Lulworth Castle in East Dorset, situated half way between Wareham and Weymouth on the Jurassic Coast, is most couple's idea of a perfect fantasy castle. Built in 1610 as a hunting lodge the castle is set in 1,000 acres of rolling park and woodland, a stunning country house at the heart of a large estate.
The castle is licensed for both Civil Marriage and Civil Partnership ceremonies, very nearby is the stunning Chapel of St Mary's reputed to have some of the finest architecture of any building in Dorset and within easy walking distance of the castle (just 300 yards).
The exterior and interior of Lulworth Castle lend themselves perfectly to events and weddings. The imposing front facade with it's grand entrance and wide stone staircase makes a great location for a large group image of all the wedding guests. Inside the castle there is banqueting room to cater for 80-120 guests for the wedding breakfast.
During the evening wedding reception the castle can be separated into two distinct areas, one side of the main entrance is often set aside for dancing with opposite hall kept with seating for guests to chat and relax. Up lighters set into the wooden floor can be overlaid with coloured film to create a funky ambience, transforming the castle interior to give a totally different night time feel.
Each year, usually in February, there's a Lulworth Castle Wedding Fair so you can visit the wedding venue and meet the preferred suppliers. Lulworth Castle usually picks only one or two suppliers from each category so it's also worth checking suppliers who do not exhibit at the wedding fair.
Lulworth Castle is regularly open to the public and vistors may tour around the grounds and the inside the historic castle, when an event is booked the castle and grounds are closed to general visitors so it is worth checking ahead before setting off.
