Carpenter's Barn

This traditional space is licensed for civil ceremonies, guaranteed to impress your guests with its majestic wooden beams and wood burning stove. Its hard wood floors make it perfect for dancing.

Situated at the back of the barn, this light and airy space can comfortably fit your guests for sit down meals.

Reception capacity - 155 guests

Blessings can also take place in the woodlands, perfect for the nature-loving couple.


The sky's the limit when it comes to your wedding breakfast, with the option of choosing a catering service or doing it yourself. Weddings in the Wood can accommodate any menu and have experience working with hog roasts, food trucks and barbecues. There is also a licenced Woodland Bar on-site, with friendly staff serving until 11pm.


The Honeymoon Hut

Celebrate your first night as a married couple snuggled up under the stars in the Honeymoon Hut. Tucked far away from your other guests, the cabin provides you with complete and total privacy, coming fully prepared with a double bed, couch and basin to make you as comfortable as possible. Weddings in the Wood also encourages you to stay for a campfire cooked breakfast the morning after, providing the perfect setting for relaxing and recapping your big day.

Other Guests

There are nine Shepard's Huts on-site, each one providing accommodation for four people in cosy bunks. Each hut is complete with a slow-burning wood stove, basin and candle lantern. There is also ample camping space on the grounds at £5 per person hire.

  • Charlie - Father of the Bride

    We have just had our daughter’s wedding reception at Weddings in the wood and I have only great things to say about the place. The location is amazing, as are the staff that organise the events. All the Shepherd’s Huts were used by guests after the event and I can highly recommend them. I can't thank the staff enough for all they did for us, from organising the reception to running the show on the day. It definitely beats any hotel wedding.

  • Layla Hounsome

    My sister had her wedding here, the staff were so friendly and the venue was so scenic and beautiful. Such an amazing place!

  • Alys Deacon

    We had our wedding at the New Forest Outdoor Centre and cannot recommend the venue enough. The scenery is truly magical and everything we hoped for our woodland wedding. Simon and his team were amazing during the lead up to the big day and throughout. Simon ensured that we had the day we wanted by listening carefully to our ideas and allowing us to make the venue our own for the day. Everything ran so smoothly, I did not have to think about anything on the day itself, this was down to Simon’s efficiency and organisation as well as his management of the small team he worked with.
