About Mapperton

Exclusive and romantic, Mapperton offers outdoor and indoor ceremony options, guest-pleasing gardens with views over the valley, stately home heritage and a superb rustic yet modern rustic barn.

Nestled in the rolling hills near Beaminster stands Mapperton House & Gardens, Dorset’s finest country wedding venue.

Our venue is perfect for couples who are looking for a personalised approach to their wedding with plenty of wow factor as well as practical solutions for every element of your day.

Wake up in the double-aspect master bedroom of Garden Cottage at Mapperton on the morning of your wedding in the Garden Cottage, knowing at the end of the party you’ll stroll back across the lawn hand in hand reflecting on a wonderful celebration.

We have four beautiful outdoor ceremony locations and two indoor licensed areas, all with flexible styling options. After your exchange of vows, celebrate with drinks and canapes outside the chic vintage Orangery and enjoy far-reaching views through the gardens into the tumbling countryside beyond, a favourite spot for showstopper photos. Your guests will love wandering through the award-winning gardens and truly relax in the peaceful atmosphere at Mapperton. Lawn games welcome!

As the afternoon lengthens lead your party over to our Coach House, where your Wedding Breakfast has space for up to 120 seated guests. This rustic barn has a modern tonal feel as well as retaining heritage charm with original features. Banqueting tables and crossback chairs are included in your package although do hire round tables if preferred. We include a 9x12m marquee in our package and this is often set up beside the Coach House creating a mini fiesta feel to your evening party, especially with fire pits and festoon lights.

There is additional space on the Croquet Lawn for a larger marquee reception.

A Mapperton Weddings Co-ordinator will seamlessly oversee your day, allowing you to relax and enjoy every moment.

    Dream Day!

    Dream Day - I would have no hesitation recommending Mapperton Estate for your upcoming wedding. We had our wedding in July this summer and it was an absolute Fairytale. The venue is stunning and I couldn't have been happier with my overall experience before and during. Laura Bell was so helpful and easy to work with. I was unable to physically be there to do most of my planning and she assured me that everything would be taken care of and in place to make the day as easy as possible. Laura and the rest of the team put us at ease immediately and continued throughout the day itself. I would suggest that if you do book your wedding that you would book the cottage along with it. It was an absolute game changer having that space the night before and the day of. Not to mention, it was beautiful as well! I wish I could already repeat this day!

    Dear Claire, Laura & everyone at Mapperton. Thank you so much for helping us to realise our Perfect Wedding day and working behind the scenes to ensure that everything ran smoothly. Claire you saved my sanity on the Thursday before the big day, offering a fantastic wet weather plan amidst my sheer panic. Mapperton provided the most wonderful setting. The autumnal light & colour captured in our photos are incredible. We wish you all the best with future weddings!

    Beautiful Gardens

    We had the most amazing day thank you. You both work so hard and we really appreciate all of your help and advice given on the run up to the wedding. Everything was perfect! Of course the venue is absolutely stunning and everyone commented on your beautiful gardens.
