South Coast Events are proud to host The Dorset Wedding Festival, an outdoor wedding fair with live music, food outlets  and fun and games for all ages. Think of it like the best wedding fair you’ll go to, add live music, chill out areas, food vans, shopping, a bar and loads of wedding ideas – THAT’s a wedding festival.

This is a must for anyone planning their wedding and the one event where the men will not feel like they’re being dragged along. As well as the usual wedding exhibition, there will be live music, a bar, food outlets and a relaxing and fun atmosphere!

The spring Dorset Wedding Festival is taking place on Sunday 13th May 2018 at Longthorns Farm.

The autumn Dorset Wedding Festival is taking place on Sunday 16th September 2018 at Longthorns Farm.

Do we have to pay for parking?

No, parking is free but please note it is on grass. Someone will direct you upon arrival.

As the event is in a field in marquees, what happens if it rains?

Even if it rains, the event will still go ahead. Just be prepared for a bit of mud and bring your wellies and umbrellas. All of the exhibitors are in marquees, under cover.

It’s called The Dorset Wedding Festival, so is there camping?

For the first year ever, we’re holding the event at a venue that provides camping and glamping!
