Full Description
Chaffeymoor Grange offers a magical and unforgettable venue for your wedding celebrations. We have no rigid formula and aim to be as flexible as possible, giving you the opportunity to create your own bespoke day. We have 2 rooms licensed for civil marriage and partnership ceremonies. Choose from the impressive oak panelled drawing room which can hold up to 80 guests or the intimate dining room which will hold up to 40 guests. Reception drinks on the terrace overlooking the ornamental pond may be followed by a wedding breakfast for up to 45 guests in the house or up to 80 guests in a marquee on the lawns. Alternatively, an informal fork buffet or hog roast for up to 60 guests can be accommodated in the gardens and house, without the need for a marquee. Dinner may be followed by dancing to a live band or disco in the Oak Room. Please note, our licence does not allow music outside and all loud amplified music in the house must finish by midnight. We are happy to assist with all aspects of organisation from marquee hire to recommendations for florists, bands and discos. We have several approved caterers who can provide everything from a barbecue or hog roast to a formally served wedding breakfast and you are welcome to bring all your own drinks. The house and gardens are exclusively yours for the whole weekend, with the 10 bedrooms comfortably accommodating up to 20 close friends and family. Pricing is based on a 3-night weekend rental from Friday afternoon to Monday morning and includes the following: • 3 nights self catering accommodation for up to 20 adults (and 4 additional children) • Ceremony held in the Oak Room or the Dining Room (please note, in addition, the Dorset Registration Service charges a fee of approximately £400.00) • All furniture moving on the day of the wedding and furniture returned the day after • You may supply all your own alcohol and we dispose of all bottles etc • Services of a Wedding Co-ordinator on the day

Stunning Venue
We recently had our wedding at Chaffeymoor Grange (35 people, with 20 staying for three nights) and can't praise it enough. - The house is spacious, clean, beautiful and tastefully decorated. The Oak room is breathtaking. The kitchen is also extremely well equipped (so much so that we were able to bake our wedding cake there, the night before!) - The gardens too were wonderful, with lots of space to hang out and play a wide variety of games. - By far the biggest selling point for anyone wanting to have their wedding there is the owners. Lindsay and Rik are incredibly kind, helpful, professional, and efficient. (For example, we needed to move large amounts of furniture in and out of the Oak room on several occasions during the wedding day, and it somehow happened without our ever noticing!) The guests were also stunned by the venue and I would highly highly recommend it.

Loved Every Minute
The most amazing wedding weekend venue! We absolutely loved getting married at chaffeymoor grange. Lindsay and Rick were so helpful in the run up and even helped us out with playing the music for the ceremony. They were so friendly and happy to give advice and recommendations which were gladly received. Our guests loved the venue and all had beautiful rooms, it was so nice that we could spend the time before and after the wedding in this beautiful house with our nearest and dearest rather than having to rush around. We spent quality time together, cooking on the Friday night and playing pool and a brunch and walk to the pub on the Sunday. It was amazing that the whole wedding could take place in one place- saved the cost and hassle of transport. We got married in the oak room which we decorated with fairy lights, champagne and photos outside in the breathtaking grounds, dinner in the dinning room and party in the oak room/ games room. The whole house is beautifully kept, well equipped, clean, spacious and the most incredible place for an intimate wedding! We had 20 guests staying over and attending the ceremony and breakfast and a further 30 cane for the party in the evening where we set up an open bar. So pleased we could get married there, we had the best day ever and loved how flexible it was- we weren’t tied in to any particular caterers or bar or anything, we got to pick everything ourselves so it was exactly what we wanted. Loved every minute, can’t say thank you enough!

Fabulous Wedding Weekend
Spent an absolutely fantastic long weekend celebrating the wedding of Sonya & Kevin with family and friends. The website does not do this place justice. Location, ambience, facilities are second to none; with tremendous support (catering, bbq) from local businesses.
