Far away from the busy hubbub of England's big cities lies the peaceful and rural county of Dorset. Here, you can bury your feet in golden sand in the seaside resort town of Bournemouth, find new treasures in the market town of Bridport or explore the hilltop town of Shaftesbury. If you want to match the joy and bliss of your wedding with some of England's most beautiful and dramatic landscapes, then head to the Jurassic Coast, where you'll gaze upon cosy bays, stark cliffs, and spraying surf.

Dorset may have a reputation as a quiet county, but you'll find bustling life, busy hotels, and many stately manors among the rolling hills here. Every town and village has character and plenty of charm to spare. If you want picturesque and rustic for your wedding day, you can't go wrong with Dorset.

Exploring Wedding Venues in Dorset

Dorset wedding venues are some of the best-kept secrets in the United Kingdom. Many of them are made extraordinary by the beautiful landscapes and panoramic views. For example, you can host your ceremony in a cosy hotel that overlooks Poole Harbor, or a Tudor mansion surrounded by rolling hills. Many restaurants, town halls, and boutique hotels offer tantalizing glimpses of the Jurassic Coast, which means you can get married right next to a World Heritage Site!

Dorset wedding venues can handle wedding parties big and small. Bournemouth, in particular, offers larger hotels that can provide superb amenities to your entire wedding party, including luxury spa services for the happy bride. Stately manor homes are the perfect foil, offering intimate ceremonies and highly personalized attention from staff.

The wedding of your dreams is waiting in Dorset, but before you start booking venue tours, check in with your wedding budget planner!
