Weddings

The historic Bournemouth Carlton, BW Signature Collection by Best Western provides a stunning location for a wedding by the sea.

Choose from seven event rooms for up to 200 guests. Five are licensed for civil ceremonies, meaning you can hold your entire celebration under one roof. You can even enjoy a sea view when you tie the knot as our garden gazebo is licensed to host ceremonies for up to 50 guests. We only hold one wedding at a time, so you're guaranteed our undivided attention throughout the day.

Our professional and friendly team of experienced wedding co-ordinators will guide you through the whole planning process from start to finish.

We have a variety of rooms for guests staying over, at a discounted rate, from double rooms for couples to self-catering apartments for families. We save the best for the bride and groom, of course, who'll get a beautiful suite with a sea view.

If you're on a tight budget, you can save by holding your wedding outside of the peak summer season.
