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.

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

I couldn’t recommend parley manor enough.
I couldn’t recommend parley manor enough. It is the most stunning venue with the most lovely staff. From start to finish you are so welcomed and cared for and nothing is ever too much for them. I would especially like to thank Viktorija for helping the day run so smoothly and for reassuring me when I was nervous! She was honestly so kind and went out of her way to help. I would also like to thank David who is the front of house of Merlins, he is so sweet and accommodating and does anything possible to ensure that you are having the best day. Thankyou once again 🤍

The most incredible wedding venue
Nick and I spent a long time looking at different wedding venues and we hadn't really fallen in love with any that we had seen. We were almost ready to give up and choose one from our long list when we decided to view Parley Manor, our 20th and final venue. We knew immediately that this was where we wanted to get married. From day 1, the communication, service and kindness was impeccable. We felt that both Charlotte and Viktorija were with us every step of the way. Whatever questions we had were answered; no matter how silly they seemed. All of our guests reiterated our own feelings about the venue and how spectacular it was. We were fortunate with the weather and so leaving the ceremony marquee into glorious sunshine was amazing. And then later entering the Italian walled garden felt like we were on Cloud Nine. We chose to get married on a Monday and took advantage of staying in the Bridal Wagon the night before (myself and my bridesmaids) and many of us also stayed the night of the wedding in the beautiful manor itself. The rooms were exquisite and have so much character. We were then treated to a fabulous breakfast in the dining room the morning after which was the cherry on top of the already wonderful cake. Every single thing about Parley Manor is just fantastic and we will forever reminisce about our brilliant day there. Thank you Viktorija and the team at Parley Manor for giving us the most incredible wedding venue and service we could ever have asked for. Our wedding seemed positively faultless and a huge part of that was you. We can't thank you enough and our magical day would not have happened without you.

Best day ever !!
Parley manor really is without any doubt the best wedding venue in Dorset. The beautiful gardens and amazing grounds really impress from the moment you arrive. Second time round for us in our 50s and really wanted to have a day to remember.. From start to finish the whole team run your wedding day/evening effortlessly.. The getting ready suite for myself daughters and our two little flower girls was delightful. The ceremony was just how we wanted it from walking down together to our simple service. The food quality from merlins is first class.. so many guests commenting about the best meal they’d ever had at a wedding.. Our front of house for the day was David and he was so professional but great fun as we were a lively crowd of just over 100. The only downside was the next day when we had to leave!! We wanted to do it all again!! Thankyou Parley manor you are the best !!
