Lulworth Castle is a spectacular wedding venue in Wareham, Dorset. Built to entertain royalty, this stunning 17th-century castle is set at the heart of the family-owned Lulworth Estate in extensive rolling parkland, with sea views and a beautiful church and private chapel on the grounds. Through the centuries, Lulworth Castle has played host to countless guests, including seven monarchs. Today, it offers a breathtakingly beautiful backdrop for your wedding in a truly iconic setting on the Jurassic Coast.

Facilities and Capacity

Available for exclusive hire, the magical Lulworth Castle is a blank and flexible canvas waiting for you to create your perfect day. Choose a civil ceremony in the castle, or take your vows in its ancient church or historic private chapel. Then eat, drink and celebrate the happiest day of your life in this magical and timeless place. The beauty of a Lulworth Castle wedding is the flexibility of the space available to you. Let your imagination run wild as you create your dream wedding from the floristry, lighting, and styling, to the music, furniture and your unforgettable arrival up the sweeping drive. The raw textures of the partially restored interior of Lulworth Castle create a charming canvas on which to express your personality. After the ceremony, it’s time to raise a glass and celebrate the joining together of two families. This is when Lulworth Castle comes into its own as you and your guests laugh, dance and celebrate late into the night.

Services Offered

Choose Lulworth Castle as your venue and our nominated caterers, choice of two, will support you to realise your vision - whether you choose one of their proven set-ups or want to create something completely new and different. From the menu and flowers to the furniture, glassware and styling to the lighting, music, dancing, entertainment and drinks, it really is your day, your way. After the reception, your guests can retire to one of the many luxury holiday cottages on the Estate. With a choice of thatched cottage retreats with hidden sun terraces, traditional farm buildings with swimming pools, and period properties in rolling parkland, there is something to suit all tastes.
