Weddings In The Wood Full Description
It is a "blank canvas" ready for you to personalise in any way you wish - from adding simple decorations to making elaborate arrangements. With this in mind we can provide options to have early access, the day or evening before to set up and an option to stay overnight till 12 noon the day after your wedding to clear your decorations. Fabulously private and secluded, you will enjoy exclusive use of the venue and we will do everything we can to make sure your special day goes without a hitch and is memorable for all the right reasons! We have a license to hold wedding ceremonies and civil partnership services in our Carpenter's Barn or outdoors amongst the trees. The barn itself can accommodate around 100 guests for a sit down meal. Our semi-permanent marquee on the woodland deck extends the covered space, seating a further 125 guests. Additional marquees can be put up on the lawn if required. After the wedding feast, the tables and chairs can be cleared to create a dance floor in the barn, were we allow you to arrange your own band or DJ. We have a licensed bar, a large fire circle. There are lawns for entertainment and a meandering trail through the ancient woodland. The newly weds can spend the night in our Honeymoon Shepherd’s Hut and we also have 9 shepherd huts accommodating a further 36 guests and camping on our South lawn, for those guests wishing to stay into the early hours. (Requires the extended option).

Really magical venue!
We got married here in September and everyone loved it and was asking how we found it! We had good weather so we luckily got married IN the forest which was the simply amazing!!! Everything ran well and we had the best day from start to finish. The reason I have given 4 rather than 5 is because you have to do everything yourself which was a challenge. I would recommend getting an actual wedding planner person to help you if you can afford one. But a really special beautiful place if you have the time to organise it all.

Wonderfully magic woodland venue
Are you dreaming of getting married out in the forest among tall trees, with fairylights in a private setting? Look no more. Weddings in the Woods in the middle of the New Forest is the most romantic location for nature lovers. It's quirky, private and with room for a large wedding party. Dinner can be held inside in a pretty party tent, equipped with a wooden bar, heating and a 360 degree view of the magical woodland outside. We held our ceremony outside in the forest itself, and believe me, I will never forget the beauty of the tall trees all around as I said yes to my other half. The venue has shooting ranges, where you can hire fun activities like archery and axe throwing for your guests, and you can also hire the incredibly charming shepherd's huts spread among the trees to accommodate your guests for the night. But you know what? Despite the beautiful venue, the best thing about it is the staff. What a bunch of helpful, accommodating and insanely organised people! Especially Simon, who is in charge, will go the extra mile to ensure your wedding day will be the best day of your life. He and his staff made such a huge effort that me and my husband could thoroughly relax and enjoy ourselves. Even when the rain poured down in the evening, the inside spaces and the wonderful setting and staff made it the best bloody wedding I've experienced. I am stunned :) These guys deserve all the credit in the world. Please award them!
