Dorset Wedding Venue – The Kings Arms, Christchurch
5th October 2018
A fairy tale wedding venue right in the heart of Christchurch
I first came across the Kings Arms Hotel in 2016, when I was invited to exhibit at one of their upcoming wedding fayres and since then I have had the pleasure of performing at weddings, corporate events and private parties. In fact, for 2018, this has been my second home for weddings!
The hotel itself is split across two sites; the recently refurbished Kings Pavilion and the Kings Priory Wedding Suite. The pavilion itself is licensed to hold wedding ceremonies, civil partnerships and vowel renewals for up to 90 guests and boasts stunning views of the River Avon, bowling green and ruins of the adjacent Christchurch Castle, all of which can be enjoyed with a glass of champagne during the drinks reception! On the other side of the high street, the Kings Priory Wedding Suite plays host to the wedding breakfast and the wedding’s evening celebrations.
Although the hotel is part of the larger Harbour Hotel Group, individuality is maintained. Both the Kings Pavilion and Priory Wedding Suite provide perfect blank canvases for any decor, colour schemes or wedding themes that the wedding couple may have in mind. The transformation of these spaces into beautifully bespoke weddings are achieved by the fabulous team of wedding co-ordinators. Dedicated to ensuring weddings are made as personable as possible, they are always on hand to guide prospective clients through their wedding plans and ideas; either at wedding open days or by appointment.
The venue itself offers several wedding packages to suite a range of budgets, each with varying levels of added extras and finishing touches. To compliment the planning process, a wedding co-ordinator is assigned to each wedding and is on hand to assist the couple throughout their journey; from securing their date, recommending suppliers, creating their menu right through to overseeing the day itself!
Having worked at many wedding venues over the last 10 years or so, I can say with confidence that the Kings Arms Hotel has got everything couples would look for to create their perfect day!
