About The Orangery Suite

Merley House Lane, Wimborne, Nr Poole
Dorset, BH21 3AA

As one of Dorset's hidden treasures, The Orangery Suite is an attractive and unique venue for intimate and personal wedding ceremonies and receptions.

With exclusive use of the beautifully landscaped walled garden, The Orangery is an idyllic setting for a couple's special day.

The recently refurbished room can seat 75 people for the ceremony. After the ceremony, guests can make their way out onto the terrace for a drinks reception whilst the newly married couple have photographs taken in the elegant grounds.

The Orangery Suite can accommodate 60 people for the reception meal or up to 85 in our stunning marquee on the lawn.

Whilst background music is welcome, the tranquil location means that discos are not suitable for The Orangery Suite. However, there is another venue just a short walk away, or others within a few minutes drive that will accommodate your evening function.

The Orangery is in a quiet and secluded countryside location, just a mile from Wimborne in Dorset, and is easily accessible from all parts of Dorset and Hampshire.

The historic setting and spacious grounds make The Orangery Suite the perfect venue for a relaxed and stylish day to remember.

• The Orangery Suite is licensed to perform marriages and civil partnership ceremonies. • A wide variety of catering is available. • Why not make use of our extensive activities within the walled garden, such as croquet, pétanque, crazy golf, beach volleyball and many more. • The grounds are not open to the public, so your wedding party would enjoy exclusive use of the beautifully landscaped walled garden and facilities. • Many photo opportunities within the grounds including a bridge, gazebo and sunken garden. • Please contact us for prices, availability, and further information about hiring The Orangery Suite for your wedding.

We got married here just over 2 weeks ago. This was the first and only venue we viewed for our soon as we set foot in the gardens we knew it was the perfect venue for the relaxed summer wedding that we wanted! We didn't want a hotel or country house as we didn't like how the day was too 'structured' and we wanted something a bit different. We wanted to be able to choose how our day went and change the order of things as we pleased. The Orangery Suite lets you decorate things exactly as you want them and you have the whole venue to put your own stamp on. The huge range of garden games were an added bonus as free entertainment for our wedding guests and they were really popular on the day. Unfortunately, despite it being July, it was drizzly on and off throughout the day but it definitely didn't ruin anything and Graham was really helpful with changing things around for us, plus it still stayed dry at the times we needed it to and we got all our outside pics. I wish we could have our wedding all over again just to go back to the Orangery Suite, it really is stunning with so many great backdrops for photos. Thanks so much Graham! This is the perfect hidden gem for weddings and we will try to find any excuse to have another party here at some point.

My wife and I got married at the Orangery suite on June 3rd 2017 and we could not fault it. The venue is stunning and with so many activities it gave our guests so much to do and stay entertained. Graham was always on hand and ready to help when we needed it. The venue is really good for photographs and allows for some more relaxed action shots when playing games. We couldn't imagine having our wedding anywhere else.

Best wedding ever!

Our wedding could not have been more perfect. The setting is ideal for guests of all ages from naughty Best Men throwing golf balls at each other to children who play all day, not a squeak was heard from any of them except at pudding time. The gardens were stunning in full Spring bloom and everything we had requested was laid on without a hitch. Fabulous staff, very professional. A marvellous day in a beautiful and almost secret walled garden. If only you could get married more than once, I'd go back next weekend!

We would like to give the biggest of thank-yous for helping us have the perfect wedding. The venue gave us the perfect setting for our big day and Graham was so helpful in making sure that everything ran smoothly, both on the day and in the preparations and endless barrage of questions. Couldn't recommend the Orangery Suite enough!

It couldn't have been a more perfect day! Our guests commented on the beautiful gardens and the children loved the games. I can't wait to see our professional photos as there were so many gorgeous areas around the garden. For us, we didn't want a registry office as our local wasn't as special as we imagined, and the over priced hotels limited us greatly. The Orangery Suite was a perfect middle ground and amazingly priced. Graham was incredibly helpful and nothing was too much to ask. Thank you.

On behalf of my husband and myself, we would like to thank Graham and his staff for our wonderful wedding held at The Orangery Suite on 22nd August. We could not of asked for a better venue. The grounds are stunning. Everyone commented on how peaceful and relaxed the whole event was. The whole day went without incident all thanks to the help and excellent communications from Graham. Some of our guests have been considering The Orangery for future events. Thank you again it was all we wanted and more.

Thank you for allowing us to get married at The Orangery. It's a totally gorgeous place and our guests have commented how wonderful it is there - even that it's the best wedding they'd ever been to! We wish we could do it all over again. Thank you for all your help, before and on the day. We were totally relaxed knowing you had everything sorted. We will totally recommend you to others. Perfect place, perfect day and lots of memories made for everyone.

Great venue for our wedding on 4th August 2014. Graham was so helpful with the planning and set-up and ensuring everything was perfect on the day! No shortage of activities around the beautifully landscaped walled garden, like croquet, giant chess, table tennis, boules. Such a tranquil setting with many quiet spots to relax. Highly recommended!

Absolutely Perfect

By Alexis, on 12 Dec 2014

The most beautiful wedding venue we've visited - full of charm with magnificent landscaped gardens and wonderful facilities. I've been to many weddings in and around Dorset (coming from the sister of the bride and friend of many others) and this is the best by a country mile. The manager, Graham, was incredibly helpful, and the day really couldn't have gone any better. I cannot recommend The Orangery Suite highly enough.
