Larmer Tree Gardens is the perfect venue for a unique, relaxed and quintessentially English country wedding. Located on the Wiltshire-Dorset border, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the wonderful venue provides a truly beautiful setting for your big day.

The Larmer Tree, an excellent example of Victorian splendour, was created in 1880 by General Augustus Pitt Rivers.

The venue is set within 11 acres of Victorian pleasure gardens, which are available for your exclusive use. You can choose between one indoor and two outdoor locations for your civil ceremony; each setting is wonderfully unique and full of character. If the weather is not on your side, there is no need to worry as we have complete flexibility.

Our in-house caterers will create the most delicious wedding breakfast of your choice. You can dine in the new Pavilion with up to 150 seated guests before heading to the Victorian Jubilee Hall for your evening celebrations.

Our Secret Wedding Gardens are truly intimate, special occasions. The mid-week celebrations are held from Monday to Thursday for a maximum of 30 guests. You choose the perfect building for your romantic ceremony and we will provide the lawn marquee for your reception where you can enjoy garden games and delicious food. The roaming peacocks and free-flying macaws complete the beautiful setting for a unique, enchanting atmosphere.

Katy the Mind Reader
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Baines, on 11 May 2017Date of Wedding - 13 Apr 2017

Katy, we just wanted to say thank you for everything you did for us on our wedding day! It could not have gone any better! The topic of conversation at breakfast the next day was how amazing you'd been, with a few guests thinking you were a mind reader in getting things done before anyone even asked. Thank you again for a magical day!

If you want the most perfect, well-organised wedding where your guests will be so gushing and complimentary of the stunning venue, food, drink, hardworking staff, and the fact that they had the "best day ever" and "the best wedding I've ever been to", then you simply must meet Gail Thomas and her team. Go forth in the knowledge that you will be the happiest couple on your wedding day knowing that it exceeded your wildest wishes.

Seriously Brilliant

Seriously brilliant. Gail Thomas you and your team are simply outstanding. We will never be able to thank you enough. We had the most perfect wedding possible here on the 23rd April. Everyone said it was the most amazing venue they have ever been too. Gail, Nikki and Katy were completely and utterly amazing and helped us organise our perfect day. You have given us both the most wonderful memories to cherish for the rest of our lives. We can never thank you enough.

The team at Larmer Tree will ensure everything is perfect, we loved every minute of our day and cannot recommend the Larmer Tree Gardens enough.

A very English wedding
Venue Service

By Caroline & Al, on 03 Apr 2006

We were after something very different for our wedding and having looked at a number of venues, we walked into Larmer Tree and the gardens cast a spell on us. A fabulous humanist ceremony was followed by tea and scones and a (thankfully sunny) afternoon of Pimms, rounders, croquet and badminton on the lawn. As day shifted to night, we moved into the pavillion for a formal meal, followed by dancing. Service was excellent, as was the food and the venue. Quite simply magic.

Truly Beautiful
Venue Service

By Ruth and Jonathan, on 21 Feb 2006

The Larmer Tree Gardens provided a truly beautiful setting for our September (2005) wedding. Aside from the absolutely pristine lawns and gardens we also enjoyed truly excellent food, impeccably presented dining tables and a team of staff who far exceeded our expectations. Waiters and waitresses alike provided exceptional service – they were well presented, professional in their approach as well as personable and exceptionally helpful. The organisation was seamless; we so wanted a relaxed and informal reception and this is exactly what we got. Events unfolded as we had planned, moving naturally and without fuss or pressure from one thing to the next including perfect organisation of four separate entertainers (musicians/6 piece live band). We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding reception at The Larmer Tree Gardens and many of our guests who knew nothing of it before our wedding day are still raving about it now… some months on!

‘We always knew it was going to be the most wonderful of days, but nothing prepared us for how amazing it turned out to be……’

Venue Service

By Aiden and Miranda, on 07 Feb 2006

‘Helen did a fantastic job and took the prospect of cooking for several Michelin starred chefs in her stride. We had so many compliments about the canapés, the wedding breakfast and the buffet and would not hesitate to recommend The Larmer Tree as a venue for other couples who are seriously into their food……’
