We had the most magical day. Everything was more than perfect to the point it exceeded any expectations we had. I felt like a total princess and you were all just so amazing. You’re great at what you do and we can both say we had the best day of our lives.

Our wedding day more than exceeded our expectations, it was the best day ever! Thank you so much for everything you did for us in the run up and on the day. You do a fabulous job and Parley Manor is the perfect wedding venue. Everyone had the best time and all our guests complimented on how well organised the whole day was.

We just wanted to write to say we had the most amazing wedding day at Parley Manor. It was more amazing than we ever imagined. Please pass on our thanks to the whole team who made us feel incredibly special and many of our guests commented on the fantastic service and venue.

Millie & Ed Saturday 23rd September 2023

Not only was the food and drink itself exceptional, what really made the day was the professionalism and helpfulness of the staff. Everyone we encountered was super friendly, hard working and making sure everything was just right. Again this was a common compliment from our guests too, not just ourselves.

Mr & Mrs Collins Thursday 29th June 2023

Our day was more magical than we had imagined.  Thank you so much to Parley Manor and Merlins Catering who made our day incredible.


Danielle & Ryan Saturday 10th June 2023

There is no words to describe how amazing our wedding day was at Parley Manor, from the beginning you all have been so friendly, accommodating and so quick to respond to anything we needed answering. Viktorija as our wedding coordinator we honestly couldn’t have asked for better, you’ve been amazing from start to finish nothing was ever too much.

Merlins was just exquisite, Dave was amazing and the food was unbelievable the drinks were flowing and a lot of people commented it was the best food and drinks they’d ever had at a wedding. Our breakfast the next morning was perfect and the chef did an amazing job.

Hayley & Thomas Saturday 20th May 2023

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!

Olivia & Alex Saturday 7th May 2022

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 Father of the Bride I couldn’t have been happier with the whole day.  All the guests commented that it’s the best wedding they have been to, so once again thank you.

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.
