    Wedding in Foxglove Cabin 10th Aug 2021

    We married in Foxglove Cabin on 10th August 2021. There was a party of 30 of us. Hired Foxglove, Bluebell and both wings of the house. We married outside by the river and the sun shone and our reception was in the oak themed restaurant dancing the night away to a fabulous entertainer called John Penn. All the staff went out of their way to be as accommodating as possible. We took our own wedding decorations and decorated the room the day before. The wedding package for meals and drinks included a meal the night before, Canapes and Prosecco, Wedding Breakfast (Wagyu steak was gorgeous), Wine, Pizzas on evening and a breakfast on the day of leaving.
    Everyone said the day was magical. The scenery was beautiful. My 91 year old mother was outside at 6 every morning, dressed in the complimentary robe, to hear the birds sing and watching the river. I took fairy lights and decorated the balcony of the cabin. We were relaxed and enjoyed every minute which was all we could have asked for. The younger ones in our party experienced life without the internet and it was funny watching them trying to get a signal (which they could in the restaurant) but the older ones really enjoyed the escape from modern technology. On departure we received a lovely wedding gift. Our thanks to Gillian, Rachel, Robyn, Lauren, staff and the wonderful chef. We will be back!

    Nothing but amazing

    We got married at the stunning Hidden River Cabins on 25th October 2018. Right from viewing the venue back in January to after the wedding Gillian couldn’t have been more helpful and went over and above in helping me organise things. The cabins themselves are incredible and all the little details are thought of and catered for. We booked 4 cabins for ourselves and our guests for 3 nights and everyone has already looked into coming back with their families they were so impressed. The surroundings are just so peaceful and beautiful it was just perfect. The food - just wow! Tom is a real credit and has a great talent. Our 3 course wedding breakfast was amazing. It was by far the best 3 days spent with friends and family in the most stunning setting - can not recommend enough!

    So much better than we could have wished for!

    We got married here at the end of September. It was STUNNING! Seriously it could not have been more perfect. Throughout the planning process the team here had been on hand to answer any questions we had and help us create the vision for our wedding. They pretty much gave us free reign in the cabin to decorate it ourselves. Which eventually gave us the foundation to set up our own business (Sawdust & Soul). I cannot than them enough for everything they did for us!

    Great Venue, Lovely People

    Had a great day, really relaxed and chilled, what we both wanted. All the guests had a great time, commenting that the food (bbq buffet and hog roast) was the best that they had had at a Wedding. Very special wedding to remember! X

    A Magical Location

    In September 2018 we got married at Hidden River Cabins. We are from the midlands, but travelling to this venue was well worth it. We could fine nothing else like it. We also had many guests flying in from Ireland and it is well positioned for choices of airports. We took over the whole site which was incredible. Not only was it a day to remember, but a weekend! We hired in a marquee and everything needed to equip this and got married on the site as having an outside ceremony was essential for us. What a view we had. The Hidden River Cabins team are incredible. The wedding coordinator is amazing - supportive from start to finish. We could not have asked for more. All of our guests commented on how wonderful the food was on the day, the chef is a genius. The site is run by a lovely family and they really make you feel at home and part of it from the very beginning. If you are looking for something different, an incredible backdrop, first class food and premium accommodation, this is the venue to go for. Thanks again to everyone at Hidden River for giving us the weekend of our lives. x

    The Wedding of the Year!

    I don't really know we're to start.... Hidden River Cabins was amazing from start to finish! All the team are so friendly and accomidating! So relaxed and helpful. All the way through the planning and preparation Gillian was there to help, and Tom the chef brought our French style wedding breakfast to life. It was the Perfect weekend...... And the setting was breathtaking. I have several head chefs as friends and they all commented on how good the food was..... The lodges and house were perfect for all my guests who all enjoyed their stay. We honestly couldn't have picked a better place to get married, and that was mostly down to Giliian and the Hidden River team...... Thank you so much you made my dreams come true xxx

    The wedding of our dreams

    We had the most amazing Wedding weekend at Hidden River Cabins. Gillian our wedding planner was so helpful and went above and beyond to make sure our special day ran smoothly. We met with the team a few months before to go over food options all of which were prepared to a really high standard. It was nice to meet everyone prior to the wedding and be shown around the venue so we could pick exactly where we wanted the ceremony to take place. The setting here at Hidden Rivers is stunning and we were blessed with warm sunshine for the entire day which meant beautiful photos outside by the river and surrounding land. If you are looking for a cosy, alternative wedding venue set in beautiful scenery then this is the place!

    Perfect perfect perfect

    We got married at Hidden River in July of this year and it turns out the cliche is true - best day ever! What was so great was that it felt like a whole weekend celebration because we had our people staying in all of the cabins and house - happiness everywhere we went. The food was brilliant - Tom really listened to what we wanted and Gillian went out of her way to make sure everything ran smoothly - we really can't thank them enough.

From our very first meeting with the venue, all of the way through to the wedding day itself everyone was so helpful and ensured we had such a wonderful wedding day. It really was perfect and we cant thank the venue enough xx

    Perfect Weekend

    We were married here in June and everything was perfect - the location, the food, the staff. Our wedding party stayed the whole weekend and so many people were blown away by the location, the serenity and the standard of accommodation. One of our guests said he had never been to a wedding like it - in a good way! We weren't local to the venue but they were more than happy to reply promptly to emails that were sent across to them asking for advice or to arrange things remotely. We look forward to returning some time in 2019.

    Absolutely Perfect

    The first time we visited Hidden River Cabins, we knew it would make the perfect wedding venue. The setting is incredible; fields, trees, the river and the log cabins. We knew our wedding would be on the larger side so decided to have a marquee on the first field. We hired a petal pole marquee from Yorkshire Yurts which was decorated on the evening before the wedding after our florist (Fletcher & Foley) had finished filling the marquee with beautiful flowers. Gillian (wedding coordinator) played a huge part in helping make sure the marquee was all set up perfectly for the wedding day which meant we had some time to relax in the hot tubs before the big day. We rented all 5 log cabins for the weekend of the wedding which meant we had complete privacy for the whole weekend. The cabins were the perfect place to get ready and also to relax afterwards. The wedding day itself was everything we had dreamed of. We had welcome drinks and canapés in the cafe area and then headed down the marquee for dinner and dancing. Gillian ensured that everything ran smoothly throughout the wedding breakfast, paying particular attention to guests with food allergies. The standard of the food was exceptional, Tom (the chef) and his team managed to cater for almost 100 guests and every single meal was delicious and presented beautifully. We had a deli style buffet in the evening which was also of a fantastic standard. We knew our guests were all so happy and well looked after by the team at Hidden River Cabins which meant we could enjoy our day to the full with no stresses or worries. We wish we could do it all again! The perfect weekend.
