Your Wedding

Yor Hotel

With just 32 bedrooms, the Orchid is the perfect size to book for exclusive use for your wedding. Imagine… the whole place and all of our friendly, attentive staff at your disposal for an elegantly intimate occasion in the company of family, friends and loved ones. In the leafy, elegant environs of Bournemouth’s Eastcliff, a residential wedding at the Orchid makes for a celebration that’s as relaxed as it is unique.

The Food

of Love

Food and drink on the big day are of paramount importance. That’s why, once you’ve booked your wedding at the Orchid , one of the first meetings you’ll have is with Chef. It’s your day, your menu, so our kitchen will be dedicated to providing spectacular cuisine from start to finish. You may already have a clear idea of what you want on the menu – if so, we’ll make it happen. You may have an open mind… in which case we’ll be delighted to guide, inform and inspire your menu choices. Either way, you can be sure that all your wedding food and drink, from canapes to cake, from bucks fizz to bellinis and bolly, will be of the very highest order.

A Beautiful


Newly refurbished and resplendent, the Orchid is a seductive setting for a stylish wedding. Blending the gracious features of the building’s elegant Edwardian heritage with sleek and chic contemporary design, the hotel is at once modern and traditional – cool and classic. As such, it provides a glamorous stage that’s tailor-made for your special day. Juxtaposing chandeliers and polished marble floors with vibrant, contemporary colours, the design concept is daring, dynamic – and delightful.

“From the moment we first set foot in the Orchid, we simply fell in love with the setting – so stylish, so slick… it just felt so right.”

or Impresive

With a civil ceremony license and a choice of indoor and outdoor spaces for your service, the Orchid offers a flexible setting for weddings of all sizes. For more intimate occasions, our smaller function room, with doors opening out onto the courtyard, is the perfect choice. Recently restyled and refurbished from scratch, the room is spacious, airy and effortlessly elegant.

For bigger wedding parties, our larger function room is ideal. Able to accommodate 100 for a sit-down meal and up to 160 for a reception, this impressive space has also been completely redesigned and renovated, providing accommodation that’s as versatile as it is stylish. Our courtyard, complete with enchanting pergola, is an irresistibly romantic setting for a glamorous garden wedding. Also recently renovated, the courtyard retains a grandeur and grace that hark back to the hotel’s origins as one of the first Edwardian villas on Bournemouth’s elegant Eastcliff.
