decorated with handpicked antiques from the souks of Marrakesh.  Indoor options include the muralled reception rooms, or the Aspinall Suite, perfect for large wedding breakfasts followed by dancing the night away.

Giraffe Cottage has a pretty cottage garden, with incredible views over The African Experience and offers couples a charming venue with private ranger guided safari, personal chef and overnight accommodation for eight people, whilst the Treehouse Hotel, offering views over the rhino paddocks, is perfect for a relaxed ceremony with a contemporary feel, reflecting the natural surroundings. 

Bear Lodge, with its private entrance, parking, spacious clubhouse and overnight glamping accommodation is ideal for natural themed, country style weddings with incredible views over the spectacled bear habitat to the coast beyond.

Each licenced area around the Reserve can be booked exclusively and each one offers glorious views and a wonderful backdrop for photographs and unmissable Instagram moments. 

Surrounded by some of the world’s most endangered animals, couples and their guests can enjoy a private safari after their ceremony to see free roaming wild animals or get up close and personal with their favourite animal with an exclusive animal encounter!


With a range of completely unique and effortlessly chic overnight accommodation available, couples can opt to spend their first night together, either star gazing at The Bubble, or snuggling up together in a shepherd’s hut, or even sleeping within a whisker of tigers or lions in a luxury lodge.


Our team will be on hand to help from the very beginning of a couple’s wedding journey and our variety of wedding packages available, including last minute and bespoke options, are designed to make the day run smoothly and suit a variety of budgets.


There’s also a wide variety of special touches available and with menu tastings included in some packages, or dry hire for those who want to bring in their own caterers, it’s easy to see why Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve is a destination of choice for couples looking for a unique venue.
