With beautiful views over the Beaulieu River and set at the end of the grassy street that is Buckler's Hard village in the heart of the New Forest, it is difficult to imagine a more picturesque setting for your wedding on the whole south coast of England. The Master Builder's is a perfect country escape.

We want your wedding to be as amazing as you - which it will be, whatever the style or size of day you’re planning. We know that the very best weddings don’t just happen, they have to be carefully created and many things have to come together to make this happen and we don’t leave anything to chance.

At The Master Builders, we will work with you to put together your perfect wedding day. From your first meeting right through until the end of the big day, we will be looking after you and we’ll know you and your plans as well as you do. We’ll find out exactly what you’re looking for and put together a personal plan and quote – no ‘price per head’ packages, no standard lists of what you must have. If you want to ask a question, we’ll will be there to help you. From help choosing an exquisite florist, to finding a photographer who will capture the moment. From putting the mother of the bride into the best room, to organising a round of golf for your party.

We don’t do hundreds of weddings. We’re not a wedding factory and you’re not a statistic. We pride ourselves on tailoring each wedding to your bespoke needs. We want you and your guests to be hit with the ‘wow’ factor.

From the moment you step into The Master Builder's you will be swept away.

The Master Builder's has two divine rooms to choose from to make your day extra special and unique to you. We have a civil ceremony license for 108 and can cater for up to 108 guests for your wedding breakfast.

    Married on 20/05/21 - disappointing experience

    My partner and I got married at the Master Builders when the hotel re-opened after lockdown. I understand there can be some teething issues, however the level of organisation was concerning and when our guests arrived there was no one to greet them and no one knew where they needed to go. There was also miscommunication regarding our registry pre-wedding interview which delayed the ceremony. I feel that the bar/restaurant staff were friendly and attentive. When we went to our room we were not greeted with anything other than a card, not provided with a breakfast menu and when asked if we could order some drinks were told that there was no one to bring them to us. Unfortunately, we were then overcharged and our bill was incorrect. Overall, we were not made to feel special on our day.

    Friendly and professional

    We both had the most amazing day, and just about all of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was.

    We would certainly rate both the venue and the service as a 5/5, we couldn’t have wished for a better day.
    Every member of staff we dealt with were friendly and professional and made us all feel very welcome.

    We would like to thank our Wedding Coordinator for all her support and the fantastic job she did in helping us have the wedding day that we wanted and helping it all come together perfectly on the day. The restaurant manager was also brilliant!

    Service was faultless

    We had such an amazing day! Thanks to our Wedding Coordinator Liga, Restaurant Manager Will and the rest of the team‘s excellent work, we were really impressed. The room was perfectly decorated / set up, service was faultless and all the staff were very friendly & helpful. Will also did a great job keeping things to time and announcing speeches etc. It meant we could just relax & enjoy the day. A massive thank you to you all and to the chef - we had a lot of comments about how good the food was.
    All the best!

    All were top notch!

    IT WAS AMAZING!!

    Liga our event co-ordinator was very professional, knowledgeable and organised and a pleasure to deal with throughout from planning to the actual day we arrived.

    We already knew the venue was fabulous from our first visit so I guess it was about the staff, food and service on the day.

    All were top notch!

    There were no issues, problems or hitches. All very professional with a calm and relaxed approach.

    Totally delighted.

    That also goes for the bar staff and kitchen staff. We ate and drank at the pub a few times over the course of the weekend (about 25 of us stayed the Friday before our wedding on the Saturday and about 12 of us stayed the Sunday night).. Everyone and everything was excellent.

    We will be back as I’m sure will many of our guests who raved about the location and staff.

    It was our dream day and for anyone wanting an outside wedding there is nothing as stunning as this venue at Bucklers Hard :)
