In an ideal location, just half an hour's drive from Southampton yet retaining the charm and serenity of the countryside, Parley Manor is an ideal Dorset wedding venue. With wedding ceremonies, receptions and evening parties all hosted in the grand marquee (seats 150) from April to October, there's little to detract from the wedding you imagine.

A team of staff will be on hand to ensure your wedding is professionally coordinated, and without worry. A full list of prices and options is available via the manor's website.


Built in the year 1713, this beautiful Georgian house once dominated an estate which extended for over ten miles to the River Stour in the distant northwest. Whilst now only four acres remain, the house and grounds have lost none of their former grandeur and charm, and nowadays present one of the most splendid gems of the County of Dorset.


The Manor gardens, lined with artistically-crafted Italianate walls and feature pool, will play host to your wedding party exclusively from sunrise to sunset. The large, elegant marquee resides here, adorned with statues and stonemasonry to afford the occasion a singular and timeless aesthetic. Whilst hosting up to 150 seated guests for wedding ceremonies, the capacity extends to 200 for the duration of the evening celebrations.

In-house caterers provide superb cuisine, and pets and children are always welcome to any occasion. Should you require a photographer or additional services offered by the manor (see 'special offers') the staff at Parley will gladly accommodate your needs.


The expert chefs at Merlin's Catering present a broad range of menus, from wedding breakfasts to hog-roasts and barbecues, starting from £26.00 per head. Vegetarian or other dietary requirements will be observed to ensure all guests are well looked after.

Although independent external catering is not an option at Parley, a corkage fee of £8 per person is levied should you wish to bring your own wine to celebrate your big day. An extensive wine-list and comprehensive beverage menu is featured on the website.

  • Joy and Alec

    I just wanted to send you a message to say thank you for everything that you and the team did in the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself. You were always there to answer any of my questions and made sure everything was perfect. On the day itself we didn't have to think about a thing!

  • Becky and Steve

    We had an awesome day so thanks to every single member of staff that made that happen for us. I don't think we could have topped the day anywhere else in the world at any other venue. Everyone guided us through so well and, apart from the usual bride and groom nerves, you guys made us and all our guests feel so relaxed and well looked after.

  • Vivy and Mitch

    I cannot thank you enough for how amazing you have been throughout the planning of my wedding. I feel incredibly blessed to have had my wedding at Parley Manor. It was literally my dream come true.

    Thank you for calming me at the highest peak of my nerves. For fluffing my dress. For your step by step, meticulous guidance in making sure our day went smoothly and beautifully.
