I am so happy with the results!

I had my wedding at the Forest of Arden in early April 2022. There were a few issues at the beggining but Ella took over and organised everything perfectly. She was non-nonsense but was open to different ideas. I am so grateful she came aboard.

We are of Caribean descent and at first we were told they could not have any caribean style food by multiple staff members. However, when Ella stepped into the kitchen, she quickly found a Jamacian staff member who could help us make the menu to our taste. Thankyou so much to them both, they made the wedding perfect. Also, please let its be known to more senior staff members, that you have real talent in your team who can cater to a variety of tastes!

The team at Forest of Arden are exceptional

The team at Forest of Arden are exceptional they went above and beyond to make sure we had a magical day especially since it was a late booking they surpassed our expectations. The venue itself is stunning and immaculate all of our guests commented on how beautiful the hotel and grounds were. Charlotte was our wedding coordinator was in regular contact throughout and made sure we knew the exact details of the days running. She made sure that all the little touches were there and had the patient of a saint when I kept changing my mind. The running of the day by Stefan was fantastic he really is a credit to the FOA, he ensured the day ran smoothly and kept me calm throughout especially since my bridesmaids were late. Special thanks to Tanika who helped me when I had a mini breakdown in the morning as I had made mistakes on the seating plan, she re printed details and made sure everything was correct.
The food was amazing and the rooms were decorated beautifully and all our guest commented that it was one of the best weddings they had been to. Do huge thank you to FOA from Mr & Mrs Ward xx

excellent show around of the venue

We decided to book the forest of Arden hotel based upon the excellent show around of the venue by Charlotte, it was upon meeting Charlotte that we truly believed our wedding would be in the right hands and we believed in her that the hotel ticked very box for us in the way of facilities and what they could offer.
We are so pleased to say that they didn鈥檛 disappoint from the moment we had our final wedding appointment and met the lovely abbey who ran our day we knew we was in safe hands.
The day itself we couldn鈥檛 of asked for anymore Abby and her team most certainly delivered everything we had asked for and they exceeded our expectations on the level of service and food.
We had the most amazing day and felt for the first time since we had planned our big day relaxed and that we was in safe hands the day went without any hitches, even though we had a strange start to our ceremony which was our choice they pulled the whole day off seamless.
We are now so pleased we chose this venue and the nicest thing is all of our guests are still raving about our day and saying it鈥檚 the best wedding they have ever been too which to us is the best feedback you could possibly have.
We are recommending the forest of Arden and Charlotte and abbey to all of our friends for there big day.

we had a 5star service at a good price

We chose the Forest of Arden primarily for it's location and accommodation facilities for any guests wishing to stay overnight and the morning following the wedding it was really nice that an area had been cordoned off just for us and our guests so that we could breakfast together.

I was impressed with our overall cost, we had a 5* service at a good price .... far better value for money that using a 'barn' type venue which charge a fortune just for using the venue and drinks.

Our reception was held in the Aylesford Suite which for 60 daytime guests was intimate without being tight. I didn't want a room with a high ceiling which can seem cold and the Aylesford suite felt very welcoming.
Our evening celebration made use of the adjourning bar, quiet lounge & decking area and accommodated 110 with ease.

The event planning with Charlotte was so easy, she helped and suggested the best way to run our timetable, where to place tables & other items etc and it helped that I used the 'in house' suppliers for certain things. Our pre event meetings were organised and enjoyable, nothing was too much trouble.

Our event coordinator on the day was Suni and he was excellent! He took care of everything and nothing was a problem even when we ran slightly late for the meal, he was polite and welcoming which made us and our guests feel at ease so that we could enjoy our day to the full. Loads of our family & friends who had never been before said what a fantastic venue the Forest of Arden is and that they'd had the best time.

Charlotte at the forest of arden was amazing

Charlotte at the forest of arden was amazing, from when we reserved the date up the week of the wedding. She was so calm and nothing was too much trouble. Stefan who organised our day was also amazing, he dealt with everything. If something was missing or wrong i would never have known as it was dealt with. All of our guests have said it was the best wedding they have been to and i truely believe that was down to the venue.

We had an amazing wedding day at the Forest of Ard

We had an amazing wedding day at the Forest of Arden. We couldn鈥檛 have asked for a better day. The location is beautiful, and the food for both the meal and evening buffet was absolutely lovely. Our guests commented to us on how excellent they felt the food and service was. A special thanks to Charlotte who went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect for us. She organised everything to perfection and was always available if we needed to discuss anything. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she made us feel relaxed and confident that our day would be wonderful, and it was. The organisation on the day was excellent and we were very impressed. All the staff were helpful, professional and friendly. A massive thank you to everyone involved, we had the perfect wedding day :)
