About Deans Court

2 Deans Court Lane, Wimborne
Dorset, BH21 1EE

Weddings at Deans Court are all about taking away the stress that can sometimes come with planning an elaborately detailed event and instead, keeping the elements which you really want – a fun, relaxed and memorable day to celebrate the beginning of your new lives together.

Having hosted receptions since 2011, we are still relatively new in the world of weddings – but what we have learned is that we are something different. There are many venues offering perfectly straight hedge-rows and immaculately manicured flower beds, whereas Deans Court is a little more quirky, a little bit wild, whilst being truly romantic. So we thought we would embrace that, play to our strengths and put together some wedding packages that reflect that relaxed, country style. These packages work great for parties up to 140 – anymore and we can discuss other arrangements.

Deans Court is a private home you can rest assured that there will be no other visitors wondering around. And your day needs to revolve around you. So let us know what time you would like to arrive, when you would like to eat, and when you would like to party! We have a late night music licence until 11pm (and the bar closes at 11:30).

Perfect stumbling distance from the marquee you will find our recently renovated farmers cottages and our gate house. Sleeping up to 26 people in total, they are available for your guests who have travelled far, or perhaps for you as a perfect bridal (or grooms) get-a-way!

• Relaxed Country Feel • Exclusive Hire of the Deans Court Gardens • Use of the Marquee (and all the essential extras) • Use our in house catering and bar, or bring in your own chef and drinks - we are very flexible • Accommodation for up to 26 people onsite, and plenty more within walking distance • From our own gardens we can provide rural flower arrangements

Wow what can I say we had the most amazing wedding at Deans court on Saturday it couldn’t of been any more perfect and that was down to the awesome team at Deans court!! Anything of my questions asked we’re answered straight away every time which made planning so easy!

We are still beaming and talking constantly about how amazing our day was!! Thank you so much Especially to Jonathan and Katherine you were FAB :-) xxxx

We had our wedding reception at Deans Court and it was perfect. Literally all of our guests agreed that the venue was stunning, even in a bit of occasional drizzle! When the moon came out later on, along with some river-side mist, it made the atmosphere even more special. Jonathan and his team were fantastic and made everything run so smoothly and the attention to detail was second to none, we even had comments about the fluffy towels in the toilets! Delicious food and drink too; the day was faultless. If you're looking for a wedding venue in this area, book Deans Court!

From beginning to end everyone & everything at Deans Court was simply wonderful. Particular mention to Jonathan for being so organised & approachable, Katherine & Steve who worked tirelessly in the background & made everything run so smoothly & to plan on the day & Kelly & Andrew for creating the most incredible flower wall & allowing our floral visions to become a reality! It truly was the most wonderful wedding venue & we'd repeat the whole day every weekend if we could!

Our wonderful wedding!

From start to finish Deans Court have been incredible. We decided to have a 'blessing ceremony' and our evening reception at deans Court. When we went to view the grounds they showed us the accommodation on site- which we simply fell in love with and decided to book all the accommodation which I would thoroughly recommend to enhance the wedding weekend vibe! All organisation from deans Court was amazing- any queries meant with speedy and friendly responses from events manager Jonathan- nothing seemed a problem! We used the in house florist (Kelly) as well- who was simply incredible and produced the most beautiful looking and smelling flowers. Our wedding day itself was amazing! We were somewhat unlucky with the weather as it literally rained every minute of the whole day HOWEVER this did not dampen any spirits and the staff at Deans Court were amazing- they brought out umbrellas for guests and helped guide us through the day. in the end the weather made no difference and if anything made the day feel so much more intimate. Our guests are still raving about it! The food and drink were also spectacular. So in summary if you are looking for a friendly, country style wedding with expert attention to detail then Deans Court is the place to go!

Deans Court is an absolutely fantastic venue. Not only is it stunning the staff are so accommodating. Jonathan is meticulous in his planning, making sure you stay on track and on the help/setting up Steve and Katherine are incredible. We are so thankful we choose Deans Court for our special day.

Outstanding attention to detail and support
Venue Service

By Amanda Wadey, on 13 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2018

From the moment we met Jonathan we knew we were in safe hands; he and his team are so professional, so patient and so efficient. Dealing with Jonathan is a dream; he responded to all our questions immediately and was extraordinarily flexible to accommodate all our pecadillos. He also suggested some wonderful ideas during the planning, and on the day, that made our wedding even more magical. The venue is quite stunning; our guests couldn't believe what awaited them as they walked through the gate at the end of Deans Court Lane through to a view of the house. I could go on. It really was everything we could have hoped for and more. I would love to say that it was my husband who made my day but actually I think it was Jonathan!

The Perfect Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Charlotte & Thomas, on 09 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2018

Deans Court was the perfect venue for us. All our guests commented on the stunning surroundings which was shown at its best by the lovely weather. Jonathan and his team made everything run like clockwork. I particularly loved that at the end of the night all our family could walk up the small path to the cottages on site. The venue is made for weddings and I would highly recommend.

Just wanted to say thanks again, it was perfect day for us and you were very helpful, professional and organised in advance and followed it through on the day. The whole experience was smooth, and it felt like we were being looked after by people who genuinely cared and wanted to help make the day special for us. Jonathan really helped make it for us, and was really impressed by how on point everything was from him in advance. Steve and Kathy were amazing too (they run it for us in the evening). They couldn't do enough to help us, always having a laugh, working tirelessly but always getting involved in the fun. They really helped make the evening enjoyable for us and helped us along the way and reminded us to cut the cake etc! Had so many compliments about the venue, location, food and everything so couldn't be happier really. You guys do a fantastic job with a smile and you care which helps make the experience more special for people like us! We had Kelly from Deans Court do the flowers, and Flaming Peaches do the food, and had so many compliments about both. Both were recommended by the venue, and work there quite a bit so we'd definately say if you are doing a wedding here, speak with them. The food was sooooo good! The location / space is amazing, and perfect for a natural setting / out doors sort of feel. I would listen to Jonathan's advice on what weddings have done in the past, and go and see the space so you can see how you can put your personal touch on it. They have an amazing set up down there which can be customised to your own tastes.

The most beautiful wedding venue ever!
Venue Service

By Rebecca and Jason Deverill, on 10 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2018

Deans Court is the most idyllic setting for a romantic, personal wedding. All day our guests commented about the hidden gem of Deans Court. The marquee by the lake is the perfect size in a beautiful setting. The large grounds means people can play games and relax at their leisure or be inside partying, eating and drinking. There’s options for everyone. The food was divine and all staff were extremely attentive and happy throughout the day; no job was ever too big or small. Jonathan, the events manager, was extremely happy to help at all times in the lead up for the day, answering all queries promptly and ensuring we had just what we wanted for an amazing day. Steven and Katherine, who ran the big day for us, were fabulous. Their attention to detail when setting up and their willingness to please was much appreciated. We had the best wedding ever and I’m sure all bride and grooms say this but many of our guests said just the same so thank you to everyone at Deans Court!

By Brian Stewart, on 30 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

From the first time we looked at the venue we knew it was where we wanted to get married. We met with Jonathan who was amazing from the start, he showed us round gave us all the information we needed in order to make an informed decision. He wasn’t pushy and was extremely relaxed through the process. At our two month to go meeting Jonathan was extremely well organised and made us feel that he had everything under control well that is an understatement, everything Jonathan has done for us has been amazing. two days before the big day we dropped everything off at the venue and met some of the team (Steve and Katherine) who were all just as lovely as Jonathan. We went back to look over the venue the day before and OMG they made it look amazing we were extremely happy with the professionalism of everything they had done for us. On the day we were greeting personally by Jonathan who gave my self and my new wife our first welcome drink and the evening only got better from there. The food was amazing, the bar staff were friendly and Jonathan, Steve and Katherine could not do more to make sure that the day was exactly as we wanted it to be. They always asked us if there were anything else we would like them to do.From start to finish the experience was the best and I have no problem recommending this beautiful venue to others and with Jonathan and his team at the helm it makes it even more special thank you deans court and thank you Jonathan and team for making our day so special. If your looking for relaxed and professional venue check out deans court you will not be disappointed.

Made a perfect day even better!
Venue Service

By Brett Harvey, on 25 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Jul 2018

Absolutely incredible. Both the venue and the staff exceeded our expectations (and believe me, these were high expectations!). We knew we wanted a marquee setting for our reception and there were a few venues locally that fitted the bill. Deans Court did sit slightly on the higher end of the pricing, but do not be put off by this. I doubt the other, cheaper venues, as good as I'm sure they are, would come any where near the quality and service we received from Deans Court. Money well spent. If you are thinking about booking Deans Court please consider all the extra service you get with them that you might not with other venues. Jonathan's meticulous planning made sure that no stone was left un-turned. The Wedding Team (Katherine, Steve and Paul) made sure that on the day all of this was executed to perfection. We were afforded access to the venue 3 days before which really helped with supplier drop offs, etc (I don't think you'd get that with some other venues). All decorations were put up and taken down for us, then neatly repacked and placed together on the stage ready for collection the next day. Onsite overnight parking, etc. It's these touches that really set them apart. We chose Deans Court's in-house caterers for the food. Canapes, meal, and evening BBQ all faultless. All our guests commented on how great the staff were. We opted for the "flowing" drinks package. There's always the hesitation with this that the venue will "hold back" on how quickly they serve! But I can honestly say no one was left with less than half a glass before someone jumped in to top it up! Can't fit all the praise they deserve in 300 word review! Perfect setting, even better people!
