A glorious country house built 200 years ago of stone from the Purbeck Hills, situated within its own beautiful, formal gardens

An Intimate Hotel in a Quiet Rural Setting

When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

Quote Mark Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally

Wedding Showcases

We host several wedding showcases each year. The hotel is dressed as though a wedding were about to take place giving you the opportunity to get a sense of what it would be like to have your wedding at The Grange.  Several of our recommended suppliers will be on hand to offer advice and useful hints and tips.  The next showcase will take place during February.  Please keep an eye out on facebook or here for the date.

The Day

The Grange at Oborne will provide you with the perfect venue for your whole day: an intimate hotel in a quiet rural setting. Your guests arrive at The Grange eagerly anticipating the day ahead. The Bride walks up the aisle, the ceremony begins, you take your vows in front of your closest friends and family. As a newly married couple, you wander into the beautiful gardens for photographs, while your guests enjoy a glass of chilled champagne and a selection of delicious canapés. After the drinks reception, you move inside to the elegant Regent Room for a sumptuous three-course wedding breakfast. With the cake cut and the toasts finished, why not take coffee in the floodlit gardens whilst the room is transformed for your evening function. The band playing under the starlight ceiling, the flicker of candles, your first dance... a truly memorable experience.

The Service We Offer

The Grange is not part of a chain, it is a small privately owned and family run hotel. We will meet with you as often as you wish in the run-up to your wedding. We will be there along the way to offer our advice and expertise and together, we will create a day uniquely designed for you.  We will be in attendance on the day and, with the information you have given us, we will organise and manage your wedding, creating a seamless flow of events. You will be left to enjoy every moment with your family and friends. This service will continue until the last guest has put down his glass and gone to bed; every detail will be attended to.

Whether you would like a grand, lavish wedding or simply an intimate gathering of your very closest friends and family, we will do everything we can to exceed your expectations and we will ensure that you will receive our undivided attention.

Whilst you may wish to use your own suppliers, we can recommend photographers, bakers, florists, musicians, and others who, in the past, have provided excellent service for weddings at The Grange.

At the end of the day of a wedding at The Grange we have the real pleasure of knowing that we have played a part in what is perhaps the most important event in someone's life. We look forward to meeting you and helping you to create a day filled with special memories that will last a lifetime.

Please contact us if you would like to make an appointment to view the hotel.
