The ancient, romantic New Forest has many stunning wedding venues capable of hosting everything from a small intimate wedding to a gathering of as many as 400 guests to witness your special day. With scenic backdrops abound, you may want to hire a professional for your New Forest wedding photography to best capture your day. The choice of wedding venues in the New Forest is amazing with numerous churches and hotel venues in Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst, Burley, Beaulieu and Lymington.
However, if you are looking for something a little more unusual, we have picked three wedding venues in the New Forest to consider.
The Countryside Education Trust
A treehouse wedding here will stun your guests and provide a unique experience for your wedding day. The Countryside Education Trust’s private woods are on the Beaulieu estate with wonderful dappled sunlight perfect for wedding photographs. There are two tree houses, the larger of which has a decking area with trees growing up through the floor and a platform offering beautiful views over the treetops. With the ability to accommodate 90 people seated or 120 for a buffet style meal, this may be the perfect venue for you.
Exbury Gardens and Steam Railway is a well known visitor attraction, but few people realise that the gardens also provide a wonderful location for weddings. Both the ceremony and the reception can be held in these lovely surroundings, and as only one wedding per day is booked, you and your guests will be able to enjoy exclusive use of the gardens and enjoy the seasonal display. Whatever time of year you decide to get married, Lemontree Photography or the photographer you choose should be able to advise on backdrops in these beautiful gardens.
Perhaps most famous for its Motor Museum, Beaulieu offers various unique venues for weddings. The Domus, which was the lay brothers’ dormitory in the 800 year old abbey, can accommodate up to 150 guests in a historically impressive setting whilst Palace House, the home of the Montagu family, is suitable for smaller gatherings of up to 60 guests. For larger weddings a marquee can be provided.
Situated just 90 minutes from London, this romantic area has so much to offer the bride and groom. Whether you are a resident or live further afield, the New Forest could provide the ideal location for your wedding day.
