Full Description
Every wedding at Wilde Lodge includes exclusive use of the venue for up to three nights, guaranteeing privacy and tranquility. The Main Lodge sleeps 10 and features thoughtfully designed rooms that combine the traditional feel of the house with contemporary touches. Next to the Main Lodge is The Long Barn which is a recently converted magical and rustic space to say 'I do' in front of 90 seated guests or simply to use to party the night away in. The barn can be transformed into a chill out area, cinema, dance floor or cocktail bar, the choice is completely yours! The newest addition to the site is the Wilde Safari Tent, a fabulous marquee nestled within the old barn walls, complete with its own bespoke bar and seats 120 guests or 150 standing. The Wilde Catering team have an array of delicious menu options for you to choose from as well as the option to create something especially for you. The passionate, innovative and creative team guarantee to offer a memorable culinary experience. The Wilde Bar team will also be on-hand at the stunning 7m wooden bar, serving up drinks tailored to your tastes. Wilde Lodge pride themselves on their 'hidden extras' all in place to make your day perfectly unique. From the Secret Dining Room in the Main Lodge, ideal for more intimate gatherings and pre-wedding family meals, to the riverside which is ideal for BBQs and wild swimming. The large gardens and grounds allow plenty of space to create beautiful bell tent villages so all your guests can have a luxurious glamping experience and your wedding can extend beyond the day and turn into a fun and fuss-free weekend celebration. We are hosting open days on the 12th, 13th and 15th of June 2021. So if you want to visit us in person, head to our website to book your time slot!

Incredible
Jemma and Maddy went above and beyond expectations to make our whole weekend extra special with so many thoughtful gestures. Really cannot thank them, and all of the staff at the Lodge, enough for all of their hard work. The scenery is spectacular, surrounded by nature, perfect for day-after walks from the doorstep, or just relaxing by the campfire watching dawn turn into dusk.

We had the best time at Wilde Lodge for our wedding weekend
We had the best time at Wilde Lodge for our wedding weekend. From planning to support on the day the team was amazing. We couldn’t have wished for a better place to get married at. The location is quiet and beautiful, the staff is kind and helpful, and the food was great too! The house itself is stunning, and the work done on the gardens and surrounding areas make this place truly magical. Definitely want to come back one day ✨ We loved it and all of our family and friends did too. Absolutely recommend Wilde Lodge to anyone looking to create beautiful memories

I'm already wondering when we can go back
Cannot recommend Wilde Lodge and the team enough. We were recently privileged enough to get married here...What a place. The location is stunning and lent itself so well to our fairly chilled out, fun wedding. With so many options and areas you can use for so many occasions I'm already wondering when we can go back. Whether it's just for a relaxed stay with family or friends or a formal event I just know Jemma and Maddy will make sure we have the best time. Whenever I think of the weekend we spent here I can't help but smile! If you decide to venture further afield there are some lovely places to visit too. You won't regret spending some time here.

Exactly what we wanted
After visiting Wilde Lodge to see the facilities and location, and discussing the options with Jemma, we decided to hold our wedding here last month. When we told Jemma the sort of day that we wanted, she gave us lots of suggestions and recommendations for things to ensure a truly wonderful day, including local suppliers for everything from a bar to portable loos and the yurt. We took over the whole house, and the weekend started with dinner for the family in the dining room on Friday evening, all prepared and served by Jemma and her staff. Some of our guests joined us for a walk from the Lodge on the hills on the other side of the river on Saturday morning, and when the time came for the ceremony to start, everything was in place. We hired a yurt which was erected on the lawn in front of the lodge, and held the ceremony in there and used it for dancing in the evening. The wedding breakfast served in the long barn was amazing - all local produce, with wonderful slow-cooked lamb as the main course. We had tried all of the courses and canapés at a tasting a few weeks before the event, and were really impressed by the quality of the catering. The barn and the yurt were decorated with local wild flowers and greenery by a local supplier recommended by Jemma, and the flowers were beautiful. Exactly what we wanted for a relaxed but stylish wedding in the countryside. Wilde Lodge is in a stunning location, and Jemma and her team fulfilled all of our expectations. Nothing was too much trouble, both on the day and in the months leading up to the wedding, and every one of our guests commented on just how perfect the weekend was. It helped that we had a glorious sunny day - but if the weather had changed, Jemma had contingency plans in place. Nothing was left to chance. We had a truly wonderful day, thanks in no small way to Jemma and Wilde Lodge itself. Thank you.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Though we love all our weddings, one of the best was with a lovely couple who started with an intimate dinner on the day they arrived, got up and went for a walk and a swim with their loved ones, truly making the most of the countryside. The morning after a big party and plenty of dancing, the guests woke up, had a game of croquet in their pyjamas and dinned on a big BBQ lunch! Seeing the bride, groom and their guests being able to relax and make the most of the venue is what we love most.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Unique, magical, relaxed, bespoke, intimate

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There are so many glorious spots, but we have seen some amazing photos taken outside the old barns around the lodge, with so many beautiful rustic features

What’s your favourite canapé?

It's hard to choose a favourite canape from our caterers CSONS, but would definitely have to say the five spice duck pancake with peanut, sesame, pickled cucumber and plum is up there. From amazing barbequed meats, to vegetarian and vegan dishes CSONS manage to bring together flavours to create an unforgettable dining experience

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Definitely smores toasted on the fire pits outside the barn

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The way my husband and I have built this business from the ground up, when we first took over the lodge it required a total renovation that we did ourselves, which we have constantly been building upon since then. To be able to watch couples and guests arrive and enjoy the site that we have given our time and hearts to is the best part about what we do!
