Weymouth Pavilion offers an ideal setting to spend your special day.

 The location next to the Weymouth Beach with Golden Sands and Georgian Buildings surrounded by the sea and impressive Jurassic Coastline cliffs provides stunning views and presents a spectacular backdrop.

On the other side of the venue you will find the picturesque harbour.

Both Ceremonies and Receptions can be held here.



Looking for somewhere a little “different”

for your ceremony?

Why not give yourselves and your guests a truly magical experience by getting married on the Theatre Stage … the possibilities are endless…

There is a stunning starlight backdrop and an abundance of lighting which can be themed to suit the colour scheme of your wedding

The silks are white and can be lit in any colour - they can

all be different if so wished!

More dramatic effects can also be created with any theme possible

….. let your imagination run wild!

If you choose the theatre stage for your ceremony you will be allocated a theatre technician to help you work out possibilities and ideas.

If it’s a ‘Rock n Roll’ wedding you are looking for then we are very happy to oblige.

We can always fill the stage with smoke, flash bright lights and play loud music if that’s what you want!


The Theatre is licensed for  Civil Marriages and Civil Partnerships up to a maximum capacity of 985!!

For small, intimate ceremonies we have the Piano Bar which has stunning views of Weymouth Beach and Harbour.

It has direct access to the Balcony providing a perfect backdrop for your

Wedding Photographs.

Another option for your ceremony is The Ocean Room.

Here you can choose where to hold your ceremony - on the stage or even on the Maple Dance Floor!

The Golden Sands of the Beach and Georgian Esplanade can also be your  backdrop.

The Ocean Room is licensed for  Civil Marriages and Civil Partnerships up to a maximum capacity of 400.

The room lighting can be set to your colour choice and the

PA system can be used for speeches.

We pride ourselves in being flexible.

Menus are not set in stone and can be tailored to your individual requirements.

Children are welcome and food to suit them can be provided; we also

have plenty of highchairs!
