Hampshire, England

Located just a few miles from classic romance author Jane Austen’s home and cited as the first meeting place of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon, Dogmersfield Estate has long been associated with famous love stories.

Now, as we enter a new decade, travellers and locals alike have the chance to get married in the heart of the Hampshire countryside once again, with the opening of the newly renovated event space at Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire.

The wedding journey begins as guests enter via the Estate’s stunning glass link, flooded in natural daylight, before sweeping down marble stairs where they’ll find classically designed event rooms.

Boasting five separate private event spaces,  Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire can now hold intimate occasions for ten or fewer attendees and celebrations of up to 200 guests. The property is also proud to hold a full license for each room, allowing it to  host civil ceremonies.

For a truly magical celebration, the Hotel also offers its historic walled garden. Here, between two historic dovecotes and nestled within its heritage-listed walls,  lives this quintessential English garden. With fresh blooms and original features, it offers the perfect setting for a welcome dinner the night before weddings, a ceremony, reception drinks and canapés or a dining experience.

For the full country wedding experience, guests have the option to extend their stay, arriving a day or two early for traditional afternoon tea, followed by some country pursuits on offer at the property, including clay pigeon shooting, archery, horse riding, birdwatching and falconry.

The team at Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire is also on hand for brides and grooms wanting to showcase the character of the venue, whether this be through a personalised gift in guests’ rooms or cocktail at the wedding breakfast.

Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire Wedding and Events Manager Jessica Tober explains, “It’s a nice idea to learn a little about the history and add a personal touch, such as placing a welcome note into your guests’ bedrooms that explains the historic romance of our property, and a walking map to assist in exploring our 500 acres of estate. We love working with local purveyors of food and beverage to create an experience that your guests will be talking about for years to come.”
