Standing right on the water’s edge, this unusual fan-shaped castle has superb views of shimmering seascapes across Portland Harbour, making it a magical setting for summer celebrations in marquees. Now boasting a lovely contemporary garden, the castle can accommodate civil wedding ceremonies in its Old Kitchen – which can be warmed by a real fire in winter – and in an Upper Hall.

The day from start to finish was fantastic and couldn’t have been achieved without the extremely hard work and fine attention to detail from yourself and members of staff. A wonderful setting and a perfect day.
