Magnificent Forde Abbey, situated in the rolling West Dorset hills, offers either the Tudor Great Hall or the medieval Monks' Refectory for civil ceremonies. Your reception can be held in the vaulted 12th Century Undercroft, or if you prefer an afternoon champagne reception, this can be held in the 16th Century Great Hall. There are also 30 acres of beautiful gardens to explore and have your photographs. Forde Abbey is an exceptionally romantic setting, steeped in history, and the perfect place to celebrate your wedding or civil partnership.
