Weddings again in 2020

Having taken a break from holding weddings here in 2019 we are now taking bookings for weddings in 2020.  Coastal Tents have provided us with an on site marquee which is one of the best that we have seen.  With the marquee comes all the furniture, tables, chairs, dance floor etc that you will need for a first class event.  Keeping the marquee up does away with all the traffic and repetitive effort involved in starting and taking away a new marquee every week – makes good sense!

Everything is included for 120 guests – the church seats 120 but the marquee is large enough for more.

Garden is still as lovely as ever and all that changes is that the trees get bigger – some of them in the conifer garden have got a bit too big and may have to go.

As always anyone contemplating a Studland Church wedding would do well to contact the vicar, Tony Higgins, early in the piece as it is such a historic and pretty church that it is becoming increasingly booked up for weddings.

Julia’s House Jurassic Trek Finish 2018

Julia’s House is a well regarded local childrens’ hospice charity that holds an annual Jurassic Trek fund-raising walk along the wonderful Jurassic and Purbeck coastline.  They asked us if we would consider being their finish line and we were of course happy to oblige and support this local charity.  The event took place on June 10th 2018 and all the walkers – arriving at various times throughout the day – depending on the killer competitive spirit and level of training(?).  Some of them were just glad to make it.

When they got in they were rewarded with refreshments and burgers and the whole lawn became one giant picnic.  The event was a great success and raised over £93,000 for the charity.

Howard’s End – Aunt Juley’s House

The BBC Howard’s End (shown in April 2018) features Harry Warren as Aunt Juley’s seaside house in Swanage in Episode 3 of 4.  The drawing room was set dressed to be totally Edwardian and there is some action in the garden.  It is very recognisable and they were here for a week preparing, setting up and filming.  Not much sitting around for the actors, they were working doing takes and retakes all the time
