Wrekin Forest Weddings & Special Celebrations

We have created a beautiful space for you to have your alternative wedding blessing, renewal of your vowes or any other milestone celebration! A totally bespoke, unique and beautiful setting to celebrate with friends and family! Re-create that festival feeling or just embrace the natural beauty of the forest. Enter our wonderful tree lined, lawn & meadow area, with a lovely open space containing your barn, bar area, fire space and log seating & tables. A secret pathway has been created through the woodland for the bride’s arrival.

Come and make this space your own by adding your decorations, perhaps you want bunting to weave through the barn or wild flowers to fill the barn, maybe you wish to personalise the bridal pathway. We will leave the personal touches to you!

Give your special celebration an unique twist and bring it to our woodland setting, you can combine the wonderful setting of our party venue with a little active adventure for all the family at Forest School, perhaps some archery and air rifle shooting or team building fun during the afternoon. Combine our two sites to create your unique experience.
