Full Description
Forrester Park is a traditional style country house based around a 16th century barn and set in beautiful countryside. We are renowned for our friendly service and flexible attitude. All our wedding couples comment on the friendliness of our staff and our relaxed atmosphere; nothing is too much trouble. We are equally suitable for large or intimate weddings and guests can use any combination of areas within the house, as well as the garden and grounds. There is no minimum number and we do not ask you to spend a certain amount. We offer a top quality venue at a reasonable price - our charges include linen, crockery, cutlery, glassware and staff so there are no ‘hidden extras’. We can arrange a disco etc or you are welcome to bring your own. Children are welcome. Our Wedding Co-ordinator can discuss how you would like your day to progress, assist with menu choices and additional wedding services if required and generally be a guiding hand to make the planning as stress-free as possible. Choose a package which includes arrival drinks, three-course wedding breakfast with wine and an evening buffet or select what you want from our extensive selection of dishes which also include buffet and barbecue menus. Forrester Park’s new Millennium Lawn outdoor ceremony area is set in its own ‘secret garden’. The Lawn offers beautiful views over the golf course and surrounding countryside while providing a secluded space for you to celebrate your marriage vows. The rural setting makes a beautiful backdrop for photographs, and you are free to treat the area as a ‘blank canvas’ to decorate to your own taste. The Millennium Lawn can seat up to 150 for the ceremony and you may also wish to make use of our terrace and garden for a celebration drinks reception after the ceremony.
