Tom & Sarah’s Love Story

Sarah and Tom got married at the Harbour Heights Hotel in August 2013. Here is their story…

“We chose the Harbour Heights for its amazing views over the harbour; it simply takes your breath away. We come from Chelmsford in Essex, but visit Tom’s family regularly in Poole and have always loved walking along Sandbanks and around the harbour – another reason to choose this gorgeous venue.



We couldn’t have wished for more beautiful weather on our wedding day – sunshine and blue skies. Our wedding started with afternoon tea upon arrival, a great touch as our guests could catch up with friends whilst filling their boots with prosecco, tea and scones! The ceremony was outside on the private terrace, which looked spectacular in the sunshine. Guests soaked up the view.

For our wedding breakfast we chose a light summer menu, with our wedding cake for dessert followed by a divine cheeseboard and sweet cart in the evening.

We can safely say the Harbour Heights did not disappoint and delivered a well-executed menu. After dinner, guests danced the night away, had fun in the photo lounge or enjoyed drinks on the heated outside terrace.

We decided to make a weekend of our wedding, staying the night before to enjoy wine and dinner. The day after, we treated our guests to a BBQ on the Sandbanks Hotel’s beach terrace. We would like to thank our dedicated wedding coordinators and the friendly staff who helped us create an amazing wedding weekend – it truly was the best day of our lives!”

Thank you Sarah and Tom for sharing your special day with us.
