It’s the season for movie mayhem, after BTTF, it’s Toy Story (and more) a wedding doesn’t have to formal, it’s a day with family and friends to be enjoyed just the way you want. 

Every wedding at Athelhampton is carefully tailored to our clients  particular requirements...

I hope that speed is possible on the drive at Athelhampton, it’s the speed required to propel this particular wedding transport back to its garage in 1985.

An amazing way to arrive for the ultimate BTTF fan.

I think this one beats the fire engine!

An Athelhampton Wedding isn’t just for the summer, Athelhampton is the ideal venue in the winter. The weather may be cold, but the stunning rooms of the house, with candle light, log fire (and even a huge Christmas Tree) makes for a magical time.

The weather is so awful tonight that I thought I would write a note about the kitchen garden, to go with a great photo from a wedding a couple of weeks ago. The kitchen garden restoration project started in 2014, the pond and paths were restored last year, but this yea...

It's wedding tasting Wednesday again, looking after the second of two couples this evening, it's a great chance to refine the menu to make sure it meets their requirements, a nice choice of home-made desserts tonight, and there's going to be some left for us as well!

Who could imagine that late July could deliver so much rain in Dorset. We had planned an outdoor ceremony for today, but instead we used the candle lit Great Hall for the wedding service.

Athelhampton is great in all weather and instead of photographs, drinks and canapé...
