Wedding July

I had the best time having my wedding here. Would 1000% recommend. They did everything they could and helped out so much. The day would not of gone by so smoothly without the team. What they charge is definitely worth it. Food was amazing. Everyone had nothing negative to say. Best day ever and I would get married here

Low Wood Resort & Spa

From enquiring to hosting our Wedding Day, we feel the Low Wood wedding team were brilliant and would highly recommend people to book their wedding at the Low Wood. We really loved the venue, it was actually the only one we visited prior to booking. The only flaw I could find was booking hotel rooms for the wedding party, because it was a little mixed messages from Wedding Team and Hotel Booking team. However, the Wedding Team sorted for us and were brilliant in dealing with all our requests in the build up and allowing slight alterations to their standard package/menu. Overall, we found the team really helpful and easy to deal with which made the build up to our wedding very relaxed.

Thank you so much Low Wood!

What a wonderful day to remember. Thanks to Low Wood everything went so well and gave us the wedding we dreamed of. Thanks to the lovely Ewelina and the team who was always there for support and made sure everything went well! Can't wait to go visit again in the future!

Amazing from the first meeting!

If you are considering booking your wedding at Low Wood, my advice is to dive right in!
From looking round the venue as a general enquiry, they could not do enough!
We had to delay our wedding due to the dreaded covid but everything just moved so seamlessly!
Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and it was definitely down to the precision of the whole wedding coordination team.
Due to us living a bit of a drive away, we dealt a lot with Rachel and the team by email, they answered so efficiently and went above and beyond to ensure all queries were dealt with.
I’m actually gutted our wedding is over now as we won’t be in such regular contact!
We cannot thank Rachel and the team enough for such an amazing time and all of our guests regularly tell us just how amazing the day was.
Please can we do it all again?!

Low Wood Bay was the perfect wedding venue and went way beyond our expectations! The Gallery Room is stunning for a ceremony and wedding breakfast.

From the day we booked, the wedding team were an absolute joy to deal with. They helped make our memorable day even more special and we cannot recommend a wedding at Low Wood Bay highly enough. Staying in The Winander Club was AMAZING and the Spa was fantastic. Food in the hotel was incredible and you really cannot beat the Lakeland views ♥️

Amazing day!

From day one of just going to look round, to our wedding day, Low Wood have been amazing!

The wedding team have always been very responsive & no question was daft enough for them! They couldn’t be anymore helpful if they tried!

On the big day, they set everything up perfectly & we’re always on hand for anything we may have needed. If anything had gone wrong, then we didn’t know about it, everything was so seamless.

The location is absolutely stunning & the spa is definitely worth a visit!

100% would recommend & thank you once again to the wedding team! ❤️

Masters of their craft

Amazing venue & amazing team

We had such an amazing experience with Low Wood Bay. The wedding team are so lovely and extensive and made our day very special. The team were happy to have several meetings with us to help us feel calm and prepared. Communication was strong and the team helped by recommending local vendors they have worked with previously. Our guests all loved the food and the service was outstanding. The team also co-ordinated with our parents to help them surprise us with singing waiters on our big day. The venue is in a beautiful location allowing you to easily get those must have shots by the lake. Definitely recommend!

Mrs Emma Gorton

We had our wedding at Low Wood in June 2023. The venue was perfect, all of our guests expressed how amazing the venue was including the food and service throughout the day it was just perfection. I had full faith in Lucy and the rest of the wedding team and was able to leave them to sort aspects of the day with not worrying myself. The day couldn’t have been anymore perfect and that’s all down to low wood bay.

Low wood Bay Wedding 27.10.2019

I can highly recommend the Low wood Bay resort and Spa as a wedding venue. We had our small wedding there in the Gallery room, which was perfect for us and our needs. The hotel service is fantastic, the views of the Lake are absolutely stunning and there is a really relaxed laid back, vibe about the place that instantly puts you at ease.
Our Wedding Planner Rachel was outstanding, so friendly, personable and helpful. She gave us some great advice and helped tailor our day so that it was exactly how we wanted it, I couldn’t have asked for more. So much was organised by the venue, that we could rest assured that everything was ready for the big day, this helped take a lot of the stress out of it. In the days before and on the actual wedding day, we felt relaxed and stress free and could just thoroughly enjoy the day.
The food was excellent, such a high standard, from the canapes to the wedding meal/evening buffet. All my guest complemented the food and all said it was genuinely a fantastic day. Everything about the Low wood is 5 star, in my opinion and I couldn’t fault a thing about it.

Perfect Wedding

We recently got married and had the most amazing day at Low Wood. The wedding team were so helpful and responsive throughout the whole process and made the day run so well. All of the staff in the hotel throughout our weekend couldn't do enough for us and our guests and helped the day run like clockwork. The setting is amazing also with various settings and backdrops for some beautiful pictures! We made use of the spa facilities the day after too which was a lovely relaxing end to the weekend. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Low Wood as a wedding venue and just wish we could do it all again!
