Full Description
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 16 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.

The best wedding venue & staff ever!
Jonathan, Georgia, Kath, Steve and the rest of the team at Dean's Court are absolutely wonderful. We had our wedding there on 10th September 2022 and it was the best day of our lives. Nothing in the lead-up was too much trouble and on the day, we felt so relaxed as it was impeccably run. I can't thank you all enough and would definitely recommend this venue for it's beauty, accommodation, great photo shots, ease of planning and the team!!!

Incredible Venue, Incredible Staff
We had an amazing weekend at deans court for our Wedding. The venue was incredible, the staff genuinely couldn't have been more helpful, down to the waiting staff on the day its self who were a delight. Jonathan and the team were completely flexible to implement any of our ideas and weve had so many comments on how the day flowed so nicely, which is really down to them. I couldn't recommend Deans Court more highly

Perfect in every way
Jonathan and the team at Deans Court could not have been more helpful in ensuring we had the best wedding day possible. The venue itself is beautiful and the gardeners do an amazing job of maintaining the grounds but it is the events team that made the difference to our day. Jonathan, Georgia, Kathryn and everyone else were knowledgeable, responsive and flexible. They were ready with advice but happy for us to steer the overall look and feel of the day that we wanted. In the days leading up to the big day the team were on hand to help decorate the marquee and our run through beforehand showed how organised everything is. It all left us feeling in safe hands and able to enjoy the time we had with each other and our loved ones.
