“We can make your wedding extra special because we offer something different”

Symondsbury is a very special wedding venue. It suits those who want to enjoy a small intimate event in a romantic and atmospheric setting.

The price of a weekend wedding at Symondsbury Manor is £6,000 which includes accommodation for up to 22 (plus 2) people, use of the magnificent 18th century panelled ballroom and of the Symondsbury Manor grounds and gardens for your marquee.

Your Wedding Reception in Dorset

Symondsbury Manor is yours for the weekend and there is stylish accommodation for up to 22 (plus 2) of your family and friends. This means you can spend time with the people who mean most to you before your big day. Some of our wedding couples have held an informal family barbecue on Friday night, for example, as they meet relatives arriving from far afield, before celebrating in traditional style on Saturday, followed by a leisurely brunch on Sunday.

Imagine a house party for all your friends and family!

The style and budget of your wedding is entirely up to you.

This is your special day which will reflect your unique vision.  At Symondsbury Manor you are not obliged to use our caterers or our florists, as some wedding venues demand. Also, you are at liberty to bring your own wine and spirits as we charge no corkage. You can tailor your wedding exactly as you wish. For example, some Symondsbury Manor weddings have been entirely made by family members contributing food, decoration and music; some have been vintage-themed; some have been deluxe with cocktail bars and Scottish pipers. (Please note however, we are unable to allow amplified music in the grounds, and we have a curfew on noise at 11.30pm).

It is sometimes possible to be married in the village church next door or to have a Marriage Blessing (an affirmation of marriage vows), contact.

However, please note that since Jonathan and Kellys’ wedding we now cater only for smaller weddings.
