Forest of Dean Weddings
Having a wedding in the Forest of Dean sounds really wonderful. Its something that is becoming ever more popular, especially with people who are on the side of mother earth and those who want something more historically traditional.
OK, having your “normal” wedding is cool, the church/ registrar, wedding dress, suited and booted grooms. But, “a special day” is a really a special day and a little imagination can go a long way.
What got me onto this line of thought was the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markel. I was out to tell the world and his wife all about the Forest of Dean Lodges at Coleford and how it would be a fantastic weekend to book in and watch the wedding from there, in great style and comfort.
It was then that it dawned on me that Forest Of Dean Lodges had nothing on the website about wedding receptions, services or Forest of Dean honeymoons.
So, I did a little bit of research on Google and was astonished to find that the weddings ceremony in the forest of Dean was very popular and that there were many places offering weddings services,wedding receptions and even honeymoons in Dean Forest.
Can you host a wedding at Forest of Dean Lodges in Coleford?
Yes! Of course, was the answer From Erica Hastings, the owner of Forest of Dean Lodges in Coleford. When I explained what I had in mind, Erica told me she would send me all the information I need. I will update this post as soon as I get that.
Meanwhile, while I have my thinking hat on, there is, in Coleford, a company that goes by the name of Designed for Beauty, they can do the hair, make-up, tanning and anything else you could think of that goes into the mix for that perfect wedding.
