We booked out wedding reception here several months before the major building works started. Nothing was mentioned about it, so you can imagine our shock when we drove past the Birchwood and saw the beautiful area with building walls up, massive mounds of sand & dirt & JCB's! Although the back of the building by the lake was still attractive, the front to which guests would see when driving down, had completely lost it's curb appeal and had I known this I would have booked somewhere else. When I rang them about it, they weren't really interested, just made poor excuses, which was really disappointing! However, on the day, the staff at the bar & waiting on us were very efficient and helpful and that part went smoothly. Also, the food was excellent. Unfortunately, the experience was ruined, as the balcony to the room didn't have a sign up warning guests about the huge step down onto it and one of my guests had a very nasty fall and had to go home! I wouldn't recommend this venue, as they are more concerned about making money than they are about keeping their guests happy!
Amazing wedding venue!

We got married here in October 2014, couldn't fault anything! Rebecca, the wedding planner, was fantastic. So helpful, great ideas and great visions. I asked her to decorate the room how she thought would look nice and it was utterly perfect! All the staff on the day couldn't be more helpful. The food was AMAZING, every single guest couldn't believe how nice it all was. All in all, I couldn't fault them, had the best day :)

We had an amazing wedding reception at Birchwood Park. The staff were so helpful in the planning & on the day itself. Everything went perfectly. The food was lovely, room decorated beautifully & everyone commented on what a lovely venue! Thank you for making it a day to remember!
Our SNOWY wedding at Birchwood Park
By Dave and Kat Laurie, on 08 Feb 2011
Myself, Dave and all our family and friends were so impressed with ALL the staff at Birchwood. The commitment shown by Kathryn and all teh other staff was amazing and we are so grateful for everybody that made the effort to get to work despite the snow.
The feedback I have had from our guests has been outstanding. the organisation was perfect; many thanks to Kathryn and Kay, guests were greeted with canapes and drinks as soon as they arrived. the food was absolutely delicious and our guests said it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding! All waiters/waitresses and bar staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. the music was just what we wanted and had everybody up dancing.
Dave and I are eternally grateful that what could have turned out to be a nightmare was in fact a dream and we wuold highly recommend Birchwood to anyone.
Birchwood Park was amazing!!
By Lindsay and David Southgate, on 08 Feb 2011
I cannot find enough words to express how wonderful our day was. it went better than i had ever imagined. the service Kathryn provided in the lead up to the big day was extremely good. we felt like we could ask Kathryn any questions or raise any concerns that we may have.
The food on the day was out of this world. A huge number of our guests have commented that it was the best food that they have ever had at a wedding and both David and I agree.
We would also like to say a big thank you to Kay and to the waitresses and bar staff for ensuring that the day went very smoothly.
Chris the resident DJ was superb. He played all of the requests we asked for before the day, he got everyone on the dancefloor (although i think the wine helped too...) and played our guests choices. we and many of our guests were very dissapointed when the night was over.
we just want to say a big thank you for helping to make our day very special.

Thank you so much to Kathryn and all the staff for making our day so wonderful. I cant stress enough how fantastic the organisation and the food were on the day. I have had so many comments from people who attended on how brilliant the food was and how accomodating and organised the staff were.
Please pass on my thanks to the catering manager she did a wonderful job and made our day so enjoyable as i didnt need to think or deal with anything for the whole evening.
