Perfect Wedding

Our wedding at Cheshire Woodland Weddings, was everything we ever dreamt of and more.

Do not let the weather put you off when considering this venue. We had all seasons but snow, and yet we would not change anything. The rain added to the magic of the ceremony, the sun came out during the activities, and biblical rain during our meal, it was great! The staff were overly accommodating with the weather, so again do not worry. The staff were able to accommodate change quickly, making sure that myself and my bridesmaids kept dry before the ceremony.

Ebony was amazing, cannot say much more. She was quick to respond to queries before the wedding, and on the day ensured everything ran like clockwork. Ebony allowed me to relax during the day, and handled everything to the finest detail.

We would also like to thank all the other staff, as they also worked tirelessly throughout the day.

We would recommend this venue to anyone who wishes to have an alternative outdoor wedding. We guarantee that you will have the best day, and so will your guests.

Thank you so so much for the memories you have helped us create.

Magical, relaxed, fun June 2021

We were one of many couples to have their weddings cancelled due to covid, and honestly so glad we did because this was the perfect magical venue that suited us both more than anything. We rearrange our wedding in under two months for 30 people without a crazy budget. We felt so relaxed and reassured thanks to the amazing team and thoughtfulness of the design but also could add our own touch and creativity to the venue. We are incredibly grateful to Darren who was amazing to work with! The games and activities were such a hit for all ages! The brother of the groom said ‘I never realised could be so fun!’. It was a pocket of happiness and joy we will never forget.

Our Wedding

We had our wedding at Cheshire Woodland Weddings end of April 2023. It was a brave move with good old British weather, but fortunately the weather was kind for us bar a 30 minute shower. It actually added to our day! The team provided everyone with ponchos while we watched the falconry display, the pictures of this are amusing to look back on and it didn’t spoil it one bit.
The team couldn’t do enough. Everything was perfect from start to finish, guests were still talking about our wedding weeks later. Thank you for making our wedding perfect! Jacqui and Dan

It was perfect.

We held our wedding here in October this year and it was honestly perfect. Ebony, Steve, and the whole team were so helpful from day one and really made the whole wedding planning process so easy. The venue itself has everything you could want from an outdoor venue, our guests all loved taking pictures in the woods, playing mini golf, and having a glass of prosecco and canapes looking over the lake. I would 100% recommend to anyone else looking to get married here. It was perfect.

What can I say from the first day we met Nicole and Steve! nothing was too much hassle and everything was made simple and easy. Great communication and they couldn't have physically done any more. Nicoles attention to detail is second to none and they couldn't have made our day any more perfect!

A perfectly decorated site with lots of activities which went down perfect with our guests!

We would highly recommend Cheshire woodland weddings to anyone who was trying to book the perfect venue for their wedding.

Massive thanks to Nicole and the whole team for our special day.

Father of the Bride

Richard Stoker reviewed Cheshire Woodland Weddings – 5 star

As the father of the bride you want your ‘little girl’ to have a magical day - and that is what she got. We have had the most amazing wedding day at Cheshire Woodland Weddings. The venue was magical, Nicole, Steve and the team were so attentive and supportive, the whole day was perfect!! We have had so many guests comment about “best wedding ever” - and it was!!! We first looked around the venue in the winter (no leaves or colour) with Santa’s Grotto still in residence (complete with fake snow). Steve reassured us that the transformation will make it completely different - he wasn’t wrong, it was wonderful! Our guests took full advantage of the activities, and the birds made the woodland theme complete. Steve and Nicole worked closely with our caterers (Jane Smith), photographers (Sensortivity Photography) and the live music (The Directions) to make everything run as smoothly as possible. Thank you to the whole team at Cheshire Woodland Wedding for taking (most of!) the stress out of a wonderful day and helping to make it perfect!!!

Nothing else like it

Laura Rush reviewed Cheshire Woodland Weddings – 5 star

Couldn't recommend the venue and staff enough.
We fell in love with the setting as soon as we visited and from the moment we met with Nicole and Steve they offered so much support and reassurance.

We were invited to discuss our ideas and visit the site when ever necessary. Nicole's experience meant that every fine detail was thought of and they all went above and beyond to make sure it was right for us.

Our wedding was 2 weeks ago today and all our guests are still talking about how magical and different the whole day was.
If you're looking for a venue who works for you, makes you feel important and gives your guests something to remember this is it!

Great value and I'm certain hard to beat!
Noting else like it! ?????????

Memories for Life

The staff and venue exceeded all of our expectations (which were high already!) and the expectations of our family and friends. We had the most perfect wedding from start to finish and Nicole, Steve and the rest of the gang worked tirelessly to make sure everything went to plan.

The communication since we booked the venue was great and it made planning really fun and exciting.
In the days before, they made us feel very relaxed and they transformed the venue in keeping with our style.

On the day all of our guests said what a fantastic, refreshing venue it was and how they had never been to a wedding like it. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day and a more perfect team to help us plan. We will have incredible memories for life.

The best wedding ever

When our first wedding venue fell through I reassured myself there was a reason and something better was on its way. Well who knew that Cheshire Woodland Weddings would be the blessing waiting for us. From start to finish Nicole and Steve were on hand for anything we needed at any time day or night and the staff onsite were faultless, happy to help in any way they could. They let us believe we could have a very special day and offer our guest a great day. Well all we can say is they over delivered!! There are no words that could accurately describe just how amazing our day turned out to be, our guests took great pleasure in describing the the event as “THE BEST WEDDING EVER” and we can’t agree more. The same sentiment was echoed by the musicians, photographers, catering staff and videographers. It’s taken a little while to let the reality sink in that it was all real because it honestly felt like something straight out of a movie, a perfect day and an epic start to married life for which we will be eternally grateful. If you want a wedding day beyond your wildest dreams this is the place you are guarantied to get it.

Buchanan Wedding August 2017

Cheshire Woodland Weddings hosted our daughter and her husbands Wedding Reception in August this year and the guests could not get over how beautiful and unique the setting was. If you are looking for a romantic and unique setting I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them as nothing was too much trouble.

Evening Reception

Cheshire Woodland Weddings is a unique and beautiful venue. We hosted my sons evening reception here following their wedding in Taormina, Sicily. From our first visit through to the reception party the staff at Cheshire Woodland Weddings could not have been more attentive, the attention to detail was unbelievable. They listened to all our plans and worked with us to achieve what I can only say was the most wonderful evening for us all. Can't recommend highly enough.
