Weddings at Upton Country Park

Upton House and Walled Garden offer a beautiful setting for your Poole based wedding celebrations.

Award-winning parkland and gardens provide a stunning backdrop to those special photographs.

Available for civil wedding ceremonies and receptions throughout the year.



Civil wedding ceremonies are held in the magnificent Georgian splendour of Upton House, which is made available for your exclusive use. What better way to impress your guests?

Our largest state room, the Drawing Room, can hold a maximum of 70 guests whilst our Study is the perfect option for more intimate ceremonies of up to 40 guests.

Whichever you choose, members of the Wedding Team will be on hand to ensure that everything goes smoothly for the most important day of your life, leaving you to simply enjoy it!

After your ceremony, you are invited to make use of the grand Entrance Hall and stunning parkland and gardens for your wedding photographs. For those special ‘couple’ shots, you are free to wander down to the beautiful Walled Garden or capture Poole Harbour as a backdrop from the Park at the shoreline.
