It was a perfect day!
We decided to have our wedding at this venue which went without a hitch on the 19th Oct. Kat and all the staff at Marsham court were very friendly and helpful from lead up to the day before, allowing us to set up early all the way through the wedding day itself. It was a perfect day and we were so lucky with the weather. We would definitely recommend this venue for any special occasion. Thank you so much for helping us have a wonderful day!

Our wedding was held at the Marsham Court Hotel on the 12th October 2019, Our ceremony was held in the under the stairs room and reception in the Ballroom and Den, the hotel set both of the rooms up perfectly and everything was just beautiful. The sit down meal was absolutely wonderful and all dietary requirement were catered for, nothing was to much trouble, and the wine was perfect, as was every little detail of our day. The evening reception was also just perfect, the staff could not do enough for us and everything was just as we wanted it to be. We would recommend this hotel to anybody very highly for any event, but especially weddings. Every member of staff from start to finish were friendly attentive and polite, and carried out our every request with a smile. Such a professional team, and The wedding co-ordinator Kat Tegg was just wonderful, as was the chief and all the kitchen staff, waiting staff ,bar staff, cleaning staff, receptionists and Managers .

Apart from its wonderful location overlooking the Sea, on Bournemouth's East Cliff, the Marsham Court Hotel has much to recommend it for Weddings, and other Functions. Large enough to host small intimate gatherings of up to 30 people or large groups of hundreds, it offers a variety of bedroom styles and prices. We have just held our Wedding there, for the accommodation and the main meal (the actual ceremony was in the wonderful Russell-Cotes Art gallery, directly opposite the Hotel) and the teams dealing with both the reservations and the function itself were incredibly helpful and enthusiastic. They went out of their way to assist with our requirements, and the Wedding package we choose was very good value. The food was excellent, the general staff always friendly and willing to help, and the atmosphere very relaxed. We deliberately booked all our Guests into the bedrooms with both sea-views and balconies, and were blessed with 3 days of glorious sunshine. We had room 329, a spacious, well-decorated room with a large bath/shower, and a self-contained balcony with table and chairs. Fabulous.

Nothing was too much trouble!
From beginning to end Kat looked after us. All of the staff at Marsham Court were exceptionally kind to us and all our guests. They treated us as if we were the only wedding of the year with exceptional care and attention to detail. Rooms were rearranged as if by magic. Nothing was too much trouble. The venue was perfect for us as well. The Ballroom is one of the best in Bournemouth. We enjoyed a mix of Ballroom and Disco dancing. We went for the Cream Tea option. The hotel were able to accommodate Gluten free, Dairy Free, Soya free, Nut Free and Vegetarian options. Nothing too much trouble. We were very happy that we chose to get married at Marsham Court Hotel.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

The best wedding ever here at the hotel, was probably one back in March 2017. It was a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory themed wedding! It was so hard not to eat any of the thousands of sweets and chocolates that they brought in!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Listen to one another's ideas! Lots of people have "my day, my way" ringing through their head! However your partner might have a few really good ideas up their sleeves which you haven't thought of!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Whenever the best man or bridesmaids have a surprise dance/song for the bride and groom which they knew nothing about... But I did!!!!! I have to always keep things a secret, but it's worth it!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Beautiful, Romantic, Exciting, Stunning, Personal

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The 5 minute walk down to the lovely Bournemouth Beach!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Does the groom count when he dressed up as Willy Wonka???

What’s your favourite canapé?

Cocktail Sausages in a Honey & Mustard Glaze! YUM!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

What is your venue's most unique feature?

No detail that you provide to us goes a miss. We really do everything we can to meet with your dream ideas! And we have fun with that too!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

I always get a bit teary during the ceremony! When meeting couples we have a good relationship and I get to know you both so I feel like a friend sat at the back of the wedding with my happy tears! I always am proud of my team during weddings, because its the couples kind words at the end thanking them all!
