Kingston Maurward House :-
Set in idyllic surroundings, Kingston Maurward House and Gardens are Dorset's best kept secret.

A tranquil, peaceful and intimate spot, beautifully situated in undulating Dorset countryside, with a picturesque lake, broad sweeping lawns and formal gardens.

This 18th century Mansion House was built for George Pitt, a cousin of Prime Minister Pitt the younger. The Mansion is featured in Thomas Hardy's first published novel "Desperate Remedies" as "Knapwater House" . Nearby lies Stinsford Parish Church, which had a strong association with the Hardy family.

Approached through parkland, the House and its beautiful state-rooms make the perfect venue for marriage ceremonies and receptions, parties, balls, dinner dances, conferences, exhibitions, team-building days, luncheons and many other occasions.


Wedding Trivia:
WHITE WEDDING DRESS AS TRADITION
The tradition for the bride to wear white began in the 16th century and is still commonly followed today. This is a symbol of the bride's purity and her worthiness of her groom. The tradition became solidified during the time of Queen Victoria who rebelled against the royal tradition for Royal brides to wear silver. Instead, the queen preferred the symbolism, which is expressed by wearing white. The brides of the time quickly emulated the queen, and the tradition has continued in full force to this day.
