Welcome to Weddings at Milton Abbey

A prestigious and truly beautiful setting for weddings and civil marriage ceremonies in the heart of the Dorset countryside, located just outside the historic village of Milton Abbas, midway between Dorchester and Blandford.

Our unique site, nestled in a picturesque, wooded valley, is home to a stunning Mansion House and magnificent Abbey church (founded by King Athelstan in 934).  Surrounded by expansive grounds landscaped by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, it offers the perfect venue for your entire day of celebrations.

Marquees can be accommodated if desired and we offer a fireworks package as an exciting conclusion to your day.

Our offering includes a comprehensive wedding package containing everything you need to create a truly special and memorable day, and also includes the services of our dedicated Wedding Coordinator and Events Manager, who will work with you to create your perfect day from start to finish. If required, on-site residential accommodation can be arranged for the bridal party, and/or wider guests, on the nights before and after your ceremony.

We would love to welcome you to Milton Abbey for a private tour so we can show you all that we have to offer you and to talk through your plans for your wedding day. For more information or to arrange a tour, please contact our Events team, via events@miltonabbey.co.uk or 01258 880484.

We look forward to meeting you.
