At Sunninghill Weddings venue in Dorchester our goal is to provide a wedding venue for either a wedding ceremony or wedding reception (most often both) that is ‘dressed for the occasion’. Whilst the majority of our wedding couples this summer have been delighted with the venue as presented on the day, during the 2018 summer wedding season we have seen a growing trend of wedding couples personalising the venue in ways that are extremely personal to them and their family – and we love this trend!
At Christie and Adam’s wedding the couple opted to dress the chivari chair with a mocha chiffon chair cover tied with pin-broches, many of which had been donated by family and friends. The couple also hand made marmalade wedding favours according to grandad's secret recipe to honour his memory.

Throughout Katie and Adam's relationship the couple had collected heart decorations and, over time, had amassed a fantastic collection which were used throughout the venue on their wedding day. Individual hearts adorned the aisle chairs for their wedding ceremony and a wishing tree twinkled with a heart collection made by the wedding party, each of whom had made a heart specifically for Adam and Katie’s wedding.

Elopement Celebrations at Sunninghill Weddings
During our 2018 wedding summer season here at Sunninghill Weddings venue in Dorchester we have also been privileged to host a number of ‘Elopement Celebrations’ – couples who have chosen to marry abroad and hold a ‘good old knees up’ on their return with family and friends. We noticed that photographs played a key role in these parties: photographs of key loved ones unable to share in the celebrations on the night and also pictures of the couples wedding ceremony abroad. Lisa and Lee were the first of our elopement couples celebrating their wedding abroad here at Sunninghill Weddings venue in Dorchester in June earlier this year.
Your Day: Your Way at Sunninghill Weddings
It is individual choice to personalise a wedding venue and here at Sunninghill Weddings venue in Dorchester we see each wedding as unique: we are extremely proud of the flexibility we are able to offer our wedding couples and we are excited to hear about our wedding couple’s plans for 2019 and 2020.
