The Setting

Nestled in a pocket of six acres of woodlands, meadows and country fields, Abbots Court is a slice of Dorset heaven.

Located just off the A31, a mere 14 miles from Wimborne Minster or Poole makes it easily accessible for guests travelling to and from the wedding.

The Vibe

Weddings at Abbots Court offer guests the unique experience to enjoy a weekend (minimum) long experience with full and exclusive use of their country house, with onsite accommodation for 18-21 guests (plus the option of Glamping Pods in their glamping area).

Choose from their converted Victorian Stables or the Walled Garden for your ceremony, followed by the Pavilion and Walled Garden for your Wedding Breakfast and Evening Reception. Their part glazed pavilion boasts uninterrupted views of the garden with an outside bar, pizza oven, fire pit and p├ętanque lawn, all softly lit with subtle festoon. Round tables and a long top are available for the Wedding Breakfast with cross back oak chairs, subtle draping and impressive lighting. A fully stocked bar, designated stage, dancefloor and posh toilets mean you have everything on site for the perfect day.

The house itself sleeps up to 18 (plus 3 sofa beds) and they can also offer 6 Glamping Pods & 4 Bell Tents, each sleeping 2 beyond the Walled Garden – perfect for friends!

All catering is outsourced, and they have a varied, but excellent, list of suppliers that will ensure your day goes without a hitch. Food trucks for the evening reception is not a problem.

For the daytime reception, choose from their drinks packages or take your own Wine/Champagne for a corkage charge (limits apply). There will also be two bars operating on the day of the wedding.

Live bands are not an issue, and there will be a raised area by the dancefloor (in the Pavilion) for them to set up. Please note they are licensed for amplified music until 11pm with all guests off site by midnight, apart from those staying in the house and glamping pods.
