Beach & Coastal Wedding Venues in Dorset

When it comes to selecting a coastal wedding venue, Dorset is an easy first choice. Dorset is home to the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site with almost one hundred miles of rugged coastline dotted with stunning Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous rock formations. The rest of the county has plenty of other beautiful and ancient sites to visit during your stay, but the seaside itself is the place to say “I do.”

Choosing Your Wedding Venue

The coast of Dorset provides a range of romantic properties where you can tie the knot, from beach hotels to historic castles. For a contemporary setting, head to The Cumberland Hotel, where luxurious event spaces meet breathtaking sea views. This upscale accommodation is perched above miles of golden sand beaches and has comprehensive wedding packages. For something more retro, nowhere is more impressive than Highcliffe Castle. This gothic castle, with its light-filled wintergarden, red brick dining room, and a great hall adorned with glittering stained glass, is something out of a fairytale.

Things To Do in Dorset

On the South Coast you will find numerous activities to amuse you and your guests throughout the wedding weekend. Top of the list is hiking along the Jurassic Coast to discover fossils and staggering rock formations, but we also recommend a trip to the Dark-Sky Reserve in Cranborne Chase AONB. This area of outstanding natural beauty is one of only 17 dark sky regions in the world and is an astounding place to stargaze with your beloved.
