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

The moment I stepped into the lobby of the hotel I knew that the Forest of Arden was the place that I would havey wedding.

everything ran smoothly.
Everyone that attended the wedding have said what a wonderful venue and how wonderful the staff were.

I cannot recommend the Forest of Arden highly enough as a wedding venue. Not only for the beautiful setting and lovely wedding room, but also for the excellent level of service we received from all the staff.

From the very beginning, I received a very high level of attention from the dedicated

wedding coordinator who was always very timely in responding to queries. Furthermore the hotel were excellent in accommodating any specific requests that I had regarding room layout, food, suppliers etc.

My husband's family travelled from Italy, and again they had an excellent experience all the way from check in to check out, thanks to all of the different hotel staff. The feedback I received from them was very impressive.

On the wedding day itself the hotel took care of everything according to the detailed plan that we had agreed beforehand. The food was served exactly on time, and exactly as we had requested it. The room was arranged perfectly, and the event coordinator was excellent in ushering the guests throughout and ensuring that all the different elements of the day happened at the right time.

There is such a high attention to detail that as a bride I was able to relax on the day itself, knowing that the staff would take care of everything.

I received many comments from my guests on the quality of the food, which was absolutely delicious, and also on the venue itself and facilities available. I would not hesitate to recommend the Forest of Arden as a wedding venue, and also think the prices are very reasonable compared to the level of service received.

Charlotte was our wedding coordinator was in regular contact throughout and made sure we knew the exact details of the days running. She made sure that all the little touches were there and had the patient of a saint when I kept changing my mind. The running of the day by Stefan was fantastic he really is a credit to the FOA, he ensured the day ran smoothly and kept me calm throughout especially since my bridesmaids were late. Special thanks to Tanika who helped me when I had a mini breakdown in the morning as I had made mistakes on the seating plan, she re printed details and made sure everything was correct.
The food was amazing and the rooms were decorated beautifully and all our guest commented that it was one of the best weddings they had been to. Do huge thank you to FOA from Mr & Mrs Ward xx

Faye was my wedding organiser, she was fantastic from start to finish.
Very prompt with my questions and if she wasn’t available one of the other ladies would help.
I got a little too stressed the run up to our wedding mainly with table plan however a little meeting with Faye and it was

sorted.
We held our reception in the marquee, it was absolutely stunning and still many of our guests still talk about what a beautiful day it was with many saying “best wedding I have ever been to” and how lovely all the staff were.
We also had a lot of family stay over as some travelled from the Isle of Wight. Faye managed to get all rooms needed (15) at a discount price and all our guests were extremely happy with their rooms.
There’s so many beautiful spots for photos too we have some amazing photos.
At the end of a fantastic day/night myself and my new husband went to our room to find a lovely card, chocolates and my favourite champagne from Faye this was a lovely touch.
We also booked the iron bar for breakfast with all our guests that stayed over.
We have recently celebrated our first wedding anniversary and was invited back for our complimentary anniversary meal. Food was amazing, staff were lovely and helpful. We decided to stay over which is what we have decided to do every year on our anniversary.
Beautiful hotel and nothing is too much trouble for staff.
Thank you very much for helping to make our wedding day just perfect.

We visited the wedding fayre the year before and never thought we could afford a wedding at such a beautiful venue, how wrong I was! The team put together a quote on what we wanted our day to look like and it came in under budget.

make sure our day was perfect even little touches like champagne and chocolate in the room we could have spent thousands or even just hundreds and nobody would have known as nothing was scrimped on and the canapés were amazing.
Our day was perfect from start to finish and if I could give more than five hearts we would as it’s a fantastic beautiful venue with hard working loyal and friendly staff

I wanted to take the time today to say thank you. Faye; you were there through the entire planning stages. Any question I had you were there at the end of the email ready to answer them, no matter how big or small my question was, you were there to help. Nothing was ever too much for you and you

helped us out so much over the 19 months of planning. So thank you so much for all your help!! Now we move to the day itself and now I turn to Stacey. All those months of planning and preparing came together on the day, and you helped ensure the day ran smoothly. From start to finish on Friday I felt at ease with everything, and that is thanks to you. Again nothing was too much when we asked and you were always there whenever we needed you. So to you Stacey, I also thank you so much for your help!! All the guests commented on the day saying how wonderful it was. We were lucky to have the weather on our side, and could not have asked for a better day. The guests had nothing but lovely things to say about the venue, the rooms, but more importantly the staff! Everyone commented on how welcomed they felt from the minute they walked into the hotel, and I know Andrew and I certainly felt the same way. I’ve said it once and I will say it again and again if I have to - from the bottom of our hearts, thank you so so much for helping make our day perfect!!

We were so overwhelmed by the whole day, everyone commented on how wonderful the day was and the kindness and support the staff were. We couldn’t have asked for anything more you and the team were wonderful and to receive all the wonderful gifts and how the room was presented was lovely.
