About Forrester Park wedding venue

Set in beautiful countryside beside a parkland golf course, Forrester Park is an independent venue which has been hosting wedding celebrations for over 30 years. It is available all year round for exclusive hire and is licenced for civil ceremonies.

Forrester Park is a traditional style building, parts of which date back to the 16th century. Behind the scenes is a fully equipped top quality catering operation with its own in-house team of chefs.

Our first floor FORRESTERS SUITE can seat up to 120 people and includes its own bar, dance floor and cloakrooms. The suite is available for exclusive hire throughout the day and evening.

THE CLUBHOUSE, with its vaulted ceiling and cosy beamed bar areas, is ideal for arrival drinks and/or an evening reception. It is available for exclusive hire after 7pm.

French doors open onto THE GARDENS which make an ideal backdrop for photographs. There is also an area for a marquee if required.

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

Our experienced hospitality team is headed by our dedicated Wedding Co-ordinator, Katie Plumb who very much hopes to have the opportunity of meeting you and showing you round our lovely venue. She is available to discuss your plans either by phone or in person, offering suggestions for menus, drinks and formats if required.
