Parley Manor Full Description
This grand yet elegant, family-run, Georgian Manor house is situated on what was once a large country estate, stretching from Hurn Forest to the River Stour. Today, the grounds are made up of four acres of parkland and gardens, offering you an exclusive secluded wedding venue, situated on the Dorset/Hampshire border. What better way to kick off your day than getting ready with your bridal party in our BRAND NEW Getting Ready Suite and Bridal Wagon? Then share your vows in the company of up to 150 of your closest friends and family members, in our intimate Pavilion. Set in the centre of our opulent gardens, our breathtaking pavilion provides the perfect romantic setting for your ceremony. The Pavilion is draped with luxurious fabric. On a warm summer’s day, the sides of the Pavilion can be rolled up in order to reveal your scenic surroundings which lends itself to romance, and can only be enhanced by your own personal touches. After your ceremony, you and your guests will be welcomed with drinks and canapés/ice cream in the English Country garden, whilst you celebrate being newlyweds. This is a perfect opportunity for your photographer to take the reins and capture the happiness of the day. Your wedding party can be announced into the Italian Walled Garden where you will find our Main Marquee which will be beautifully set up for your wedding breakfast. Whether it’s a formal sit-down meal or a relaxed luxury BBQ you’re after, our in-house caterers can meet all of your needs. Complete your special day with a disco or live music. Your family and friends will dance the evening away under our enchanted starlight canopy and enjoy a drink outside in the secluded walled garden and revel in the most amazing style. Your select few can then stay overnight in our NEWLY RENOVATED accommodation and continue the experience through to breakfast which is served in our Dining Room the following morning.

It simply was the best day ever
Where to begin?! The wedding of my dreams and I have Viktorija & her team to thank. The venue and the grounds are breathtaking and so well looked after. Parley and Merlins were absolutely fantastic and their attention to detail/food/service was fantastic.Everyone was so helpful and nothing was ever too much for them.Communication was brilliant from our 1st viewing through to our wedding day. Viktorija was a superstar and the whole day ran so smoothly because of her. She is an asset to Parley.

The whole day was perfect
From the beginning visiting parley manor with its stunning grounds on a wet morning in February, it’s charm shone through and our minds were made up this was the perfect place to share our special day with family and friends. The team at parley has everything covered and made wedding planning a walk in the park. On the day Viktorija was there every step of the way making sure everything was perfect. To the evening where Dave the team at merlins looked after us and our guests impeccably. The whole day was perfect even beyond our expectations. Thank you so much Craig & Louise
