Are newly engaged and abuzz about planning your special day? Perhaps you’re all set but always looking for some last-minute personal touches to put a stamp on your wedding? Or maybe you’re in the throes of your research, keen to check out every option to make sure you’ve booked the very best. Maybe you’re happy enough to tag long to a wedding fair as long as it’s free to get in with a free drink on arrival?
Dedicated wedding planners
Whatever your approach to wedding planning, the Open Day at The Cumberland Hotel on Bournemouth’s East Overcliff ticks many of these boxes. It’s open from 12 noon to 4pm (not too early, not too late!) with free entry for everyone, a goody bag and a glass of fizz or bottle of lager. Their very own wedding coordinators will be on hand bursting with ideas and ready to show you around the hotel’s glamorous facilities.
Tailor-made special days
The Cumberland is part of the town’s Oceana Resort and sits proudly on the East Overcliff gazing out across miles of golden sand and the English Channel beyond. Its style is striking and unique, Miami-inspired with sprawling lido deck, green palm trees and effortlessly chic décor. Wedding menu packages are customisable with a medley of classic dishes and drinks and modern trends to select from. The venue can help you throw an event for 40 up to 200 people and includes a full wedding planning service, use of a cake stand and knife (you’ll be surprised how many don’t!), hotel linen and napkins, toastmaster services and a four-poster bridal room.
Pick a venue
You have a variety of venues to consider as the venue for your wedding celebrations, from the dazzling Oceana Suite with club lighting, vast chandelier and room for up to 90 guests, the classy, mirrored Mirabelle Suite, which accommodates 200+ and the Red Door, a separate events space within the Mirabelle for more intimate occasions.
You could also reserve the Lido Deck with its palms and poolside seating – ideal for a hog roast, barbecue or drinks reception. And, of course, the hotel’s prestigious 2 AA Rosette Ventana Grand Café for a small gathering of 10-30 people or an evening reception of 120.
