Fantastic, professional and friendly staff.
“Fantastic, professional and friendly staff. Katie had a fabulous smile all day which, together with her enthusiasm, impeccable organisation and support for us both, ensured the day was enjoyed by one and all. The food was excellent and the chef catered for us gluten free peeps by ensuring the main wedding breakfast was completely gluten free. We would recommend anyone wanting the ‘personal touch’ on their wedding day to contact Katie at Forrester Park.”

The food was on another level.
“Absolutely beautiful day, was a privilege to share it with Christopher and Mary. The food was on another level, so delicious and hot. The staff couldn’t have done more. The roast chicken was probably the best I have ever had. The setting was so romantic, the staff were amazing and it was just a perfect day from start to finish! Well done to all the staff at Forrester golf and country club, and congratulations to my lovely cousin and his bride.”

We all had a magnificent time!
“We had a Twilight wedding at Forrester Park. The pretty outdoor area for the ceremony was absolutely perfect for us and our guests as it was a lovely day. The staff were incredibly helpful and the downstairs area of the venue provided exactly the relaxed and informal atmosphere we wanted for the reception. We all had a magnificent time!”

It was so good here – we did it twice.
“We got married here officially in February and then had our ‘wedding’ on 14th July…on both occasions Forrester Park and its fabulous staff really delivered. On both occasions the food was amazing, the place looked great, the staff were attentive, polite, professional, friendly and fun & the atmosphere was great. I’d highly recommend Forrester Park as a beautiful wedding venue…it was so good here – we did it twice.”
