AT the centre of Lyme Regis’ cultural and social life, the Marine Theatre has witnessed hundreds of celebrations over its rich 125 year history – from plays to concerts and community events.
For some time, couples have been hiring the seaside theatre for their wedding receptions, but the arts venue has now announced that it is now a fully licensed venue.
This means that couples can now hold their ceremony at the theatre, which is part the Dorset coast’s UNESCO World Heritage Centre.
Couples can also take advantage of the venue’s wedding partners – there’s a roster of bands, photographers, florists, and more. Top chef and restaurateur Mark Hix, who is the Marine’s patron, is a catering partner with his HIX Oyster & Fish House.
Marine Theatre director Gabby Rabbitts said: “We’re so pleased to be able to offer families in our community the opportunity to celebrate here. Being on the water’s edge, the sea views make the Marine a desirable place to get married.
“While we’ll always be a an arts venue at heart, the weddings we hold benefit the whole community, by supporting our cultural offering and partnering with local businesses on all the aspects of getting married.”
