Wedding venues in Dorset offer photo opportunities on the Jurassic Coast and the Dorset Downs. This West Country, Thomas Hardy-infused, county is mostly rural and scattered with traditional villages. Your wedding pictures could be on The Cobb in Lyme Regis, in a vineyard or on the beach, the waves lapping at the hem of the bridal dress. Many wedding venues in Dorset will please couples who love sea views, beautiful sandy beaches and hold their day in enchanting coves that can host both ceremony and reception. Seaside hotels in Bournemouth and Poole, on the Isle of Purbeck and the Isle of Portland, make good options for all budgets and tastes.
