Parley Manor

This stunning Georgian Manor House was constructed in the 1700s. Set within 4 acres of gardens and enchanting parkland and laid with beautiful trees, flowers and lawns, as well as a lake, your guests can relax and enjoy the secluded surroundings as they celebrate your special day.

Sopley Mill

Having recently been renovated, Sopley watermill provides guests with spectacular water meadow views. Couples can hire the whole venue, enabling them to have complete freedom.

Upon arrival guests can relax with a champagne reception in the comfortable ground floor bar, while a sit down wedding breakfast for up to 100 people can be catered for on the top floor. The 2nd floor, which has been licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies, can also host up to 100 guests and be transformed into a dance floor for your evening entertainment. The mill is versatile enough for couples to create exactly the day they want. A particular favourite for Nick Rutter Sopley Mill wedding photographer.

Guests can go on to stay in one of the many hotels or B&Bs in the surrounding areas.

Highcliffe Castle

Grade 1 listed and situated on a cliff top, Highcliffe Castle really is spectacular. The venue was built in the 19th century and offers guests access to the beautiful sandy beach below.

Romantic and picturesque, the castle has been lovingly restored and sets the scene for some simply stunning photography, as any Bournemouth photographer will agree.

The bride and groom can choose to hold their ceremony any day of the week and either continue their wedding celebrations in the castle itself, or move on to another venue for the remainder of the day.
