great venue for a gay wedding, poor brochure
By Lisa and Lucy, on 25 Jul 2014
Myself and my partner have recently booked our wedding at Sherwood Forest. as a gay couple we eagerly anticipated the change in the law to allow us to get married. We love Sherwood Forest and visit regularly as we live close by. We were reluctant to contact Sherwood at first as we had seen the brochure and it is very heterosexual orientated. We did actually ring up prior to meeting the wedding planner as we have had some really difficult experiences with other venues who are not so keen to host a same sex ceremony. I have to say that as soon as we had spoken to Julie Fox we were at ease, she was absolutely lovely and really open to all our ideas and keen to make it a special day for us and she also acknowledged the new change in law and clearly had no issues with this which was lovely for us. I cannot speak highly enough of the service we were offered when we went to make our initial booking, but again when we viewed the brochure with Julie it was all exclusively heterosexual which tends to make you feel like a second class customer, although this wasn't anything that Julie did!

Hello Julie and the team!
We will be sending thank you cards soon but in the meantime we wanted to say thank you for such a fantastic wedding day on 20th June 2014.
Everything went without a hitch and it was truly the best day of our lives :-)
Julie - I know you will be sad to miss the occasion and I hope you get well soon. Your team (especially Hazel) did an absolutely brilliant job and we can't thank them all enough.

My son Matthew married Gayle here on Sat 20th july. Julie and her staff made every detail perfect. It is a wonderful natural venue surrounded by nature. The food was lovely and plenty of it!
I had to phone Julie a couple of times to ask for hotel and hairdresser recommendation. Also to ask about disabled facilities. (It is fully accessable) Thanks again for a wonderful wedding to remember x
Very Special, much appreciated

Julie & team,
Thank you so much for your support and attention to detail both in helping to plan our wedding and on the actual day.
Our wedding day turned out to be a very special occasion and the setting of Sherwood Forest added that extra touch.

Thank you very much for all your help and assistance, both during the preperation for our wedding and on our wedding day. Your help was professional and invaluable. You and all your staff were amazing and everyone helped to make our Special Day, Very Special indeed.
Without exception Tamara and I and all our guests were very impressed and delighted with the venue both at the Oak Room and in the Restaurant, with the preperation involved, the excellent quality of the food and the service we received from everyone there.
