Safari Wedding at Port Lympne – Part II

Unique Safari Wedding Inspiration for Animal Lovers

Not a fan of the cookie-cutter traditional English wedding? Want a day that you and your guests will be talking about for years to come? Or perhaps you’d love a destination wedding style but without the hassle of overseas travel? If any of that sounds familiar, a Port Lympne wedding may be for you. If you haven’t seen Part I of this shoot yet, you can check it out here.

Supporting the Aspinall Foundation

Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve is a wild animal park in the heart of the Kent countryside. If you and your partner are animal lovers, I literally could not think of a better place for you to marry. Port Lympne supports The Aspinall Foundation who work to protect endangered animals and their habitats, so holding your wedding here helps fund these fantastic projects. How amazing is that?!

Safari Experience for Destination Wedding Feels

The rooms at Port Lympne are beautifully decorated with paintings of wild animals from floor to ceiling, bringing the “wild” to your wedding breakfast. 

But the best part is of course the safari! Port Lympne offers Kent’s only safari experiences, taking you and your guests to explore giraffes, rhinos and so much more in their grounds. What a unique way of entertaining your guests during the drinks reception! There are many reasons why I love Port Lympne, and I’d love to photograph a real wedding here.

As always this shoot couldn’t happen without the vision of Sammy at Amore Workshops and the brilliant team involved in putting it together. Full supplier credits at the end of this post!
