Everything we hoped for, and more!

From the moment we met with the Deans Court team, we immediately knew it was the right venue for our day. Georgia and team work tirelessly to make sure every last detail is perfect, and the result of that is a truly special and unique day for every single couple.

Through the wedding planning process, the communication was excellent, no question or ask too much, and on the day everything ran so smoothly thanks to Georgia and team (I think Georgia must be telepathic because she knew what we were thinking before we even spoke!). Our wedding party also commented on how relaxed we were all day, and that was only possible because we knew all our plans were in such safe hands.

The venue itself is beautiful, and such a hidden gem in the heart of Wimborne. Our guests were so impressed with the stunning marquee & picturesque grounds, which just added to the atmosphere of the day.

We really can't thank you enough and would recommend Deans Court a thousand times over - our only regret is we can't do it all over again! x

The most beautiful wedding weekend

We couldn't recommend the Deans Court team and their beautiful venue and accommodation enough. From the moment we looked around the venue we knew it would be the right place for us and from start to finish the team made sure that everything went smoothly. The grounds, marquee and accommodation are all stunning and beautifully maintained, and a perfect option if you want an "all in one place" wedding. We chose to get married outside close to the event marquee, and our family and friends stayed in the Gatehouse and two cottages which made for a relaxed wedding weekend. The team can't do enough for you, making everything so easy to plan and they really do care about all the small details that make your day unique.

Fantastic venue, perfect day

I can鈥檛 praise Deans Court and the team enough. From the start, we were put at ease and instantly knew our day was in good hands. Georgia made me feel that nothing was too much. They set up the venue beautifully and everything was organised perfectly. The team are so experienced and ran the day so smoothly. The venue speaks for itself with how gorgeous it is and the team running it compliment it beautifully. Thank you for such a perfect day!

Incredible venue - brilliant staff

I can't sing Deans Court and the staff's praises enough.

We got married on 08 July 2023 and everything went so smoothly without a hitch and that was all down to the wonderful team.

We dealt with Jonathan, Georgia and Catherine and they were all incredible. The communication is brilliant and the staff are so friendly and helpful.

Nothing seemed like too much for them in the run up to the day and on the day itself.

Being able to have the team set up the venue for you which leaves you to make any finishing touches the day before was so great!

I wish we could do it all again. The day was perfect and that was down to the wonderful Dean's Court. The organisation was second to none and we truly felt in safe hands.

Thank you thank you thank you!

Couldn't recommend Deans Court anymore

Wow, words can't describe Deans court, thank you for the most perfect day possible. The whole team superseded every single expectation we ever had.
The grounds are stunning, the marquee is beautiful, the photographers kept saying how many beautiful areas there were for them to photograph. Georgia and her team were magnificent, Georgia was on hand whenever we needed her, and she is simply a superstar! Thank you so much! We also used the accommodation onsite for our guests which was amazing, everyone loved it and I couldn't recommend it more, Catherine and her colleagues were on hand and cleaned the accomodation without us even noticing they were there.

I couldn't recommend Deans Court more to any couples looking for a venue!

A truly beautiful venue

Georgia and all the staff went above and beyond to ensure the best service possible. Nothing was too much trouble and each and every staff member was genuinely friendly and helpful. Communication was perfect. If we needed anything , all we had to do was call, text or email and there was a response. Nothing was too much for them and I just can鈥檛 big Deans Court up enough. The marquee was a perfect size even when it rained. And we had to hide inside and the grounds are absolutely stunning. Thankyou so so much Deans Court

Incredible Venue, Incredible Staff

We had an amazing weekend at deans court for our Wedding.

The venue was incredible, the staff genuinely couldn't have been more helpful, down to the waiting staff on the day its self who were a delight.

Jonathan and the team were completely flexible to implement any of our ideas and weve had so many comments on how the day flowed so nicely, which is really down to them.

I couldn't recommend Deans Court more highly

Perfect in every way

Jonathan and the team at Deans Court could not have been more helpful in ensuring we had the best wedding day possible. The venue itself is beautiful and the gardeners do an amazing job of maintaining the grounds but it is the events team that made the difference to our day. Jonathan, Georgia, Kathryn and everyone else were knowledgeable, responsive and flexible. They were ready with advice but happy for us to steer the overall look and feel of the day that we wanted. In the days leading up to the big day the team were on hand to help decorate the marquee and our run through beforehand showed how organised everything is. It all left us feeling in safe hands and able to enjoy the time we had with each other and our loved ones.

Excellent wedding venue

We loved the location from the first time we saw it and it did not disappoint on the day. The outside space was amazing, both in the sun in the day, and with the lovely fairy lights and fire pit in the evening. Such a treasure to find in the middle of Wimborne which was also convenient for our guests to travel to and find accommodation nearby. We wanted a professional and stylish venue that was comfortable for over a 100 guests but also informal and friendly. The venue surpassed our expectations in every way - the staff were so friendly and couldn鈥檛 do enough for all our guests, the inside of the venue was laid out beautifully, and the food was excellent. Jonathan and his team are clearly very experienced and supported us brilliantly through all stages of the organisation of our celebrations, ensuring they adapted to accommodate our needs. We received so much positive feedback from our guests after the event about the venue, the fun they had at the barn dance and the quality of the food. A great big thank you to all the team for helping us have such a wonderful day.

The most MAGICAL day of our life

There's not enough words to say how grateful we are to the whole Deans Court Team for making our day absolutely magical. Jonathan was incredible at making our day uniquely ours. All our guests have said how amazing our day was and we wish we could do it all over again. Everything was so seamless and they did everything for us. Don't look any further to choose your venue!

A perfect day

We waited a long time for our wedding due to the pandemic - 3 years in total from the date that we booked Deans Court, but it was absolutely worth the wait. Deans Court were so accommodating with our many date changes and stuck by us throughout. Jonathan kept in regular contact and was always on hand to answer our questions and offer some reassurance.
Our wedding day itself was beyond perfect. The sky was blue and the sun was beaming down as my father walked me down the aisle. My now husband, and 10 month old son, stood waiting for me under the pagoda set outside the house in the beautiful grounds.
The venue really is magical. The reception drinks on the lawn by the river, the fire pit in the evening, and of course the beautiful crisp white marquee sprinkled with beautiful lights made the whole day something more than magical.
The staff were absolutely brilliant, with Jonathan looking after us in the day and Georgia taking over in the evening. No glass was ever left empty and the whole day from start to finish ran so smoothly.
I wish I could relive the day over again. The memories than Deans Court have given us will live on in our hearts forever. We really could not imagine getting married anywhere else.

Dean's Court Wedding 17.9.21

Brilliant from start to finish. Johnathon and the team were excellent at communicating with us in the planning stages of our wedding and really listened to our thoughts and ideas for the day. We dropped all our decorations etc to them, and they were able to recreate exactly what we had in our minds, but make it even better than we had imagined!!
The day itself was incredible, the Dean's Court staff worked quietly behind these scenes to make it run so smoothly from start to finish. Our guests had an excellent day and were taken care of so well. For us.. it was the best day of our lives!

(Awaiting pictures from photographer..ones below don't quite do it justice!)

Can not fault a thing totally perfect experience from start to finish!

The perfect venue for a Wedding! Jonathan the events manager was there for us every step of the way and so very well organised and we cannot thank him and his staff enough for making our day or should I say days run so perfectly. We got married in August 2020 in the midst of Covid with only 30 guests. Due to the rain we had to get married inside the house but this was perfect and didn鈥檛 spoil our day. We spent two hours in the house drinking champagne and eating cake and we were made to feel so very welcome! This year we were lucky enough to continue our wedding celebrations in the marquee and grounds of Deans Court which looked so beautiful both inside and out. Having not seen the venue in its full glory we were certainly impressed and blown away by how wonderful it all looked and fitted our expectations perfectly! The outside lighting was impressive and the fire pits were an added bonus for our guests to enjoy! The staff were fantastic and made sure everyone鈥檚 glasses were being filled and the canap茅s we supplied were being continually served. Throughout the evening this service continued. We couldn鈥檛 imagine a more perfect setting for our wedding and for the attention to detail supplied by Deans Court and therefore we would highly recommend Deans Court to anyone wanting a chilled and relaxed full of fun venue.
