The Whitehall Hotel is the perfect wedding venue in Bournemouth for a small and intimate wedding reception.
Your Wedding Ceremony:
We are just a few minutes walk from the fantastic licensed marriage facilities at:
- Bournemouth Town Hall Bournemouth Register Office
- The Weddings on the Beach Marquee on the beach to the west of Bournemouth pier
Getting to us from the ceremony could include some alternatives to a limousine:
- Your wedding party could choose to walk through the beautiful Lower gardens, with flower girls, or even a piper leading the way.
- Hire one of the gorgeous vintage buses available in Bournemouth.
- Hire the land-train, a unique experience for most people.
Your Wedding Reception:
We offer you a splendid location overlooking Bournemouth’s award winning gardens. For wedding receptions the hotel has the following facilities:
- The hotel restaurant and the adjoining large lounge are perfect for a wedding for 40-70 guests. They are the grandest public rooms in the building with high ceilings and many period features. The facilities are on the ground floor of the hotel with level access throughout.
- The Lower Garden Room is the hotel’s function room which is on the lower ground floor of the hotel. This room is ideal for a small, intimate wedding of 20-50 people. Unfortunately there is no lift access to this level of the hotel so it would be necessary for everyone to use the staircase – so we regret that this room is not suitable for anyone dependent on a wheelchair. This room is self-contained and private with its own entrance from the hotel terrace, access to the hotel via stairs and it has its own bar and dance-floor.
We offer a simple wedding reception package which you can tailor to your own specific requirements. We are an independent business and we are flexible and open to your suggestions to make your wedding day perfect for you.
We charge a room hire fee which covers the use of our facilities. We provide tables arranged to suit your table plan for the wedding meal with fresh white linen table cloths and napkins presented with simple glasses of fresh flowers. We offer you the perfect blank canvas for you to add your own special touches with your choice of colour theme.
Our wedding reception package includes:
- A drinks reception on arrival at the hotel
- A delicious three course meal followed by coffee
- A glass of bubbly for the toasts
You can then choose to add:
- Wine with the meal
- An evening party with dancing and a buffet
- Overnight accommodation for the bride and groom and a special rate for your friends and family
You can make your own arrangements or we help you to organise:
- Chair covers and sashes
- Flower arrangements, balloons and other decorations
- A cake stand to suit your cake – or even the wedding cake as well!
We know how important this special day is for you. So we will do everything we can to make sure that all the arrangements run smoothly and that your day is perfect.
