Lotus Photography UK 20220507 Gabbi & Piers Marshwood Manor Wedding Bridport Dorset 303 WM
Exclusive Use

A wedding at Marshwood Manor is three days of Victorian grandeur and rustic simplicity.

Marshwood Manor offers a comprehensive solution for your wedding with luxury accommodation, an unspoiled rural location, and a choice of fabulous event spaces.  We are always an ‘exclusive use’ venue. For the entire time you are with us, you and your guests will have total privacy. All our wedding parties have the run of the venue from noon on Friday to noon on Sunday - plenty of time for suppliers and guests alike with no rushing. A limited number of weddings each year ensures each couple has all our attention and focus, for the weekend itself and in the days leading up.

We believe the venue we have created is something unique, as is each wedding held here. We therefore offer no set packages. Instead, we have a list of trusted, affiliated suppliers from whom you can pick and choose or we welcome outside suppliers you have found to create your perfect wedding. We believe the key to delivering a luxury experience is maintaining an outstanding level of service to match our beautiful venue. A supreme level of service is what sets Marshwood Manor apart. We will ensure there is an excess of staff on hand, and those staff are trained to our exacting standards so requests are met with calm smiles and executed with ease.

As soon as you have booked your wedding with us, we shall send you the details of our hand-picked personal wedding co-ordinator to help you bring your dreams into reality. - This includes in-person or virtual meetings (whichever is more convenient for you) and an on-site meeting to discuss logistics,  regular check-ins via email to discuss progress, a wedding-planning timeline and checklist, co-ordination of suppliers,  & professional event management at Marshwood Manor on the day of the wedding for 12 hours. Your planner will be supported by members of the Marshwood Manor events team on hand to make sure that everything runs smoothly on the day and during the set up. After chatting to our co-ordinators you can choose which one will work best with you (subject to their availability) and they will then be assigned to you. If you wish them to provide additional planning services, that is no problem and may be discussed directly with them. We cannot stress enough the difference this service will make to every aspect of your wedding and we are so excited for you to experience the level of service a Marshwood Manor wedding planner can give.
