A grand occasion

Summer Lodge is sufficiently large to rise effortlessly to the grand occasion, yet it has never lost the feel of a welcoming private home – whether you’re planning an impressive event for up to 70 guests, or a more intimate affair for between two and 24. You can also choose a marquee in the garden for up to 200 guests.

Equally important, there is a close knit team of experienced staff with all the skills, talent and enthusiasm required to make every moment utterly magical. Their attention to detail and passion for excellence are sure to exceed your every expectation.

The ceremony

Hold your ceremony in our local church, in the hotel's elegant Drawing Room, the intimate Dorchester Suite or weather permitting, outside in the hotel gardens with the idyllic Dorset countryside as your backdrop.

Saint Osmund's Church is located in the village, just 100 yards from the hotel, with the Drawing Room and Dorchester Suite in the hotel main building.

Intimate weddings

For intimate weddings, the beautiful and serene surroundings of Summer Lodge are perfectly suited to small celebrations as well as large lavish affairs. Whether you are opting for a celebration for just the two of you together, or with your nearest and dearest, our dedicated staff will make sure your special moment together is everything you could wish for.
