Woodland Weddings in the Safari Tent

We can offer a truly unique rustic woodland wedding experience in a setting which the happy couple and their guests will never forget.

Couples can host their woodland wedding blessing and reception in our beautiful and unique safari tent which is nestled within our tree lined arboretum. Not only is the venue surrounded by some majestic woodland the safari tent has views across the lake with deer grazing in sight on our parkland. Festoon lighting throughout the tent and arboretum means that not only is the venue beautiful by day but twinkles by night!

As well as beautiful surroundings we want to make the day as special as possible for any couples considering us as their venue of choice.

We will provide a dedicated point of contact for our couples to answer any questions they may have, to help them to plan their day and to make it personal to them.

Our safari tent comfortably accommodates 80-100 day time guests, with room for a dance floor and more guests in the evening, however for those planning a larger day, we can discuss further options to accommodate more guests if required.
