Dover Hall Estate




Dover Hall, a private estate located in the rolling hills of Manakin-Sabot, Virginia, is the perfect space for your elegant and luxurious wedding ceremony and reception. This English Tudor estate and its grounds are more than just a stunning setting—the hall was built to be the perfect place for your wedding and combines the grandeur of days past with modern conveniences in an unforgettable way. The estate’s 33,000 square feet command a majestic view of 55 acres of rolling hills and woodlands—landscapes that can be the background to your romantic ceremony. Imagine a ceremony surrounded by lush greenery and all of your friends and family followed closely by a reception held in one of the grand ballrooms that opens onto stunning blue stone terraces. You and your guests will be in awe of the magnificent architecture and décor and your celebration will transport you and your guests back to a time of pure elegance and poise. However, with modern options such as colorful spotlights in combination with antique iron chandeliers, the combination creates a unique and unforgettable atmosphere for your wedding. Finally, your wedding photos will be spectacular with backgrounds of the incredible architecture and décor.
