faye and Charlotte who helped to plan our wedding
Our wedding day was perfect! Faye and Charlotte who helped to plan our wedding were fantastic and always there when needed. They had loads of knowledge and ideas, always contacted us when they said they would and we’re always happy to help. We felt like nothing was too much trouble and that they truly wanted us to have the most magical day. On the wedding day itself all the staff were brilliant again and we felt like it was all about us!

Faye was my wedding organiser, she was fantastic
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.

Never thought we could afford a wedding!
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. Faye, Charlotte and the team were on hand every step of the way to 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

Such a beautiful venue with a special meaning
Such a beautiful venue with a special meaning to us as it is where we met and later married. We had our reception in the marquee and it was incredible. The early stages to the decisions to the prep just before the big day Faye was incredibly helpful and patient with us. The staff on the day were great and everything went as it should and the food was delicious. It felt like everyone went above and beyond to help make our day special and we had the best day ever! Thank you!

I wanted to take the time today to say thank you.
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!!

Faye: "I’ve been at Forest of Arden for over 6 years and have had the pleasure of helping couples plan over 300 weddings. My favorite planning memory so far has to be organizing an entire wedding over Skype with a couple living in Australia!" Charlotte: "My favorite part of planning a wedding is experiencing the excitement unfold as the couples see the venue and everything coming together perfectly during the planning journey. The most memorable part is seeing their wedding day come to life and exceed all of their greatest expectations."
