Classic hotels such as the Connaught Hotel and the Cumberland Hotel can offer a full wedding planning service, while boutique hotels such as the Green House, which prides itself on sustainability and the Cottonwood Boutique Hotel which has a vintage style offer something more quirky. Other hotels boast amazing sea views including the Bournemouth Highcliffe Marriott and the Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth Carlton, while the Chine can even offer a space to entertain younger wedding guests. If you want a smaller, more intimate venue then the Liston Hotel or the Yenton would be ideal, while Hotel Miramar can even offer the chance to get married outside.
