The Norfolk Royale Hotel is the perfect central Bournemouth location for formal and informal wedding breakfasts and intimate family celebrations within stepping distance of 9 churches.

We can offer a complete solution for your wedding as well as hosting the wedding breakfast and evening reception, we are also fully licensed for wedding ceremonies and civil partnerships.

From blessings to renewing your vows, all ceremonies are special to us and we will do everything possible to make sure that you and your guests enjoy a perfect day.

We pride ourselves on the style of our service, standards of care and the attention to detail we deliver, offering a range of facilities and event spaces as well as a choice of 95 well appointed ensuite bedrooms.

Our elegant private garden and walled courtyard is perfect for a Champagne wedding reception and we can even arrange for you to have your ceremony on the beach. Bournemouth Beach is currently the only beach in England where you are able to get married!


The Norfolk Royale Hotel offers a varied choice of function suites, all of which are licensed to hold your ceremony, giving you the opportunity to organise your entire day with us.

Please liaise with your Wedding Coordinator who can advise you of the most suitable function suite for you and your guests.


We’re licensed to host civil partnerships along with civil ceremonies.  Whilst the Civil Partnership Act does not require a ceremony as part of the registration procedure, we can put you in touch with our registrar enabling you to arrange a ceremony that will be meaningful for you.


This is the biggest day of your life.  As part of our service, we offer a dedicated Wedding Coordinator to look after you and offer a calm, efficient service with attention to detail to help you through your wedding from initial enquiry through to the wedding day itself.
