Full Description
Set in beautiful countryside, Forrester Park is a converted barn with both indoor and outdoor ceremony areas. The rural setting makes a perfect backdrop for photographs. We offer a great variety of wedding formats, from sit-down wedding banquets to barbecues and buffets. Our twilight weddings, with a later ceremony and reception, are also very popular. If you do not wish to have your ceremony with us we are equally happy simply to host your celebration party. Our brochures will give you some idea of the different options we can offer. However, we don't specify a set format or a minimum spend so you can just let us know what you would like and we will be glad to put your day together. Alternatively, we will be delighted to use our many years of experience to advise you and help put together a package. Above all, we are a flexible and friendly venue and will help to make sure that you get exactly what you are looking for on your big day. Our wedding co-ordinator, Alex Bruce, will be happy to discuss your wedding and answer any questions you may have. She and her team would also love to show you round our beautiful venue. We also hold regular wedding open evenings when you can see our venue set up for you to picture your perfect day, enjoy complimentary fizz and canapés and have a chat with the wedding team. Our next open evening is on Thursday 23rd January 2020 from 5pm to 9pm. You can simply turn up but if you would like to reserve a personal appointment to discuss your wedding please contact us. To get in touch, please call on 01621 891406 or email weddings@forrester-park.co.uk. We look forward to seeing you!

A magical day and one we will remember forever.
“Katie and her staff went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly and everybody was happy. From start to finish Katie was on hand to answer any questions and in the evening Leo was equally amazing. There are not enough words of thanks. The food was amazing. The atmosphere was so relaxed. Every guest said how lovely it was and how amazing the staff were. I'm pretty sad that it’s all over now. But we will definitely be back for a visit. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making a stressful day a magical day and one we will remember forever.”
