Your Post Lockdown Wedding at Marsham Court Hotel


Since March last year, there have been severe restrictions on weddings — when they’ve been allowed at all. However, the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown includes first relaxing and then getting rid of the restrictions. So beat the rush and book your post-lockdown wedding at Marsham Court Hotel.

A Bright Future for Weddings at Marsham Court Hotel

Until the later part of May, weddings are restricted to fifteen guests, including the couple but excluding those attending in a professional capacity, such as the celebrant. However, the next stage of the roadmap will see this increased to thirty from the 17th May.

On 21st June, the plan is to get rid of most lockdown restrictions. Again, this depends on continued success in the fight against the virus, but there’s every reason to hope that this will go to timetable.

This means Marsham Court Hotel will be able to offer a full range of weddings — and we anticipate high demand. However, if you still have good reason to remain cautious, the adaptations we’ve made over the past year will help us to deliver a spectacular but safe event for your big day.

Marsham Court Hotel Is Perfect for Weddings

An elegant Georgian hotel on the seafront overlooking Bournemouth Bay and its award-winning beaches, Marsham Court Hotel is the perfect venue for your wedding, whether you’re looking for a lavish event or an intimate celebration.

Tastefully modernised inside, it offers a wide range of suites for your ceremony and reception, with spectacular sea-views. Or, if you want the atmosphere of an outdoor wedding, our beautiful garden wedding pagoda provides a stunning setting.

Whether you’re looking for a sit-down feast or a buffet, our chef and his team will produce high-quality refreshments to fit your guests’ needs, while our staff always go the extra mile to ensure your event is a success.

And, if it’s as important for the four-legged members of your family to be present as the two-legged, Marsham Court Hotel is delighted to welcome well-behaved dogs. We have several rooms specially adapted for canine comfort.

Marsham Court Weddings Can Always Be Safe

Even after the restrictions have been lifted, safety will continue to be an issue. At Marsham Court, we’ve worked hard since March last year to adapt the hotel to make social distancing easy, and we’ll work with you to help keep your guests safe. In addition, we’ve further improved our already high standards of cleaning and hygiene, and don’t intend to relax these.
