Full Description
  • A Rare Opportunity for a Summer Wedding at Magical fforest in July. Due to a cancellation, we have just released a peak season summer weekend from Friday 7th to Sunday 9th July. Summer dates at fforest normally get snapped up well in advance, so this really is an opportunity not to be missed if you are considering getting married this year. Can't resist but think this won't leave enough time to arrange a perfect wedding? The lovely team at fforest will help you every step of the way, creating a truly memorable wedding weekend for you and your guests. Need more convincing? Take a look through the amazing wedding galleries of relaxed woodland weddings at fforest. https://www.fforestweddings.co.uk/gallery/fforest-weddings-gallery/ fforest is located on the Pembrokeshire / Ceredigion border in West Wales, minutes from the Cardigan Bay Coast. The venue consists of a variety of indoor and outdoor locations, as well as on-site serviced accommodation for 130+ ranging from a grand freshly refurbished Georgian 5 bed, 5 bathroom farmhouse to 20ft diameter geodesic domes (guests pay separately for their accommodation). The site also features a large communal firepit, a cedar barrel sauna and is adjacent to the River Teifi perfect for some pre-breakfast wild swimming. fforest holds a licence for intimate civil ceremonies in our lodge, Bwthyn pub or garden pavilion. Our giant hat tipis seat 80 to 150 guests for a personalised humanist wedding celebration. We will create a delicious wedding day menu to meet your requirements. Our style is relaxed, full of colour and flavour and making the best of local and home-grown produce.
  • Personal Message from the Manager
    Name of Wedding Contact: Helen
    We have been hosting weddings at fforest since 2008 and feel that we have developed the perfect relaxed, rural weekend getaway for wedding parties of 80+. You and your guests stay on site for a minimum 2 night stay, fully catered from the moment you arrive right up to a slap up brunch before a late check out on Sunday. We provide a variety of wonderful spaces, including a giant hat tipi, with furnishings, lighting, bunting and fresh flowers. We're here to help throughout the planning stages.

FAQ
(10)
Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
We couldn't possibly choose one. It amazes us that every wedding is different and always very special in its own way. We are constantly inspired by the creativity of our couples, and we do embrace different!
What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't sweat the small stuff. Detail is important, but if a small detail doesn't go to plan, unless you've publicised it in advance, chances are no-one will notice. The most important things are a great atmosphere, great food and drink and a happy couple.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Bespoke enamel mugs, beautifully designed, well made, so that everyone could have a brew the morning after the wedding at the communal tea station with their special souvenir mugs.
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Relaxed, rural, outdoor, crafted, magical
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
The pre-ceremony woodland walk down to the heart of the camp, followed by the "altar" in the giant hat tipi, with the sides up and the backdrop of an uninterrupted view out across the fields.
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
We've had our share of celebrity musicians, including a well-known lead singer. We've also been in discussion with a celebrity bride for a winter wedding, but can't possibly say more than that!
What’s your favourite canapé?
If I had to choose, then Pear and Perl Las Crostini with a walnut pesto. But they're all great.
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Someone once asked for fishfinger sandwiches, which made us laugh (but, of course, we delivered)
What is your venue's most unique feature?
Just one? The huge communal firepit, the teeny weeny candlelit pub, the cedar barrel sauna hidden in the woods, the quarry, oodles of fabulous bespoke accommodation.........
What part of your business are you most proud of?
The testimonials. Just proves that 10 years of designing, building, researching, decorating, tasting, growing and hard slog has all been worth it. And our staff - although the venue is truly magical, most of our compliments are directed at them and we couldn't do it without the team.
