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!

A gorgeous hidden gem in the Dorset countryside
Oliver L. 5.0 View More A gorgeous hidden gem in the Dorset countryside My husband and I got married September 2021 at Marshwood Manor and had the most amazing experience there. Romla was wonderful from the start and was super accommodating and helpful with all our ideas and requests. We had a coordinator as well from MM, so having someone with actual knowledge of the venue made the whole process much smoother. The venue itself is stunning, so many of our guests said the ceremony spot in particular was magical! The cottages are beautifully done and everyone felt like they were on a mini holiday. None of us wanted to leave! An absolutely wonderful venue and we were so well looked after.
