About Us

Run by the award winning Melanie Egan and her team at Bellissimo Weddings, Wilkswood is the ideal setting for your wedding with views over the stunning Purbecks. With over 10 years experience, your wedding planning journey will be completely stress free as the team will be on hand to answer any questions you may have surrounding the venue and provide full event management on your big day.

The wedding marquee holds the main show but there are various other options to add to the fabulous setting. You can have the choice of additional marquees which are a great option for a ‘lounge’ area for your guests to rest their dancing feet and take a breather! Wilkswood also have luxury bell tents for your guests to rest their heads for the night after enjoying the fabulous celebrations of your wedding day.

One huge plus point here at Wilkswood is that you are able to bring your own drinks at no additional charge. With no corkage costs, it is the ideal opportunity for you to allocate more of your budget to the smaller details such as decorations. Your caterers would also be able to supply your glassware for your drinks so there is no need to add that to your list!

Planning a wedding should be an exciting experience but can sometimes feel like a full-time job! Your ‘to do’ list will feel endless but we will be on hand to tick off all the necessities and of course, all the other details that mean your dream day is complete. We are available to help with menu ideas, decoration inspiration, logistics advice and much more. Please also refer to the recommended suppliers section of the website which gives you a list of everyone that can contribute something to your big day.

A big factor of your wedding day is knowing that someone is taking care of everything so you can enjoy every second of the day. Here at Wilkswood, you can be assured that all the little details are being looked after no matter what situations we are faced with.
