Lulworth Castle Weddings
For nearly 400 years Lulworth Castle has played host to an impressive array of guests and has entertained no less than 7 monarchs. Today, the Castle retains a wealth of history and its natural state provides the most spectacular setting for the special day. Set in extensive parkland, with breathtaking views across the Purbecks, Lulworth will make it a day to remember.
The civil marriage license enables couples to make their vows and celebrate in a splendid setting, or applications can be made for the use of the St Andrews Church or St Mary’s RC Chapel in the grounds next to the Castle.
Available for your exclusive use, the Castle and Grounds make your wedding dreams come true from candlelit romantic to medieval wedding complete with Jousting Knights.
