Welcome to Chedington Weddings, hosted at the magnificent West Axnoller Farm. The estate is hidden in a West Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, tucked away in the folds of the sleepy hollows of the West Dorset countryside but only 20 minutes away from the Jurassic Coast. This fabulous exclusive hire private estate sits in 360 degree breathtaking views in a secluded valley. It is the perfect place to host your dream wedding.
Whether it's a grand scale extravaganza or a more low key affair, we truly aspire to gives you the freedom to achieve your vision for a wedding day that is all about you.
The estate boasts 100 acres of pristine countryside, two, stunning, eclectic houses where 24 of your nearest and dearest can stay in the lap of luxury with hot tubs and indoor pools, steam rooms and saunas at their disposal for the long weekend.
There are a number of romantic locations where your ceremony can take place. Whether it's in the midst of the beautiful countryside views, under the pergola draped with muslin or in the modern converted barn, whatever the weather we have the perfect spot.
For the wedding party itself there is an uber cool industrial meets rustic barn that can seat up to 220, but to ensure that we have all bases covered there is also a whimsical marquee to use for the drinks reception or for somewhere from which you can gaze at the stars late into the night. There is also the green oak pergola festooned with fairy lights and roses for alfresco dining.
The estate is lucky enough to have no neighbours nearby (except for the horses and sheep) which allows you to party till your heart desires.
What’s more, everywhere you look you are surrounded by jaw-dropping views which means there are plenty of opportunities to capture those all-important wedding images - a keepsake of the memories that you will treasure for years to come.
