The Most Amazing Day
Venue Service

By Lauren & Murray, on 07 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Nov 2018

We just wanted to say thank you so much for the most amazing day. You were brilliant beforehand and especially on the day. It went just as we had imagined it. The venue looked beautiful and we were so lucky to have gorgeous weather too!

Thank you!

My Wife and i got Married here on the 29th Sep. I can't recommend this venue enough if you're planning a wedding/civil ceremony. For the price of hiring the venue vs. the amount of fatalities available to you we couldn't find anywhere better in Dorset. The staff who arrange everything were very professional (thank you Danielle, Amy & all your staff) and on the day it all went off without a hitch.

Magical Day!

Our wedding day was fantastic, couldn't have been better and the staff at KMC weddings are good at what they do. The whole team went above and beyond and i really can not fault them. The whole process of planning was breeze despite us living nearly 3 hours away from the venue, Danni and the team were just fantastic

A Massive Thank You!
Venue Service

By Stacey, on 22 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2018

I just want to start of with how pleased I was with how you and your team decorated the house for our wedding, it looked absolutely beautiful you did a wonderful job so thank you. Also would like to say a massive thank you to the catering staff, the food was mouth watering, well presented and went down well with our guests. But most of all myself and my guests were astonished with the waiting staff for such a young team they were so polite, well mannered, patient with the children, and did more then what was expected, they are a credit to Kingston Maurward.

Thank you!

I would highly recommend Kingston Maurward, our wedding there was just perfect. The location is beautiful; all out guests commented on how amazing the food was. But the best thing about Kingston Maurward are the wonderful staff, so helpful and friendly from start to finish. During dinner one of my friend's baby started fussing a bit so she took him out in the hall in the pushchair; one of the kind bar staff offered to baby sit and took over! My friend was SO grateful; she said it was the first time in a long time that her and her husband had been able to eat a meal together whilst it was still hot. There were so many little touches of kindness and humour from the staff, they were as much a part of our day as our guests. Thank you so much Jenna and all the team. x

Idyllic, romantic venue
Venue Service

By Louise Scott, on 05 Sep 2011

I attended a wedding ceremony & reception at Kingston Maurward and now want to have my own wedding here! My friend had her ceremony in a beautiful period suite then her reception was in a fabulous room with an interior marquee lining. You literally gasped when you saw the way the room was made up for the wedding meal. Loved everything from the start to the finish of the event. The staff were really lovely and I actually thought they were friends of the bride and groom they all seemed to know each other so well. It was a great day and cant wait to plan my day now!

A Delightful House and superb grounds
Venue Service

By steve.smith, on 08 Mar 2001

My sister held her afternoon and evening reception here last November. A huge hall with 7ft by 9ft fireplaces at either side warm your entrance and gracefully take you into a number of reception rooms with ornate ceilings and numerous french doors leading on to a laid lawn and river. Excellent amenities for the disabled, coupled with well decorated rooms make this a very desirable venue
