Bulbury Woods Golf Course in Poole is not only a great place to play golf and practice your swing but it’s also the perfect backdrop for your wedding day. Set amongst ancient woodland with spectacular views over the Purbeck Hills and Poole, Bulbury Woods is a stunningly beautiful wedding venue for a picture perfect special day.
In 2015 we offered a fantastic prize at the Bournemouth Wedding Fayre where one bride could win her wedding day on us. Katie Hollard (now Chappell) was the lucky winner and she had her wedding reception at Bulbury Woods on the 24th April 2016.
Bulbury’s personal wedding service starts direct from the moment you contact us and this was exactly the same for the happy couple. Teaming up with local suppliers, Katie and her husband Danny worked with us to personalise their wedding to their taste. From the cake right down to the chair covers, everything was taken care of by the Bulbury Woods wedding team.
Just 10-minutes away by car is the picturesque village of Lytchett Matravers and the beautiful church where Katie and Danny chose to get married. You can also have your ceremony in the Bulbury Room at Bulbury Woods, suited for both an intimate or more extravagant celebration.
A main course and drink per guest was included in the prize and the happy couple chose to upgrade their package to canapés on arrival plus a delicious 2-course carvery. Should you prefer something a bit different our team are happy to discuss individual requirements and we can offer menus for everything from a buffet to a 3-course sit down meal.
With a dance floor and full facilities for DJ’s or a band, the reception room was transformed ready for the evening reception. Entertaining guests was the fabulous DJ Phil Osborne who played the bride and grooms favourite music, including their first dance.
Nicci Short – Bulbury Woods Golf Course General Manager: “It was really exciting to be able to offer such a big prize of a free wedding reception and when we first spoke to Katie to tell her she had won it was a great feeling! I’m really proud of our facilities and capability to hold such important events and functions for people. The team at Bulbury did a fantastic job and it was a pleasure to host Katie and Danny’s wedding.”
Katie commented: “It was an amazing venue and the setting with the clubhouse and grounds made for a perfect day. Nicky, Dylan the chef and all the staff were really helpful. Nicky made it really easy to go through the details of what we wanted and to ensure it exactly met our dreams for the day. We would recommend Bulbury Woods to anyone planning a wedding. The venue made our wedding day very special and has left us with lots of beautiful memories to cherish.”
