We love being the recommended Lulworth Castle wedding photographers.
This exclusive wedding venue in the Dorset countryside is less than 11 miles from our office and overlooks 1000 acres of unspoilt parkland and the Jurassic Coast. The panoramic view from the castle roof has to be one of our favourite in the world.
The early 17th-century mock castle was originally used as a hunting lodge. It has been in (and out) of the hands of the Weld family since 1641. Unfortunately the Castle was gutted by fire in 1929 but has been now lovingly restored into a jaw dropping wedding venue and museum (and of course the location for Rob da Bank’s Camp Bestival).
The Castle is stunning alone, but with the open-minded staff, the grounds and the sea view as well, it just knocked our socks off.

Wedding Options at Lulworth Castle
Lulworth Castle offers a range of options for a couple considering a wedding in Dorset. As the recommended Lulworth Castle wedding photographers we have seen religious ceremonies, civil marriages and symbolic blessings.
Within a stone’s throw of the castle itself are the lovely 15th century St. Andrew’s Church complete with its own huggable vicar. Hidden away in the grounds is an 18th century chapel for the perfect catholic wedding ceremony. The courtyard within castle grounds also offers outdoor wedding ceremonies.

Lulworth- The Perfect Wedding Destination
The beautiful stone castle building is perfect for most sizes of wedding, it can accommodate wedding ceremonies for up to 130 guests and sit down wedding breakfasts for 150.
Lulworth itself offers a range of accommodation for wedding couples and guests alike, making it a perfect destination wedding venue.
As Lulworth Castle wedding photographers we have spent many a wedding morning shooting bridal preparation photographs in a luxury hotel room or gorgeous holiday home overlooking the sea. Limestone Hotel, Durdledoor Holiday Cottages, and Rudds (formally Bishops Hotel) are all particularly stunning.
Lulworth Castle is a stunning venue that encapsulates the fairy tale wedding. When we work there with Tom & Murray and the castle really showed its versatility. The castle is stunning and the interior extremely flexible. It was a pleasure to film there.

The Lulworth Castle Weddings Team
Amongst Lulworth Castle’s many strengths are its amazing resident wedding management team. Behind the scenes, yet on hand when needed at every wedding they have perfected the art of running a wedding. The fluid nature of each of our Lulworth Castle weddings is testament to their skills.
The Castle is a fabulous venue for fireworks, the front balcony makes a perfect viewing platform for the guests and the Castle looks stunning as it is lit up by the fireworks. There is plenty of space and no restrictions in terms of size or noise, nothing to limit our enthusiasm for spectacular fireworks displays!
