A unique, award-winning and truly outstanding wedding venue located right on the golden sands of West Cliff Beach in Bournemouth, Beach Weddings Bournemouth offers the only place in England and Wales where you can have your civil ceremony right on the beach itself. Have exclusive use of the beach, unwind and relax and host your wedding breakfast and evening reception for up to 200 on the sands too!

Just a short stroll from the pier, or ideal for arrival via the Edwardian funicular railway, here you can tie the knot under the ivory Wedding Hut, then the flexible and accommodating team can arrange a large or intimate marquee, depending on your numbers. Enjoy catering in the form of beach BBQs, freshly cooked fish and chips, buffets with local fishes and meats, and homemade afternoon tea and so much more.


The venue was created in 2011 by Melanie Kiani, an award-winning local wedding and event planner. She wanted to bring a unique venue to Bournemouth with a very relaxed and fun atmosphere, great food, drinks and amazing service - all things she is truly passionate about!

Whilst Melanie is still very hands on, she is backed up by an amazing team who are there to support you at every step of your booking and during the planning of your celebration. On the day of your wedding, you will have a Wedding Manager running things for you, with a team of highly trained staff to look after you and your guests all day.


Although primarily (and ideally) an open-air location, Beach Weddings Bournemouth do have sturdy purpose-built marquees available for wedding use, so no matter what the English weather decides to get up to, you and all of your guests will be protected.

One marquee is built right up to the wedding hut (where you'll be signing the register) and the long side consists of windows, so you'll still have the beautiful coastline view. Of course, if the sun shines, the side can be rolled up and opened right onto the sand.

A second marquee is always erected to accommodate your drinks reception, and you can follow on for a relaxed wedding breakfast, and later in the evening, a beach-party.


Beach Weddings Bournemouth are truly dedicated to their food, and have an in-house catering team that have put together a gorgeous choice of menus, including a barbeque, fresh fish and chips, stunning sharing platters, buffets and, of course, English afternoon tea! Sourcing fresh and fine ingredients, the catering team will work to your needs.
