Dog Friendly Weddings

Man's best friend

Part of your special day

For many couples, leaving their four-legged friend off the guest list would be unimaginable. So, let us reassure you that dogs are welcome to celebrate in style at Ocean Kave. We will help you design your special day with your beloved pet in mind; perhaps they could be your ring bearer, or even give you away! We have even partnered with an excellent local dog-grooming service to make sure your dog is pampered and paw-fect ahead of the ceremony.

Set within 60 acres of countryside, Ocean Kave has plenty of beautiful outdoor space with wildflowers and meadows for your pooch to explore. Of course, we are lucky to have Westward Ho! Beach right on our doorstep, which we think your pet will love. We also have a selection of dog-friendly cottages within the grounds providing luxury accommodation for couples, families, and groups.
