Breath-taking wedding venue
Venue Service

By Katie and Andy Beasley, on 30 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 29 Nov 2019

I could not imagine anywhere else more perfect for a wedding. It was our first and only venue viewing, we fell so in love with it that we booked a date there and then. We loved that our ceremony, reception and accommodation (we used the cottages) were all within the grounds plus the added bonus of the new bridal preparation room. We also had the benefit of Christmas trees and log fires which made our winter wedding particularly festive in the castle setting. The building and views are stunning - our guests were in awe! Aimee, our coordinator was first class in communications, expertise and ensuring the preparations and day ran to schedule. Nothing was too much trouble for her, even helping the grooms party with their buttonholes, a kind and personal touch. The staff were fabulous too and made us all smile with their lovely comments about our celebrations. The brilliant chefs offer an impressive menu, catering for all dietary choices and it is both delicious and beautifully presented. Lympne Castle had everything we could have wished for and more, it is a truly special venue, one of a kind.

Best Wedding Venue - Look no further
Venue Service

By Clarissa Minty, on 11 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 02 Nov 2019

Lympne Castle is the most perfect wedding venue. Not only is it absolutely stunning, has roaring fires, beautiful grounds and views but you get the whole venue exclusive which for us was a big bonus! From the moment we booked it as a venue we were assigned a wedding coordinator - ours was Aimee and she was fantastic! Anything we needed she was super quick to reply and so helpful. We visited the castle lots and went to one of their dinner nights (which I highly recommend.) Our wedding day couldn't have been as smooth as it was if it wasn't for Aimee and her staff they made everything so easy for us and she even held my umbrella and helped me across to the church in the morning. Everything that the staff do is perfect - the food is superb and the whole venue flows nicely for guests. If you are thinking of getting married here look no further or even for a party - it's a fantastic venue and you won't be disappointed.

An amazing venue with fantastic staff
Venue Service

By Laura & Joseph, on 07 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Nov 2018

well what can I say!! an amazing venue with fantastic staff. From beginning to end we were given so much personal service from everyone at the castle but Aimee was amazing!!! from small little touches around the castle to making me and my now husband feel calm before the big moment...Aimee must have had a Mary Poppins bag as she had everything we needed on hand from sewing kits to mints, scissors and glue and we couldn't have asked for a better day. Thank you for making our day so special ...even to the last touch of a hug goodbye this morning .

Our wedding day was perfect
Venue Service

By Rosy & Nick, on 06 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Oct 2018

To Sue, Thank you so much for coordinating & running our wedding so smoothly. It was a great day & we really enjoyed it, the setting and the positive vibes. You did an amazing job from start to finish & we really appreciate your hard work. It has been fantastic working with you from start to finish - we could not have had anyone better than you. Our wedding day was perfect. We don't think it could have gone any better, even though it was drizzly and cloudy it did not effect us. All of our guests have said what a lovely wedding it was, so well put together & they loved the food. Lympne castle will always be special to us.

Can not recommend highly enough.

We had our wedding ceremony and celebration at the castle this weekend. We had the most amazing day in this beautiful location. Getting married in front of a stunning view out to the sea with the warmth of the sun shining though the tall windows. Bubbles on the terrace in the grounds of this impressive but intimate castle. High quality menu that catered for all requirements and a great wine offering. Hosted by Sue and her team, who were incredibly professional and ensured every little detail was attended to without prompting. Can not recommend highly enough. Thank you so much Sue for all your help and ensuring our special day ran perfectly. Christine & David Xx

Absolutely Faultless
Venue Service

By Verity and Hemish, on 24 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2018

The service we received from Lympne Castle was absolutely faultless. Not only is the venue beautiful, but the venue staff ensured that everything ran smoothly. Particular thanks must go to Aimee who made sure that our day was perfect. Plenty of our guests commented on how great the service was and we would fully recommend this venue to any future grooms or brides out there!

By Kishan & Lauren, on 17 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Aug 2018

Hello Sue, We are back in Trinidad now, after our wonderful trip to England, to attend Kishan & Lauren's wedding at Lympne Castle ... and what a wedding it was !!! We have to thank you for doing such a fantastic job of organising everything, to perfection. Nothing can beat the beautiful setting of Lympne, but the excellent service from the Lympne staff, made all the difference. We have received rave reviews of the wedding, and though I am saying 'thank you', I really cannot take any of the credit. Special thanks must go to the chef who went the extra mile to make the callaloo soup (which looked better than the one I make :-) and curried goat - everyone enjoyed !! The food was all delicious and the presentation is beyond words - luckily, I took photos to include in my album. Whoever made the rum punch did a great job - my sister Mala (the rum punch expert) gave it a 10/10. We all have lovely memories of Kishan & Lauren's special day and we thank you and the Lympne team for doing such an outstanding job. It will be a hard act to follow when we do the celebration in Trinidad early next year. All the best to you & everyone at Lympne Castle.

By Fiona and Dave Miller July 2018, on 07 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Jul 2018

After spending two weeks researching Kent wedding venues, we chanced upon Lympne Castle and rang Rod to find out a little more. We drove down to see the castle in the snow and fell in love with it straight away. We had our engagement shoot there in extreme wind and rain and our wedding took place on the hottest day of the century! Having experienced the castle, in all extremes of weather, it remains a stunning, yet intimate and homely venue. You really do have the run of the Castle for the entire day, which is rare with other wedding venues these days, particularly castles. The staff were amazing at every stage. We hadn't left ourselves much time to plan our wedding, but never felt pressured to make decisions. Apart from the stunning views, magnificent ceremony room and Great Hall for the reception, the terrace and lawn are a perfect backdrop for photos and all our guests could talk about was what an amazing place this was! The food was incredible, with more than 1 guest saying it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. The day went seamlessly and we really didn't have to worry about anything other than enjoying our special day. This is a real testament to Aimee's professionalism and attention to detail as everything happened on time, without us having to do anything. Lympne Castle got under our skin from the moment we first visited and holds a very special place in our hearts. We would thoroughly recommend this venue and the team and we feel very lucky that we were able to have our wedding here.

What a perfect day
Venue Service

By Emily Baker, on 30 May 2018Date of Wedding - 26 May 2018

Throughout all of our planning, Aimee and the Lympne Castle team have been amazing! Communication was always easy (which makes things so much less stressful!) and they were more than happy to try to accommodate any requests we had and allowed us to come and view the castle on several occasions to aid with planning. On the day, Aimee was so helpful with the set up, making sure everything was in place as requested and organised all of the final details. This really set my mind at ease and allowed us to truly enjoy our wedding day. She also made sure we had a room in the castle to escape to to have a quiet moment with each other, something that was very much needed at certain points during the day. Throughout the day, Aimee made us feel so at ease and everything was done seamlessly. The castle itself is stunning inside and out. Overall, I cannot reccommend Lympne Castle enough. It really was a truly magical, perfect day!

Memorable & Perfect
Venue Service

By Rich & Sarah, on 20 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Sep 2017

Getting married in the Romney Marsh, of course we had to go for Lympne Castle for our Reception. The panoramic views from the well-kept courtyard, the Great Hall, the beautiful entrance through the gate and towards the stunning castle itself, I could go on forever about how much of a perfect setting this is for a wedding. But not only that, Aimee (our organiser at the Castle) was superb. Super-responsive over email, well organised and expertly navigated us through our special day and all the preparation before hand – including the morning before the big day. All that whilst managing countless weddings at the same time! Can’t thank you enough Aimee. Thank you for making the day so memorable and perfect in every way. Rich & Sarah.

Fabulous Lympne Castle

By Jayne and Dave, on 09 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Sep 2017

We were so impressed with the help from Sue and all staff involved. Truly made our day perfect and for all our family and friends. Everything was attending to from the service, beautiful food, drinks, flowers, chair covers, music and much more. We loved our day and to create our wedding within 3 weeks just shows how professional you all are. Many many thanks Jayne & Dave
