JAM Duo love finding new venues to explore and we particularly loved Parley Manor which is just on the edge of Bournemouth. In fact it’s right next to the airport but that doesn’t detract in any way from just how fabulous it is.

The Wedding

Kaylum and Rebecca
Parley Manor, Dorset
18 July 2022

Today the ceremony and drinks reception was held in the garden with the ceremony under cover in one corner. This is where we set up to begin and helpfully, with the aid of our little Bose speaker, we were able to remain in the same location throughout the drinks reception.

JAM Duo Setting up

Today was also the first day out for our new set of wooden letters. Simply JAM – watch out for these featuring in our forthcoming weddings and events.


Our brief today was to provide music for the Ceremony, Drinks Reception and Wedding Breakfast. The surroundings were absolutely stunning and we would highly recommend Parley Manor as a wedding venue if you are looking to get married near Bournemouth or the New Forest.

The wedding breakfast was held in a marquee also in the grounds of the house and so it took just a few short minutes to relocate our instruments so we could once again start playing whilst guests enjoyed a BBQ. With such fabulous weather it was the perfect choice for the wedding breakfast.

A little taste of Italy

The Italian walled garden is undoubtedly our best kept secret, and yet still an area of absolute tranquillity. The garden is a meticulously maintained haven, which will transport you to another era. 

Adorned with outdoor seating and garden furniture, the walled garden is the ideal place to relax with a glass of something sparkling on a warm summer’s evening.

A charming Georgian Manor house, preserved in time

Built in the early 1700s and lovingly cared for, Parley Manor will make you feel like you’ve stepped back to times gone by.

This grand yet elegant, family run, Georgian Manor house is situated on what was once a large country estate, stretching from Hurn Forest to the River Stour. Today, the grounds are made up of four acres of parkland and gardens, offering you an exclusive secluded wedding venue, situated on the Dorset/Hampshire border. As you sip champagne in the traditional English gardens, you’ll be reminded of the countless celebrations that have come before yours, and your special day will become a part of the estate’s grand history.

The old and the new work in perfect harmony at Parley Manor. The manor itself provides a splendid backdrop for your photographs, while the canopy for your evening reception is well equipped to host a 21st-century celebration.

In close proximity to Christchurch, Poole, and Bournemouth, Parley Manor is well connected to the outside world, making it convenient for wedding guests. In addition, Parley Manor’s expansive grounds and clear blue skies will make you feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
