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; we are now also able to offer outdoor wedding ceremonies. 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.

Our stunning pagoda-style marquee can accommodate up to 85 guests for the reception meal and is included in the venue hire price.

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.

My daughter got married here August bank holiday last year and it was amazing. The staff were lovely, really friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and the guests said it was not only a wedding but a day out for all too. A chance of fun for all. A real family and friends day.

Such a beautiful place! Everyone that came to our wedding reception here really enjoyed it. It was a perfect place for all ages and the children had lots of fun in a safe environment. Thank you very much to the staff at the Orangery Suite

... highly recommend it
Venue Service

I photographed a wedding here on Monday and it was so lovely. We had all different types of weather, sun, rain, dark grey clouds, and it looked beautiful at every stage. It’s so picturesque and there are games on the ground to entertain everyone, from croquet, to chess, there are various seating areas for photographs, it’s a beautiful little place. The reception was in a lovely marquee, and they did a barbecue for the wedding party. There’s a little bar inside too. I highly recommend it

... best day ever

... fun wedding
Venue Service

By Rebecca, on 06 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 26 May 2018

We chose The Orangery Suite in late May for the ceremony and daytime reception for our wedding because we wanted a fun wedding where our guests could relax and keep themselves entertained too. Needless to say, The Orangery Suite delivered! The grounds are beautiful and offered ample room for 60-70 guests to explore and discover various games dotted around. The ceremony room and the gazebo were great too, but the outdoor areas were the real stars of the show. Even for such a long reception (we had the venue booked for 7 hours), I was never worried that the guests would get bored and heard only great feedback from them

... most perfect day

We would just like to say a massive thank you to you and your team for everything you did to make our day go smoothly. Everything was perfect and you facilitated our needs perfectly. We really appreciated the time you spent with us before the day and your unobtrusive presence throughout the day. Everybody loved the venue, and its the perfect place for what we needed.

... perfect venue for relaxed summer wedding
Venue Service

By Hayley, on 06 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 05 Aug 2017

We got married here just over 2 weeks ago. This was the first and only venue we viewed for our wedding....as 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.

... venue is stunning
Venue Service

By Matthew, on 06 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2017

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.
