The perfect wedding

Warmwell House is the ideal place for a true Dorset wedding, at the 13th century Holy Trinity church or indeed at the house itself. Enjoy your champagne reception in the Georgian Square Garden with sweeping views over the surrounding countryside. There’s an ideal space here for a traditional marquee for your Wedding Breakfast and speeches.  As evening starts to fall, guests head over to the Coach House for dancing, a rustic bar and chill-out space. There’s also a luxury amenity block with loos, pamper area and shower just a few steps from the Coach House which makes things so much easier if the weather doesn’t behave itself! All this has been designed with convenience in mind and to give a natural and varied flow to the day, making the most of the different aspects of the garden. The provision of the marquee is at your expense but this means that you get just want you want – the furniture, lighting, lining, carpet and accessories can be hand-picked by you to achieve exactly the look you’ve been dreaming of.
