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 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 Wednesday for a maximum of 30 guests or ask us about our Intimate Winter Package. 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

    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!

    A very English wedding

    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

    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!

    Really did make such a huge task feel very, very easy!

    ‘James and I had an absolutely fantastic wedding day. We both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and felt the day was just perfect. So many of our family and friends have since said how wonderfully organised everything was and what a super job you and your team at the Larmer Tree did. Thank you for being such a pleasure to work with leading up to the wedding, and such a support on the day itself. You really did make such a huge task feel very, very easy! Thank you once again to you and your staff for making our wedding day so special and memorable……..’

    The whole day just ran effortlessly.

    “………we had spent ages contacting various venues only to find that although they stated they catered for small parties, the actual venues and arrangements on offer, made us feel intimidated. We were after all going to be a party of 6 of which, 2 included the Registrar. It was through our relentless searching that we finally stumbled on the Larmer Tree. We couldn’t believe our eyes……private gardens with a venue purposely licensed for a small party…and when the leaflet came through the door with the picture of the ‘Temple’ on it, our minds were made up there and then.

    Being totally naïve we had no inclination of procedures or timescales and decided to get married this year, ……actually within 5 weeks! We knew it must have been a tight deadline as everyone kept repeating themselves…..”oh, you do mean August next year ”, they all seemed rather shocked when we told them we did in fact mean August 2005. However, Sarah at the Larmer Tree was fantastic. The Venue was booked straight away, we had contacts provided by her on everything else and within one afternoon we had; notice arranged, flowers ordered, Registrar booked, photographer booked, accommodation booked at Farnham Farmhouse next door along with hair and make-up.

    The actual day was truly memorable. The whole day just ran effortlessly. We literally had the whole gardens to ourselves. Sarah had organised a gazebo for our wedding picnic and Bella, the photographer, was clicking away in the background without us noticing.

    We wanted our day to feel special, different and relaxed and on every account, our expectations were exceeded.

    A personal thanks to Sarah and to everyone who made the day as special as it was.

    Fantastic

    ‘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……’
