Choose from our selection of venues     

How many times have you looked through a weddings brochure and found there’s only one room to marry in? As one of the top Dorset wedding venues, we offer our clients a number of idyllic locations throughout the house and grounds, priding ourselves on our flexibility to meet the requirements for your perfect wedding day. The following locations are available to hire at St Giles House:

The house

Surrounded by centuries old fireplaces, iconic paintings and Georgian grandeur, St Giles House isn’t just one of the top wedding venues in Dorset. It is, undoubtedly, a masterpiece of Georgian design and architecture, crafted to perfection.

The park

There is something other worldly when you choose to marry among nature. We are one of the top wedding venues Dorset has to offer because of our grounds and the surrounding landscape, so why not permit our clients to enjoy them? Surrounded by birdsong and the scuttling sound of nature, wed in complete bliss among blossomed trees and blooming flowers.

The Grotto

We wouldn’t be one of the top Dorset wedding venues if we didn’t cater for the most intimate of wedding events. We know so many venues say they cater for intimate weddings, yet can only offer you a hall, which creates a feeling of emptiness. Our grotto forms part of the ‘pleasure grounds’ and like name like place, is a pleasure to marry in. With a romantic and intimate feeling, you can feel close to your select family and friends in a magical setting.

The Church

The church next to St Giles House provides a traditional and spiritual setting for you and your wedding guests. As one of the top wedding venues in Dorset, this truly is a unique venue.  Revived by a gothic architect, there is an understated magnificence to the church, and it will provide a truly symbolic setting for a traditional church wedding.

The all-important wedding reception

After a beautiful wedding ceremony follows an unforgettable wedding reception. As one of the top wedding venues Dorset, we will arrange all the catering for you. All you need to do it decide on a menu plan, and tell us how many guests are coming. 

You and your guests can dine in the main house, or opt to continue your wedding out in our glorious grounds with a spacious marquee. As one of the top Dorset wedding venues, we only supply our clients with the finest food and drink packages, making sure your day is special down to the last detail.

When the lights turn down low and the disco ball starts spinning, as one of the top wedding venues in Dorset, there are two options available for you and your guests at St Giles House.  Whether you want to dance the night away or retire with a brandy, the stone hall and the tapestry room are dedicated to catering for the different needs of you and your guests.
