Full Description
With exclusive hire from Friday to Sunday, Moonacre becomes totally yours to host a full weekend of celebrations! Licensed for outdoor civil ceremonies you can be married surrounded by nature and up to 250 of your friends and family. Ceremonies can take place on our wildwood platform with natures best on offer surrounding you with trees bursting with leaves of green and seasonal flowers or inside the eagles nests, a purpose built wooden teepee making an intimate option sheltered from the English weather. Situated on our main field is our ready to use marquee. Our marquee has a traditional look on the outside but a rustic barn interior with draped chiffon roofing providing plenty of space for feasting, lounging and dancing! Included in all our exclusive hire options are also 6 unique and quirky pieces of accommodations. Additional to these guests can also pitch their own tents in our group camping or rent one of our glamping bell tents! We encourage you to book our weekend hire which gives you and your guests the chance to really unwind together on the Friday night around the camp fire alight with pre wedding excitement before getting up and ready for the big day! All our hire options give you exclusive use and your time on site can be used however you wish!

Very tranquil setting for a beautiful wedding!
Very tranquil especially in the gorgeous treehouse, nestled away in Dorset’s greenery… you’d never believe that you’re close to civilisation in the slightest! The site itself is full of natural beauty and wildlife.

A honour to walk my daughter down the aisle
I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day for my daughters July wedding. It was the hottest day of the year making Moonacre an even more perfect venue. Walking my daughter down the aisle was such a surreal experience made even better by the natural surroundings. One of the most naturally beautiful venues I have ever been too. We loved it so much my eldest daughter has decided to get married here too making Moonacre a new family marriage tradition.

The space is amazing… well kept and Suitable to keep all ages entertained. Even the bar staff are super helpful and very friendly. I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
