We booked our wedding in May 2020 for June 2021 in the Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel & Country Club after cancelling our overseas wedding. Under the circumstances, the planning went as well as possible despite there being unknowns in the run-up to the day. The day itself was better than we could

have hoped for, and it certainly didn’t feel like we had restrictions. The team went above and beyond. We are so grateful to Caroline for overseeing the whole day and Victor who managed to keep everyone ‘hydrated’ almost single-handedly! The weather was beautiful, and the venue was perfect for photos. We had the most amazing day, and we wish we could do it all over again!

My mom and dad had an amazing time - Thank you.

The added extra touches in their room made it memorable for them.
It’s a shame it was all over too soon but looks like they’ve beat the new restrictions that have been set in place - It’s now been reduced to 15 guests.

My mom and dad had

We had the best wedding in June thanks to the incredible team at forest. From start to finish they were amazing and every little thing was thought about! Charlotte, Nicola and Abby went above and beyond to make it so special for us and I couldn’t recommend this Venue any more!!

We decided to book the forest of Arden hotel based upon the excellent show around of the venue by Charlotte, it was upon meeting Charlotte that we truly believed our wedding would be in the right hands and we believed in her that the hotel ticked very box for us in the way of facilities and what

they could offer.
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 chose the Forest of Arden primarily for it's location and accommodation facilities for any guests wishing to stay overnight and the morning following the wedding it was really nice that an area had been cordoned off just for us and our guests so that we could breakfast together.

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.

I think the one thing that made our day outstanding was the food ... our wedding breakfast was absolutely top class. It tasted exactly the same as it did during our tasting selection, every guest said they enjoyed it and the evening hot buffet was served promptly and once again all guests said it was very good.

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.

Thank you to everyone for making our day very special indeed xx
