Weddings at Kingston Country Courtyard

At Kingston Country Courtyard we specialise in weddings designed to meet your own specific needs, formal or informal.

Our 16th century Purbeck stone barn, which can seat up to 130 guests, is licenced for civil ceremonies and has a fully stocked bar attached.

The catering team has over 25 years experience and are able to meet almost any requests. Choose your own format and menu - wherever possible we try to use locally sourced products and ingredients which are prepared by us and cooked fresh on the day. We will meet with you to discuss your needs and provide any advice and guidance required.

This is an opportunity for you to get away from ''package A or B'' offered by some hotels and for you to design your own day. However, with over thirty years experience we have a wealth of amazing wedding suppliers we can recommend. Below are a few links to some great examples !

Please contact us direct to arrange a viewing of the complex and to discuss your plans.

This is your wedding, and it is our job to try to ensure that it is the wedding that you want!

For all other Wedding or Event enquiries at Kingston Country Courtyard, email or telephone 01929 481066.

James White Photography

Welcome to James White Photography, where I specialise in creative, documentary wedding photography throughout Hampshire, the UK, and Europe. My style is natural, timeless reportage wedding photography. I look for the real moments. Genuine smiles and tears, I like to tell an honest story of your wedding being unobtrusive throughout the day. From the preparations at the start of the day until the dance floor is in full swing.

For me wedding photography is about moments, reactions, emotion and atmosphere. Each wedding is unique, and that’s what I want to capture, without interrupting your celebrations asking you to pose. It’s all just a very nice way of saying that I am very observant, creative and not bossy in any way. I want to create beautiful images which are a true reflection of the day.

“Nathan is a rare find. A true professional and a genuinely funny man to boot. He comes highly recommended by everyone who experienced the day. His expert eye and great direction ensured we made the most of every photo opportunity whilst still remaining calm and totally natural. When our memories of the day begin to fade it will be so great to have these amazing pictures to look back on. Thank you soo much for being an integral part of our special day.” - Alfred & Charmaine

The ability to see the emotional moment in the correct place is key to good wedding photography. Your wedding will be one of the most emotional days of both your lives, pick a photographer with the ability to read and translate those feelings into fabulous photographs to cherish forever.

Contact Nathan at Libra Photographic for a no obligation meeting to chat about your big day.

Linus Moran Photography

Linus Moran Photography approaches weddings with a unique and fresh approach. We know how quickly the day, along with the experience passes. One big day with a huge lead up, you’re caught in a whirlwind of excitement. On the day many things may come & go quickly, some seen, but many unseen. Our role is to capture all the important moments, between you, family and guests. People being the heart of the day and the central part to our photography.

We keep you in the moment, partaking as much as possible within this precious experience. We capture your story between our photography, videography and aerial drone footage. This is then worked around selective audio recordings taken throughout your day. The wedding ceremony and wedding breakfast speeches being golden moments when stories are shared.

Do take a look at our Wedding Films capturing great mixes of both tenderness & humour. We are sure you will love them!

Western Marquees

Western Marquees has enjoyed a long standing relationship with Kingston Country Courtyard and works closely with the bridal couple and venue organisors to maximise the facilities offered by this stunning location.

The addition of a beautiful marquee linked to the main barn allows for a separate space to be used in a variety of ways – most popular a dining area. The dressed marquee will give you the opportunity to display your personality by incorporating your colour theme with decorations, table dressing, flowers etc.

Include a river of lights as a canopy in the barn ceiling complemented by coloured uplighting directed up the stone barn walls and you and your guests will enjoy a real WOW factor.

A popular addition is festoon and floodlighting in the garden where guests can mingle whilst enjoying the ambience of the unique setting overlooking Corfe Castle and the Purbecks.
