Marshwood Manor is a country wedding venue in West Dorset, England. A unique setting where rustic romance meets Victorian elegance. Immerse yourself in the magic of this exclusive-use, weekend wedding venue, with picturesque locations, fabulous facilities, and luxury onsite accommodation.
Facilities and Capacity
Say your vows in Marshwood Manor's 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. This is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies and can accommodate up to 80 seated guests and over 60 standing guests.
The Victorian brick hay barn is a bright space, with a high, vaulted ceiling and huge doors opening onto a glass-roofed terrace. It is suitable for ceremonies for up to 120 guests and dining for 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 al fresco in the heart of the stunning vale. This option is available after harvest in August.
Finally, the graveled Courtyard is an elegant space for a wedding. The raised Dais is ideal for a unique outdoor ceremony in the round. This area 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.
The Marshwood Manor team includes a wedding coordinator to help your wedding day proceed seamlessly. Six private cottages are included and at your disposal for the duration of your celebrations, providing luxury onsite accommodation before and after your wedding day.

Amazing amazing venue with lovely staff
Big thank you to the MM team! X
A dream venue with so much to offer
Smooth and relaxed
The best weekend ever!
We can’t thank Romla and her team enough for making our wedding run so smoothly! Katie our wedding planner was also amazing helping us plan the wedding timeline. She helped coordinate the suppliers prior to the wedding and also on the day.
We just want to do it all over again! Thank you for having us and we wish you all the success for the future!
Couldn’t ask for more!
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!
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
A gorgeous hidden gem in the Dorset countryside
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.
Cannot wait to spend our weekend here
