Plucked from my dreams...
Beautiful venue Marshwood Manor felt like it was plucked from my dreams, everything about the venue is incredible from the views to the accommodation to the woodland to the people. It really is a special place and I feel blessed to be able to call it my wedding venue.

The best weekend ever!
The best weekend ever! We hired MM for our wedding weekend, and we had the best weekend ever. MM is a perfect venue, so flexible with what we wanted to do. The grounds were beautiful and so was the accommodation. We can’t thank Romla and her team enough for making our wedding run so smoothly! Katie our wedding planner was also amazing helping us plan the wedding timeline. She helped coordinate the suppliers prior to the wedding and also on the day. We just want to do it all over again! Thank

You honestly went above and beyond
I just wanted to say a huge Thankyou from the bottom of our hearts. You absolutely made our wedding a dream. It was so much more than we ever thought, each cottage was absolutely beautiful and so cosy and comfortable! You honestly went above and beyond for us, saving us when our PA system never showed up and helping me get a huge red stain out of my white wedding dress!

A dream venue with so much to offer
From the moment we stepped on to the grounds we knew this was the venue we wanted to get married. We hadn't actually looked at any others, but we didn't need to. Marshwood has the combination of classic and bohemian with an extra something that makes it magical. The ancient woodland won me over immediately, then to add on to that the gorgeous cottages and converted barn, it was almost too good to be true. The service provided is friendly and personable, the team work hard to bring your vision to life. Being able to transform Marshwood into your own style is great, but you also don't need to do a lot as it already gives so much. Our wedding weekend was more than we could have ever dreamed of and Marshwood will always have a special place in our hearts. Do not hesitate to visit this beautiful venue, we are certain you will feel the same. Thank you Romla and the team!
