Deans Court is set in romantic, semi-wild gardens. The Wedding marquee lies next to an ancient lake, where monks used to fish 1,000 years ago. Today, the venue retains a dreamy, rural atmosphere – but only a stone’s throw from the centre of the pretty Dorset market Town of Wimborne, with its famous Minster. The venue fee is virtually all-inclusive, and covers everything you need to hold a Country Wedding in a marquee, apart from the food and drink. One of our main strengths lies in the fact that we can organise everything for you – even flowers from our garden, and on-site accommodation for the Wedding party (up to 12 people in our Cottages, and further 14 in our Gate House. Deans Court is a private family home, so you can rest assured that the venue is yours exclusively for your day. Every wedding here is unique because it is designed by the Bride & Groom, with the help of our events team.

Planning will take up as much time and energy as you let it - if you enjoy planning that's great ... but if not, don't let it take over, it doesn't need to.

Every guests' place name was a picture of that guest as a child, with a personal note on the back.

I think that our marquee garden - it's right next to our ancient pond - giving the perfect mix of indoor and outdoor space.
