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.

All the team at Parley Manor have been so incredibly helpful and kind through planning our wedding! Everyone has been so helpful with date changes and restrictions.  The most beautiful venue to get married in.  Wish we could do it all over again! Thank you so much.

It was amazing thank you so much for all you and the team did to make it the wedding of our dreams.

Zara & Daniel Saturday 9th April 2022

We wanted to send an email to say thank you so much for supporting us to have the best wedding we could’ve wished for.  James and I had the best day, with no hiccups and it was amazing from start to finish.

Nearly all of our guests commented on how amazing the venue was and how nice the food was…..something which is usually hard to impress everyone with!

You, yourself, were so helpful and on hand at all times before and on the wedding day so thank you. We would also like to mention Sophie from Merlins as well. She was brilliant and her team were amazing with the little ones. 


Chelsie & James Thursday 26th May 2022

It was the most fantastic day and guests have had nothing but compliments for the venue and staff.

We can’t thank you enough for making the day so special, it was a day to never forget! 

Thank you so much again.

I thought I would just drop you a line to say thank you so much for making my Daughter’s wedding so beautiful last weekend and so well organised, your attention to detail was superb and as the father of the bride I couldn’t have been more happier with the whole day for my guests as they all commented that it’s the best wedding they have been to so once again thank you.

We can’t get over how perfect yesterday was. From the moment we arrived at Parley Manor, it was like a dream. Viktorija, you were so welcoming and friendly, you immediately calmed my nerves! All of our guests commented on what a smooth operation the whole day was (even with a couple of torrential downpours throughout the day, the team knew exactly what to do in those situations and no one even noticed!)

We thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay at Parley too. The rooms were stunning.  It was such a pleasure to wake up there and enjoy breakfast the next day. 

Thank you so much for making our day so wonderful and so stress-free. From the Dressing Room, the Manor, and the grounds – it was simply beautiful.

I cannot explain how amazing you were on the day. You kept it all organised, relaxed and yet personal on the day and this must be a harder task than you make it look!

We waited what felt like forever for our day, due to covid, but my god it was worth it.  All of our guests have said just how outstanding the whole day was, and we know that’s all down to the effort and details you all put in for each and every couple.

We recommend you to others and my cousin has already booked for next August.  So we can’t wait to return as a guest knowing just how amazing Parley Manor and you all are.

We are so glad we picked your venue. 

Kind regards

Our wedding day was everything we dreamt of and more, your team are incredible and made our day so special. 


Becky & Michael Thursday 31st March 2022

Honestly, there aren’t enough words to express how amazing you and the team were.  The day was beyond perfect in every way and it wouldn’t have happened without you.

The memories we will treasure won’t just be of the day, but all of your love and support up to that point. We will forever be grateful for everything. Thank you so so much for having us!

And we will definitely see you soon!  Much love Mr & Mrs O’Sullivan xxx

I honestly don’t know where to start, I cannot thank you and the Parley team enough for the best day ever. The way you and your team manage the day is beyond perfect. Having you there at our first viewing of Parley Manor was a big factor in our decision-making because we knew you would make the day completely stress-free – and we were so right.

I know everyone tells you your wedding day will be the best day of your life, but wow it was honestly better than we could have imagined. We are so happy we picked Parley, it was stunning (the weather definitely helped) and everyone was so complimentary of the venue, the staff and the food!

Although I am slightly happy that it is all done and now I don’t have to think ‘wedding’ anymore, I would love to do the day 100 times over! I think having the option to get ready there makes it extremely special – watching all of the guests arrive!

Olivia & Alex Saturday 7th May 2022

Paul and I got married at Parley Manor on 3rd June 2021 & had our reception on the 25th March 2022.  Charlotte and her team were amazing they made the day feel so special I would highly recommend getting married here!

Donna & Paul Friday 25th March 2022

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect in every way imaginable.

Parley Manor is absolutely beautiful and the perfect wedding venue.

From the bottom of our hearts we really do thank you and appreciate everything.

Take care and kindest regards

Parley Manor. Wow!! I couldn’t recommend this amazing venue any more. From the beginning of our planning, to meeting Viktorija to our big day, the organisation and care was incredible. They made sure every little detail was correct and made the whole experience stress free. Every staff member was extremely professional and made sure our day was perfect.  We can’t thank Viktorija enough for making our dreams a reality. Highly recommend!

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.

The Italian Walled Garden

A little taste of Italy

Our Italian walled garden is undoubtedly our best 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.

Parley Manor History

A charming Georgian Manor house, preserved in time

Built in the early 1700s and lovingly cared for, Parley Manor will make you feel like you’ve stepped back to times gone by.

This grand yet elegant, family run, Georgian Manor house is situated on what was once a large country estate, stretching from Hurn Forest to the River Stour. Today, the grounds are made up of four acres of parkland and gardens, offering you an exclusive secluded wedding venue, situated on the Dorset/Hampshire border. As you sip champagne in the traditional English gardens, you’ll be reminded of the countless celebrations that have come before yours, and your special day will become a part of the estate’s grand history.

The old and the new work in perfect harmony at Parley Manor. The manor itself provides a splendid backdrop for your photographs, while the canopy for your evening reception is well equipped to host a 21st-century celebration.

In close proximity to Christchurch, Poole, and Bournemouth, Parley Manor is well connected to the outside world, making it convenient for wedding guests. In addition, Parley Manor’s expansive grounds and clear blue skies will make you feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
