Ceremonies

Civil wedding ceremonies are held in the magnificent Georgian splendour of Upton House, which is made available for your exclusive use. What better way to impress your guests?

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 whilst at the shoreline.

Wedding Packages

Are you looking for somewhere a bit different to celebrate your wedding day from start to finish? Upton House wedding packages offer the opportunity for you and your guests to remain in one place whilst your wedding day runs seamlessly from ceremony to wedding breakfast to evening reception, allowing you to focus on celebrating!

If a Walled Garden reception is more your style, you can hold your wedding ceremony in the grandeur of Upton House before leading your guests through the grounds to arrival drinks in your beautifully dressed marquee.

All prices include the services of the Wedding Team on your special day to attend to all the small details that make for a perfect, smooth-running celebration.

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.

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.  

If you are looking for a little more rustic, country charm for your Dorset wedding celebrations, the Walled Garden is the place to come! Available for Wedding Receptions during May, June, July and September, the garden is a spectacular riot of colourful plants and flowers just waiting for your personal touch.

Offered with exclusive use for you and your guests, and hidden from view of the rest of the Country Park, the Walled Garden is the perfect outdoor wedding venue. It gives you the flexibility to put together your own team of suppliers for your marquee, toilets, catering and entertainment. Don’t panic if you don’t know where to start – the Wedding Team are on hand with any assistance you might need. We can also help with suggestions to ensure you make the most of the Walled Garden on your special day.

The restoration work undertaken in 2012 include features that make the Walled Garden one of the easiest spaces to adapt to an outdoor wedding venue in Dorset. Water and electricity supply points are cleverly concealed so they do their job without becoming an eyesore, and the splash fountain can be active or not, it is up to you!
