Marshwood Manor is an idyllic Dorset wedding venue, providing a choice of picturesque locations, fabulous facilities and luxury onsite accommodation.
You can say your vows in their highly impressive woodland bower, a magical space located in the heart of their private ancient woodland. You and 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 20+ standing guests.
The brick haybarn is a bright space, with a charming and stylish interior, high vaulted ceilings and huge doors opening onto a private terrace. It is suitable for ceremonies for up to 120 guests and up to 80 for your wedding breakfast and provides an exceptional blank canvas for your wedding decorations.
If you’re planning a festival-style wedding, the picturesque meadow is the perfect choice. There is plenty of space for a marquee for up to 250 guests, so you can celebrate amongst the wild flowers in the heart of the stunning vale.
Finally, the Victorian 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. The courtyard has the capacity for over 250 guests, making it perfect for larger celebrations.
Marshwood Manor also has 6 private cottages, at your disposal for the duration of your celebrations, providing luxury onsite accommodation before and after your wedding day.

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.Sent on 27/07/2020
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.

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.Sent on 10/01/2020

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.Sent on 10/01/2020
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.
