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.

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

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

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.

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

Well, where do we start? David and Antonio - 26th May 2017 We have found Lympne Castle and the people working there to be very professional, helpful and caring towards us on our Big Day. Nothing was too much trouble - we wanted to change the sit down meal to a fork buffet, which they did. The food looked amazing on the day and it was delicious. Yes, the venue was beautiful, but it was the other little touches that counted and made it a true day to remember. We have countless guests who actually told us it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. A lot of them said that this was partly due to the attentiveness of the staff. All in all we wholeheartedly recommend Lympne Castle. They helped make our day truly magical and we are forever grateful for this. Sincerely David and Toni

Dear Sue The very last remaining member of my family has just departed home and have had so many pictures and photos and much feedback on my son's wedding. It has been so momentous for us all. It has been made especially more so, with your guidance and advice throughout the weekend that my family and I spent at Lympne Castle. The atmosphere was charming. The food was amazing. Your attentiveness to detail was noticed and much appreciated. And most of all, your staff must be commended for all their patient and helpful manners towards our guests. Thank you all. With kindest regards Alice

Dear Sue We wanted to write you a quick note to show you our massive appreciation for everything you did in the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself. Not only did you answer hundreds of our questions in the months before but on the day everything ran so smoothly, we knew we were in great hands and didn't have to think about anything on the day as you were working hard away behind the scenes. Even our guests noted how amazing the staff & especially you Sue were on the day. Our wedding day was everything & more that we could have dreamed of at Lympne Castle so thank you so much
