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...

It's a fabulous day at Athelhampton, we are busy getting ready for today's wedding.

Today at Athelhampton, we are playing Top Trumps, you remember the card game featuring fast and exotic cars? We are playing with real Wedding transport, and we think this beats then all! A 1963 fire engine, in stunning immaculate condition. Just the right size to slip...

Our kitchen is a busy place! Gemma and her team delivered a fabulous multi course menu, 3 starters - beetroot risotto, asparagus bruschetta and a duet of duck, followed by stuffed fillet of Dorset beef, breast of chicken and spiced vegan parcels with pal choi.. lots of...

Saturday's wedding cake was stunning to look at and even better tasting.. 

The edible flowers show the cake makers skill, each flower made by hand, and as they climb the cake they fade from luscious dark pink to white.
