What the couples say

Here are a few testimonals from couples who have come along to one of our previous Wedding Showcases and booked a New Forest venue:

“Thought it was great that the New Forest Hotels all get together and put on a Wedding Showcase for the whole Forest. This meant that I could visit all the hotels and enjoy the scenery of this great part of UK. Every Hotel taking part had taken the trouble to set up for a wedding so you could really get a feeling of how it would all look, and everyone was so friendly and helpful it was easy to choose our favourite and book.”

“Just want to thank The New Forest for putting on their Wedding Showcase – all the hotels were so welcoming and we could get all our questions answered in a whole range of venues in one day, not forgetting how good it was to meet all the suppliers so we could discuss all the extras too – well done New Forest, a pity every part of UK does not follow your example!”

Your wedding day is one of the most important and romantic days of your life together, so it is only natural to want to spend the day in picturesque surroundings. The choice of where to hold your perfect day is perhaps the first decision you make after having said ‘yes’ to the life changing question; ‘Will you marry me’?
