Petite Weddings at Montagu Arms

27th Oct 2020

Filled with English charm, the 17th century country house hotel, The Montagu Arms in Beaulieu lends itself beautifully to an intimate wedding amongst your dearest friends and family; a day that will be truly personal to you.

Weddings might have to be small right now with 15 guests, but they certainly can still be beautiful.

It’s an opportunity to go over and above to make your guests feel cherished - great food and wine, opulent decorations and little touches that celebrate the personalities of those sharing this special day with you.

What is the secret to holding a beautiful and memorable intimate wedding? The Montagu Arms knows…

A sense of place, a sense of history

Named by Cistercian Monks in 1204, Beaulieu, meaning “beautiful place” {beau-lieu}, is home to a country house that blends tradition and heritage within a tranquil corner of England, renowned for its warm atmosphere and the most personal service. As a cherished family-owned hotel with over 200 years of history, you’ll discover a hotel where little touches make a big difference. As a grade 2 listed building, both the exterior and interior of the Montagu Arms Hotel offer quintessential English charm and timeless sophistication. With opulent surroundings and historic features at every turn, your guests will arrive to oak panelling, polished, herringbone parquet the tick of a longcase clock and a crackling fire in winter. Whatever the time of year, whatever the weather, these timeless features mean that even in the depths of winter your wedding will be as beautiful as in the warmth of the summer.

“It was even better than we could have hoped for given the circumstances so we really would like to thank yourself, and your team for that!” – Keri & Sam (Married 19th August 2020)



The elegant Oakwood boasts original panelling and a cosy crackling fire for those colder days – the ideal option for the more intimate civil ceremony and wedding breakfast celebration. The beautiful leaded windows give the room an abundance of natural light, perfect for your wedding photographs. With a smaller space and fewer tables, the room can be dressed with bespoke name cards, extravagant floral displays hanging over the brick fireplace and candle lanterns that set the mood as the night draws in.


Small but beautiful…

Share your unforgettable day with up to 15 guests; we will prepare your red carpet, a beautifully intimate ceremony in your own private room and an exquisite wedding breakfast tailored for you and your guests paired with beautiful wine and cocktails, leaving you to savour every moment, every loving look and the first day of your wonderful journey as a married couple.
