Established in 1880 as a Victorian Pleasure Garden, The Larmer Tree is now home to a muster of peacocks and a pair of Macaws. The garden is the perfect setting for a relaxed and informal, quintessential English Country Wedding. There is a choice of quirky licensed buildings for your Civil Ceremony and depending on guest numbers, from just 2 to 150, we have total flexibility to host your celebration all year round, either indoors or out. The venue is yours exclusively. Celebrate in the company of your family and friends with pimms, deck chairs and garden games in high summer; or with mulled cider, hot canapés and roast venison in deepest winter. Whatever the weather or season dine in the stunning Pavilion. Menus can be discussed during a private tasting, with our in-house caterers. Food is designed to suit your taste and budget. From plated formal dining, to sharing platters or barbecues, you can tailor the style of food to the theme of your day. Party in style until late in the colonial Jubilee Hall and when the time arrives to say goodbye, retire to the lavish comfort of King John's House. This historic Grade II* listed house is a 5 min drive away and sleeps up to 17 guests. If you like the idea of a more intimate celebration, how about a Secret Garden Wedding. Held midweek Monday to Thursday, for a maximum of 30 guests. Ceremony in your choice of building & an afternoon on the lawn with al fresco dining.

Larmer Tree
Larmer Tree is absolutely stunning and we can not wait to get married there. Having to postpone our wedding, Katy and the team at Larmer tree have been absolute stars in helping us find a new date and have been super accommodating. They have taken away all the unneeded stress and have been extremely patient and understanding.

Not only is it the most beautiful wedding venue on the south coast, but the wedding coordinators are all amazing! Since before the pandemic began they have been helpful and understanding, and that all increased ten fold when coronavirus hit. The whole team are incredible, which fits with such an amazing venue.
