The Kings Arms provides the perfect backdrop for weddings

The idyllic Dorset wedding venue comprises The Kings Pavilion, The Bowling Green and the split-level Kings Priory Suite, decorated in a New England style. All locations boast classic untouched elegance while matching any colour scheme or theme.

Ceremonies and receptions can occur in the Kings Pavilion with 96 people. The beautiful restored pavilion opens onto a tranquil bowling green with highly maintained landscapes – perfect for garden games and entertainment. The space offers an outside airstream bar and an inside bar for drink receptions. While guests enjoy the grounds, Christchurch Quay and The Norman House are just a short stroll away, which makes for stunning and unique wedding photographs. The Pavilion and Bowling Green are available until 8 pm for barbecues or outdoor dining rather than traditional wedding breakfasts.

Alternatively, the Upper Priory Suite is located in the upstairs suite of the Kings Priory, with the River Avon and the bowling green as a backdrop through the vast windows as pairs exchange vows. Continue the celebrations in the Kings Priory Suite with 120. The split-level space offers a downstairs bar and dancefloor for drink receptions and evening celebrations, while upstairs can seat up to 96 guests for wedding breakfasts.

Set in the main house, The Private Dining Room is the perfect space for more intimate ceremonies with 48 nearest and dearests. With glass doors over the main hotel entrance, dried floral bouquets on the ceiling, unique art pieces and colourful soft furnishings – it’s also ideal for small receptions with 36 loved ones.
