The Woodlands is more than just a unique forest space – you can hold your ceremony amongst the trees in The Hideaway, or tie the knot in our contemporary indoor venue.

There are also outdoor areas such as a luxury tipi and cosy fire pit for guests to mingle around. Beautifully inscribed wooden signposts guide your party around the grounds, while barrels dotted around the space serve as tables for guests to gather around with drinks in hand. Add mason jars with lit candles for a charming rustic vibe.

When it comes to decor, embrace the beauty of the woodlands surrounding you. The branches provide the perfect opportunity for draped flower garlands, flickering candle-lit lanterns, or pretty paper decorations that can adorn the trees around you.

Our indoor woodland venue also provides the perfect canvas on which to use the decor of your dreams. The huge glass windows let light pour in, illuminating the space with a cosy glow. Bring nature in with branches entwined with ivy, flowers, and garlands, or set up a charming candle display on top of logs from the forest.

Take inspiration from the countryside – wildflowers make for a gorgeous floral setting, mixing familiarity with delicate charm. Channel the magic of the woodlands with primroses, snowdrops, bluebells, anemones, ferns, and fir springs for a deep earthy feel. Or transport yourself to beautiful countryside meadows with poppies, cosmos, buttercups, chamomile, lavender, and ears of wheat.
