The Larmer Tree is set in the heart of the Cranborne Chase, an area of outstanding natural beauty on the Wiltshire/ Dorset border, well away from the hustle and bustle of busy modern life. This beautiful 11-acre garden, created by General Pitt Rivers in 1880, was one of the first Victorian Pleasure Gardens and is an extraordinary example of Victorian extravagance and now home to free roaming peacocks and pair of macaws.
The Larmer Tree’s 11 acre garden and two elegant halls, The Jubilee Hall and The New Pavilion, are available for Weddings and Receptions on an exclusive use basis, all year round.
They offer the most unique setting for a relaxed and informal, quintessential English Country Wedding. Celebrate in the company of your family and friends with pimms, deck chairs and garden games in high summer; or with mulled cider, hot canapés and roast venison in deepest winter. Whatever the weather or season, you can be assured of a first class personal service. This magical venue is a wonderful setting for such an important occasion and offers an experience hard to match.
Civil ceremonies can be held inside the Jubilee Hall or The General’s Room and outside in the Roman Temple or the Lower Indian Room. The choice of your marriage room is personal and will depend on your guest numbers, but be assured the Larmer Tree have total flexibility whatever the weather!
King John's House is available to hire out for weddings and is only a short drive from the Larmer tree gardens.
A stay in King John’s House is unlikely to ever be forgotten. Spending any time within the walls of this extraordinary property is an utterly unique experience. Full of atmosphere and character, each room exudes a tremendous sense of history with many fine period features. Set in 3 acres of landscaped gardens on the edge of the charming village of Tollard Royal, the house now boasts a ‘bridal suite’ in the Japanese Water Garden, separate from the house. This house is perfect for a special celebration be it a ‘milestone’ birthday, important wedding anniversary or a large family reunion.
Don't worry we always have a back up plan in place. We will always try and make best efforts to get you outside as much as we can to enjoy your ceremony and reception on our lawns but it's very weather dependent. If you are due to have your ceremony and reception outside and the weather is not looking great we can offer the beautiful Victorian Jubilee hall, with its timeless charm, canopied ceiling, Nepalese carvings and beautiful bejewelled mirror - it's truly an stunning setting.
Yes we do, if you are looking for a smaller ceremony and reception for up to 30 guests, you can book the gardens from Monday through to Thursday until 4:30pm. This is for non-exclusive use and includes a marquee on the lawn, garden games, garden furniture and full access to all buildings for photography.
Micro Weddings are available all year round and information is available on request.
