Fantastic Festival Style Wedding in The New Forest

Choosing to have your wedding in the spring can be a risky thing when it comes to weather in the UK – especially if you plan to have a festival style wedding where most the event relies heavily on good weather and enjoying the outdoors.

Luckily for Beth and Tom they had lady luck on their side as (despite the weather forecast) the sun shone through for all of the long May Saturday.

The wedding venue the couple had chosen was incredibly original, super quirky & uber cool. Beaulieu Treehouse in The New Forest at the Countryside Education Centre. Yes that’s right an actual treehouse in the middle of the woods that is typically used as a classroom.

Today it was a woodland wedding hideaway and it was just perfect for a couple with a love of the left field and doing things in their own unique and non-traditional way.

The Treehouse Venue.

Only a few couples are lucky enough to marry at the Treehouses here, the venue owners have special permission for only 12 weddings a year. The venue is truly unique, nestled in Treehouses in private woodland, and beautiful in every season. Beth and Tom’s wedding took place in late may and the sense of greenery surrounding us was a beautiful thing.

The Treehouses present a wonderful backdrop against which your imagination can run riot. The venue state that every couple brings their own unique interpretation to their special day, from Retro & Classic Country to Robin Hood and Festivals!

Ceremonies take place in one of the treehouses which links to the other via a hanging rope bridge – as a wedding photographer for over five years I have never seen adults and kids alike get so much joy from their surroundings when attending a wedding.

Festival Style Wedding.

To add to the real sense of fun he treehouses are nestled on the edge of the woods, to which guests have full access, and is where my couple really went to town with the festival vibes. Outdoor games and a wooden makeshift Photo Booth were incredibly popular with the guests but the highlights for me was an acoustic performance around the campfire from one of the guests along with the bride’s brother-in-law acting as MC. Everyone got completely into the spirit.

For the evening it was back up to the treehouses for dancing the night away.

New Forest Wedding in Dorset.

The New Forest is a beautiful part on England to not only host your wedding, but to visit for a get away.  It is one of the largest remaining tracts of unenclosed pasture land, heathland and forest in the south of England, covering southwest Hampshire and southeast Wiltshire.

The Forest itself is made up from four larger ‘defined’ villages, Sway, Brockenhurst, Lyndhurst and Ashurst, with several smaller villages such as Burley, Beaulieu, Godshill, Fritham, Nomansland, and Minstead also lying within or immediately adjacent. The Treehouse venue featured here is close to Beaulieu and it’s National Motor Museum.
You can also easily access the south coast. The small resort of Lymington is within easy reach (from here you can make the short trip across the Solent to the Isle of Wight). At the other southern end of the Forest you can head to Southampton which offers everything you would expect from a large modern port.
