Thank you so much for allowing us to host our wedding at Minterne House on 5 August 2017. As the location of our ‘blind date’ meeting three years before, it made the perfect venue and is a very special place, not only for us, but now our families and friends too.

We greatly appreciated your help throughout, in the planning stages, setting up during the days before, helping to make the whole day run seamlessly, and clearing up the next day, meaning we could enjoy the day knowing that the rest was in safe hands.

We have treasured memories of our wedding at Minterne, and thank you once more for your help in making this happen.

“We couldn’t have hoped for a better venue to celebrate our wedding than Minterne House; it was the perfect setting for our big day.

We both feel that what really made the day special, wasn’t just the spectacular surroundings, but the warm & friendly welcome Maureen and the Digby family extended to us and all our guests. Providing a professional, but relaxed service, the day flowed with ease, and meant that we were free to enjoy every moment.

I only wish that we could do it all again!

Mr & Mrs Constantine (Vicky & Simon)


Dear Henry,
This is to say a huge thank you for helping to make our Wedding Day at Minterne House such an immensely special occasion. You made us feel so welcome in your beautiful house & both you and Maureen were so helpful & approachable, we really could not have hoped for more in any way. The house provided such a spectacular backdrop, we hardly needed to do anything in terms of decoration which made things so much easier, & letting us use the Acers in our table decorations was very generous of you. We fell in love with Minterne House when we first saw it, & after meeting your charming self, we knew it was the place for us to get married!

Wedding Reception at Minterne 

“Henry, this letter is to thank you for making our wedding day possible. Had it not been for you, we would not have had such a perfect venue for the reception. Everybody who came said that it was one of the best weddings they had been to. Thank you for your kindness, guidance, help & advice in making not only our day possible, but making it so special for Vivvy, as after all, it was her day.”


“Thank you Henry, so much, for all that you did to ensure that we had such a very perfect day. We loved every minute of our wedding, Sherborne Abbey was glorious. Minterne was also beautiful & many of our guests said they talked to you & remarked on how welcoming you were. The atmosphere of Minterne instantly put everybody in a relaxed & happy mood. I can safely say that it was the best day of my life & thank you so much for your part in that.”


“Also thank you to Maureen for all her help in organising & making our wedding so very special. With her calm efficiency & patience, she is totally unflappable! which is a wonderful trait for anxious brides.”

Wedding Reception at Minterne

Henry, you have been extraordinarily kind, supportive & fun to be around – it’s hard to believe you are also the proprietor of the wedding venue. My husband has just referred to you (Henry) as a “Legend!” We are so overwhelmed by how much you did to make the day perfect – managing the marquee, clearing up till 1am, as well as being an asset to the drinks reception. The day would not have been the same without you & your beautiful house.

In addition, a special mention for Maureen; everyone who met her described her as helpful, friendly, kind, enthusiastic (about the wedding & the house appropriately!!) & amazingly organised, what a team her & mum made. She was always a friendly face to greet us, & put us at ease & remained so calm which was great for all of us. She is a huge credit to Minterne & we are grateful to her too.

We will never forget yesterday, the house & your role in that.

This delightful house and grounds offered the ideal setting for our special day. The booking process was simple and effective and the service continued to be exemplary. The Trafalgar room looked great on the day and was just how we imagined it would look from visiting and the photos. My bride really enjoyed staying the night before and entering the service down the grand staircase. Special thanks to Henry who made us feel very welcome, relaxed and nothing seemed to be too much hassle. The weather was great for our service and the grounds and house provided a great backdrop for photos. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of options for all tastes. Thanks to all involved at Minterne.
