Minstead Lodge is nestled in the heart of the New Forest National Park and offers an exclusive and elegant retreat for a unique country house wedding.
The magnificent Lodge is steeped in history, run to support its charity work and highly exclusive – hosting just a few select weddings each year.
Our weddings are bespoke and personalised - reflecting your personality and making your wedding unforgettable.
Our oak panelled Long Hall is perfect for your ceremony, wedding breakfast or evening party. It opens out onto glorious woodland views from the South Terrace for your drinks reception, from which you can wander our beautiful, peaceful grounds. Two windowed reception rooms offer options for smaller ceremonies, drinks receptions, buffets, chill out rooms or a bar. Our catering partners offer a range of options to tailor your wedding breakfast to your requirements.
You are guaranteed exclusive use of the Lodge’s reception rooms as the only wedding in your chosen week. You will have use of three beautiful rooms (seated capacity 75), the terrace and our marquee site. There is also use of the grand staircase and grounds for bride and groom photos. Of course, we take care of all the practical aspects. Tables, chairs, table linen and napkins are all included. You will also have access on the day before to set up and decorate alongside our wedding PA to ensure everything runs seamlessly.
