Sandy Toes

If you’ve always dreamt of a beachfront wedding, the Sandbanks Hotel has it all. Situated on the world-famous Sandbanks Peninsula, it’s just a few steps from terrace to sand. A fantastic opportunity for you and your guests to spill out onto the beach for photos.

With panoramic sea views stretching to the white cliffs of Old Harry Rocks, this is a dramatic and romantic venue for your big day. Plus an enthusiastic team including wedding planners, who currently hold the Dorset Wedding Supplier’s ‘Wedding Planners of Year Award’, are here to help ensure that your special day is a success.

Take your vows overlooking the sea with the ocean as your witness.

Comfortably seating 100 guests and with panoramic sea view windows that flood your ceremony with bright natural light.

Terrace Blessing

With the beach in reach, we have to make the most out of this picturesque setting.

Following your ceremony, the Sandbanks Hotel offers a unique chance to have an alfresco blessing on our beach terrace.

Wedding Breakfast

The Compass Suite has everything a beach loving couple could wish for. This delightful conservatory-style room has stunning panoramic views of the coastline plus access to a private terrace where couples can enjoy a drinks reception.

The suite will comfortably seat 100 guests, with a chic fireplace in the centre to add an ambient glow to your wedding breakfast.

Our highly acclaimed brigade of chefs at the Sandbanks Hotel offers a superb selection of wedding menus to appeal to all palates. Including fresh seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes, plus (as we’re by the beach) sizzling BBQ options.

Evening Function

As the sun sets over the sea, the Compass Suite is a magical space for your first dance.

Party guests can spill out onto the private beach terrace for drinks outside in the sea air. There’s plenty of room for a DJ or Band inside the room, with a private bar and ambient fire place.

Evening celebrations at the Compass Suite can hold 150 guests.
