Full Description
With a choice of venues for your wedding celebration including the opportunity of a tipi in the grounds; a celebratory wedding breakfast and party in the Medieval Domus; an intimate dinner in the ancestral home of Lord Montagu or even a drinks reception in the National Motor Museum itself, Beaulieu really is a venue for everyone. The impressive 13th century Domus, our most popular wedding ceremony and reception venue, is perfect for 60 to 130 guests. With its secluded setting alongside the picturesque Beaulieu River, surrounded by immaculate grounds and historic cloister, it truly is a stunning backdrop to your special day. Inside the Domus the impressive wooden beams, dramatic stonework and colourful wall hangings give a real sense of history whilst still giving you the opportunity to style the space to reflect your own modern day wedding celebration. The Victorian Gardens, with wisteria arch, seasonal flowerbeds and themed topiary, provide many stunning photo opportunities. Licensed for civil ceremonies as well as having an adjacent Church, our wedding venue has everything to make your day something special.

Our Wedding Day was beautiful
Our wedding day was beautiful and it was managed perfectly by Inga, everything ran smoothly, the food was delicious and we all had a wonderful day & lucky enough had the most perfect weather in the beautiful grounds which we had many compliments on. We were very pleased that it was Inga running our day and we can’t thank her enough for everything she did for us. The Compass group team were also brilliant at helping us re-schedule our wedding date multiple times due to covid cancellations and offered to reserve a number of future dates for us until the restrictions eased.

Above our expectations, almost perfect
The venue itself provides a historic traditional backdrop, castle walls and amazing gardens, with the historic beaulieu Abbey joining the domus should you wish to get married in the church and host your reception at the domus, leiths provide a 5 star menu, the food is stunningly presented and tastes even better!! The staff accomidate every need you have, all very helpful and extremely friendly. Would do it all again to re live the experience.

A very good wedding venue
The Domus is where Monks lived back in the 1200s and 1300s, but non religious now and used for events such as weddings. We booked it for my daughters wedding last Saturday - absolutely stunning. The ceremony conducted by the Hampshire registrar team was superb, afterwards the food at the wedding breakfast was excellent. Emily, the Beaulieu events organiser, was very keen, enthusiastic and helpful. Ensuring the day and night went smoothly. I would recommend the Domus as a very good wedding venue.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

During the pandemic we created two weddings out of one wedding so that the couple could have two sets of separate guests attend different parts of their stunning wedding day. All of their family and friends got to share in their joy and it made the day even more special despite the restrictions.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Create your day about yourselves, your passions and what you as a couple want; it's your wedding day and your journey as a couple and your wedding should reflect that.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

It has to be the most beautiful and personal lavender scented hearts, made by the bride and embroidered with guests names to hang on the back of each chair as a place name. They were very special and the space smelt incredible.
