Especially perfect ❤︯
Minstead lodge really is a hidden treasure within the New Forest. I fell in love with it the moment I saw it! I couldn’t recommend it enough!!
The lodge itself has such charm and character I knew instantly it was the place for us.
We had exclusive use to the lodge, meaning our reception felt completely private and intimate. Along with the help of the lovely team at the lodge, we were able to completely personalise our whole day and decorate it.
We chose the bar company, our caterers, DJ, everything. Although this does require a bit more organisation it made our wedding completely individual. Lois was so supportive during the planning stages I didn’t have to worry about it all coming together.
Small touches like getting access to set up the day before, setting the rooms up and using the rooms exactly as we wanted is something you just cannot get from another venue.
The look and grounds of the lodge are absolutely second to none, we had a wealth of choice for photos and our guests couldn’t believe they had not heard of the venue when it was so beautiful.
Both Lois & Kim were such a pleasure to deal with and particularly supportive on the wedding day. We had rain and I felt quite anxious when I first arrived at the venue, after seeing them both I was put completely at ease and just felt pure joy. I cannot thank them enough for being so attentive & helpful throughout the whole process.
Above anything else, we completely fell in love with the idea our money was going to charity to help a fantastic cause.
A Magical Day at Minstead Lodge
