Our Wedding Venue
Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth East Cliff offer a venue for weddings, wedding parties, receptions and civil ceremoniesRead more
Many hotels claim to offer a magnificent setting for your big day. But few – very few – have the wedding wow factor of the Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth East Cliff. Our lovely white-fronted hotel, washed with dazzling coastal light and swaddled by its spectacular pool terrace, rests on the cliff top above a seven-mile stretch of honey-blonde sand and shimmering ocean. Hold the reception here and your photographer will breathe a sigh of relief – capturing beautiful memories of the day just got an awful lot easier!
It’s small surprise we’ve been a favourite venue for brides and grooms for many years. But it’s not just down to our peach of a location. Not at all. Our six light airy event suites – three of them licensed for civil ceremonies – provide a fabulous stage for marriages and receptions. An intimate celebration with family and close friends? Easy. That would be our small but perfectly formed Purbeck Suite. A large buffet and dance for 150? Absolutely. The Garden Suite will accommodate them, with access onto our terrace with its widescreen ocean panorama.
As well as wonderful facilities, the Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth East Cliff has wonderful staff. Our friendly yet highly professional team includes dedicated event coordinators with vast experience of organizing weddings. They’ll provide inspiration, meticulous attention to detail – we know that small individual flourishes make the celebration unique to you – and contact books overflowing with the names of trusted suppliers for everything from florists to photographer to cake makers and entertainers. They work hand-in-hand with our acclaimed kitchen that’s well versed at creating everything from banquets to buffets to brilliant canapés.
Of course we also have 67 tasteful ensuite rooms should your guests wish to stay over and drain the very last drops of fun from your reception. Need more? We’ve also got another 76 at the Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth Carlton, which also has superb function rooms and leisure facilities including a state-of-art gym and Michelle’s Beauty Salon where the bridal party can get professional hair and make up for the big day.

Contact us to chat about your wedding hopes and dreams, or come along to one of our showcases with a red carpet arrival, drinks and canapés, and a fashion show. We look forward to seeing you.

We very much look forward to meeting up with you here at the Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth East Cliff.

We chose East cliff for our wedding reception and could not fault a single thing! All staff were amazingly organised and extremely efficient. The food was simply gorgeous. Stunning views across the sea. The whole hotel felt clean, comfortable and relaxed. Staff were very friendly and couldn’t do enough to help. Thank you so much! We will be back!
