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!

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.
