Full Description
Royle Forest is a magical venue that is guarenteed to get your guests excited for your day when they open your invitation. With fresh eyes on this industry we designed this venue as a family to offer a venue like no other. Just a couple of features that make us stand out F L E X I B I L I T Y : at this venue you are given the flexibility to customise this venue throughout to really get your stamp on your day so that your wedding is individual and not like any other, allowing you to get your stamp on your day W E A T H E R P R O O F : even though we are an outdoor venue we gaurentee all outdoor areas by covering all your important areas such as your ceremony area and firepits, as well as hard paths throughout, the weather does not matter at this venue C E L E B R A T I O N: at Royle Forest we offer the best celebration setup you can find, with an infinity dancefloor and the incredible Forest Bar, you will struggle to find a more exciting setup. AND to top it, our bar is one of the cheapest in the industry with prices even cheaper than most pubs, this allows a friendly environment that your guests will love coming to the bar and as a result a packed dancefloor at the end of the night! F U N: our setup is designed for maximum fun on your wedding day, with our wedding planning and coordinating service sorting everything out our couples are able to turn up and relax and just enjoy their day knowing everything is taken care of! We even do the whole cleanup for you. On top of all these awesome features we also wanted to make sure our couples felt extra special at this venue like they truly matter, which is why have added features such as a 1971 race car as your wedding car for the day, we also pay for you to go on a beer tasting session with our beer partner where you actually get to choose a beer to go on the bar for your day, and even further we also make a sign and wedding memory box engraved with our couples names and dates that arrives full of forest goods.

Simply magical!
An absolutely beautiful, magical, woodland fairytale! Lots of cozy spots, a bonfire, stunning nature all around with amazing staff! The venue managed to make our wedding feel so secluded and exclusive, which made for a very special atmosphere! The Tipi is also waterproof which took away so much of our pre-wedding fears. Cannot recommend enough and I hope we can return back soon.

Press & Awards

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

E V E R Y . W E D D I N G - at Royle Forest our aim is to ensure that each and every wedding is special, this team goes above and beyond and our target is that the couple and every single guest on the day ends up leaving saying that is the best wedding they have ever been to. This venue is guarenteed to get your guests excited when you send your invitation cards out, a brand new concept to the industry you cannot find a more unique but awesome setup for your magical day

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

R E L A X - your day will be action packed with everyone wanting your attention throughout the day, to ensure you slow the day down and get those moments where you can really take it all in we recommend finding 5 minutes a couple times throughout the day to sit down and watch all your guests gathered their to celebrate your day have a great time

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

L A S T . D A N C E - as a special touch this is now something we offer to all our couples, as the days are action packed to help couples get another extra special moment once the guests have left we are happy to stock a firepit up and put a playlist of your choosing back on so you can have a last dance and some peace and quiet by the far to soak in your wedding day and take it all in

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Unique. Personal. Magical. Adventurous. Exciting.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

We have worked with a photographer since day one of building this magical venue, meaning there are many special places to take photos throughout the venue

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We have one booked in but we want to keep this private to allow them to have a relaxing time, this couple found us looking for unique venues that were up and coming within the UK but also something that is completely different. That is how they described us

What’s your favourite canapé?

Spiced plum chutney and Somerset blue cheese tart, not your average wedding canape however we feel one that fits our venue to the tea with being unique and adventurous but overall an amazing experience

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Sugar covered profiteroles with a melted chocolate is a winner any day, the perfect energy pickup to carry on with the celebrations

What is your venue's most unique feature?

This is a hard one, so we must name two. 1. The Forest Chapel in the middle of the forest where you get married, hand built by ourselves and the family, and 2. the celebration setup, you will struggle to find a cooler bar and dancefloor.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Where to start. Royle Forest is an absolutle labour of love for our family, and i must say this is what we are most proud of. The fact that this venue has been hand built down to every last detail by the family is a feat you do not hear of every day, having the confidence to push the wedding industry by offering something completely and totally unique was a risk but one that we are finding is paying off with the feedback we have received since opening in April 2022, there seems to be a desire for something different that gets guests excited again and offers a day that truly is magical.
