The Stunning Lulworth Castle and Courtyard
When little girl’s talk about the Wedding they will have as a grown up they almost exclusively say two things –
Number 1 – I want to look like a Princess
Number 2 – I want to get married at a castle.
Whilst Lulworth Castle can make no promises about number 1 it can provide the Castle Wedding of every little girl’s dreams and still offer you even more.
Lulworth Castle’s aesthetic appeal actually begins before you even set foot inside the grounds itself, the scenic drive through undulating hills with hints of sea views are something in themselves and upon arrival at the main gate you are greeted with a grand sweeping driveway bordered with well-kept lawns and greenery.
The drive up to the castle itself passes-by Lulworth Courtyard which in itself is something to behold with its 18th Century Architecture and light and airy rooms – this can be used as a unique wedding reception venue with the capacity for 80 guests to have a sit down meal with the option of a marquee for additional seating.
But it is the Castle that is the real jewel in the crown of the Lulworth Estate, the visually stunning venue set in 1000 acres of unspoilt parkland with unrivalled views over the Dorset countryside out towards the sea.
As they say that a picture speaks a thousand words it seems only fitting that I shouldn’t even attempt to explain the beauty of the venue and simply put in this.
The exterior of the castle has changed very little since it was built in early 17th Century, the inside however was unfortunately gutted by a huge fire in 1929 and although this is a great tragedy that such history was lost in does come somewhat as a double-edged sword now as this has now allowed the ground floor of the Castle to be rather open-planned with large rooms each flowing into the next.
The dining area has space for a sit-down meal for an impressive 130 people, this can then be increased to 150 for the remainder of the night.
The Wedding Team at Lulworth Castle are truly second-to-none and really pull out all possible stops to make your day perfect, they understand fully that each and every wedding they hold is unique and use their experience and great knowledge of the industry to provide you with the very best there is to offer.
Having a Wedding Magician at Lulworth Castle
The excellent team at Lulworth Castle have garnered a list of the very best Wedding Suppliers in the area and it is a list that I am very proud to be included upon, the estate has hired me on a couple of of occasions recently for their very own celebrations at the Castle which I have to say is an honour.
I perform at several weddings at Lulworth Castle every year and it is one of my very favourite places to perform.
The typical structure to a Lulworth Castle Wedding lends itself perfectly for me to perform at any stage of the day.
In the pictures below I can be seen performing directly after the ceremony up until the wedding breakfast began, this was my 2 hour “gold package”, this allowed Emma and Rob to go around the estate to have their photos taken whilst I kept all their guests happy and entertained but still allowed them to enjoy some magic themselves – I finished my performance with a special trick for the Emma and Rob in front of the entire wedding party.
At other weddings at Lulworth I’ve performed through the wedding breakfast, between the wedding breakfast and the evening reception and of course at the evening reception itself – all with great success!
