Ceremony & Reception Venue

Wedding photography by Brighton Photographer Emma Lucy

A beautiful and exclusive wedding location on West Cliff Beach, Bournemouth, for your ceremony and wedding breakfast!

The perfect location for a laid back, yet elegant and classy wedding, held by a venue with high, and excellent standards. This is a very unique venue with unusual features, and will be fantastic for your wedding photographs and has the added ‘Wow’ factor for your guests. The exclusive full day hire of the venue will allow you and your guests to enjoy a full day of wedding celebrations (with your civil ceremony taking place at any time between 10am and 1pm) with the option to continue on to an evening reception within walking distance, should you wish to do so (however, making the most of this stunning beach location is of utmost importance, and an earlier wedding, followed by an afternoon wedding breakfast will allow ample time for you and your guests to enjoy the day).

The outdoor venue allows us a great deal of space to play with and is keeping with the rustic, chic event to bring your guests to life, and allow them to truly relax and experience a very fun and unique atmosphere.

The driftwood archway for your ceremony, and added natural décor is the ideal base to begin planning your special day upon, whilst keeping with the natural surroundings and adding in romantic touches. The smell of the delicious BBQ Buffet on the beach enhances the rustic and natural feeling of the day, with the elegance and sophistication of canapes and a cocktail reception, with flowing cocktail jugs, beer buckets, wine, champagne and the non-alcoholic homemade lemonade and elderflower presse.
