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.

Amazing dream wedding
After few false starts thanks to the pandemic, we finally had our wedding in Mapperton! The mapperton team were lovely and flexible over dates. The venue is absolutely stunning and all the guests loved the garden and having the flexibility to roam and explore during canapés. This is a unique venue and would recommend anyone wanting to create a special day here.Sent on 02/08/2021

Could not have asked for better for our perfect day!
From seeing the beautiful setting that Mapperton had to offer and the range of areas that we could use throughout our weddind day, we knew this would be the place for us. From the start, we felt like it was truly just about us and they were able to get back to us about any queries we had or meet us for an update along the way.Sent on 13/08/2021
A particular addition to the package which we loved, is the garden cottage. Not only was this perfect to get ready in on the morning of the wedding but the fact that we can return at a later date through air bnb is something that really appealed to us to celebrate and reminisce further down the line.
The afternoon before the wedding day, we were able to set up and Kat was on hand to answer any questions or to offer advice and then on the day, she remembered all the little details we went through with her which made things flow even better!
The team of suppliers that we had (Taddle Farm Tents, The Hungry Mule, The English Florist, Liz Baker Photography, Mammoth - band) worked seamlessly with Mapperton and us to enable an all round incredible day.
Our wedding day was perfect and we owe a lot of that to the team at Mapperton to ensure that things were all in place and creating a stress free environment leading up to and during the event. We would highly recommend Mapperton as a wedding venue.

Beautiful One of a Kind Venue and Amazing Team at Mapperton
Absolutely stunning venue and wonderful team. Very flexible both in dealing with Covid and even allowing us to hold our legal ceremony on the grounds the day before when we couldn't get the time we wanted on the wedding day itself. A delight to work with and also a source of fantastic contacts within Dorset to solve any and every problem that pops up during the planning of the wedding. We had such an amazing experience and would very highly recommend!Sent on 23/08/2021
Our Wedding Showcase is designed to give you more information about our venue and the wonderful local suppliers who work regularly with Mapperton.
Enjoy the music and what’s on offer plus take a good look around the various locations for your day.Make sure you see the Garden Pavilion on the Croquet Lawn and Grotto in the Fountain Court which is licensed for civil ceremonies; the medieval Church which seats around 90 for a traditional blessing; and of course our majestic Orangery overlooking the sunken gardens, ideal for drinks after your ceremony and all exclusively yours for the day.
