Minterne House is a magnificent privately owned country house and estate close to the idyllic village of Cerne Abbas, providing a magical setting for your wedding ceremony. Ancestral home of the Digby and, prior to that, the Churchill family for the past 350 years, Minterne has a number of rooms licensed for ceremonies, depending on the size of your wedding party. From the grand Trafalgar Hall to the intimate Lady Digby's Garden Room, you can be assured of a special day. The series of lakes, bridges and cascades in the renowned rhododendron gardens are set in over 1600 acres of parkland, offering stunning settings for romantic photographs.
