Royle Forest Weddings Full Description
Royle Forest is a magical venue that is guaranteed 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 our venue, you are given the flexibility to put your own stamp on your day so that your wedding is individual, unique and not like any other! W E A T H E R P R O O F : Even though we are an outdoor venue, we guarantee all outdoor areas are covered. This includes our ceremony area, bandstand and firepits. We even have a covered area in our Street Food Courtyard. The hard paths and decking throughout our venue, ensures the weather does not matter on your special day. C E L E B R A T I O N: At Royle Forest we offer the best celebration setup you can find! With our infinity dancefloor and incredible Forest Bar, you will struggle to find a more exciting place to party. We offer pub-friendly prices and a relaxed environment to ensure that your guests will love coming to the bar and will result in 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 (as part of our package), you are able to turn up, relax and just enjoy your day, knowing everything is fully taken care of! We even do the whole clean up for you, so you don't have to think about it! On top of this, we want to make sure all our couples feel extra special during the planning phase of the wedding. This is why we pay for them to go on a beer tasting session to choose a beer to go on the bar for the day and a wine tasting evening, at our venue, is also part of the planning journey. We also make a bespoke, personalised sign and wedding memory box, full of forest goods, to take away with you.

The dedication of the team blew us away!
1st October 2022 - ADAM & LILY OUTSTANDING! From the moment Adam and I decided to get married at Royle Forest, Fraser and Emma and the rest of the Royle Forest family went above and beyond to make sure it was the wedding of our dreams! They completely took customer service to the next level and went above and beyond in so many ways so that our wedding felt completely personal and unique to us! The dedication of the team blew us away from the start! The space that they’ve created is simply one of a kind. (Please go visit) It’s like stepping into your own personal mystical forest! It really has the WOW factor! All of our guests commented on how magical it felt! Fraser and the teams vision, creativity, work ethic and drive is truly inspirational which is why we chose the venue and the team as we knew we’d be in safe hands! They took all the stress away from planning and even when things threatened to get stressful they swooped in and problem solved (eg. fast communication over what’s app and email, contacting the council personally when we had issues with our registrar, setting up last minute decorations for us on the day that we ran out of time for the night before, contacting all of our suppliers a week before to make sure they were ready and had everything they needed to on the day… I could go on!) We truly received the Royle Treatment. The accommodation for starters! The Bears Lair and the Farm house are just gorgeous (the hand painted murals are breathtaking!) and made for an incredible unique stay the night before and after the wedding (the 8 seater mother of all hotubs, the jacuzzi bath, make up stations, Nespresso coffee machines, enormous luxurious beds, fire pits….I could go on) On the day we arrived we noticed that our names were hand carved into the sign welcoming people to the venue 🤯, the morning and the morning after the wedding Fraser came along to personally give us breakfast, he personally drove the bridal party to the venue, he personally was on hand during the reception to make sure the bride and groom had drinks and canapés (as he knew that the excitement of the day and photos etc could mean we’d miss out) he also took some gorgeous photos of us on the day from the DJ booth and he said “that was the best view” Lastly on the day we left Fraser presented us with a hand made keepsake box with our names and anniversary date on. If that wasn’t enough Inside were a pair of branded champagne glasses and other gorgeous Luxury gifts for us newly weds to enjoy. If you’re looking for a unique woodland venue where the entire team are passionate about what they do and are dedicated to you and your special day look no further! The Royle Forest Family will deliver!!! Thank you for making our wedding day so perfect. Adam, Lily X

If we were to get married again, it’d be here!
We recently attended a beautiful wedding at this venue, the location is stunning! If we were to get married again, it’d be here. The atmosphere was so good and the craftsmanship in the tipis especially the forest bar is unreal!! They made all the chairs, tables, walkways, seating areas etc - mind blown but it shows the huge effort Fraser and Emma have put in to make this venue the very best!

Perfect does not do it justice!
We got married here in September 2022. My husband and I actually booked this venue when it was simply a field and Fraser’s vision. The best decision we ever made. Fraser, Emma and the entire family made our wedding the most incredible, memorable, personalised time of our lives. Everything they did for us will never be forgotten. By far the most beautiful venue in the UK!

Thank you so much for the best wedding!
We have just had our wedding at Royle Forest weddings and we are absolutely blown away with how incredible Fraser, Emma and his team have been with us throughout the whole process since we booked it in March. The venue is absolutely incredible. We looked at a lot of venues and this was by far the best one we have ever seen or been to..even our guests have agreed with us. We in fact originally had a venue booked but we’re so blown away with this one we cancelled our other venue!! We just want to thank Fraser and his team for their outstanding work. No job was too little or too big and they have been the most supportive people to us. Their family and the lads that work with him were always on hand to make sure that everything went perfectly even the day before the wedding. We couldn’t of asked for a better venue or team for our wedding.. thanks to them, they made it the best day of our lives. Fraser, you are so talented and you just have a gift with people. No matter what we asked for your response was.. it’s all part of the service. You have been such a kind gentleman not just to us as Groom and bride but also to all our guests as they have given us such amazing feedback on the venue and to all of you and your staff!! Thank you so much for the best wedding we could have wished for you are truly amazing :)

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.

We have just been to a truly amazing wedding!
We have just been to a truly amazing wedding for Mr & Mrs Ferguson at the Royle Forest venue. It was the most amazing and magical wedding, setting and venue. We stayed in some very boutique bell tents which just added to the whole experience. My girl friend and I attend many festivals over the years and this venue manages to capture all of the magic and atmosphere we love so much about these kind of events. If you love being in nature with friends this truly intimate setting is not one to be missed! The family who ran the venue were also absolutely on the ball and fabulous! Thank you and we hope to be back again and again!!
