Hayhouse Farm Weddings

Woodland or Barn Ceremonies In Picturesque North Dorset


A TRULY stunning setting in Dorset for a beautiful woodland or barn wedding ceremony in relaxed rural surroundings with far-reaching views. Situated on a family farm on the Dorset/Somerset/Wiltshire border, two miles from Gillingham, the site offers the opportunity to create your unique and individual dream wedding.

This idyllic site, among 25-acres of centuries old organic pasture, is completely private and quiet with no visible buildings or overhead wires. 

We only hold a maximum of six weddings each year, which means your celebrations will be totally bespoke and exclusive to you. Our traditional rustic barn with exposed and original brickwork is licensed for civil ceremonies. Alternatively, ceremonies can take place in our picturesque woodland under a natural canopy of leaves and blue bells in the spring.

About Us

HAYHOUSE FARM is a family run farm with Mike alternating his day-job as a vet with his weekend job as a beef and sheep farmer in Langham near Gillingham, in one of the most picturesque areas of North Dorset. He is helped by his wife, Annabel and daughters Philippa, Daisy and son Toby. When we held a 21st Birthday party for Philippa, in the summer of 2014, so many of our guests commented on how lucky we were to have such a lovely spot for a party, it gave us the idea to open up the site for others to hold their own celebrations.

We held our first wedding celebrations in 2016 in our own traditional canvas marquee and the whole family thoroughly enjoyed trying to turn everyone’s ideas and dreams into reality.


Exclusive hire of marquee site from 9:30 am on Friday to give you ample time to decorate the barn, marquee and surrounding areas until Sunday 3 pm.
Our traditional marquee (60 ft by 40 ft) seats up to 160 people and includes flooring, round and rectangular wooden trestle tables and fire pits outside with surrounding hay bales.
A storage stable with vintage accessories, tea, coffee, fridge, freezer, 16 amp & 64 amp power connections, plus a 240v switchboard and two mains water pipes are available throughout the weekend.

£4750.00 inclusive
