We have designed a select range of wedding packages, with no hidden extras, providing exceptional value and peace of mind. And to make your day truly intimate we offer affordable and exclusive use of the whole hotel allowing you and your guests private use of our stunning conservatory, restaurant and rooms for the duration of your celebration.

The Lord Bute lends itself effortlessly to giving you an unforgettable wedding day tailored just for you and your loved one.

Culinary excellence is something the chefs in our award-winning restaurant know all about; combining locally sourced and seasonal ingredients to create a fusion of traditional and modern culinary delights. Bursting with creativity they will tailor your wedding breakfast to your desire, creating a menu that is impressive and delicious.

What makes us truly unique is that we do not require any pre-ordering from your guests, they simply choose what they want from your personally designed menu, on the day.

Not forgetting the all important wedding tipple, The Lord Bute’s cellar offers a fine variety of specially chosen wines to compliment your menu and budget perfectly.

Nestled between the New Forest and the spectacular Dorset coast, the hotel sits in the original grounds of Highcliffe Castle and is just a stones throw from sandy beaches and dramatic cliff tops. Close to the towns of Christchurch, Bournemouth and Lymington Lord Bute is the perfect South Coast choice for an extraordinary wedding.
