Wedding 6.4.23 Alyesford suite
I am so happy with the results!
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!
Forest Of Arden
We had the best wedding in June
The team at Forest of Arden are exceptional
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 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
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
Faye and the team were absolutely brilliant
