Full Description
Civil wedding ceremonies are held in the magnificent Georgian splendour of Upton House, which is made available for your exclusive use. Our largest state room, the Drawing Room, can hold a maximum of 70 guests whilst our Study is the perfect option for more intimate ceremonies of up to 40 guests. Whichever you choose, members of the Wedding Team will be on hand to ensure that everything goes smoothly for the most important day of your life, leaving you to simply enjoy it! After your ceremony, you are invited to make use of the grand Entrance Hall and stunning parkland and gardens for your wedding photographs. For those special ‘couple’ shots, you are free to wander down to the beautiful Walled Garden or capture Poole Harbour as a backdrop from the Park at the shoreline. Whether you have held your ceremony with us or have married elsewhere, Upton House can be hired exclusively for your Reception. With access to the five ground floor rooms, you will feel as if it is your very own home for the day, creating the perfect ambience for your celebrations. The Drawing Room and adjoining Library are able to accommodate 70 guests for a delicious sit down Wedding Breakfast of your choice. Our fantastic in-house caterers will be delighted to discuss your ideas, tastes and budget and come up with the perfect menu for your first meal as husband and wife, from a full formal 3 course wedding breakfast to afternoon cream tea and delicious buffet options (see our latest sample menus). Up to 150 guests can be invited for your evening celebrations and this is where the House can create a particularly wonderful atmosphere for your special day. Your choice of entertainment, be it a band or DJ, a casino or even a photo booth, can all be accommodated in one of the many state rooms and we are happy to discuss all your ideas for making your day personal to you.

The day of a lifetime!
We’re so happy with the service we received, from start to finish. We were able to tailor everything to our preferences, and everyone was so flexible. On the day, everything was like a well-oiled machine! You really did help to make our day perfect, so thank you so much.

We couldn't have imagined the day going any better!
The whole experience of organising our day was made so easy by the staff at Upton, especially when done on such a short timescale. The day was relaxed and enjoyable, and went so smoothly. The staff were always checking to ensure we were happy and if there was anything else that could be done.

A perfect day in a perfect setting!
We cannot fault the service that we were given from the initial enquiry through to our wedding day. From the outset we were able to speak on the phone or email the staff at Upton house and we always got a speedy reply. Most of our requests were met with very few exceptions (imposed restrictions due to the listed nature of the building). On the day itself all the staff were so helpful and it all seemed quite seamless. We barely noticed that they were there, and we have no complaints at all about the service given. From the outset the service from the catering team was exceptional. From our first meeting with Simon we were left feeling very happy that all would be good on the day. Communication and flexibility of the menu was great and on the day itself Simon was able to juggle our last-minute request for an open bar very well. The food was lovely, and the service was just right as far as we were concerned.

Fantastic Day!
We had a fantastic day! 10/10 across the board. We couldn’t have picked a better, reasonably priced venue for our day. Thank you to Poppy especially, as she was always there to answer any questions I had, right up to and on the day itself. Also, thank you to all the staff that set up the room and served the wedding breakfast!
