Venue Service

By Mrs Leach, on 21 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 09 Nov 2019

We had the best wedding in June thanks to the incredible team at forest. From start to finish they were amazing and every little thing was thought about! Charlotte, Nicola and Abby went above and beyond to make it so special for us and I couldn’t recommend this Venue any more!!

Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Ward, on 21 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Nov 2019

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
Venue Service

By Mr Phillips, on 21 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Nov 2019

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’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.

we had a 5star service at a good price
Venue Service

By Mrs Alton, on 21 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 04 Nov 2019

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
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Horne, on 21 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Nov 2019

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.
