Set in the tranquil Dorset countryside, St Giles House makes for your idyllic wedding venue. Providing an unforgettable and unique experience for you and your loved one to marry in a truly magical setting.

There are so many fantastic tales left to tell, so many exciting and romantic chapters still to write. It's time for you to take your place and be a part of the marvellous story of St Giles House.

St Giles House is licensed to hold wedding ceremonies in any of the principal rooms of the house and has a maximum capacity of 120 guests. If you're looking for an outdoor ceremony, The Lake Lawn hosts the most remarkable views across the grounds and estate, whilst the 18th-century Grotto, lined with shells brought back from the Caribbean, provides a unique and intimate ceremony location for up to 20 guests. If you're looking for a Church ceremony, St Giles Church is only at the end of the avenue. Hire a marching band to walk your guests from the church to the house for something a little different.

Known as the venue with the best-kept secret. If you're looking to dazzle your guests with the unexpected, our award-winning nightclub and speakeasy bar located in the basement will do just that. Take it from decadence to deca -"dance" in the evening.

Your booking with us includes a two-night stay in the 17th-century Riding House, as well as The Grooms Cottage, comprised of two Maisonettes that have been refurbished, sleeping 4 in each. Additional accommodation is also available in the Pepperpot Lodges and St Giles House bedrooms, meaning 42 guests+ can be accommodated on-site with other local options within walking distance.

It's time for you to be part of the marvellous story and begin your journey here at St Giles House. We look forward to meeting you.

You're all stars!

Just a short note to say a massive thank you from me and Jonny for this weekend. Not only was the venue even more perfect and beautiful than we remembered, but more importantly the organisation and support from your team was more than we could have hoped for! You allowed us to have a totally relaxed, seamless and perfect wedding.

So many people have commented to me that the staff and organisation were so friendly relaxed and that the whole thing was seamless, and that is all thanks to you. You really allowed us to relax and enjoy our wedding, and we had the absolute best weekend.
