The Estate

The Manor House

Nestled in four acres of beautiful Dorset parkland, this secluded Georgian Manor House will make you feel like you’re escaping to the heart of the countryside. Grand yet inviting, the Manor House will add a touch of splendour to your unforgettable wedding day.

I just wanted to send you a message to say thank you for everything that you and the team did in the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself.  

You were always there to answer any of my questions and made sure everything was perfect.  On the day itself we didn’t have to think about a thing!

We had an awesome day yesterday so thanks for every single member of staff that made that happen for us.  I don’t think we could have topped the day anywhere else in the world at any other venue.  

Everyone guided us through so well and apart from the usual bride and groom nerves you guys made us and all our guests feel so relaxed and well looked after.

You kept me as calm as I could be and feel very lucky it wasn’t your day off!!

You are brilliant at your job!  Thank you!

I cannot thank you enough for how amazing you have been throughout the planning of my wedding. I feel incredibly blessed to have had my wedding at Parley Manor.  It was literally my dream come true.

Thank you for calming me at the highest peak of my nerves, for fluffing my dress, for your step by step meticulous guidance in making sure our day went smoothly and beautifully.

The Gardens

Enchanting gardens, brimming with English charm

Our traditional English gardens will play a pivotal role in the making of your wedding day. The immaculately kept gardens and lawns of the estate will act as your own private sanctuary, providing a picturesque background for your wedding photographs.

Your wedding party will be treated to a slice of the continent when they step through to our Italian walled garden, where sipping on a glass of Prosecco is almost mandatory. Here, surrounded by intricate statues and an elegant fountain, they’ll find the marquee in which to enjoy both the wedding breakfast and evening entertainment.

Our History

The Pavilion

It’s the little things that matter most

Set in the centre of our opulent gardens, our breathtaking pavilion provides the perfect romantic setting for your ceremony.

At Parley Manor, we appreciate the importance of the small details on your wedding day. Imagine being welcomed down the aisle by twinkling candles, with delicate rose petals lining the way. In the heat of a summer’s afternoon, the sides of the pavilion can be rolled up, enabling you and up to 150 guests to take in your stunning surroundings.

Your Ceremony

The Italian Walled Garden

A little taste of Italy

Our Italian walled garden is undoubtedly our worst kept secret, and yet still an area of absolute tranquillity. The garden is a meticulously maintained haven, which will transport you to another era.

Adorned with outdoor seating and garden furniture, our walled garden is the ideal place to relax with a glass of something sparkling on a warm summer’s evening.

Your Reception

The Marquee

An enchanted starlight canopy

Both your wedding breakfast and evening entertainment can be enjoyed in our luxurious marquee. The marquee can accommodate up to 150 seated guests, and up to 200 guests for your evening reception

The marquee has luxurious ivory drapes, making it the perfect blank canvas for any and all decorations that you have in mind. The canopy itself is lit, meaning you can dance the night away under the stars.
