Civil wedding ceremonies are held in the magnificent Georgian splendour of Upton House, which is made available for your exclusive use.
Our largest state room, the Drawing Room, can hold a maximum of 70 guests whilst our Study is the perfect option for more intimate ceremonies of up to 40 guests.
Whichever you choose, members of the Wedding Team will be on hand to ensure that everything goes smoothly for the most important day of your life, leaving you to simply enjoy it!
After your ceremony, you are invited to make use of the grand Entrance Hall and stunning parkland and gardens for your wedding photographs. For those special ‘couple’ shots, you are free to wander down to the beautiful Walled Garden or capture Poole Harbour as a backdrop from the Park at the shoreline.
Whether you have held your ceremony with us or have married elsewhere, Upton House can be hired exclusively for your Reception.
With access to the five ground floor rooms, you will feel as if it is your very own home for the day, creating the perfect ambience for your celebrations.
The Drawing Room and adjoining Library are able to accommodate 70 guests for a delicious sit down Wedding Breakfast of your choice. Our fantastic in-house caterers will be delighted to discuss your ideas, tastes and budget and come up with the perfect menu for your first meal as husband and wife, from a full formal 3 course wedding breakfast to afternoon cream tea and delicious buffet options (see our latest sample menus).
Up to 150 guests can be invited for your evening celebrations and this is where the House can create a particularly wonderful atmosphere for your special day. Your choice of entertainment, be it a band or DJ, a casino or even a photo booth, can all be accommodated in one of the many state rooms and we are happy to discuss all your ideas for making your day personal to you.
