Wedding in the Wood, New Forest

Mar 21, 2024 | Weddings

If you’re planning a woodland wedding, this is the ultimate autumnal woodland wedding, held at a place literally called Wedding in the Wood!

Jas and Kieren say: “We are going for an autumnal festival feel. We chose you because in an instagram world of beige and greys, we loved how colourful and fun your photos were, plus the fact you love cats meant you were obviously cool people. I looked at hundreds but you’re the ones that stood out! 🙂 Our advice for future couples would be to not be pressured by other people into traditions or norms and just have the day you want. Listen to each other and make compromises.”

Their autumn woodland wedding was at a venue in the New Forest called Wedding in the Wood. And it’s exactly that! The ceremony was held in the middle of the woods, and was magical with all the nature around us.

The woodland ceremony area is a few minutes’ walk away from the rest of the venue, which gives it a nice separation from the party. The reception marquee area is in a large garden, with little huts dotted around the edge for you to stay overnight in.

There’s also a barn attached to the marquee for dancing, and a bar on site too.

Wedding in the Wood wedding venue in the New Forest costs just under £7k if you can set up and clear up on the same day as the wedding, or just under £10k if you want it the day before and after, as well as the accommodation.
