Amazing venue with very helpful staff.
The venue - Minterne House is an absolutely stunning venue, rich in both decadence and history, and was the perfect location for our wedding reception. As you meander up the drive you are instantly taken by the building and its surrounding landscape, a sentiment often repeated to us by our guests on the day, and that theme continues throughout as you explore the various rooms.
We had access to the property for the weekend and were able to utilise both the gardens and the various rooms for the entirety of our stay there, making it almost feel like a home away from home!
And for those having a church wedding - St Mary's in Cerne Abbas is a beautiful church and was only bested by the vicar and the surrounding community. Attending service there in the months running up to the wedding was a pleasure and made the whole process extra special.
Staff - The staff at Minterne House were extremely accommodating, particularly in the days running up to the wedding. They were happy to help wherever they could, even coming to the rescue to help with some last minute transport issues! Both Lord Digby and his staff should be extremely proud of what they do. A special thank you goes out to Georgina, who was so incredibly helpful during the whole process.
Overall, my wife and I could not recommend Minterne House enough! It was such a special day and we will be returning to the venue and its beautiful gardens in the near future.
Thank you again!
