About

An exclusive-use venue offering a secluded, 22-acre estate, with luxury, onsite accommodation (included in the price) for your private use over 3 days!

Marshwood Manor is a unique setting where rustic romance meets Victorian elegance. Immerse yourself in the magic of this exclusive-use, weekend wedding venue, with a host of picturesque locations, fabulous facilities, and luxury onsite accommodation.

You can say your vows in their breathtaking woodland bower, a magical space located in the heart of private ancient woodland. Your guests will cross the stream via the living bridge and be seated in a mystical amphitheatre, an idyllic spot for a romantic outdoor ceremony. It is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies and can accommodate 80 seated guests and 60+ standing guests.

Their Victorian brick haybarn is a bright space, with high, vaulted ceiling and huge doors opening onto a glass-roofed terrace. It is suitable for ceremonies (up to 120 guests) and dining (up to 80) and provides an exceptional blank canvas for your own style of decoration.

If you’re planning a festival-style wedding, the hay meadow is a perfect choice. There is plenty of space for a marquee for up to 250 guests, so you can celebrate amongst the wildflowers in the heart of the stunning vale. (Available after harvest in Aug)

Finally, the gravelled Courtyard is an elegant space for a wedding. The raised Dais is ideal for a unique outdoor ceremony in the round, but can also be used for your band, DJ, outdoor bar or a cosy fire-pit area.

    Couldn’t ask for more!

    Marshwood manor is the place of dreams and a real life fairyland. Romla and her family have done an incredible job at transforming this beautiful home into a loving space for couples to get married! They have put so much soul love and passion into creating the most amazing space.
    She has honestly made dreams come true. As a child I always wanted to get married in the woods and this is all I could of asked for and more!
    Seriously fair priced and cheaper then any other venue (even though this is the best venue I have ever seen)
    Romla has been so friendly and helpful! Almost like family trying to help you in every way possible!
    She has been compassionate and welcoming since day one. No judgment on what you want and no limits! Even allowing us to have a mechanical bull!
    The cottages that you’ll be staying in are absolutely beautiful and well kept and I couldn’t believe it when it was even included in the price of the venue for the weekend!

    Honestly the most perfect and memorable experience and would recomend to anyone.
    We can not wait to be married at Marshwood manor.

    And just Thankyou and all the love in the world to Romla and her family again.

    Mrs and Mr Brootal to be.

    Marshwood Manor Is A Gem!

    My wife and I still can’t believe how fortuitous it was that we came across this heavenly, secluded manor. We found it by chance, and upon seeing Marshwood, we knew this was the place we wanted to say our vows. There was no extra level of stress that this was a destination wedding (we live in the states) because the owner took care of every last detail, made practical and helpful suggestions, and settled my worries completely.
    Getting married at Marshwood made our wedding day feel like we had a space that was just for us and our loved ones-nestled away in a secluded part of the Dorset countryside yet having all the amenities we could have ever dreamed of. It’s so rare to find a space where you and your wedding guests can fill a weekend while not even having to leave the manor, or not go far from it. No one felt rushed, everything was peaceful and beautiful so we could truly enjoy each moment. There wasn’t a guest at the wedding who wasn’t blown away. We lucked out finding this gem. My wife and I hold Marshwood Manor close to our hearts, and will for the rest of our life!

    Wedding of our dreams

    From the minute we drove up the sweeping driveway, to our first viewing, we knew Marshwood Manor was the place we were going to get married. Every single detail is of a high standard, all of the staff are warm, friendly and always go the extra mile. Having the estate to ourselves for the 3 days made everything feel far more relaxed and the woodland is simply breathtaking. As an LGBT couple based in the US, we were welcomed with open arms. Marshwood Manor will always be our place!

    A gorgeous hidden gem in the Dorset countryside

    My husband and I got married September 2021 at Marshwood Manor and had the most amazing experience there.
    Romla was wonderful from the start and was super accommodating and helpful with all our ideas and requests. We had a coordinator as well from MM, so having someone with actual knowledge of the venue made the whole process much smoother.
    The venue itself is stunning, so many of our guests said the ceremony spot in particular was magical!
    The cottages are beautifully done and everyone felt like they were on a mini holiday. None of us wanted to leave!
    An absolutely wonderful venue and we were so well looked after.

    Marshwood Manor's reply:

    Thank you so much. We loved hosting you here for your stunning wedding. Huge congratulations and warmest wishes to you both. x

    Cannot wait to spend our weekend here

    Our second viewing of Marshwood Manor as a venue and we love it! So many different areas for your big day to take place, from the woodland ceremony area to the barn, gravel courtyard and bar. You can tell the entire development has been a passion project of Romla’s and she is equally passionate about providing the best service possible. The cottages are incredible and we definitely can’t wait to spend our weekend here.

    Marshwood Manor's reply:

    We can't wait either, it will be magical!

    A picture perfect venue.

    I can't speak highly enough of Marshwood Manor as a wedding venue. Our families from two countries were able to be together but have their own space in the six cottages. We walked through a field of wildflowers and into the woods to the little chapel where the brides were married, lit up by dappled sunshine. The bar and reception area were like something out of a magazine--in fact, a magazine had done a photo shoot there earlier in the week. Romla has renovated the old buildings with excellent taste and attention to detail, and she brought that same care to organizing the wedding itself. We really appreciated her warmth and professionalism for what could have been a hectic and stressful occasion. She worked with my daughter for over a year to bring about the wedding she had envisioned, and the result was a meaningful, inviting, and colourful occasion that we will always remember with great fondness.

    Marshwood Manor's reply:

    We loved having you here for our very first wedding! So glad you had such a fantastic weekend and that we kicked off with two such beautiful brides and their fun-loving families.
