Bestwood Lodge is steeped in history and set in the magnificent acres of rambling parkland known as Bestwood Country Park. In 1683 King Charles II granted Bestwood Lodge to his son, the Duke of St Albans whose mother was the infamous Nell Gwynn. The Lodge has its own Gothic Chapel with oak panelled walls and minstrel’s gallery, a unique venue for a civil ceremony. The Ballroom is early Victorian in character, with high ceilings and large elegantly draped windows with incredible views over the beautiful parkland. Bestwood Lodge has been catering for Wedding Receptions for many years. You can be confident that your special day will be handled in a friendly and positive manner by your dedicated wedding team.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Every wedding is 'the best wedding' because it brings together two people who love each other and they create their own memories

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

My tip is to always follow your heart with every decision

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

A couple, with children from previous relationships, used all their children as the key people in the day. For example, the eldest son walked the bride down the aisle, the eldest daughter was Maid of Honour, the other son was Best Man, the other two daughters were bridesmaids - it was such a family filled day.
