Magical day we will remember forever
“Katie and her staff went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly and everybody was happy. From start to finish Katie was on hand to answer any questions and in the evening Leo was equally amazing. There are not enough words of thanks. The food was amazing. The atmosphere was so relaxed. Every guest said how lovely it was and how amazing the staff were. I'm pretty sad that it’s all over now. But we will definitely be back for a visit. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making a stressful day a magical day and one we will remember forever.”

I could not fault a single thing
"What a fantastic venue for a wedding, my daughter and son-in-law got married in October 2018. Organisation was fantastic, led by Katie, and I could not fault a single thing. Katie’s commitment to making sure the wedding ran really smoothly was above and beyond what we could have expected. I would have no hesitation in recommending the venue, and above all, Katie. Thank you all so much for a wedding that ran to perfection."

It was everything we had hoped for and more.
“Could not have asked for more!!!! We had a twilight wedding and it was everything we had hoped for and more. Katie and her team were absolutely superb, nothing was too much trouble. The service was first class and the food (BBQ) was divine, all of our guests commented on how lovely it was. We didn’t want pomp, we wanted casual and relaxed and that is exactly what we had thanks to Katie and Forrester Park. Will definitely be recommending to others who are planning their big day.”
