Detailed Description

At Mapperton House and Gardens, your wedding will be effortlessly elegant and unforgettable. Mapperton is an enchanting manor house built in the 1540s and surrounded by picturesque gardens, which were used as the backdrop for the most romantic period drama of 2015, Far from the Madding Crowd. The site is also home to All Saints Church, a medieval church boasting stained glass windows, beautiful carvings and angels on either side of the alter. Explore further and you’ll find pretty paths leading to archways and ponds, angular trees lining your route and the scent of roses and lavender hanging in the air, making this an exquisite setting that feels both sophisticated and welcoming. You’ve free reign of the grounds on your special day, and can glide seamlessly from celebration to celebration. From your civil ceremony in the Garden Pavilion to an intimate blessing at the candelabra-lit church, to your wedding breakfast on the Croquet Lawn and drinks in the Orangery, the beauty of Mapperton will perfectly frame your big day. There’s ample space to tailor the wedding of your dreams to Mapperton – pop up a marquee for your meals, have a hog roast or serve cocktails and canapés with an excellent view of the rolling hills above. Pose for pictures under swooping branches or set up a photo booth, and let children and grown-ups alike make memories with you, exploring secret gardens and hidden grottoes as the sun sets.
