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.

Blown away
We celebrated our wedding at Parley in June 22. Blown away doesn’t even come close to how we felt about our wedding day!! Parley go above and beyond to make your dreams a reality. Viktorija was so calm and professional and couldn’t do more for us. She made me feel so calm and relax on the morning. Her Organisation was impeccable. Couldn’t recommend her any more. We were very lucky to have her. As well as merlins catering we’re incredibly professional with the most delicious food 😋 a special shout out from the merlins team has to go to David for being so amazing at communicating with us. Giving us space when needed and just always being there when needed too. He was also superb at organising the guests, listening and providing us with every need we had. Highly recommend parley Manor for your wedding

We had the most amazing day here at Parley Manor
We had the most amazing day here at Parley Manor. Not only is the wedding venue just beautiful the staff are incredible. Everything ran smoothly and the experience we had was just beyond anything I could imagine. Special shout out to Charlotte, if you are lucky enough to have her organise your wedding you are in for a treat she is just wonderful and such a lovely person. Every interaction we had with her was always memorable and she was always responding to questions and queries with such efficiency and kindness. We loved the venue but we knew the wedding day would be even better having someone so lovely and organised directing everything for us. I want to do it all over again ❤️

We fell in love at first sight
Parley manor is simply stunning, whatever time of year you visit. We went to view the venue in December 2020 and we knew this was the place we wanted to get married. The gardens are immaculately kept and the grounds are a quintessential English delight. We can’t wait to get married here in April 2022 and can’t thank the staff enough for their support and suburb service all the way through. Good luck Parley you thoroughly deserve to win! Sam xx
