I cannot recommend the Pavilion enough and we fully intend to book their services again ...
My husband and I got married on June 5th this year after Covid postponed our wedding from the year before and what a day was had by all. We cannot thank Phil and Jane enough for all the hard work and effort that they put into ensuring that we had a special day to treasure forever at Weymouth Pavilion...especially as our wedding was during a time the pavilion was also acting as a hub for Covid vaccines. Any concerns or queries we had were dealt with promptly and communication during the build up was on point we never had any worries for long as Jane and Phil made sure we had all the information we needed and went above and beyond to accommodate all of our needs and requests including communication of our booking of a celebrity wedding singer and ensuring things went smoothly with the entertainment remaining a secret till the very last minute. On the day everything ran incredibly smoothly our day was perfect in a beautiful setting (including a amazing outside sea view for photos) with beautiful scenery the ocean room is very spacious and Jane was present with her lovely and bubbly personality ensuring all our guests ...and myself and my new husband were catered for and well looked after all throughout the day. I don't think anything more could've been done that would've made the day any more special and a lot of that was down to the team at the pavilion for all their hard work and effort into giving us the best day ever . I cannot recommend the Pavilion enough and we fully intend to book their services again so we can have a big party to include all of our friends and family who were unable to attend due to Covid restrictions and I've no doubt when we do that all will be done to ensure another memorable day will be had by all.

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

A bride had a photo of her late father in a heart shaped locked in her bridal bouquet, it was as though her father was walking her down the aisle. It was a very poignant moment for me personally as my father had passed away 9 months before I got married - I could feel her emotion.
