Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
Our main entrance is favoured by lots of couples for a confetti moment however there are so many nooks and crannies and special places that is really down to personal preference. We are currently having a wedding swing made for a grand old tree n the middle of the main lawn and we suspect this will quickly become a firm favourite - follow us on social media to see how this progresses.
What is your venue's most unique feature?
Its history linked to beer and brewing; nursing and women suffrage. It is now an independent prep school so it has lots of character and stories that appeal to lots of different people. Guests always find the venue interesting and want to hear more - its been in Dorchester since 1893 yet few local residents have seen behind the private walls.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
Our commitment to every couple and delivering their wedding as they see it
