The feel

Milton Abbey is a truly magnificent setting for weddings and civil ceremonies located in one of Dorset’s most beautiful locations, offering a complete package in one location for your special day.

The stunning on-site Abbey church, founded by King Athelstan in 934, is available for Church of England wedding ceremonies at allocated times of the year including Easter, Summer, Autumn and Christmas. Alternatively, we are able to host civil ceremonies in our State Rooms. After the ceremony, guests can enjoy a drinks reception either on the Abbey lawn or inside the mansion house, followed by a wedding breakfast in the historic Abbot’s Hall. The Kings’ Room and Prince’s Room provide a dancing area and bar for the evening, and we offer exclusive use of the state rooms and mansion house lawn, including access for set up on the day before your wedding.

Our comprehensive package includes everything needed to create a truly special day to be forever treasured by you and your guests. Included in our package is drinks reception with canapes and Prosecco, a four-course wedding breakfast with wine, champagne for the toast, evening catering for your day guests, plus flowers and wedding stationery for the Abbot’s Hall. Also included is the assistance of our in-house Wedding Coordinator. Prices start from £840
