About Athelhampton House and Gardens

Athelhampton is one of Dorset's finest Wedding venues. Whether you choose in indoor our outdoor wedding celebration, you can take your pick of beautiful spaces throughout our country house and gardens.

During sunny summer days, our Grade 1 listed gardens are an idyllic setting for your guests to relax and celebrate with you.

With beautiful features including yew pyramids and a sunken lawn (the ideal space for a game of croquet). Explore further and you’ll discover our subtropical gardens - the ideal backdrop for your wedding photographs.

Athelhampton House itself is just as glorious as its gardens. We can host your romantic wedding ceremony in our historic great hall and serve your sumptuous wedding breakfast in our lavish period dining room.

We pride ourselves on individuality and will create a bespoke offering for each of our couples. Our top chefs will prepare your unique menu using seasonal and locally-sourced ingredients.. 

The fun doesn’t stop after the wedding breakfast, we can also lay on evening entertainment to suit your wedding style, and bring out a buffet for hungry revellers later on into the party.

Perfect weddings don’t come together by chance. They’re meticulously-planned by experienced events managers. Our team of professional staff work hard to ensure your experience is perfect from the first planning meeting through to the last dance. Whether your guest list is 12 or 300, our wedding planners will work with you to ensure a stress free, relaxing planning for an equally delightful day

    Thank You!

    To Michela, Owen & Laura. Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day at Athelhampton so special. It would not have been the same without your superb organisational skills, guidance and help in answering all our questions beforehand and bringing everything together on the day so smoothly.
    the House and Gardens are so beautiful and we still can't believe how lucky we were to catch the sunshine for an outdoor ceremony! The food was fabulous and we had lots of positive feedback on it from our guests, as well as how much they loved the venue.
