This waterside venue provides a host of options for a big day with a difference. Overlooking Holes Bay in Poole Harbour it’s ideal for a maritime or coastal-themed wedding. Licensed for ceremonies, there’s a choice of attractive rooms with stunning views over the bay. The ground-floor Waterfront Suite has direct access to the terrace bordering the harbour; great for post-vows drinks and photos. The suite can accommodate up to 200 ceremony guests, 150 for the wedding breakfast and an extra 50 for the evening do. For more intimate affairs, the second-floor Harbour View Suite boasts its own private balcony so you can soak up the atmosphere and watch the boats sail past. For those looking to stay over, the venue also benefits from 60 harbourview double bedrooms. What’s more there’s a complimentary wedding-night stay for the bride and groom with full English breakfast the following morning.
