The Garden Room at Cranborne is set in the walled, former kitchen garden of Cranborne Manor in rural Dorset, yet close to both Salisbury and Bournemouth, and only 2 hours from London. Our contemporary building with its private landscaped garden is a stunning venue in which we tailor-make a unique and beautiful wedding reception to suit your individual requirements.
We believe every wedding should be unique and personal. We also know that planning a big event can be time-consuming and stressful. With our team of local suppliers, we can coordinate your day to provide catering, drinks, floristry, styling and all the little details just the way you would like them, to create a truly memorable occasion. Working with you, our wedding co-ordinator will take care of the details leaving you to relax and enjoy a stress-free day.
We host wedding ceremonies and receptions throughout the year. The Garden Room seats up to 70 guests for a formal wedding breakfast or 85 for a more informal party. Larger parties of up to 120 can be accommodated incorporating a marquee on the lawn.

Our Wedding August 2019
The Garden Room is a hidden gem that needs to be discovered by more people! It's the most beautiful venue with excellent grounds and the room acts as a real blank canvas that can be transformed.Sent on 10/08/2019
From the initial meeting with Claire nearly 2 years ago to our actual wedding day, Claire was fantastic and nothing was ever too much hassle. She did a brilliant job at communicating with the suppliers to ensure a clear itinerary was made for the day. Claire was 100% dedicated and the fact that we could set up for the wedding the day before was a massive help. On the actual day, Claire was around at all times and was continuously checking in on myself, my husband and my parents which we massively appreciated. Nothing was ever to much.
We had 78 guests for our wedding breakfast and 115 evening guests in total.
I would highly recommend The Garden Room as a venue.

The best venue ever !!
From the moment we went to the garden room we knew this was the perfect setting for our wedding! It trulySent on 22/08/2019
is a hidden gem with its beautiful flowers, relaxed and peaceful atmosphere and brilliant and kind staff! We invited lots of families and the garden was perfect for our guests to sit out and enjoy the sunshine and for the kids to run around and play with the garden games Claire provided! The room was light and beautifully presented, with plenty of space for dancing in the evening! Claire was absolutely fantastic with helping us organise the wedding and allowed us to really put our own stamp on the day, which many other venues do not allow. Her team could not do enough for us on the day, and worked tirelessly to ensure guests had the best time ! She also introduced to us the Indulge catering team who provided an incredible service, friendly staff and truly delicious food ! Our guests are still raving about the venue and the food and we cannot praise it enough! It shall be one of our favourite places to visit forever !! XX

Wonderful venue, fabulous food, a dream day
Our guests are still glowing with praise for the fabulous day we had at this venue - it was truly perfect. We saw a lot of venues before we came across The Garden Room. They all felt like wedding factories churning out cookie cutter experiences and that was the opposite of what we wanted. We wanted something intimate and informal, with a laid-back summer party feel, that we could put our own stamp on - this venue was perfect, a charming English country garden with a neutral inside space. From beginning to end Claire made the experience very personal and relaxed, she took a lot of the hassle out of the planning. We had a relatively small wedding reception - 60 people - and the space was the perfect. It was a really hot day and the guests enjoyed the beautiful garden setting with space for the kids to run around as well. The indoor space is a real blank canvas with loads of natural light. We were the only reception that weekend so we were able to come the day before and take our time setting up and getting things as we wanted at our own pace. Claire was very flexible and nothing was too much trouble. She introduced us to some local caterers (Indulge) who did a fantastic job of the food and service - even my fussy family didn't have a single negative word to say. I found a great local photographer (Darima Frampton) who did a beautiful job of our wedding photos. I really feel like we made new friends through planning our wedding and we fell in love with Cranborne, and even talk about moving there one day!Sent on 03/09/2018
