One of the most common questions we get asked is “Where can we do everything ourselves?” This is due to budget constraints but also so that people can have choice and put a personal stamp on their special day!

Wedding Planner Dorset

We’ve put together a list of Dorset venues, although not exhaustive, where you can bring in your own catering, bar and other suppliers to make the day your own! These are places where South Coast Weddings can provide On the Day Coordination, so you can enjoy the day you’ve planned without rushing around setting up and sorting everything out!

Of course, if you have your own land or are looking to hire some land and a marquee, we can point you in the right direction.

Branksome Dene Room, Sandbanks – This venue is all about location as you can step right out on to the beach, making it ideal for photographs.

Canford Cliffs Village Hall, Canford Cliffs, Poole – Another great location with a large hall.
