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.Sent on 21/11/2019

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.Sent on 21/11/2019
We are so pleased to say that they didn’t 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’t 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’s 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.
