Last update: March 2024

Whether it's a small, intimate wedding for a night or a huge wedding celebration for 120 guests staying for 3 nights, Wilde Lodge has the flexibility to make your wedding day uniquely yours. This is the future of wedding celebrations - unique as you are, a home that can be yours to make your own style of celebration.

Accommodation

The choice is yours, depending on the size of your wedding you can have 10 to 120 guests stay on site with you at Wilde Lodge.

The Main Lodge features thoughtfully designed rooms that combine traditional rustic decor with contemporary touches. This space is ideal for housing up to 10 guests overnight.

From May to the end of September there are 3 bespoke luxury bell tents set on raised decking in the garden so you can add an additional 6 guests to those staying in the main lodge.

But if you want the whole wedding party to stay on site with you an entire bell tent village can be set up on site in their extensive grounds.

Ceremony, Dinner & Dance spaces

Next to the Main Lodge is The Long Barn, a recently converted magical area where you can exchange vows in front of 90 seated attendees. This space is also perfect for use as a reception area where you and your guests can party the night away! The barn can be transformed into a chill-out area, cinema, dance floor or cocktail bar.

Opposite the Long barn is the Wilde Safari Tent. This fabulous dark green safari tent marquee is nestled within the old barn walls, complete with its own bespoke 16ft bar. This space can seat 120 guests or can accommodate 150 standing guests.

Looking for somewhere truly al fresco to say your vows or dance the night away, then the open barn can accomodate 120 seated. The open barn has wonderful views over the surrounding forests and can be set up for ceremonies, or just as a comfy chill out area with bar and hay bales.

Our couples also have the option to hold their ceremony on our motte & bailey mound, with stunning views over the River Teme, or on our front lawn with an equally beautiful backdrop - nowhere is off limits, you will be spolit for choice!

Services Offered

Wilde Staff Team - at Wilde lodge you can hire our entire staff team from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave - they are incredible at high end service. You will feel like royalty. All of our couples are also given a dedicated wedding coordinator included in the venue price, who provide as much support as our couples need to ensure that everything runs smoothly, in the lead up to and on your wedding day.

The Wilde Catering team cooks entirely from the outdoor fire kitchen so your guests can wonder up and chat to the chefs and the smells of the cooking are great for adding to the atmosphere and getting the guests taste buds going! However if this isn't your style, our couples are free to book an external caterer of their choice. We also have a list of recommended caterers for all tastes.

The Wilde Bar team can be on-hand behind the stunning 7-meter wooden bar, serving drinks and cocktails tailored to you and your guests. Or if its a small wedding you are after maybe you just want to BYO.

The most magical weekend

We honestly couldn't possibly put into words how happy and in love with our time at The Wilde lodge we are. We got married at the Wilde Lodge in September and it truly was the best weekend of our lives and was just magical the whole way through!
Every little thing was thought of to make sure our weekend was as relaxed (but still very much under control and stress free!) as possible. We really loved that from our first meeting with Jemma to look around less than a year before our wedding we felt so at home and comfortable and like she totally understood what we wanted and that nothing was too much trouble. Each check in meeting we had with Jemma or Hannah was brilliant for keeping us on track with planning but also meant that by our wedding weekend we were able to feel so relaxed knowing it was all taken care of.
We knew we wanted a wedding that was relaxed and less traditional, focusing just around having the chance to spend time and celebrate with our friends and family. Being able to have the whole lodge for the full three days meant we were really able to do that, having a big family dinner friday night was one of the highlights of our whole weekend! Hannah and Jemma took care of all of this for us cooking all the lasagnes and food we brought and laying it all out for us which took a huge pressure off us!

On Saturday morning they again prepared our breakfasts, in the dining room for the girls and out in the open barn for the boys which was so lovely and appreciated! Every member of staff couldn't have been more helpful.

During the whole wedding day they worked so hard making everything run smoothly without making it seem over organised or rushed in anyway at all as can often happen at weddings. Jemma even took my baby nephew and our dog Pippin off for a walk up the driveway while we had our ceremony and they had a lovely time sitting in sun and meant we didn't need to worry at all! All of the children who came to our wedding we so well catered to as well and had a lovely time playing on the lawns and exploring.
The grounds are just beautiful and the safari tent and long barn were the perfect size and we had so much fun decorating them! One of our favourite parts was going for a walk at golden hour with our dog Pippin with our photographer. As we came back down the driveway we could see all or friends and family having a wonderful time all spread out over the lawns, the really comfortable seats and playing lawn games. The food by Csons was absolutely amazing and all of our guests commented on how lovely and different it was.
On Sunday we had a big family breakfast with all our family staying at the lodge and a few friends that came back, again we gave the team all the food on the friday morning and they took care of it all cooking it and laying everything out for our breakfast in the dining room. Our wedding day was just magical but I'll also never forget those times in the dining room relaxing with family which were so special! For the rest of Sunday we were able to have a lovely day opening our cards, going for a walk and off for sunday lunch at a local pub and packing up in a really relaxed way.
I'd say being able to have all this time around our wedding day to just enjoy being together and take our time really made the weekend. With a lot of venues it being a rush to leave the next day, having the time meant we could really stay in our little wedding bubble and turn it into more of a holiday than just one day.
Everything the Wilde Lodge does is just perfect and everything we could have ever dreamed of. They really have it spot on and offer something so unique. We felt like we were welcomed like great friends and all of our friends and family said the same. The house is so comfortable and well equipped.
We can't thank you all enough! Jemma knows we never even visited another venue when deciding where to get married, the second we drove down the lovely Wilde lodge drive and met Jemma we just knew it was 100% the place for us and we were completely right

Amazing venue!

We spent almost a year looking for a wedding venue before finally finding Wilde Lodge. We wanted a relaxed celebration with our closest friends and family for our wedding day and Wilde Lodge was just absolutely perfect.

A huge thank you to everyone at Wilde Lodge for giving us the absolute wedding day. We would definitely be described as wedding averse but all the staff at the venue went above and beyond helping us create the best day and giving complete flexibility with what we wanted to do.

The house itself is absolutely gorgeous and everyone has raved about how great the venue is. The options for small weddings (under 30 guests for us) are also excellent if that's what you are looking for - the spaces are so versatile and somehow felt so intimate yet also a great space if you wanted a bigger celebration.

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding day and can't wait to come back one day!

Best experience ever

Wilde Lodge is quite frankly the best place me and my wife have ever been to, with such beautiful scenery and large space for all of our wedding festivities. We had such a wonderful time with them, and were able to communicate lots with the team, especially Maddy who was able to message us actively throughout the process and qwell any worries that we were having, or answer any questions that came to mind.

As we had a small wedding, it was great that we could take the reigns a lot of the time while also having support with the setting up etc.

It was also a great experience as a same sex couple to not get any discrimination or bias at any point, and to get treated equally.

Would definitely recommend as a wedding venue!

Wilde Lodge is beyond incredible!

It's hard to know where to start in praising Jemma, Kevin, Hannah, Jules, Jess, and all of the staff who worked so so hard before, during and after our wedding day, to make it the very best experience for us and our guests. The accommodation with it's amazing views on site was luxurious, spacious, comfortable, and housed 5 families with small children easily which made the preparations so fun on the day. The different zones at Wilde Lodge were so useful for the different parts of the wedding and everything went so smoothly considering we had a large amount of guests (116). The Long Barn was perfect for our family photographs, the garden was a beautiful backdrop for our confetti walk, and the tent was a magnificent celebratory space for both our ceremony and wedding breakfast. I could go on and on about all of the little details but they did so much for us I would be here all day. Thank you Wilde Lodge.

Perfect venue for a perfect wedding.

Just got back from my son’s wedding at Wilde Lodge. The venue is as beautiful ( if not more so) than the photos. Jemma and her team could not be more accommodating and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. They went above and beyond to make the whole weekend perfect. I can’t recommend it enough. It is just the most amazing, perfect venue.

Perfect!!!

We have now been married 9 months and we can’t stop reliving the most wonderful wedding weekend.

The whole process from start to finish was completely stress free and there wasn’t anything that Maddie, Jemma, Hannah or the rest of the team couldn’t do. They kept in regular contact with us leading up to the day, recommended fantastic suppliers and were exceptional in organising the whole weekend.

Upon arrival, Jemma helped us to unload the cars and set up. She insisted that we took time together to sit down and enjoy a glass of Prosecco. Hannah also brought her homemade cake and biscuits.

The day itself was beyond perfect. Absolutely nothing went wrong; even if it had, we wouldn’t have known because Jemma and the team were all over it. All of our guests also commented on how fantastic the team were.

On Sunday we had a BBQ which Jemma cooked herself and we went to swim in the river which was such a lovely way to end the weekend.

We cannot thank Wilde Lodge enough. It is a weekend we will never forget. We highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a stress free, perfect wedding in an absolutely stunning area. I don’t use the word ‘perfect’ often but there is no other word to describe our whole experience. Thank you, thank you, thank you ☺️

Best place ever

Wilde Lodge is the best venue and the best people you will come across.
We originally had another venue booked, they however went into liquidation, we were on the hunt for another venue for the same date to allow us to keep our suppliers. Fortunately, we found Wilde Lodge and from the moment we spoke to Maddy we knew this was going to be better than the wedding we had originally planned. They were so accommodating and so generous with their time. Maddy was always available for a quick call if we had more questions and really encouraging of our ideas for example we wanted mulled wine for the evening and she made it happen 😊. They put our minds at ease at every turn.
We arrived on the Friday and sadly Maddy was ill, but Jemma jumped in and put our minds at rest. She even ran out and picked us up a quick lunch when we arrived as we’d not eaten but wanted to get stuck in to start setting up.
Jemma had a giant document typed up by Maddy of how the wedding was going to run and the plan for each part. You can tell that they really care.
On the day the staff couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. From running to grab us some orange juice for mimosas whilst getting ready to speeding out to find some thank you bouquets after they’d been forgotten. Honestly I don’t know what more that they could have done for us, the day was absolutely perfect! Everything ran smoothly and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. We all had the best day.
Can’t wait to go back! We cannot recommend them highly enough, if you’re having your wedding anywhere else then you are definitely missing out.

Unbelievable

I cannot thank Jemma and the team enough. From start to finish they have been nothing but helpful, polite, organised and completely understood exactly what we wanted.

The venue itself it’s stunning, relaxed and soo cosy. I loved the fact the we could use every space of the venue for different parts of the day.

Jemma and the team are so helpful, kind and I love them all.

Csons made a special request for our food menu, we wanted a super relaxed day and asked for burgers from their restaurant menu and doughnuts for pudding and it was delicious.

Thank you so much Jemma and everyone at Wilde lodge for going above and beyond for us! All of our guests have said how amazing it was!

Incredible

Jemma and Maddy went above and beyond expectations to make our whole weekend extra special with so many thoughtful gestures. Really cannot thank them, and all of the staff at the Lodge, enough for all of their hard work. The scenery is spectacular, surrounded by nature, perfect for day-after walks from the doorstep, or just relaxing by the campfire watching dawn turn into dusk.

Simply amazing!

(warning - I use the word amazing ALOT)

Where do I even start?
From the very first visit to the last day of our wedding weekend everything was simply amazing.

Leading up to the wedding we had some set backs due to storms, flooding and a global pandemic but the communication and calm from both Jemma and Maddy was simply amazing. We always felt that everything was under control and well organised (even when we weren't).

The venue it's self is a dream. We was very lucky that we were able to have our full guest list and our family stayed together for the weekend In the first time in years, which was very special. Jemma, Maddy and the team made sure everything was perfect from the moment we arrived to the moment we left.

The grounds of Wilde Lodge are beautiful and perfect for wedding photos, ours are amazing. Wilde Lodge is super dog friendly and we had 3 very excitable border collies and they were able to run and be free on the ground which was amazing.

The wedding reception was amazing the food was delicious (I definitely recommend using the catering team at CSONS) and the party was insane. Every single guest had an amazing time. The Wilde Lodge team were always there to help and they would go out of their way to ensure we was all having a great time.

I can't thank Jemma, Our Maddy or the Wilde Lodge team enough for making such an important day simply amazing.

If you are thinking about booking Wilde Lodge, just do it! it will be the best thing you will do. You will have an amazing weekend!
