Tony Diprose appointed Director of Sport and Physical Wellbeing from January 2020
With its ancient, graceful buildings set among 250 acres of landscaped grounds in the beautiful county of Dorset, Canford offers a stunning venue for your entire wedding.
Tracing its origins to the Domesday Book, the Grade 1 listed Manor House offers a unique setting for your civil ceremony while the 14th century Norman church provides the option of a religious service. For your reception, choose the baronial Great Hall, with its sweeping staircase and minstrels’ gallery where the Prince of Wales once danced after a shooting party, or perhaps the more intimate splendour of the Long Gallery. With exclusive use of the grounds for your wedding day, there is the option of an outdoor reception by the fountain on the Sunken Lawn with views to the arboretum and parkland beyond.
Your wedding will be tailored to you. Our catering is in-house and our Michelin-trained chefs will work with you to create your bespoke menu. From there, you can make use of our extensive knowledge and network of local professionals or choose your own suppliers. Our aim is simply to create your perfect day.
