Milton Abbey

The feel

Milton Abbey is a picture-perfect venue for the discerning couple who want a unique wedding ceremony, set in the beautiful Dorset countryside, whether you marry in the on-site 14th Century Abbey or in one of our beautiful state rooms.

We offer the opportunity to get married and celebrate with your family and friends on the same site. The Abbey is just a stone’s throw from the Mansion House and the historic 15th Century Abbot’s Dining Hall, the location of your wedding breakfast.

Our extensive grounds, designed by famed landscaper Capabilty Brown, overlook the rolling hills and woods of the surrounding countryside for photos you will treasure forever.

At Milton Abbey our team of chefs, led by Executive Chef Ade will prepare delicious canapes accompanied by Prosecco and served on the Mansion House lawns. This is followed by a bespoke wedding breakfast and a glass of Champagne to toast the happy couple. During the evening our popular speciality cheese table is presented with accompaniments for all your guests to enjoy.

A Wedding Coordinator available to assist with your planning and on the wedding day.

A note on pricing: Our prices are simple, transparent and have no hidden surprises! We charge a flat-rate venue fee from £900, depending on date, then a ‘per person package rate’ from £100 to £140. All of our packages include the ceremony, a drinks reception with canapes, a champagne toast, three-course wedding breakfast, a cheese table for your evening guests, and flowers. Stationary, meal-time wine and other extras are also included in our peak-time weekend packages.
