Canford School wedding

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, this Grade 1 listed Manor House offers a unique setting for your Civil Ceremony and reception. Dine in the Great Hall, with the sweeping staircase and minstrels' gallery where the Prince of Wales once danced after a shooting party, or perhaps the more intimate splendor of The Old Library.  With exclusive use of the manor house and the formal lawns for your wedding day, take in the views to the arboretum and parkland whilst enjoying the company of your loved ones.

Our talented chefs from our in-house catering team will deliver your perfect menu using the finest local ingredients. Your wedding is tailored to you, with our designated team to assist throughout the planning and on the day management, make use of our extensive knowledge and network of professionals, or all other suppliers are completely up to you.

We would love to hear about your plans and show you around the venue. To book an appointment to have a tour and for more information, please contact the Weddings and Events team via the enquiry form below or by telephone on 01202 847509.
