Weymouth's Historic Sea Fort on the Jurassic Coast

A venue like no other

A Nothe Fort Wedding is a special occasion with the unique setting of this Victorian Fort adding something special to the most important day of your life.

Nothe Fort, now licensed, celebrated its first Civil Ceremony in June 2016 on the terrace overlooking Weymouth Bay.

Our Victorian Fort is situated at the entrance to Weymouth Harbour and is a unique setting with stunning views of Weymouth Bay and the Jurassic Coast. This impressive historic monument can add more than a little extra to your special day.

To get you started we have produced two packages, one for smaller weddings up to 80 in our Fort View Café and one for weddings up to 200 in a marquee erected on the Parade Ground. Whichever package you choose we will tailor it to suit your needs and budget and we are happy to offer you flexibility to suit your requirements.

From a simple to the most elaborate wedding reception we invite you to discuss your requirements with us. We would be only too happy for one of our Wedding Team to show you the Fort and take in the magnificent setting of the Jurassic coast.

The Nothe Fort Artillery Volunteers can be hired to attend your wedding and will design their firing drill based on your requirements. In their authentic period uniforms, they will create an impact with their large cannon and entertain your guests with lots of loud bangs and smoke. This will, and dare I say, make this the perfect place for a shot gun wedding.

We even offer a ghost tour for those who have the nerve to visit our narrow tunnels located in the bowls of the Fort and listen to the eerie stories synonymous with this haunted historic building as you are guided around.

Situated at the entrance to Weymouth Harbour on the end of the Nothe Peninsula, the Fort enjoys views from Weymouth Bay round into Portland Harbour. The parade ground is sheltered offering a large flat area for the erection of a marquee and guests are welcome up on the Ramparts to enjoy the view of the stunning Dorset Coast line. Visit one of Dorset’s most unique Wedding Venues and see for yourself!
