Wedding Venue Lyme Regis


The Marine Theatre is the most beautiful fully licensed wedding venue in Lyme Regis, right on the seafront on the Dorset coast.  As well as marriages, couples can hold their wedding receptions here with seating for 220, 120 eating, and 330 standing for evening receptions. This is a unique Dorset wedding venue, being surrounded by 95 miles of truly stunning Jurassic coastline. The theatre boasts magnificent sea views from over Lyme Bay, and a balcony bar.

“We had an absolutely fantastic time at the Marine. The staff were so kind and helpful which really made everything run smoothly.” – Kate, Bride, December 2016

The whole Marine team worked perfectly together, always friendly and smiling! Nothing was ever too much trouble.” – Gill, Mother of the Bride, August 2016

On the ground floor, the auditorium has ample space to seat up to 123 wedding guests for food. Please see our wedding table layout options here. The stage provides an excellent space for speeches as well as live music, and the theatre has a wooden semi-sprung floor ideal for dancing. We have a roster of 10 wedding bands and DJs, and three catering partners. We provide technical and lighting engineers too.

There are two bars with an extensive selection of wine, local beers and real ale and a full cocktail menu; providing a space for wedding guests to drink, chat, and enjoy the party in the auditorium below. There is also an outside bar balcony with stunning views overlooking the sea and coastline for your exclusive use.

We look forward to welcoming you for an informal chat and a tour of the theatre.
