"Jeff has family spread out all over so the main point for us was to have everybody together for as long a time as possible and eliminate the ‘moving around’ that we find ourselves doing for more traditional weddings. (From church to reception to accommodation)."
"Fforest offer you the whole camp for the weekend. It was so chilled and easy going – The sun was shining and the blue bells were out – I fell in love and knew that it was perfect!"
"There is a huge range of accommodation for your guests (most of which are glamping), several areas where you can legally be married, a tepee for humanist celebrations and for bands and dancing, fire pits, a pub selling local ales and a large barn for food. It has everything allowing guests to stay Friday to Sunday (or longer if they wish)."
The Weekend Celebrations
"So the majority of guests arrived at Fforest on the Friday night. Jeff and I had made survival kits for our guests – we appreciated that not everyone was comfortable camping and wanted to show them our thanks. We were however, so unbelievably lucky. The weather for the entire weekend was gorgeous not a rain cloud in sight!"
"That night the amazing staff made us soup and cooked pizza’s in their outdoor pizza oven. The pub was made to close by midnight to ensure that everyone was alive the next morning. Saturday started at 7am with yoga and then while the girls drank fizz, ate cake and got ready the guys had a football match."
"Jeff and I were legally married in the Bwthyn with just our immediate family but as we left we realised that all of our guests had gathered around the entrance to cheer and blow bubbles – it was one of our favourite moments!"
"In the evening there was a hog roast ate around fire pits whilst a fantastic 6 piece swing band played and then later on funky beats played by local DJ and friend, Joe Shaw. The night finished up in the pub with Vodka shots and cigars. It could not have been better."
"Everyone was treated to a BBQ breakfast on the Sunday before we said our goodbyes. With everyone saying – let’s do this again same time, next year!"
